Midheaven Signs as your Internet Persona - How do you come across on social media?

I think it was Alyssa Sharpe who first came up with the theory that your midheaven sign is your internet persona, at least she is the first person I heard mentioning this.
I thought this was such a clever way to convert this ancient concept into a modern context!
The midheaven describes who we want to be and what image we portray publically.
This might be (and usually is) completely unconscious, it has nothing to do with conscious manipulation and the carving out of a public persona. It's not acting, it's just a role we automatically slip into when being in the public eye, when displaying ourselves on the worldy or virtual stages.



Your Midheaven Sign

This is not about your sun sign / "zodiac sign", this is specifically about the midheaven sign!
Although your zodiac sign also plays into the way you come across online, its not the thing people first notice about you on the internet!

If you don't know your Midheaven sign, you can calculate it with the astrological atlas.
Its crucial for your birth time to be right, because the time is what determines the midheaven, not the date!!!
When you get your results, in the last line it will say "MC in" and the sign next to it is your Midheaven sign!! (MC is short for medium coeli, meaning middle of the sky)


Aries: social media is the ultimate way for them to express themselves and their opinions. They tend to make everything about themselves, thinking everyone cares about what they have to say and share. Will pick up fights about their fandom or opinions frequently. The internet is probably the place that makes them most outgoing and confident.

Taurus: laughs about old memes long after they're out of trend, because they're too slow to keep up with the extremely quick and short-lived trends of social media. They just want to lean back and enjoy some good old planking videos, for gods sake. Theyre really practical about social media, they dont have the need to brag a lot or to pretend to be cool, they just want to enjoy themselves.

Gemini: over-sharing, lots of liking and commenting and tagging. They hate feeling like they miss something, they want to seem super informed and up-to-date with the cool kid trends. What are the neweste memes? Do people still say groovy and funky?? Ask a gemini midheaven. Theyre the coolest people on the internet.

Cancer: their social media consists of whining about first world problems and song lyrics or quotes that allude to something and them expecting others to know what they mean. Its almost as if their social media accounts are they angsyt teenage diaries for their thoughts and feelings to be expressed.

Leo: social media is the ultimate stage for a leo midheaven, they share lots of selfies and personal info nobody asked for and they're unnecessarily artsy. Harry Styles has a leo midheaven and his instagram account is a black and white picture gallery of his ~artsy~ lifestyle... and his twitter bio says "raconteur" (which is a sort of storyteller) and his profile picture is of himholding up a camera. Come on, Harry!! Social media is not artwork, stop taking it so seriously!



Virgo: afraid of showing flaws! Perfectionists. They'd rather share too little than regret sharing something, usually quite private as well. Virgo midheavens never want to have anything embarrasing about them online so they think twice before posting something.

Libra: put lots of effort into appearing super cute and super pretty online, and then act all humble "im not that special, this picture is nothing, really, i just took it randomly... actually i didnt notice the camera going of??". They will be the nicest most sweet people trying not to get into any fights, being super politically correct, because they dont want to offend anyone or be "problematic" (strange new term).

Scorpio: hates giving out personal information, likes using profile pictures that is not them. But if they do post something, you can be sure it's super deep or a link to a weird documentary. They keep it real, post something that has meaning, cut the bullshit. The internet is not a stage for their ego, its a stage for what they stand for.

Sagittarius: passionately posts about things nobody else cares about, makes a big deal about everything and blows everything out of proportion!!!!! lots of exclamation marks!!! lots of "omg". They will act as if everything is so sensational, inspirational and motivational. Everything is "hilarious" even though theyre actually staring at the screen with a blank face.

Capricorn: wants to appear professional, their tumblr is a portfolio, their twitter is actual life updates, facebook is a résumé. They will probably actually use the right grammar and spelling on their social media?? weird. Portraying themselves like that on the internet is their source of respect, their way to find a place where they are taken seriously.

Aquarius: social justice fighters online, even if they don't care as much IRL, pretend to dislike things because they're too mainstream, online hipsters. They will hop on any brand new band wagon but jump right off when it gets too crowded. They take lots of pride in being the first one to share a youtube video that later goes viral.

Pisces: mostly communicates through emojis, the rest is telepathy. Very vague posts, highly edited pictures. What they portray online is hazy & blurry and doesn't really say anything about what the person is like or looks like. They might just not have social media at all. Celebrity example #1 for this is Cher, her tweets are sensational but they usually dont make sense

Pisces Midheavens online are a train wreck

Tell me about your social media habits; I'd love to know how true this is for you!!!

  9. I think that the planets and aspects in/to the midheaven have a huge effect. I have a double moon and midheaven in cancer, but in trine with Scorpio Jupiter and Pisces Saturn. I feel that these planets kind of stop me from portraying myself as the typical whiny Cancer native. I've noticed, though, that the content I post is often very Cancer-related: social justice issues (social responsibility -moon&saturn), art (cancer moon) or just stuff that "feeds the soul", so to speak (moon-jupiter).

  12. MC in Taurus, and it doesn't really sound like me. I don't like feeling left out of the new trends but I don't necessarily brag about much either. I like my privacy but I really do want to know what's the new stuff!

  13. I mostly identify as Scorpio Mid-heavean. I don't want to be seen.
    I mostly don't like taking pictures even in real life
