The ascendant is the place where everything in your chart begins.

It will define the nature of the first impression you give to others, the planet that rules your chart, aspects of your personality will be coloured by it and how you approach, react and live in the world on the most fundamental level. Through it, you are able to know a lot about a person, almost instantly, even if you have never met or know them only a little….

And because The Ascendant is considered the starting point of your chart, you should see it as the face you show most often to the outside world. The characteristics of this sign will be much more apparent to others than perhaps the deeper, more essential part of you represented by the Sun or the Moon. For example: whether you like small talk at parties, how you introduce yourself to others, are you shy or confident at job interviews, are you charming or abrasive with new acquaintances?  All of this is coloured largely by your Rising sign. Sometimes the Rising sign can easily explain why you feel that people’s first impression of you has nothing at all to do with who you feel you really are, and depending on the relationships (or aspects) that your Ascendant makes to other points, planets and significators in the chart will determine how you are seen by the rest of the world and how you know yourself.

The Rising sign is a brilliant thing to know for horoscope forecasts you will find they suddenly become much more meaningful and accurate when you read this sign instead of your Sun sign.  Try it the next time you read a horoscope and I promise you will be surprised.

And…it will also decide for you which of the planets and its house rulerships has the most influence on you. Very handy stuff to know if you’d like to get a deeper understanding of why you are here on earth and what you’re most likely to do while you are here. The planet that rules your Rising sign will be ruling your chart too. This can show you a lot about what areas of your life will be most important to you. If Venus rules your chart (with a Taurus or Libra Ascendant) then beauty, harmony and balance will be key and depending on the sign and house that Venus is in, this will show you what part of your life must have beauty, harmony and balance the most! Or, if Pluto rules your chart (Scorpio Ascendant) then it will be all about power, regeneration and all things taboo.  To see more about the charateristics of your Rising sign, check out Cafe Astrology’s article.

Briefly, here are the planetary rulerships in Astrology (traditonal and modern) so you can see what planet rules your chart.
