Why is the Ascendant sign considered to be so influential as opposed to the other houses? And what about the Midheaven? copperrose
Answer: It’s the personal appearance you give off to strangers and even friends you hardly know.
Air type attracts air type so lets say that someone is a Gemini Sun and they see someone who is Capricorn Sun but their Ascendant is a Libra. Gemini will more than likely be attracted to the Capricorn because the Gemini sees a Libra.
If the Gemini Sun has a Virgo Ascendant the Capricorn will see Gemini as a Virgo… until, they get to actually know the person. haha.
And Midheaven is how people see you on a PROFESSIONAL level rather than personal.
