6 Zodiac Pairings Who Are Kindred Spirits

They share a special bond.

Many people seem to be confused with the terms "spirit animal" and "kindred spirit" and use them interchangeably. A spirit animal is the shamanic belief of a spirit that guides, helps, or protects people or groups. However, people also use the term spirit animal as a metaphor for someone or something that a person relates or admires.

But a kindred spirit is a person who shares a special bond with another person. It’s a magnetism that draws people together into a higher level of consciousness. Generally, a person only has one kindred spirit in their lifetime as it is a unique connection. It may not be as mythical as a spirit animal but it's just as magical. 


As for each zodiac sign's kindred spirit, there are certain pairs of signs that work well together in this sense. And when it comes to astrology, if you haven’t met your kindred spirit yet, it’s helpful to know which zodiac signs they’re likely to have been born under. This isn’t to say you should reject a potential kindred spirit because they’re not the sign suggested, but knowing which other sign has the highest chance of being your kindred spirit is helpful to know.

The person who is your kindred spirit will always have your back, and you will always have theirs. Your connection is so deep that often times you finish each other’s sentences and thoughts, and words aren’t even necessary to communicate between the two of you.


The understanding that the two of you have goes far beyond just being sensitive or sympathetic, it’s more like you share the same heart. You don’t need to explain your feelings — they already know.

Finding your kindred spirit is a gift and not something that sound be taken lightly. There is a responsibility to the relationship and an unspoken promise that neither of you will ever purposely try to hurt one another.
