How can I calculate my Chinese zodiac rising sign?
Nothing could be simpler, if you know your birth time, then you can work out your Chinese ascendant. All you have to do is carry out an extra calculation according to the season in which you were born.
- If you were born in winter, take off 1 hour from your birth time (12:37 instead of 1:37 pm)
- If you were born in the summer, remove 2 hours from your birth time (11:37 a.m. instead of 1:37 p.m.).

What influence does my Chinese rising sign have on my personality?
The Chinese zodiac sign gives information about the personality of an individual. The ascendant / rising sign, is also known as the "road companion", influences this sign too, giving it impulse and orienting it in life. It is really the ascendant that gives the direction that the evolution of the individual's sign will take throughout life. It then reveals their true nature, their "deep self" (contrary to their "sign" which rather determines how the external family and social factors shape them).
Chinese Rat ascendant
Curious, you have a great need to learn and accumulate new experiences. We can't talk about you without forgetting your adaptability when you communicate. You form relationships and friendships with people very easily and are very personable.
♥ When it comes to love, you have a seductive personality. You love the notion of challenge and take pleasure in seducing people you find attractive. You are impulsive, and you only listen to your instincts and desires.
Chinese ascendant Ox
Thanks to this rising sign, you always show determination and perseverance. There is no goal you don't reach! Although you tend to jump into things that interest you, paradoxically, you are a balanced, calm and pragmatic person.
♥ In love, you are protective and very attached to traditions.
You're an adventurer, you like to take risks and go on ventures. Just like this beast, you enjoy taking care of others, protecting them and looking after your tribe. People admire you and love your company because you bring a great deal of energy with you everywhere!
♥ In a relationship you are passionate, fiery, and your ambition makes you want to move forward as a couple.
Relatively calm and passive, this ascendant allows you to live in serenity. Do you poison your existence with high demands? Never! As long as you have your comfort and your need for security is met, all is well.
♥ In love, you struggle to deal with conflict and drama. Your bold personality helps anchor your partner.
Chinese Dragon ascendant
"Ambition", "determination" and "will" are three words that describe you perfectly. You always seek to be admired for your courage and willingness to take risks. It works, but above all you stand out for your optimism, your honesty, and your inexhaustible energy.
♥ You’ll take all the risks necessary to make your partner happy. You are spirited, passionate and at times jealous.
Chinese ascendant Snake
Skillful and distrustful, you have the talent to do things with the utmost discretion. No one suspects what's going on until you reach your goal. You never do anything randomly, and your composure never fails you.
♥ Like this reptile, you know how to attract your prey thanks to strategies that always pay off...
Horse rising sign
Your ascendant gives you impressive energy and a strong need for independence. Routine? You run away from it like the plague. Your thing is adventure. That's why you let your desires guide you.
♥ In love, you can slow down the pace, otherwise your independence and desire for freedom will overpower you.
Making choices and taking on responsibilities are great challenges for the hesitant Goat ascendant. It’s perhaps your laziness that justifies your indecision. On the other hand, when it comes to being creative, you are the first to respond. Your artistic sense and intuition are more than developed.
♥ At your side, your partner will feel loved and understood, since you know how to capture their attention.
You are very skilled with your hands and your mind is as sharp as they come. As a result, you constantly need to move around and meet new people. You know how to adapt to different situations and people instantly click with you.
♥ You have everything to offer in a relationship. Your partner will appreciate your dynamism and your beautiful optimism.
In public, you are always looking to get noticed! Being surrounded and admired really gets you buzzing. Your love of attention sometimes leads you to being a little over the top. But, contrary to what your expansive side suggests, you are also a mysterious being.
♥ In love, you are faithful, loving and protective. Although, you can at times be tempted to look elsewhere when you’re not totally satisfied.
Your ascendant makes you empathetic and means you love helping other people out. You are not made to lead, but excel in the role of mediator. Kind, devoted and fun, you are full of character. You know how to show your fangs if necessary!
♥ When you are in a relationship, you are always ready to take full responsibility and have a protective streak.
You never get carried away because you know how to control and understand your emotions. Your entourage quickly finds you endearing, sympathetic and reliable! But in spite of this "good and kind" side, you are a true force of nature.
♥ You need a relationship based on simplicity and trust. When you are in love, you are full of attention and affection.
Susan Taylor’s insights: The importance of your ascendant
The nuances brought by the Ascendant to the general characteristics of the yearly sign are not negligible. The Ascendant modifies and refines. For example, a Horse individual with a Tiger Ascendant (Horse/Tiger) is not the same personality as a Horse individual with a Goat Ascendant (Horse/Skin). The former will be inclined by his Tiger Ascendant towards dynamism, heroism and confrontation, while the latter will be inclined by his Goat Ascendant towards more balance, moderation and reverie.
