The Ascendant

Sagittarius SymbolThe world is filled with adventure, new things to experience, and, most of all, hope, with this Ascendant. There is an unmistakable faith and enthusiasm with Sagittarius rising people. Grand schemes, big promises, and a willingness to explore and experiment are themes, although follow-through is not a strong characteristic of Sagittarius. 

These individuals are somewhat restless and often active people. They always seem to be looking for something that is just out of grasp -- and many do this their entire lives. They can be quite direct at times, yet they are likable enough to forgive for their faux-pas. Most have a lot to say and offer. Their insights and opinions are usually interesting and exciting, although sometimes lacking in details.

Sagittarius rising people have opinions about everything, and they just love telling others exactly what they are. Not all people with this position are outgoing folk, but they all have a way of moving about that at least exudes a certain level of confidence. Some might even call them naive or overly optimistic. Even the quiet ones don't shrink from life and from experience.

One of the most obvious and endearing traits of Sagittarius rising is their willingness to keep up a sense of humor. Even when they're feeling low, they manage to find humor in life and have fun with whatever they do have. The placement of Sagittarius' ruling planet, Jupiter, will give more clues to how they go about expressing themselves. Jupiter in Capricorn, for example, might give a more sarcastic approach, but underneath there lies an unmistakable hope and spirit for living.

The characteristics of Sagittarius Ascendant described above are modified by planets conjunct the Ascendant, planets that aspect the Ascendant, and the position of the ruling planet of the sign on the Ascendant. For example, a person with a Sagittarius Ascendant with its ruling planet, Jupiter, in Libra will respond to the environment a little differently than another person, also with a Sagittarius Ascendant, but whose Jupiter is in Scorpio. Similarly, a person with a Sagittarius Ascendant who also has Saturn conjunct it will "behave" differently than someone with a Sagittarius Ascendant who does not have that aspect in their natal charts.

Sagittarius Rising with Jupiter (Ruler of Sagittarius) in the Signs

The following interpretations incorporate the position, by sign, of Jupiter, the ruling planet of Sagittarius. The sign position of Jupiter modifies your Sagittarius Ascendant characteristics. These interpretations are from the Karmic Insight Report, and are written from an esoteric viewpoint.

The point that was on the eastern horizon at the moment of your birth is called the ASCENDANT, or rising sign. While the Sun describes your conscious direction and current life focus, and the Moon your subconscious predisposition and past, the Ascendant indicates a way of being that transcends and embraces past, present, and future. It describes the way you engage and merge with the outer world and how you bring through into life the energies depicted by the Sun, the Moon, and the rest of your birth chart. Everything is filtered through the Ascendant from an esoteric point of view. It indicates your soul's function and thus a key part of your destiny.

Sagittarius Rising - General

Faith, belief and the ability to foresee and envision the future or "what could be" are essential elements of your soul function. You may well be ahead of your time or at the fore front of coming trends and movements in the collective. You are a seeker, one who searches for the overview, the larger pattern, or a broad, over-arching philosophy of life - and also a teacher who conveys that vision or broadcasts it in some way. Your ruling planet is Jupiter.

Sagittarius Rising and Jupiter in Aries

Your Jupiter in Aries suggests that leadership, spearheading new enterprises, and adventurously exploring new territory are part of your soul function. Positivity and action are key qualities. However, overblown enthusiasm, not knowing limits, and a lack of humility or of follow through on your inspired plans can create non-fulfillment of your greatest potential.

Sagittarius Rising and Jupiter in Taurus

Your Jupiter in Taurus suggests that in addition to vision and optimism, you have the practicality and stability to bring your dreams into concrete manifestation. You are gifted along material and financial lines, and are generous with your gifts. Business is a natural avenue of expression for you. Using the fruits of the earth wisely is a key to your fulfillment.

Sagittarius Rising and Jupiter in Gemini

Your Jupiter in Gemini suggests that your role is to be a messenger, which will involve educating, spreading ideas or information, communicating, or facilitating communications between others.

Sagittarius Rising and Jupiter in Cancer

Your Jupiter is in Cancer, which suggests that building a sense of community, of family, of support and nourishment for everyone is an important aspect of your soul function. Your compassion and empathy expresses itself as generosity. Though broad in your thinking and concerns, home and loyalty to your origins is very important to you.

Sagittarius Rising and Jupiter in Leo

Your Jupiter is in Leo, which suggests the great warmth, enthusiasm, heart, and generosity of spirit that infuses your expression. You love the color, drama, and celebration of life, and are gifted with a contagious confidence. Extravagance could be a temptation, for you cannot conceive of doing anything on a modest scale. Large plans and organizing major productions are your forte.

Sagittarius Rising and Jupiter in Virgo

Your Jupiter in Virgo suggests that in addition to your vision and your ability to see the big picture, you have highly developed critical and intellectual faculties. You believe very strongly in education and lifelong learning. You are meant to translate your philosophical beliefs into concrete, practical service, and are particularly suited to education, medicine, law - or somehow combining these together. (Teaching about health and "natural laws", for instance).

