It turns out that a person’s character is determined by not one but two zodiac signs: the one under which you were born and your rising sign – the ascendant! So, how do you calculate it and how does it affect your life?

What is the ascendant sign?

Why is this Leo so modest and does not like noisy company? This person is Capricorn rising. And what’s up with Pisces, who talks a mile a minute? They clearly have an ascending sign of Gemini.

The rising (or ascending sign) is often the mask that we wear. It also determines how we deal with everyday problems.

It is the qualities of the ascendant that we notice first in a new acquaintance! After all, it defines the person’s first, natural reaction to new people and situations.
