Last month we discussed the “Angles” in your birth chart. These are considered to be the points where you meet and interact with the outside world, where you come “alive”. This month we will delve more fully into the Ascendant!
The Ascendant (Asc) also called your Rising Sign is the sign that was rising over the eastern horizon at the moment and place of your birth, the cusp of the first house of self. The degree of the Ascendant sign varies based on birth place & changes on average every four minutes with a new sign on the horizon every two hours on average. The Ascendant is connected with the rotation of the Earth on its axis, thus it shows how your character is manifested in a practical way on earth.
