Sagittarius Rising - Ascendant
Keywords: Quick witted, Humorous, Theatrical, Oratorical, Active, Needs freedom
A Sagittarius Ascendant indicates individuals with a certain type of flexible personality that works well for them. Because of their need for independence and freedom, they are apt to constantly put themselves in changing circumstances and different environments. Such changes would, in turn, require a certain amount of adaptability. Many of these individuals put marriage off until later in life or skip it altogether unless they find understanding partners who do not attempt to be possessive or confine them. Once such an acceptable marriage arrangement is made however, they adapt and are stable, loyal spouses.
They are full of energetic enthusiasm. However, their enthusiasm is not necessarily always accompanied by unflagging physical energy. They may, in fact, tend to be lazy unless highly motivated to perform. It is often difficult to engage in boring routine exercise and in spite of their innate restlessness and propensity for rushing around in a myriad of activities, they are quite capable of being unwilling (or unable) to keep themselves trim and in good physical shape. Though often rash and hasty their passions are sincere and inspirational.
Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, planet of inspiration, wisdom, good fortune, and abundance. These individuals are apt to be spiritually or philosophically oriented, talkative, intellectually curious, and, at times, perhaps a bit too impressed with status and wealth. Their natural exuberance and generosity are responsible for unrestrained abundance. Like those with Gemini Ascendants, they are apt to demonstrate any one of a wide range of orientations and abilities, from being great teachers, writers, scholars or researchers all the way down to those who engage in the flimflam of con artists and the intellectual emptiness of merely copying the originality and talent of others.
They are apt to be very honest, though it is also true that their too-candid remarks can sometimes be misinterpreted as rudeness. The negative influences associated with Sagittarius Ascendant indicate the possibility of those afflicted with a tendency for self-indulgence which makes them pompous, grossly overweight, dependent on drugs or alcohol, or too opinionated and cynical. On the positive side, Sagittarius indicates love of drama and the theater, good food and drink, dancing, sports, animals, and, as a rule, they never miss an opportunity to travel. They are likely to be involved with publishing, education, religion, art, or music, either as a profession or hobby.
