Have you ever wondered what you've come to do in this world? Perhaps astrology can give you that much-desired answer. Midheaven is a cardinal point in your birth chart that tells astrologists around the world the life mission of their askers. Find out about the sign of your midheaven, and be a little less restless tonight.
Midheaven is the sign on the highest point of the horizon at the time of your birth; that is, the sign ruling over the peak of House X.
House X is your professional career, public life, and regarding midheaven, our vocation as well. It also tells us about innate skills, and the potential that can grow in our lives. Finally, it points out what makes us feel rewarded and motivated.
Other issues it deals with are reputation, the quickness in social improvement, and other ways through which we make progress. Is it through constant effort, like it happens with a Capricorn midheaven, or thanks to our niceness and willingness to help, such as Cancer? The sign where this essential cardinal point lies will give us important clues.
Midheaven in no way decides what we'll be, but it does give us guidelines about the possibilities of growth. It points out to a pathway where we can find ultimate success if we pay enough attention.

This point also talks about spiritual work. Indeed, success at work oftentimes comes along with the right focus on our beliefs and the way we see the world. But ultimately, it's all about how to make our spirit grow through the help of others, and making contributions to society with our unique collaboration.
Midheaven can be found when we calculate a natal chart, inputting all data into one of the many online programs already available. There's barely anyone who performs calculations by hand, it's too easy to go wrong in one of the operations!
Once our natal chart is calculated, it is pointed out straight away on which sign does the cardinal point fall (located in House X or 10). However, if it's hard for us to locate midheaven on a drawn astral chart, we should imagine the chart being crossed through by the cardinal points of north, south, east and west. Then, midheaven would be the northern cardinal point, at the peak of the vertical axis.
We can also create punctual astral charts to know how current planet transitions affect us in regards to a specific situation. In astral charts, we can see how planet transition occurs and the way it influences our midheaven, and whether those energies collaborate or hinder the achievement of our set goals.
Now that we know how to calculate midheaven and its location on a natal or astral chart, it's time to know the zodiac sign of the midheaven where it falls, because it'll be decisive for our professional and spiritual fate.

Anything related to arts and aesthetic goals is incredibly appreciated here. There's great chances of success in artisan work.
Language is highly promoted and the mind is constantly moving for you, Gemini, so this midheaven is geared towards goals connected with communications or the world of public relations.

The way up might be slow but it is safe, as it is the case of any earthy sign. However, dedication here is bordering on otherworldly. As a Capricorn midheaven, you won't stop until your wishes have been fully granted. And if your personal life needs to be put at stake, then so be it.

Teamwork is your biggest satisfaction. With an Aquarius midheaven, you'll always become involved in social causes and tend to favour spiritual growth, no matter what your job is.

If you have a Pisces midheaven and choose to follow your life mission, you're most likely to work on an artistic career, because inspiration quota is at an all-time high. Your ability to sympathise and connect with others is a precious tool that can turn against you, so you need to learn to disconnect from other people's issues.
