Midheaven – How People See You Out In The World?

I was talking to satori about how the computer guys were condescending around my crashed hard drive.

“Maybe it’s my age,” I said. “It’s as if I couldn’t possibly have any data on my computer that would be important to save.”

She said computer guys always treated her very well.

“Well that’s because you look hip,” I said. “I don’t look hip, I’m from the desert. You know that picture where I’m standing in my bare feet, middle of nowhere?”


“Well I still look like that. No matter where I go, I look just like that and I never belong anywhere. I’m like a thing that has landed and people have no idea…”

I have Neptune on the midheaven and almost without fail, whoever people think I am, they’re mistaken. It is as if people don’t talk to me, but a hologram of me.

So what about you? What sign isΒ on your midheaven? Is there a planet conjunct?


Midheaven – How People See You Out In The World? — 108 Comments

  1. Capricorn. I have to agree with Toni. People, unless unbalanced, keep their distance. For some reason after they talk to me, they say I’m nothing like they thought I might be

  2. It always suprises me when I see old comments of mine. I never say the same thing twice. Today I’m a hip Gemini with a slightly murderous side.

  3. Oh I’m so late to comment…

    Capricorn MC conj.Mercury – I’m a young-wise person, people keep their distance yeah (they’d better, I’m secretive). Maybe one day I’ll be an old, young-looking person, or an old adolescent. Who knows? I’m definitely an alien as well, though…

  4. Aquarius midheaven and Venus in Gemini – I’m never the same way twice. I like to change my look, my style, my dress. I do everything from fluffy to punk depending on my mood. I do 18th century reenactments in dresses with big hoops or bustles. I shop at the thrift store so my wardrobe is eclectic. My hair is down to my waist at almost 60. I have never felt like I “fit in” anywhere, but I have never minded that.

    I don’t feel like a hologram, though – but that may be because with all the air in my chart I really don’t care what most people think.

  5. jupiter in gemini on the midheaven. (and neptune opposed midheaven but not jupiter.) but i don’t think i look hip. i don’t think i even know what i look like, except out of place. i almost picked alien, but i don’t think i’m coherent enough for that.

    i’m trying to be a sixties hipster sometimes. sometimes 20s flapper. or an 1860s girl. or a 2030 goth/industrial chick. it depends.

  6. I’m a hologram too. Pisces on my midheaven. Funny, I did not make one bit of connection to your Neptune/midheaven experiences until you posted this poll. I don’t think I have as bad a case as you (no planets conjunct).

    But people always think I’m: some person’s mom/sister/wife/girlfriend (mistaken); think I grew up wealthy when the opposite is true; think my name is Jennifer; think I’m not the type to have a Ph.D., etc, etc. I kind of agree– I don’t think I “look” much like any of the things that are true about me.

    Side note, throughout my life strangers have approached me to tell me I look like Drew Barrymore (a Pisces!)

  7. i voted alien. i have tauras on the midheaven, lots of trines and some oppositions but no conjuncts.

    some people seem to think i’m hip, and it always kinda surprises me. others act afraid of me. neighbors have dubbed me “the crazy cat lady” without ever having spoken to me. but i suppose i have to take some credit for that. i’ve been known to go to the store in my sock monkey pj pants, too, and my hair is pink in the heart of the midwest. so what do i expect?

  8. I’ve been told moody, pissed off, intelligent, and daunting–yes, all 4 at the same time. I’m not that at all and have nothing conjunct the MC (Capricorn), but the Moon (Libra) squares it and Mercury (Virgo) trines it. Makes sense.

  9. well thanks elsa! i’ll remember that the next time i’m getting the “alien” looks.

    elsa thinks i’m hip, so fuck you, you boring, conformist motherfuckers! *snort*

  10. Virgo MC . . . closest aspect is a semi-sextile from Pluto. Huh, no wonder others see me as competent in the workplace but very low key. Never thought about it before . . . thanks, Elsa! πŸ™‚

  11. I’m a Gemini with Midheaven in Taurus. I put people at their ease if they’re shy, or demand their respect if they’re not, or know the reason why. Rawr. πŸ™‚

    Gemini doesn’t so much make me hip as give me that aura of always knowing what I’m talking about (even when I don’t, which is most of the time).

  12. I’m hip because I’m a gemini – aquarius midheaven, no planets though. Gemini ascendant, too – here I am, chattering away.

  13. when I go out I am invisible….I don’t know what is in my midheaven….sorry. Oct.31,1970 Colo. Springs, Co…for those that are interested and want to find out.

