The Capricorn (10th) House:

Sometimes, the tenth house is known as “The House of Social Status”.

Because this house is ruled by our hard-working, oftentimes, over-achieving Capricorn, the tenth house is where we most likely put in a lot of time and effort.

Just because you work hard, however, doesn’t mean you’ll necessarily get recognized for it if at all! BUT… this house can leave us feeling rather exposed at times as well!


This house is also where you will find your MC or Medium Coeli, which translates to “middle of the sky”.

The MC is a definite set of coordinates or a point in space that helps to measure the dividing line that creates the left and right sides of the chart wheel.

To note, the MC is NOT an actual, physical place in space, (only a mathematical configuration).

The MC can be found at the top or at the highest point of the chart. Therefore, you can look at it as how, what, or who you’re seen as when you’re at your highest point, (hopefully), or when you really begin to gain create a reputation or lack there of.

Your MC could, however, be the reputation you acquire for more unfortunate reasons that someone made public. Even more unfortunate… none of it would necessarily have to be true. Regardless, it is the image the public knows you as at some point.

Why? Because the top half of the wheel is the extroverted part. Even if you’re not an extrovert, this is the small part of you that the world may believe about you for greatness, failure, or even a total lie.

Finding your Sign and Planet(s) in Your Personal Tenth House:

To Find your 10th house ruling sign, go to your chart wheel and find the tenth house labled 10. In this example, this person’s 10th house is ruled by Capricorn, but not everyone’s will be. Mine is in Aries and does not contain any planets.

Once you find the sign of your tenth house, go to see if you have any planets inside of it. This person, for example, has the sun in their 10th house at 10 degrees and 35 seconds.

Below, There are different definitions for Taurus, Libra, and Venus; as well as Virgo, Gemini, and Mercury, because they share a planet, but they are quite different.

If Mercury or Venus fall in your tenth house, your definition is toward the bottom of the page.
