Read on to continue learning about the Virgo rising native (also commonly known as “Virgo 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 Virgo ascendant (or Virgo 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.)
VIRGO AND RELATIONSHIPS
The individual with a Virgo ascendant is learning, through instinctual action, how to build daily routines and processes that will help to bring dignity to their own life existence and that of others, and that will support the practical goals that they have for their lives.
Through the crucible of relationship, the Virgo rising individual will find themselves confronted with relationships where the other person is actively attempting to escape their existence (usually through things like addiction), or is in extraordinary need which puts the Virgo rising individual in service mode.
This confrontation will lead them inwards where they will be forced to ask themselves questions like “What is it that I need for myself in order to be well?” And “How can I support the needs of others that I see around me?” And also “What are the steps that need to be taken in order to build a life that feels satisfying to me?”
Through this search, the Virgo rising man or Virgo rising woman will come to see the processes that they need to put in place in their own lives in order to protect and secure their own wellness.
They will also come to an understanding of how they, as an individual, are connected to the collective, and how their actions can contribute to collective growth.
VIRGO RISING PERSONALITY
The Virgo sign is ruled by Mercury, and as such is an Air sign and earth, meaning that it has to do with the mental arena and centers around the tangible aspects of life.
The Virgo rising individual will have a tendency towards health related matters and will have a natural focus on physical wellness. (If that’s you, and you’re interested in natural remedies, you might appreciate THIS article on oregano oil!) While it seems that the Virgo energy is largely focused on external construction and progress, the inner pursuit behind the outer progress is a quest for purity.
The Virgo rising energy tends to come off as being perfectionist. Actually, the objective of this energy is to eliminate those things which do not support the larger goal, which is why there will be a focus on things that do not fit or are not quite right in any or every sense.
These are people who have an innate understanding of their body’s needs and do well to follow their instincts when it comes to wellness.
VIRGO ASCENDANT (RISING) APPEARANCE
Individuals with Virgo rising tend to be slender, agile have smaller frames (if you think of the quick movements of Mercury, you can see why agility is a consideration for Virgo Risings). They are also known for looking youthful and being in shape.
WHICH BODY PART DOES VIRGO RULE
The sign of Virgo rules the digestive system, which speaks to the assimilation and “putting to work” that is done in the 6th house (ruled by Virgo), where we establish our processes for life and nourish our goals and life objectives.
VIRGO ZODIAC SIGN SYMBOL
The symbol of the Virgo sign is the virgin (or the maiden), which tells us of the underlying search for purity (that is often interpreted as perfectionism) that this energy is associated with.
VIRGO RISING CELEBRITIES
Emma Watson, Uma Thurman and Adam Sandler are just a couple of the celebrities whose faces and personalities you can look up to get a better idea of the Virgo 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.
