The rising sign, or ascendant, is the Zodiac sign that was rising eastern of the horizon when a person was born. The ascendant is known as the mask one wears when meeting new people. It takes in both appearance and personality, which is why some may identify with their ascendant more than they do with their sun sign. The rising sign represents the first personality traits people exhibit naturally or in uncomfortable situations.
If you are unsure of what your ascendant is, calculate your birth chart to determine your rising sign. Time of birth is required.
Aquarius risings come off as very unique and original. These people are their own individuals and they won't let you overlook that. Regularly asked for advice, people with this rising sign have an astute nature. They are curious and very learned in both science and metaphysics. Anything that involves the advancement of society will grab the attention of an Aquarius Ascendant.
It's difficult to surprise an Aquarius Ascendant. They've seen everything, or at least strive to make you think so. Truth be told, they frequently appreciate surprising others. Not that they are naturally flashy, but rather they like to subtly shock others. A few Aquarius natives born with Aquarius on their Ascendant can also be slightly disparaging and provocative.
Most Aquarius risings are pretty friendly and well-liked. Their quirky personalities are accepted by most people easily. They typically approach others with an open mind; individuals from all different backgrounds are treated as equals by this sign. Furthermore, their cool and objective interest in the world around them appeals to many crowds. Aquarius risings can be somewhat standoffish while also coming off as kind and humanitarian due to their deep curiosity.
Often viewed as original and independent children, Aquarius Ascendants frequently feel somewhat "special" or "uncommon" all through their lives. They frequently feel like they are outsiders, and their capacity to watch and conclude is almost uncanny. Likewise, they're also proficient in getting things to work, even if the task seems unusual. This separates them from others as good leaders and managers.
The Ascendant also uncovers the physical characteristics and even a person's choice of clothes, as it demonstrates how individuals present themselves to the world. With Aquarius here, natives occasionally have a quirky manner, and some dress in a somewhat "different" way – not so much as to make them completely stand out in a crowd, but just enough to show their originality.
Since these individuals appear to be so open to new thoughts, it might amaze others when they experience the Aquarius rising's occasional stubborness. Aquarius is a fixed sign, after all. The rising sign shows how people respond to new circumstances, and with Aquarius Ascendants, they may be a bit reluctant when it comes to change, which may give a false representation of their progressive nature. There's an inflexibility with Aquarian risings, and, now and again, a habit of forcing their opinions on others.
With their deep interest in the future progression of humans, some Aquarius risings may overlook the more personal wants of loved ones. They are typically attracted to partners who have fearlessness and passion.
It is important to note that the Aquarius Ascendant is modified by the position of Uranus in a person's chart. Calculate your personal birth chart to learn more.
