The extracts below have been taken from Matrix Software's Midpoint Keys report. These excerpts show the writing style of the author; Laura DesJardins.
The full report covers the natal midpoints as well as transits, progressions and solar arc directions for 2 years. The report length is approximately 70-90 pages.
One has the capacity to move up in the world and/or make a big move for their employment, which usually happens suddenly. This may manifest by moving to a completely different type of place. This also relates to the volatile mother who has many mood swings and could have a chemical imbalance. But on the positive side, there could be the gathering of a group of women for the attainment of knowledge.
One may convert from being limited in the way they think to a free way of expressing their ideas. Freeing one's self from the past is the main manifestation of this, as well as feeling excited about new insights and having a new love of study. This denotes the removal of old thought patterns that have been limiting and having the desire to learn new ways to communicate effectively. The best example of this would be the conversion from MS DOS to Windows, thus, stepping up the pace and becoming more state-of-the-art in one's personal awareness.
There are sudden unusual insights that come with this position, giving perceptive abilities, as in clairvoyance or having future sight. One may have writing and public speaking gifts along with strong ideals and transformational thinking. On the shadow side of this energy, one may have an unpredictable nature or lack of stable reality, which can create confusion when trying to explain their thoughts to another.
There can be effective communication with the people one loves as well as having the capacity to talk about love with others and/or writing about love. With this, good news can come or one could have pleasant communications with their mate. It represents healthy relationships, where there is good communication between each other. On a professional level, one may have sales skills and the ability to be multifaceted. There is a love of learning and gathering of knowledge and it also gives artistic skills.
Making a big decision or being involved in legal matters is a manifestation of this energy. There's cooperation from others and teamwork now. One can be attracted to someone who is more of the physical, well-endowed type with lots of sex appeal...
Active Midpoints: Aug 01, 2004 to Aug 01, 2006
When interpreting the active midpoints one should keep in mind that the strongest midpoint is the one that is activating a natal midpoint. Thus if your natal midpoint has been activated by transit or progression/direction, then the possibility of the events happening are much stronger. The transits to that natal midpoint seem to be the final timer on an event, which could be indicated in the birth chart. These interpretations address not only what could likely happen for the self but also for others. These midpoints also relate to medical issues, which could be for the self and or others around you. Many times these interpretations medically will have already been addressed, since one may have been working on their personal habits long before, thus arresting any ill effects from the midpoint. The activation of midpoints can happen as early as 1 degree or the equivalent of one year ahead of the exact hit, thus it's good to really look ahead at the energy being activated (by directed planets especially) during the coming year. The active midpoints look at our potential for personal growth, act as a guide for our future and can be used as an adjunct to the usual techniques of interpretive astrology.

This represents the union of yin and yang, night versus day, the masculine versus the feminine energy. These are the unions that result in marriage or the merger of two opposites. It is also a time when one experiences the uniting of the self, the right and left brain merging, and/or the coming together of two separate identities.
