In this talk, Frank will explore the many facets of the Midheaven (MC). This much-neglected angle has much to say about our reputation and public image, and, as part of an axis, our parental messages and family inheritance. Astrologically, our MC complex reveals our personal definition of success and our deep-seated drives to make a societal/professional contribution. We can gain recognition when we “follow our bliss” and adopt the roles described by it. In this talk, Frank will offer new insights from his years of research into the MC–IC axis.
