The Midpoint Weighting Analysis Report
by Michael Munkasey
September 18, 1967
This is a report about you and your potentials as shown through your personal astrological signature or chart. The date, time, and place you were born, or when an event was initiated, called the astrological signature, sets a unique pattern of energy into time and space. There is potential within this pattern, and when that potential is recognized, explained, and then used well, life flows much easier. It is important to recognize your inherent strengths and then work to maximize these in whatever ways you choose to live your life. Doing this will make you much happier than taking weak energies and trying to strengthen those.
You are unique as an individual. Capitalize on that uniqueness in ways which can bring fulfillment and happiness into your life.
This report should accomplish two things for you. First, it identifies your inherent astrological strengths as shown by the birth or event data provided; and next it explains the energy patterns associated with those strengths, while offering you guidelines and commentary on how to use those well.
Time has qualities to it, and each moment of time is unique from all others. Your astrological signature in time carries such uniqueness. This uniqueness is shown through how the planets and the personal sensitive points in a chart interact. What makes this report unique is that the chart placements are not considered one-on-one, but the geometric layout of the planet and point patterns are examined for places of power and places of weakness. Once assessed, these are then sorted from strong to weak and commentary on the top such strong interactions are given in the conversational paragraphs provided.
The chart evaluation is done through a technique I pioneered called the “Midpoint Weighting Analysis”, or MWA. Midpoints are the combination of two planets or points, and they lie on an axis across the chart, not as a single point in space. Midpoints are the middle point between pairings. The MWA is both a technique and a computer program. The technique takes the geometric pattern within a chart and analyzes this for strength and weakness of qualities. The computer program then ranks these strengths and weaknesses. By identifying and explaining the stronger midpoints, much about life can be clarified.
Why midpoints and not planets in signs or houses?
Interpretations of planets in signs or houses remains fairly one-dimensional. Interpretations of midpoints are multi-dimensional. Often a strong midpoint can be located into what appears to be an empty place in a chart. This is not something that is visual — it is a part of an energy pattern. Thus, by using midpoints, and midpoint interpretations, you can get a clearer picture of your energy patterns and intended thrusts in life.
There are many reasons as to why a midpoint can be strong or weak. You may have chosen your astrological signature because it represented a pattern of familiarity. Or, you may have chosen your astrological signature because it promised certain new situations, or having to revisit older unresolved situations. Or, you may simply have chosen the first available opportunity for an energy pattern without even realizing that you had choices, and thus wound up with a set of energies which are not so familiar or comfortable. Whatever your choices or reasonings, you are living in a fixed astrological energy pattern. Now it is your destiny, your obligation to learn how to use these energy patterns wisely.
There is no significance to the sequential order of these interpretations. All are equally important. They represent your energy patterns. Read, ponder on them, and then put these to use in your life in the best ways you are able to do.
Enjoy this personalized report. Many years of study and thought has gone into its preparation. Use the information provided to enrich your life.

Your Midpoint Interpretations
Given below is a more detailed interpretation of each of the midpoints listed above. According to the Midpoint Weighting Analysis, the themes, issues, personality characteristics, and likely behaviors described are very strong and important for you.
The Saturn/Uranus Midpoint strong by MWA:
Tension arising between maintaining traditional methods or status quo and introducing change or innovative techniques begins here. These two seemingly different energies actually combine well to generate inner drives to push through what many would consider insurmountable barriers. Important here is the internal recognition of unacceptable situations and circumstances, and then the consistent, steady pushes to effect change. This is not to say that such changes are for the overall good, because they may be self-centered, but usually not. It is up to the individual to look at their purposes to determine whether such change is self-serving, or serving for society and mankind. This can be easily done, but is not so easily admitted, especially once events have been put into motion.
There generally is an open acceptance of new ideas, especially those embracing new technologies, thought or inventions. There should be a great interest in how objects work, what makes things tick, and when putting things back together what happens if changes or alterations are introduced. Such experimentation can occupy much time and effort, but in the end what you learn from the variations can be considered well worth the overall effort. There usually is an innate interest in computations, mathematics, harmony, etc., which are used to help explain how and why things work. These studies can lead to interesting breakthroughs, even if the insights gained only affect a few people. Some of the greatest breakthroughs affecting the overall quality of life for many people have been made with these energies. Long, persistent, and arduous efforts can finally produce objects and inventions which many thought impossible. This combination too can be very good at helping make quick repairs to systems or methods which have broken down or which are not functioning as they should. In emergency situations when something “has” to be done, it is this combination of energies which you would want present.
