Do you wonder what determines our behavior, reactions and the way we interact with people? Do we choose it ourselves how others see us and the kind of impression they form about us? Or there is something that is responsible for our outward characteristics and mannerisms? Well, the answer to this lies in astrology. The rising sign aka Ascendant or the Lagna represents our physical attributes and our demeanor.
There are twelve houses in our natal chart out of which, four are very significant. First house is called Ascendant, fourth house is about family and home, seventh house which pertains to unions and marriage, and the tenth house signifies your career and professional life.
