Why Your Rising Sign Shapes Your Wardrobe
What is your sign?
Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Leo, Libra…or others?
Your Sun sign is the essence of who you are, but your ascendant, also known as yourrising sign, is how you portray yourself to the world.
The sign of the zodiac that was coming up over the Eastern horizon when you were born is your rising sign, and it plays a major role in your natal horoscope, your personal chart. Your chart ascendant is the exact degree of that sign, but the terms “rising sign” and “ascendant” are often used interchangeably.
Aries: The “Warrior” archetype serves to project and protect the identity. These folks are here to develop courage, channel vitality into constructive challenges and take a proactive approach to life. Aries need to face the world with their inner confidence, so feeling powerful and comfortable regardless of the setting is essential. Sleek, sporty and sexy, or power suited for the office; your physical body has to feel and look strong to let your true-self shine. Aries’ ruler is confident Mars and the placement of planet Mars in the chart is important.
Taurus: An earthy, solid dependability serves to ground and channel the personality into methodical, practical action. Sensuality guides expression and purpose. Serenity, simplicity and music are your allies. Taurus appreciates classic looks and sensual fabrics.

Accessories and a touch of whimsy help your personality shine. Inventive Mercury is Gemini’s ruler and the position of Mercury in the chart is important.
