“An unfulfilled vocation drains the color from a man’s entire existence.”
–Honore de Balzac
I’ve been getting a lot of career questions lately. One of the best indicators regarding career is the midheaven. The midheaven is one of the four angles. It is indicative of your public persona and descriptive of your skills and the tone of your general interaction with the outer world. The midheaven resonates to Saturn, work, responsibility. One way to assess the type of career to which you are suited is in exploring the qualities of the sign where your midheaven falls. Another way is to determine the ruler of your midheaven sign and examine its condition by sign, house placement and aspect.
For example, an Aries midheaven is generally independent and cardinal. Aries midheaven is great at starting projects and initiating action. Mars rules Aries. An Aries midheaven with Mars in Capricorn will be more likely to forge ahead steadily with the projects they start than one with Mars in Gemini whose action potential is more sporadic. This combination, midheaven and its sign ruler, is a great place to start when looking at career options.
Where is your midheaven and its ruler? Does it fit with your chosen career?
