There’s a love of being alone suggested by this choice, a dream of isolation as a kind of bliss, like that we remember or imagine of a childhood in a safe and cosy dwelling. This playful dream is important to you, but you are aware that there is something unreal about this fairytale house in a clearing in a wood, with a fire in the grate, all so comfortable and secure.  You may harbour at times the thought of escape to such a sweet cottage or cabin: there is an aspect of your personality that seeks escape from the harsher realities and discomforts of everyday life.  But you know it is at best a temporary retreat. There’s a path to the gate through the surrounding hedge, and from it another path to elsewhere in the world.  You may be happy in solitude, but you need the company of others; and there are things that must be done in the world at large.
