What is an ascendant sign?
Your ascendant/rising sign is the sign rising over the Eastern Horizon at the time of your birth.
What does my ascendant sign tell about me?
Your ascendant sign represents the “facade” you put on in front of others. It’s people’s first impression of you.
What does it mean if both my sun and rising signs are the same?
It means that how people view you is the same as how you are on the inside.
You come across as impulsive, energetic and you often act without thinking. You hate limitations and restraints as you are rather aggressive and prefer charging at your goals. You are competitive, sometimes to a fault.
You come across as cynical and cautious. You like taking things slow as patience gives you the stability that you like. You are resistant to change and fiercely loyal to not only people but also your ideas. It can be difficult for people to convince you.
You come across as curious, almost about everything; frequently questioning and digging for knowledge. People usually describe you as the person with two personalities and being fickle. You like to keep things light-hearted instead of being overly-involved.
You come across as very protective of yourself. If attacked, you rarely attack back first; preferring to protect yourself. You can be easily influenced by the people around you and your surroundings so you should try staying away from negativity.
You come across as stubborn, fun-loving and generous. You tend to over-estimate a lot, sometimes even yourself. You hate failing in anything, especially when others are there to see it. Once motivated, you do not hesitate to reach for your goals.
You come across as intelligent, shy and picky. You are rarely happy with the way situations or people are, you have a constant need to make them better or push them to be better. You like being useful; slacking makes you uneasy.
You come across as polite, harmonious and pleasant. You may have trouble in dealing with conflicts at times as you are the kind to keep things peaceful most of the time. Sometimes, you have a great need to be accepted and approved by others. You are diplomatic and fair, always seeing both sides to situations.
You come across as determined and intense. You rarely take things lightly. You don’t give your trust to others easily but when you do, you are comitted. You love success and don’t mind the competition. You are emotional, but you rarely show it.
You come across as curious and enthusiastic. You are always active and restless; you hate being restricted to a place, even though you know it provides you stability and security. You are direct and opinionated but have a great sense of humor.
You come across as serious and conservative. You are competent in what you do and rarely depend on others or push responsibilites. You like being on the safe side; preferring not to break rules. However, you have a cheery and cheerful personality.
You come across as unique and likable. You are usually the observers and sometimes people mistake you as cold and aloof. You appreciate freedom and like having control of all aspects in your life. If not, you can become rebellious.
You come across as dreamy and sometimes, non-realistic. You may tend to avoid reality as a self-protection. Logic doesn’t appeal so much to you as you are aware that most of the important things aren’t based on logic but rather, emotions and feelings. Emotionally, you tend to be hurt easily due to your sentimental nature.
When I was first told of this, I was creeped out by its accuracy.

One day, a scorpion and a frog met on the bank of a large river. The scorpion wanted to cross the river, but it was wide and swift. Left with no other choice, he decided to ask the frog for help getting across the stream.
Suspicious, the frog asked, “But how would I know that you wouldn’t try to sting me?”
“Because if I do,” the scorpion replied, “then I would die too, for I cannot swim!”
The frog nodded, and now satisfied, agreed to help the scorpion across the river. And so, the scorpion got onto the frog’s back after the frog settled into the water.
Halfway across the river, the frog suddenly felt a sharp sting in his back and, out of the corner of his eye, saw the scorpion remove his stinger from the frog’s back. A deadening numbness began to creep into his limbs.
“You fool!” croaked the frog, “Now we shall both die! Why on earth did you do that?”
The scorpion shrugged, and did a little jig on the drownings frog’s back.
“Because I am a scorpion, and it is my nature.”
