The Mask that is your Rising Sign

The rising sign or ascendant as it is a known astrologically is the mask you assume when dealing with the world around you. It is a thin veil that separates you from everything else but is nonetheless there and based upon early childhood factors, environmental upbringing and to a large extent genetic make-up, this projection of self to the world is woven using all these different threads.

The Sun, Moon and rising sign all have a part to play in shaping your character and thereby your destiny as the the astrological tripod of your personality. Whereas the Sun is your willpower and essential character type according to your star sign at birth, the Moon represents the instinctive and often hidden areas of your nature. This is why the unconscious attachment to the rising sign can be spiritually detrimental. Your level of awareness may be deduced from the position of the Moon, the Sun and the ruler of your rising sign and the harmonious or otherwise aspects and dignities to which these planets are subjected.

The understanding that the projection of yourself ( the mask ) in the world on a day-to-day basis is a fabrication, is the beginning of self understanding. Mostly people are caricatures of themselves and believe that they are the personality which inhabits a physical body. With the dawning of understanding, through the use of astrological insights which point to your spiritual nature, you will come to see the mask as a limitation of who you really are.

The Zodiac sign which is rising at the time of your birth will reveal much about the mask and your interaction with the world around you. This rising sign also has a great deal of relevance to other areas of your life including your physical body, your luck and, according to some astrologers, your career and destiny.