There usually is little letup in the need to effect change, but only when such change is seen to make existing processes or situations better. Some would call this tinkering, but such alterations can have profound social and economic effects. A little change here can make a tremendous difference elsewhere. The statement that “a butterfly flaps its wings in Tokyo, and the Stock Market reacts in New York” is typical of the idea that small changes can affect a larger whole. This interconnectedness of all living things, and the effect of all actions and thoughts on the collective is quite demonstrative of this combination of energies. Change is inevitable, and change is ongoing. It is in how you react to any change which is important. With this combination strong this is where the pressure to effect change, betterment, breakthrough, enhancement, alteration, etc., begins. The idea generated here is to move society, life, along, and not to get stuck in familiar ruts. Perhaps such “shakeups” involve the use of non-traditional ideas, like astrology, or allied new-age practices. If these help with insight to move things, people, and events forward, then this can be very good.

The Sun/Saturn Midpoint strong by MWA:
These energies may seem to work counter to each other, but combine well and can enhance the overall quality of life when used wisely. They highlight the need for any dedication brought to patiently and thoroughly completing all endeavors. Persisting and following through to completion becomes very important. Not only achieving completion, but the attention and thoroughness given to each task is what can motivate others to appreciate the dedication and care shown. Perhaps doing the task took longer than expected, or cost more, but the finished product will probably be such that it will endure through time and stand on its own as a model of very good work. Seeing that all things are done correctly and thoroughly becomes important.
Often for efforts undertaken there will be an assumption that the outcome has to be practical. There has to be not only completion, but also a utility, a benefit. Learning patience when you want to rush through, or when you are pushed by others, is part of this combination’s lesson. Others may want “the quick and dirty” but you may not be satisfied until the “quick and dirty” is done correctly and also has some practical value. This is not the salesperson’s emphasis, this is the producer’s emphasis. There should always be pride taken in product. It becomes important to produce not only what is originally asked for, but perhaps going a step or two beyond that. Personal pride will often outshine the bare minimum requested. Expect better, produce more — that is one part of this combination.
There can probably be many barriers and obstacles to overcome in life. Moving past obstacles or over barriers is part of the lesson here. These probably have been thrown in your way to teach you some lesson about persistence and quality. It is through learning how to overcome and/or work through these barriers or obstacles that you learn how to live in peace with this combination. Sometimes you just have to persist through difficulties, working each out one by one to achieve your intended goal. It is in the working through that you learn and grow as a person. Keep in mind that it is not always the splashy or showy which wins, but that which produces utility.
Some lessons learned in life may turn out to be expensive. You may start out with a goal or idea, and work on it for some time, only to eventually learn that your initial assumptions were wrong and you need to start over. This is simply one lesson along the way. It is not the fact that you were wrong, but that you were able to admit a mistake and then work to correct that. Eventually you should succeed, but however that success comes you probably will not be satisfied until the effort has brought a lesson well learned, at least internally. Even through setbacks you probably will remain happy when you can see that one or two obstacles will not deter you from achieving overall success. This combination does not guarantee satisfaction or success — it asks for persistence and stability.

The Moon/Ascendant Midpoint strong by MWA:
You should have sensitivity to any circumstances happening around you, often receiving impressions from more than just the five physical senses. These real and unreal impressions help you relate to people and situations in a deep and profound way, and can be helpful when you need to respond quickly to circumstances. You would be quick to pick up on people’s needs and concerns, showing sympathy and understanding of their situation and condition. While this can be good, the down side to this is becoming a sponge for other people’s feelings and needs. Thus be aware of becoming too sensitive and too helpful when you inwardly feel such pulls, or are asked to assist. When this happens your responses should slow while you make an assessment as to whether such help is for good, or simply to relieve others of burdens they need to directly address and face up to.
You probably have a need to be protective of your personal spaces and privacy. People who impose on you and invade your personal realms can cause panic in one way, and rage in another. You can present a wishy-washy approach to how you let others take advantage of you, and you need to be aware of letting others take advantage of your generosity and openness. Your sensitivity to the needs of those around you is such that you can easily open your wallet and emotions to their conditions, even before rational thought kicks in to allow some personal distancing from what is happening.
