Your Ascendant in Vedic Astrology


Your Ascendant in Vedic Astrology

'Ascendant’ in Vedic astrology is a very important aspect. It is also known as the rising sign or ‘lagna’ which is the zodiac sign rising in the eastern horizon during one’s birth and the degree at which it is ascending. One’s ascendant is considered as one of the most influential aspect of the horoscope because it affects their personality and other major physical features, especially appearance and general outlook. It pertains to one’s awakening consciousness as the rising sun signifies the dawn of a new day.

The ascendant governs your body and the self. It also provides important clues about what guides you in life. Vedic astrologers analyze one’s ascendant to have a deeper understanding of the native’s motivations, inner spirit, and important characteristics. The average duration of a zodiac sign rising in the ascendant is two hours, so each of the twelve zodiac signs gets their specific time slot in the twenty-four hour duration of the solar day.

Ascendant is also the first house or Bhāva of your birth chart and is the commencement point of any horoscopic study.  The positioning of the lord of the ascendant in a specific house from the ascendant is also of great relevance in Vedic astrology. The planet would sap the energy of house in which it is placed in order to feed the native and thus will have great implications and impact in one’s life. Ascendant can help you to understand the purpose of your life. For example if you are born as an Aries Ascendant in a time frame between 00.00 to 13.20 your ascendant nakshathra will be Ashwini, which is defined as the physician to gods in Vedas. That would mean that you are a healer and would spread positivity wherever you go. Such people can excel as doctors, nurses, mentors, coaches and counselers.
