The sign rising over the horizon at the time of your birth is called the Ascendant, Lagna or Rising Sign
More and more people are aware of the importance of knowing their exact time of birth in order to calculate their astrological chart. According to the exact time of birth, the first house of the chart, referred to as the ascendant or rising sign, is determined. The rising sign governs your personality, disposition and physical attributes, notably your appearance and general outlook. Its influence is powerful, but may be modified by any planets rising and the condition of the ruling planet. Knowing your ascendant and learning about the various aspects of your chart is informative and helpful.
Because the Ascendant Sign is specific to the time and place of the individual birth, it represents the environment and conditioning a person may be influenced by during their childhood. Like other Signs of the Zodiac, Rising Signs fall into fire, earth, air or water categories.
