One of my favorite things about doing natal chart readings for people is simultaneously teaching them aspects of astrology that are less known.
Mostly everyone is familiar with their big three when they come to me for a reading: Sun, Moon and Rising Signs. However, there is so much more in your natal chart blueprint that plays a role in helping you find answers about your life’s purpose.
midheaven location and meaning
Your midheaven is located at an angle and is always on the cusp of your 10th house, it is always located at the top of your natal chart, which makes it easier to find and is usually abbreviated MC.
MC typically represents your public eye as it relates to your career, but it actually goes deeper than that. Midheaven represents your contribution to the world, a big part of your soul’s purpose during this lifetime. It is HOW your soul chose to make this world a better place.
do you feel unfulfilled in your current job?
Often, people come to me asking for a natal chart reading because they feel unhappy and unfulfilled at their job, they feel that they are meant for something different, something more meaningful.
If this is you, it may be helpful for you to look this information up before you make drastic changes and just quit. Sometimes when this knowledge is uncovered, the person has a chance to validate their current feelings, process their emotions around their place in the work environment and then be able to make a decision that best suits their future.
Not everyone can simply change a career path, especially when they have been doing the same thing and are settled in. Remember, MC isn’t just about the job, its about contribution.
You may not need to change jobs or careers, you may need to change HOW you are doing your current job, you may need to add other activities outside of your job, you may need to work on changing your mindset.

Scorpio on MC means you need to feel extremely passionate with your work, once you lose that passion, you completely check out and begin to feel unmotivated.
