The sun sign is not the only sign you should know. If you are interested in astrology, you will already know that not only this sign exists. In your astral chart you can know what all your signs are and the positions that the planets had in those signs on the day you were born. Everything matters, but it is true that normally the signs that are paid the most attention are the solar, lunar and ascendant. In this article we are going to see what your rising sign reveals about your personality.
The rising sign is the sign that is on the horizon at the moment you are born. Therefore, to know it, you need to know your exact time of birth. To be clear and differentiate them well, the sun sign is your deepest self, the moon sign is how you manage your emotions, and the rising sign is related to how you present yourself to the world and how others see you. There is much more behind each sign, but thus, by way of introduction, this will help you to have things clear.
The ascendant is the first impression you make on others. At first contact, people perceive you as their ascendant. If you tell someone, without hardly knowing you, to try to guess your sign (referring to your sun sign), they will probably guess your rising sign without knowing it.
