The ascendant ( , Asc or As) is the astrological sign (and degree of that sign) that is ascending on the eastern horizon at the specific time and location of an event.
Ascendant, known as 'lagna' in Vedic terms, is one of the most important concepts in all of astrology. It is also known as 'The Ascending Sign'. Now there are a lot of really nice articles out there explaining the characteristics of people with different ascendants or why it is so important.
There are very few articles that explain what it is in a simple way. And it's also one of the common questions we get here on this channel, 'rising in power or influence.' In the astrological context, it means 'the sign that rises on the eastern horizon in a certain place and at a certain time'.
But WHAT IN THE WORLD DOES IT MEAN? And why is it called the rising sign? Let's see what it really means. Let's start with a sunrise. We see the sun rise in the east and set in the west.
But we know it only seems like that. The sun stays while the earth revolves and revolves around it looks like the sun rises in the morning on the eastern horizon and so inks on the western horizon. Let's choose a random place on earth and mark it with this marker.
From this point the line pointing east looks like this, and similarly the line pointing west looks like this. Now, when the earth rotates, we see that the sun rises over the east line when we see the sun rise. And when the sun crosses the west line, we see the sunset.
This applies not only to the sun, but to all stars. All the stars will be seen rise in the east and set in the west, let's go to a real place and see what it looks like, suppose you're standing here, we can see the sun rise in the east and after it sets in the west we see the stars rising from the eastern horizon. Actually, stars also rise over the eastern horizon during the day.
We just can't see them during the day. These countless stars in the sky now also include the stars of the zodiac 12 constellations, which are more or less evenly around the earth. These divide the sky around the earth into 12 sectors.
Now, as the earth rotates, these signs can be seen just like the sun rising from the east. Let's see what that looks like. Now Ascendant is nothing more than the sign currently rising over the eastern horizon.
It takes the earth about 24 hours to complete one rotation around its axis, so in 24 hours all 12 signs ascend in sequence. So one sign lasts about 2 hours on the eastern horizon. So we can say that the ascendant is in one place changes roughly every 2 hours.
Since they are seen rising above the horizon, they are called 'The Rising Sign'. It should now be noted that the ascendant is location-dependent. At some point the ascendant is seen from e.g.
New Delhi, India is different from New York, USA. Let's see this in action. If we draw the east line here we can see that the ascendant is Scorpio and at the same moment when we choose another place we say here.
We can see that the ascendant for this place is Leo; Si milar there is another ascendant in another place. This is analogous to the time change in different parts of the world. In the Vedic system, the ascendant is always placed in the first house when drawing up a natal chart.
For example, if the Ascendant is Sagittarius at the time and place of birth, its corresponding number: 9 is entered in the natal chart. We'll talk more about natal charts in the upcoming articles. Thank you for watching and please consider subscribing.

(laughs) How did I not know? - I'm an Aries and you guessed me to be a Taurus.- Yes, you are a Taurus.- I was born in April 19th, so I'm on the threshold, so when it's close is the threshold from Aries to Taurus.
You have Taurus qualities as well as Aries qualities and that turns out to be your problem. Aries wants to go and a Taurus says is that it? Well worth it, should I really do that and so on?

Didn't you have any trouble feeling worthless or of no value until you were around 18 - Yes - It was in college? into someone who told you how amazing you really are - yes - well, if I know what time it is and so on, I can really figure that out, but you know just the sun sign is a little bit heavy. - I met my biological mother when I was 19 - Ah - Oh my god, yes - And she said I love you - Yes. (Laughs) - I'm stunned right now - So what are you thinking about Astrology (mumbles)? - I find the zodiac sign itself a bit too broad and vague and can apply to everyone else. - Do you know when you were born? - I dont know. - Not at all, nothing. - No, I have no idea.
I'm more concerned about the time of my death than I was when I was born. - Do you have any other way to waste time? - Wasting time? - Sure, I mean, thinking about death. - I don't think about it much. - Oh , you do not do that? - No. - Okay, so you're a twin, I see you starting out from one side of a problem. (laughs) - You have me, you have me - Stay like that - He's a magnet. (laughs) So when were you born - Uh, 6:15 - 6:15 am Taurus, the sun has just risen (mumbles). .- Yes, I started going to school about a year ago, but then we had some bad things unless I died, so I quit.- Who passed? - My son. - Your son - Yes.
You still have a reason to live. Your son is still with you, he is still encouraging you. You can go forward and he would definitely appreciate that.
Thank you - Welcome - So you're a Scorpio? - That's me - People go woo la la. (Laughs) - I think a lot of people's perception of Scorpios is really intense and more mysterious. I can see myself as intense see, not entirely mysterious, but I could imagine how it could be to a certain extent.- The thing with Scorpio, despite the fact that you really like it, you must have a relationship.- Do I have to? ? (laughs) I can't just, can't it just be my job. (laughs) - Oh yes, it was a lot of fun.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. (Applause)
