Midheaven in the Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces MC
The MC & IC
The Midheaven (MC) is a great indicator of your public status and your career in your natal chart. The MC is in the 10th House and this shows how comfortable a person is with speaking with the public, as well as, what would be his or her career.
When speaking about the MC we cannot forget about the IC, these are both opposites to each other, however, they both need to work together and please each other in a way, so that you are achieving your mission.
So, when looking at your midheaven, you cannot disregard your IC (which is in your fourth house). The IC represents what it is that your true desire and the midheaven shows how that will be done in the public world.
Your IC is what you internally keep to yourself, and who you realize you are (which is about 6 years old), and hide it from the world, however, your MC is what you show the world.
The IC also represents the father figure, while the MC represents the mother figure in your natal chart.
To know your MC, you must know your date of birth and the exact hour you were born. Your MC is not your solar sign. May I remind you that your MC is in your tenth house cusp, while your IC is in your fourth house cusp and despite being opposite from each other, they are both very connected.
Below is a description of MC in the fire signs, however, you should take into consideration what planets are matching your tenth house, as well as any other aspects that it might create. So, make sure to see if you have any other planets in your MC and if they are creating any other aspects with other planets as well.
Midheaven in Cancer
If your Midheaven is in Cancer, this means that your IC is in Capricorn. Growing up you were very restricted at home, and your parents made you work hard. The father figure might have been highly attached to work and money, not giving you the love and attention that you needed. This is why, when you grow up you learn to nurture, protect, and cherish other people, and the public in general as if they were your own family. This is why most people with Cancer Midheaven have a career that is related to taking care of other people, such as children and the elderly. These people are also great with the health field so you might even work at a hospital or rehab center. Since you are very sensitive to other people’s needs, most people can take advantage of you and make fun of your public image, however, you are mostly liked by everyone and some people envy you for that same reason. You secretly crave attention and recognition for what it is that you do and are always aiming towards that possible promotion.
Midheaven in Scorpio
If your Midheaven is in Scorpio, your IC is in Taurus and this means that growing up you were very concerned and connected your family and your family’s opinion. Depending on several aspects of your chart, this also might mean that you rebelled against them many times, however, growing up they value very much their family’s expectations which is why they feel the weight of the world on their shoulders, however, in terms of a career you aren’t submissive, which means that you don’t like to take orders and neither do you like to serve others. You like to be involved in things that require deep investigations and dark topics that are related to Scorpio. People with a Midheaven Scorpio are great psychiatrists because they have the capacity of hearing whatever it is, that others might consider taboo. They are also great investigators. They also like to feel in control of what they do and like to somehow control and persuade others which can make them great sales reps as well. People with Midheaven in Scorpio might also follow the same path as their family members.
Midheaven in Pisces
If your Midheaven is in Pisces, your IC is in Virgo and this means that growing up you were that child who was very reserved and enjoyed reading books, you’d also like to fix broken items. A family member might have been so detail-oriented and wanted everything to be perfect, and this didn’t allow you to always freely express yourself and recognize your emotions. This is why later in life, you find the need to escape reality through your career and this can be writing books, performing art, singing, playing in a band, acting, painting, and physical or spiritual healing. Your career is built mostly on your emotions, and how you express them which to some is a gift, but to others might be challenging. Since Pisces is in the house of public persona, your reputation might also suffer from criticism now and then. However, in whatever it is that you do, most people can relate to you and you are very receptive to other people’s energies.
