Aries Rising
Your self-assertion is what you show the world

by Rebecca Brents

So ... what IS a "Rising Sign?"

The Ascendant of a Natal Chart is also called the "Rising Sign." Astrologers use the two terms interchangeably. It is literally the sign that was rising on the Eastern horizon of the sky at the time you were born in the place where you were born. This is why it is essential to have both a birthplace and a birth time in order to cast a completely valid Natal Chart.

All twelve signs of the Zodiac rotate across the sky in the course of a day. Therefore the sign that is ascending -- literally "rising" -- on the eastern horizon changes every two hours. And your Rising Sign ... or Ascendant Sign ... depends on the exact time you were born!

When you have Aries Rising ...

With Aries Rising, you are assertive and spontaneous in meeting life. Your manner is frank and outgoing. You are outspoken ... and know how to say what you mean. You are also impulsive, and while tact is not one of your virtues, no one will ever call you dishonest or malicious.

There is tremendous power in this position, showing you can overcome formidable obstacles in pursuing your personal goals. You may be justly accused of pushing your way through life for you are essentially a rugged individualist. You are a soul of immediate desires and responses. You are demonstrably impatient and do NOT like to be kept waiting.

How to Use Your Aries Energy Wisely ---> Aries' symbol is the ram. -- No matter what your Sun Sign, your personality contains Aries energy. Astrologers know we all contain every energy found in the Zodiac to a greater or lesser degree. It's what makes each individual complex and complete.

5 Things to Know About Aries -- Dealing with the Zodiac's Pushiest Sign ---> 1 -- There are twelve signs in the Zodiac. Of these, Aries is the first. Number One. Any Aries will tell you there are good and obvious reasons for that. Moreover he's brave enough to say this out loud in front of Leos and Capricorns. He may have a point, but this tells you some things about Aries. He's confident, courageous and candid.

Why is Aries Important? ---> Aries' symbol is the ram. -- We all have Aries in our character -- Each of us have Aries energy expressing somewhere in our lives. True, if you don't have a planet in Aries or a major placement, like the Ascendant, in Aries, your Aries energy is indirect, possibly confined only to the affairs of the house that has Aries on the cusp.

Your Aries House -- The Starting Point -- Where Action Begins ---> The starting point of life -- The house in your Natal Chart with Aries on the cusp is the starting point for your life's action. It's where things begin. When you're ready to launch new ventures or start new interests, this is the first place you look for motive and inspiration.

Masculine Signs -- The Fire and Air Signs ---> Signs of Life and Intellect -- Essentially, "masculine" signs prefer to seize the moment, make things happen and change what doesn't suit them with their actions and choices. Masculine sign people are life's movers-and-shakers.

The Fire Signs -- Aries, Leo, Sagittarius ---> Fire Signs get things done -- The Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius represent energy that is directly involved with action, leadership, personal charisma, and self-expression. These signs are self-confident, dramatic, self-promoting, exuberant, vivacious, and captivating.

Moon in Aries ---> Introduction -- The Moon travels completely around the Zodiac ... through all twelve signs every month -- a trip that lasts about 28.3 days each time. It makes this circle 13 times a year. It stays in each sign about 2 1/2 days. Everyone gets to enjoy a monthly Lunar homecoming as the Moon returns for a few days to the sign it occupied when they were born ... their Natal Moon sign. Astrologers call this a Lunar Return.

The New Moon in Aries -- Aries Energy in the Creative Process ---> We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time. T.S.Elliot Four Quartets -- The place of new beginnings -- With the arrival of Aries we have indeed arrived again at the place of our beginnings, having traveled another cycle on the spiral of the creative process.

Born with the Sun in Aries -- The Aries Character ---> Aries is the Spring Fire Sign -- Direct and to the point -- Passion is never a problem for Aries. Nor is self-assertion. Nor is being downright pushy and tromping on toes if that gets a job done. Aries is long on initiative and ambition, notoriously short on tact -- and few will apologize for that.

Horoscopes When the Sun is in Aries -- March 20 to April 20 ---> If Your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in ... Aries -- Your theme song this month is ... "I gotta be me ... !!" So let the world hear that message. Let it see who you really are. Put your special qualities on display with all the flair and drama you can devise. Say what you believe. Be yourself.

Making the Most of the Sun in Aries ---> The spiral begins ... again -- The energy of The Sun in Aries is confident, brave, and assertive. Aries brings an energy full of initiative and self-assurance to the climate of everyday life. It is associated with new beginnings, making things happen and upsetting the status quo. Aries is the first step on a new spiral of creation and experience ... and it is eager to get underway.

