Embracing Solitude

Embracing Solitude
Being alone and savoring the delights of tranquility comes more easily to some people than others. The naturally go-it-alone astrological signs have a head start, but ultimately everyone is capable of taking alone time and reaping the benefits.

The real joy of solitude is learning to relate to oneself. Once that happens, the best emotional relationships develop between two people who are comfortable in their own skin. After all, if you can't stand being with yourself, why should someone else?

Virgo is self-sufficient by temperament; in fact, they need to watch their tendency to separate themselves too much. They should remain wary of filling in their alone time with working or worrying too much.

Dreamy Pisces is probably happier in their dream world than anywhere else, so being left to their own devices is certainly no hardship for them.

The least happy to be left alone is Leo, who really needs the mirror of another person to feel validated. Their challenge is to be comfortable within and know they're okay just being themselves.

Likewise, Libra is happier in a relationship since having a partner makes them feel whole. They just need to make sure they find their inner other half before they settle down with someone else.

Though a totally different animal than Libra, Scorpio also yearns for that deep inner connection with a close partner. They must learn to love being alone before they can truly become centered.

Friendly Aquarius and chatty Gemini prefer to be surrounded by a crowd, but when nobody else is around, they always have their own thoughts to keep them company. That said, they need to be careful that their monkey-mind chatter doesn't interfere with centering their inner self.

Cancer adores family and has a tribal mentality, so they prefer to do their meditation and have their serenity time within a group. But since they are a Water sign, they can (with practice) connect to their inner ocean.

Flyaway Sagittarius and Aries have more problems as hyperactive Fire signs. They have to turn their solitude into a game -- a time of inner adventure rather than outer action.

As solidly sensible Earth signs, Capricorn and Taurus don't quite see the point in inner contemplation. They'd much rather be indulging or achieving than sitting still. But once they learn how to access life inside their hearts, they'll mellow into richer people.
