The Sun on the Ascendant indicates a very strong, magnetic personality, self-confidence and
a zest for life. It usually represents someone who can get up in the morning "with the Sun." (The sign the Sun is
in will tell more about how they actually express themselves once they are up.)
The Moon in this position indicates a very emotional person who needs
others to notice them and respond to them. They may be hypersensitive and very moody. They may also be very talkative and
love a certain amount of drama.
on the Ascendant indicates a person who navigates his or her way through life by logical reasoning, quick thinking, and usually
develops the ability to communicate to a fine art. They are often very witty. They may encounter the world through their minds,
rather than through experience and sometimes respond to what they "think" is happening, rather than what is actually
on the Ascendant" person is usually beautiful and knows how to use their looks and their charm to get them what they
want. Their social skills are highly developed and fashion is important. They generally hang around chic places with wealthy
people and may be part of the popular clique.
Mars on the Ascendant usually corresponds to a very physical type of person, who may be athletic and strong,
of robust constitution physically or one who confronts life sexually. Note that Bill Clinton has Mars and Neptune both conjunct
on the Ascendant and he's known for his sexually explicit behavior which is clouded around issues of deception and confusion.
The Mars personality is usually very direct, even blunt, can be egotistic and selfish, competitive or goal- oriented. Other
factors may soften this effect or aggravate it into an aggressive temperament. President Clinton's Mars is softened by a Venus
conjunction, which explains why he says all the right things to people, despite the contradictions (Neptune). This is an excellent
placement for any type of competitor, most especially an athlete, as well as a salesperson on commission or a politician running
Jupiter on the
Ascendant indicates an expansive personality with a generous nature and often a hardy laugh. They tend to be lucky at whatever
they do, and are popular because they know how to have fun and sometimes become generous benefactors. They may be overly dramatic
and can be big spenders and gamblers, but when it comes to higher knowledge, they are often very gifted.
Saturn on the Ascendant makes a person rather serious
and wise beyond their years. They are often studious and patient, paying attention to detail and are willing to take the necessary
steps to fulfill their dreams, which are often set quite high. The term "perseverance furthers" especially applies
to such people. They may also be very self-critical and sometimes lack self-confidence as a result of difficult circumstances
early in life when in the first house.
on the Ascendant indicates a somewhat unusual person who is totally unpredictable. They may be impatient and restless, creative
artists or disruptive and unconventional, yet on the cutting edge of tomorrow's trends. But put them into a box and they will
rebel and instigate others to do the same. They can be inspired leaders, the loner, or even the wise but eccentric "the
fool on the hill" in certain circumstances.
Neptune on the Ascendant can be the artist, the psychic, the spiritual guru, the enlightened one,
or the airy-fairy out-of-touch-with-reality dreamer. They may perceive reality from another dimensional perspective than most
and may be rather hard to pin down. Therefore, they can be unintentionally deceptive and may do whatever is asked of them.
But they can experience other worldly realms like no other and may experience the blissful consciousness of Oneness with all
beings. Meditation is one path to spirituality they would excel in or they could find themselves thrashing around in a mental
institution or prison, or in a therapist's chair trying to find their way. They can be so sensitive to others that it's very
difficult for them to know who they are. They often become whatever their peers and culture make of them. Vincent Van Gogh
is a Neptune on the Ascendant type.
on the Ascendant are mysterious types, often fascinated with "the Dark Side" of life, death, vampires, the "Gothic"
look, and wearing black. They are disgusted with superficiality and mediocrity, demanding deep commitment and intensity. They
prefer profound intimacy but when angry, can respond with violent tempers, often exhibiting extraordinary jealousy. Though
they relish knowing all your secrets, they are reluctant to reveal their own.