  14. Cancer MC, with Sun & Saturn conjunct MC. I have no idea how this plays out except I think people see me as somewhat abrupt or aloof when I’m out in the world. I think the Saturn comes across more than the Sun.

  15. Aries AC, with the Taurus Sun near the MC in the 10th. Definite superstar! Ruler of MC (Mars in Leo) in the 1st house conjunct Jupiter & north node. Any thoughts anyone??

  16. Ariel and C. I totally relate. Aquarius MC here too. I took so long to read all the comments I forgot whether I checked alien or hologram. Both apply. It depends upon the day of the week.

    That whole fitting in thing just doesn’t seem to work though.

    As for computer geeks – Elsa you almost have to feel sorry for them. They don’t know how to talk to you unless you talk computer. Many are borderline if not full blown Asperger’s and often haven’t been socialized. I know, I live with a household full of them. Basic basic things escape their notice. But if you tell them “x is a nicer way to behave in this situation” They will fall all over themselves to act like that.

    That is, unless you are talking about the Geeks at the Apple store. They’re just plain rude – especially if you’re a woman. I know, I speak geek and they’ve been rude to me even though I speak their language. Sad really, customer service means something in my world.

  17. Another Gemini MC here. My Sun also conjuncts Mercury and I am Virgo rising…People never stop telling me that i leave the impression that i have something on my mind or that i am sly and slippery. Also immature and charming.Or charmingly immature, i don’t know πŸ˜› And not responsible.At all…Not looking friendly,though, maybe because of my mars,pluto and a bunch of asteroids in scorpio, 3rd house. But as you may have noticed, i really don’t mind talking.

  18. [Jessica says on 3/7/08 at 11:16 am]

    My mom and other people have said i resmble Drew Barrymore also. But, I also look like Susan Sarandon and Wynona Ryder too…hey they see it, not me.

  19. huge issue for me. I have a cancer mc with uranus in leo 13 degrees away. My mc ruler is in the 12th house in virgo. I am a serious introvert and I work a tech job – with machines – people trust me to fix stuff and I give them a sense of security when I am around because they think I can fix anything. I am popular with my kids but most people don’t notice me and my co-workers avoid me. I don’t know why – I am good to them but they don’t include me in stuff –

  20. Baaaaaahahaha! Mudlikesubstance, you hilarious! But I have to agree, computer geeks are patronising. That’s their schtick- they have very little else in life that makes them feel good about themselves. They were even like that to Carrie on Sex&TC so it MUST be true…

  21. Jilly, I’m with you. I don’t really know how people see me anymore, and with a mask on … people just stare or get out of the way!

    Libra mid-heaven with Neptune … that might be why I LOVE ZORRO!

  22. Moon, Jupiter and Saturn trine my MH in Scorpio + Aquarius rising + Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Uranus in the 9th house.
    I feel like a backpacker hologram.

  23. I put something else because I’ve always considered myself a chameleon. I have Neptune conjunct the MC. In my experience, I am never what people thought I was. Sometimes I’m delighted to hear that. I also have Aquarius on the AC. I tend to be outside the group. If I’m with conservatives, I’m the odd one; if I’m with freaks, then I’m the conservative one. We all have a role to play.

  24. So why the midheaven vs the ascendant? I have uranus conjunct my Scorpio midheaven and I feel like I never know how people will see me! Sometimes they think i’m distant or unhappy or ambitious (cap asc maybe?), sometimes they think i’m naive or dumb, and sometimes they see the real me and they’re pleasant. No effin clue elsa!

  25. People do occasionally have inexplicably strong reactions to me. A fitness club rep (who I neverhad more than a passing hello with) told me I make her feel stupid! This stuff happens to me once every couple of years. People who I hardly notice go berserk! Maybe that’s uranus.

  26. I already answered, but Aquarius midheaven, Gemini sun/rising. And yes, I answered I look hip cuz I am a Gemini. As if there is any other option?

  27. I have MC in Leo and people keep their distance – presumably because Leo is ruled by sun in Scorp conjunct Neptune. It’s odd, I dunno how to explain it.

    As for the computer geeks, well, it’s their job to save your data no matter what, so I don’t know where they get off.

    [‘I should smile more.’]

  28. I have Aquarius midheaven conjuct my moon and sun/rising in Gemini like Shannon. I sometimes think I look like a hip alien,lol.

  29. Cappy MC ,conjunct south node and BML also square my sun and merc venus (if I’m recalling correctly).

    I chose the last one because I kind of do not know for sure either.Everything I can think of could relate to my Aries asc more than a Cappy MC lol

  30. Aquarius midheaven with Moon conjunct,and Uranus opposing in the 4th house. I suspect alot of people perceive me as being some aloof,distant, and stuck up. But, then I am a Virgo with Mars conjunct Sun so they are probably not far off.

