With Aquarius rising, there is something unusual or eccentric about the appearance or the attitude. The behavior can be quite erratic, but the gaze will be penetrating. The "mad professor" look is fairly typical, for men and women. The Aquarian Ascendant likes to mingle with groups of like-minded, odd individuals but can be emotionally reserved. This will be modified by planets in the First House and the position of Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, in the natal chart.
The Pisces Ascendant will have a dreamy, vague, faraway look. But the attitude will be one of great compassion and kindness until they lose faith in someone. Then they can become very "cold fish". Pisces rules the feet, and there is usually something noticeable, such as very small feet, or very tender feet that have difficulty finding comfortable shoes. This will be modified by planets in the First House or by the position of Neptune, the ruler of Pisces, in the natal chart.
With Scorpio in the Ascendant, the eyes are very penetrating, the body compact and the movements economical. Scorpio does not waste energy, but there is a sense of great reserves of energy beneath the surface. The attitude is often secretive, and the emotions held under wraps, only revealed to those closest. This will be modified by planets in the First House, and by the position of Pluto, the ruler of Scorpio, in the chart.
With Virgo rising, the presentation is neat and precise, with no flamboyant clothes or loud gestures. The features may be unremarkable, the attitude fussy and perfectionist, but once past the barrier of reserve, there will be a delightful earthy sense of humor. This will be modified by any planets in the First House and by the position of Mercury, the ruler of Virgo, in the birth chart
With Gemini rising, the body movements will be quick, the hands always active and the speech rapid, jumping from one subject to another in a matter of minutes. The Geminian image is of a bright butterfly, flitting from one thing to another. This will be modified by planets in the First House and the placement of Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, in the chart.
The Sagittarian Ascendant is very leggy, with long flexible arms and mobile faces. The attitude is one of enthusiasm and optimism, with an outgoing approach that is hard to resist. The Sagittarian Ascendant likes to meet people from all walks of life and bounds into conversations without a second thought. This will be modified by planets in the First House and by the position of jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius, in the natal chart.
With Libra in the Ascendant, the appearance is attractive and refined. There is a tendency to dress well but not too flamboyantly. The manner will be charming, with the air of a diplomat or mediator. There will usually be another person present as Libra does not like to be alone. This will be modified by planets in the First House, and by the position of Venus, the ruler of Libra, in the chart.
With the limiting nature of Capricorn, the appearance will be small in stature, very reserved and preferring to dress in dark colored clothing. The attiitude will be serious and responsible. The feet and hands may be quite small. The speech may be clipped and critical, and there may be a tendency to arthritis and brittle bones. This will be modified by planets in the First House and by the position of Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, in the natal chart.
When Cancer is the Rising Sign, there is a "moony" look, with a round face, wide round eyes and a vivid imagination. The movements may be slow and they will sidle round an issue or situation rather than come at it directly. This will be modified by planets in the First House, and by the position of Cancer's ruler, The Moon, in the natal chart.
With Leo in the Ascendant, you can expect a proud carriage, a broad chest and a good head of hair. Leo likes to be noticed, so there will be a tendency to dress to be seen, and the voice will be deep and resonant. This will be modified by planets in the First House and the position of the Sun, the ruler of Leo, in the chart.
When Taurus is the rising sign, the physical body may be stocky and powerful with broad shoulders. The movements may be slow and deliberate, the speech musical. Venus rules this sign, so there will be attractive features. This will be modified by planets in the First House and the placement of the ruler Venus in the chart.
If Aries is in the Ascendant, the projected image will be energetic, athletic and outspoken. There may be a tendency to head injuries (Aries rules the head). The physical features and other characteristics will be modified by planets in the First House and the position of Mars, the ruler of Aries, in the chart.
The Ascendant (aka; Rising Sign) and the First House cusp are all one and the same. It describes your outward appearance and the image you like to project. This is your survival personna. The first face you show the world. It tells what you project as a social being trying to make your place in the human hierarchy. Note that the first house is a major indicator of physical image. This is also the house of first impressions.
Everything is filtered through the rising sign, so besides personality and image, the principle that the sign represents will affect nearly every area of life in some manner. This will be modified by any planets in the first house, and/or the placement of the Rising Sign's ruler in the chart. In fact, all chart factors must be blended together to create the whole person.
