How the Libra Can "Partner Up" --- Being the Effective Social Personality of Aries Ego
So,what is a Rising Sign?
Its NOT Just where the Sun is...Its also the Hour of Your Birth...Combined with Your Sun Sign.
There are 12 Rising Sign Possibilities, and they are the signs acting in a specific role
OK. There are 12 basic Sun Signs, and they are clustered around your 24 hour day. The planets Mercury, Venus, (Earth), Mars, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto. As the planets move they take their positions around the circle. When you are born, you are tagged within the 30 day "sign". So, let's say you are an Aries.
When you awake, you catch the sun's morning rays, at sun set, the earth keeps spinning for its next turn ---- THE RISING. But as the earth keeps turning EACH 2 HOURS, a new sign "appears" at the EASTERN HORIZON. Babies are certainly born, ANY TIME.
My eldest was born in 1971 as a Virgo. He was born at 6:31 AM. SO, his Rising Sign is Virgo Rising.
My second was a darling girl --- a Cancer. She was born at 8:30 PM on a hot summer night. When Daddy picked her up and kissed her, what was on the Eastern Horizon? In the dark, right out there --- Aquarius. She had Aquarius rising.
Just What is the Divine Doing?
What is the Divine Doing? Making you a more specific, more clearly specialized individual. It is the HOUR of your birth that determines where your Mars in Leo (as a supposed example) is to be placed ----- in the 12th house the 8th house or the 4th house.
What are the HOUSES? There are 12 houses. Imagine 12 aspects of life -- Home Health, Travel, Career, Hopes. I won't list all 12 here, but where your planets INFLUENCE you is the House it sits in.
Imagine a CIRCUS WHEEL. On a given day the planets are in their position in one of the 12 seats. when you are born, at that moment, the Circus Wheel STOPS.
There! Right then in that moment. TAKE A SELFIE IN YOUR MIND'S EYE! YOUR SPECIFIC IDENTITY FOR THIS LIFE TIME HAS BEEN EMBLAZONED IN THE HEAVENS. Your chart has been set!
Where is the Rising Sign at the Circus Wheel? As a baby, you don't know. A Doctor or a Parent has to tell you later in your life, OR IT IS DOCUMENTED.
The Rising Sign has to be determined. At the 1st House, you "mathematically" turn the Circus Wheel, and the placing of that Rising Sign determines WHAT HOUSE receives the energy, significance, (aspects) of that placement. Your "Mars in Cancer" or your "Jupiter in Scorpio" goes to the right house.
So, you see how your individuality AND your chart gets determined by your Rising Sign.
In doing interpretations for people I have always used this TWO LENSES approach. Think of the Sun and Rising as your INNER and OUTER persons, your PRIVATE and PUBLIC self.
In the "old days, before computers, the first thing an astrologer would ask was:
"What is the Day of your Birth dearie? And what was the Hour of your Birth? Find out from your Momma, to make this the best Horoscope it can be."
How do These Two Compare and Differ? Are there Warnings?
Being an Aries Sun Libra Rising Can Be Less Complicated Than the Aries Might Think.
Calling the Aries Ego ----your Libra Outer Self might try to make you seem too classy, too restrained. Being too sedate and self possessed. You could think your social side is leaning back and taking things too easily. But maybe, just maybe, that's the way you should want it.
Carrying on this theme, Libra tries to impress, and they can be good listeners, which you are not. Since Aries always brims with Self Confidence, this could make your "dual self" --- a quietly confident soul with the "quick draw" quality of the Ram.
But don't feel too sorry. After all, having a sense of class communicates CONTROL. People do get attracted to the "Noblesse Oblige" of a somewhat royal air. means that your strong inner self and your highly developed keen eye for others faults will hold you in good stead. Just be aware that if you honestly try not to offend others, it can do you some real good and it will build social credits for your admittedly excellent self.
LIBRA AND ARIES WORKING TOGETHER
Libra has a highly "uppity" approach and carries standards that can make it seem above it all. But Libra is charming and Aries needs that. If your Libra with a broader style and charming smile can soften the way in the social whirl, then you can attempt to make your approach a more like a newly crafted Smiling Aries ego.
All of this however, if you adopt a cooler mellower way, can allow you to cloak your criticisms, and allow Aries, also in a tamer way, to win the day, not by being overwhelming, but by betting well at the Kentucky Derby.
How do you Effectively Blend your Aries and Libra Selves?
Being an Aries Sun Libra Rising Is a Challenge for Your Outer Personality and a New Identity! Libra likes, even insists upon politeness. Of course, Aries is tougher than most.
So what does that mean? Simply that the Aries should surrender to their more innocent partner! This is a working partnership in our increasingly complicated world.
Aries Sun and Libra Rising
So, there you sit in the burst of Spring time! But look at the complications in Spring that enliven your vitality. Libra loves the colors of Autumn and no summer heat and no snow. Good mate for your Personality.
The RAM sits upon the end of winter. Having come to a screeching halt, the Vernal Equinox begins, the Ram, to say the least, is animated! However, cold snaps come and Spring snow can surprise. Animals are bursting into the traffic lanes of streams and fields and rocky ledges and melting ice. Then dry hot suns beckon plants and creatures up and out into the great expanses of nature.
Ancient Astrology says that the Libra personifies Lady Justice with the balances in her hand. That People see as equanimity, restraint and "holding back harsh judgment.
NATURE tends to bestow in abundance. But no one comes home at the end of the day and says "Man, I have too much."
"Lions and Tigers and Bears" can be what they are, but we are conscious human beings. We are over-equipped, but we have not come close to discovering our Divine Given Horsepower! It is through meditation, "thought experiments" (in which you rehearse issues in your mind. The goal is thoughtful integration of all of your virtues.
If an Aries can mellow out, just a bit, and allow his Outer Personality of Lovely Libra to cover conflicts with a less tense hand than he would usually have, maybe the TWO of you as ONE could be the Real Super Achiever you want to be!
From these two descriptions, you will see how you can be more like your CORE. And counterbalancing, harmonizing and retrofitting can begin in earnest with a long happy look to the future with your loved ones, friends and family.
