So How Would a Rising Sign Affect the Aries Ego?
SO, WHAT IS A RISING SIGN?
OK. There are 12 basic Sun Signs, and they are clustered around your 24 hour day. The planets Mercury, Venus, (Earth), Mars, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto. As the planets move they take their positions around the circle. When you are born, you are tagged within the 30 day "sign". So, let's say you are an Aries.
When you awake, you catch the sun's morning rays, at sun set, the earth keeps spinning for its next turn ---- THE RISING. But as the earth keeps turning EACH 2 HOURS, a new sign "appears" at the EASTERN HORIZON. Babies are certainly born, ANY TIME.
My eldest was born in 1971 as a Virgo. He was born at 6:31 AM. SO, HIS RISING SIGN is VIRGO RISING.
My second was a darling girl --- a Cancer. She was born at 8:30 PM on a hot summer night. When Daddy picked her up and kissed her, what was on the Eastern Horizon? In the dark, right out there --- Aquarius. She had Aquarius rising.
What is the Divine Doing?
WHAT IS THE DIVINE DOING? Making you a more specific, more clearly specialized individual. It is the HOUR of your birth that determines where your Mars in Leo is to be placed ----- in the 12th house the 8th house or the 4th house.
What are the HOUSES? There are 12 houses. Imagine 12 aspects of life -- Home Health, Travel, Career, Hopes. I won't list all 12 here.
Imagine a CIRCUS WHEEL. On a given day the planets are in their position in one of the 12 seats. when you are born, at that moment, the Circus Wheel STOPS.
THERE! RIGHT THEN IN THAT MOMENT, TAKE A SELFIE IN YOUR MIND'S EYE! YOUR SPECIFIC IDENTITY FOR THIS LIFE TIME HAS BEEN EMBLAZONED IN THE HEAVENS.
Where is the Rising Sign at the Circus Wheel? As a baby, you don't know. A Doctor or a Parent has to tell you later in your life, OR IT IS DOCUMENTED.
The Rising Sign has to be determined. At the 1st House, you "mathematically" turn the Circus Wheel, and the placing of that Rising Sign determines WHAT HOUSE receives the energy, significance, (aspects) of that placement. Your "Mars in Cancer" goes to the right house.
So, you see how your individuality AND your chart gets determined by your Rising Sign.
In doing interpretations for people I have always used this TWO LENSES approach. Think of the Sun and Rising as your INNER and OUTER, your PRIVATE and PUBLIC self.

Compatibility Is The Goal.. Be wary in your Approach!
This series on AstroCompatibility will cover all of the potential matchups in the Zodiac. We will begin with Aries and Aries.
Aries - Aries -
"All the Rams That Chase the Ewe Sheep are Determined There'll be New Sheep and the Ewe Sheep aren't even keeping score". That is from the Musical "Carousel", and we might as well start out with the simple Springtime truth. These two are full of life. But it is really hard to see them together. I mean, who would be the one not to try to take charge? Since both the man and the woman have the Spring time energy, one could only imagine that one of the Aries would be a little less headstrong than the other, maybe a mitigating softening Moon placement, and a humble rising sign, but really, this is a very hard match to imagine with long term success.
Positive Postulate: Since Aries and Aries means that they would share sun sign qualities and interests, it is possible that conflict would be low. Positively speaking they could have an opportunity not to be selfish, just because they would be on the same page so much. This is my counter balancing factor. In spite of the conflict aspects to this union, you have to assume that many potential problems would never arise just because of their similarities.
Romance Recommendation: Aries and Aries would have a very high romance factor, as long as they don't knock each othe out deciding who would be dominate.
Conflict Quotient: Aries and Aries would rate low here. Who would listen? When would one party maintain a calm about them while they hammered about the key details carefully? They might not even break for the bells to end the rounds. You have to ask the question whether a couple knows how to fight so that the relatioship lasts. .
Peace Parlay: Life in the end is repetitive and mundane, and so is Romance itself. This factor asks the question: "Can we be bored together over the long term?" Aries and Aries could probably be quiet and mundane together because these people are pretty lively and sparkly types. They would get a high rating here. The pulse rate in the relationship would stay on the radar screen. Good results here.
Keep Up The Interest Graph: Aries and Aries, as is implied in the previous paragraph would definitely keep the interest up. Not just romantically, but conversation, hobbies, outside interests and cultural lives.
Seven Year Itchiness: There are some signs that by their nature are more stable in their love interests and family concerns as time goes on. Others are not. I would not rate the Aries essentially to be ultra stable. When the 7 Year Itch came along, they both might be scratching.
ASTROCOMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 50% Long Term - 85% Short Term. That means that the Aries/Aries combo is one that probably would not make it, or have an average American chance of surviving over the years. But in the short term, one can easily see a short dramatic romantic movie being shot for all the novelty, joy and life of the story.
The Musical Carousel (Rodgers and Hammerstein - 1945)
Even though Aries is set in Mach/April, there is nothing more Ram-like
Than These Lyrics:
"All the Rams that chase the Ewe Sheep
Are Determined There'll be New Sheep"
And the Ewe Sheep Aren't even Keeping Score!
Because Its June!"
