To gain a more expansive and total view of the current astrological energies at play merging with our own personal energy it is of great benefit to know not only our sun sign, but also our Ascendant as well.
As well as the other zodiac signs that make up our natal chart these weave together in order to bring about our daily experience of ourselves. If our Sun sign is our Spirit, the ascendant is our Personality, and it would do us well to be aware and know both. The Ascendant (or rising sign) is often considered the mask one wears when meeting others. Perhaps it is most aptly thought of as the automatic responses to one’s environment. The unconscious part of our nature that is always in operation.
The Ascendant shows our natural defenses and how we cope with day-to-day issues.
The energies of the sign and condition of the Ascendant are most overt and obvious to others.
The Ascendant shows an individual’s first, natural reaction to new people and situations.
When considering any of our tarot readings on the Divine Spark Facebook page or YouTube channel, watch both your sun sign and ascendant as they will come together to give you a more rounded overview of the energy of the time.
At Divine Spark, yet we recognise the richness in blending these arts for a more holistic understanding of your life. There are many Astrologers whom are gifted in calculating your chart at the moment of your birth and gifted at relaying to you exactly what is impacting your life right now as a result of that "time stamp" so we are better able to navigate the phases we all must move through energetically in this life.
The tarot compliments this, and uncovers the themes and learning that we may be experiencing at any given juncture of our evolution.
As you view your sun sign reading, then also watch your ascendant and allow both readings to give you a more full story of what is playing out for your in your environment. Sometimes one will resonate more fully than the other and that is perfectly normal, just stay with the process and be open minded to what unfolds.
