Overview Of The First House:

The First House in Astrology is also known as the ‘Ascendent’ or the “Rising Sign”. Yes, there are three names for this Astrological House, and as with all long-named things, this particular area really is that important.

The reason for this according to astrologers is because the First House describes where we draw in our first breath, and in Astrology, this is a very symbolic and powerful moment. The moment when we are incarnated into our physical vehicle, into our body, this life, and all that it promises. Hence, having three names doesn’t seem all that dramatic, right?

This house is associated with how we look, what we wear, the color of our eyes, our height, our style, and how people perceive us. It’s that “first impression” that people get from us, and the zodiac sign and planets in this area tend to indicate how we behave and model ourselves to the world. So, without further ado, let’s explore this in more detail:

First House in Aries, Aries Rising, Aries Ascendant:

With your First House in Aries, you sure are a stick of pure dynamite! This is the first of the zodiac signs, as such you like to be first, too. You’re a winner, rising enthusiastically to any challenge, and people will perceive you as a brave, courageous warrior type. You love to take action, and never hesitate to stand up and assert yourself when it’s called for.

That said, you can also be confrontational, assertive, impatient and seemingly self-absorbed. You sometimes don’t think of the consequences of your hasty actions, so your task in life is to learn to temper yourself, just a little. But not too much, because you should never dim your brightly shining light - a light that inspires all who meet you.

First House in Taurus, Taurus Rising, Taurus Ascendant:

Nice, slow and steady is how you like it. People will see you as calm, solid, unruffled and patient. Your approach to life is methodical and careful, and you like to plan ahead, keeping an eye out for any unexpected danger. You don’t much like change, and you can be remarkably stubborn, but so too can you be loyal, consistent and wholeheartedly committed.

You love love, and can be a sensual creature. You enjoy the finer things in life but have to be careful of becoming indulgent, and all the consequences of indulgence. You’re very good at being lazy, but you’ll work hard when there’s money involved.

First House in Gemini,  Gemini Rising, Gemini Ascendant:

Curious, clever and witty, you can make a room burst out into laughter. You’re a versatile and adaptable little chameleon, and you fit in practically anywhere. Your approach to life is open-minded, and you love to learn everything there is to know about everything. People will perceive you as intelligent and changeable, always busy having fun. Speaking of busy, you’re never sitting still, and you need to be careful of piling too much onto your plate and never finishing everything. Take one thing at a time, lest you burn out!

People will either see your dark or light ‘twin’ – some say you’re a breeze to be around, others could say that you’re a nightmare. Most of the time, you’re easygoing, but be mindful of your habit of avoiding commitment.

First House in Cancer, Cancer Rising, Cancer Ascendant:

People will be drawn to your nurturing, sensitive and empathetic nature. Complete strangers will walk up to you and tell you their life’s story, just because of the caring vibe you put out. Family and home are central to your life, though you may find yourself moving around quite a few times before you settle down. You’re like a traveling crab, and your home is always on your back.

You go through a million phases in one day, being ruled by the Moon. This can make you seem moody and at times, even defensive, as you try and protect your soft side from the world. Pushed into a corner, you can be as grumpy as anything. You hate conflict and try and sidestep problems, but be careful that this doesn’t backfire on you.

First House in Leo, Leo Rising, Leo Ascendant:

You need to be on a stage! Performance comes naturally to you, whether it’s as a manager, leader or actor. People will see you as proud and confident, whether or not you really feel it inside. So, don’t be surprised when you get followers or have people looking to you for an answer. Like royalty, you give off a natural air of authority and power.

Sunny and warm, your approach to life is romantic, playful and expressive. You’re protective and deeply loyal, and you need to be appreciated for everything you do. If not, you can become dramatic, arrogant and controlling. If you're validated, your already huge heart bursts even wider and your generosity knows no bounds.

First House in Virgo, Virgo Rising, Virgo Ascendant:

With your first House in Virgo, you’re a meticulous organizer. Practical and grounded, people always approach you with advice on how to solve their problems, because you’re just such a natural at fixing evening. You’re an incredibly hard worker, and your greatest reward is feeling useful to others.

You can be a touch perfectionistic, even critical, as you try and solve every flaw you can find. You’ll need to learn to be less exacting and release control from time to time. Your planning is incredible, but it can result in a lack of spontaneity. Health, wellbeing and diet will be a big part of your life, as you tend to see the world through the lens of your sharp intellect.

