What does an Ascendant in Aries Reveal?

Your rising sign, also called the Ascendant, is the Zodiac sign or constellation on the Earth’s eastern horizon at the time of your birth. It is the first house of your natal chart. This sign is just as important as your moon sign and your sun sign. The rising sign rules your outward appearance to others. Therefore, you can behave much differently than what your Sun sign description shows if the Sun and Ascendant were in different constellations when you were born.

Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac, and the baby of all the Zodiac signs. Those with an Ascendant in Aries appear to be a bit child like compared to the other signs. They thrive on competition, success, and any challenges that come their way. Aries Ascendant people are also determined to succeed in all their lifelong endeavors. They will never give up on a dream or idea once they have decided to go after it. A person with Aries rising is attractive and always has an attractive mate. They are strong willed, and can be a bit narcissistic.

Those who were born at a time when the Aries was rising in the eastern sky have the most accurate natal charts. This means that each astrological house is aligned with the astrological planet that rules the Zodiac sign represented by that house. For example, Aries is the first sign in the Zodiac, and an Aries Ascendant means that Aries is the first house of this person’s birth chart. Taurus is the second sign of the Zodiac, so Taurus is the second house of this person’s birth chart. Gemini is the third, and so on. This is only the case with a person who has Aries as a rising sign, but not necessarily with an Aries moon sign, or an Aries sun sign (the Zodiac sign most people refer to when considering their day of birth).

A natal chart (or birth chart) is a map of the heavens at the exact moment a person is born. It is separated by twelve houses, each aligned with a constellation (or Zodiac sign) in the sky. Each house has a ruling astrological planet, and represents twelve different sections of life priorities.
