Hi, raincow. We have the same aspect! My conjunction is in Scorpio.
Moon conjunct the Midheaven is a powerful placement. Since the Moon is the deepest part of yourself and the Midheaven is your highest aspirations in the outer world, your professional strivings will come from a very soulful place. Your career path can be full of introspection and reflection. There's less ambition for sheer ambition's sake and more so a rather unconscious need for fulfill yourself emotionally.
Since the Moon represents our vulnerabilities, people with this position in their natal charts can be way too aware of and affected by what other people think. At a less mature level, this can make one extremely defensive. But, with personal growth, an uncanny sense of ease can develop in the public eye. The Moon is our place of comfort and Moon conjunct MC people can be unusually comfortable in the spotlight. This is why this is often called the "fame" position.
Moon conjunct MC people are like celebrities in our own way. There is a use of an intimate part of ourselves (the Moon) in our public image (Midheaven) in order to make an impression or get ahead. This creates a kind of pseudo-intimacy that draws in numerous "fans" and makes people believe they know us way better than they actually do. But, the thing is with Moon conjunct MC, this is very natural and not something that's necessarily calculated. We just instantly project that part of ourselves.
People instantly pick up on your Moon energy and your widespread reputation will relate to some part of your Moon sign's archetype. With Moon conjunct Midheaven in Pisces, you may be seen as highly artistic, compassionate, and spiritual but also a bit spacey, daydreamy, and something of a "lost soul". But, like I said, you're quite responsible for projecting this image. If you're not careful, the bad habits of your Moon will really negatively affect your social life. But, since Moon conjunct MC is so acutely aware of what others think, you can use the most positive traits of your Moon sign to cultivate the best image for yourself.
Also, look to your Moon sign's abilities and talents for clues to the best career paths and social roles for yourself.
