Rising sign meaning - It represents our instinctive behaviors, appearances and how we present ourselves 

This personality element acts as complimentary piece of astrological information to the 12 zodiac signs. In fact, it is referred to as being 100% you, whereas your sun sign only gives you a general overview of your personality. Our rising sign plays an integral part in setting up our astrological house structure, as well as determining where each of the planets falls in our birth chart. 

Knowing essential information about our ascendant sign gives us the intel we need to better understand our choices, behavior and relationship success. Our Astrologists also believe that this component is linked to our physical appearances. Indeed, our rising signs are formed in childhood and are formed according to our experiences, encounters and education.

Why is it so important to know yours? - It goes deeper than your sun sign

According to our expert Astrologers, once we are over 30 years old, our personalities tend to be based on our ascendant sign more than our star sign. This reasoning helps explain why lots of people struggle to find similarities between their personalities and the stereotypes associated with each sun sign. 

Indeed, this sign acts as your ‘deeper self’ and is the part of your character that comes out when people first meet you. When people describe you, they typically refer to character traits which apply to this side of your personality. It also influences your style, fashion sense and how you act in public. Indeed, it is related to the traits you are proud of, and like to show off.
