The lucky number 7 sets us up for a bit of a wild ride today, and of course we’re referring to today’s date: January 7, 2023.
Three zodiac signs have approximate horoscopes on this day because they work with a troublesome conjunction in astrology: the Sun conjunct Mercury.
There must be more to do real damage, but enough to put us on the path to miscommunication and exaggerated opinions. We look to none other than Sun conjunct Mercury for victory.
It’s almost as if the universe wants to keep us humble, because maybe we dare to get ahead of ourselves; January is so optimistic; we have a lot of resolutions and goals to achieve and some of us try to achieve them all in the first week.
Absurd, yes, but that’s the human mind; sometimes we get ahead. We have to enjoy being stopped halfway, and that’s “a bit” of what we’re going to experience today.
The most obvious problem here is that we are the ones who are going to stop our progress because we cannot be silent.
The Sun in conjunction with Mercury can help us come up with some of the greatest ideas we’ve ever had, but it can also bring out our impulsive side, which means we can share our ideas too soon; we could therefore pass for amateurs.
And that’s the way it’s going to be on that day; we’ll have big intentions, and by trying to get our points across, we might end up looking like megalomaniacs on a mission. Sun conjunct Mercury means too fast, too strong, too insistent, too “me, me, me!” Remember, we are in Mercury retrograde right now, as if you could forget!
The three zodiac signs with approximate horoscopes on January 7, 2023:
(May 21 – June 20)
Because you are brimming with confidence on this day, you feel like you could more than likely influence those around you just because you believe in yourself, and that is a truly fantastic thing and more than likely true.
However, during the Sun’s conjunction with Mercury, you may feel like you’re “too much”. What you believe to be your influential approach feels more like coercion during this transit, and you may end up doing more harm than good, unfortunately.
In truth, the only thing bothering you today is your self-confidence, which may sound strange, but it’s the truth; You are louder than you are convincing.
You think you are charming the masses when you are only imposing your ideas on them. Timing is key here. You must check in with your pace and discretion.
(July 23 – August 22)
You’re known for stirring up the crowd with your optimism and enthusiasm, and during the Sun’s conjunction with Mercury, you’ll likely find yourself doing something similar that day. You’ve always been good at getting along with people, but you might bite off more than you can chew during difficult transits.
This means that because you say something today, you automatically think everyone is listening, agreeing, and ready to act on your behalf. You don’t even bother to consider that people are still thinking about it; Also, you have no patience for latecomers.
When you recognize that the people you’ve just tried to convince aren’t as enthusiastic as you are, you’ll be discouraged, but not half as discouraged as you’ll feel when you realize that very few actually listened to what you have told me. Today brings you false hopes and too much faith in your neighbour.

What you’ll be fighting today, Sagittarius, are those old voices in your head; you know, the ones who tell you nobody cares what you say. You have an idea and would need the support of the person you want to share this idea with.
Your idea is fantastic, and if all goes well, you will be received with open arms and tons of compliments. However, Sun conjunct Mercury makes you doubt yourself to the point where you’re almost certain your idea will be rejected, and you haven’t told anyone yet!
You are a major creative force, but you have twice the inhibition and reluctance for every ounce of talent. You may not feel this way every day, but you won’t get far during the Sun’s conjunction with Mercury because you keep stopping before you’re even close to your goal.
