Midheaven in Taurus Meaning in the Natal Chart
The Midheaven is often designated in the chart as MC which is an abbreviation for Medium Coeli (middle of the sky in Latin). This angle can help you find out what you want to do in life. It’s one of the most vital points in the natal chart. In some house systems, it is the cusp of the tenth house (but not in every house system). This angle is associated with your:
- public image
- career path
- your greatest accomplishments
- one of the parents
- authority figures in your life and you as an authority figure.
People with their natal Midheaven in Taurus would deep down like to leave an outstanding legacy behind. It might not be what they do for a living, but not rarely do they enjoy creating something in the physical world.
This MC sign suggests a talent for aesthetics. Even if your career doesn’t involve art or beauty in the strict sense, it is still a big part of your life, and you are seen as someone who has excellent taste. You love quality and as you grow older, you learn to enjoy life more and more. Learning to enjoy the present moment is particularly meaningful because at a young age you often lacked resources and had to focus on navigating the chaos, not on smelling the flowers.
Midheaven in Taurus people dream about stability. However, with this placement, it often happens that your professional life is more peaceful and stable than your home.
People with this placement usually prefer a stable, relaxed professional environment. In your work, you prioritize efficiency. Taurus hates misusing resources, be it time or money. It’s important to you to make the most out of what is available. Your career might involve work of this type. Often, people with this placement dislike job-hopping. Ideally, they would invest their energy in one thing so that they can do really high-quality work here.
In your career, you probably prefer security to risk-taking. Unless the rest of the chart contradicts this, you are more drawn to foreseeable career paths and you like to have good work-life balance. You need a low-stress, stable job which allows you to express your creativity. You are the happiest when your work is aligned with your values.
This doesn’t mean that you don’t have a talent for business, because Taurus does have it. However, you have a different attitude to it compared to daredevil and hotheaded Aries who is an adrenaline junkie. You like to think it through first, make good plans, and only then get started. You are practical and efficient about achieving your goals.
As a fixed sign, Taurus persistently works towards a goal even when it’s hard. If you have your Midheaven is in Taurus, your approach to your career is determined and you are ready to face any challenge that pops up on the journey. You have laser focus when it comes to what really matters to you in life. You value accomplishments that require effort and hard work.
When a goal really matters to you, you are really stubborn about it, but you prefer goals that you set for yourself, not what others impose on you. At a young age, you probably cared more about the goals of others. It might be hard to make decisions for yourself.
As an authority figure, you believe in a conservative approach. You expect people to do their best and respect you, but you strive to be fair. You might be a control freak, though, and your subordinates might perceive you as too domineering.
This position in the natal chart suggests a talent for managing money. Some people with this Midheaven sign actually work in finance, but even if you don’t, you probably keep track of your money in your private life well and you make rational decisions regarding your expenses. Money is likely very important to you in life, the older you are the more so. In your view, success in the world might mean having a lucrative career. To some with this placement, social status is outstandingly important.
If you have your Midheaven in Taurus, it is ruled by Venus. Venus becomes really important if you have this position, and you should find it in your chart and blend it with your Midheaven.
The Midheaven in Taurus is similar to the 10th house in Taurus.
In the world, you might be known as someone who is extremely reliable, resilient, calm, someone people can always count on. Others see you as someone very organized. They see you as grounded and down-to-earth, yet sophisticated at the same time. Often, people with their Midheaven in Taurus have a reputation of being beautiful and charming, and they want to show their best side to the world. You might be seen in your field as a connector and generally a popular person.
If this placement is accompanied by planets in the tenth, ninth, eleventh houses, you might grow into an important member of your communities. Having a good reputation is important to you.
IC in Scorpio
The IC (short for Imum Coeli) is the other half of the MC-IC axis. It is linked with the fourth house, which is the house of home and family. It describes how you view your home environment, both the one you grew up in and the one you live in as an adult. The IC is also associated with your roots, heritage, and one of your parents. As opposed to the MC which is all about your public self, the IC speaks about your private life which is hidden from the world.
You can the best understand where you are going if you know where you are coming from. People with their MC in Taurus strive towards stability—but why?
Often, they lacked it as children. Turmoil was likely a constant in your home. Some people experienced even deeply traumatic events as children. The hardships you went through at the beginning of your life serve as fuel for your achievements later.
Sometimes this placement manifests as keeping your private life a secret. Some IC in Scorpio people can be manipulative or controlling at home, or alternatively, they might live with a controlling person in the family. Another how this placement might work is experiencing Scorpioic things as a child (manipulation, betrayal, chaos, trauma, intensity). The silver lining is that you probably grew up equipped with resilience and inner strength.
With the Midheaven in Taurus and IC in Scorpio, you are likely to undergo a few deep transformations before you unlock your greatest potential. Healing any childhood scars is important with this placement.
Taurus Midheaven Careers
Let’s see which are the typical career paths characteristic for this MC sign. Some common Midheaven in Taurus careers include:
- work related to nature
- art and design
- the beauty industry, fashion
I can’t emphasize enough that in astrology, everything should be read in the context of everything else—the sign on the Midheaven is necessary but not sufficient to come to a conclusion regarding one’s career path.
You also need to pay attention to the ruler of your Midheaven, if you have any planets in your tenth house, and the other two earth houses too (the second and the sixth).
