The meaning of your rising sign
In almost any social setting, you will sometimes exchange sun signs with those you are talking to. And every once in a while, you might be surprised at what they tell you. Why do some people seem so at odds with their sun sign traits? The answer may lie in their rising sign. In fact, a person’s rising sign, while a little less frequently discussed than their solar counterpart, is often more revealing – and easier to guess – than their sun sign.
That’s because your rising sign is your “social mask.” It determines how you look, your voice, how you move and how you talk, among other things. It is truly the vehicle through which your sun sign expresses itself.
Where is your rising sign on your chart?
Your ascendant is the sign of the zodiac that rose on the eastern horizon at birth. Located at approximately the 9 o’clock position on the left side of the horoscope wheel, and depending on the house system you are using, it rules most or all of your astrological first houses, affecting how you come to us and how you are seen by others.
Although the terms “rising sign” and “ascendant” are sometimes used interchangeably, it’s worth noting that they are actually different. While your rising sign is literally the sign that was ascending at the time and place of your birth, your ascendant represents that sign’s exact degree.
The Ascendant sets the order of your natal chart by providing a snapshot of the sky at the exact time and place of your birth. It contains a blueprint of your personality traits, strengths and weaknesses, and even contains clues to your karma in this life!
The sign your ascendant is in and that sign’s planetary ruler may or may not be your horoscope ruler, depending on its relative strength, which is determined by the houses and aspects of the other planets in your natal chart.
What your rising sign reveals about you
Your ascending sign reflects how you come into the world each morning and how other people see you. It also affects your relationships, personal life, and career path. To top it off, your rising sign can even affect your appearance, your physical health and vitality, and the types of environments you feel most comfortable in.
Your other placements and your rising sign
Along with your sun and moon signs, your ascendant is the most important placement in your natal chart. However, that doesn’t mean that the rest of your chart doesn’t affect how your rising sign manifests itself in your day-to-day life.
For example, having Pisces ascending in your chart will make you gentle, creative, and psychic. However, when this is tempered by something like an Aries Sun or Moon sign, you will appear much more fiery than the average Pisces Ascension. And likewise, you would likely be far more relaxed than the average Aries, with the Pisces Ascendant softening the expression of a fiery Aries Sun or Moon identity.
You will often become familiar with the properties of these three placements (Sun, Moon, Rising). They are constantly modifying and interacting with each other, affecting you and other people’s perceptions of you.
How to find your rising sign
Finding out your natal chart can be difficult. Fortunately, there are many online applications that can do this for you. To get yours, go to the California Psychics app or website and open the natal chart tool. You enter the date, time and place of your birth and the app will do the rest! After that, you can easily open your birth chart and see your rising sign as well as your other placements.
Use your rising sign to your advantage
Your rising sign can affect both your strengths and weaknesses, so it’s important to research and develop your rising sign’s most positive expressions while trying to improve on your flaws.
By researching your rising sign and knowing how it can help or hinder you in different situations, you can play to your abilities and work on your weak points.
For example, if you know you are an ascending Sagittarius and therefore tend to gloss over details in favor of the bigger picture, being aware of this blind spot can help you remind yourself to focus whenever details are needed. And at the same time, your Sagittarius Rising ensures that you still keep an eye on the big picture!
Ultimately, understanding your ascendant will help you gain more self-knowledge. When you combine this with conscious intention, you can achieve great results, and it will bring you closer to the highest and best version of yourself!
Your rising sign is your gift to the world
Your rising sign is an extremely valuable tool that can help you understand your own personality and can give you the skills you need to see how your personal image affects other people. This allows you to maximize and deepen the value you add to the world while making your own life happier!
You can enhance these benefits with a Life Path Reading or meeting with a professional astrology medium. These can give you much more insight into what to work on, how to approach your goals, and how to use your rising sign to your advantage. If you keep an open mind, this information can have a positive impact on your career, your sense of spirituality, your relationships, and your happiness in almost every single area of your life.
