In astrology, your rising sign plays an important role in the formation of your personality, and it also brings complementary information to your zodiac sign. So, are you wondering what’s my rising sign? If so, you’re in the right place because thanks to Susan Taylor's simulator, you'll have the answer in no time!

Rising sign calculator: A reliable and precise result, immediately!

To calculate your ascendant sign, you need to know your birthplace but also the day and the exact time of your birth. Then, a study of the astronomical tables will follow to determine the location of your ascendant in the sky along the Eastern horizon at the time you were born.

Date, Time and Place of Birth :

You are %sign% ascendant

The rising sign, also known as the cusp (or beginning) of the first astrological house, is indicated by the intersection of the horizon with the point of the ecliptic. In order to calculate it, you can use a computer program or use the Table of Houses, which indicates the degree of the ecliptic where the ascendant is located according to the sidereal time of the birth chart and the geographical latitude of the person's birthplace.

The Sun takes about a month to cross a zodiac sign, yet the Earth's rotation indicates that the sign that rises on the horizon changes every 2 hours. Your ascendant is therefore determined by the time and place of your birth. This is why someone born on the same day and year as you, is not necessarily like you at all!

Susan Taylor has spent many long hours transcribing this complex calculation that is the ascendant. She has taken into account many parameters, such as the different time zones, summer or winter hours etc... This explains why sometimes you won’t find the same rising sign on different websites, and trust us; we receive many messages informing us of this. Although, rest assured that the rising sign given by our simulator is the correct one.

What is an ascendant sign in astrology?

In addition to having a sun sign, you also have an ascendant. It represents an essential point of your birth chart which must imperatively be distinguished from the sun sign, also known as your zodiac sign. It indicates the way you behave with others, plus it also illustrates the image you give off to people whom you don’t know. This sign is also closely related to your physical appearance and style.

The rising sign represents your "inner self", meaning who you are deep down. It can be found in astrological house 1, which is the sign that rose in the east at the time of your birth.

The description of a native's personality will be more complete if we look at the position of the Sun and the position of the ascendant in their birth chart. This way, you can have signs that are quite opposite, but which in the end are quite complementary. If you do not recognize yourself in the description of your sun sign, it is possible that your rising sign has taken the upper hand, unless it is your Moon sign that predominates, this is particularly the case for many women.

What is the role of the rising sign? – It represents your deeper, inner self

According to Susan Taylor, our head astrologer, we tend to get be more like our ascendant sign rather than our sun sign after the age of 30. Indeed, this probably explains why many of you don’t recognize yourselves in the description of your sign.

Rising signs

The rising sign is your "inner self", what you are intrinsically in the first astrological house. It’s located opposite the descendant, in house 7, which represents "me + the other", and therefore influences your relationships and love stories.

The description of a native's personality will be more complete if we look at the position of the Sun in their chart AND the position of their ascendant. We can have signs that are quite different, but which are complementary!

For example, a Capricorn sun Aries rising will be much more reflective and analytical than an Aries sun Aries rising, who will be above all instinctive and irritable.

Can a person's rising sign change?

No, the ascendant does not change during one's life, since it depends on the date, time, and place of birth of the individual, it is an integral part of the birth chart and therefore never changes.

What is the difference between your Moon sign and ascendant? Is your rising sign important?

There is no correlation between our Moon signs and ascendants and yes, your ascendant is (somewhat) more important than the Moon sign.

  • The Sun sign is the position of the Sun in your natal chart. If the Sun is in Capricorn on January 13th for example, then you are a Capricorn.
  • The Moon sign is the position of the Moon in your chart. This position depends on your birth time because the Moon travels through the zodiac very quickly! It is said that the lunar sign is more impacting for a woman than for a man because it represents the way she expresses her femininity and the type of woman she is (e.g., a woman with the Moon in Leo will be more dominant and will have a flamboyant side even if it is not in the characteristics of her solar sign). For a man, the lunar sign will be less emphasized, and it is the solar sign that will be noticed more in him. The position of the Moon in his natal chart will represent his feminine part, his sensitivity but also the type of woman he is attracted to, his mother or his childhood...
  • The rising sign is just as important for both men and women. It completes the characteristics of the astral sign (thus the solar sign).

One can have a star sign and a rising sign that complement each other. For example, a Virgo sun Capricorn rising: whose common characteristics are the element "EARTH": mean this personality is realistic, concrete, organized, and introverted too.

One can also have a very different astrological sign and ascendant, which are both very different. For example, an Aries sun Capricorn rising; here the Aries will be lively, fast, impulsive, and extroverted, on the contrary to the Capricorn who is slower, more settled, mature, and determined. This kind of combination sometimes gives rise to inner conflicts but upon reflection, one realizes that it produces rich personalities, the ascendant being here complementary to the sign, it “balances”

Before going into the details of the planets, the astrological houses, and the interplanetary aspects of the natal chart, an astrologer has quite a bit of information about your personality by looking at your natal chart (in the following order):

1/ The position of the Sun in sign, i.e., your astrological sign. This represents you, your determination, and your conscious part.
2/ The rising sign, which illustrates you, and your physical appearance.
3/ The position of the Moon in sign, which highlights your inner world, your sensitivity and, your feminine side.
