The ascendant sign is the sign in which the Sun rises in the Eastern horizon at the moment of our birth. The ascendant sign is the first house in our astrological birth charts, which consists of 12 houses.
Ascendant sign is the first impression you give outwardly. It contains information about how you appear and how you are perceived from the outside. For example, your zodiac sign may be Libra, meaning your Sun is in Libra, giving you a willing heart and soul that is prone to wholehearted partnership and togetherness.
However, if your ascendant sign is Capricorn, your image may be a little different. You may display a serious, distant stance, and you may be perceived as cold and distant from the outside. Also, you can give the impression of having a lot of work, power, responsibility and duty in terms of appearance.
What is the significance of the ascendant sign?
The determination of the ascendant sign in astrological birth charts determines the whole shape of the chart. Because all other houses are shaped by the position of the first sign, the ascendant sign. The determination of the ascendant sign is also important in seeing which houses the planets fall into. The hour and minute you were born are important in determining the ascendant sign. Therefore, a calculation is made based on these.
However, in cases where the time is not clear, the birth time is tried to be determined by taking into account a few important dates in your life with a study called rectification. However, for this, the date and time of your birth and the place where you were born must be precise. For example, if you know that you were born on 15.5.1975 between 17 and 19:00, a healthy and accurate astrological birth chart can be drawn by clarifying the birth time with a rectification study on important dates such as the date of marriage, starting a job or an important promotion date, which may be important dates in your life. As the ascendant sign is the first impression of the person, the physical appearance, face and height of the person can also play a confirming role in this determination.
How is the ascendant sign calculated?
The ascendant sign is calculated based on the place, date and time of your birth. The geographic location and time you were born are important. Calculation is made with an equation created by taking into account the star hour, latitude, and the tilt of the earth to the equatorial plane of the geographic location where you were born. In the years when there was no technology, this calculation was done manually by looking at the previously extracted star hour tables. However, now the applications and software prepared for this calculation are used.
Although the ascendant changes approximately every two hours, some signs have a shorter duration than others.
