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 our early childhood environment. 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 the appearance and outward personality. 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 or who is attracted to you. The 7th house is the house of types of partnerships including marriage and legal contracts, yet also considered the house of open enemies or the Defendant in a law suit.
For example, Leo Rising people are self aware, warm, and stylish. Their personal appearance is important and they seek much attention and pampering. Their natural enthusiasm, energy, and optimism is magnetic. A Leo Ascendant is recognized by their hair, straight posture, strong mid-backs, and their warm, endearing smile. They make good Managers and are natural promoters, even if they are prone to temper tantrums~!
Leo rising people possess a strong ego and self image, projected into the environment. Leo's aura radiates an air of royalty and they are very proud and dignified. In love, this placement would require mutual independence within marriage as both Leo and Aquarius are powerfully willful. Love relationships are often impersonal and involve mutual growth. Sexually, Leo may be prone to voyeurism and/or domination.
With Aquarius on the Descendant, attraction to an unusual, independent, future-oriented and progressive individual is likely. Astrologers come under this heading! Aquarius is impersonal, freedom-loving, and unique and may be erratic and creative in love. The well known expression “Absence makes the heart grow fonder” epitomizes the Leo/Aquarius Axis.

Leave Me Alone (I'm Lonely) ~By PinkGo away...Give me a chance to miss you
It'll make me want to kiss you
I love you so
Much more when you're not here
I don't believe Adam and Eve
Spent every goddamn day together
Come back...Go away...Come back
Why can't I just have it both ways
Go away...Come back
I wish you knew the difference
Whatever is not acknowledged in the Self (Ascendant) is attract externally (Descendant). Other people mirror our desires and teach necessary lessons in relating. Knowing the date, time, and place of birth is important in determing the Ascendant.If you want to learn more about this topic and others, schedule a phone, Skype or e-mail consultation at Fuchsiastars@aol.com.
