Aspirations and Your Public Self


The Midheaven

(c) Janusz Gawron

Midheaven in Libra: You've got a polished, sociable public persona that allows you to make good connections. You project an image of fairness and flexibility. A versatile attitude allows you to go with the flow and adjust your career path as times change. Your eye for what's in style translates well to image consulting, decorating, the arts, entertainment media. But you're just as likely to go for intellectual careers, like law, politics, public policy, diplomacy, writing. Your sense of balance and high-integrity makes you a sought after partner in business. Having charm in spades makes you a good interviewee, and inspires others to help you up the ladder of success.

Midheaven in Scorpio: You're able to go deeply into one field, and become an expert researcher, leaving no stone unturned. Your penetrating mind is both respected and feared by colleagues. You excel in areas like depth psychology, criminal investigating, hypnosis, dramatic arts, social sciences. You prefer to have long periods to work in solitude without interruption. You might make your mark by taking transforming waste into something reusable. You shine light into the shadows, and tread in dark, primal psychic territory. This could lead you into energy healing work, sex therapy (Tantra) or soul retrieval. You're good at spotting hidden motives, and this serves you in any endeavor. You're likely to undergo a metamorphosis several times, possibly changing careers.

Midheaven in Sagittarius: You're expansive and open to inter-disciplinary fields. Drawn to sharing what you know with others, through teaching, counseling or as a spiritual quester and guide. You're the eternal student, and thrive in life work that allows you to research, investigate, explore, philosophize and connect dots. Some such fields are higher education, the clergy, journalism, languages, writing, photography, filmmaking and theatre. Travel unlocks new possibilities, as you weave in cross-cultural influences, ideas and wisdom.

Midheaven in Capricorn: You're suited to climbing personal mountains, and have special endurance to reach your goals. Those with earthy charts veer into fields like farming, real estate, food product businesses, horticulture. This is a mega ambitious Midheaven, and one that gears you toward stability, wealth-building and slow sure steps to success. Your public persona is serious and determined, and this earns you respect. You make use of your time and resources, and know how to gain support from others.

Midheaven in Aquarius: You bring an unconventional attitude to your life's work, and love excitement, glamour and originality. You're willing to follow a genius idea to its fruition, even if that means bucking tradition and being labeled a rebel in your field. It's possible, you'll make sudden breakthroughs that gain you notoriety. You are challenged by gadgets and cosmic science, and could be drawn into astronomy, astrology, computer science, engineering.

But you're just as likely to ride the currents of trends, in fashion, design, experimental art and music. You may make your mark as an instigator for social change, especially progressive causes that you believe will better humanity. You might find special interest in the idea of extra-terrestrial life, and pursue it as part of your quest to go beyond the usual limits of thought.

Midheaven in Pisces: You shine in fields where you're able to swim in deep waters. A very creative Mid-heaven, that sets you up to be an artist, performer, a healer, a friend to kids and animals, and use your intuition as a tool. Your strength is your sensitivity, but also may keep you from claiming your full potential. Your gift is to shape the collective messages, through song, story, nurturing, spiritual teachings, and just by being who you are.

You may be drawn to working on or near the water, and have the ability to tune into non-verbal kinds of communication (animals, marine life, nature spirits, elementals, inter-dimensional beings). Pisces rules the feet, and this could lead to work as a reflexologist, podiatrist or just someone that loves to give/receive foot massages!
