Read on to continue learning about the Aquarius rising native (also commonly known as “Capricorn ascendant”) in astrology!
Below you will find information about the personality tendencies, physical attributes, spiritual growth lessons, and consciousness evolution opportunities for the individual with an Aquarius ascendant (rising) in their natal chart.
The rising sign in a birth chart is different from the sun sign (which is determined by birthdate), as it is determined by the exact time of birth of the individual. The rising sign in a birth chart has the function of showing the individual’s instinctual reaction to life, especially to new things, and their reflex way of being. Just as we are unable to see what we look like without a mirror, in the same way we are unable to clearly see the way that our ascendant sign behaves with objectivity. The rising sign, ascendant, or ASC is the energy that we are learning about, through instinctual action, which is then mirrored to us via the relationships that show up in our descendant. (The descendant or DSC is directly opposing the first house and acts as a balance between self and others.
For the Aquarius rising person, the understanding of breaking social patterns and honouring their uniqueness is “rising” into their consciousness.
The individual with an Aquarius ascendant is learning, through instinctual action, about honouring their unique perspective, and how fracturing established patterns will help humanity to evolve.
AQUARIUS IN RELATIONSHIPS
Through the crucible of relationship, the Aquarius rising individual is confronted with people who confidently express their giftings, affirm themselves and are comfortable being in the limelight. This interaction with the radiant attention grabbing of others forces them inwards where they go on an inner journey to discover “Who do I resonate with?” And “What is unique about me that will be of benefit to the group?” And “Where do I see opportunities to do things differently?”.
These questions will, necessarily, lead them to an understanding of where (with which groups and communities) they feel a sense of resonance, and what it is that they possess that will fracture established patterns and bring in innovation and different perspectives.
AQUARIUS ASCENDANT (RISING) PERSONALITY
Individuals with Aquarius on their ascendant tend to be people who are offbeat and come off as being rebels. They have a unique way of perceiving the world and are very rooted in the mental plane, which can sometimes make them come off as being cold or aloof. The realm of ideas and inventions occupy them, and they are often known as being revolutionaries. Because Aquarius is an outer planet, associated with the collective, the Aquarian rising individual will have a unique perspective and futuristic ideal about how things could be advanced and ameliorated. They are sometimes perceived by others as being “out there”, however the objective of this energy is to fracture existing patterns and so this counter cultural direction is necessary in order to innovate the changes they have come to earth to initiate.
AQUARIUS RISING APPEARANCE
The sign of Aquarius rules the ankles, shins and circulatory system. Because the Aquarius archetype is also connected to the Galactic, the association with the ankles shows us how this energy connects the earth and the body. The connection to the circulatory system is apparent when we consider that the Aquarian rising energy is not a personal one, but rather a collective one and is intended to support the evolution of the larger collective, even if it is expressed through a single individual.
WHAT IS THE ZODIAC SIGN SYMBOL FOR AQUARIUS
The glyph for the Aquarius archetype is a bucket of water being poured out. The “water” in the bucket is the innovation and inspired change that is brought to earth via this energy.
AQUARIUS RISING CELEBRITIES
Barack Obama and David Bowie are just a couple of the celebrities whose faces and personalities you can look up to get a better idea of the Aquarius Ascendant energy.
Learning about the ascendant sign is an excellent way to understand your own reflex responses, and why you approach life in the manner that you do.
As humans, our instinctual responses tend towards the negative, so gaining a deep understanding of both the higher and lower expressions of our ascendant energy is an excellent tool in growing in consciousness.
