Your Ideal Job, According To Your Midheaven Zodiac Sign

Astrology buffs know that the stars can tell you a lot about who you are — especially if you delve deeper than your basic sun signs. There's your rising sign, your moon sign, your house signs, and more that can help you decipher your life's trajectory and your personality. Your midheaven sign, which is actually an angle on your chart located at the cusp of your tenth house, can also tell you what your career looks like and how you find success.

"The midheaven is the 10th house of one’s birth chart," astrologer Lisa Stardust tells Refinery29. "It represents our public life, standing, and career goals. More importantly, it describes our purpose in life and what we can give to society."

Along with career goals, it also represents your most outer self, your connection with the world, your purpose in this lifetime, your achievements, and your aspirations. "It's not necessarily where we make our most success or our most money, but it is where we will find the most success and where we will feel more fulfilled," explains Alexandria Lettman, the resident astrologer for The SoulUnity, a healing collective. "It could be your side hustle rather than your job."

Learning how your midheaven sign relates to your professional life and how you find fulfillment can be eye-opening. To find yours, use a site like to create your birth chart (you'll need your birth day, birth time, and birth place), then look for what sign is in your 10th house or midheaven. Then keep reading for some information that might help you plan your career path.


If your midheaven is in Aries, you're a go-getter when it comes to your career and work life. "Aries' 10th house is ruled by Saturn, which means they're drawn towards careers that focus on organizing and leading — think boss, politics, principal, or any position of power," Stardust says.

Lettman agrees. She says that those with their midheaven in Aries seek a competitive working environment, somewhere where they can feel adventurous and where they can assert themselves and be a leader. "They do very well in managerial positions, project leaders, sports, basically anything that's action-oriented," she explains. They thrive in a position where their day-to-day is never the same. Repetitiveness is their worst enemy.Photographed by Megan Madden.

If Taurus is your midheaven sign, you're probably seeking a creative job that also pays well. (It's a good midheaven sign for big-name celebs, Lettman notes.) "They're good creators, they seek out jobs that will award them the type of lifestyle they want regarding comfortability and the financial side of things," she explains. "They tend to lean more towards the creative side, music, film arts, that sort of thing."

Stardust says that their 10th house is ruled by Uranus, which means they're drawn towards careers that they also focus on bringing people together and changing society at large. "Think innovator, tech, or medicine," she says.Photographed by Megan Madden.

Those with their midheaven in Gemini thrive through sharing and gaining information. "Anything that allows them to communicate with others and have that give and take is good for them," Lettman says. "They get very bored easily, so they need to be constantly intellectually stimulated. They are more likely to change careers throughout their lifetimes or have more than one job at the same time. They're great at having side hustles."

Stardust says that their 10th house is ruled by Neptune, which means they are drawn towards careers that focus on healing, giving, and selling visions to others. She says this person would thrive as a salesperson, spiritual guru, newscaster, journalist, or publicist.Photographed by Megan Madden.

If your midheaven is in Cancer, that means your 10th house is ruled by Mars. "They are drawn towards careers that boost and elevate their status. Think of working for luxury brands," Stardust explains. "They have to excel at work and be the best at their job at all times."

Lettman says the people with this placement are more likely to work with family members or their partners. "They're also more likely to go into a family business or encourage their children to pursue the career they took up. They want to feel as though they are loved and respected and appreciated in their job." Photographed by Megan Madden.

"Their 10th house is ruled by Venus, which means they are drawn towards careers that embrace glamour and focus on their innate talents," Stardust says. "Think modeling and acting."

Lettman agrees, saying that people who have their midheaven in Leo are born to be in the spotlight. "They find fame quite effortlessly. No matter what career they choose, they're more likely to be a household name for that field and recognized for being the best in that business," she says. "They're amazing entertainers, creators, and CEOs. They want to leave behind a legacy, they want a career and a job that precedes their lifetime."Photographed by Megan Madden.

"Their 10th house is ruled by Mercury, which means they are drawn towards careers that focus on helping the public evolve their mindset," Stardust says.

"They're naturally drawn to careers that help other people," Lettman says. Think scientists, doctors, humanitarians, holistic healers, nutritionists; jobs that center around serving other peoples' needs or fulfilling a purpose. "They have to have some sort of purpose to what they're doing or else it doesn't feel worth it to them," Lettman explains. "They enjoy environments that are structured and organized." Those with their midheaven in Virgo generally tend to choose safe careers that they know are always going to be around and needed.

Stardust also notes that they work well with having two different careers at once, so if this is you, consider a side hustle. Photographed by Megan Madden.

Stardust says that those with their midheaven in Libra have their 10th house ruled by the Moon. "This means they are drawn towards careers that focus on nurturing, clothing, or feeding the public, she explains. "Think chef or food industry, or a career in the fashion industry."

Lettman also says that they're very good mediators, they're excellent at working with other people, and they tend to be creative and artistic. "They're most likely to find a romantic partner or lifelong friends through the work that they do," she adds. "They have very good public presence and likability, which is why public roles or teaching is very good for them."

If your midheaven is in Scorpio, your 10th house is ruled by the Sun. As you can probably guess, that means you're drawn to a career that lets your star shine, Stardust says. You're a leader; a place where you're one of many employees isn't the best fit. Honestly, if there were ever a person destined to be a social media influencer, it would be someone with their midheaven in Scorpio.

"They're more likely to work in jobs that people don't necessarily understand or there isn't much information out there about it," Lettman adds. "People see the role but they aren't exactly sure what it entails." Photographed by Megan Madden.

The midheaven in Sag is ruled by Mercury, Stardust says. "They're drawn towards careers that focus on exposing the underbellies of society through writing," she says. "Think blogger or political writer."

Lettman says that people with this placement need a career that's focused on bettering the world: "They're amazing leaders, they work excellent in politics, sales, investments, and they're popular public figures and public speakers." Dreamy Sags like to be on the move as well, which means that any job that allows them to travel is a great option for them.

If your midheaven is in Capricorn, your 10th house is ruled by Venus, and you're likely best suited for a career that focuses on bringing harmony and peace to others who are in relationships. Think: marriage therapist, says Stardust.

Sounds stressful, but this kind of career is perfect for them. "They can thrive in the more tense working environments that may overwhelm other people," Lettman says. She also notes that they want a job where they are highly respected in their field and they're not willing to mix business and pleasure. "They want a serious working environment and they make very good mentors and advisors and managers."

"Their 10th house is ruled by Pluto, which means they are drawn towards careers that focus on understanding life’s mysteries on a deep level to bring change," Stardust says. A person with their midheaven in Aquarius would feel fulfilled as an investigative journalist.

They're also the type of people to create the job they want, which makes them natural entrepreneurs. They're very likely to be self-employed. And they're into volunteer work too.Photographed by Megan Madden.

If your midheaven is Pisces, your 10th house is ruled by Jupiter. This pairing tends to come with a sense of creativity and a strong intuition — but Pisces is a gentle sign, one that might make a person prefer a behind-the-scenes job. "They are not so much likely to be famous, but well-recognized. They're the writers behind the stars, the publicists behind the famous people, the lyricists of the hit song and the script writers and filmmakers behind the movies," Lettman says. "Their input always creates something big and beautiful, but they're not the face of success."

Stardust says someone with their midheaven in Pisces would also do well in a career in education. Photographed by Megan Madden.
