Rising Sign (Ascendant) FAQ

Unknown birth time!

  • Ask your parents
  • Look into the pregnancy passport
  • Look into your certification of birth
  • Ask the hospital.

The rising sign is changing every 2 hours. If you can't find out your time of birth, you can read through all rising signs. One of them is yours. You can also ask a good friend if the chosen rising sign fits you.

Unknown birth place!

It's important to know your birthplace because of the time zone. So it matters if you were born in London or New York at 12 a.m.

My rising sign is wrong!

The other website got a different result; your calculator is wrong!

Most of the rising sign calculators on the web are not using the right timezone (inc. daylight saving time). The rising sign is changing every 2 hours. So, it's very important to know the right time to have the correct result. We have a very sophisticated calculation tool, so, in most of the cases, we have the right result. (In very rare cases, our tool is also wrong. If a person were born in Vienna in September 1945 (after the end of war), there could be three different time zones - depending on the current district.)

What means „house“ regarding astrology?

The houses or similarly designated fields divide the horoscope into twelve (12) sections. Each house is assigned to a particular zodiac sign. Astrology symbolizes assessment values of characters. „The houses“ refer to the position of the earth.  

By rotation of the earth, once every 24h, you get distinct projected images of the zodiac signs at different times. These projections of the zodiac signs are recorded by the houses. 

On top of the 1st house, you find the starting point, the ascendant. Each zodiac sign can represent the ascendant depending on time and place of birth. 

The Ascendant is the sign that rises on the eastern horizon at the time of birth.

Rising Sign - Ascendant

The Ascendant (abbreviation AC) is the sign that rises on the eastern horizon at the 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 besides the place of birth. The term ascendant derived from the Latin origin „ascendere“ which has the meaning „rising“.  

So this fact is significant for individual horoscope charts. With particular regard to the sun sign compatibility:

The sun sign dictates the personality and individual quality of thoughts. The ascendant represents and shows the reaction of a person’s environment and surroundings – the interactions and exchange towards others.       


The axis on the horizon is precisely located opposite the descendant – ascendant and descendant are situated as opponents. 

Contrary to the ascendant that defines one person’s characteristics, the descendant makes obvious what the lack is. The descendant points to the missing link, the lack of what is absent. It offers a chance how to handle in situations that demand too much. It symbolizes what has to be learned and improved.  

The descendent represents the outside and outside influences that impact on a person. It is a challenge to react and interact under the influence of the descendant.

It is a prosperous platform to be confronted with the so-called „you“ from a psychologist’s perspective.    

Concerning relationship and concepts of togetherness, the descendent has a crucial importance. It offers the experience of how to become more satisfied with a relationship.
