Knowledge is Power! (Recommended Books)
Let’s say you’re looking at your birth chart and you find your Midheaven in Taurus (also called Medium Coeli in Taurus or MC Taurus for short). What does that mean? Let’s take a look!
How to Unlock the Secrets of Your MC in Taurus?
The best career field you can be employed in that holds a great potential for success, fulfillment, better social status, and a better reputation will be determined by the typical characteristics and the inclinations of the second sign in astrology – the Bull.
I know that all zodiac signs are equal – there are no superior or inferior signs, no good or bad ones. But Taurus is one of my personal favorites! A typical Bull is nice and gentle. Actually, I can’t think of a single “calf” in my life being harsh or rude! They are worthy representatives of their ruling planet – Venus!
They love comfort, security, and beauty in all of its forms.
Even in adverse conditions, they always strive to make their surroundings look and feel more pleasant.
They are usually hard-working. Taurus’ element is Earth, which means they are very grounded, realistic and practical. They know that if you want to make something happen, you need to put some effort in it. They move ahead slowly but steadily. Their inner power and strength should not be underestimated – even the shyest of them is more capable than meets the eye.
Of course, every sign has its own soft spots and negative sides. The biggest one for Taurus is their enormous stubbornness! Most of them don’t like change – especially changing themselves. They often find difficult accepting new ideas – not because they can’t, but because they are stubborn! 😀
So, just to recap, here are some of the basic positive/negative traits of the second zodiac sign – persistent, patient, self-indulgent, possessive, materialistic, grounded, and dependable.
The Best Midheaven in Taurus Careers
What would it mean to have the 10th house Taurus aspect? Applying the basic characteristics of the second sign to the field of career and social status, we may come to the following conclusions. People with Tenth House in Taurus tend to focus their efforts in creating material gains.
They usually have stable jobs and always strive to improve their social and financial status. They will work persistently and patiently to achieve their goals.
On the other hand, keep in mind that if Venus is not well placed, or it has many challenging aspects, or if there are negative aspects to the 10th house cusp – laziness, procrastination, and stubbornness may become huge blocks towards your success. (These details will be covered later on in the blog, so stay tuned!) If that’s the case, make sure you find a way to work on that, and try to maintain a healthy balance between work and leisure. Be prepared for the long run – Taurus signifies slow and steady progress – like erecting a building with a solid foundation.
Taurus as a career house might be related to anything connected to Earth – agriculture, gardening, landscaping, building, etc. Since the ruling planet Venus is considered as a significator of business, one extremely suitable 10th house in Taurus career is dealing with real estate in any shape or form – from an investor to becoming a realtor. Some of the most powerful businesspeople with an undeniable knack for accumulating and multiplying their assets (especially physical ones) are born with their Midheaven in Taurus!
Moreover, career fields related to dealing with livestock might also bring you lots of success, satisfaction, and achievements – breeding, herding or selling animals, anything related to the dairy industry, meat production and even becoming a butcher, etc.
The second zodiac sign is also one of the astrological symbols of indulging in our physical senses, so any professional vocation that requires having a delicate taste for the fine things in life is right in the ally of your MC in Taurus, like a wine and/or food connoisseur (or a dealer), or a talented chef.
The ruling planet Venus is also related to all things beautiful and artistic, so it is no wonder that many people with their 10th house in the Bull are extremely successful in areas connected to the aesthetics in any way you can think of – fashion, modeling, design (interior or exterior), art dealing, owning or curating a gallery, painting, etc. Since the Bull is connected to the neck and throat, many folks with their MC in Taurus become extremely successful singers!
Now, since the 10th house in astrology is also usually connected to our fathers, it is always possible for any person to simply continue working and developing in the same career field as their dads. What the Medium Coeli in Taurus can tell us is that your father probably exhibits some of the typical traits of the second zodiac sign – hard-working, practical, patient, artistic, and reliable. On the more negative side he might be too materialistic, stubborn, and even greedy. However, the placement of the ruling planet Venus and its aspects will have to be investigated to get the full picture.
And that’s not all! By this astrological placement we can also get some information on the mother as well, as it is represented by the opposite house – the fourth. So, the MC Taurus IC Scorpio could mean that your mom probably has some of the typical characteristics of the eighth astrological sign, like passionate, resourceful, thorough, intuitive, and even she might be deeply interested in the esoteric knowledge. On the more negative side, some unfavorable traits of the Scorpio are sarcastic, vengeful, secretive, jealous, and arrogant. However, keep in mind that the fourth house will be the focus of future posts where we will go deep into this topic! So, stay tuned!
