One of the best ways to re-create ourselves is to spend time alone. Choices made in solitude show our true priorities. Activities in the 12th house of the birth chart can indicate how we can recharge our batteries.

ARIES has exceptionally quick intelligence, and therefore loves comedy. Ready to spontaneously jump into an adventure without forethought, it may enjoy the thrill of discovery, but also must understand the value of planning ahead.

TAURUS has inherited musical and artistic ability. Responsive to the world of geology and gemstones, it often collects rocks along with fine art.

GEMINI values physical mobility and mental stimulus by using knowledge as a path to wisdom. In a past life it would have learned the power of sacred mantras.

CANCER enjoys cooking, gardening, collecting antique family heirlooms and preparing the home for others to enjoy domestic felicity.

LEO likes to dance without a partner as much as with one. Recreational sports and theatre are great outlets for Leo’s enthusiasm, while providing applause to build self-esteem.

VIRGO actually likes to clean house because order and organization ground it. It’s happiest with its fuzzy friends; pets give unconditional love to analytical Virgo and align it with its soul. A closet workaholic, it may bring job assignments home.

LIBRA has such strong focus from past life on relationships that solitude is not its preference. Therefore it may cultivate private relationships behind the scenes of its public life.

SCORPIO enjoys sexual escapades, occult studies, murder mysteries and lucrative secret financial investments, perhaps even earning its living “under the table.”

SAGITTARIUS enjoys long-distance travel without companionship and is quite content to spend its time alone with God. Contemplating the broader meaning of the universe gratifies its desire to further its education beyond the boundaries of intellect.

CAPRICORN studies history and may collect ancient artifacts as a hobby. If politically involved, it would prefer to work behind the scenes to protect and preserve law and order.

AQUARIUS is the consummate computer nerd, valuing the vast world of internet access. Highly charitable and altruistic, it may work tirelessly behind the scenes to contribute to the betterment of humankind.

PISCES loves solitude because paradoxically, it feels so connected to the universe that way. Meditating on the Divine or the realm of angels and animals, it is gifted in mystically merging in universal love. Or it can waste its whole life drinking and doing drugs!
