Understanding the Midheaven is something beyond common horoscope readings most of people are used to.
Let us learn something more about these terms and astrological elements. The Midheaven and elements related to it are rarely commonly discussed.
They are an essential part of in depth astrological interpretation of one’s birth chart, so let us find out what might they show.
Understanding the Midheaven greatly helps in understanding your professional goals, career progress and all related to it.
Midheaven – Medium Coeli Meaning
What is the Midheaven? The Midheaven or Medium Coeli (marked as MC in a natal chart) represents the highest point on the ecliptic. It is found on the top of the Tenth astrological field, which we will talk about later on.
The Midheaven is essential element for understanding one’s idea of professional and career success, their attitude towards it, their attitude towards authorities and the image they leave in the public.
Medium Coeli is what you are, in short. It represents what you have always dreamed to be and determines basic steps of your progress. Medium Coeli shapes up your ideas of success, publicity, work and ideal career. It has a lot to do with the first authorities in your life, which are your parents.
Medium Coeli represents your desires, but also their expectations and ideas they have passed on to you.
The way you are going to accept and process those partially and, in many cases, unintentionally imposed ideas about the ideal occupation, career and success, is also shaped up by your Midheaven.
This is why some people eagerly follow their parents’ steps and find themselves comfortable in succeeding family business and why others choose completely different paths.
Medium Coeli represents success, the maximum of our potentials. It represents the realization of our personality as it is seen in our First house. However, Medium Coeli is not that about the intimate aspects of one’s personality, but about how this personality is present in the public.
The Midheaven is about how people see us, especially in terms of professional achievements.
The Midheaven symbolizes what we might be, if we use all of our capacities, talents and skills given to the fullest. It could also point out the flaws in our attitude and behavior related to success. Medium Coeli defines one’s general idea of success.
It answers to why we want to achieve exactly those particular things. It also tells about what motivates us and where we find our inspiration in.
While Immum Coeli or the Lower Midheaven represents who we are in privacy and what are our private desires and needs, the Midheaven represents us as public personas. It does not mean it necessarily makes you globally famous (for some people, it means so, though), but it has to do with your social status, professional aspirations and generally your place in the world.
It is about your public image, seen from both sides; yours and the people around you. Medium Coeli defines the way you would like people to see you, but it could also make people talk about you for some other reason.
For example, someone could be present in the public as a performer, but people would praise him or her for their charity work, not that much for their performing skills. It could be a bad publicity, as well.
The Midheaven represents your idols and people you admire. It tells about your heroes, your expectations of yourself and the expectations others have from you. Medium Coeli is about the reputation, for the greatest part.
It is definitely about fame and glory, acknowledgment of someone’s professional achievements, his or her mark on the world in general.
Therefore, it is also about notoriety, bad reputation, shame and scandals.
Tenth House and Medium Coeli
Medium Coeli is bound to the Tenth house, representing its cusp, its highest peak. The Tenth house is of major importance in interpreting one’s natal chart, because it is the house of success, career and professional and social status.
The nature of the Tenth house is the same as that of Medium Coeli, which is the maximum of it.
It is also important to see what planets are there. Aspects they create are of crucial importance, as well.
The Tenth house tells about your accomplishments on professional plan, in the first place. It defines your career path and tells about capacities you posses. Of course, professional role models, personal desires and goals are present there, as well. Each person has his or her own road to success.
However, it is not as of your career path is inscribed into your Tenth house once and for all.
It is meaningless, unless you decide really to use the information given. It tells you about what talents should you nurture, for example. It also points out what could be your ‘professional’ flaws and what should you avoid doing.
The point is to achieve your maximum by fully using your potentials. It may sounds easy, but it is not. You have to recognize all these fine details and carefully consider them.
This is why many truly talented people and genius minds never achieve any degree of public recognition; their brilliance stays in the shadow of others, maybe even less genius, but more capable of using and combining advantages they are given.
There are people who have amazing background and everything others would see as fortunate circumstances and yet, they gamble it all away and achieve nothing that lasts.
There are people who literally burn out in the fire of their own glory.
It greatly depends on how we see the idea of success, in the first place. The choice of occupation, the willingness to climb up the professional and social ladder greatly depends on aspects we have in our tenth house. The way we are going to act, in order to achieve set goals, is also determined by elements in the Tenth house.
The sign our Midheaven sits in determines the nature of our pursuit for professional goals, for public recognition and all related.
The Tenth house is always associated with one’s reputation and status. Medium Coeli is the best of it, to say so. The Tenth house is about rewards, accomplishments and glory. It could direct us towards areas of life we should focus on, in order to be accepted, recognized and praised for our work.
It could also point out dangerous paths that could lead us to negative publicity and failure.
It is of vital importance to understand aspects related to the Tenth house.
If they are favorable, it is likely that a person would find it difficult to focus on their career goals and eventually achieve some degree of success and popularity that comes along. If aspects are not in favor, the person could find it difficult to channel their potentials and achieve something.
The most misfortunate, in that sense, are perhaps destinies of some genius people that have become glorified after they died. They never had any idea that they could ever become popular.
Many amazing people have lived poor lives and even died in misery, but now we put them onto gilded pedestals. This is the irony that could be seen in the Tenth house.
