Are you on the road in life? Don’t know where to go? I feel you. Just a few years ago, I found myself in the same place searching for meaning and direction. I just returned home after a few years abroad and needed a career change, or at least a change some kind of change, and the right effect. Where is my North Star? If only there was some kind of pattern or sign pointing me in the right direction.
It turns out my answer is in the stars! While delving into my birth chart during a night of drinking at home, I discovered the center of the heavens for the first time – my North Star. I was waiting for a clear path and a leader to guide me, but my celestial center in Leo showed me that I was meant to create my own path and lead others. Now that I have half of the puzzle, I took some time for self-reflection to understand better What I want to lead.
With all the changes that are happening in my life, I feel very lonely. I want to be a support system for others so they don’t have to feel that way. As an introvert, reaching out and building connections with people is it is not easy way for me (terrible even), but my midheaven in Leo showed me that the work behind-the-making will not cut it if I want to create a real change. I need to be a shining example of who I want to be during my difficult times.
Once I started using my celestial center for my own good, my life started to change for the better and I felt more positive. Because of this, as well as working with the midheaven throughout my astrological career, I have discovered how powerful knowing your midheaven is when it comes to solving life-long puzzles of how to live your life.
What is Midheaven?
In astrology, the midheaven is the highest point in the sky when we are born. It represents how others view us and how our natural gifts are when we are on earth. In order to live your inner heaven well, it is important to reflect and know your inner desires, goals and passions. Once you know your inner world well, you can use your midheaven as a vehicle for action.
How to find your Midheaven
To find your celestial center, you must first upload your birth chart (I love you Astro.com for this). Be sure to select “Full icon” for the home system. Generally, the midheaven is in the 10thth house, but can be found in 8th9th11thor even 12th house and some charts.
In my birth chart below, you’ll see it says “MC” at 10th house. This is the center of my heaven. On the outer ring of the circle, you can see the zodiac sign for each house. In my case, 10 mth house and center of heaven is in the sign of Leo.
