What Is My Rising Sign?
You probably already know your sun sign — it’s the one you refer to when someone asks your Zodiac sign. But do you know your rising sign? Your rising sign is just as important (if not more important) than your sun sign. Rising signs, unlike your Zodiac sign or sun sign, influence your whole birth chart, which means it influences your whole personality. While the sun sign represents the person we show the world, the rising sign represents the person who we really are, in public and in private.
Knowing your rising sign, along with knowing other parts of your birth chart like your moon sign and Venus sign, can give you a better understanding of your true self and how you relate to the world around you. There’s a reason why your sun sign, your moon sign, and your rising sign are referred to as your “Big Three”— together, they can reveal the full picture of who you are.

Your rising sign — also known as the Ascendant sign — is the sign that was rising over the horizon at your exact time of birth. The rising sign determines the layout of your entire birth chart, and it also determines your first house, which represents your self, your appearance and physical body, your personality, and the first impression that people have of you. Rising signs can fall into each of the four elements: air, earth, fire, and water. The element of your rising sign, along with the sign itself, can give immense insight into your disposition and character.
