Careers for the Zodiac Signs - Midheaven Astrology

Hello everyone!

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!

  1. I don't see this correct at all. I have scorpio midheaven but all I want to do is working with computers.

    1. I think that could totally work! Understanding the deep workings and mechanisms, doing research and investigative work is totally possible when working with computers :)

  2. Found your blog on Tumblr while I was looking for character names oddly enough. It's a little scary how accurate some of this stuff is. For example, I'm a Capricorn and read your post about that. Many of the attributes describe me... although not all of them. Also my MC is Pisces. I've always been creative and I love writing especially in the fantasy genre. I would love to publish a book someday! I've never given astrology much thought but it is certainly interesting.
    Great blog!

    1. Thank you I am so glad I could introduce you to some deeper aspects of astrology ^.^
      Pisces midheaven is the perfect placement for a fantasy author and you definetly have the ambition and work ethic needed being a capricorn to succeed!!
      Good luck! xx

  3. My MC is Aries but it sounds NOTHING like what I want to be when I get older. I am kind of shy but that's probably bc my Sun is in Cancer and my moon is in Taurus. BUT I am working on becoming less shy bc I want to become something like Leo's MC. Its probably bc I am a rising Leo :/

  4. My MC is Sagittarius but I think I would be good for law. ~ Sag sun, Pisces moon, Aquarius rising

    1. Aquarius rising definitely gives you an eye for social justice!

  5. This post is very useful for us. Because we have a lot of
    tips and tricks from this post. Thank you for this amazing post share. I many
    tips about jobs in bd as well. If you want to know more about a career sites, please visit our website.


  6. I also don t think it s correct, I have a Sagittarius mc.. but I m all about the spotlight or positions of power and publicity. My dream is to be an actor but anything art related (music, dancing, architecture, design, writing, painting are my things, as long as I get recognized for them) and another option is the criminology field (so anything that induces you that adrenaline rush, the need to deduce and think and involve all of yourself, also psychoanalyse, or be in danger, so yeah totally not doing it to help others).
    But it might because of my other placements: gemini sun and moon with aquarius rising... also my dominant sign is aries and on the second place I have at equality gemini and aquarius... anyway nothing from the Sagittarius mc suits my personality (since I'm a very dominant person and I need a job not only that gives me recognition)... those are actually the type of jobs I m standing as far away from as I can since I find them totally distasteful ^.^

    1. I need a job that also gives me recognition*

      The ones that would suit me are leo mc or scorpio mc... also pisces and aquarius mc to a point but not so much

  7. leo midheaven, all my ex told me to be detective (Scorpio riser thing)
    All the job the boss gave me were always the difficult job with big responsibility, its said that Leo MC person looks super-reliable, so thats it, depressing job like always

  8. Why do astrologers recommend to pursue medical professions or social work for Pisces midheaven? Those professions seem quite Virgoan, which is the exact opposite of Piscean. The detail orientation and focus necessary for working in medicine seems so wrong for Pisces MC.
