What is a rising sign and how does it influence us?
The ascendant is the zodiac sign that appeared on the horizon just as you were born. It basically reveals how you show yourself to the world, so many call it a "mask" or "business card." It brings out the features that come up at first glance. That's what everyone notices when you introduce yourself to the world.
We can say it this way: the sun sign reveals who we are. The ascendant reveals how we show what we are, the impression we make on others, how we are viewed by people, how we express ourselves, and how we live in situations. All of this is influenced by the rising sign.
It is very common for us to identify more with the rising sign than with the solar sign, because it is what gives shape to our personality and essence. These features are more easily seen than those of the sun sign, which may camouflage behind the ascendant.
