Love may very well be the most misused and abused word in the English language. Most of the Romance languages have two or three words that describe different kinds of love.
Sanskrit has 96 words for love. Many languages have words that have no English translation – other than love.
The best definition I’ve seen comes from Paulo Coelho in his novel The Zahir: A Novel of Obsession: Love is an untamed force. When we try to control it, it destroys us. When we try to imprison it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused.
That’s a pretty full definition – but I’d add a few more couplets: When we allow it, it expands us. When we allow ourselves to feel it, it dissolves us. When we swim in its river, it delivers us to the shores of bliss.

I am contracted with Love in both my Sun in Pisces in the 8th house and Pluto In Leo in the the first house . It’s difficult to write about because most of the time it defies words. It’s like the driving force I have with all things is to open my heart to them… this includes people, animals, inanimate objects (yes, I talk to my shoes… but not out loud). The phrase “feeling one with everything” points to it. It’s kind of like a radical acceptance, a great expansion… a big fat YES to everything. Which would be great if everyone followed the Love principle and lived authentic lives in integrity. But the moment fear causes any type of contraction, dishonesty or withdrawal, it used to present to me like a mighty betrayal. As a young child, the whole world felt unsafe because I could tell when Love was impeded by fear and although I didn’t understand it in those terms, it felt dangerous. It took many years of work to get clear that it’s not personal and that I can still be a YES to it all. I can see when people are acting out of fear and create an appropriate distance so I can still be in Love with them, just not necessarily interact with them. And when I do that, I can feel the compassion for their fear, and for my own.
