What does an Ascendant in Leo Reveal?

This sign is just as important as your Moon and Sun signs. The rising sign is usually what the world sees in you. In ancient astrology, the rising sign was used as your personality guide as opposed to the Sun sign. The rising sign is the beginning of the first house in your natal which is also known as the birth chart. A natal chart is a picture of the sky at the exact moment you were born and consists of numerous astrological planets, the aspects between them, and the twelve houses they occupy. Your rising sign is the Zodiac sign or constellation that was rising over the eastern horizon at the exact moment of your birth. The rising rules your inner child and your emotions, and represents the way the world sees you. Therefore, you can feel and sometimes behave much differently than what your Sun sign indicates if the Sun and Earth’s eastern horizon were in different constellations when you were born.

Leo is the fifth sign of the Zodiac, and is a fire sign. This Zodiac sign is ruled by the Sun. Those with an Ascendant in Leo are creative communicators and are far from boring creatures. They tend to be dynamic, like the Sun, and are very intelligent. These souls are very proud and hard working. They enjoy being in the spot light and often choose careers in the arts to enhance their creative energy, or in the legal community to expose their confidence and intellect. Their career is most likely a priority in their lives.

Just like the Lion in the wild protects his den, those who were born when Leo was rising in the eastern sky are very protective of their homes and loved ones. They also set excellent examples for their children and dedicate themselves to teaching their offspring to ensure responsibility and intelligence. People with Leo rising are often very interested and heavily involved in religion or the occult. They are highly spiritual and extremely determined and head strong regarding their beliefs. They are confident and classy.

      Hmmm... You didn't go into as much detail with Leo Rising as you did with Scorpio Rising. I would've liked to read more on Leo Rising's physical description and fighting skill. I heard THIS sign and not Scorpio Rising was actually the physically strongest.
