The Profound Powerhouse of Passion

The word that describes your sexuality is formidable. You come at your partner with so much sexual energy and so much depth of feeling that even the most fleeting contact can be breathtaking. You take up an enormous amount of emotional space in relationships. You need lots of love, lots of attention and lots and lots of sex. For people with plenty of room in their hearts and sufficient physical stamina, your boundless capacity for devotion will be more than worth the effort. For more timid souls, you just may be too much to handle.

There are times when all this emotional power can get out of hand. Your awareness of relationships is so subjective and so much an extension of your own sexual needs that you sometimes lose track of both your partner and reality. Driven as you are by your powerful emotions, you have a bad habit of forgetting or minimizing the emotional needs of others. No one will deny that you are a wonderfully intense and committed Lover but you are often a kinder and more pleasant Lover when you are not taking it all so seriously.



Our examples of The Profound Powerhouse of Passion begin with the noted author of Vanity Fair, William Makepeace Thackeray (born July 18, 1811 adb.) At 25 Thackeray married a girl with whom he was deeply in love and the marriage prospered even as he struggled to make a living as a journalist. The young writer was very much the Victorian husband, however, and he dominated the relationship. When his young wife began suffering from what now would be diagnosed as post partum depression, Thackeray followed the common wisdom of his time and got her pregnant again. This course of action only deepened the poor woman’s depression and sped her decline into madness. In the face of her ever increasing self-destructive tendencies, Thackeray eventual had to have his beloved wife institutionalized. He remained her legal husband for the rest of his life, long after she had stopped recognizing him.

Another example from the Victorian era is the Canadian born dancer Maud Allan (born Aug. 27, 1873 wik.) Though she was never trained as a dancer, Allan became famous for her performance of the dance of "seven veils" from the notorious play, Salome, written by Oscar Wilde. Allan sexually charged shows occasionally caused her to run afoul of the law and on one occasion she sued a journalist who proclaimed that she was a lesbian. Allan lost the suit, partly because the allegations were true.·

·Other examples of this type are computer genius Steve Woznick (born Aug. 11, 1950 adb,) New Age guru Marianne Williamson (born July 8, 1952 adb,) British singer Aimee Anne Duffy (born June 23, 1984 wik) and actor Yul Brynner (born July 11, 1920 adb,) who proved long ago that a bald man could be sexy.