To close this chapter, I would like to make an important clarification! There are lots of factors that may influence our best choice of professional vocation based on our horoscope. Keep in mind that the whole chart should be thoroughly analyzed to get the full picture. Here are a few examples!
The placement of the ruling planet or luminary (in this case this is Venus).
For instance, the ruler of the Midheaven in Taurus in the 9th house placement could mean that all of these career fields might be also connected to the areas of our life governed by the ninth house in astrology, such as foreign lands and academic education. This could mean a successful international career in art dealing, fashion, real estate, etc. Or becoming a college professor in agriculture, business, or food science, etc. You get the point.
The planets located in your 10th house
If there are any cosmic bodies in your career house, they need to be analyzed as well. These are all kinds of astrological significators and rulers of the other houses in astrology, and they will influence your career potential as well.
For instance, if you have a 10th house Taurus Moon placement, this will give you a strong focus on the areas that this luminary is a significator for – anything related to women, the mother, our emotions, sailing, trade, and changeability. So, this astrological placement might be even more suitable for becoming a women’s fashion designer, a talented marketer, or a dealer of any kind. Nevertheless, the Moon will give you a lot of intuitive powers in your professional development, there might be quite some changes in your career, and your emotions might be deeply influenced by your ambition. NB! The placements of each planet by sign and house will be covered later in the blog, so stay tuned by signing to our newsletter to get all the latest scoop!
The rising sign
The Ascendant is basically half of our personality. So, it is only logical for it to have a deep impact on our most suitable jobs and professional aspirations! Our personality, our positive and negative traits, our talents, skills, and weaknesses have to correspond to the chosen vocation. So, here I will briefly mention one of the most likely possibilities – having your Ascendant in the sign of the Lion. If this is not your rising sign, do not worry – all of them will be thoroughly covered in the blog, so do not hesitate to sign up for our newsletter to be notified when yours would be up and ready!
Now, back to our main topic – the best Taurus Midheaven Leo rising career.
This placement means that you are quite the proud creature that does not shy away from the spotlight. The Lion sign might give you a strong drive for success, fame, and fortune! Your professional achievements and your social status are extremely important for your ego to feel proud and accomplished. The natural aristocratic and bossy behavior of the fifth sign might give you a powerful drive to be at the top of the food chain of your company or even better – to have your own company so that no one would be bossing you around! And finally, I always say – follow your heart and intuition – they know what’s best for you!
The Best 10th House in Taurus Woman Careers
There are often some differences in the charts of males and females, so here I will say a few things on this topic I think are important. Generally speaking, in terms of our career potential, men and women can work and achieve success in any area related to the zodiac sign at the cusp of the 10th house, and according to the placement of the ruler. However, the societal norms, the customs, and how we were raised always play a huge role in our development as individuals, as well as in our choice of career. This is why we still have plenty of jobs dominated by certain genders. Hence, the opportunities for success and achievements for the MC in Taurus woman may be different based on the country you were born in, the social norms, and even the local legislation. So, I would speculate that it is possible for a female with this astrological placement to choose a more Venus-related vocation in the areas of fashion, design, beauty, art, etc. rather than the more male-dominated fields like business and trade.
The Typical Taurus Midheaven Appearance
Now, when it comes to how we look, the 10th house cusp is not generally considered a huge factor according to astrology. The first house cusp is far more likely to give us this important information. However, since all astrological houses derive from the first one, we can guesstimate this placement based on the MC cusp. In this case, the most common variation is Taurus Midheaven Leo rising. So, I will say a few words on what the typical appearance of this placement might be. However, keep in mind that this is just one of the factors! There are a ton more essential aspects to consider when it comes to our looks. Moreover, if this is not your Ascendant sign, do not worry, all of the rising signs will be covered in the blog (plus the other significators for our appearance). So, stay tuned by signing up to our newsletter to be notified when yours will be covered!
So, the Taurus in 10th house for Leo Ascendant appearance…
Let’s begin with the bad news. Leo is considered to be the shortest sign in the zodiac, and if there aren’t any other placements that signify a tall stature, you may be quite short. However, this does not mean that you do not exude confidence and respect! On the contrary, as soon as you enter a room, you may immediately grasp people’s attention! One of the signature features of the Lion is their mane! You may have quite spectacular wavy hair, and often it may have an unusual color that makes people look twice (this may be especially true for the Midheaven in Taurus woman’s appearance)!
