Astrology is our go-to advice giver when we need assistance from the spiritual realm about our own lives. On top of learning about our star signs, we can know what is going on in all of our planets to really get a good, good read on what we’re like and the universe’s plans for us. We love learning more about different things like our Lilith sign and our secret sexual desires. There’s also something that we actually should be reading before our sun sign’s predictions. That is the rising sign. The rising sign or the ascendant is the zodiac sign that was ascending on the eastern horizon at the specific time and location of your birth. It determines the social and human behavior that you are born with. Some say that the older you get, the less it matters. We dive into why, below. Keep reading for more.
What Is The Rising Sign In The Zodiac?
The first thing you have to do is put in all your birth information to calculate your natal chart, which you can do here. The rising sign or ascendant is one of the three legs of your birth chart, along with your moon sign, that makes up the foundation of your personality. Your moon sign indicates your inner self. The rising sign is your outer self, or what people see you as to when they first meet you. These personality traits are given to you from birth. As you tend to get older, you grow more into your sun sign’s traits. It is your chosen path in life. Your sun sign gives you a mission in life, to learn to take from the great things about the said sign.
There are several theories as to why this sign tends to not matter in the long run. Some say that you start to shed your outer self as you become more comfortable with yourself as you age. If your star sign and rising are the same, chances are you have always been your true self! Although this is the goal of the zodiac, some may never shed the outer self they display to the world. Growth and change are representative of you becoming a blend of both throughout time.
