The Medium Coeli, known as the midheaven in astrology, is located at the very top of your natal chart, or the 12 o’clock point. This point also marks the cusp of the 10th house of career, community presence, public persona and reputation. It also shows fame, achievement and honors.

Your midheaven speaks to your career goals and achievements, what you aspire to accomplish and how you are viewed by others in this realm. It is important to look at any planets in this sector of the chart and the aspects or connections they make with other planets and houses in the chart. Your midheaven shows where you are headed in life, the responsibilities you will take on and the type of career you will be most drawn to.

It’s important to know which of the four elements your midheaven is in because this can also show us the type of career you will naturally lean toward.