Sagittarius Rising and Jupiter in Libra

Your Jupiter in Libra suggests that your role is to promote your ideals of harmony, peacemaking, cooperation, true friendship, and understanding between people. You may do this formally (through, say interpersonal mediation or international good will programs) or simply in your one-to-one interactions as you go through your daily life.

Sagittarius Rising and Jupiter in Scorpio 

Your Jupiter in Scorpio suggests you have a remarkable understanding of life's inner workings and you can access deep transformative energies for healing yourself and others. An unusually thorough investigator, it is your ability to probe into the darkest places and to see what others can not or do not wish to see, that holds the key to fulfilling your fate.

Sagittarius Rising and Jupiter in Sagittarius

Your Jupiter is in Sagittarius as well, signifying that you are a generalist with intuitive perception of whole patterns and systems, and a far-reaching, expansive, wide-open view of reality. Like William Blake you spend much time in "the heavens". Philosophy and the religious dimension of life are key elements in your life and fate.

Sagittarius Rising and Jupiter in Capricorn

Your Jupiter is in the earthy, ambitious sign of Capricorn, suggesting that you apply your ability to see whole patterns and systems in a practical context, perhaps, in business enterprises, or administration.

You blend vision with realism, hope and optimism with pragmatic strategy, heaven and earth - and this is the key to your fate and your function.

Sagittarius Rising and Jupiter in Aquarius

Your Jupiter is in humanitarian, idealistic Aquarius, suggesting that global issues, understanding whole patterns and systems, and spreading a message across the world is an important part of your fate and function. The uniting of humanity or of spiritual brethren for an evolutionary purpose is a part of this.

Sagittarius Rising and Jupiter in Pisces

Your Jupiter is in the imaginative, all-embracing and compassionate sign of Pisces, suggesting that altruism and unselfish giving are innate and natural for you. Your love of the ocean and/or foreign travel play an important role in your fate.

A Spiritual Interpretation of Sagittarius Rising

The following interpretation of Sagittarius Rising is from Your Spiritual Path Report.

"You are driven by especially human motivations as you pursue your spiritual life. Your rising sign, Sagittarius, governs the hips and thighs. It is the arrangement of these parts of the body that allows humans to stand upright and walk. Translate this metaphorically to your spiritual life - upright thinking and attention to your spiritual path are a reflection of your capacity to maximize human potential on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels.

In addition to the above capabilities, you have the capacity to use intuition in your life. You can envision the future better than most people. When you match your intuitive sensibility to your spiritual aspiration, you find that your path becomes easy to identify and to follow. The more you use your intuition, the more useful it becomes. Your intuitive ability rests in your intellectual development, so it is important to educate yourself well. In your studies you are often able to leap to the answer. It is important for you to fill in the blanks, even if it means going back, so that you learn how to solve more and more difficult problems.

You experience your soul's calling early in life. Other people may put down your budding ideas, but you gather these thoughts to yourself and nurture them. You trust that these ideas have come to you for some reason. You are able to recall them in moments of crisis, and you find you can communicate profound sentiments with few words. You have material ambitions, yes, but you also have spiritual aspirations. You will find that right spiritual aspiration often brings suitable material satisfaction in its wake.

Because your rising sign is connected to the hips and thighs, you may find that walking meditation, Tai Ch'I, or other contemplative movement suits your spiritual development. Sitting may not help you to focus, while walking meditation may allow your thoughts to settle and your intuition to arise."

Sagittarius Ascendant from the Cosmo Natal Report:

"High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, you love adventure, change, exploring new territory, and are not happy confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. You have a strong restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything you've yet experienced, and you often live in your dreams and visions for the future. You tend to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else and you like to keep moving, either literally or figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, you always expect something better ahead. You love to have a goal, something to aim for, but once you achieve it you are on to something else. You are ever on the lookout for new opportunities and you are a gambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of discovering something new is what makes life interesting for you. You have great faith in life and bounce back quickly from disappointment and failure.

Freedom-loving and independent, you cannot tolerate being caged for very long, and friends and loved ones must respect your need for freedom of movement. Binding commitments and responsibilities often weigh heavily upon you and you may resist "growing up" and taking on the limitations of adult life.

You are friendly and outgoing and have a great sense of fun and playfulness. You are also philosophically minded and often quite outspoken about your convictions and beliefs. Sometimes you get carried away with your enthusiasm of the moment and you tend to exaggerate. You are often a big talker, full of big promises, and you are usually pretty convincing. You do everything in a big way, a generous way. You like to have the best, and you heartily dislike stinginess, littleness, or pettiness. Your vision is always large. You are able to perceive the big picture, general patterns and principles, and are well suited to politics, business, higher education or religion.

Other people see you as a good sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent and dependable. You may also be seen as a wise person since you do not get bogged down in pettiness and trivialities, and are able to communicate a larger way of looking at situations, one that opens up new potentials. You are a person who believes in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never gives up on life, and you inspire and encourage others to keep looking forward."
