Rising Sign or Astrological Ascendant
The Ascendant or Rising Sign is one of the most important parts of astrology if you understand how to use it.
The Sun represents potentially who you are and who you can become. The sign on the Ascendant actually directs the expression of the Sun’s qualities. The Ascendant or Rising Sign helps you develop your personality and choose which experiences you want to have in life to express the potential of your Sun sign. It helps you to filter the whole world of events and choices into something deeply personal and meaningful. You’ll feel less confused and adrift, more at home and secure, if you understand how to use your Rising Sign.
If you use your Rising sign consciously you’ll feel in touch with your Soul and anchored in the Self, able to make wise choices.
Knowing how to use your Rising Sign empowers the rest of your chart and resolves psychological issues. If you don’t understand how to use your Rising Sign you may feel lost and empty.
