What is my rising sign, and what does it mean? – It represents your deeper, inner self
According to Susan Taylor, our head astrologer, we tend to 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.
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! 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 on your personality, unless it is your Moon sign that predominates, this is particularly the case for many women.
What role does your rising sign play in shaping your personality?
Each ascendant has its own strengths and weaknesses that combine with the characteristics of your zodiac sign. In short, our ascendant plays a fundamental role in defining a complete picture of our personality and inclinations.

What house is my rising sign in?
Your rising sign is the sign that was on the horizon at the moment of your birth, and it represents the way you present yourself to the world and your first impression on others. The house of your rising sign is the house that starts at the degree of your rising sign.
For example, if your rising sign is in Aries, and it is at 10 degrees, the house that starts at 10 degrees Aries is your first house. Your second house will start at the degree that follows, which would be 11 degrees, and so on. Knowing the house of your rising sign can give you insight into the areas of life where you are most likely to focus your energy and attention, as well as the themes and qualities that are important to your personal identity and self-expression.
