MIDPOINTS IN ASTROLOGY

Midpoints are considered one of the most successful astrological applications available for predictive abilities. A midpoint is the exact halfway point between two planets or two significant points (Ascendant, Midheaven) or astrological bodies such as Chiron. The Part of Fortune, as well as the Vertex, or other bodies that you use to delineate an Astrology Chart can also be used when calculating midpoints.


If, for example, you have Uranus at 11 degrees Cancer and the Moon at 28 degrees Scorpio, the midpoint would be 19 degrees Virgo. If you were to have a planet or significant point in the natal chart that is within a one degree orb of 19 degrees Virgo, that planet /point would be influenced by the energies of Uranus and the Moon and would provide an influence from this planetary position. If let’s say you have Mars at 19 degrees, Mars would be heavily influenced by Uranus and the Moon.


With this example, when delineating transits and progressions, any planetary link to this position would also carry these overtones as well as the conjunction to Mars. You can also use the semi-square, the square, the Sesquiquadrate and the opposition when delineating this configuration. These aspects are all divisions of 45 degrees and will bring action, create events and make these events noticeable to the individual and also at times to others that are involved in the equations.


Transit Midpoints are very significant when deciphering potential events especially events tied to situations that are suggested by the natal midpoints and the houses involved in the equation. As mentioned, use an orb of no more than one degree when deciphering what potential situations may occur. Midpoints are significant because they will provide the Astrologer with a clearer indication of what potential lies within the bounds of these transfigurations.


This can also be applied to any midpoint of any combination found in the natal chart, as the midpoint becomes a focal point when transits or progression join up and make contact with these sensitive points. In most cases when the conjunction is activated between the two planets or significant points and the aspect is direct within one minute, you can expect something to happen.


The house location of the midpoint will provide you with the area of life affected. Also, look at the houses the two bodies are located in the natal chart to provide an even clearer picture. Also take into consideration what the planets represent and how this area of life will be affected.


For example, the Moon and Uranus and Mars would suggest an emotional experience that would be sudden and unexpected with the potential for aggressive action or progressive movement in the areas of life indicated.


Midpoints can pinpoint events although the more angles involved, the harder it is to delineate. Using the midpoint between the two planets is often sufficed in providing additional information. When dealing with midpoints, pay particular attention to the midpoints between the Sun and the Moon, and the Ascendant and the Midheaven.
