A Lord Byron quote about writing letters is that it is a device that affords companionship in solitude.  Now we can text.

But turning off the smart phone and taking a walk alone is a very pleasant form of early morning solitude.  The birds sing and the squirrels pose hopefully on the fence posts, wondering if I have walnuts today.

Oh I love it so much! – but there is a point where it suddenly sours and I know I am hiding and it is time to get out there again.

i had an epiphany the other day: my chart is full of oppositions, thus my avoidance of people is avoidance of my projections – my shadow. Yikes. This is a cliche until it suddenly it’s looking you right in the eyes. Boy have I projected some nasty stuff on some innocent bystanders!  O to see people crystal clear exactly as the are!

I embrace isolation. I’m actually a thinker, an observer, and introverted, but when I’m out, everyone assumes I’m an extrovert. I’m chatty and can be talkative, bright and can engage in conversation with almost anyone.

So I guess if it’s balanced, it generally serves one well.

I relate to the above post. I am an extrovert at work, and enjoy working with the public. My “work” houses are in fire signs. Outside of work, I enjoy a lot of solitude. I need space to delve, think, and reflect. My “fun” houses are in water signs.

Yeap, I embrace solitude as my desirable companion that accompanies me on every step of a piece of artwork I conceive when I am my innermost self.

There has to be balance, however.

I enjoy mine as long as I have the TV going on in the background or the phone in my hand (usually both—I have Gemini). Silence wigs me out.

Both, although not 50-50 proportion.

I’m used to living alone, and I think I could no longer share house with someone. I need my alone time to rest my brain and do things at my own pace (very slow!). I’m can’t handle too much stimulation.

But I don’t work alone, and aside from normal daily social interactions (shop people etc.) I also see friends (I don’t have very many) every once in a while. And I do enjoy seeing them.

However, I could not live completely alone & isolated – I think it’s depressing & leads to alienation. Like several mentionned above, a question of balance…

I agree with Not My Circus, total silence – soetimes OK, but not for very long!

I totally enjoy solitude, it’s the way I can recharge my batteries… But I can also enjoy going out and socializing, not every day & night though…

I enjoy it, it is my time to reflect, think and process my information.

Alone time is a must for me, otherwise I get depleted emotionally and energetically really fast. It’s no surprise though looking at my natal chart. Saturn forms an aspect with my Moon, Venus and Mars. Plus all my air houses are in water signs.
