Rising Sign (Ascendant) FAQ

Calculate your ascendant - I don't know the time of birth!

Often the time of birth is written in the baptismal certificate, in the mother-child passport, or in the birth certificate. But if you can't ask your mother or she doesn't remember, then you have a problem. If an astrologer cannot find out the time, he usually takes noon as the time for the horoscope creation. But this does not help in the calculation because it changes every two hours. If you have no other option, then you click through all 12 and see if one fits particularly well - or which comes into the closer choice. (A friend should also check the self-assessment... maybe he has an entirely different view).

I don't know the place of birth!

The place is also crucial, as is time. However, it is not so important if you know exactly where you were born. A few miles up or down do not change the result substantially. (Unless you were born exactly on the border of a time zone, then you need to know exactly).

What is a house in astrology?

The "houses," also called "fields," divide the horoscope into twelve sections. Each house can be assigned a sign of the zodiac. In astrology, character predispositions are symbolized by the relationship of the planets to each other. The houses refer to the view from the earth.

Due to the earth's rotation, once in 24 hours, different projection images of the zodiac signs are obtained at other times. This projection of the zodiac signs onto the earth is captured by the "houses". Accordingly, the apex of the first house is the rising point, the ascendant. The ascendant sign can be any of the twelve signs of the zodiac - depending on the time and place of birth.
