How to Understand a Pisces Rising Sign

Updated on July 1, 2013

What does an Ascendant in Pisces Reveal?

In ancient Astrology, the rising sign was used as your personality guide instead of the Sun sign. The rising sign is the beginning of the first house in your birth chart. A birth chart is a map of the sky at the precise moment you were born. Your birth chart is made up of twelve houses, each with a planetary ruler and control specific areas of your life. The placement of the astrological planets in your chart also indicates personality traits, priorities, and explanations for the actions of an individual. The planetary aspects between each other are contributors as well. The birth chart is also known to be called the natal chart.

Your rising sign is the Zodiac sign or constellation that was rising in the east at the time of your birth. The rising sign rules your inner child and emotions and is a description of how the outside world views you. It is possible that you can behave much differently than indicated by your Sun sign alone, especially if the Sun and Ascendant were in different constellations when you were born. The Ascendant is just as important as your Moon sign and Sun sign.

Those who were born at a time when the Pisces was rising in the eastern sky have a home life of activity, communication, creative, and fun. Although they can appear to be shy in the outside world, they are chatty and entertaining in the comfort of their homes. People with Pisces rising are very romantic people and love their partners with a deep, emotional, love. They demand a lot of attention from their partners and will become temperamental if they don’t get enough. They usually choose a partner who is realistic, responsible, and down to Earth. Many times there are issues with their fathers and it can be quite difficult for a Pisces rising to get along with his or her dad.

Pisces is the twelfth sign of the Zodiac, and is a water sign. Those with an Ascendant in Pisces enjoy isolation, tranquility, and spirituality. They are the Monks of the Zodiac. Even though they enjoy their sanctuary, they still communicate with authority and can be very persuasive. Others are compelled to listen when they speak. Pisces Ascendant people make great clergy, educators, writers, astrologers, or spiritual gurus. They aren’t fans of authority and enjoy working at their own pace, or completely alone. Pisces rising has a “live and let live” type of attitude and prefer not to be controlled, as well as not controlling others. They are also the world’s conspiracy theorists.

Have you ever had your birth chart interpreted by a professional Astrologer?
