What Is the Ascendant?

(also known as the Rising Sign)

  • In Astrology, the degree of the Zodiac (sign) which is rising in the East at the time of your birth, is very important. The astrological sign which is the Ascendant is also called the Rising Sign. You can think of it as the outward appearance that you project to other people  -- the way others see you.

  • The Ascendant is an important and "sensitive point" on the birth chart because the Ascendant in a chart symbolizes your acquaintances, your connections in the local environment and surroundings in short, "the place." It also represents the responses you get, the sympathies you create; your personal choices or options, preferences, ideas and thoughts, your changes, etc.

  • Examine the short description of your Ascendant below, if you know it.

  • Do any of the descriptions apply to you or anyone else in your life?
