The Midheaven (Medium Coeli or MC) is one of the most important angles in our natal chart beside the Ascendant. It is literally translated as “the middle of the sky”.
This point in our chart indicates our status and career, our reputation, our goals and aspirations in life. It describes our career path, but also our life path. It is one side of an axis which is always aligned with the north and the south.
On the other side of this axis is Imum Coeli or IC, which means “the bottom of the sky”. The other equally important axis of the natal chart is the one made of the Ascendant and the Descendant.
While the Midheaven describes our public personality and the way we behave publically, the IC describes our private behavior, one which we have when we are alone or in the presence of the people we consider very close, like close family members and friends. The IC describes our private personality.
The IC indicates how we feel and behave when there’s no one around us. The sign on the IC and the fourth house describes our behavior in the presence of our family members and close friends, which are people who know us best.
They represent our attitude and feelings when we are spending time at home, in our bed, our bathroom, sitting at our table, watching television, reading a book we don’t want to talk anyone about, thinking about someone who no one knows about, etc.
This house and the sign on its cusp also symbolize our family and people who live with us. It is the most private area of our lives and not everyone can enter it freely.
The Midheaven on the other side reveals our public personality and our image of how we desire to be perceived by the public. The sign placed on your Midheaven describes how you are perceived by the people you work with, the people who see you on stage performing, or giving a speech, or when they hear you speak, as well as how well you organize other people.
This sign indicates how you want to be perceived by others and usually describes the areas you admire and respect and want to be a part of.
The Midheaven point reveals not only your professional and career goals, but it also describes your personal and spiritual goals. Most people are delighted by the qualities of the sign which is on their Midheaven.
That sign describes our life path, our career path and vocation, but also the reputation we will be seeking and receiving in life. In most cases, it indicates the profession we will most likely choose to make a living. This sign also indicates the person’s reactions in stressful situations.
Another thing about the MC/IC axis is that it describes our parents and our relationship with them. That is also why it is a very important spot in our natal chart. Usually, the Midheaven represents our mother, and the IC represents our father, but it can also be reversed in some people’s charts.
The MC and the IC, especially the IC, are related to our childhood, our growing up, and the process of our upbringing. They are related to the authority figures which influenced our development and understanding of good and bad and right and wrong.
These figures were our parents and grandparents, our teachers, for some our priests, for others they were also the actual community leaders, or other adults who influenced us during that time. Their influence, among other circumstances, shaped our personality.
The Midheaven is a spot which reveals our visible accomplishments, and it also rules our public appearance. It represents the highest point above the horizon at the time of our birth, as well as the highest point in our natal chart.
To determine all the angles and house cusps of the natal chart, and the Midheaven among them, we need to have the exact time, day, and place of the person’s birth.
Another important thing to note is that the MC and the IC are not separate. They represent our personality both the public and the private one. Both these personalities are genuine and represent who you truly are.
