The Ascendant or Rising Zodiac Sign

The Ascendant or Rising Sign.

Appearance, Temperament, General Character.

That part of the sign *) which at birth was rising on the eastern horizon, gives the form of the body, the temperament and the character in general, modified, however, by the signs in which ☉ and ☽ are placed and by the influence of those planets which occupy a prominent place in the horoscope e.g. in the ascendant or in M. C.

Astrology makes it possible to determine the relationship with children in a horoscope. The cusp of the fifth house, its ruler and the planets in it describe your attitude towards children. And, in particular, points to the possible first child. Whether you want a child, it depends on many factors, and the horoscope as a whole should be carefully studied.

Many of those who take up the study of astrology complain of the great obscurity of the books of study, of the many technical terms, incomprehensible to the laity, and especially of the difficulties of the calculations, which latter are unsurmountable for those who have no knowledge of mathematics and cosmology.

The transits of the planets are the daily motions of them as they move through the Zodiac around the Sun; thus: Jupiter moves through the twelve houses of Zodiac in a little less than twelve years and will transit the twelve houses of the horoscope and the radix or place of all the other planets.
