Some religious traditions preach the doctrine that desire is a major obstacle to enlightenment. To escape from the predicament of your suffering, they insist, you must overcome all of your yearning. But Tantric scholar Daniel Odier believes this dogma is a delusion. In his book Desire: The Tantric Path to Awakening, he says desire should be at the heart of spiritual practice. Not all longings are equally sacred, of course: Fantasies about winning the lottery or seeing an adversary punished are not on a par with wanting to expand your capacity to bestow blessings and give love. In 2006, Taurus, consider the possibility that Odier is right. Try out the hypothesis that the most spiritual thing you can do is cultivate high-minded yearnings.

We see the same old shows on TV. We pass the same old shops on our streets. We think to ourselves, I know this world. I know what it contains - and what it has to offer me. We think there's very little that we haven't already encountered or experienced. We are wrong to feel this way. You really don't know the half of what's in store for you this year. Your expectations are based on experiences that relate to the past, not the future. Allow a new story to unfold and don't worry, you are going to find that it has a very pleasing outcome.

Be careful that people whom you have to deal with at this time represent themselves truthfully. Others will probably try to deceive you and if they do, the results could be even more discouraging. Don't let your desire to have things your way cloud your ability to see what is really happening, especially with people. At the same time don't become involved in any devious action yourself. You are not likely to be especially lucky at such schemes, and you may not want to face the consequences in the future. During this time you may also have to face the unpleasant consequences of past actions that you would rather avoid. You will be greatly tempted to turn your back and pretend that they didn't happen. You may even be tempted to take refuge in drugs or alcohol, but this is not the proper course.

Ascendant in Gemini

With your Ascendant in Gemini you have a talent for variety in personal relationships, and you can enjoy many different kinds of lovers. A stick-in-the-mud partner who liked the same thing every time would be very boring.

Since you are an inventive lover, you need a very sensitive partner who can respond to your delicate touch and lively imagination. In fact, imagination is the keyword to your style.

Sun in Taurus

You are a meat-and-potatoes person when it comes to loving, possessing both consistency and endurance.

You are very good-hearted and generous with your lover and will go to any length to lavish favors on your partner. In return, you expect great loyalty and consistency more than physical generosity, although you do prefer a physically demonstrative partner.

You would do well to choose a lover who is emotionally adaptable, for you are not one to give in very much.

The ideal partner for you would be someone who enjoys sexual variety, someone who can introduce you to new and exciting forms of lovemaking.

Unlike some others, you seldom fall into the trap of jealousy, for you value your lover's feelings about you more than technical chastity or faithfulness. For this reason, you are one of the most easy-going partners a person could have.

Sun in the Twelfth House

You have a strong sense of privacy and individuality. You disclose your inner feelings only in the most intimate circumstances and only to those whom you feel are your closest friends. Such openness is, in fact, the highest honor and token of love that you can bestow upon a friend or lover.

Because of your natural reticence, you don't actively seek new relationships, but rather tend to wait for others to seek you out.

Others may see your personal life as quite mysterious, attracting speculation about behind- closed-doors affairs. They will seldom be able to assess your private life accurately, but the very mystery will make you seem more attractive and desirable.

Moon in Aquarius

Although your temperament is fairly even, there is potential for unlimited variety in your responses to a lover. In every situation you are truly creative and responsive, an equal partner in the emotional and sexual inventiveness of the relationship.

You prefer a partner who provides a challenge rather than one who presents a ready- made framework for an affair.

A lover who is verbally clever would be ideal for you. You will be happiest in a relationship that has plenty of time to develop. In affairs of the heart, time is on your side.

Moon in the Tenth House

Maintaining status in your social affairs is central to your lifestyle, and your reputation as a lover is important to you.

You are often able to turn a love relationship to your advantage in other areas, so that you enjoy and profit from the connection. Just make sure that love is always the primary goal of the relationship.

External events may play a large role in shaping your love life, in the form of unavoidable separations from a desired partner or a new relationship springing up suddenly and unexpectedly. There is little you can do to prevent this, so just relax and enjoy what fate provides.

In general you prefer a dynamic and future-oriented partner whose energies kindle your own.

Venus in Gemini

You enjoy delicacy and finesse in love, and you treasure the touch of an experienced and thoughtful lover. The softer and more ethereal the physical quality of love, the more you respond to it.

However, you also appreciate being told how much you are loved. Not everyone can express loving feelings so fluently, however, so do not feel rejected if your lover is not verbally affectionate.

Love at its best is a happy, sometimes complicated game of constantly changing stimuli, but underlying it is a much simpler emotional base of mutual friendship and companionship.

Venus in the Twelfth House

At times you may find it difficult to decide exactly what you want out of a relationship, or you may find out what you would really have enjoyed only after the affair is over.

For this reason, it is a good idea to prolong your courtship in order to find out what each partner wants and expects before making a commitment.

You appreciate a lover who doesn't discuss your personal life with others; in fact, you are quite attracted to the idea of carrying on an affair in secret.

Mars in Aries

Although you may not be particularly forward in your social manner, when it comes to physical affection you are usually the initiator.

You are spontaneous and eager, and you like to participate actively in lovemaking. But in your eagerness, take care not to get carried away and leave your lover emotionally behind in an earlier stage of lovemaking. The lessons you must learn are those of restraint and staying power.

Do not let your impulsiveness lead you to make premature commitments or act rashly from either love or anger.

Mars in the Eleventh House

You expend extra energy in any close personal relationship even if it is not sexual, for you place a high value on loyalty and friendship, both in yourself and in others.

For this reason you prefer a long-lasting affair that has time to develop, rather than newer and less firm attachments.

On a more mundane level, because of your desire for excellence in a relationship, you gravitate toward partners who have a good reputation in such matters. As long as you remember that internal qualities are paramount, this path will be continually rewarding, but if you concentrate on external qualities, you may be just a social climber or trend follower.

In lovemaking itself, you strive for excellence and make every effort to create a graceful aesthetic experience that has substance as well as form.
