A new degree of the Zodiac appears to ascend on the eastern horizon every four minutes and a new sign every 2 hours. The Ascendant is always that point on the eastern horizon where Sun appears to rise in the morning. The moment the child takes his first breath and begins his active relationship with this world is Ascendant. In terms of nature of signs, Ascendants have characteristic features.

The physical features, characteristics, marks, health, finance and profession indicated by each sign are dealt with in general. Planets occupying these signs will modify these results. Only when there is no planet in the sign, can the effect of these be noticed without deviation. The qualities of the sign will be manifest, all the more, if its lords are positioned therein. Like a coin which has two different sides, each sign presents two characteristics good and bad. Depending on other factors, these characteristics will be modified. Benefic like Jupiter and Venus in Ascendant mitigate the evil and offer more agreeable results. Malefic like Saturn and Mars in the Ascendant spoil the good nature and bring out the latent bad qualities into action. Similarly, the general physical features indicated by each sign may vary from normal, due largely to the planets occupying the sign.
