I recently suggested some rather ironic careers for the zodiac signs on tumblr, like homeless person or indiana jones but I figured that since most of my readers are in their teens and 20s, trying to figure out what to do with their life, a more serious blogpost on picking a career with astrology might be a good idea.
So, this is your midheaven sign!!
What is the Midheaven?
The MC (short for medium coeli, meaning midheaven) is the point in the sky, that, at the place and time of your birth, was directly above you. Like a north star, this point in your horoscope shows you the direction your life is going in. The MC is the cusp of the 10th house in the horoscope, the house of career.
Your MC sign will tell you about your reputation, public image, what you will get credit and fame for in your life, where your place in the social hierachy is. It's known as "the point of fame and fortune".
The MC does not necessarily tell you about your passions, talents and interests - that would require a more in-depth analysis of your personal birth chart.
It does, however, tell you about what you will earn respect and recognition for most naturally and what will become more and more important throughout your life so these career suggestions might give you an idea to how you can combine these fortunes with your personal interests.
How do I calculate my Midheaven Sign?
Use this calculator, put in your birthday and exact (!!!) time of birth and look at what it says for your MC sign at the very bottom. That's it!
