Midheaven (MC)

- the degree of the ecliptic (zodiac) that culminates above the earth (this occurs due south in the northern hemisphere; due north in the southern hemisphere). In quadrant systems of house division it denotes the 10th house cusp. The Latin term was medium caelum, 'middle heaven'; hence the abbreviation: MC. Not to be confused with the zenith.
