Yesterday's post was about the transits and progressions with Sun/Moon midpoint. Sun/Moon midpoint is what it says that it is: the midpoint between Sun and Moon. Ascendant/Midheaven (AC/MC) is another important midpoint. It is the crosspoint of meridian and horizon, the very spot on earth uses for calculating the chart. The angular positions (positions on Ascendant or the meridian - MC or IC -) are prominent positions. The planets on those positions have great impact on the Astrological ID. They show up like special marks do. Any aspect with Sun/Moon or AC/MC is an important aspect. These aspects show more about the nature of a person's motivation and the vital importance of a chart.
BTW Sun/Moon and Ascendant/Midheaven can't be calculated without knowing the hour and place of a birth. Those who don't know the hour of birth could have a look at the post about Zero Aries. Continue for the combinations of Sun/Moon and AC/MC.