Men with this placement may often be bald, but they usually sport quite the handsome facial hair with impeccably groomed beard and moustache! Males may also have very muscular bodies with wide shoulders and large paw-like hands that immediately get people’s respect.
The eyes of these wild cats are also quite interesting. They usually have a very peculiar color and the ability to reflect the light in such a way that looks as if they glow in the dark – just like these of a cat. I have seen this first hand, and it is extremely attention-grabbing!
Finally, one thing is absolutely 100% certain for the people with this astrological placement – no matter what they wear, they will make sure it is impeccable! Not a single stain or a loose thread will be allowed! The MC in Taurus Leo rising folks are extremely proud creatures, and their appearance is a huge part of the reputation they strive to build! If you are accompanying them (especially to any formal occasion), make sure your dress code is also up to their standards!
MC in Taurus Celebrities
Let’s take a quick look at some prominent people with this astrological placement to serve as examples. Sometimes this may be extremely helpful to see how it played out in their life, and ultimately – what is possible. However, I do wish to remind you that the whole chart has to be thoroughly analyzed, and there is also another essential part of the picture – our karma and our Dharma in this area. Also, there are certain career paths that are much more likely to achieve fame as opposed to others. For instance, there are not many people in the agricultural business that become household names. That does not mean that they are not vastly successful and popular in their niche in their local area.
So, take these examples with a grain of salt and keep in mind that everyone is unique.
Actors – Marilyn Monroe, Johnny Depp, Timothée Chalamet, Uma Thurman, Robert Downey Jr., and more.
Let’s not forget that most people with their 10th house in the Bull have a Leo Ascendant. This is a great combination for seeking attention, being comfortable under the spotlight and having the hard-working mindset of the second zodiac sign.
Musicians – Drake, Justin Timberlake, Adam Levine, Tina Turner, Marlene Dietrich, Ella Fitzgerald, and more.
As I mentioned previously, the sign of the Bull is connected to the throat and it is ruled by the planet of beauty, harmony, and art. So, it is no wonder why we can see quite a few immensely talented singers with this placement!
Athletes – Muhammad Ali, Yannick Noah, Alessandro Del Piero, and more.
The strong work ethic of Taurus gives all people with this astrological placement a massive head start in every professional area where tenacity, resilience, and hustling are required. There is one popular quote by Muhammad Ali himself that comes to mind which may perfectly illustrate this placement: “I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion’.”
Other interesting Midheaven in Taurus celebrities:
Love him or hate him, but he is one of the top examples of the immense potential of this placement! He is without a doubt one of the most popular and successful entrepreneurs in the Bull-related area of real estate. Moreover, the leadership potential of this Leo Ascendant is also extremely important in dealing with such massive amounts of assets and multiple business ventures. It is also important to point out that the role of his father in his success is immense. This is where astrology and the family constellations system say the exact same thing – having a good relationship with your father and following in his footsteps in terms of career is an excellent foundation for massive achievements in life. Finally, I remind you that the whole chart has to be kept in mind. In this case here, we have an individual who has the majority of his planets in the North-Eastern part of his horoscope with his Sun in the 10th house and the energetic Mars right next to the Ascendant. (Psst! If you are curious to find the meaning of these placements, such as the Eastern, Western, Northern, and Southern parts of the birth chart, stick around by signing up to our newsletter – we will cover them later on in the blog!) This indicates a powerful pro-active person who is extremely goal-oriented and gets things done. Note: we are not making any assessments whether he is a positive or a negative persona. As I like to say – popularity and notoriety may often go hand in hand! We are simply pointing out the potential in the natal chart. It is up to every individual and their free will whether they like to manifest these aspects in a positive and constructive way or not.
Frida Kahlo is probably one of the best examples of just how immensely talented and artistic the Bull sign can be! And this feels like the tip of the iceberg! In terms of astrology, she has an exceptionally interesting natal chart! What strikes us at a first glance is (just like the case with Donald Trump), here we have most of the planets being placed in the North-Eastern part of the birth chart. Also, the configuration resembles a “bucket” with the Mars/Uranus conjunction in Capricorn in the fifth house of creativity being the “handle”. This may be a powerful indicator for a person who is extremely proactive and ambitious who is able to channel this powerful energy in all kinds of creative endeavors. Plus, we also have the intriguing 10th house Taurus Moon placement I mentioned previously which also adds more fuel into this engine of expressing your powerful emotionality with your career. Here’s an interesting quote by Archana Mehta: “Frida once again evokes such a wide array of emotions such as pain, discomfort, disgust, empathy and sadness.” And finally, I wish to point out one interesting detail about her works – almost all of her paintings are… self-portraits. Well, that’s a Leo rising in its glamour right there!