You can have a strong inner focus on home, family, family needs, and family history. You may become interested in genealogy, historical events, and the evolution of social patterns. This could be a singular interest, or it may bring professional opportunities. Keeping in touch with family members, looking after the welfare of parents, especially mother, following along with mother’s interests, etc., can become important.
Your concentration on what happens around you probably comes and goes. There can be times when you are focused, and then can be times when your attention wanes and drifts. This inconsistency can lead to accidents if you are not attentive during times when many activities are happening around you, such as when driving a vehicle. Be aware of becoming too distracted by music, looking where you shouldn’t, etc., during such times.
You can have a strong sense of rhythm and a feel for music which can lead you to become proficient with a musical instrument. You probably have a love of music, and like to have such playing in your environment. Your need for romance, depth of feeling about events and people can play out through musical activities. You probably would enjoy concerts, plays, and lectures, as learning from people while watching them perform would interest you. Observing people and their responses can become important.
You can show a hesitation when responding to others, which they may take as a weakness. If they comment on this, tell them that you are simply trying to ensure that your emotional responses are deep and heartfelt.

The Mercury/Pluto Midpoint strong by MWA:
There probably is little which goes through the mind which does not have some basis in deep and penetrating thinking. Looking to the reasons behind why things are, or what has happened can occupy much time and inner debate. Somehow some inner sense grasps that the obvious reasons being shown or presented are not necessarily the only reasons why a situation is unfolding or has happened. Thus there can be this need to look deeper at the implications of what is going on, and what any consequences can be. There can be many twists and turns with thoughts along the way, considering first one possibility, and then another possibility, until at least one scenario, possibly more, emerges within the mind as being the answer about what happened and why. This is not so much a back and forth without resolution as it is a determination to get to the bottom of a potential mystery. And, there should be much fascination with the mysterious and possibly nefarious in life.
Sometimes there is a start in life with an open mind and perhaps even thoughts that people generally have good intentions. But circumstances and events can change that outlook, and as life progresses looking to alternate explanations about what has happened, or is happening, becomes more the norm. Somehow accepting pat answers, those which are given off without any depth or thought, is not enough. There should be a deeper meaning behind symbols, events, or people’s motives; and getting to the bottom of these can occupy much time and energy. There can be an associations of symbols to explanations of reality, and thus noticing subtle clues within nature or people’s expressions may become an occupying interest. Perhaps even, the study of some symbolic art form, music, painting, dreams, etc., becomes an active part of how you view and see life unfolding.
There can be an interest in death, and occult processes. This can be especially true if in early life such ideas were not repressed. Then memories and current events tend to evoke inner thinking about the inter-relatedness of events and thoughts, and how these are combined within self to create the reality which becomes your world. Where thoughts of discussions on death or occult processes were repressed in early life, then needs to eventually investigate such ideas should come on later in life, but whenever they come, they will open new doors to possibilities about unseen or hidden life activities, the death process, or what happens after death.
Usually with this combination active there are interests in medicine, psychology, mathematics, logic, and the processes of communication — both at verbal and non-verbal levels. These interests may come out as hobbies, or they may come out as your life-long profession. Even if your profession is more menial, such thoughts, and the study of such subjects for better understood should become deep interests. Formal education is such areas may also be sought and undertaken. Whether the education is formal, self-taught, or informal, such interests can run deep, and needs to pursue them strong.

The Neptune/Ascendant Midpoint strong by MWA:
Whether you realize it or not, you tend to color reality by the thoughts and/or prejudices of what you want reality to look like and/or affect you. You have good powers of visualization, and derive much inspiration from people and events as they happen. You are quite intuitive and can read people’s motives, even when what they are saying or doing is counter to what they are projecting. You need to realize that your view of reality can run quite counter to people whose view is more stark and realistic. You tend to feel reality, while other people tend to see reality. Neither is a right or wrong, as both can be useful — but it is not worth arguing over who is correct or wrong. A person’s view is simply that person’s view.
