I read the descriptions of my rising sign and I relate… But I feel like this is a part of myself that I put out there for other people to get them to like me. Not everyone gets past it to form a deeper relationship with the real me. Is that part of having [this sign] as my rising sign?
That was an excerpt from a consult that I wanted to share with all of you. I left out the sign because I think the answer applies to EVERY sign.
The rising sign, also known as the ascendant, is your facade. It describes the first page of your personality. It is the person that you present when someone meets you for the first time. So in a way, this person is right on the money. The rising sign is something that you put out there for other people.
Some people have a very natural facade. What you see is what you get. Others have a very contrived, controlled image. What you see is what I want you to see! This leads some people to the conclusion that the rising sign isn’t “really me.” Like its just something that goes in between you and other people. It’s something that you put on.
Here’s the thing, you are the one who chooses to put it on. That mask may or may not be you, but YOU made it. YOU are evident in the mask as the creator of the mask. And that says a lot about you… The REAL you.
What’s your rising sign? What does your mask say about you?
