The ascendant acts as your ‘inner self’ and is known as the first house in the house system. The rising sign represents your attitude to life. Your ascendant is the part of your personality that comes out when people first meet you. When people describe you, they typically refer to character traits which apply to your ascendant.

Having all the information on your rising sign is critical for understanding who you really are and for acquiring information on your relationships and career. Thanks to our rising sign calculator, you have everything you need for an intense look into your personality.