The good side to this is that you become easily aware of other’s motives and intentions. You can see and feel things others can not, like visions and apparitions. A down side is that you can become quite sensitive to energies and motivations, and these may sometimes overwhelm your inner sensory processing mechanisms. This hyper-sensitivity to people and the environment, if not handled well can lead to bodily malfunctions through chemical imbalances. It is important for you to: (a) be aware of this sensitivity to people and your environment; (b) not allow yourself to be so overwhelmed with impressions that you become non-functional; (c) realize you need to include proper nutrition and exercise to keep your body in balance; and (d) remove yourself quickly from circumstances causing you internal upsets.
You have a mystical side to your personality, and people see you as either a visionary or a mental case. To you, reality is all one thing, but people may make judgments which bring you upsets. Should this happen then you need to learn to step aside from their judgments and calmly and as rationally as possible look at what they are saying and then determine whether or not you want to accept their view, as opposed to your view. When you let other people rule your life by imposing their impressions of how you should think and live, then you open yourself to difficulties in seeing who you are, should be, and where your life should be progressing. Thus one of the important lessons you should learn is how to live comfortably with yourself and others when you see reality differently.
Because you are so intuitive this does not mean that your impressions are always correct. It is just as easy for you to make misjudgments as it is for other people. You have a gift of mind, and like any other talent or gift you need to learn how to use it, what the boundaries are on its usage, and when not to use it. This, then is an important lesson for you. Your great gift needs to be nurtured, understood, and used. It is unwise for you to trust it implicitly without understanding its limitations and applications.

The Node/Ascendant Midpoint strong by MWA:
This combination calls for the cultivation of attitudes and expressions when meeting and interacting with others on an on-going basis. Learning to become aware of impressions you make, observing how others affect you, and learning how to set the right tone and circumstances for interacting with others is important. Everyone needs people and people interactions. But, how do you teach yourself, or how do you learn to interact in socially acceptable ways with others? This combination emphasizes such learning. Your daily routines and habits and the effect these have on others, as well as the effect you have on others, is emphasized here.
You may feel an emotional tug or pull of some indefinable sort between you and another or others. This pull probably arises from past situations or encounters. In any case, how you react to this, and what you choose to make of this with the other person or persons, is part of the learning process associated with this combination. Like minded friends, especially those who in some way seem to offer help or comradeship, at least on subconscious levels, can help you along the paths of life. It is in learning how to recognize, utilize, and then capitalize on such opportunities that is addressed here.
Your appearance and mannerisms when meeting and greeting others is very important. They way you dress, the openness of your greetings, the choice of words, even the tone of speech used, all have effects on others. This combination deals with the development of such personal and social skills, and can be quite good when used well for putting others at ease about you and your intentions. You may embark on a life-long professional quest about the interactions of people amongst people. You may just be contented to keep such observations within self, learning what you can, as well as increasing your social and observational skills about people as you mature. What ever way you choose to go, when this combination is strong the need for interacting with others, as well as the need to present proper and correct social interfaces, is usually quite strong.
Sometimes chance encounters bring the right people into your life. You may set an intention to locate a person(s) with just the right set of personality or professional skills. When you do, having this combination activated can be quite helpful for actualizing the thought put in motion earlier. The conclusion of how meetings or encounters turn out is generally a reflection on the social skills you develop when interacting with people, and it is in the honing and development of such social skills that these energies lie.
Sometimes there are barriers to moving forward in life, and often these can be due to the reluctance of others to accept your directions or requests for assistance. Sometimes such barriers are a bureaucratic posture, but they can also arise from the way you approach others, as well as your mannerisms. Thus, learning about how you affect others, and then developing social skills is an important skill to be learned here.

The Uranus/Neptune Midpoint strong by MWA:
You may find yourself thrust into correcting circumstances which require a total revision and new direction. You may have been selected or asked to take on a task of either small or great proportions which requires new insight and approaches to rooting out that which no longer serves. You may see the weakness, and also see how to incite the spark which then calls for you to remedy the situation in innovative ways. Generally, this will not be met well by established forces and turmoil can result, but in the end if your vision and dream is clear you should succeed. Taking on established and entrenched ideas is never easy, but this combination’s energies can help in that regard.
