Let’s dive into the meaning of the Midheaven in Pisces in astrology!
What Does Your Midheaven Mean in Astrology?
The MC is one of the most important and most time-sensitive points in the birth chart. It can be calculated only if you know your precise time of birth because during a 24 hour period, all twelve zodiac signs pass through this point.
The Midheaven represents the top of the sky in the birth chart (which is a snapshot of the sky at a given moment, as seen from a given place).
In astrology, this point is associated with your career and professional path. It is more complex than just what you do for a living (this topic belongs to the sixth house), it’s about the general trajectory of your career. It’s important that the Midheaven is not about your personality in the first place, it reflects your life path. The sign here tells which sign’s qualities your maturity comes from.
Besides occupation, the MC is also about your greatest accomplishments you are remembered by. This point tells how the world (people who are not in personal contact with you) see you and what they know about you. The MC also represents your perception of authority and what you are like as an authority figure. This point refers to one of the parents as well.
In the horoscope, the Midheaven is linked with the tenth house and Capricorn. The MC is the cusp of the tenth house in some house systems, but in others, it can fall anywhere between the 8th and the 12th house (this depends on the distance of your place of birth from the Equator).
If you have your Midheaven in Pisces, it is ruled by Jupiter and Neptune. The position of these planets in the birth chart give more information about your career path.
10th House or Midheaven in Pisces Meaning
As the last sign of the Zodiac, Pisces is transcendental and it is strongly connected to the realm of dreams, magic, faith. This higher force influences the path of Midheaven in Pisces people: they are driven by their need to tap into this energy instead of merely fulfilling everyday life’s duties. At their bests, Midheaven in Pisces people grow into visionaries. They can be inspiring and profoundly creative leaders.
This placement suggests that you do your best work when you are emotionally invested in the project. The MC-IC axis in Pisces and Virgo suggests that you are learning to bring your creative and rational side together. You need a career that you feel deeply passionate about and you genuinely believe in. The Midheaven in Pisces indicates that you struggle in a job that has no meaning, although you probably have a few of them when young. It’s important to you that you have a certain amount of freedom and you love to use your own ideas as opposed to following a set of rigid rules. People with this placement usually enjoy working with others given that the collective is supportive in general.
As mentioned before, Midheaven in Pisces people are often drawn to healing work. This can manifest in the strictest sense of the word as being drawn to careers in healthcare, but they can have a healing effect on society through art too, for example. The MC in Pisces suggests that you are very supportive and empathetic towards people who are going through a hard time, especially if your ascendant falls in Cancer. Opposed to the intellectual humanitarianism of Aquarius, Pisces is connected to the collective emotional state on an deep, subconscious level.
The Midheaven in Pisces is also excellent for any type of creative work. You can find a lot of these people in artistic fields. However, the ability of Pisces to draw inspiration is welcome in any profession, not just art. You can find Pisces emphasized in the charts of scientists as well who come up with unique ideas (Einstein’s Midheaven falls in Pisces too!). You express your intuitive side in your professional life.
It can happen that you only have a blurry idea about what you want to pursue as your career. The Midheaven in Pisces suggests that you long to connect with your true purpose, but often, you only find it at a later age. Or this can also play out the world seeing you as professionally disoriented. You are probably interested in many different things and you can
When it comes to authority which the Midheaven also is about, you may be prone to idealizing it.
The Midheaven represents one of your parents too. The Midheaven in Pisces implies that you perceived this parent as sensitive, dreamy, soft, but also naive, emotionally unstable and struggling with boundaries. They might have been into spirituality or struggle with addictions. This placement can also mean that one of the parents was in some way absent and the other parent did most of the work in the family.
Pisces MC Careers
Career is seen through quite a few factors in the birth chart. The MC sign is not enough in this aspect. However, it can give you a few general ideas about which career you were born for.
Some typical Midheaven in Pisces careers:
- medicine, nursing
- social work
A natal Midheaven in Pisces suggests a reputation of a sensitive, selfless, empathetic person. The world sees these people as artists and healers. Their creativity is one of the first things people associate them with. You are known as kind, caring, sweet.
The Midheaven in Pisces can also play out as being known for your addictions or escapist tendencies. People may see you as unreliable. This placement can mean being self-conscious about your reputation.
IC in Virgo
The Midheaven in Pisces automatically puts your Imum Coeli in Virgo.
This point is exactly opposite the MC, and its meaning is oppositional as well. The IC represents your private life in astrology. It is the face you show only to your family and your closest friends. The IC is associated with home life, your actual home, your roots and your ancestors. The IC in Virgo is ruled by Mercury. This planet in the birth chart is also important when analyzing your fourth house.
This placement means that honing your craft plays an important role in your career development. The MC builds on the IC, so you are the most able to pour the creativity of Pisces into a tangible shape if you do your Virgo-like analysis first. However, if you are stuck in the energy of Virgo, you stand so strongly with both your feet on the ground that you forget that there’s more than what’s meets the eye.
The IC in Virgo suggests that growing up, you were surrounded by hardworking people. Often, this placement indicates that you were expected to do your fair share of the housework too. One of the parents might have been particularly demanding or wanted you to strive for perfection. They could have been passive-agressive as well.
At a young age, many people with this placement struggle with feeling inadequate and overly self-criticial. As you grow older, you learn to give unconditional love to yourself what makes you able to give it to the world too.
