Finding your soulmate is incredibly special, and astrology can help you learn more about who your soulmate is and when you will meet them.

You might not always realize that you’ve met them at first, but as you get to know them better and your bond grows stronger, you can just tell that they are more than just a partner or a lover.

Soulmates take relationships to a whole new level. Instead of just having romance and affection, the person you're supposed to be with forever provides you with friendship, happiness, communication, confidence, and so much more.

When you’re with your soulmate, you are totally content — and when you’re not with them, you want to make them proud in whatever you do.

Some people meet their soulmate when they are very young and know right away that this person isn’t like everyone else. Other times, people don’t meet them until they are much older, or they may realize that after all these years their best friend or lost love was their soulmate all along.

It can be scary at first to realize that you have a soulmate.

Sure, there will be times when you are in absolute bliss with them, but then there are other times when you don’t even want to be in the same room as them.

All relationships have their ups and downs, but what makes being with your soulmate different is that you can come back from something really ugly and still have so much love in your heart for them.

Whether you like it or not, soulmates are real.

People born under some zodiac signs might not believe in soulmates — or even want to find their own — but the one of the best things about soulmates is that they only present themselves when you’re ready for them.

And when you hit a rough patch in your life, they are always there to be a shoulder to cry on or someone to cheer you up.

Who knows? You may meet yours sooner than you think ...

When you'll meet your soulmate, according to astrology

Aries (March 21 - April 19): 25 years old

Aries meets their soulmate around the age of 25; a time when they're still maturing and trying to figure themselves out. This is also a crucial time for their soulmate to see them exactly as they are.

Aries never hides their true self from anyone, but chances are pretty good that being with them in their natural habitat (partying, going after their goals, and having fun) will help anyone get to know them better.

This phase in their life will be all about enjoying the present; their 30s will be about settling into a routine that works for them and their soulmate.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20): 18 years old

Taurus meets their soulmate when they are 18 years old. Obviously, they are still very young, but there is something exciting about being young and in love (not to mention seriously romantic).

Taurus doesn’t necessarily know if this relationship will go anywhere.

But at an age when everything is still a mystery and your friends are the biggest part of your life, having a soulmate who can relate to exactly what they're going through is what they want most.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20): 19 years old

Gemini will meet their soulmate when they're around 19 years old, but there’s a good chance they won't know they found their soulmate until a few years later.

Whether they meet them at college or out with friends, there is something intoxicating about this person; they will click immediately and it’ll feel like they’ve always known each other.

Gemini definitely won’t be comfortable making commitments to anyone right away (and their age will make them think twice), but even if they lose touch with their soulmate for a few years, they will always be in the back of their mind until they run into each other again when they’re both more mature.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22): 21 years old

Cancer has been dreaming about true love since they were little, which is why it’s no surprise that they will meet their soulmate when they're 21 years old.

They want their ideal relationship to be full of romance and respect, two things they learned were most important at a young age.

Cancer makes soulmates look naïve and mature at the same time.

Holding hands and innocent kisses, along with being able to talk about anything, no matter how difficult, are things that people twice their age are still figuring out, yet they somehow make it look so easy.

Leo (July 23 - Aug 22): 27 years old

Leo hates the idea of being in a serious relationship until they know what they want out of life first. This can take a while, and there will definitely be some times when they wonder if they made a good decision to wait, but in the end, they end up becoming the best possible version of themselves during this time.

Leo meets their soulmate when they are about 27. By then, they know what they want to do in life, they're on the way to making a name for themselves, and they're young enough for love to feel like it would have if they were a teenager.

Age doesn’t really matter to Leo, as long as they can say that they made the most out of all the opportunities they have in life.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Maybe never

Virgo hears about soulmates from people who have found theirs, but has always had a hard time envisioning themselves finding their own soulmate. No matter how hard they try (or don’t try), they can’t seem to find the connection they need to have with someone for them to be their soulmate.

Even if Virgo never finds their romantic soulmate, they will always have friends who feel like soulmates.

They are the exception to the rule: you don’t have to be in love to have a soulmate. Instead, they fill their life with meaningful relationships, hoping they will find someone even slightly close to being a soulmate.

Libra (September 23 - October 22): 20 years old

Libra meets their soulmate at the awkward age of 20, when they aren't a teenager anymore, but not really a full adult yet, either.

There will be a lot of imbalance in their life, which can lead to a lot of soul-searching and looking for answers.

Libra will find their soulmate in someone who is their best friend; a person they can talk to for hours on end who will make them forget everything for a while.

Even if nothing happens between them right away, they will always be grateful to have someone so in tune with them; someone who can read their thoughts.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): 17 years old

Scorpio will meet their soulmate when they are around 17 years old.

Still a child at this age, they don't really know what to do with this outpouring of emotions they're having. They might not want to admit that they have such strong feelings for someone at such a young age, but it’s exciting and thrilling to them to have a soulmate.

Scorpio’s soulmate is someone they have spent countless summers with and who, even if they aren’t together, they constantly think about. Unlike other relationships they may later encounter, this one always feels new, which is why it’s so important to keep around.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 19): 28 years old

Sagittarius loves being free and on their own, which is why they won’t meet their soulmate until they're around 28.

They don't even want to think about commitment until their mid-20s, so it only makes sense that their soulmate wouldn’t show up until they are starting a new phase of life.

It may be hard for them to accept that their soulmate isn’t going anywhere at first — especially because they aren't used to these new feelings — but give them time and they just might surprise you with how well they fall into this routine.

Sagittarius will still need their space and freedom, but their soulmate will already know and understand this.

Capricorn (December 20 - January 19): Early 30s

Capricorn has a lot of reservations about soulmates in general. Even if you just mention soulmates in a conversation, they will probably roll their eyes at you.

They often gravitate towards realistic, mature relationships and soulmates just sound childish to them.

Capricorn will most likely meet their soulmate when they are in their early 30s.

This is a time when they are learning to accept and expect surprises in life, so when they finally meet their soulmate, they’ll think, “Why not?” They like the idea of already having their life together before getting serious with someone and will want to take their sweet time to make sure they are worth it.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): 22 years old

Aquarius doesn’t seem like the type of person to fall in love so quickly and at such a young age (I’m talking 22 years old), but soulmate relationships are more about connecting on a deeper level with one person than you do with anyone else than they are about romance.

They often don’t feel like people understand them, but at a time when they definitely need someone to listen to them and love them no matter what, a soulmate is exactly what they need.

Aquarius and their soulmate will spend all night talking and bonding, which will only make their bond as friends even stronger.

Aquarius insists on a strong foundation before anything else can happen, so they need to take it slow until they can trust that they mean as much to their soulmate as they do to them.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20): 19 years old

Pisces loves the romance behind soulmates and will secretly be dreaming about their own soulmate until they find them.

When they tell the story about how they met when they were 19, they’ll make everything sound like a fairytale. Falling in love at 19 will be special to them, especially since it's an age when romance has intense meaning.

Whether they are starting a new chapter in their life or meeting new people who make them look at the world in a different way, their soulmate will just be another exciting new journey for them to start in life.