Your religious views may vary from the traditional to the unorthodox. Along paths of life you will probably need help from higher sources with carrying out your visions, but you may also be abandoned by these sources while you fight on to complete your goals. In any event, a turn-around in religious thinking can happen in your life, and perhaps not in such easy or smooth ways. You probably will be called upon to examine your ideas about God and Church and when this examination is done and changes are made, then you can proceed with fulfilling your dreams and ambitions.
You may be hampered by unreliable friends, or disturbing dreams or visions, to make promises or commitments you may not be able to fulfill. If you rely on insufficient information or untrustworthy friends, which you can have a tendency to do, then your lack of foresight can cause difficulties. You have good intuition, but it may fail you in times of need. Just because you have inspiration and dreams, and can inspire others to support your dreams and visions, this does not mean that these intentions carry an overall good for your adherents. When deceits and unreliability are discovered you can be ruthless in your correction or elimination of the sources which did not meet expectations. Friends and advice can only go so far without requiring some validity.
This combination brings an interest in the occult and astrological practices. You may study and apply these from student to professional levels, or you may rely on qualified others to give you advice using astrology or psychic readings. Inwardly you should have a feeling for nonphysical energies and their potential, but the messages received through such sources may be ambiguous or not always prove helpful. Thus if there is uncertainty, or if there are questions about the reliability of this information, then use more conventional means to back up decisions. In astrology you will probably prefer an esoteric approach or the use of mythology more than a scientific or rational approach.
One trait you need to develop is to discern when advice given you is correct, and when it can be self-serving to others. Be aware that you may ally yourself with unreliable friends, or people who will expect more from you than you can deliver, even after assurances from self and others.

The Venus/Mars Midpoint strong by MWA:
The two planetary male and female social indicators combine to offer a wide range of male and female, man and woman, or boy and girl, interaction opportunities. Gentle Venus combines with aggressive Mars; or, an impulsive, insistent Mars combines with the jealous, raging Venus. Any combination of these possibilities comes with this combination strong. This combination adds to the appreciation others feel toward the way you do your work or present yourself. There probably will be an inherent like for your ideas and activities. There is a sexual energy permeating your actions which others pick up on and feel an attraction and appreciation toward.
You probably have an innate way of presenting your ideas to others such that they are accepted with enthusiasm and respect. The more that you achieve personal respect, the more that people tend to admire you. Through hard work on your part, even taking on potentially dangerous assignments, others come to cherish and admire the efforts put forth. Part of this admiration comes back to you in financial remuneration, but your expenses may often offset profits, so keeping a close check on the financial status is important.
Friends in the music or arts business should meet well with friends in athletics or the military. All sides, art and athletics, etc., should bring opportunities your way to make significant impacts in life. Athletic aggressiveness and athleticism can blend well with the artistry and beauty available. Setting up and fostering entertainment which includes athletics within artistry, or artistry within athletics should prove successful.
Through these two planets you should learn to combine love and beauty with action and toughness. Difficulties encountered should somehow be lessened or handled with ease, while comfort zones or times to relax may be somewhat rough and primitive, or interfered with. There may be periods of great activity, and then periods of rest broken by noise and abrupt changes of plans. It is always good to leave flexibility within your schedule for unexpected circumstances, as these can happen often with this combination.
You may find yourself at the center of controversies among people of the same sex: women fighting with or jealous of the privileges or opportunities given to other women; men arguing with other men over differences of approach, who will be paid more attention, or given more time to show off. These come with the territory, and it is how you learn to handle and mediate in these disputes that you can eventually earn the overall esteem and gratification of those who are observing what is happening. In general you should take satisfaction in resolving such issues, as it is more the activity, as opposed to the lack of activity, which keeps you interested in life.
By using these energies wisely people will come to admire the innate talents you have for bringing difficult and complex operations off with what appears to be ease and naturalness. You probably have a personal style which many others admire. You may achieve much fame for your reputation in handling difficult situations with grace and respect.

The Mars/Neptune Midpoint strong by MWA:
This combination helps you see and envision a future course of action and then move boldly along to effect this purpose. Your approaches to doing this may be so subtle that others probably will not be aware that you are even moving along in a determined direction. Yet, you are able to see, dream and follow an inner guidance. Your great sense of inner guidance or knowing helps you understand that the plans and courses being followed are important for reasons known mostly to you. This guidance helps you grow, become, and complete the person you inwardly want to be. Despite criticism, despite setbacks, despite others arguing against you, you can continue and complete.
