The ascendant, or rising sign, describes the soul's central concern. This concern flows out of the rising sign and is then modified and conditioned by the other planets. As a soul-level concern it is oftentimes only dimly aware of it's needs - or not at all. Surface-level security needs as represented by the Moon often cloud over the soul's needs and the Sun's egoic need for recognition might obscure the soul's needs. Getting at this core soul concern, or mission can open up a more fulfilling, aligned, purposeful life. You can find your rising sign below by entering your birth details.
