Gemini Rising: Two Different Styles?

Question: Two different styles? I have found two styles of presentation most common with Gemini rising people. One style is bubbly, changeable, talkative, and a little quirky. These natives are interesting and fun. They constantly explain things, whether it’s their own behavior and opinion or those of the world around them. Another distinct “style” is a rather cool and intellectual demeanor. These natives are often quite witty and clever, but they present themselves in a less frivolous way and their observations are sharp and the overall manner is serious. Any…...

Capricorn Ascendant: A Dampner?

Question: My Capricorn Ascendant shuts my personality DOWN. With all of my Libra placements (including Venus trine Jupiter exact), you’d think that I’m a social butterfly. Haha NOT! I’m the type of guy who goes to parties and will only follow around one person or stick to one group of people. So basically I want to know if your Ascendant can win over the Sun and Moon in a natal chart? In social situations and with people you do not know very well, you usually express the traits of the…...

Scorpio Ascendant: Heavily Protective Shell

The sign of Scorpio is the most maligned in the zodiac; it has an evil and sinister reputation which is underserved. The Scorpion is the stereotyped loner (the black eyeliner, fishnet stockings and leather jacket are optional) stuck in a quagmire, and they may not seek out, or may actively avoid, interaction with other people. There are many potential reasons for their solitude; intentional reasons include being preoccupied with the accumulation of wealth (material or psychological) or introverted, mystic, spiritual, religious, and personal considerations. Psychotherapist Karen R thinks this is…...

Leo Rising: U R A STAR

Question: Leo rising seems to be quite a shining rising sign. What do you think? Often with this ascendant, you have a very feline look about you. There is long, thick, or shaggy hair; some astrologers believe that you should look for sun-kissed faces, statement jewelry, and bright clothing. Sometimes obvious ‘big hair’ or with blonde highlights. Of course, you may just as easily have raven black hair – depending on other factors. People either bask in your rays or there is just this natural sunniness in your disposition. Coupled…...

Aries Rising

We can appreciate that everyone approaches life and its challenges in an assortment of ways. So, if you have Aries rising you tackle the world impulsively, independently, and with enormous mental and physical stamina. The positive role of your psychological development is autonomy. It refers to the ability to behave independently – to perform actions on your own, and you insist on it.” I can do it myself” is going to be your lifetime theme, and it gives a strong foundation for the developing self-confidence and feeling of delight in doing…

Taurus Rising

The Taurus rising individual approaches life with caution, realism and patience. This person is usually peaceable and slow to anger and hates to be hurried by others. They are motivated by material concerns and are fond of luxury, nice clothes and physical pleasures. They like tactile affection and are highly attuned on a sensual level. Taurus is the first of the earth signs and the first of the fixed signs. The orientation is towards bringing sustained results and cultivating an artistic appreciation of life. Those born with the bull rising…

Gemini Rising

  An individual born with Gemini Rising approaches life with great curiosity, versatility, and with a spirit that is always questioning and learning. Young and alive no matter what their chronological age, there is a desire to learn about everything; they are perpetual students of life. Yet, they also get bored rather quickly since there is such a strong inclination for socializing, talking, and generally having fun. With this sign ascending it often reveals someone who is friendly, flirtatious, and probably in need of constant feedback and a broad range of…

Cancer Rising

A person with Cancer rising is sensitive and likely to wear their emotions on their sleeve, although they may put on an aloof front until they get to know you. Cancer’s mood swings and tendency to bury their emotions under a wall of defence are two of the sign’s defining characteristics. Due to their heightened sensitivity, the person will wait for the surroundings to be deemed safe before venturing out. They feel the effects of the environment directly, and a subconscious part of them yearns to be independent despite the…

Leo Rising

A person with Leo rising usually presents a confident display with a sunny exterior, but how they feel on the inside is another matter altogether. Astrologers describe the Ascendant as the “door to the house”, and astrologer Sue Tompkins uses this analogy to describe the rising sign. The Ascendant is the lens through which we view the world and through which the world views us. Imagine you are wearing spectacles with blue-tinted glass, so as you look out into the world everything will appear to have a blue tint. People…

Virgo Rising

Those with Virgo Rising approach life with a strong need to bring order to the external environment. Well mannered and polite, they may be perceived as nervous. Situations are dealt with cautiously, and only acting when there is sufficient knowledge of a situation. The analyst is always present and Virgo can juggle several thousand details around at once, and sort out any mess you care to mention. Sometimes, they don’t participate much verbally and may enter a certain situation with the intent to analyze and critique what is happening. Virgo…

Libra Rising

Any person with Libra Rising approaches life with idealism, and a desire to cooperate in harmonious interchanges with others. They crave beauty, pleasure, and contact with others. Venus ruled people are social creatures, and they want life to be easy and lovely. Significant points in Libra look for a beautiful world of civil and balanced behavior. The innate ability is to initiate through reasoning, socializing and diplomatic skills. The type is highly sensitized to the views and judgments of others and sometimes real feelings are concealed to defend against creating…

Scorpio Rising: A Burning Aura

The ascendant is the first element of a horoscope and represents the outward appearance of the native. Furthermore, the ascendant is one of the most important chart points in natal astrology, and it suggests a great deal about what we experience in people upon first meeting them. A person whose ascendant is Scorpio is the most intriguing, secretive, and magnetic of all rising signs; they exude an aura that is both extremely penetrating and guardedly and passionately protective of their own nature. Symbolized by the scorpion, the gods of war…
