There are times when people just can’t identify with the attributes of their Sun or Moon sign. In fact, they may feel that they are an antithesis of their zodiac sign. You may also have observed it. Your Leo friend may not seek attention, may be because he or she has a Capricorn ascendant. Your Sagittarius friend is very possessive, may be because he or she has a Scorpio Ascendant. It is easy to understand why some people do not correspond to their Sun or Moon signs once you know about what is the rising sign or Ascendant in a horoscope.
Ascendant is the degree of the zodiac sign that was highest on the Easter horizon at the time and place of birth. When seen from Earth, the sky seems to move, so the entire zodiac can be observed in a span of 24 hours day which means the rising sign changes on the Eastern horizon every 2 hours because there are 12 zodiac signs. People tend to associate their physical, emotional and spiritual attributes more with rising sign at times.
Ascendant represents us in our purest and highest form; its like a lens of our personality through which people see us. It is the mask we wear to revel in the masquerade of life, to meet people. It embodies our natural reactions to things, objects, people and so on.
Don’t know your ascendant? You could sign up with Indastro to have your personalized birth chart ready. The sign that is located in the first house (which is also called the Ascendant) of your chart is called the rising sign or Ascendant. To determine the Ascendant, the exact time of birth is required since ascendants change every two hour.
You can get the astrological analysis and signification of 12 ascendants from the subsequent pages. The characteristics of the ascendant can differ a lot, depending upon the placement of the ruling planet and the other planets occupying the first house or aspecting it. A Sagittarius Ascendant, having Jupiter in Scorpio would be very different from a Sagittarius Ascendant having Jupiter in Aries.
