Love horoscopes: Aug. 18 – Aug. 24
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.
