Mintaka Starseed – Traits, Signs, Mission and Appearance

22 minute read

As the planet is currently going through an important transition period – the birth of a new Earth – more and more old souls have volunteered to come down here and help make this process as smooth as possible. They come from different planets, star systems and universes and the most common are the Pleiadians, Sirius, Andromedans, Arcturians, Orions and Avians.

In this article we are going to focus on the beautiful Mintakans.

What is a Mintakan Starseed? 

Mintakans are beautiful, rare, compassionate and wise old souls. Mintakas or Mintakan Starseeds are one of the many starseeds we currently have on our planet. In a manner of speaking they are one of the oldest non-native races which occupy Earth in terms of how long they have been present. Being one of the first inhabitants on the planet when fourth dimensional life began to form, it is believed that their souls have been incarnating for approximately 70,000 to 75,000 years. 

The soul is a kind of an archive of information and experiences. Often Starseed personalities are influenced by the countless lifetimes they’ve had on their home planet. Mintankans in particular are characterised by their kind and good natures, coming from a watery planet where light and love found the basis of nearly every interaction.

We can only imagine how difficult it must be for a Mintankan soul to adjust to an environment like Earth which has such dense energies. Like many starseeds from harmonious and community driven worlds, the low frequencies such as fear and hate are very difficult to adapt to (check out the Hawkins scale of vibration). 

Mintakan Starseeds obtain great strength from being involved with positive and spiritual communities as it is reminiscent of their Utopia-like home world. There is a desire for these Starseeds to create a new world of harmony on Earth and they often find themselves being in positions of influence or value in spiritual environments, usually as per their soul missions. 

These Starseeds also often incarnate into configurations with a great activation of the heart and violet chakras, allowing for particularly radiant personalities. This crystallisation of positivity and love is an asset to Earth as it assists in the raising of the planetary vibration in this period of ascension. 

Mintaka Starseed Origin

The Mintaka star is located in the constellation of Orion and is one of the three main stars that form Orion’s Belt. The constellation of Orion has been the subject of many myths and stories in various cultures throughout history. In ancient Greek mythology, Orion was a legendary hunter who was transformed into a constellation after his death. In some Native American cultures, the three stars that make up Orion’s Belt were said to represent three sisters or three hunters.

Here are some facts about Mintaka:

Fact Description
Star Mintaka
Constellation Mintaka is a star located in the Orion constellation, which is one of the most prominent and recognizable constellations in the night sky.
Position Mintaka is one of the three stars that make up Orion’s Belt, along with Alnilam and Alnitak.
Star System Mintaka is classified as a multiple star system, which means it is actually made up of three stars: Mintaka A, Mintaka B, and Mintaka C.

The three stars in the Mintaka system are hot, bright, and blue-white in color.

Brightness Mintaka A is the brightest star in the system

Mintaka A is the most massive star in the system, with a mass about 20 times that of the sun.

Distance Mintaka is located about 1,200 light-years away from Earth, which means that the light we see from it today has been traveling through space for over a thousand years.

The planet which Mintankan Starseeds associate themselves with has been named Artuvia and was a planet composed mostly of crystal clear water. 

Though beings on Artuvia primarily lived underwater, they did have the capability to walk on land, and breathed air just as we do. It is highly unlikely that they were breathing anything similar to our combination of Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide, however they had a similar system of breathing to underwater Earth mammalians- they existed primarily as sea creatures though came up occasionally for air. It is said they could spend around three days underwater without pause and could to a degree breath through the skin. If they so wished they could potentially spend even longer periods underwater using technology their society developed. 

Artuvian water was very different to Earth water. It was so transparent you could see through it as if you were looking through polished glass. The water’s molecular structure, combined with how the planetary system interacted with the laws of physics gave the water a lightness that we are unfamiliar with. It was less dense than Earth water and could be moved through quite easily in comparison. 

