What Does an Ascendant in Taurus Reveal?
Your rising sign is the zodiac sign or constellation that was rising over the eastern horizon at the time of your birth. This sign is just as important as your moon sign and your sun sign. The rising rules your inner child and your emotions. Therefore, you can feel and sometimes behave much differently from what your sun sign indicates if the sun and earth’s eastern horizon were in different constellations when you were born. The rising sign 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.
Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac. It is an earth sign and quite grounded, disciplined, and realistic. Because Taurus is ruled by the astrological planet Venus, someone with a Taurus rising will make it obvious that they enjoy the finer, prettier things in life. They are very attached to their possessions and spend their time shopping or creating while wearing aesthetically pleasing clothing and jewelry. Their personal appearance is important to them.
Those with the ascendant in Taurus in their birth tend to be very responsible people. Security is extremely important to them. Financial security is especially important to them. You will find that those with a Taurus ascendant usually have a hefty savings account that they will never touch. They must be financially secure in order to be happy.
A person with a Taurus rising loves to love. These people are sensitive and kind, making them great health care providers, counselors, and veterinarians. They are generally organized and professional in business. They are no-nonsense people as well. Do your job, be responsible, look nice, and you will enjoy the company of one or more persons with Taurus rising in their birth charts.
