Aries Rising Sign - Aries Ascendant
Those with Aries rising will make a considerable impact on others. They will instigate large, successful projects, and will devote much of their time and energy to the achievement of horrendously ambitious objectives.
Their powerful motivation is not so much downright ambition for success in the usual worldly sense of the word indeed, it is often the case that such things as a huge house and expensive possessions do not mean a very great deal to them but they are prompted to ever greater efforts by the steady advancement of opponents or rivals who seem to be overtaking them.
The tendency to selfishness can show itself in what seems to be ruthlessness, for if they were to give consideration to others, they would of necessity have to interrupt the flow of their own energy and concentration on main objectives.
There is in the Rising-sign Arien an element of their personality which will emerge in their attitude to their partners kindness, lovingness, and the search for a well-balanced, harmonious life. In other words, where the most important man or woman in their life is concerned, they express themselves in the manner of their polar or opposite sign across the Zodiac, which is Libra. This is something that will almost certainly go unnoticed by even close friends; it is reserved for partners.
The drive and sense of urgency in life is overwhelmingly powerful when Aries rises; it is of prime importance to them. They need to set themselves objectives which will motivate and reward them. It is only in this way that they will achieve a sense of fulfillment, and burn up all their energy emotional and physical in a really rewarding way, quelling restlessness, impatience and negative aggression.
