Ascendant Sign Characteristics: Part TwoAugust 21, 2020
Our astrological sign is not just limited to our sun sign anymore! The newest in astrology asks for a more in-depth look into our personalities with the help of our moon and ascendant (or rising) signs! Much like the sun is the center of our galaxy, our sun sign represents the center of our personalities and how we navigate life lessons. Our moon sign is the ruler of our inner worlds and gives insight into our emotional selves.
Our ascendant signs are all about surface-level reflections, and how we make first impressions on the people around us. Below, find out what type of imprints you make—the good and the bad!
Ascendant in Libra
Symbolized by the scales, those with a Libra rising have a strong need for justice, balance, and harmony in their lives. Due to this, they tend to be people-pleasing and charming. Due to their demeanor, it is not hard for them to make friends. Libra ascendants are easily overwhelmed when things are less-than-perfect. Physically, Libra risings are graceful and beautiful with a high fashion sense.
Ascendant in Scorpio
The most secretive sign of the zodiac, Scorpio ascendants, has a lot going on beneath the surface. Upon the first impression, it may seem like they are holding a lot back. Scorpios are also highly intense once they let you in. This intensity makes those with Scorpio risings quite determined and focused. Their private yet intense nature gives Scorpio ascendants piercing, penetrative eyes that are highly intoxicating.
Ascendant in Sagittarius
Always down for an adventure, Sagittarius ascendants are often surrounding by groups of interesting people. Don’t get them wrong, though, they are highly independent, and you’ll find they are often moving on to the next “big thing.” Their impulsiveness can make them a bit flighty and unreliable. Sagittarius risings have a lot of energy and love to exercise. This energy overload can make them quite clumsy and exaggerated.
Ascendant in Capricorn
Capricorn ascendants are very serious and calculated upon first impressions. Those with a Capricorn rising do not make decisions on a whim and are very intentional with the company they keep. Career oriented and driven by success, the Capricorn can, at times, come off as stuffy and superior. Their facial features are often sharp and interpreted as being quite hard to approach.
Ascendant in Aquarius
The Aquarius rising person has quite the reputation for being aloof and waif-like. Upon further inspection, they can be quite kind and engaged—particularly with universal matters. The Aquarius ascendant is intellectual to a fault and sometimes can overwhelm those around them with issues they are passionate about. Physically, the Aquarius is not concerned with looking “normal” and are unique and eccentric in their fashion choices and behaviors.
Ascendant in Pisces
Like Cancer ascendants, Pisces are ruled by emotions. It is tough for the Pisces rising not to wear their hearts on their sleeves, so it is easy to know how they are feeling at any given time. Rarely aggressive, Pisces ascendant people are generally agreeable and have the harmony of the group in mind at all times. Such a focus on others frequently makes them easy to manipulate. Large and dreamy eyes are a typical Pisces rising characteristic.
Don’t be fooled into thinking surface-level characteristics represented by our ascendant signs are unimportant. The first impression we make on others around us shape their idea of who we are underneath our exteriors!
