What is my Rising Sign?
Your Rising Sign is the zodiac sign that was “rising” on the eastern horizon at the exact moment and location of your birth. (The precise zodiac degree on the eastern horizon is your Ascendant.) The Rising Sign relates to your physical appearance as well as how you relate to your environment. It shows how you are seen by others, as well as what face or persona you show to the world.
Why should I look at the horoscope for my Rising Sign?
This is technical astro-geek stuff: A horoscope writer typically puts the Sun on the Ascendant and uses whole sign houses. Therefore, if she is writing a horoscope for Gemini and Mars is in Leo, then she might write about the meaning of Mars transiting the Third House. In essence, this interpretation would be more accurate for Gemini Rising than for a Gemini Sun. However, horoscopes also include important information about the Sun sign native, such as the current transit of the planet that disposes the native’s Sun. For example, the movement of Jupiter is especially important for a Sagittarius Sun horoscope.
