Your Ascendant

Why is it so important for you to know your Rising Sign?

The Rising Sign, also known as the Ascendant is the sign that was rising on the Eastern horizon at the moment of your birth.

Consequently, it exerts significant influence over your personality, thus becoming your second nature. The Ascendant symbolizes the "social mask" you unconsciously put on when you meet new people which means that they formulate their first impressions of you based on the positive, as well as negative traits of your Rising Sign. To some extent, your appearance too reflects your Ascendant. Some astrologers consider that it comes into play only after a person reaches 30 years of age.
