Why do we fall in love? Why don’t we climb in love or sprint? Is love something below us that we fall into? And then why can it make us feel like we walk on clouds?
When planets fall they fall towards the sun; a central and most luminous source. In their orbits they are perpetually falling. We are perpetually falling too. We are pushed up by the floors that we stand on and the chairs that we sit upon.
Gravity is the mysterious force of attraction by which terrestrial bodies tend to fall towards the center of the earth. In the center of the Earth fire burns like a second Sun.
R. Buckmister Fuller called love “metaphysical gravity”.
The center of the earth in a psychological sense points to the center of your earth; an elusive Self that is born of nature and is nature. Is this where we fall towards when we fall in love? Are we put into an orbit that pivots around something bright and brilliant and born from within?
Light makes vision possible. Light born from love extends vision farther; both outwardly and inwardly. Out to the day and into the night, behind one’s eyes and back into the next day. Love can extend and deepen another’s worldview.
Valentine’s Day always falls in the far-out season of Aquarius.
Serious Saturn will join the Sun. Seriousness is like gravity, a force that anchors. Towards what does this force make you fall?
The star-player, Venus will be in her best gown; floating in Pisces near the divine planet of Neptune. Whatever your plans, add some ruffles and a string section.

Fabulous, Tess. “Is this where we fall when we fall in love?” Original thinking analogy that is succinct, clear and right on the mark!