Understanding The Sun in Aries ---> Connect with your initiative -- The Sun travels through the Astrology sign Aries once a year, a trip that lasts about a month. The Sun is in Aries from late March until late April. The energy of the Sun in Aries is dynamic, assertive and competitive -- and accompanies a rise in these attitudes in everyone.

The Virtues and the Downside of the Sun in Aries ---> Were you born with the Sun in Aries? -- As someone born with the Sun in Aries, you were endowed from birth with the energy of the warrior, the pioneer, the entrepreneur and the trailblazer. You examine the world around you and see possibilities and potentials everywhere, for one of your strongest talents is your ability to shake up the status quo and bring new things to life.

When the Sun is in Aries ---> Welcome to Spring!! -- When the Sun is in Aries, people are aggressive, direct, and competitive. Attitudes are forceful and energetic. It's time to shake off the meditative moods that prevailed during Pisces, and kick some ... um ... aspirations. With the Sun in Aries, people are candid, blunt, emphatic and concerned with winning. They are assertive and ambitious.

Conscious Living with Aries -- When The Sun travels through -- the Aries sector in your chart ---> Where is Aries in your chart? Aries is the Spring Fire Sign. When the Sun travels through Aries what area does it cover in your Natal Chart? What house(s) are involved in this particular slice of the sky? And specifically, what house (or houses) in your Natal Chart have Aries on the cusp?

When You Are Using Your Aries Energy Wisely ---> Aries is the Spring Fire Sign -- Using physical energy -- First of all, you make the distinction between self-assertion and aggression, between being self-reliant and being a bully.

The Other Side of Aries Energy -- When Aries Energy Goes Wrong ---> Aries is the Spring Fire Sign -- When things go awry -- Discomfort is a wonderful teacher. Pain gets your attention. And for some of us ... that's what it takes. In Oriental medicine, pain is considered to be a symptom of blocked energy, blocked Chi. Its causes are many, but treatment essentially comes when the practitioner takes action to unblock the clogged energy channel, to break the logjam ... so the chi can disperse as intended and flow naturally again.

If You Have Your Natal Sun in Aries -- If you were born as a citizen of this sign ---> Aries' symbol is the Ram. -- Blessed with Spring's own vitality -- Aries energy is assertive and forceful, passionate, self-assured and concerned with winning. As a Star-Citizen of this sign, your personality shows all these traits and attitudes. You are energetic and direct, persistent ... and self-centered. You know how to make decisions. You know how to go after what you want -- using the shortest, most expedient route.

The Full Moon in Aries Opposing the Sun in Libra -- Balancing Independence and Cooperation ---> Independence vs. Teamwork -- The Aries Full Moon during the sign of Libra signals a clash between your wish to be part of a couple, involved in teamwork projects, and considered "a good partner" ... and your equally compelling desire to reclaim your independence, exercise your own initiative, and be able to call your own shots again -- without having to consider somebody else all the time.

Celebrating Aries -- The 5 most distinctive / admirable traits of the sign ---> Perspective -- Their remarkable drive and enterprise. Aries citizens are always doing something. Sometimes it takes physical movement. Sometimes their projects and plans take place mostly in their minds. Either way they are "in motion" somewhere. To Aries life is a place to have impact, a thing to manage ... and they revel at the prospect.

The Transiting Sun in Aries -- Beginning Again ---> The chance to be Aries for a month -- The Sun represents your ego, your basic sense of who you are. In Astrology, the Sun symbolizes your self-image and your self-identity. Your Sun Sign, obviously, tells what sign the Sun was traveling through on the day you were born. The Sun in the sky, however, travels through all twelve signs of the Zodiac in the course of a year.

When the New Moon is in Aries ---> Aries is the Spring Fire Sign -- Coming awake ... coming alive ... again -- The general tone of life for everyone is dynamic, excited, upbeat, and ambitious. After the quiet, reflective time of Pisces, the energy most available in the world is assertive, courageous, enterprising, and direct. New plans are coming together and are ready for attention, ready for launch, ready for action. This is a time of pioneering initiative, increased physical and sexual drive, and a definite emphasis on winning.

Do You Have the Sun in Aries? -- What happens when you're born right on the cusp? ---> What's your sign? -- Do you have The Sun in Aries? If you were born between March 20 and April 20, you likely have an Aries Sun in your Natal Chart. But the beginning and end dates can be a little ragged because the celestial schedule and human calendars don't always synch.
