What is the meaning of an old soul? It means that if you have lived through many many lives, you have a lot of knowledge. You will not feel like you fit in unless you are with those who are just like you. Older souls are the ones who live through more challenging lives because they are more evolved than younger souls. If you suspect you an old soul and have been through many more challenges than your siblings, perhaps they are newer souls than you are.
However, mature souls have a challenging time, even more than old souls. That is because mature souls have the mentality of an old soul but still have the same values as younger souls. Therefore, it can cause a lot of inner friction.
And one way to have an idea of how your zodiac sign indicates your souls find out how old your soul is based on your zodiac sign.

Taurus – Adolescent Soul

Aquarius – An Old Soul That Has Lived Many Lifetimes
