Most of us know our own and our friends’ star signs aka sun signs (it’s how we make passive aggressive judgments, while bigging ourselves up, via zodiac memes on Instagram right?). And we know our moon signs are equally as important, too. but did you know you also have an equally important RISING SIGN?
Your rising sign is the planetary influence which was rising, i.e. on the Eastern horizon, when you were born. It typically reflects how others see you IRL, and can predict your gut, spontaneous reactions to stuff. It is, also, alas, another potential personality malfunction to consider.

What does it mean if your rising sign is…
A tendency to be short tempered, tactless and bossy. A natural Apprentice candidate.
Practical under pressure. SAS material.
Reacts to situations quickly, but those feelings and intentions are only surface deep. A glib politician.
A sensitive, sentimental melt. Likely to have psychic powers; more of a ‘feeler’ than a ‘thinker’.
An extrovert who craves drama and attention. Launches grand plans but can’t be bothered with seeing the detail through. AKA a royal pain in the ass.
A precise perfectionist who will worry themselves incessantly over minor kerfuffles. A born insomniac.
Completely unable to make up their mind. Even at the expense of their other great hang-up: pissing people off.
Extreme, secretive, passionate. A bubbling volcano of emotion waiting to blast off. A natural born pit of feelings.
A loose cannon happily freewheeling around getting up to mischief. Gets away with it because usually also warm and funny.
Calculating and self controlled. Often a source of advice for others before they identify the cold, pessimistic monster within.
Eccentric, independent and completely detached from the usual human emotional rollercoaster. To be found floating somewhere outside the box, thinking about space and time or whatever.
A vivid dreamer and intuitive thinker. Able to read minds but too nice to say what they really see.
