RISING SIGN OR ASCENDANT SIGN
In the birth chart, the sign occupying the first house is known as the ascendant. The ascendant is the sign on the horizon at the time of your birth. A person with an Aries ascendant is said to have a natural chart because all the zodiac signs will be aligned in their natural houses. While the sun sign pertains to our core selves, the rising sign or ascendant is said to represent the outer self. it is the face we present the world and how others tend to perceive us, especially on first impression. This is because the rising sign indicates our self-image, the vibe we give off, and the way we engage with the world around us. It also suggests something about our physical appearance. An Aries rising for example may have a wiry frame and ruddy complexion, while a Taurus rising tends to be more full figured with sensual features.