Anthony Bourdain is a prime example of the other strong side of the second zodiac sign – its sophisticated palate, and the refined taste for exquisite gourmet food and beverages. As I mentioned previously, we certainly can find lots of talented cooks and chefs with this astrological placement, and Mr. Bourdain is without a doubt one of the most popular ones. What is interesting to note is that the ruling planet Venus is located in Gemini – the sign of writing and communication, and it has only positive aspects (which is quite rare). Moreover, his 10th house ruler is located at 28 degrees which is the so called “the household name degree” that may indicate achieving massive fame – in this case, through his career.
Taurus in 10th House in Vedic Astrology
Vedic astrology is an extremely intriguing variation of this ancient knowledge. There are certainly many differences between the Western variation most of us study, and the one mainly practiced in India. In most cases it is the terminology that sets it apart, but not only.
When it comes to the interpretation of this career placement, we may see that it is not that different from what we know in the Western world. These include having the drive, determination, strong work ethic, and the persistence in your chosen career field.
However, what is quite intriguing is that Vedic astrology has a set of recommended cosmic bodies in the 10th house in Taurus which are called “friendly planets” (in this case these are Venus, the Sun, Saturn, and Mercury), and unfavorable ones called “enemy planets” (the Moon, Mars, and Jupiter).
Also, Taurus is one of the zodiac signs in Vedic astrology which has strong Rajasic qualities, like being active and goal-oriented, ambitious to work hard and receive the fruits of your labor, courage, and also being self-centered and anxious. These traits give people with their MC in Taurus a powerful desire to hustle hard and then enjoy the luxurious and high-class stuff they crave for!

- The Astrology of Success: A Guide to Illuminate Your Inborn Gifts for Achieving Career Success and Life Fulfillment
Your 10th house in Taurus placement is just the beginning of your journey to find what you came here on Earth to do and accomplish! And as I always like to say – the key is the whole chart! That is why I highly recommend you grab this best-selling book by one of my most favorite astrologers of all time – Jan Spiller! This must-read will give you a ton of vital information for you to consider when making this important move in your life – choosing a life-long and fulfilling career that would give you all the success, the achievements, and the sense of meaning you strive for! This indispensable book will show you all the nitty gritty details of your tenth house – the meaning of the signs at the cusp of the MC, the significance of the planets and luminaries located in your Medium Coeli, the placement of the 10th house lord, the Lunar Nodes in your career house (is your career a huge part of your karmic debt?). All of this precious data will help you see the full picture so that you can navigate thought this challenge armed with the right knowledge and your powerful intuition!
Speaking of the Lunar nodes, we cannot skip this wonderful masterpiece by the same author! The sole purpose of this book is to get you acquainted with one of the most mystical and intriguing branches of this ancient system – Karmic Astrology! The interpretation of these highly sensitive points in our charts are often regarded as indicators of past lives, the karmic debt we accumulated, and the life lessons we are bound to learn in this current incarnation. And this definitely includes our career. Actually, in Vedic astrology the 10th house is also considered the house of karma which is another important reminder that the key for our professional development and unlocking the potential for success lies within following our soul’s purpose! This is especially true if you have your North Lunar node (the Head of the Dragon) or your South Lunar Node (the Tail of the Dragon) in your tenth or sixth house! Then this book is definitely a must-read!
When I say “Knowledge is power!” I really mean it! The more we understand who we are, what we came here to do, and what we are good at, the better chances we have for success! That is why I think astrology is a great tool for self-discovery and self-development! However, as you may have learned in this article, the sign at the cusp of the 10th house is just the tip of the iceberg! There are tons of other important details to consider when choosing a suitable career that would give you that feeling of accomplishment and purpose! That is why I always remind people to keep the whole chart at the back of their mind, and logically, you need to know what the whole chart says about your potential, right? So, this is one of the best book series on learning the ins and outs of this ancient system that would be extremely illuminating! The first three volumes are the essential pieces you need to start interpreting all the vital parts of your horoscope! Book 1 will give you the absolute indispensable foundations! Without them the whole construction process of chart analysis would simply collapse! Book 2 will get you deeper into this process, and you will have the chance to learn much more about your MC in Taurus placement! Book 3 is the cherry on top that would make the whole difference, but the main part of it is the meaning of the placements of all house rulers in the other houses in your birth chart. As you saw previously in this article, this alone may change the whole picture!
