We’ve made it halfway through our journey around the houses and find ourselves at the 4th and 10th house polarity also known as the Midheaven and Immum Coeli, stretching up to the top of the heavens, and reaching down to the bottom of the heavens respectively.
Also known as the parental axis as well as the home and career polarity, it is here where we settle into our roots and find a sense of belonging through our past and our comfort zone, and also where we look up and stare up at our role models and the people we aspire to emulate in the future.
The depths of the 4th house and IC are the psychological basement and our most subconscious realm. So this is where we may discover experiences where we allow our auto-pilot to kick in.
But this may not always be a welcome survival mechanism – how we relate to this untapped realm is revealed by the IC/4th house and the planets that we find there, whether productive or not.
On the flip side, the 10th house and MC (Midheaven) is where we are our most public, and displays the qualities we are happy for the world to know about us.
Planetary transits to this polarity can shape who we are and leave a lasting impression on the MC.
But this simple explanation of the MC/IC axis really doesn’t do these houses any justice – like the entire subject of astrology, it’s a lifetime of in-depth study when you really sink your teeth into it.
However, I’ve done what I can to highlight some of the more interesting facets of the MC/IC axis for you to explore in your own charts and I’ve discussed a subscriber chart, too!
I hope this episode helps you get in touch with who you truly are and what you were born to be.
