When you look at your sun sign most people don’t think to look at the other signs in the sky at the same time. However, these are all important pieces of your astrological profile. The sign that shows up in the East when you’re born is known as your ascendant or rising sign. The ascendant or rising sign is the sign that expresses how you will interact with the world around you.
If your sign has Sagittarius rising, then you are the sort of person who is able to envision the future you want and plan the steps to get yourself and those around you to that future. You may find that you are often ahead of a trend, able to see truths that others miss, or have a following. Those with an ascendant Sagittarius are highly intuitive, courageous and yet philosophical though this doesn’t in anyway diminish their almost overly optimistic view of the world. You will likely find that your best thoughts and inspiration come while you’re on the move rather than sitting at home. Connecting with the outside world, getting your body in motion, and infusing yourself with life will strengthen these innate talents and help you connect more closely with your intuitive mind.
Those with an ascendant Sagittarius may seem to others to be very shallow because they recover quickly from heartbreak, however this isn’t the case. Instead, you are someone who feels things quite deeply but have an unwavering faith in the goodness of the universe and that carries you through grief more quickly than others while providing you with a great sense of humor.
The ruling planet of Sagittarius is Jupiter and the location of Jupiter can further affect how a rising Sagittarius will influence your horoscope.
Sagittarius Rising – Jupiter in…
Aries: The influence of Aries on the rising Sagittarius gives you the positivity and courage to embark on new ventures as an entrepreneur. Be wary, however, that you balance this ‘can do’ attitude with actual knowledge or your enthusiasm will fade and leave you with a mess on your hands.
Taurus: Taurus brings all signs a love of the material, but in rising Sagittarius the bull adds practicality and stability that allow you to turn dreams into reality. As with Aries, the influence of Taurus will likely turn you towards business ventures, but in a much more calm and organized fashion.
Gemini: The influence of Gemini on an ascendant has none of the duplicity that the star sign is usually known for. Instead, Gemini will encourage you to become a messenger, helping to educate, encourage, and facilitate communication between others.
