The First House Your Rising Sign and Your Represenative

he first house in astrology rules your appearance, hence the way you appear to others. This is not who you are in your core-that is the Sun’s job, how you emotionally respond is the moons job but your rising sign otherwise known as the 1st house or the Ascendant or Ascendening sign well now that is how the world sees you.
I have a Gemini friend she says when you go on dates now don’t send your representative Danielle. She doesn’t know anything about astrology, but yesterday I started thinking. WOW the ascendant sign is really our representative. For instance I have Aquarius rising, Aquarius is an airy ideas sign that rules the 11th house; a humanitarian, emotionally detached, clever, rebellious, innovative and progressive and while I certainly posses a lot of those characteristics I’m for legalization of gay marriage, I don’t do drugs but hell you can legalize them too, I often in very Aquarian fashion change my life in an instant, shoot I’m an astrologer Aquarius rules the 11th house of astrology. But at my core, in my soul I’m a Cancer sun; I’m possessive and clingy. I crave stability, a home base; on my days off I enjoy staying home. I feel I give myself to the world 5 other days of the week by the time the weekend rolls around I climb into my shell. I’m sensitive, I cry, I believe if woman have children they should stay home and men should go to work. I believe in the concept of marriage, but no one will ever know these things if they do not get past the mask I wear, if they do not care to go deeper past my rising sign beneath my representative and in that sense I feel like my rising sign betrays me.
The rising sign or the 1st house is what we project out into the universe, let’s be honest not everyone is worthy of getting to know our sun (especially when your sun is an easily wounded water sign). Though some people do have the same sign as there sun and rising sign which indicates how you appear and who you are match. How nice! Others see you for who you are.
When we go on a job interview, a first date or enter a party we go in with our representative. Planets in the 1st house along with the sign on the cusp of the 1st house indicate how we are seen and how we initiate tasks. So if you have the Sun in the 1st house you may want to be the center of attention of have a very direct personality, if you have the moon in the 1st house your self-esteem is likely to fluctuate; you will be overtly sensitive, Neptune in the 1st house can be unsure of who they are and others are likely to attribute traits onto you that you may not even possess in a state of projection, Mars makes you forceful, Saturn indicates you are reserved, Pluto is a Powerhouse and so on and so forth .
Who is your representative? What is your rising sign? What do you show they world? How does your 1st house betray you?
