There are times when people just can’t identify with the attributes of their Sun or Moon sign. In fact, they may feel that they are an antithesis of their zodiac sign. You may also have observed it. Your Leo friend may not seek attention, may be because he or she has a Capricorn ascendant. Your Sagittarius friend is very possessive, may be because he or she has a Scorpio Ascendant. It is easy to understand why some people do not correspond to their Sun or Moon signs once you know about what is the rising sign or Ascendant in a horoscope. Ascendant is the degree of the zodiac sign that was highest on the Easter horizon at the time and place of birth. When seen from Earth, the sky seems to move, so the entire zodiac can be observed in a span of 24 hours day which means the rising sign changes on the Eastern horizon every 2 hours because there are 12 zodiac signs. People tend to associate their physical, emotional and spiritual attributes more with rising sign at times.
While most astrology books focus on sun signs only, the most obvious things about us -- our personality and physical type -- are mostly determined by the zodiac sign on the eastern horizon at the precise moment of birth. This sign is referred to as our "rising sign". Whereas the sun sign represents the ego expression, the rising sign signifies physical type and personality, which are the tools we use to get what we want. This book guides readers toward an accurate assessment of their rising signs, and then shows how, in conjunction with oneAEs sun sign, understanding the meaning of the rising sign will enable you to get what you want out of life. ItAEs an astrology book with a promise, and it has a unique focus.
Esoteric Astrology – Vol. 5 Rising Signs - Libra through Pisces The Theory, Interpretation and Practice. This publication takes a new and revitalised look at astrology. It is simple to understand, yet remains a powerful tool, capable of providing a solid foundation for the comprehension of this broad and magnificent subject. This textbook, like most of Dr. Baker’s printed books, eBooks and DVDs, enhances your studies via many charts, lists, tables and images (over 100 in this one). This major work is a very comprehensive introduction for those who want to study this subject in earnest, and for the more advanced student it will serve as an essential reference manual. In today's computer-based world it is no longer necessary to spend hours calculating a horoscope when the most modest PCs can do it in seconds, and with 100% accuracy! Consequently the needless paraphernalia, usually associated with learning astrology, has been stripped away. Emphasis is placed on the application of astrology to the unique problems of the modern world, its use as a method of revealing purpose and meaning in life, and ultimately as a key to the psychosynthesis of personality. The horoscope is described in comprehensive detail, with special attention given to the esoteric ruling planets of the zodiac signs, which are more relevant than orthodox rulers in the charts of spiritually-minded people. The new rulers also accommodate the immense changes in external conditions and inner consciousness that have occurred in the last hundred years and are related to a new range of experience which the brain registers as the externa of the modern world. The significance of karma is represented for it gives dramatic effect to our daily actions, and the third factor of esoteric psychology, lying beyond our understanding of heredity and environment, is given full prominence. This integrative and enriching work can be read alone, as a fascinating introduction and foundation to the New Astrology, or can be followed up with the author's extensive range of astrological books and video tapes, audio lectures and the all-embracing Dictionary of Astrology for the 21st Century. Together they provide a complete system for the professional and novice alike, containing efficient and extraordinary techniques of interpretation which have never been used before and which halve the time required to assimilate and practise astrology.

This book, a transcript of the second term of Clare Martin's introductory course in astrology given for the Centre for Psychological Astrology, continues her clear, insightful and innovative presentation of the basics of astrological study. Exploring the planetary aspects and the houses of the horoscope, the ten lessons focus on the horoscope as a dynamic interweaving of polarities: not only the angles, the houses, and their related zodiacal signs are examined from the perspective of complementarity, but also the enigmatic Moon's Nodes, which are interpreted from a fresh and exciting perspective. Major and minor aspects are illuminated by examples and discussion from the group, and the importance of a missing element or aspect is discussed with originality and depth. Volume 2 of Mapping the Psyche is a superb successor to Clare's first volume on the planets and the zodical signs, and will provide solid groundwork for students taking their first steps in astrology, as well as deepening the understanding of experienced practitioners who can benefit from Clare's beautifully structured, elegant and comprehensive approach.
