Aug 29, 2018 What does it mean when a planet is rising in Astrology? When a planet is rising, it is effectively conjunct the Ascendant or Rising Sign. At the time of one's birth, this planet was rising in the horizon at one's location of birth. Nov 15, 2017 The rising sign in astrology, also know as the ascendant, is responsible for first impressions. How you act naturally and spontaneously is symbolized by the sign that was rising at your time of birth.

If you’ve been following along with my memes, polls in my stories and videos, you’ve heard me talking a lot about sun signs, moon signs and rising signs. Finding your sun, moon and rising sign is often a game changer and can help you understand yourself on a deeper level.
If you’re brand new to astrology and I ask you what’s your sun, moon and rising— you likely have NO IDEA! You will know your sun sign, as that’s the sign that’s based off of your birthday but your moon and rising take a little bit more digging.
What is a Rising Sign? The Rising sign is interchangeably called the Ascendant. It can be located on a natal chart as the sign on which the 1 st House cusp falls. It is the sign that was at the eastern horizon point, from the viewpoint of your birth coordinates, at the moment of your birth. Technically, your Rising sign - also known as the 'Ascendant' - is the sign that was rising over the horizon at the exact time you were born. In Astrology though, your Rising sign is also the sign around which your entire birth chart is oriented.
You’ve maybe heard of “Leo Season” or “Gemini Season” — each sun sign has a 4 week window throughout the year in which they SHINE. Like I said, you find out your sun sign based on your birthday. Since I was born on August 15th, and Leo season runs from July 23 - August 22nd, I know that I’m a LEO SUN!
The sun is your basic nature, the energy that comes naturally to you and is able to seemingly effortlessly flow through you as you maneuver the world and its challenges. It becomes your basic identity, the main expression and end-all decision-maker in situations that impact you. The sun has a large role in how you respond to new experiences, often dictating your initial reactions and dominating your actions.
