This essay concerns the interaction between the emotions and sensory and cognitive phenomenal consciousness. In Section \textbf{2}, I argue that emotional phenomenology can be identified with the positively and negatively valenced information comprising a subject's memory stores, and that the valences modulate the subject's sensory and cognitive phenomenal awareness. I argue that a sufficient condition on the instantiation of emotional phenomenal properties is the subject's desires. In Section \textbf{3}, I defend the proposal from three arguments against non-reductive emotional phenomenology. In Section \textbf{4}, I argue that desire is able to modulate the cognitive intentional states at issue, by responding to Lewis' (1988, 1996) impossibility proofs concerning the identification of beliefs with desires in the setting of decision theory. The impossibility proof can be defused by availing of a norm of synchronic, rather than diachronic, conditionalization, where the latter enables the rational reassignment of preference rankings and utility values to one's probability distribution (cf. Moss, 2015: 191-192; Hedden, 2015: 8.2). Section \textbf{5} provides concluding remarks.
