SHARE Horoscope for Monday, Jan. 4, 2021

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping and important decisions after 3 p.m. Chicago time (from 1 to 10 p.m. PST). After that, the moon moves from Virgo into Libra.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Heads up! This is a tricky day because although you are persuasive when talking to bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs, you might also be so focused on one thing that you sound like a stuck record. You might be obsessed because you want to get to the bottom of something. Oy!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You are in the right frame of mind to study and investigate anything today because there is no length you will not go to, in order to find the answers that you’re looking for. Meanwhile, in discussions about politics, religion and racial issues, you will be convincing!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You have an investigative mind today, which is why you want to get to the bottom of issues regarding taxes, debt, shared property, inheritances and anything that you own jointly with someone else. “Just the facts, ma’am.”

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Tread carefully today. There’s a strong likelihood that you will attract someone to you who is pushy to the extent of being intimidating. (“Hi Darth.”) This person might insist that you agree with their point of view, and they will be persuasive! (Possibly you are the persuasive one?)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your mind is busy and intense, which makes it a good day to cover many areas at work. You’re focused on getting things done as well as improving your health and perhaps dealing with a pet — all in one breath! Go gently so that you do not intimidate coworkers.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You will be effective if teaching children and young minds today because you are so convincing. However, you might belabor a point too much because you are obsessed about something. (What interests you might not necessarily fascinate someone else.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Family discussions or interactions taking place at home will be intense because people want to get to the bottom of something. You want the facts. Because you want to persuade others to agree with you, you will be very persuasive! Hey, do not be deaf to the input of others.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today you have the mind of a sleuth, which is not surprising because Scorpios proliferate the police force and all elements of security and intelligence agencies. You’re very convincing today.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

When it comes to financial matters today, you have a one-track mind. There are certain results that you intend to achieve and you won’t let up until you have succeeded. Fortunately, Venus in your sign will soften your intense declarations to others. (That’s something.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today Mercury is in your sign lined up with Pluto, which gives you a busy, intense frame of mind. This also lends a very intense, penetrating quality to your mind, which is why you want to get to the bottom of every question. “Who goes there? What’s the password?”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a fantastic day because you will be successful in any kind of research. You will be relentless searching for answers and solutions to old problems because you will be determined to get to the bottom of something. Since motivation is everything, you will succeed!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might attract someone to you today who is a bit overbearing or persuasive. (“Hey, relax. I get it.”) Alternatively, you might be this overbearing, persuasive individual when talking to others? Today’s celestial influence can work both ways.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Musician Michael Stipe (1960) shares your birthday. You are hard-working, goal-oriented and ambitious to achieve your goals. You are straightforward, honest and charming. Because you are entering a new cycle this year, it means it’s time to define some goals to determine what you want for yourself in the next few years. Be confident and physically energetic about going after what you want. Just do it!