  31. This is my first time commenting on this blog.

    I picked I’m a superstar, baby!

    But, I’m a pisces midheaven, cancer ascendant.

    So why do people in halls, back when I was at school, in libraries, or etc., all seem to notice me? Does my stellium in Leo have something to do with that? I always thought your ASC was what you appeared to others, when you stepped into a room, and the MC is what you appear to others, at a distant, societal level. Neither the cancer ASC or pisces MC seem to point to my getting attention.

    If anybody wants to comment, or hypothesize, I’d love to read your thoughts. πŸ™‚

  32. Sorry, as a continuation of the above,

    no planets conjunct the MC – nor the ASC, for that matter. No planets in the 1st, nor the 10th house.

    Yet, without a doubt, “I’m a superstar, baby!” seems most applicable to me – in public at least. Privately, to friends, I confess that I do not feel like this with people, with strangers, but they tend to, unanimously, express that it is a fact that many seem to like me, and boys, especially, seem to like noticing me.

    Sorry for the redundancy. I’m not sure if the case i’ve presented here and the above post are applicable to Elsa’s initial question, in the above.

  33. Haha Thanks Elsa. You’re probably extremely busy – but if you want, would you comment? You’d probably be very qualified to comment (this site and your name – it appears to me more than a mere coincidence. ;)).

  34. I have similar to William up there… Aquarius midheaven with Moon conjunct and Uranus opposing in the 4th house. Mine is a little odd in that my MC is early degrees Aquarius but my moon is late degrees Capricorn. I put that I’m the girl next door… Pisces warmth with Aquarius friendliness.

  35. I think I have no idea. I am here, then there, then somewhere else.

    Gemini MC, Jupiter (opp. Lilith) nearby in Gemini but not conjunct. Pluto/Uranus 1st, opp. Saturn and Chiron. It’s a hodgepodge, to be certain.

    One thing I have noticed is that I can “fit in” with pretty much any group. I can morph and adapt to their way of communicating and if I hang out with them long enough, even their style. Young, old, rich, poor, straight and freaks – I’ve got friends in each group. They don’t mix well, but I am like a common denominator.

    I think maybe that just makes me a freak.

  36. my sign on the MC is Scorpio in Placidus system, which I used for years, until I found equal houses on this blog. I use that now and it makes a lot more sense to me, in just about all the charts I look at, of people I know. So in equal houses my MC is Libra, but people keep their distance until I allow them close, as I am reserved at first with Cap ASC.

  37. I’m not sure how people see me. It depends on the person I guess.I’ve been told by people that they see me as sweet and kind and then the next minute they see a warrior type side to my personality.
    I’m not sure where that comes from, it usually happens with people who push my buttons though. I also hear that I’m wierd alot and I’ve just started apologizing and telling people that wierd is normal for me and that they shouldn’t try to catagorize me and/or put me in a box.

    Also, Elsa and Satori,I haven’t met a computer repair person who didn’t behave condecendingly. I’m beginning to think that the power has gone to there head. lol!

    My MC is Pisces in my 9th house ruled by Aquarius and I have Gemini Rising. Plus I have these aspects to my MC with nothing in my 1st/12th/9th/10th houses.

    Moon (Vir 08Β°36’) Midheaven (Pis 11Β°21’) sep. opposition

    Venus (Cap 02Β°01’) Midheaven (Pis 11Β°21’) wax. app. quintile

    Uranus (Sco 08Β°30’) Midheaven (Pis 11Β°21’) wax. sep. trine

    Black Moon (Tau 12Β°22’) Midheaven (Pis 11Β°21’) wan. app. sextile

  38. A little late here but Libra on the MC conjunct Venus and sextile Jupiter. I have heard that people forget how small I really am (physically…I’m 5-3, 115-120 lbs). It also appears that I have a reputation for being attractive and men seem to get in trouble with their wives/girlfriends for talking to me. Maybe moon in Scorpio adds to that. I have 5 planets in Sag (including Sun and Asc) so I really just think I’m friendly and don’t often realize that people see me any other way.

  39. Elsa, I’m confused — I thought people saw you as your ascendant & planets conjunct. Or is the ascendant how you WANT to be perceived – the mask you are hiding in — but you don’t fool them at all because people really see the MC?

    I have Libra Neptune, Mercury and ascendant conjunct within minutes, with a first house Sun in Scorpio. So would people first notice the Cancer MC, the Libra ascendant or the Scorpio sun, or would they be deceived by the Neptune/Mercury conjunction? This seems complicated.
