Today we continue our astrological tenth house journey through the zodiac. After dissecting the specifics of the Sagittarius placement, it is time to learn more about Capricorn as a career house. But first, let’s dive into the positive and negative traits of the last Earth sign in astrology

The First Step to Analyzing Your 10th House in Capricorn

The typical Capricorn is probably the most serious, ambitious, and disciplined sign of all! They are reliable, driven, responsible, practical, and trustworthy. “The mountain goat” of the zodiac usually behaves like an adult even from an early age and loosens up throughout the second part of their life (usually after 34).

On the negative side, Capricorns can be too dark, inclined towards depression and self-pity. It is common for them to have difficult childhoods (often having to take care of their siblings or parents) and to grow up faster than their peers. This is the way Saturn teaches and hardens them to be better prepared for adulthood. And the hurdles do pay off since Capricorns usually have it easier in later years.

The Top Medium Coeli in Capricorn Careers for Success

Capricorn in 10th house natal (also called Medium Coeli Capricorn or MC Capricorn for short) is a wonderful placement to have since the Goat is the natural ruler of the tenth house in astrology!

The options for Midheaven in Capricorn careers are endless because the 10th astrological sign gives you success in every vocation you choose. The only requirement is to apply all the strengths of “the mountain goat” – tenacity, ambition, discipline, and the ability to take responsibility for one’s actions. These qualities beat talent every single time!

And since people with Capricorn on their tenth house cusp are naturally driven towards their goals (and Capricorn being a cardinal sign), they will be good at being in a job position where leadership is required – managers, CEOs, entrepreneurs, company owners, etc. It is in their blood to strive to climb the ladder of their career and social status. Just remember to have more fun and do not forget your family and close ones in the process! Balancing your personal and professional lives might be a tough job with this placement!

Now, here’s something else that you should keep in mind – the ruler of the 10th zodiac sign is the slow-moving planet of Saturn, and it is the symbol of time. Saturn is the Roman equivalent of Chronos – the god of time. This means that some of the most typical MC in Capricorn careers would involve this intriguing part of our life – dealing with time. Here are some ideas – archeologist, archivist, antiques dealer (especially if Mercury is involved), renovator, historian, freezer technician (to freeze in time), and even producer of any kinds of preserves.

Other Midheaven in Capricorn careers for you to consider are politics (especially conservative politics and any branch of this profession which involves protecting our traditions), and anything related to actual climbing – a mountaineer or even a thermal insulation specialist who conserves the building by climbing high to isolate it from the environmental forces.

Another important thing to consider regarding the MC is your dad. Our papa and other authority figures are also seen in the Medium Coeli house and that influences our professional development as well. So, what can we say about the Capricorn in 10th house father? This astrological placement often signifies having a serious, strict, and ambitious parent who wanted to prepare you for the challenges in life through discipline and responsibility. It is quite possible that your dad plays a huge role in your life in general, and in choosing your career path in particular. You may have a deep desire to prove yourself to them by going after professional success, achievements, and higher social status.

And that’s not all! Our Ascendant also plays a huge role as well. It is only logical – our characteristics, our personality, and our strengths and skills have to be congruent with the job that we are meant to do. So, the best Capricorn Midheaven Aries rising career would be quite different than if you have Taurus as an Ascendant. This placement (the rising Aries) may help you be much more proactive, adventurous, goal-oriented and entrepreneurial. While having the Bull at the horizon may soften your personality, help you be more down to Earth and conservative, and it may direct your ambition into something related to real estate or agriculture, for example.

And one last thing! There is something extremely important about the tenth zodiac sign in astrology. It is ruled by one peculiar planet which is considered “The Great Malefic” – Saturn. However, I personally do not consider this cosmic body to be as dooming as some astrologers believe. Yes, it does bring some difficulties and restrictions, but it is for a good reason. What Saturn is trying to teach us through these tough challenges are some of the most important lessons in our lives that would ultimately bring us success, achievements, a better social status and reputation. These are qualities like maturity, responsibility, hard work ethic, self-development, discipline, working within certain limits and capabilities, etc. That is why success and our greatest accomplishments are right in the domain of Capricorn – what Saturn does is preparing us for the aftermath of fame and fortune. And I am sure you can think of countless famous and successful people who couldn’t withstand the overload that came after their achievements.

Also, there is another vital thing to remember here, especially with this placement – late blooming. Since Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, and Saturn is a slow moving planet which gives us lots of hard lessons (especially in the first part of our lives), the true career success you desire might come after Saturn’s first return (around 34). So, do not beat yourself up or go into depressive and frustrating states of mind if you are not moving fast enough. Learn to relax and move forward at your own pace!

Oh, and before I close this chapter, I would like to remind you again that the whole chart has to be analyzed in its entirety. This also includes some other important details regarding your MC cusp. Here are a few examples to illustrate what I mean.

The placement of the ruling planet Saturn will also play a huge role in this process. The Midheaven in Capricorn 9th house ruler placement, for instance, will be vastly different than the lord being located in other astrological houses. In this case the ninth house will give you a much more philosophical influence on your career, and your natural ambition may be directed into climbing up the rankings in academics. While having your Midheaven in Capricorn 10th house ruler placement may give you an extra level of drive and an extremely powerful push towards career advancement regardless of the field that you choose to pursue. In that case, it may be the one your father or your granddad had.

Also, the planets located in your tenth house will also play a role in your top career choice. For instance, a 10th house in Capricorn containing Neptune will be quite different than other cosmic bodis in the MH. In this case Neptune can add to your natural drive and direct you into a successful career in television, acting or any other endeavor which entails some form of empathy or idealism. I hope you get the point how important it is to look at your chart from a more holistic viewpoint. And don’t you worry – the planets in the MC house will be the focus of future posts, so make sure you sign up for our newsletter so you don’t miss them out!

