Read on to continue learning about the Aries rising native (also commonly known as “Aries 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 Aries ascendant (or Aries 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.)
The individual with a Scorpio ascendant is learning, through instinctual action, how to trust in their own inherent abilities to navigate life instead of putting their power outside of themselves.
Through the crucible of relationship, the Scorpio rising individual encounters individuals who provide materially, but not emotionally. Through this experience, the person is forced to go inwards and ask themselves “how is this experience of being denied emotional proximity in exchange for material possessions disempowering me?”.
Through this questioning, the Scorpio rising individual realizes that, actually, they are quite capable of managing their own needs in life because what they have is inherent to them: it is IN them. When this happens, the individual becomes able to relinquish the relationships, possessions and material goods that chain them because they understand that they have inside of them already whatever it is they are seeking.
SCORPIO ASCENDANT (RISING) PERSONALITY
The Scorpio sign in the zodiac is earth (having to do with the emotional body) and fixed. The individual with Scorpio as their ascendant will have a natural psychic ability to read what is going on beneath the words that someone speaks. People often describe their energy as intense, and they are prone to ups and downs because of that natural intensity. These are people who feel things very deeply (Scorpio is associated with the planet Pluto, which is connected to the underworld) and require emotional transparency in relationships. Scorpio energy tends towards the occult and things that are more mysterious and below the surface.
SCORPIO RISING APPEARANCE
Individuals with Scorpio on their ascendant are typically known for having intense and piercing eyes. They also tend to have sharp facial features. Like the scorpion, individuals with this sign on their ascendant tend to have physical strength and stamina. Consider the scorpion animal which is known for its tenacity and ability to withstand physical injury with its tough exterior and calculating defence mechanisms.
WHICH BODY PART DOES THE SCORPIO SIGN RULE
The sign of Scorpio rules the genitals. When we are dealing with the scorpio archetype, we are talking about deep emotional enmeshment. Humans often experience this through emotions and through sexuality, which then makes the appropriateness of the connection to the genitals very clear.
SCORPIO ZODIAC SIGN SYMBOL
The symbol for the Scorpio zodiac is a scorpion, which is known for being nearly impossible to kill and for protecting itself fiercely.
SCORPIO RISING CELEBRITIES
Jim Carrey, Diana Ross and Katy Perry are just a couple of the celebrities whose faces and personalities you can look up to get a better idea of the Scorpio 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.
