Your Sun, Moon and Rising Signs
Your Ascendant is Libra
Your Ascendant (or Rising Sign) reveals the ways in which you present yourself to others, as well as the ways in which you immediately respond to the world around you. As such, it describes the ways in which we project ourselves out into the environment as well as the kinds of experiences we need to have in order to make life meaningful.
The combination of Sun, Moon and Ascendant describe what you want (Sun), what you need (Moon), and the style in which you will go about getting it (Ascendant).

The tendency to change your mind is ever-present, and may lead to vacillation, indecisiveness and a tendency to fence-sit if the appropriate mode of action cannot be chosen. Often, your desire to be liked, and a willingness to please others through how you conduct yourself can lead you to “people-please”, rather than commit to what is right or fair. In order to guard against this potential, a reliable, fair and objective system of values needs to be established- you would do well to think about principles like the Law, which govern and guide activity.
Coupled with this objectivity is the need to become aware of any intrinsic desire to avoid decisiveness in order to be liked, for this will lead to others experiencing you as a fickle, and somehow opportunistic personality, rather than the finely balanced, fair-minded individual that you truly are. You may be easily imposed upon by others because of your tendency to avoid openly displaying what you really want. You yourself are likely to feel rather frustrated by this inability to choose, until you take a closer look, and admit what your true motives are. Are you seeking approval by avoiding action? Do you know what the right path is, but are not sure you should say so in case someone else disagrees?
A balance must be found between the masculine and feminine principles of the psyche, between activity and passivity, head and heart, intuition and logic. Negotiating conflict through charm and objectivity is your forte, yet you might tend to avoid confrontation at all costs. You need the energy of competition to know where you stand. When you find these points of balance, you are able to express the grace, poise and beauty which are also characteristic of this sign. Thus, you can appear as very pleasing to others and willing to compromise (which you are), but can also be exceedingly principled when a decision is made, once you have decided on what you want.
The search for the perfect system, relationship or ideal often leads you into many areas of interest and exploration. Your natural inquisitiveness can lead to many diverse experiences. This is a mental sign after all, so research is a key theme. The arena of relationship is a major concern, and you will get the best from this search when you learn to define who you are, and what you need first, and then compromise to make things agreeable. This is the sign of partnerships, and you may feel that you need to be partnered to be able to project yourself fully. Through relationships, you are likely to learn to assert yourself, to adjust to others, and to stand up for the principles which you believe are fair.
Symmetry, proportion and balance are also important principles, and you are likely to prefer to be in harmonious, refined and graceful environments. You are likely to need to be surrounded by beautiful and symmetrical things and will function best in an organized and aesthetic environment. This is important for mental balance. You are likely to be quite refined, with a sense of fashion, style and taste that is often innate. Sometimes, those with Libra rising are very concerned with the projection of a stylish and aesthetic appearance, and so, may be very fashion conscious.
You are also probably known for your listening and negotiation skills, and may be known to give very good advice. This is the sign of wise counsel, and your ability to make a detached assessment is likely to be valued by others. You may be somewhat lazy, or inclined to the easy path in life until you know exactly what you want. Then you will focus yourself, often when you have a partner in mind. You may also be very domesticated, with a highly refined sense of quality in the domestic environment.
