We all know Astrology as the ‘zodiac signs’ we’ve all grown up with since birth. Exaggeration-aside, most of us know that Astrology is ‘just that’— zodiac signs.

In real Astrology, or should I say, in a deeper context, Astrology is the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial bodies interpreted as having an influence on human affairs and the natural world. And it doesn’t just stop on the interpretation of the zodiac which you are born with. It also consists of explanations of many aspects and planetary placements you are born with, one in which contains the Medium Coeli (meaning “middle of the sky) or ‘Midheaven’ — the angle that indicates career, status and aim in life, aspirations, public reputation, and our life goal.

It is located on the entrance of the 10th house of career, ruled by the hardworking zodiac, Capricorn, and Saturn—the planet of restrictions, discipline, and limitations.

Although getting a full reading to find out how you’re going to excel and what profession you can take to succeed best at, knowing where it is posited and positioned is also as equally as important either. This is how you know your behavior career-wise.
