You certainly know about your characteristics and personality attributes based on your sun sign or zodiac sign, but do you know what your Ascendant personality looks like? In this article, we will talk about the Aries Ascendant or Aries Rising Sign. In Vedic astrology, it is called Mesha Lagna.
In astrology, the combination of Sun, Moon and Ascendant describes what you want (Sun), what you need (Moon), and how you will go about getting it (Ascendant).
So are you an Aries ascendant? Your ascendant sign can be calculated with the help of your birth details. Take the help of an astrologer to learn of your lagna.
Aries Ascendant Personality Traits: A person with an Aries ascendant personality is independent. You like to take responsibility for achieving your goals on your own steam. If the ruling planet Mars is weak in the chart or is aspected by Saturn (Shani) or Rahu (the ascending node of Moon depicted by a dragon’s head), the individual will be short-tempered. The native may also feel indecisive, restless and uncertain in life.
Aries Ascendant Physical Traits: Governed by Mars, Aries ascendant natives resemble the qualities of the fiery and energetic planet, Mars. Such natives are straightforward and quick-natured. They anger quickly but the outburst is usually short-lived. Another tendency of the Aries rising sign is that they act without thinking. They trust their instincts and go with the flow without worrying about the outcome. Arians tend to walk rapidly with their head leaning somewhat forward.
Aries Ascendant Mental Traits: An Arian ascendant’s ruling planet Mars represents vitality and force which causes swift actions and speedy decisions. Such natives are optimistic and impulsive while making decisions. You love challenges and have a fighting spirit; you don’t like defeat. You are strong-headed; nothing can pull you down. You're someone who always likes to stay ahead of others.
Aries Ascendant Love and Compatibility: Natives with an Aries rising sign are generally lucky in love depending on the placement of the planet Venus in their kundali or birth chart.