The Midheaven in Capricorn Man

Yes, there is a gender division in astrology, and it should be taken into account when we analyze our chart. There are different significators for certain areas of our lives depending on whether you are a man or a woman. This also stems from the established societal norms that influence our behavior. So, here with a MC in Capricorn man we can see the full-fledge ambition that this placement points to. Even though we are moving towards gender equality, there are still glass ceilings and subconscious prejudices against our gender. So, here with this astrological placement we may see much more CEOs and powerful leaders since males are still dominant in the highest job rankings of society.

The MC in Capricorn Woman

Do not be fooled by their gentle appearance! The Midheaven in Capricorn woman is just as ambitious as the male representatives of this astrological placement! However, as I said previously, it would depend on the country, the society, and the upbringing of these ladies whether they would have the opportunity to showcase their natural inner drive for success, like Amelia Earhart, for example (more info about her – down below). So, if your societal norms do not allow you to be just as driven as your male counterparts and colleagues, you may direct your passion for success towards your spouse or your children. Yes, this placement in a female chart may be the epitome of the saying that “behind every successful man there stands a woman” (especially if the ruling planet is in the twelfth house). Even if you are bound to be a stay-at-home mom or a housewife, you will strive to be the best one there is! I am sure of it!

The Typical Capricorn Midheaven Appearance

Our appearance according to astrology is determined by many factors, and our tenth house cusp is not necessarily directly related to this topic. However, all of the houses in our natal chart are the result of our rising sign, and it is one of the most important aspects of how our bodies may look and how we show up into the world. So, here I will say a few words on one of the most common options that may give us some clues on the topic – the Capricorn Midheaven Aries rising placement.

Aries is an extremely active and competitive sign, and it usually gives you quite the athletic body. The typical Ram cannot stand being fixed in one place, and this restlessness keeps their bodies in quite a good shape. Also, keep in mind that this sign is ruled by Mars – the god of war, and all kinds of weaponry is right in the ally of the first astrological sign. In terms of appearance, this may give you a physical feature that is a bit pointy. Sadly, that’s often the nose, but in men this can be the Adam’s apple as well. A strong Aries in the chart may also give your head a shape of a down-pointing triangle (just like the head of a ram). The preferred hairdo may also contribute to this feature – James Dean is a prime example of that.

As far as the dress code goes, I think that the Aries rising will be attracted to wearing all sorts of sports clothing whenever it is possible and when situation allows it. Even females may have a bit of a boyish look with this placement. However, I would like to point out again that the physical appearance is determined by multiple factors, and the Ascendant is just one of them.

10th House Capricorn Celebrities

It could be quite valuable to take a look at some prominent MC in Capricorn celebrities to see how this astrological placement played out in their life. Remember that there are multiple factors that have a say on our best professional development field, and the whole chart has to be analyzed holistically. Nevertheless, I think these names will be extremely illuminating, and we can draw some conclusions as to how the determination and drive of the 10th house in Capricorn helped them achieve massive success and fortune! Let’s begin!

Politicians – Martin Luther King, Jean-Marie Le Pen, Tony Blair, Valérie Pécresse, Christine Lagarde, and more.

As I mentioned previously, conservative politics can be attributed to the 10th sign in astrology, and it is no surprise that we can see quite a few rightists with their MC in the Goat.

Musicians – John Lennon, James Dean, Stevie Nicks, Barbra Streisand, Greta Garbo, Queen Latifah, and more.

Actors – Halle Berry, Penélope Cruz, Dakota Fanning, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Morgan Freeman, Sigourney Weaver, Brie Larson, and more.

Athletes – Conor McGregor, Serena Williams, Shaquille O’Neal, and more.

Other interesting Midheaven in Capricorn celebrities

Kendal Jenner and Gigi Hadid – it is important to note that they both have their Neptune in the 10th house. As I mentioned previously, this is a powerful signification for being successful in front of a camera.

Amelia Earhart

This is an excellent example of how driven people with this astrological placement are! Amelia set the record for the first woman to fly at the altitude of 14,000 feet, a speed record for 100 km, as well as an altitude record for autogyros at 18,415 feet. She is also the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean, and the first female to fly solo from coast to coast without any stops. It is important to note, though, that she had a dominant Gemini in her chart which also largely contributed to her successful aviation career! As I mentioned previously, the dominants will be the focus of future posts, so do not hesitate to sign up for our newsletter so you don’t miss them out!

Jordan Peterson

If you take a quick look at his natal chart you will see that he not only has his tenth house cusp in Capricorn, but he also has Saturn in the house of career and success, as well as another industrious earth sign as the Ascendant – Taurus. So, I am not really surprised that he often states how important it is to hustle, to work hard, and then – to work hard a little more! Deep down he understands that success comes from following the rules of the slow-moving planet of Saturn – discipline, a strong work ethic, ambition, self-development and personal growth, and learning how to take responsibility. This is something anyone with a strong Capricorn in their chart is here to teach us!

Linda Goodman

It is not a coincidence that this is one of the most popular astrologers of all times! Linda Goodman was an exceptional woman with passion and drive to make this ancient knowledge popular in the Western world before it was cool! So, it is no coincidence that she has her MC in Capricorn, but also – she had Jupiter in the 10th house which gave her a massive amount of luck, fame, and prosperity in her career pursuits. Moreover, she had cardinal dominance (being a “double Aries”, as she would call herself, with an Aries Ascendant and her Sun in the sign of the Ram, as well as several more key planets in other cardinal signs) that allowed her to pave the way for the other talented astrologers in the following generations.
