Aquarius and Capricorn rising: its meaning
Aquarius and Capricorn Ascendant in your horoscope
These two signs are ruled by Saturn, the god of Time, and they both are of a dry, disembodied, but genuine, and independent nature. They endow you with a long-term vision and intellectual rigour, and prompt you to pay utmost importance to social and spiritual issues. This is where their similarities end.
Indeed, Aquarius is an Air sign and brings about winter storms, whereas Capricorn is an Earth sign and dwells in icy and desolate mountainous summits. As a result, you sometimes retreat into your ivory tower to devise totally unrealistic projects. With this sign combination, it seems that, rightly or wrongly, Aquarius' generosity and sociability are limited by Capricorn's caution and sense of organisation.
In any case, it is certain that you do not lack ambition and intellectual depth, or idealism, to put it simply. When you are in society, you come across as a circumspect and humble person to people who meet you for the first time.
As they get to know you better, they discover that you are more original than at first glance, and they are often pleasantly surprised by your off-beat mind and your clear-sightedness. Moreover, they appreciate that, despite your non-negotiable need for freedom, your loyalty towards your friends stands the test of time.

The Ascendant and the Sun in sign
If you have a doubt about your sign or your Ascendant, you can get it immediately.
The rising sign, i.e. the sign which crosses the eastern horizon at the moment of birth, is a major element of the natal chart because it describes our general behaviour and our outward appearance and indicates how people perceive us when they meet us for the first time.
It is important to grasp the difference between the Ascendant sign - the rising sign - and the Sun sign, i.e., the sign in which the Sun is posited at the moment of birth. Unlike the Ascendant, the Sun sign refers to the deepest part of us which is more genuine but less accessible because it is meant for our friends and relatives only.
Your Sun sign is Aquarius, which means that it is only when people know you well that your Aquarius traits become obvious. They may be different from your outward appearance, which is influenced by your Ascendant sign.
Your Ascendant sign is Capricorn, which means that, at first glance, people feel the influence of Capricorn on your outward appearance It may be different from your inner self, which defined by your Sun sign.
