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.
Scorpio risings have a considerable measure of quality. There is something about them that tells the world that they are not to be pushed around. They demand respect, and occasionally, fear. Scorpio rising individuals can be peaceful or uproarious, but they always appear to be determined and powerful.
People either love or hate Scorpio Ascendants – they do not go unnoticed. Truth be told, some of them are confused when they get strong responses from others. They can typically see directly through individuals, looking past superficiality. This can be very scary to few and fascinating to others. Scorpio risings, in their dealings with others, search for answers by searching for some hidden meaning in everything. Surface details are disregarded when they are feeling out people and their situations.
Scorpio Ascendants may care about their privacy so much that they become paranoid. They need to be in control of their situation and specialize in strategy. They plan out their moves painstakingly and purposely, depending on their great skill of understanding others and circumstances.
Scorpio rising people are attracted to practical, down-to-earth people. It is very important that their partner is reliable. They search for full commitment and have little tolerance with flighty people.
It is important to note that the Scorpio Ascendant is modified by the position of Pluto in a person's chart. Calculate your personal birth chart to learn more.
