Rising Sign - Ascendant
The Ascendant (abbreviation AC) is the sign that rises on the eastern horizon at time of birth – more precisely the point of intersection on the eastern horizon and ecliptic. Caused by the rotation of the earth’s axis this sign changes every 2h. So within 24h each zodiac sign passes – hence it is important to address the time of the birth beside the place of birth. The term ascendant derived from the Latin origin „ascendere“ which has the meaning „rising“.
