Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares every zodiac sign's daily horoscope for January 4.
Our mood may be a bit skewed today as the moon remains in change-making Aquarius for the day. It could be difficult to stay grounded or focused as many things feel chaotic or uncertain. These unsettling feelings intensify by the late morning when the moon and unstable Uranus in Taurus bump heads. The best way to handle this cosmic pair is by welcoming change instead of resisting it.
Come the afternoon, the atmosphere may feel heavy as the moon teams up with serious Saturn in Aquarius. Although it won’t be possible to shrug off our responsibilities or avoid the cold, hard truth, this planetary combination can lend us the steely resolve needed to see a problem through.
Since Aquarius is also a community-focused sign, today encourages us to use the power of togetherness to help ourselves and each other. With Mars in altruistic Sagittarius also a key player for the latter half of the day, we’re encouraged to act on behalf of the greater good. At the same time, Mars in Sagittarius, alongside the Aquarius moon, also encourages us stand by our principles.
