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.

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!
