innocence: the state, quality, or virtue of being innocent, as:

  1. Freedom from sin, moral wrong, or guilt through lack of knowledge of evil.
  2. Guiltlessness of a specific legal crime or offense.
  3. Freedom from guile, cunning, or deceit; simplicity or artlessness.
  4. Lack of worldliness or sophistication; naiveté.
  5. Lack of knowledge or understanding; ignorance.

Innocence is the ignorance of human nature. Fighting human nature is exhausting. I am exhausted. My nature is to desire the forbidden – that which is not given to me, that which I do not have, that which tempts my greedy self that craves power and knowledge and pleasures of the body – the player, the coach, the grasshopper, the married man, the boss, the president. Perhaps I have finally been stripped of my innocence, I’ve seen too much, that I am willing to eschew my morals and ethics to surrender to guaranteed calamity. Maybe. Or maybe the greatest growth comes from the greatest challenges. I must resist the Scorpio.

Gemini and Scorpio…

Gemini is of all twelve signs in the zodiac, the hardest sign for Scorpio to understand. Scorpio loves a challenge though, and Gemini is very sexy to Scorpio. Ruled by Mercury, Gemini has beauty, brains and tons of sex appeal. Scorpio is a highly intuitive water sign. With Gemini though, just when Scorpio thinks they have uncovered Gemini’s last secret, her or she will uncover another surprise. Secrets withheld will drive Scorpio to a boiling point. There is potential here as long as both share a love of drama, sporadic separations and dramatic reunions. To make this one work, Scorpio should provide Gemini lots of freedom and Gemini should speak from the heart to Scorpio. Sex can be horrible or amazing. This union is best for a one-night stand. Both signs will need to make many adjustments and compromises if a long-term relationship is desired. A one-night stand could, however, lead to resentment or deception or disaster.
