Inconjunct and Midheaven (MC)

Quincunxes with Midheaven and their meaning

The quincunx or inconjunct aspect of 150 degrees shows lack of balance, possible loss and exaggeration (something disproportional). There is an article on Astromarkt about the inconjunction (see link). This article is specifically about inconjunctions with the MC (Midheaven). 

Inconjuncts or quincunxes with the MC have a special effect on the status, the condition, the career or the 'name and fame'. Although this doesn't HAVE to be in a disruptive way, the lack of balance creates a danger. It is up to you how to deal with them.

There are in conjuncts in the natal chart, inconjuncts by transit and progressed inconjuncts. The inconjunct of Progressed Midheaven mirrors an unbalancing development in the career or in the position in the world or family. When it is an inconjunct by transit, the inconjunct shows what happened that influenced the position in the world outside or in the family ranking. 

The list of examples of quincunxes of Midheaven with Sun, Moon and planets includes links to my blog Astropost.blogspot.com, so that you can study them.  Of course all these examples are strictly related to the individual  of the example. Like all other aspects the inconjunct should be seen in the light of the natal chart, situation, gender, age, health condition, genes and social status. Also, it takes at least two more aspects to contribute to an important event. If the rest of the transits and progressions are nice and harmonious, that one inconjunct only shows a 'but…' (the tiny little irritating minus in a list of positive aspects). 

MEANING OF INCONJUNCT MC

Sun inconjunct Midheaven (your lifestyle or health is not in line with your position or condition - risk for health). Every year there are two days with transit Sun inconjunct your Midheaven. Mine are July 11/12 and May 11/12. This year I caught    a sinusitis… 

Moon inconjunct Midheaven (your background, needs and habits are not always in line  with your position). Your education or family demands might cause lack of balance in the career or condition. You might feel  too emotional about family matters or  your personal life and career are overly involved. The progressed Moon is inconjunct Midheaven 2 times in 27 years. Transit Moon will be inconjunct your MC 2 times a month. You may not even notice or feel it...

For Mercury inconjunct MC interests or schooling could not be in line with the career or position. The transit is less important, unless your natal Mercury is inconjunct MC. The progressed Mercury-MC inconjunct could refer to loss of interest in your present job. 

Venus is for desires, pleasures and love, so an inconjunct with Midheaven wouldn't make it easy to find a satisfying position or a marriage that matches your status. Transit Venus - MC or the progressed MC - Venus makes wishes come true, but the inconjunct doesn't give away anything without a loss somewhere, somehow, or without having to give up on something (like a bad habit or a desire or a loved one) or… the position in society. Transit Venus comes back more often and isn't that important, uness you have Venus inconjunct MC in your natal chart.

As Mars is about energy and drives the career or condition might be an energy drain. This is what I think, with an aching back during the transit of Mars inconjunct my MC.

Saturn 150 Midheaven refers to loss of status. I have examples of that:

1. http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2013/05/saturn-inconjunct-midheaven-and-lost.html This article on Astropost.blogspot.com gives a recent example.

2. Natal Sun inconjunct MC and Saturn inconjunct MC for the royal beheaded couple Louis and Marie-Antoinette:http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2013/05/the-astrology-of-marie-antoinette-and.html They lost status, position and life.

Astrologer Margareth Hone died with Progressed Sun inconjunct Progressed MC and transit Neptune - ruler 8th house of life and death - square Ascendant: http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2012/10/margareth-hone-libra-astrologer.html

Somehow MC inconjunct Uranus disqualifies or makes you an outsider by alienation. Even in football ( http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2012/06/living-with-astrology-and-ec-2012.html ) Quote:

" …at the final moment transit Midheaven was inconjunct Uranus. Inconjunctions don't promise a victory. They are about loss and losing balance (see Astromarkt). A surprising (Uranus) loss (in conjunct) as a result (MC): disqualified."

Salman Rushdie has a natal Uranus inconjunct Midheaven and he suddenly lost his status and position. Also he couldn't return to his homeland.

Transit Uranus inconjunct MC in Jesse Jackson's chart when he forgot about the microphone. I write about that in the Astropost on changingn times.

Golf star Mr. Ballesteros had Progressed MC inconjunct Neptune with Transit Saturn inconjunct Sun when he was taken to hospital. He didn't die then (in 2008), first he recovered. But the inconjunct with Neptune weakens the condition and the inconjunct Sun-Saturn is a step back in health and life style. http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2008/10/being-ill-and-chart-progressions-and.html

The MC inconjunct Jupiter might refer to a bit too much of success (and not knowing how to deal with it) or  to being 'lucky' (but with a loss involved).When Richard Nixon had to resign, he had one benificial aspect: transit Jupiter inconjunct Midheaven. He was not prosecuted (but… lost his position). Jupiter quincunx MC CAN be the indication of disproportional success and ditto assistance and help: http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2013/01/richard-nixons-accurate-chart.html

With transit Pluto inconjunct MC and other indications (!!!) like progressed Midheaven quincunx natal Jupiter Don Johnson had extreme and unbalancing success with Miami Vice: http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2013/03/don-johnsons-chart-and-life-venus.html The Jupiter-Pluto combination is a successful one (see: http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2011/05/jupiterpluto-midpoint-and-aspect.html ). The inconjuncts make it disproportional.

Chiron inconjunct Midheaven was just one of the transits and progressions during the accident of Prince Friso. His Pluto and Neptune were inconjunct the moment's MC and Ascendant, too, and there were Mars-Uranus afflictions. See http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2012/02/accident-and-chart-of-prince-friso.html

One of the aspects around the coronation of Queen Beatrix was Progressed Pholus inconjunct Progressed MC (an unbalancing turning point in her status and career, involving a loss of position). She moved out of her beloved Drakensteijn to The Hague. When she abdicated Pholus was back:

  •  transit Pholus square Progressed MC and 
  • transit Pholus inconjunct Progressed Ascendant

She returns to Drakensteijn. http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2012/01/pholus-and-saturn-when-you-retire.html

HOW TO DEAL WITH TRANSIT INCONJUNCTIONS?

The transit inconjunct alert: http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2012/02/transit-150-degree-aspect-alert.html doesn't give a recipe. Maybe the best way to deal with it is to remain as stable as possible, just like the men in the picture above...
