The ascendant is defined as the point at which the light of morning shines on the day of your birth, which is the cusp between the twelve and the one. It belongs to the first house, and it is never, ever in the twelfth. Although it is very difficult to say exactly what aspect of yourself this represents, some astrologers believe that it is your moral compass or your idealism. It can also indicate how you would like to be perceived by others.
If your ascendant is in the 12th house, you will have to make a real effort to avoid being influenced by people who are jealous or who feel persecuted, especially when you are young. You should also try to keep away from arguments because they will only make things worse for you. Finally, you should not be afraid to speak your mind even if that means hurting other's feelings. All these behaviors will help you grow up to be independent and self-sufficient.
Your ascendant in the 12th house also indicates that you will find it hard to accept criticism because you want people to think well of you. You need to remember that everyone has a right to their opinion and you shouldn't accept anything less than perfection from yourself or others. Finally, you should learn how to forgive because nothing great was ever built without sacrifice or effort and those who have wronged you must be forgiven before they can be trusted again.
Your ascendant is housed in your first dwelling. In the same way that the ascendant marks a point in your astrological chart at the precise time of your birth, you might think of the first house as the beginning—not only of the houses, but of you. It's where you come from and who you are.
The first house is all about origin, inheritance, family history, and beginnings. This house also represents security since nothing begins without risk and no one is safe from misfortune or death. The first house is also about knowledge, education, culture, and religion. All things human begin here.
The first house is the source of everything else. It has power over the other houses due to its position at the beginning of the chart. Also because it is the most basic need for survival that drives people to seek fortune in other areas of life. The first house is responsible for communication, which includes getting information and notifying others of changes. It can also mean advertising or propaganda. The first house is important for success because it is the starting point for everything else. Without a firm foundation, there is no stability or progress in any other area of life.
First, understand that the first house describes your origin, heritage, family history, and identity.
According to Vedic Astrology, an individual's entire existence is founded on the principle known as "As Above, So Below." That is to say, the ascendant or rising sign represents the formats of human activity. The ascendant represents the celestial position of one's birthplace. It also indicates the cultural background and ethnicity of one's parents. By studying the map of the constellations above us, astrologers can infer much about a person based on their ascending sign.
The sun is the ruler of the ascendant; it is also called the "principal" sign. The moon is the secondary sign, representing marriage and family. The earth is the tertiary sign, indicating profession and interest in science and technology. The quaternary sign is the dipper, which points directly up or down, indicating whether you are a leader or not. The quintuple sign is the pelican, which is half bird and half fish, symbolizing dual nature of man. Finally, the sextile sign is the six-pointed star, which is found in many cultures throughout history and indicates a person who is wise and knowledgeable.
Each zodiac sign has an associated element (earth, fire, air, water) that determines what qualities you will exhibit as you move through life. For example, if you were born under the sign of Aries, your dominant quality would be courage.
Ascend and descend are both derived from the Latin word scandere, which meaning "to climb." The distinction is entirely in the prefixes. The a-of ascend makes the word signify "climb up," but the de-of descend means "climb down." Thus, ascend means "to climb up" or "to rise" and descend means "to climb down" or "to go down.
Ascent and descent are both used to describe movements up or down a ladder, staircase, mountain, etc. Ascent is used when referring to people who are climbing ladders, stairs, mountains, etc. ; while deser is used for people who are descending them. For example, "The fire department was called out to put out a fire at the top of the building; they were unable to reach the fire until they descended the elevator to the third floor."
Ascent also can be used to describe a person who is rising into greater stature or fame; while Descent refers to a person being dragged down by misfortune or degradation.
In mathematics, ascent describes a function that increases without bound as its domain does. In other words, a mathematical function must be increasing to be asymptotic to itself. Descending functions are bounded below by a constant, so they cannot be asymptotic to themselves.
The astrological sign (and degree of that sign) that is ascending on the eastern horizon at the time and place of an occurrence is referred to as the Asc (or As). According to astrologers, the ascendant has a profound influence on a person's physical appearance and overall health. It is the third most essential factor in a horoscope. The other two are planet position and house cusps.
The Ascendant is determined by the sunrise on the first day of the month, or according to some systems, the sunset on the last day of the previous month. The choice of which system is used depends on which part of the world you live in. For example, people who live near the equator have no choice but to use the sunrise method because they rise with the sun every day. People who live at higher latitudes can choose between the sunrise and sunset methods, depending on where they want their Ascendant to lie. If we were to draw up a list of all the things that could possibly go wrong during the next month for each person born under different signs, we would find that almost all of them had something to do with the position of the Ascendant. For example, someone whose Ascendant is in Aries might get sick if they have a fight with their boss at work; someone whose Ascendant is in Taurus might have trouble making money if there is a shortage of jobs available; someone whose Ascendant is in Gemini might meet with an accident if they aren't careful.
Your social personality is determined by your rising sign (also known as your Ascendant). It is the way you seem to people as it pertains to the zodiac sign that was visible on the eastern horizon when you were born. Your rising sign reflects your physical body as well as your external appearance. It is also called your "star sign."
Your star sign influences what people think of you and how you are perceived by others. It can be an advantage or disadvantage based on what sign you rise, so understand that those who are aligned with your rising sign will have an impact on your reputation. They may help or hurt you based on their reaction to your behavior.
Your rising sign is the first thing people notice about you. Therefore, you should take special care with your appearance according to your rising sign. For example, if you are a Taurus rising, you should dress in sturdy, earthy colors and accessories. You should avoid wearing bright colors or expensive jewelry because these items are associated with Aries and its related signs (Lions, Tigers, and Bears).
Ascent is the path that a planet takes through the zodiac while moving from one constellation to the next over time. Ascent rates how fast a planet is moving across the sky during its monthly orbit around the sun. Every month, the moon's motion along with the rotation of Earth cause each planet to rise in the night sky at a different angle relative to the fixed stars.
