Your Midheaven (MC) is your reputation, public persona, and relates to your career. With the Midheaven in Pisces, you have a strong artistic streak that gives your public persona an appealing and mystical aura.

What a Pisces Midheaven Represents

The four angles are a fundamental principle of astrology. They are the backbone of a horoscope and the most personal points in a birth chart. The Midheaven (MC) is the point at the top of your natal chart. The MC is often associated with career paths. However, that's an oversimplification. Your MC represents your public persona. It's how others see you at work, on stage, on screen, when they hear your voice through a podcast, or read your voice in a book. What others think, see, or hear about you before they get to know you. It's your reputation, place in society, what you want to be known for, and how you want to be seen. The MC is the role you assume in any group, regardless of culture, status, or career. When young, it can be your highest aspiration. However, your MC takes time and maturity to fully bloom.

Midheaven in Pisces

Pisces is the mutable water sign of the zodiac ruled by Neptune, the planet of mystery and illusion. Those with a Pisces MC are often perceived to be elusive, artistic, empathetic, romantic, adaptive, restorative, imaginative, or glamorous and alluring. They may be noticed for their gentle, caring nature and for going to great lengths to ensure the happiness of those around them. Because their innovative mind is constantly creating, they can become the person everyone looks to for imaginative ideas. Those with a Pisces MC feel the most alive when they're contributing something creative and unique to the world.

Pisces Midheaven Career and Aspirations

Individuals with a Pisces MC aspire to tune into others and inspire them in a way no one else can. They achieve the most recognition in a career that enables them to use their empathic, spiritual, artistic, and somewhat psychic gifts. They can make their mark as a playwright, poet, screenwriter, artist, dancer, actor, musicians, singer, acupuncturist, naturopathic physician, counselor, or psychologist. Keep in mind that the entire natal chart plays a part in the best career choice for an individual with a Pisces MC. But whatever career they choose, they aspire to do it creatively and uniquely.

Pisces Midheaven Opposite Virgo Imum Coeli

The angle opposite the MC is called the Imum Coeli (IC.) A Pisces MC and a Virgo IC are opposites that are interconnected. The Pisces MC is the bloom and the Virgo IC is the taproot. With Virgo on the IC, those with a Pisces MC are likely to have an overly self-critical and analytical nature and a perpetual need for self-perfection that stems from childhood. While they might have a very different reputation, their close friends and family members know them to be realistic, intellectual, quiet, organized, and well put together. Their analytical nature, need for perfection, and their orderly private life are the taproot for their Pisces MC.
