is depicted like a mandala with its 360 degree circle. In the
center is home or "OM". Here is an invisible spot that acts as
a unification of the whole individual or perhaps, the soul. The
four directions of East, South, West, and North act as gateways
to other manifestations of the individual.
- The Midheaven
Angle is the South gateway and leads the soul toward group
and public action. It is about receiving a personal reputation,
personal views about career, and public responsibilities. It can
be about parental influences as well as being a parent. It is
also about how an individual interacts with group or global beliefs.
this angle there is experience of the world. The common experience
or the shared experience of others within the mainstream of life
is emphasized. Thus, institutions, organizations, big business
and government are often included in the experience of this angle.
Here is the world in the "palm of your hand" (William Blake) seen
first as a grain of sand. Thus, there is the power to feel and
experience how one is also many.
- The power
of this gateway is not separate from the power of the whole.
However, in location astrology, statistics have shown that famous
and very public people have strong planetary influences at this
angle. Each planetary influence has its own nature. Thus, a MOON
at the Midheaven could be about a writer or a healer. On the other
hand, a MARS at the Midheaven could be about an athlete or movie
to one planet and or angle is not the goal of location astrology.
Instead, the goal of Astrology is to become aware of personal
potential. Location Astrology is a way to improve sensitivity
and awareness. With that awareness the greater cultivation and
development of personal power and potential is then realized.
Thus, to activate one part of the whole is to bring balance and
accord with the whole. All mandala work is the work of a weaver
and a synthesis of the whole.
May we all find the balance within our hearts and minds to respond
with unity and truth for the greater good of humanity.
