What Is A Soulmate & When You'll Meet Yours, According To Your Zodiac Sign

What is a soulmate? When you think about soulmates, you probably think about those corny romance novels or any Disney princess movie.

A soulmate is someone who understands you and loves you on every level. They respect you emotionally, mentally, and physically, and would never dream of harming you in any way.

Soulmates don't always have to just revolve around romantic partners; soulmates can also be a best friend or a stranger you met on the street. There are plenty of ways to attract others, but the key aspect of a soulmate is the inevitable connection between two people.

What are the different kinds of soulmates?

1. Twin flames

A twin flame is basically the ideal example of a soulmate. A twin flame is a person who completely matches your energy and understands you on every level. However, sometimes finding your twin flame isn't the best idea.

Once you find your twin flame, that person is basically a mirror image of yourself. They share your same passions and interests, pet peeves and quirks. While this may seem like a match made in heaven, it can also be difficult to have everything in common with your significant other.

2. Connecting souls

Connecting souls is another form of soulmates that happens to be more related to a romantic relationship.

A connecting soul is someone who you may not end up being with forever, but someone you could see yourself possibly living with or even having kids with.

3. Platonic soulmate

The last type of soulmate that's probably the most common is the non-romantic soulmate. These are your best friends, practically family, who know you inside out and can easily call you out when they need to.

These aren't your future boyfriend or girlfriend, but rather your confidant in life. We would be nowhere without our best friends helping to guide us. This soulmate could be a co-worker, a teacher, or just simply the boy or girl next door.

Now, when we add astrology into the mix, the meaning of a soulmate is different for each zodiac sign.

What does each zodiac sign need in a potential soulmate? This is what each sign needs in a soulmate and when they will meet them.
