The horoscope is a map of the heavens at any particular time, usually at the birth of a person. An important aspect to consider when creating charts is the Midheaven. Before computers it was a vital computation in setting up horoscopes. Curiously, many astrologers ignore this point in their interpretations. During over twenty-five years as a professional astrologer, Stephanie Jean Clement, Ph.D., has emphasized that no point of a chart is unimportant. She reveals what she has learned in The Power of the Midheaven. Attention to the Midheaven can revolutionize your understanding of astrology. If you are an astrologer, you need the information in this book to make your readings more complete and to have a full understanding of a chart. The Midheaven indicates what we know about ourselves. The primary form of analysis is to examine the sign the Midheaven is in. For example, people with Leo Midheavens set their goals high and have the staying power to achieve them. They want to rise to the top socially (Jacqueline Kennedy is an example, as is Grace Kelly). They are self-confident, generous, know they are fine leaders, and have organizational capability — but may not be able to admit their own shortcomings. A Leo Midheaven is the master of control and free will, and achieves spiritual enlightenment by knowing that the physical body is necessary. Dr. Clement points out that both Charlie Chaplin and Adolf Hitler have a Leo Midheaven (they were born within days of each other). She gives quotes showing how they used their wills to control people, and both worked hard to eventually reach the top. Obviously, they were quite different people, but the way they achieved their goals was similar. Chaplin actually experienced his first movie-making disappointment with "The Little Dictator," a film about Hitler. This book covers the Midheaven through all the signs. It also includes planets in aspect, transits, and much more. If you are an astrologer, or if you are at all interested in your horoscope, you need this book.
