The Ascendant and its meaning in Astrology
Discover what it means to have a Sagittarius ascendant and read all about your ascendant.
Jupiter rules your ascendant, endowing you with a pleasant personality, a very generous disposition and great vivacity. You are the pupil who always wanted to learn and to enrich your knowledge and you are an indefatigable idealist.
Looking at the surface of things does not satisfy you. You want to analyse and go deeper, to come to your own conclusions and produce new ideas, which can even be seen as Wisdom.
You are an idealist as regards life’s situations. Religion and philosophy attract you as the truths they contain go beyond the bounds of this trivial reality. You often see things from another dimension, far from the pettiness and smallness that tends to characterise human nature. You dream of a just and correct order of things.
You have open spiritual horizons and can easily adapt to situations, modifying your approach and ideas when you discover the new that overthrows the old. You are never static and are not fixated on things.
You are willing to make sacrifices to serve the common good or a great idea. You will isolate yourself from daily life, if this helps your internal evolution and development. You don’t, however, seek only recognition. With such rejuvenating ideas you also feel a strong sense of solidarity and desire to help others and may dedicate yourself to serving humanity for the common good.
For you, the meaning of justice and mercy are not just for philosophical debate and analysis: they are action and your life’s work, in an attempt to bring them to those who have been denied them.
You place great store on collaboration with others, communicating and freedom of movement, since any form of limitation and oppression can make you extremely angry.
At work, you thrive when working in a team as your friendly personality and sharp sense of humour mean you shine in social interactions.
With your independent and outgoing style, you often give the impression of being opportunistic, someone who does not have solid life values. You channel your energy through sports and travel, as you do not want to stagnate in a routine. Change is like oxygen for you. Your main characteristics are your optimism and effusiveness. When you handle them properly, you can put your vision into practice.
