Ascendant in Aquarius
The Ascendant (AC) represents your outer personality, the external character that you irradiate and that others perceive. t is the first impression you give to the world around you. It is also called the Rising sign and is the Zodiac constellation that was rising over the horizon at the East in the moment of your birth. In Astrology the sign of the Ascendant determines how the others see you, your appearance as well as how you react to the world and what you expect from others around you, while the sign where the Sun resides at your moment of birth (your star sign) indicates how you are inside. Your Ascendant in Aquarius means that you possess a strong individualism and originality of character, with an intelligent mind and independent thinking. You are a charming individual and is attracted to the unconventional beauty. You view the world through the intellectual lens of ideas, values and principles, and are an idealist, likely to have a broad view of society that allows you to mingle with a great variety of people, opinions, ages, cultures and races. You understand the value of higher studies and are an independent student, and strongly believe in quality, fairness and harmony, being above all a true humanitarian person, with the mission to wake others up, to cheer others on to break with restrictive or mind control programming.
Ascendant in Aquarius makes you the ultimate freedom-lover and also a person prone to reversals. Your unpredictability is something that you and others will have to deal with and you often will make surprises changes and moves, and can quickly transform into a loner. You resist the conventional small talk and like to shock or stir up controversy in some way, unable to work in the path straight and narrow of others. You friendly nature and unconventional mindset makes you someone exciting to be around. It’s hard to shock an Ascendant in Aquarius. They’ve seen it all, or at least want you to think they have. In fact, they often enjoy shocking others. Not that they are flamboyant by nature, but they do like to, albeit quietly, get a rise out of others. Some natives born with Aquarius on their Ascendant can be quietly provocative and irreverent. Most people with Ascendant in Aquarius are quite friendly and likeable. Their personality quirks generally go over quite well with others. They generally give others quite a bit of freedom–accepting, as a rule, people from all walks of life as equals. And, their somewhat cool and detached curiosity about all that goes on around them appeals to most.
Often labelled as independent and original children, Ascendant in Aquarius natives often feel a little “different” or “special” throughout life. They often feel like they are on the outside looking in, and their ability to observe and deduce is often uncanny. They’re also adept at getting things to work, even when the parts that make up the whole seem like a puzzle with unusual pieces–especially when it comes to groups of people. This sets them apart as managers and team leaders. The Ascendant often reveals physical mannerisms and even choice of dress, as it shows how people present themselves to the world. With Ascendant in Aquarius, natives sometimes have a quirkiness to their manner, and some dress in a slightly offbeat manner–not enough to make them stand out like a sore thumb, but just enough to express their original temperament. Because these people seem so open to new ideas, it may be surprising when you encounter their decidedly stubborn streak. Aquarius is a fixed sign, after all. The ascendant sign shows how individuals react to new situations, and with Aquarius rising, there can be a resistance to change that seems to belie the native’s generally progressive nature. There’s a distinct inflexibility with Aquarian rising people, and, sometimes, a tendency to want to force their opinions on others. With their eye to the future of mankind as a whole, some people born with Ascendant in Aquarius overlook the more personal needs of the people closest to them. They are often attracted to partners who possess self-confidence and ardour.
Ascendant in Aquarius Attributes: Lover of independence, spirit of contradiction, self-confidence, rather stand out as a thinker and original and independent individual who does not know how to submit to social uses and customs. He enjoys being different and even prides himself on his individualism but being appreciated is as important to him as anyone else, he can be rebellious. Not particularly sensual but in MA there may be a tendency to seek artificial paradises. The frivolities of life are secondary to him. If Saturn is strong it can maintain certain traditions.