For these reasons Mintakan Starseeds have a very intense relationship with water. It may be a great love for water, or a great aversion to water in response to how dense and murky Earth water appears to be. This depends on the personality of the Starseed and how they unconsciously interact with their own past life memories.

The home planet of Artuvia is no longer habitable, due to there being a destruction of their environment. It is speculated this was caused by negative-oriented beings operating in the local galaxy. Artuvian souls were transferred to Earth as their new permanent home, resulting in strong feelings of homesickness and longing for their paradise-like home world through their lifetime. 

Mintaka Starseed Mission

Mintakan starseeds have incarnated on Earth with the mission of raising the planetary vibration and assisting in the spiritual evolution of humanity. Like other off-world soul groups, they have come to Earth in a variety of roles, each with their own unique gifts and abilities.

Mintakan starseeds may be drawn to work in areas such as energy healing, spiritual teaching and counseling, creative expression, activism, and other forms of service that support their mission of raising the planetary vibration. They may work as healers, artists, writers, musicians, activists, or in any other field that aligns with their spiritual path and allows them to contribute to the greater good.

The specific nature of the work that a Mintakan starseed undertakes is determined by their own unique gifts, abilities, and spiritual path. Some may feel drawn to work with energy, using their abilities to heal and clear blockages in others. Others may feel called to share their spiritual knowledge and insights through teaching, writing, or counseling. Still others may use creative expression, such as art or music, as a means of transmitting higher vibrational frequencies to those around them.

Ultimately, the work of Mintakan starseeds is to assist in the ongoing spiritual evolution of humanity, to raise the planetary vibration, and to help create a more loving, peaceful, and harmonious world. Afterall, Mintakans are also lightworkers and they are here to share their light with the world.

Mintaka Lightworker

As lightworkers, Mintakas go through a few challenges. Because of their radiance and compassion, they often find themselves in positions of being around those who need their positivity. Though these contracts are pure in nature, once manifest it is often found that Mintankans struggle to set boundaries and end up either draining themselves or being taken advantage of. 

The current lesson humans are attempting to learn as a collective is the necessity and ultimate truth behind unconditional love and unity. These concepts are deeply understood by Mintakans and they are currently undergoing the challenge of expressing these understandings whilst integrating with an environment where these concepts are systematically undervalued. It is for this reason a lot of Mintakan starseeds are at risk of being taken advantage of, as they have a philosophy of giving which sometimes is not reciprocated by others in a fair way. 

Mintaka Starseed Appearance

The physical bodies which Mintakan souls on Artuvia used as vehicles for incarnate experience, were what we would understand to be mermaids. Of course, it was hardly anything like our depictions of mermaids, however there are similarities in the sense that these were bipedal, underwater, self-aware beings. 

From our standards of beauty and aesthetics these beings would appear to look extremely alien, with little resemblance to humans apart from a similar structure of limbs on the body. It has been speculated by many that our myths of mermaids and an underwater civilization however come from the memories of these Starseeds, as they had quite an advanced underwater society.

These beings had the ability to communicate telepathically and were highly intelligent. They had developed technologies that allowed them to build advanced underwater structures and to explore their environment. While these beings are believed to be a part of a different civilization on a distant planet, the idea that humans may have had some sort of contact with them in the past has been explored in some works of science fiction.

When it comes to their physical appearance on Earth, they can incarnate in basically any type of body or race in every corner of the world.

The Mintaka Soul Family

Members of the Mintaka soul family are believed to share a deep connection that transcends physical lifetimes, and to have a particular affinity for one another that arises from shared experiences across different lifetimes.

These souls may have traveled through multiple lifetimes together in order to learn and grow together, and to work out karmic debts and patterns.

It is believed that each individual has a primary soul family with whom they incarnate frequently. Members of a soul family  share a deep bond and to work together to support each other’s spiritual growth and evolution.

Members of the Mintaka soul family feel a deep sense of resonance with the energy or spiritual essence of Mintaka, and know that they have a particular purpose or mission related to this star system. They feel drawn to explore and connect with the culture, history, and mythology of Mintaka, as well as to connect with other individuals who share this soul group.


