Your Ascendant

Your Ascendant (or Rising Sign) reveals the ways in which you present yourself to others, and how you immediately respond to the world.

It describes the ways in which you project yourself out into the environment, and the kinds of experiences you need to have in order to make your life meaningful.

You can think of your Ascendant as symbolizing the qualities you project in different situations, or the mask that you wear as you encounter something new.

The Ascendant or Rising Sign is the degree of the Zodiac that was rising above the eastern horizon at the moment that you are born.

To find your Ascendant, you will need to know the time and place that you were born.
