Understanding the Rising Sign

"The sun sign represents our ego and drive in the world, while the moon sign dictates our emotional nature and the parts of ourselves that we internalize," explains astrologer Lisa Stardust to PEOPLE magazine. "The rising or ascendant is what we are revealing and letting people see, so it dictates the energy we put out there."

  • Perception: Reflects the traits others see in you
  • Key to Self-Comprehension: Consider it the key to unlocking your map and comprehending yourself and the world around you.
  • Identity and Experiences: Provides insights into one's identity and experiences throughout life.
  • Astrological Chart: Sets off how we view our astrology chart.
  • Life Plans: Helps put life plans into motion by dictating temperaments, desires, and the timing of goal attainment.
