The First House, Your rising sign and your representative

The 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?

The 1st House in Astrology

The first House is all about you! How you appear to the outside world, how others see you, the way you speak and the way in which you carry yourself. The 1st house corresponds with the 1st sign in the zodiac. Aries, a cardinal action oriented sign that tends to seek self fulfillment.

Everyone has a different sign on the 1st house cusp, for instance I m a Cancer Sun but my 1st house cusp otherwise known as my ascendant or rising sign is in Aquarius. People see me as friendly and sociable. Truth be told I’m not! A Cancer sun is clannish. However similar to Aquarian I lean toward being eccentric and possess a humanitarian side.

Planets in the 1st house will affect you as an individual

Sun in the 1st house makes you showy, optimistic and very assertive

Moon in the 1st house indicates you have psychic sensory, picking up on what isn’t being said, and also just as the moon fluctuates you will experience highs and lows in self esteem

Mercury in the 1st house has a very active mind, sometimes nervous energy and enjoys speaking of themselves and their interests

Venus in the 1st house makes you appear attractive to others, an easy going if not lazy approach to life due to your expectation that events will go your way which they usually do

Mars in the 1st house makes you very aggressive, not necessarily a bad thing, but not the most polite of placements. I use to date a man with Mars in the 1st house; he was the most direct person I have ever met. On our first date he buzzed about (Gemini) he was in constant motion. I was overwhelmed he thought I was bored stating, “If you are going to look miserable all night I’ll take you home”. He was always shooting from the hip, telling some woman at a club we frequented his shoes cost more than her entire outfit”. I cringed, but he had this quality that you couldn’t ignore and either you loved him or hated him for it. Mars in the 1st house doesn’t inspire indifference.

Jupiter in the 1st house gives good luck with your endeavors and the ability to self directs your life. Optimistic in thought

Saturn in the 1st house indicates you are restricted, extremely conservative, you probably drive with hands at 10 and 2 and voted for Bush.

Uranus in the 1st house you will experience MANY changes in terms of your identity, from dress to the manner in which you speak. You are probably unconventional and have a non conformist side

Neptune in the 1st house indicates that others do not see you clearly and sometimes call fall prey to ill intentions or see you through rose colored classes. Projecting all they wish to see at other times you may feel you are not completely understood and are easily wounded.

Pluto in the 1st house indicates major changes via you; this may be via your physical body or perhaps bringing yourself face to face with trying circumstances that bring about major transformation.