Mintakan Starseed Traits

Not sure yet if you are a Mintakan starseed? Here are a few Mintakan starseed traits to help you find out:

Positive outlook

Mintakan starseeds are known for their positive outlook on life. They have a natural ability to see the good in people and situations, and may strive to spread positivity and kindness wherever they go. They may also have a strong sense of empathy and compassion, and may devote themselves to serving others to a near self-sacrificing degree. They  believe in the power of love and seek to create a more harmonious and loving world.


Mintakan starseeds experience deep and sorrowful homesickness due to the permanent loss of their utopia-like home world. They often feel a sense of longing for a place that no longer exists, and may struggle to find a sense of belonging on Earth. This homesickness can manifest in a variety of ways, such as a sense of disconnection from the physical environment, a feeling of being out of place or not belonging, or a sense of loss and grief. Mintakans may benefit from seeking out others who share their experience, such as other starseeds or individuals who have undergone significant loss or transition. They may also find comfort in spiritual practices that help them connect with their sense of purpose and meaning, such as meditation, energy work, or prayer. By connecting with their inner wisdom and strength, Mintakans can find a sense of peace and fulfillment despite the challenges of homesickness.

Strong Opinions

Mintakan starseeds can be very black and white about their understanding of right and wrong. They often have a strong moral compass and are guided by a sense of justice and fairness. They may hold very strong opinions and judgments for actions which they interpret as wrong or negative, and may be outspoken about their beliefs. This often causes them to find solace in engaging within social justice movements and protests, as an act of progressively working towards the greater good. They may be motivated by a desire to make the world a better place and to alleviate suffering.

Drawn to water

Mintakan starseeds are often very drawn to water and sea creatures. They have a deep appreciation for the beauty and power of the ocean, and find solace and peace near bodies of water. They may be particularly drawn to island nations like Indonesia, Japan, and Hawaii, which offer a wealth of opportunities to explore marine life and oceanic environments. They enjoy swimming, surfing, or snorkeling, and may be avid scuba divers or marine biologists.

Struggle to adjust

A percentage of Mintakans may struggle to adjust to the loss of their home world and find themselves deeply resisting residency on Earth. This can manifest in the form of disliking Earth water, maybe even taking form as a fear or phobia. Mintakans are accustomed to a crystal clear water environment, and the heavy and hardly translucent Earth water can be an alarming diversion from what they are used to. This can lead to a sense of alienation and disconnection from the physical environment of Earth. It can also lead to a sense of homesickness and longing for their original home. For these Mintakans, it may be helpful to seek out support from others who understand their unique experience and can provide a sense of community and belonging. They may also benefit from practices that help them connect with the natural world, such as spending time near bodies of water, practicing meditation or energy work, or exploring other spiritual practices.

Need to control

Sometimes so bent on expressing love and positivity they may attempt to help and serve others where it is not desired. Those who are perhaps young in their spiritual journey are learning early lessons and an eager Mintakan may be a little pushy in having them understand the importance of love and harmony. This convolutes the potential for service, as lessons which a soul is not ready for will rarely ever be integrated. From an outside perspective this can be perceived as being controlling, even though there is always good intentions. 


As they have been on Earth for so long, some Mintankans have gained great wisdom, participating in nearly every major civilisation in Earth history; including Lemuria and Atlantis. While some have struggled to adjust and still learn lessons of personal expansion, others have integrated deep lessons from many lifetimes and take up roles of being teachers or leaders with a huge capacity for expressing love and light without corruption. 

Highly intuitive

They possess a deep understanding of others’ emotions and energy, often able to sense the underlying feelings and motivations behind words and actions.

They may also be drawn to environmental activism and may seek out opportunities to promote sustainability and ecological awareness.

Despite their deep desire for connection and community, Mintakan starseeds may struggle with feelings of isolation or loneliness.
