The Aries/Libra - 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, our “mask” for which our Sun hides behind. This is our outer personality, temperament and disposition as well as how we experienced our early home environment growing up. It is the way others see us and also gives indication of our physical appearance. The ruler of the Ascendant and the aspects (connections to other planets in your birth chart) further delineate and define your 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.
In relationships,the ruling planet of Aries is firey, aggressive Mars♂. If your ascendant is Aries, you appear alert, assertive, charming and demonstrate a forceful disposition. You may be more outgoing and aggressively dynamic than most. Because you are a fire, cardinal sign, stagnation isn’t an option! You want to assert your influence over your environment and (all over) your partner taking center stage! Impulsive actions and verbal accusations are possible when you don't get yoru way in relationship! Aries folk will exit a relationship even faster than they got into it!
With Venus♀ ruled Libra♎ on the descendant, you seek a beautiful, affable, feminine, high energy and articulate partner. One of the first things you could look at when you have the birth data of a potential partner, is their Venus placement since Venus rules your descendant.
It is also possible for an Aries Ascendant to attract a partner who has Mars prominent in their chart. A strong Mars would be in aspect to the Sun☉, Moon☽, Mars♂ or 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 Libra♎, Gemini♊, Leo♌ and Sagittarius♐.
Knowing the date, time and place of birth is important in making the determination of the Ascendant or Rising sign, the sign rising on the horizon at the time of birth. This cusp sets up all the other house cusps that are the divisions of the houses or areas of life.
