Horoscopes for January 4

Astrologer Aria Gmitter of Your Tango, gives her love forecast, writing: “Even the universe can be judgmental when it comes to flirty love, and Venus proves that no one is immune from the occasional side-eye. Even though Venus is happiest when free in Sagittarius, there are things she’s meant to do and maybe here is not where it’s going to happen, at least not for lasting love.”

Astrologer Patrick Arundell writes: “The Moon in Virgo angles towards luscious Venus in freedom-loving Sagittarius which can incline us to gloss over details and be more spontaneous. There could be some friction involved though as someone could criticize us for being too lackadaisical.”

Astrologer Nadia Gilchrist of Ruby Slipper Astrology explores the implications of Mercury conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. Gilchrist writes: “Conscious information (Mercury) unites with buried truths (Pluto). This can be the realization that opens your eyes to a certain darkness or, there can be obsessive fixation on a subject that triggers compulsive words- something has to be said, no matter who objects.”
