Read on to continue learning about the Sagittarius rising native (also commonly known as “Sagittarius 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 Sagittarius ascendant (or Sagittarius 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 sagittarius rising man and sagittarius rising woman, the understanding of self identity and emotional security is “rising” into their consciousness.
The individual with a Sagittarius ascendant is learning, through instinctual action, what their core beliefs and understandings about life are.
SAGITTARIUS IN RELATIONSHIPS
Through the crucible of relationship, the Sagittarius rising individual is confronted with relationships where there is an abundance of conversation, opinions, knowledge and perspectives. This confrontation causes the individual to acknowledge that they’ve encountered a mass of information, but what is true for them? They are then forced to filter and assimilate that information into a system that is in line with their beliefs. “What do I know to be true?” Is what they are forced to ask themselves.
SAGITTARIUS RISING PERSONALITY
Individuals with Sagittarius on their ascendant tend to be people who are opinionated and like to speak out about their beliefs and how they see the world.
They tend to be people who are interested in growing through learning and higher education (Jupiter is the ruling planet), and especially in understanding the different cultures and belief systems towards them. They will have a special penchant towards religion and issues of faith.
Individuals with Sagittarius on their ascendant (or Jupiter in their first house) tend to also be optimistic, lively and dramatic.
These are people who need to feel that they have a sense of freedom and adventure in their lives.
SAGITTARIUS PHYSICAL TRAITS
Typically, people with Sagittarius on their ascendant have bodies that are long and lean, with a specific emphasis on the strength of legs and lower half. It is said that they tend to have faces that are more oval shaped.
WHICH BODY PART DOES THE SAGITTARIUS SIGN RULE
The sign of Sagittarius rules the legs, thighs and hips.
WHAT DOES THE SAGITTARIUS SIGN LOOK LIKE
This sign rules the 9th house of the natural zodiac, from the degrees 240-270. The ruling planet for the Sagittarius sign is Jupiter. The symbol for the Sagittarius archetype is a centaur (which is a half horse- half human being) who is holding an arrow positioned to be shot into the distance. This focus on the “far away” speaks of the underlying desire of the Sagittarius energy to want to look beyond the horizon and see what there is out there to learn, see and be experienced. This is an energy that is open to exploration and adventure, having a deep desire to experience what is subjectively unknown to them. For this reason, the Sagittarius energy is associated with distant travel, far away lands and foreign peoples.
SAGITTARIUS RISING CELEBRITIES
Goldie Hawn, Jamie Lee Curtis and Princess Diana are just a few of the celebrities whose faces and personalities you can look up to get a better idea of the Sagittarius 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.
