I agree with a lot of what I read here. I’m a Sagittarius Rising. A coworker once told me that I enter a room like Lydia from The Steve Harvey Show. Basically I stumble in like I’m lost or something. True!

Stylewise, my Libra Sun would love for me to put a little makeup on and try to dress nice. My Ascendant doesn’t give a shit. 🧗‍♀️🤸‍♀️  So my Venus in Virgo says, “Well, at least slap on deodorant, brush your teeth and your hair and wear clean clothes!” “Are you seriously going to the pool with hairy legs? Nope, go fix that now.” 🚓 👮‍♀️ 

If I’m exhausted, my Taurus Moon sort of takes over. I get hangry, cranky and people don’t want to mess with that. They’ll let me eat or whatever I have to do.

For me my Rising is somehow a mask… but not one I force on myself, I feel very comfortable with the costumelaugh But well, having a Libra Rising (Leo Venus) I’m a bit theatrical… I like trying various costumes and never felt I could stop and fit to only one stylelaugh

My Virgo Sun is part of a stellium in the 12 house. I feel soooo Neptunian… I don’t feel like a Virgo and never really felt like one. I do have some traits, but none of the persons I met expected me to be a Virgo Sun. Not even the people who knew me better and spent time with me… 

I have Neptune in a stellium in the 3 house… and I feel Neptune is very strong player for me, stronger than Virgo or Rising. I do see I match things I read about this rising: I do care a lot about how I look and all the time, cloths and make up, interest in beauty & arts etc. However I have Pluto in the 1 house and I feel this is very much part of me… I’m not sociable, although people generally like me and feel attracted to me (I am perceived as nice and I have a smiley face/ positive expression in general), they immediately notice (and I don’t hide it) I’m a loner and very much enjoy solitude. I’m not the social butterfly Libra Rising is said to be and never was one. And I live very much in a dream… or dream about some other possible worlds… I’ve always felt Neptune was strong… I was not surprised to discover he is my chart depositor.

The ascendant is actually the DEGREE of the Zodiac rising over the eastern horizon point of a chart. It is the eastern angle point where planets and stars rise up clockwise from the horizon into the sky and is the cusp of the first house for that chart. Modern astrologers sometimes call the rising SIGN the ascendant. 

Anyway, the sign on the first house cusp and its ruler give description to the terms associated with the meaning of the first house. The first house carries the same basic meaning no matter what sign is on the cusp, that being the HOUSE of the self, the lens through which all the influences of the chart pours into the external world through the personality. The first house rules the personal and natural disposition of the person, and rules the head and face of the human frame. The Zodiac sign on the ascendant and its planetary ruler shows how the personality of the person is expressed through the basic meaning of the first house, expressed according to the ascendant mode, element and all conditions of its ruling planet.

If we are going to remark on the other angles then I should mention that the Immum Coeli and the Nadir are different points on the celestial sphere. Easiest way to explain it…pointing straight up from where you are, that’s the Zenith, the opposite straight down is the Nadir. The Medium Coeli or Midheaven is the point in the sky where the rising planets and stars reach their highest point. Think of your local Sun at Noon, it has reached its highest point of the day from your locale when its on the midheaven (which is not straight up over your head) and opposite the midheaven is the point of the Immum Coeli, which is also the cusp of the 4th house in a calculated chart. This is the astronomy of the Astrology.

I didn’t begin to appreciate astrology until I looked up what my own ascendant meant. I had never strongly identified with my Cancer sun so astrology never appealed to me. But when I began looking into my Scorpio ascendant I was hooked. My rising sign described me so much more in depth.

My Sun and ASC are the same.

Sagittarius.

Conjunct from the 12th house side.

On Halloween I go as myself.

Scary…

Me too.

Only opposite of Fibuceus. I didn’t strongly ID with my Scorpio sun until I understood my Cancer asc. My rising actually describes me in much more depth. And, its what everyone sees. But, I never discount the moon.

Wow we could start a gang of us Cancer-Scorpios lol   wink

But yes, I 100% agree with you both. Even though I love Cancer and I do strongly identify with it (because its also my Moon sign) I used to get annoyed because the descriptions only told half the story- they’d make me sound more… tame… than I felt. I’d read descriptions of Scorpio and think “why does that sound exactly like me?” and then of course I learned about the natal chart and everything made sense. I think that ‘aha’ moment when people learn their Ascendant is pretty common.
