Knock, knock! It’s time to pay attention to your midheaven sign!
Astrology practitioners and enthusiasts harp on and on about rising signs becoming a huge factor in how we present ourselves to the world and how people perceive us. While this is completely true, there’s another placement in your natal chart that significantly influences your public persona and may improve your career path.
And that’s the sign where your Midheaven sits.
What is the Midheaven Sign?
The Midheaven is one of the four major angles in a birth chart, usually found at the apex of the natal chart wheel and pointing Southward. If you have your natal chart saved (of course you do!), you’ll see a symbol that says “MC” which stands for “Medium Coeli” – a fancy way of saying Midheaven sign, but it literally just translates to “middle of the sky.”
Most of the time, the Midheaven sign sits right at the cusp of the 10th house, and if you’re a total astrology nerd (like all hot people), you’ll know that the 10th house represents the house of social status. It’s about your social standing in group settings, the community, and your career.
The big MC is found at the highest point of your chart. It represents your career path, ambitions, aspirations, life path, and the public’s perception of who you are. While a lot of people confuse the Midheaven with one’s ascendant or rising sign, the Midheaven actually rules your persona on a more expanded or larger scale.
“Okay, so, what does my Midheaven say about me?”
