What Is Your Rising Sign?

Get to know your true self.


The big three: 

  • Sun - ego and motivations
  • Moon - emotions
  • Rising - our projections

All three outline our personalities and I’m diving into one of them… your rising sign! 

What is a rising sign? - you ask. It represents your outer layer, the mask you wear when meeting people. ‘It’s the sign that was rising on the Eastern horizon the moment you were born.’ Does “you don’t give off Libra energy” ring a bell? That person is likely identifying your rising sign. 

To calculate, you need to know your exact birth time. Getting this right is vital, as your rising sign alters every minute! The online astrology calculator is the quickest way to find out - here. Alternatively, you can download an app onto your phone like Nebula. I use this app to help calculate not only my main three but my houses - we can get into that one another time! 

Here’s a quick debrief of what your rising sign means:

Capricorn, Taurus & Virgo - Earth Rising

To others, you can come across as slightly materialistic - but it’s due to your love of the world. You present yourself as practical and easygoing. You relish the luxuries and comforts of life! 

Aries, Leo & Sagittarius - Fire Rising

You can appear somewhat confrontational and blunt, but your intentions mean well. All eyes are on you! You’ll represent yourselves as confident, positive, assertive - ‘the life of the party.’ You make sure everyone is enjoying themselves and a true extrovert - although we all know you’re an introvert deep down! 

Pisces, Cancer & Scorpio - Water Rising 

An empathic and sensitive character, you’re the mum of the group - a nurturer. You ooze mystery, and people see your caring side straight away!

Aquarius, Gemini & Libra - Air Rising


You project a warm and friendly nature. You’re great with communication and love a good gossip. You appear approachable, and people feel comfortable in your presence - a sociable butterfly!
