Are you an Aries Ascendant?
Aries Ascendant people are one of the most interesting people among all of the zodiac signs. But before we move further, let’s make the concept of Rising Signs and Ascendant signs clear.
Your Rising Sign or Ascendant sign is the zodiac sign that was rising when you were first born in this world. This means that you may be born in the month of May which makes you a Gemini, however, if the planet Capricorn was rising during the birth time, the planet Capricorn will have a big influence on your life. Which means that Capricorn which is ruled by Saturn will have a big impact on your life.
This will contradict the personalities of a Gemini as people who have the influence of Saturn will be mature, serious and less playful hence, the Capricorn ascendant people who were born on May will not have the qualities of a Gemini. Instead, they will be serious or sometimes, just have a mix of seriousness or playfulness but they will never be extremely playful like how Geminis are.
That’s why many Geminis say “I am a Gemini but I don’t have the qualities of a Gemini, I hate to talk to people and instead just enjoy one on one conversations rather than cheering up between the crowds.” – Now you can tell that your ascendant sign really has a big influence on your personality, life, health, career, and life path.
Let’s find out who are Aries Rising Sign People.
First and foremost, people who have their rising sign as Aries are one of the most active people. That’s because Aries is ruled by the planet Mars. Natives born with this rising sign are very straightforward and strong possessing the martian qualities. They tend to be very assertive but might be perceived as aggressive in nature but in reality, they are just being assertive which is their nature.
Their life is all about being active, being physically involved into different activities like sports. They are also natural athletes and the reason why they are so active in life is because of the Planet Mars. Mars brings in the competitive nature into them and therefore, they will love competition whether it is sports, business, dating..etc. Infact, they need to have competition in order for them to thrive in life. Competition becomes a big part of their personality.
One of the most unique things about Aries Ascendant is that their house positions are very similar. Take a look at the chart below.
As you can see, the house lords are in the right houses. Right from the start which is Aries(1st house and also called ascendant) ruled by Mars. The 10th house which is also the house of Saturn has Capricorn again ruled by Saturn. The 5th house which again has Leo ruled by Sun whose mutual sign is LEO. So Aries ascendants have one of the most harmonious placements with the ruler of each houses in their own houses.
This why Aries Ascendant people make very good leaders.
Aries people being ruled by Mars are energetic, determined but they can also become very egoistic. Since the ascendant sign is all about the natives personality and the native as a person, therefore, Aries as the rising sign makes them feel that they don’t need anyone and they can have too much of ego. Something like “I am the best” or “I don’t need anyone’s help”. The Positive side of this is that Aries ascendants are very independent, they can live by themselves, take care of themselves at a very young age and stand on their feet and also nurture themselves.

Their way of parenting children is through activities and physical activities. Aries ascendant people will encourage their children to participate in sports and different co-curricular activities. Essentially, they want their children to also be very competitive in life.
Their work life is always full of hurdles and competition in a positive way. It’s not because nature has given all the problems to them but it’s due to their unique competitive personality that they love to tackle problems. Aries people have goals, they see themselves taking charge of their life and moving forward towards their goals and vision. Being leaders they want control in their life and they do it very well.

So, even if an Aries person is sitting still, or just buying items and products from the mall, they will be constantly try to get the best prices or best products.

This means that Saturn which is the planet which delays things and brings in obstacles is going to give Aries people a lot of hurdles in their life, especially their career. This does not mean that their life will be full of hardships.