First House in Libra, Libra Rising, Libra Ascendant:

You’re such a charmer, aren’t you? Having Libra as your First House can make you the most desired one of them all, and you tend to be naturally gorgeous and flirtatious – maybe without even noticing. Relationships are extremely important to you, and you’re a total romantic. You’ll bend over backward to please your honey, but be mindful that you’re not too compromising. You can be the typical people-pleaser, which makes you very much liked but may lead to resentments from time to time.

Constantly seeking balance, you hate things to go into disarray, and you’ll try and make sure that your life is always on track, giving equal energy to everything. You are a stickler for fairness and hate to see any injustices done. This is when your famous talent for debate emerges.

First House in Scorpio, Scorpio Rising, Scorpio Ascendant:

Magnetic, powerful and intense, you’re a mystery, a tantalizing enigma to be solved. No one really knows what’s going on underneath the surface for you, and you like to keep it that way. Not naturally trusting, you somehow manage to get people to tell you their deepest and darkest secrets. There’s nothing too taboo to talk or think about – you want to know everything there is to know about the world and beyond.

Your intensity can be seen as obsessive and you may have bouts of insecurity and jealousy from time to time- although you’ll never show it, being so tightly controlled. But underneath lies a deeply vulnerable and tender person who’s terrified of your loyalty being betrayed.

First House in Sagittarius, Sagittarius Rising, Sagittarius Ascendant:

You're the life of the party and an eternal ray of optimistic sunshine! Your attitude to life is positive and hopeful, and you always seem to manage to land on your feet, no matter what happens. This can make you a bit of a gambler and sometimes reckless, even irresponsible. An ascendent in Sagittarius means you throw caution to the wind, knowing that the universe will catch you.

You tend to love, love, love travel and seek to always expand your horizons in some way. Adventure is constantly beckoning, which can make you restless and eager for change. You’re also one of the most honest people around, and you say it like it is, even if it hurts. People always know where they stand with you, though you’ll have to learn, eventually, to have some sort of filter for the more sensitive ones in your life.

First House in Capricorn, Capricorn Rising, Capricorn Ascendant:

Serious and mature, you grew up before your time. You were practically born as an adult, as you love to shoulder responsibility, feeling like it’s natural for you. Because of this people will always look at you for advice and authority. So, although you may feel insecure about who you are, you’ll have to accept that you are, in fact, the wisest one in the room. Your life experience has taught you to be savvy and streetwise.

Structure and planning are usually important to you, and you enjoy being in control. Just watch that you don’t take it too far – you also need to remember to just have fun at times, too. Work hard, play hard, is often your motto.

First House in Aquarius, Aquarius Rising, Aquarius Ascendant:

Let’s just say it like it is – you are the zodiac’s weirdo. The strange one in the astrological room. The one who feels a bit like an alien, or at the very least, an outsider looking in.  And what’s more, you like it that way. You don’t want to be part of the crowd, yet you do want to be part of a community that shares your ideals for the future. Yes, you are a complete contradiction, and people may comment on this from time to time.

You’ll be seen as the rebel, except you do have a cause - a fair number of them, actually. You make the rules, and as such, you tend to be a little, well, eccentric in that way. However, you’ll always have a following because you’re also a natural teacher, and you share information just as freely as you soak it in.

First House in Pisces, Pisces Rising, Pisces Ascendant:

Dreamy, gentle and soft, your energy is seen as compassionate and empathetic. You have a spiritual approach to life, and you tend to drift along, just going with the flow. Trusting in divine timing is your forte, and you know that trying to hold on just creates anxiety.

You tend to be seen as somewhat of a mystic and people can be drawn to your wisdom and insight. You may become a leader in a spiritual community of some kind, or find yourself drawn to traveling to places that hold special energies for you. You seek growth in everything you do, but you may have to be mindful of lowering your boundaries too far and allowing negativity in. Being so sensitive, people may too easily take advantage of you.

    First of all she's amazing at what she does. She knows exactly what has happened in my life and she's helping me to get to my life, destiny and my purpose. The greatest advice and the way the planets line up and everything that's explained is very easy to read. I hope to get emails from her now. I'm going to watch her YouTube videos to learn more about what she has to say. She showed me that she knows exactly what she's talking about and how to get there without extra help. I would probably always been in this hole that I've been in for the past several years and she's giving me the opportunity to get out of it. I thank her very much and I hope to always have her on my side cuz I'm going to research you all my life.