There may be troubling complications caused by accidents, diseases, and/or internal or external battles. These may bring serious harm to the physical body, but rarely serious enough to deter you from bringing the visions you have to fulfillment. You will probably continue to struggle on despite any illness or handicap encountered.
Another lesson here is learning about dissolving anger which has accumulated through past experiences. Anger can be difficult to overcome, especially if it is emotionally based and deep seated. Yet through the energy of this combination you are able, and in fact should, look at any deep seated anger, imposed anger, or irritations, and see a more constructive way of working these through self so that overall they do not cause inner psychological blockages which impede spiritual growth or earthly progress.
Also here is energy to propel your spiritual growth, and often helping this is an enhanced psychic ability and insight. This ability adds awareness about life and the people around in ways which others can not comprehend. You may have active dreams, some of them troubling, you may hear voices, or you may just have a firm inner sense of which is the best course of action to effect movement and progress. Whatever form the ethereally-based information takes, it is there for you to use, and it is also up to you to recognize what it is, how it works, and how best to use it for furthering personal growth.
This combination helps make you a good bluffer, but then you may not always see who is a friend and who is a foe. You are able to put up a good front, even when you are unsure, or perhaps at a physical low point, to carry through with your actions. You may lose a struggle, but probably will win the battle. Your innate ability to bring the best out in people who are there to help you is a great asset. You do this by listening to your guidance, and then helping them make the decisions you had envisioned prior for them to make.
Self destruction through drugs or detrimental social actions is possible. The choice is always yours as to how you wish to implement the energies which are made available to you. Be aware that not every person around you will be helpful or have your best interests in mind.

The Sun/Neptune Midpoint strong by MWA:
Powerful inner mental imagery helps formulate dreams, dreams which can become reality if you have the persistence to see them through. One of the primary combinations for a visionary person, this combination can bring tremendous insight into the various possibilities along life’s path. The formation of ideas, and the bringing of dreams to reality are two different qualities. You probably have tremendous insight into possibilities, but at the same time can have difficulty focusing on everyday tasks or responsibilities. There can be areas of personal existence which go completely ignored; perhaps totally impractical ways of living — yet behind this personal untidiness can lie the most beautiful dreams and possibilities.
There probably is a strong urge to help those more unfortunate, from people to animals to causes. It can become quite easy for you to become involved with people or situations which have lofty ideals and goals, but are not always able to produce practical or workable results. This may not matter to you, and the possibilities and potentials within the dreams you are pursuing can lead you on for years and years through wonderful and enthusiastic pursuits of some vague, yet possible glory.
This combination can bring situations and inner assessments which make it quite easy for you to mislead yourself, and if your powers of persuasion are strong enough, then others too. Like the Pied Piper, you have inner qualities which others see and hear, and then are drawn to follow along with you as you pursue these possible and impossible dreams. The chasing of rainbows can be more exciting than the capture of any prize at their end. Yet it is this chase, the romantic pursuit of imaginative figments, which generally occupies central stages in life. Such imaginative power can lead to outlets involving the playing or creation of music or art, writing, religious inspiration, seeking lost treasure, adventures in exotic lands looking for the sources behind legends, etc. The possibilities are endless.
Life may consist of a series of back and forth efforts. Energy in one direction can be expended only to find that something blocks the way. No problem, there are other inspirations to pursue. Perhaps a relaxing time with friends, and discussions about possibilities. Perhaps the pursuit of the promise of places with Shangri-la potentials. Perhaps the founding of communities which promise some betterment for self or mankind. Perhaps the undertaking of religious or magical exercises to expand consciousness and awareness. Perhaps developing inspirational talks, books, etc. Anything which can bring your inner inspirations into a reality for others to try, use and even personally grow from. Yours is the task to present dreams and visions to others so that their environments and lives can be enriched.
There can be a powerful pull to using drugs to heighten inner senses. While it is not always necessary to use drugs, and self-development can work around those, sometimes drugs can short-cut personal development practices which can take years. If you use drugs to help escape the realities of life, then you should also make yourself aware of their potential downsides.

