Love Horoscope For Monday, January 4, 2021

For today's love horoscope by zodiac sign, resident astrologer, and YourTango's Senior Editor, Aria Gmitter shares how current astrological events affect you on Monday, January 4.

Even the universe can be judgemental 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.

If gossip had a face, it would be the Moon in Virgo speaking to work-minded Mercury in Capricorn.

Together they Venus to stop playing and get serious before entering Capricorn, which is soon.

If you've been wanting to take your own love life more seriously, Venus might be part of the reason why.

She's tired of these squares to Neptune in dreamy Pisces, and there have been many while she's enjoyed her Sagittarius transit.

But Monday, she's cornered between an earthy Moon in Virgo and a Mercury in Capricorn who both want her to get real.

Their accountability provides a dose of reality on Monday, and for zodiac signs who have been playing with hearts, they too may find it harder to keep up the facade.

There's little room for fanfare or playing the field when Venus gets cornered, and soon she will have to make some changes.

For singles, this may a signal to pay closer attention to work, because the love of it will happen next week when Venus changes signs.

It's not too bad, really! Work could be a wonderful escape from dating (or thinking about the lack of opportunities to meet new people) during the pandemic peak.
