Ascendant in the Constellations - interpretation resources

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon May 08, 2017 11:54 am

The Ascendant sign is regarded of almost no importance by Siderealists.I routinely ignore it.

I do believe it has some significance, but of so superficial a facade of expression that I tend to see through it so fast as to miss it. Some superficial traits do tend to anchor to the Ascendant sign, such as a nickname or sobriquette, popular images of celebrities, etc.

Statistical studies of, say, character traits do produce significant results for the Ascendant, but they are only about as strong as, say, the Jupiter sign - that is, not much! Actually, the Midheaven sign shows better in most cases. Since the Midheaven and Ascendant signs are inherently (mathematically) connected, it makes sense that if you are going to interpret them at all, you do so only as a pair.

Mostly, only the findings derived from the Gauquelin data are given below.

Ascendant in Leo

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon May 08, 2017 11:56 am

Notebook #93 observations: I see two broad types of Leo Ascendant folks: Those who are really turbulent individuals who didn't know how to function in their lives, and those who persist in commitments, and generally are very effective in managing their lives (and are some of the most wonderful and service-minded of people). This may be a basic test for Leo Ascendant: can they live practically, or only be "legends in their own minds."

CHARACTER TRAITS:
Significantly high: Witty, generous, sincere, passionate
Significantly low: Traveller, methodical, cold
(Italicized traits also showed for a Taurus Midheaven. Underlined traits also showed for an Aries Midheaven.)

U.S. PRESIDENTS: Calvin Coolidge, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard M. Nixon, George Bush, Donald Trump

Garth Allen, AAM 4/57 wrote:It may be just one of those incredible "coincidences" ... [of 25 cases of drowning or "death by water" in his files] 10 have the constellation Virgo rising, which places Pisces on the Descendant or ?cusp of death" a significantly abnormal number of times. There are numerous references in old sources to the connection between Pisces and drowning, and one early text flatly inks death by drowning to what we call the "mutable" signs of the Zodiac. And, as Cyril Fagan rightly pointed out... there appears to be a unanimous agreement that the 7th house is the "house of death."

[After a longer discussion, concentrated on the possible need of astrologers to reassess what the Ascendant means, and hedging that this is all preliminary thinking, he anticipates Ebertin by suggesting, "...if the manner of death does bear a relationship to the way the Zodiac is draped around the natal cusps, some revisions in doctrine are necessary, for it will mean that the Ascendant's effect is primarily environmental..." - JAE]

Ascendant in Sagittarius

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon May 08, 2017 11:59 am

Notebook #93 observations: Frequently seem as if they have other vistas or dreams they want to explore, other horizons to dance off toward.

CHARACTER TRAITS:
Significantly high: Pessimistic, energetic
Significantly low: Traveller, impassioned, poet, idealist
(Italicized traits also showed for a Libra Midheaven. Underlined traits also showed for a Virgo Midheaven.)

NOTE: This Ascending sign is one of the best examples of why I persist in putting essentially no emphasis on the Ascendant sign. Its findings are almost perfectly opposite what one might theorize for Sagittarius.

U.S. PRESIDENTS: (none)
