The Ascendant (abbreviation AC) or rising sign is the sign of the western zodiac that rises on the eastern horizon at the time of a person's birth. This sign changes approximately every two hours. Therefore, not only the exact place of birth but also the time of birth is needed to calculate your Ascendant.
The term ascendant can be derived from the Latin word "ascendere". This means "to ascend". The Ascendant is the second most important feature in a horoscope. The Ascendant symbolizes the abilities and potentials of you and how you react to the outside world and deal with certain situations based on these qualities. We calculate not only the ascendant but also the zodiac sign, the moon sign, or the complete birth chart for free.
There are a couple of factors that influence how strong or weak a force the ascendant may be in the chart. The planet that rules the astrological sign of the ascendant is called the chart ruler and is said to be of particular importance. So for example, if the ascendant sign is Gemini, Mercury will be the chart ruler, and so "set the tone" for the chart in many ways. If a planet is actually in conjunction with the ascendant (within the same degree as the ascendant), it then becomes vitally important in its effect on the personality, to the extent of being as important as the sun. The fire signs of Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are noted for their energy, enthusiasm and optimism.
Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn ascendants are usually considered calm and stress-resistant individuals.
The air signs of Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are noted for their communication skills. When an air sign is on the ascendant the subject is friendly and sociable, but also independent and somewhat detached.
The water signs of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are noted for their emotion, intuition and feeling.
