The Ascendant and its meaning in Astrology
Discover what it means to have a Libra ascendant and read all about your ascendant.
Venus, the goddess of love and beauty, governs your ascendant and endows you with a noble charm and finesse, which will make you loved and wanted by those around you.
With your sharp mind, you make sure you have the right knowledge and cultivation in order to ‘get’ all the sensitive aspects of people and situations. You also have an air of ‘self-promotion’ without, however, any bad intentions.
You support justice and honour and usually have a well-balanced sense of social values. You seek companionship, not just emotionally but socially as well. In this way, you develop a strong social conscience that works positively for other people. Teamwork and collective activities offer you the appreciation and admiration of others and this gives you particular satisfaction.
In your love life, you are very romantic and know perfectly well how to create a ‘magical’ atmosphere so your relationship can grow. You have a strong intuition and, when you meet someone, you usually know what chances you have with them. You are willing to make many compromises for your partner as you want to share with them not only day-to-day life but the big plans for the future that you like to have.
You adapt easily to a shared life as balance and harmony are essential for you to feel secure and take the strength to face any adversity. Your ability to weigh situations correctly and take the right decisions can help you have a successful career in law. You could also make your name as an art critic.
You enjoy taking care of your home and putting your personal aesthetic stamp on it. You have a talent for creating a natural harmony of colours and shapes to produce a feeling of serenity. You are endowed with a healthy sense of humour and know how to make others have a good time. As a result people enjoy your company and want you to like them. Nevertheless you often form superficial friendships that don’t last long.
You are very sensitive and can easily sense when something is lurking beneath the surface of a situation, something which helps you to keep your distance from people and things who lack harmony or you believe aren’t worth your attention. In any case, your main aspiration is to have harmony and balance to feed and revive your spirit.