The Venus/Pluto Midpoint strong by MWA:
This combination highlights your need for personal privacy about your love or fiscal affairs. There can be strong, even expensive, measures taken to ensure that your privacy is maintained, and that your private life is protected. While there may be some outward shows intended to impress others with your status or position, the inward definition of what you are and how you live as a private person usually remains protected — even if this takes some extra-ordinary means or expense. This need for privacy and protection can become obsessive, but is certainly well deserved. The public face generally presented can mask a person who is quite different in private and removed situations where they feel they no longer have to hide who they are or can be. This is not necessarily imply a “Jekyll and Hyde” personality, but in some cases such extremes of love vs. monstrosity can result.
There should be an inner intensity about music, art, acting or performance which drives you to seek the ultimate in personal endeavors. This may come about in day-to-day interactions, or it may be used in professional situations as in film or on stage. The need for ensuring that what happens is the best which can be produced may take extreme measures. There may even be strong outbursts directed toward those whose performance seems to be lacking in some way. What can or will be tolerated for a lesser performance is probably set high, and many involved may not be able to measure up. Thus there can be much rejection, creation of ill-will, or even outright hostility by those who are being thrust aside. This can lead to jealousy and petty retaliations which overall may be harmful to continuing processes. Learning to live through such for the sake of perfection is a trait which needs to be learned. The final results are the proof of strong demands made along the way as situations or enactments are produced.
There should be a fascination with the role of life and the effects of death. This can lead to many investigations of purposes to life, the lessons we each need to learn, accounting for our individual contributions to family, self, profession and humanity, or simply new goals for continuing professional competency. The role of occult ideas such as life-after-death, reincarnation, astral entities, extra-terrestrial influences, etc., should hold a fascination for those with these energies strong. Such interests can bring many interesting twists and turns to your life as such education continues.
An important consideration should be that you can not rest on your laurels. That is, what is past is done, but what remains for the future mostly needs to exceed the effects and efforts put forth in the past. Thus, life can become a series of imposed personal tests to ensure that what is produced soon is better than what came about in the past. The lowering of personal values rarely continues with this combination, but it can. However when it does there usually are further attempts at achieving increased perfection and success.

The Uranus/Midheaven Midpoint strong by MWA:
As you proceed through life you may find that not all situations are laid out in well defined patterns. You can find yourself in many situations where plans you thought were satisfactory have to be modified to fit new circumstances. This may come from a marriage, a friendship or a job which starts out well but then ends abruptly for reasons beyond your control. The lesson here is one of being able to adjust to life’s uncertainties and then still make something positive out of the situation. You need to learn to focus on proceeding through such disruptions with personal dignity and professional pride. When accomplishment is not what you had envisioned, or is thwarted for some reason, then finding and developing alternative paths and new directions is called for. With this combination strong how you handle such challenges can become defining moments of life.
Much time and effort may be spent adjusting to the changes thrown at you by life. This should help you develop a flexible psychological and mental approach to situations. Life can disrupt situations, but how you handle and grow through these is what will make you more noticed by others and feeling fulfilled inside. Learning to not dwell on the obstacles, but concentrating more on how to work around such to personal advantage is what is needed. Revising or altering the purposes which were set up, perhaps early in life for you, by family or others can become necessary. As you make these alterations you grow as a person in intellectual and psychological ways, and it is this personal growth which is a very important consideration.
As you take a personal inventory of your strengths and weakness, you may discovery that you have unusual and/or extraordinary skills. These may lie in the area of mechanical or electrical intuitive understandings, or they may lie in understanding people and their motivations using astrology. The social interactions amongst people, the gadgets which people use, promises from new technological breakthroughs, or simply offbeat or unintended uses of existing products should all interest you. You can take these interests and develop new and interesting ways to proceed through life with these concerns. Having the interest is one thing, taking the time to develop and hone skills to bring recognition and expertise is another. You may find that you are quite skillful using tools, and inventive and clever with these too.
You may not inwardly care or even show indifference to feelings about personal growth. But your soul cares. You may show a disinterest in personal fulfillment, but you can not ignore such. Life is about learning, adapting, qualifying and conforming. But these may not be qualities which you find easy to do. Your inner rebelliousness may shout “No!”, but you can also find that learning to channel and control this rebelliousness is really what life and these energies are asking of you. Defiance and/or indifference toward reputation or personal growth may satisfy short term, but is rarely fulfilling over the course of a life where personal quality is an important measure.
