What is a Rising Sign and why is it important?
The Rising Sign or Ascendant is the sign that is on the eastern horizon at the exact time of birth. It is also the sign that rules the first house of a person's chart. The birth time of the individual, and each house represents a basic field of activity. The meanings of the houses are modified when a planet occupies them. The rotation of the Earth causes the signs and the planets to pass through all twelve houses each day, one approximately every two hours.
