Rising Sign

Definition of Rising Sign

Your rising sign is also called your ascendant sign. It is a point in astrology that makes up one-third of your primal triad. The rising sign is on the cusp of the first house of your birth chart. It is interpreted along with the planets as it has a vital role to play in your personality. It's the first impression that you give to people, and understanding the qualities of your rising sign will reveal a lot about the mask you wear when you're dealing with the general public.
