Aquarius Ascendant: The Aquarius Rising Sign Characteristics

01 Sep 2018
The rulers of Aquarius ascendant are Saturn and Uranus. These two planets have an opposite yet complementary influence. Uranus makes you impulsive and individualistic, while Saturn makes you behave in a timid but well-controlled manner. Uranus pushes you to make radical yet eccentric changes, while Saturn invites you to proceed according to traditional and socially accepted values. Even though they exercise contradictory influences, these two planets ultimately strengthen your sense of independence and your tenacity. Uranus pushes you towards adventure and surprises, while Saturn brings you down to earth and the harsh reality of life.

Aquarius Rising Sign: The Ascendant in Aquarius and its meaning

The intuition that you have and which helps you to be the inspirer of ideas is from Uranus, while the discipline you need to fix your spasmodic behaviour comes from Saturn.

You like to regulate life, not just your own but the lives of others, your children’s lives, even your colleagues’. You are exceptionally good at organising your practical affairs and like to keep your ideas and activities up-to-date. You are completely focused on your goals and it doesn’t bother you how long they take, how tired you will get or how many adversities you encounter. You will remain in a relationship or leave it in search of a new intellectual challenge.  

You have a cheery personality and an open and friendly disposition towards others, which makes you much loved. You often win the title of most popular and reliable person as you have many talents and a clever mind. You don’t trust others easily and, in order to allow yourself to remain free in a relationship, you must first try it out and undergo many vicissitudes. 

You prefer to go out with many people and to make your choice over time, so as to be certain and ready to express your feelings. 
You try to focus all your attention on your family as you feel it is your support and your social achievement. Even so, you must learn to control your tendency to impose your opinions. To free yourself from outbursts and not to test the tolerance levels of your partner or friends, to maintain the balance and harmony in your relationships. 

It would be good to broaden your lifestyle and to learn to deepen your human relationships so as to keep them, otherwise there is a danger that you will become isolated from others and cut a lonely figure.

Aquarius ascendant personality traits

If your Ascendant is Aquarius, it is ruled by two planets that complement each other: Uranus and Saturn. Uranus is rebellious and progressive, whereas Saturn is strict and conservative. The former endows you with an open mind and an innovative spirit, while the latter makes you self-restrained and reserved. As an Aquarius rising sign, you vacillate between, on the one hand, the urge to experiment and seek change and, on the other, the tendency to preserve the established order of things by conforming to tradition. Despite representing antagonistic forces, though, both Uranus and Saturn make you forceful and strong-willed. You owe your resourcefulness and original way of thinking to Uranus, and your self-control to Saturn.

Aquarius Ascendant people constantly seek intellectual stimulation and like to stay abreast of the times. They never falter in their determination to achieve their goals. They are unwavering in the pursuit of their aspirations and never discouraged by obstacles or setbacks. They are also remarkably skillful when it comes to getting practical matters in order. They usually value nothing above their family. As an Aquarius rising sign, you are perceived as sharp-witted and dependable. You have a wide social circle, because your high-spirited, pleasant demeanor makes people enjoy and seek out your company. However, you often fail to rein in your urge to control other people’s lives and your desire to force them to come around to your way of thinking, thus testing their patience. Aquarius Ascendant people run the risk of ending up alone because maintaining solid, functional, long-lasting relationships can be a challenge for them. They need to learn how to keep their temper in check and to introduce greater variety into their life. When it comes to romance, they tend to be cautious and reluctant to let their guard down. They like to explore their options and to take their time before deciding to enter a committed relationship.

Aquarius Ascendant Man

Aquarius Ascendant men can be hard to understand and to keep up with because they tend to be original and very progressive in their thinking. They are unconventional, eccentric, captivating and very successful with the opposite sex. They place a high value on freedom and don’t appreciate being tied down. When they part with a romantic partner, they prefer to do so on friendly terms. They’re usually drawn to (older) women who like to be in charge, because the latter’s controlling behavior poses a challenge that intrigues them and keeps them mentally stimulated. When it comes to sex, they’re not the most intense of lovers, but they love to experiment and never pass up an opportunity to explore the female body.

Aquarius Ascendant Woman

Aquarius Ascendant women are humanistic in their outlook. They never cease to aspire to and to strive for both a better self and a better world. They constantly reinvent themselves. Their romantic life largely consists of a series of flings, as they tend to lose interest fast. They’re not particularly sentimental. When they are in a committed relationship, they often come off as emotionally detached. However, they are loyal to their significant other and willing to do everything in their power to make their relationship work. They need a partner who is practically minded enough to offset their own lack of concentration. When it comes to sex, they’re similar to Aquarius Ascendant men: they’re open to experimentation and impressively resourceful.
