The Pisces/Virgo ~Ascendant/Descendant
Relationship Axis (1st house/7th house)
Knowing your partners 7th house cusp (the relationship house) and the ruler of that house will indicate the type of partner you may attract or are attracted to and the method of relating within a relationship.
The Ascendant, or Rising sign, is the sign rising on the horizon at the time of birth. This is the face we show the world, the “mask” behind which the Sun hides. This is the outer personality, temperament and disposition as well as how the early early home life was experienced and the environment we grew up in. It is the way others see us and also indicates the physical appearance. The ruler of the Ascendant and the aspects (connections to other planets in your birth chart) further delineate and define physical appearance.
The Descendant, or 7th house cusp, its ruler and the aspects it makes in your birth chart, is symbolic of the type of partner you are attracted to. The 7th house is the house of all partnerships including marriage and legal contracts yet also considered the house of open enemies or the Defendant in a law suit.
Whatever we do not own in ourselves we tend to attract the negative qualities or shadow through the 7th house. In relationships, Pisces♓ has Neptune♆ as the modern ruler and with benefic Jupiter♃ as the ancient ruler. If you have a Pisces Ascendant, you appear mercurial and may have a naïve disposition. You may be more spiritual than most. Because you are a mutable sign, although you are flexible indecisiveness if possible. Physical appearance is soft and gentle. Artistic expression is a must and you have an active fantasy life. Because you're a mutable sign, there are moments of ambivalence, indecisiveness and ever changing your mind. Worry, self deception and denial is possible. Pisces rising folks tend to have sensual lips and very large, soft eyes.With Mercury☿ ruled Virgo♍ on the Descendant you seek a methodical, practical, articulate partner. Mutual sharing and communication within any partnership is absolutely critical to you. You desire intelligence and refinement in a partner. Attraction to a partner with those qualities who is organized and analytical as well as being health conscious is possible.
One of the first areas you could check in the chart of a potential partner is their Mercury☿ placement since Mercury is the planet ruling your descendant, (Virgo♍). If Mercury is well aspected, then that energy will be carried out and felt within your relationship with that partner. If Mercury is poorly or negatively aspected, that energy is also carried into the relationship.
It is also possible for Pisces♓ Ascendant to attract a partner who has Mercury☿ prominent in their chart. Prominent Mercury would be in aspect to the Sun, Moon, Mars, Venus or elevated in conjunction to the MC (10th house cusp) or IC (4th house cusp) conjunct or ruling their Ascendant or Descendant or Sun sign in Gemini♊ or Virgo♍.
Knowing the date, time and place of birth is important in making correct determination of the Ascendant/Rising sign, the sign rising on the horizon at the time of birth. This cusp sets up all the other house cusps which are the divisions of the houses or areas of life.
