Rising sign calculator: A reliable and precise result, in no time!

Are you wondering how to find your rising sign? Well, to calculate it, you need to know your birthplace, as well as 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.

How to find your rising sign - Use the ascendant calculator below;

Calculate my rising sign

Your rising sign is determined by the time and place of your birth. To figure out your ascendant, fill in the form below:

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!

Our ascendant calculator is 100% reliable.

Susan Taylor has spent many long hours transcribing this complex calculation. 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 a rising sign, what does it symbolize? – 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.

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! 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.
