The Rising Sun

  Your Ascendant or Rising Sign

The Ascendant is the Sign that rises over the horizon at the time of your birth. Despite the fact that many people forget about it, it is the third most influential Sign after the Sun and the Moon. The Ascendant or Rising Sign helps us to realize how important and influential the exact hour of our birth can be. Being the Sign that dictates our outer behaviour, such as our appearances and mannerisms, the Ascendant is important in helping us determine who we are.
A person with the Sagittarius Ascendant generally tends to be more of an outdoors type of person, they love travel, as well as sports. Scorpio however, is quite the opposite, being secretive, suspicious, and determined at times. These two signs, seperated by only a couple hours, lie at complete opposite ends in terms of personality. It is important to know the exact time of birth because half an hour here or there could mean a total difference in who you are.
