What does your rising sign mean?

Also known as your ascendant, your rising sign is the zodiac sign that was above the eastern horizon during the time of your birth.

Your rising sign is a part of the three most looked at astrology sign placements in modern-day astrology. The other two being the location of the Sun and Moon on your birth chart.

Previously there was a much more heavy focus on just your Sun sign placement when it came to how your personality was formed. But now, using a combination of the Sun, Moon and your rising sign you can understand a more accurate description of your persona.

Rising signs also give a deeper insight into how you are first perceived by others and how you view the outside world.
