M.C. The Midheaven in Your Birth Chart

We conclude our discussion of the Cross of Matter, our doorways to the world, with the Midheaven or “MC”.  This is the highest point in the chart, the axis at the beginning of the 10th house (labeled S )and represents your “Public Self”, how you are seen in the world, your reputation & position in the world.  It describes your calling or occupation, often describing the quality & type of professional work you engage in, the direction in which you would like to go in this lifetime, as well as the character qualities you aspire to.   

The sign on the M.C. will give you an idea of which careers you might consider. What follows are some ideas for each of the signs.
