What Does an Ascendant in Gemini Reveal?

The rising sign, which is also called the Ascendant, is the beginning of the first house in your natal, or birth chart. A natal chart is a map of the sky at the exact moment you were born. Your rising sign is the Zodiac sign or constellation that was rising over the eastern horizon at the exact moment of your birth. The Ascendant rules your inner child and your emotions. Therefore, you can feel and sometimes behave much differently than what your Sun sign indicates if the Sun and Earth’s eastern horizon were in different constellations when you were born. This sign is just as important as your Moon and Sun signs.

Gemini is the third sign of the Zodiac, and is an air sign. Those with an Ascendant in Gemini are generally very good looking people. They are tons of fun to be around with a great sense of humor and a creative desire for adventure.

Mercury, the astrological planet that rules Gemini, is the planet of communication. Therefore, it is easy for a person with Gemini rising to get his or her point across. These people also tend to be quite chatty seeming to be poor listeners; quite the contrary, however. They are very astute and aware of their surroundings. They are generally very intelligent with a lot of common sense. They have high energy and love to socialize creating an appearance that can be, unintentionally, quite deceiving.

      Rising signs are hard for many people to grasp! I have enjoyed learning about the theories and 'rules' of astrology; it just helps me understand things, even as a passing curiosity. Nice information here!