In addition to the amazing masterpiece “Astrology of Success” I would also recommend “Vocation” by Brian Clark for one main reason – it goes above and beyond to show the complexity of the topic! As I always like to re-iterate – we need to always keep the whole picture in mind instead of looking at just one astrological house. That is what Brian Clark managed to do to a great extent – going beyond your tenth house! Here’s a simple example to illustrate what I mean. Do you want a career that pays the bills or one just for the sake of the reputation and accomplishments? Because in terms of astrology, our ability to make money and accumulate assets through our own efforts can be analyzed in the second house instead of the 10th. Here’s another example. How do you know whether you may be more inclined to manifest your Taurus MC as a painter working quietly in seclusion or as a proactive and outgoing goal-getting real estate businessperson? Well, your personality will play a huge role in this process. That is why any chart analysis starts with the foundations – the rising sign, the placements of the personal planets, etc. Because our best career field will have to be in accordance with our personality traits, our strengths and weaknesses, and our skills and talents. This is what the author managed to do in this awesome book – to give us the bigger picture!
The more you understand the typical traits and inclinations of the second zodiac sign, the better understanding you will have of the potential of this astrological placement. Here in this article I did my best to outline some of the typical archetypal traits of the Bull, but there is so much more to learn than this! That is why I would encourage you to grab this book and dive deeper into the world of the Taurus sign! Another great option is “Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs” where you can get an even better and more detailed description of this hard-working earthy sign. However, what I personally like about “Taurus: Harness the Power of the Zodiac” is that there is a specific section on the best jobs suitable for the Bull people. These may serve you as excellent career ideas you may want to consider. Follow your intuition, and if you get a powerful aha-moment going through these suggestions, then these might be what you are looking for! Moreover, the book has some intriguing and practical knowledge on one of the most important periods of our adult life, especially career-wise – the Saturn return. More about that – in the next book suggestion!
Since you are here I am 100% sure you are interested in the topic of choosing a career and achieving success using the powerful ancient tool of astrology! Well, there is something vital about this process that we missed in this article – the Saturn return period (also known as Saturn Revolution). This is one of the most essential times in our lives when we are at a sort of a crossroad in the most important areas of our lives, especially our career and professional development. This is considered to be a quite challenging chapter of our lives but it can also be extremely rewarding. It usually provides a ton of opportunities to change our jobs into different fields that are more congruent with our goals, values, and our personality. So, it is extremely important to be mindful during these times to take the full benefit of the Saturn Return since it happens roughly every 29-30 years. Yeah, we usually have 2 of those in our whole life! If you are somewhere near these pivotal moments or you have a close person going through these challenging times, do not hesitate to grab this volume, and implement the practices recommended in the book – these might be completely life-changing!
Aaaand finally, a book that is more on the woo-woo side of astrology I actually adore! I think it could be immensely beneficial in this process of choosing a fulfilling life-long career to give you the ultimate feeling of purpose, meaning, success, and financial comfort! “New Moon Astrology” is a wonderful combination of Transitology (the branch of astrology which deals with how the movement of the cosmic bodies in the Solar system affects our lives on a daily basis) and the law of attraction. This is something our ancestors actually knew about and implemented in their sacred rituals around pivotal dates and times in the calendar year, such as the summer and winter solstices, the lunar phases, etc. And now we have the opportunity to use these powerful tools to become much more intentional about what seeds we plant in our lives. I will give you a hint – each zodiac sign brings forth certain kind of energy we can utilize to set the universal forces in motion for a much easier and better fulfillment of certain goals and wishes. For example, a New Moon in Virgo can be the best time to make an intention to find a better day-to-day job, as well as to improve your habits around your physical wellbeing. And lastly, there is one really pleasant surprise in the book I am sure you are going to love – there is a certain period of time every year when dreams come true much more easily than you think! It is something unique about everyone, and you have to find it by yourself in your own natal chart! Happy reading and successful manifesting!
Wish you luck and success!
