You'll need your star sign and the hour you were born to determine your rising sign. Look down the left column of this useful table by Ask the Astrologers for your star sign, and then proceed through to the hour you were born. Once you've found your symbol, scroll down the left column to discover what it represents.
Your rising sign is the sign that is ascending while you're waking up and becoming conscious of your surroundings. It can also be called your "astrological sign." This sign remains the same throughout your life, although it does change periodically. As you develop and grow as a person, your astrological signs will come into alignment again. When they are not aligned, there is a conflict in your personal world that needs to be resolved.
For example, if you were born under the sign of Taurus, then you are a Titan and your rising sign is Taurus. If you were born at midnight, it is possible that you are feeling confused as to what time it is because you are trying to figure out which direction time is going. Think about it - if it had been daylight outside when you were born, you would know exactly how long it was since your last meal! Because of this confusion, you must resolve this issue before it can be moved on. Only then can you move forward with your life.
Titans have a hard time relating to other people due to a lack of empathy.
Your rising sign is always the sign on the cusp of the first house in your birth chart. This is why it's referred to as a "rising sign," since it was the sign rising on the eastern horizon at the moment of your birth. It's impossible to overlook. The Moon is always visible during a lunar eclipse, and when it passes through the center of the Earth it touches all the planets including Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. Even though they're far away from the Sun, these objects can still affect us via gravity.
The first house represents your identity. Who are you? What are your values? What matters most to you? Your sign answers all this and more. It tells us who you are deep down inside, what makes you happy, and how you want to be remembered after you're gone.
Your rise sign is also known as your "birth" sign. From here on out, everything about your life will unfold according to whether or not you were born with Capricorn on your ascendant. If so, everything that happens to you can be described as "rising." If not, then you had false hopes and expectations for your own life from the very beginning.
Many people have false beliefs about signs. For example, someone may believe that Aquarians are weak-willed individuals who do not take responsibility for their actions. This is not true!
It's time to start reading your horoscope for your rising sign as well as your sun sign (aka your regular ol' zodiac sign), since you'll likely find it to be a lot more accurate. The roman astrologers who created our current system of 12 constellations didn't know anything about human psychology or brain chemistry. They just knew that people like to divide up the sky into sections, so they decided on these arbitrary boundaries.
However, over time, scientists have learned a lot about the mind and body and have found many ways in which these boundaries are inaccurate. For example, astronomers now know that there are at least two galaxies directly opposite each other on the Earth's surface. The constellation Corvus (the crow) is located between these two galaxies. Crows are known for being intelligent and self-aware, but even they can't see their own tail when it's wagging around their back end! Scientists also know that we live in a galaxy called Milky Way, not Earth's Galaxy. Our planet isn't even inside the boundary of Corvus constellation anymore. It used to be, but not any more!
In addition, scientists have also discovered that our brains are divided up into several different regions that work together. There are many theories about what role each region plays, but none of them have been proven correct yet.
