Yes, and it also denotes a special connection to those who are Aquarius Sun, Moon, Venus, or Mars.
thelovelylibra answered: What confuses me is your Sun v Ascendent. Like which do people see more? Your sun? WHat’s you ascendent for, exactly?
I have A LOT of information on the Ascendant. Go HERE to have a read.
To answer you directly:
In Western Astrology it is unfortunate that people only pay attention to their Sun sign, when there is SO MUCH MORE to our personalities,. Each and every aspect and placement makes up who we are as a whole, while the Sun sign is the broadest (and sometimes incorrect) way to describe us as individuals.
I hope this helps answer your questions!
I’m sorry to hear that you’re not loving who you are! However, one of the beauties of astrology is when uncovering traits about yourself that if you feel hindered from your interactions with people, you can take steps to improve yourself! (so many astrology haters out there think that people who are into astrology use it as a crutch or an excuse for bad behavior, when that’s not the case)
First thing’s first: I think you need to learn to love your Virgo traits. Disliking yourself won’t get you anywhere in life and you can easily become your own worst enemy.
Why you should love Virgo in your birth chart, and how to make the most of it:
At the heart of it all, just remember that the more you LIKE yourself, the more OTHER people will feel comfortable around you, and you will feel LESS weary and cold. Not everyone is meant to be bubbly and outgoing! Not everyone feels energized in social situations. We all have our own special gifts and talents, and as long os you’re a decent human being who isn’t a total twat, life will work out for you.
Well, so much goes into compatibility that I really can’t do much to answer you except…
A Few Things to Note About Rising Sign Compatibility
1. No matter your Sun Sign, whatever your Rising sign is will attract others with the same element as your Rising sign, or others who possess that sign heavily in their chart
2. The opposite sign of your Ascendant, your Descendant is someone who will be a source of intense attraction, or a source of incredible balance and intrigue. Not every person you meet with their Sun sign in your Descendent will feel like this, but if someone with that sign enters your life, a bond will be formed, whether it’s always lasting or full of conflict, it depends, but will be memorable nontheless
3. People can often be unfairly judged by their Rising sign, so while first impressions may for the most part be correct, be careful before writing someone off, they may pleasantly surprise you!
Taurus can be a rather social sign when comfortable, and it’s normal to be perceived differently from how you truly are—our Rising sign certainly influences that! (that’s why it truly takes time to know people) :)
Some tips for making a good impression:
These may or may not apply to you, but when meeting new people and making good impressions these are good tips just to keep in mind. Of course, work with what feels comfortable for you, and be yourself! Let the real you shine if you have the opportunity—and you always will.
Good luck love!
Could be. The Rising sign in combination with a Scorpio Sun might form a Square, I would look and see if there are any aspects that form between the two. Often times Leo rising comes across as strong because that Sun influence makes a hard to miss presence. Combine that with the Scorpio magnetism? Yeah, you gather attention, and people are more apt to act negatively rather than positively because our society is more likely to tell you something negative about yourself than the very thing that they truly admire about you. AKA jealousy. AKA insecurities. AKA lame.
Let it roll, love, it isn’t worth it!
Many people strongly identify with it, and others do not, but it’s a part of your personality regardless. It’s influence is stronger than people realize, and I am curious about how it relates to you.
The Rising sign definitely has a larger role on our personalities, more than just the way people perceive you, that’s definitely true. It’s the way we act in order to feel comfortable in new experiences and people. It showcases our outward personality, along with our Mercury, Mars, and Midheaven. You also might have a heavily aspected Ascendant—take a look at that in your Birth Chart.
Often times, though, as we grow and mature and really come into our own, we seem to “fit” our Sun sign a bit more and see it’s presence as the “filter” through which all of our other planet placements go through.
It’s normal to feel as you do, but I hope this provided some insight too :)
Ah, you’re welcome! It really helps us understand more than we initially think. Chances are, you will meet an Aquarius who will change your life for the better, and could even enter a beautiful relationship with.
Take care xoxo
Thank you, I appreciate it more than you know.
And yes, your Ascendant being in Sagittarius is why you get along well with Fire signs, and your Mars sign (planet of actions, outward behavior, aggressions, sex, etc.) has a large influence as well.
Your Descendant is Gemini, which means you are probably attracted Gemini’s (Air) or perhaps people who have Gemini influence in their chart. You have a large and unique Scorpio/Plutonian influence in your chart which usually suggests that other water signs or earth signs would most likely be your most suitable match. However, in a person’s chart that you enter a relationship with or have a strong attraction to, ideally you should see some Fire and Air in there somewhere to complement what will fulfill you the most.
Something to note: when a person has a Sun, Moon, or Personal Planet in your North Node (in your case Sag), it means that this will be a relationship of growth and it will only build you up and it will feel as if you going down the right path.
If someone has a prominent planet in your South Node (in your case Gemini) beware that while the connection could be instant and full of chemistry, unless there are other prominent planets that suggest individual growth, eventually you WILL outgrow them and feel the need to move on. Because they would also share your Descendant, it would leave a large impact on your life and could be a relationship you’ll never forget.
I think for compatibility, a Sagittarius with a strong Scorpio influence in their chart could be an ideal match for you, but you could do quite well with Cancer, Aries, or another Scorpio.
I hope this helped :)
Why your Ascendant is more important than you think:
It is of course, the “mask” we wear that makes a first impression on others.
But it’s importance goes beyond that. It’s a pivotal point in synastry because it can determine that soul-mate “feel” (meant to be) and it determines your Descendant which also does the same.
It determines how well we get along with other signs based on their element. For instance, you can have a ton of Earth influence in your chart, but if your Ascendant is Fire, you might get along quite well with Fire signs.
Although your Moon sign is second only to your Sun sign, your Ascendant is of the utmost importance when relating to others and what kind of impact you can have on people. It can determine certain physical characteristics, and when someone is the Sun sign of your Descendant, they tend to make a very large impact on your life when in a romantic relationship with that person.
It’s the opposite sign of your Ascendant (rising sign)
If your Ascendant is:
Aries: Descendant Libra
Taurus: Descendant Scorpio
Gemini: Descendant Sagittarius
Cancer: Descendant Capricorn
Leo: Descendant Aquarius
Virgo: Descendant Pisces
(and vice versa)
