Astrologically, your MC or Mid-heaven marks the highest point that the Sun will reach on the day that you were born. It symbolises that for which you should always be aiming – call it what you like – dharma, vocation, or personal path to enlightenment.
If you’re to achieve your full potential – self actualisation – then the energy symbolised by the zodiac sign on your MC (along with the condition and placement of its ruler), must be well integrated into your everyday life.
The MC is a very public place.
It represents that for which you will be known and remembered.
Make your choices with care.
TRANSITS THAT WILL PUSH YOU ALONG YOUR PATH:
- Transiting Uranus over your MC will force you to stop singing the ‘party line’ and forge your own path.
- Transiting Saturn over your MC will test you and your chosen path. If you’ve gone wrong, then get back on track. But if you’re already on track, then prepare to become the authority figure.
- Transiting Neptune over your MC will throw you into a fog of confusion. You need to emotionally connect with the right path. It won’t be easy but you don’t have a choice. Prepare to make a sacrifice of some kind.
- Transiting Pluto over your MC will force you off your current path (usually abruptly) unless it’s right for you; sometimes Pluto crossing your MC will put you in a position of immense power – be careful, please, how you use it.
