Come clean

Good intentions can pave the way to a hellish situation when Mercury forms an opposition to Neptune on Aug. 18. Guilt over not wanting to hurt his feelings can lead you to create the impression that you're interested in him romantically when you aren't. You always want to avoid fostering false hopes when Neptune is powerful because the subsequent disappointment will be made even more crushing when he finds out that you never felt the same way that he did. It's much better to tell it like it is. It's bound to be painful — these sorts of conversations are supposed to be — but he will think better of you for being honest. As will you.

Come clean

It looks like you're turning a corner in your relationship and can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel. So why are you disappointed? It's hard being born under a sign where life doesn't come easy. Accustomed to trudging through the mire, the idea of getting what you want seems foreign. Your love life doesn't have to be a source of angst. It can even be an upper given a chance. Let yourself experience the heaven you don't know instead of the hell you do. At least it makes for a nice change of pace.
