Knowing your partners 7th house cusp (the relationship house) and the ruler of that house indicates the type of partner you may attract or are attracted to and the method of relating within that 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. 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, symbolizes 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, Capricorn♑ has a planetary rulership with karmic Saturn♄ . If you have a Capricorn Ascendant, you appear responsible, mature, controlled, serious, reserved, warm, friendly, physically attractive and determined. Others look to you for advice and seek wisdom in your presence.
With Lunar ruled Cancer♋ on the descendant you seek a home loving, family oriented person, one who will make a good marriage partner. Attraction to a partner with those qualities who is nurturing, good parenting skills, enjoys cooking, easily expresses emotions and feelings and who is financially responsible, is likely. A man with Capricorn on the Ascendant may be physically attracted to the female form, particularly the breasts.
One of the first aspects to view in the chart of a potential partner is their Moon ☽ placement. Since the Moon rules your descendant and it's behavioral qualities within the chart, it may also manifest and be felt within your relationship with that person. Because the Moon rules your relationship house, it is important that your partner's Lunar placement makes positive aspects as the quality of those aspects will play out and express within the relationship.
It is also possible for a Capricorn Ascendant to attract a partner who has Saturn or the Moon prominent in their chart. Prominent Saturn 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 Capricorn.
Knowing the date, time and place of birth is important in determining the Ascendant, or Rising sign, the sign rising on the horizon at the time of birth. This cusp sets up all other house cusps dividing the areas of life.
