Rising Signs and Appearance



I know I did an article on this several months ago but I deleted it because I decided that I hated it and could do better. I have also gotten better at recognizing the Rising signs and have turned it into an ongoing challenge of mine. In this video, I will tell you the ways in which I spot or sum up a person’s Ascendant. Also, I make it clear that I don’t like when people are too literal and exact about people’s physical appearance and their Ascendant, as there can be more than a few reasons why someone doesn’t match the exact physical profile. But, it doesn’t mean that’s not their Rising sign. After all, we were not born to look just alike.

  1. Yep, as a Gemini Rising I look different from one day to the next day and yes I look like two different people. People say that I look much younger than my actual age. And yes most people say I have delicate hands (I'm in love with my hands). I like doing things with my hands and when I talk I use them a lot. I had a friend who had Gemini Rising she also looked young and she also had delicate hands. Also, I noticed that their right side of the body can be a little bit different than the left side. My mind wanders a lot and I have restless energy but it's quite interesting that people don't notice it. They say I look so calm, peaceful and patient. They also say that I'm hard to read. I don't know why maybe I'm Sagittarius Sun but I also have some features of Sagittarius Rising. Such as when I'm on the bus most of the time I step on someone's toe and when I go somewhere I run into someone or something (Yeah, I'm not graceful). I also move my legs or hands a lot when I'm bored or nervous and yes when I'm nervous I have shakes in my hands or legs.

    1. Yeah I wouldn't peg Gemini as calm exactly. Libra and Aquarius can seem that way, even when they are anxious or nervous. But Gemini Rising can easily come off as a bundle of nerves, like Kristen Stewart.

      I think your Midheaven may have an influence in this regard. I have found that the Midheaven is what others think of us that we may not exactly think of ourselves, while the Ascendant is how we truly see and label ourselves.

    2. I think you're right. I know a person who has Sagittarius Rising, she has Pluto in the 12th house and it conjuncts her Ascendant. She has Plutonic appearance such as dark eyes and intense look but there's sweetness, sensuality and regal air that surrounds her. You know she's definitely Plutonic but she also has Venusian features. I never understood why she looks like Libra. But when you said about MC I understood why. Her MC is in Libra. I guess that's why I sensed Libra energy.

    3. Also Wayman I wonder do the aspects to the Ascendant plays a major role in defining the appearance?

  2. Spot on as always Wayman! I'm Libra Rising and I have often been told since I was young that I have porcelain skin and a classy yet caring aura as well.


    My husband has Aquarius Rising and you most definitely hit the nail on the head with your description! (Excuse the pun lol) He's tall with a thin, almost gangly body but he stays fit being a firefighter so it's more toned than he normally would be otherwise. He also has those blazing eyes that just sparkle with curiosity and excitement. One of my favorite things about him.

    1. Thanks! Your husband sounds a lot like me haha. Aquarius Rising men are usually lanky but still toned and strong somehow. I like to find "different", kind of effortless ways of staying in shape. I don't really care about going to the gym. I have always refused to bulk up, too, because I see it as conforming to society's body standards. Very Aquarius thing to say. :)

    2. That's so true! But your guy's presence could fill up a room, especially since I always get a "larger than life" almost celebrity "vibe" from every one I've met.

      You Aqua Risings are by far some of the coolest, most entertaining people I know that's for sure! lol I'm possibly a bit biased tho with my Aqua moon I just can't help but admire the tenacity and understated courage and perseverance you show to staying true to what you believe in despite if it's what everyone else would want or expect. Something as a Libra Rising I struggled with personally for years.

  3. I loved your perspective on the self conscious bit about Leo Rising! It is DEFINATELY my case and I feel like I'm being watched by people all the time.
    This self consciousness made me actually doubt my rising sign, because I thought Leo risings acted all confident and extraverted all the time, which is not the case for me, as Taurus Sun and Cancer Moon in the 12th house,plus Pluto in Scorpio in 4th house (I guess that contributes too?).
    But I do walk around with a lot of bravado (gotta try to ward off that self consciousness somehow) , have that lion mane hair and of course there are the times where I get all confident and super charismatic and it's awesome :)

    1. Yeah Leo is the performer so Leo people always feel "on stage" and that can sometimes shake up their confidence, even if they don't admit it because that would "look bad". That's why Leo has to sometimes project confidence even when they're not feeling like it. It's my Sun sign so I would know. :)

  5. Hi, Wayman! I love your blog. I've been binge-reading everything for days now. On the topic of rising signs, will you ever cover decans? I'm a Capricorn rising, and I'm on the voluptuous side. I discovered that being in the Taurus decan of Capricorn influences my appearance as well.

  12. SPOT ON about the Leo rising at least for me lol!! I've been told many many times throughout life that I have a cat-like look to me, especially my eyes. I also do feel eyes on me or as if I'm on stage very often haha. LOVE your interpretations!!
