Your Rising Sign
Your Rising Sign (also called your Ascendant) is the sign that was rising on the eastern horizon at the time of birth. However, this is not the ZODIAC constellation but the SIGN relative to the starting point on 21 March every year (vernal equinox) when the Sun is zero degrees Aries.
The Constellations of the Zodiac keep moving backward by one sign approx every 2200 years, which is called the precession of the equinox. Indian astrology uses the precession and they call the amount of deviation Ayanamsa. Unfortunately, their astrology calculations are totally off from the original Indian astrology especially for the Natal chart and the only way you can get accurate Indian chart is by using Ayanamsa as zero.
Your Rising Sign not only reflects your physical characteristics, it gives you an accurate indication of your temperament. Knowing more about your Rising Sign or Ascendant can help you better understand yourself and also how you react under stress.
The Ascendant or Rising Sign changes every two-hours approx, and the entire 12 Signs are repeated every day i.e in 24-hour period.
Of course, your rising sign or Asendant never changes and remains the same all your life
Rising Sign and Horoscope Magazines
Most Sun Sign astrology magazines use Your Rising Sign and Sun Sign as being the same, so unless you were born around 6 am, the dates they use for your Sun Sign horoscope and areas of life would be totally off.
