ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT RISING SIGNS
The Rising Sign also known as the Ascendant, rules the first house of the Zodiac chart and is discovered by a person’s time of birth. The Rising Sign signifies the”face” we show to the world and how the world sees you. The 1st house, Rising Sign is the lens by which an Astrologer would view the Natal/Birth Chart of an individual, giving an indication of how they would interact through life. Some people consider the Rising Sign, the “mask” hiding the the true essence (Sun Sign) of a person. This is because if the Rising Sign is in a Sign with an element stronger than the Sun Sign, the Sun Sign can be overshadowed. For example if a person has a Cancer Sun Sign but an Aries Rising Sign, because Aries is ruled by the element of Fire and Cancer ruled by the element Water., Aries will overshadow the energy of Cancer, giving the impression that the individual is an Aries. Although a strong Cancer (lots of water) could theoretically dampen the Aries Fire. This could also happen if Mercury, Venus, Mars or Jupiter are in Aries too. In fact what you presume a person to be isn’t always what you’re actually getting. That’s why it’s wise to get to know a person on a deeper level before getting too involved, especially where love is concerned. In Astrology, each individual, because of Free Will, can veer towards the positive or negative traits of a Sign, also depending on how self-introspective they are/aware of Cause and Affect.
