What Does an Ascendant in Libra Reveal?

The rising sign is the constellation that was rising in the east at the moment you were born. Also known as the Ascendant, it is the beginning of the first house in your natal, or birth chart. A natal chart is a map of the heavens at the exact moment you blessed the world with your presence. The chart is in twelve sections called houses, each ruled by a Zodiac sign or constellation in the sky. Each house has a ruling astrological planet, and the aspects between these planets are taken into consideration when identifying the personality of someone, as well as that person’s emotions and actions throughout their life.

In ancient astrology, the rising sign was used as your personality guide as opposed to the Sun sign which is used today. So, you may feel and sometimes behave much differently than what your Sun sign indicates if the Sun and Earth’s eastern horizon were in different constellations when you were born. The Rising sign is equally as important as the Moon sign and the Sun sign. The Sun sign is often the only Zodiac sign considered in modern day, common Astrology, although many people are becoming more educated on the topic. The rising indicates how the world sees you, and rules your inner child and your emotions.

Libra is the seventh sign of the Zodiac, and is an air sign with Venus as their astrological planet ruler. Those with an Ascendant in Libra have a need to keep all aspects of their lives in balance. They thrive when their work life is organized and not too little nor too much time is spent working. Just as their employment is balanced, their home life needs to be balanced and structured as well. They are just and fair, never choosing one child over the other or spending more money on one family member and less on another. Also, Libra Ascendant people spend a lot of time obsessing about their family members and carry a deep, deep emotional attachment to each one. These people are the best secret keepers and like to keep their private lives extremely private.

Those who were born at a time when the Libra was rising in the eastern sky generally love to travel. You can find a person with Libra rising in a career of service. Often they will enter the fields of law enforcement, the legal community, the hospitality industry, or possibly the medical field.
