Read on to continue learning about the Pisces rising native (also commonly known as “Pisces 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 a Pisces ascendant (rising) in their natal chart.
For the individual with Pisces as their rising sign, the understanding of divine love and their connection to everything is “rising” into their consciousness.
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.)
The individual with a Pisces ascendant is learning, through instinctual action, how they can live in a way that will acknowledge and enhance their connection to the life force around them, allowing them to understand deeply their part in the “everything”.
Through the crucible of relationship, the Pisces rising individual will encounter individuals who project a need for perfection onto them, and who are very concerned with the practical details of everyday life. This challenging interaction will present a hard time, pushing them towards an inwards journey where they will be forced to inwardly consider “What is the grander purpose of all of the work that I do?” And “Why should I tend to the practical realities of life? To what end? What is this all for?”
This inner questioning will, necessarily, lead them back to understanding how their practical life can be a support to their spiritual pursuits. They will grow in their sense of oneness and wholeness, being able to flourish in the understanding and acceptance of their own inner divinity.
PISCES RISING PERSONALITY
Pisces is the last of the zodiac signs in the 12 houses and represents the ending of the cycle and the return to Source. Because the Pisces archetype is a water sign and is a mutable sign too, it has to do with the realm of emotions. Individuals who had Pisces on the eastern horizon at their birth time will have a strong natural intuitive sense, psychic abilities and a tendency to merge with the emotions of the people around them. The person with Pisces on their ascendant sign will be a sensitive individual with a strong imagination. The Piscean energy is a collective one, like Aquarius, and as such have open minds and a natural focus on the collective. This energy has an innate desire to experience the bliss of being one with all of creation (their sensitivity to everything around them can be a real challenge) making the Pisces rising individual especially susceptible to things like addiction and other dissociative behaviours. What, at first, was a good time can easily become a means to escaping the energetic intensity that these people tend to live with. These are people that, because they feel everything, have a tendency towards self- sacrifice and martyrdom and have a tendency to daydream and be only half present as they make their way through life. For the Pisces rising individual, it is a very good thing to have daily practices and rituals that will allow them to be consciously connected to Source, while at the same time having set daily routines which can act as a strong point of earthly grounding.
WHAT BODY PART DOES PISCES RISING RULE
Individuals with Pisces on their ascendant are typically known for having big dreamy eyes that, on first impression, seem to take in everything. The Pisces archetype rules the feet, and as such there is often an emphasis on the feet of the Pisces rising individual.
PISCES RISING SYMBOL
The symbol for the Pisces archetype is 2 fish swimming in opposite directions. These fish represent the duality of life on earth; being aware of the spiritual reality of everything and the presence of a higher power in everything. While, at the same time being immersed in the physical reality of life on earth. The water that these fish swim in represent the great cosmos: the deep, ever moving, sometimes crashing waves. The cool breezes that bring refreshment and inspiring ocean views; while simultaneously having the ability to consume both people and land.
PISCES RISING CELEBRITIES
Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Mary Tyler Moore, Billie Eilish, Demi Moore, and Gwyneth Paltrow are just some of the celebrities from the United States whose faces and personalities you can look up to get a better idea of the Pisces ascendant energy. Astro-Seek is a great place and excellent resource to look up the charts of celebrities to further your astrological studies.
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.
