Libra and Aries rising: its meaning

Libra and Aries Ascendant in your horoscope

Since these two signs face one another in the zodiacal wheel, you are torn between your need for reciprocity and compromise on the one hand, and your urge to go it alone, on the other hand. It is some sort of Venus versus Mars struggle.

Owing to your Aries Ascendant, you gladly assert yourself in society, and you do so with a lively and swift responsiveness which impresses or shock people who are shyer. Frankness and lack of hidden agenda would have described your outward appearance quite accurately if your Libra Sun were not there to keep a watchful eye or shine in a different direction.


You long for harmonious, respectful, and warm relations, and in hindsight, you sometimes regret the lack of tact which does not match your inner self. You are a born perfectionist and artist, and you strive to find the happy medium and a soothing balance, which you are not certain to achieve since it requires constant readjustments.

In your case, Aries may strengthen Libra's need to right the wrongs, as well as its enterprising spirit of initiative because they are both Cardinal signs. Therefore, whether you are the diplomat or the pushy type, you perform a perilous tightrope walker show!

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.

Libra sign

Your Sun sign is Libra, which means that it is only when people know you well that your Libra traits become obvious. They may be different from your outward appearance, which is influenced by your Ascendant sign.

Aries Ascendant

Your Ascendant sign is Aries, which means that, at first glance, people feel the influence of Aries on your outward appearance It may be different from your inner self, which defined by your Sun sign.
