There are 12 Laganas (Ascendants) in the Astrology.


People with Aries rising tend to be energetic, pioneering, rash,
argumentative, selfish, impulsive, quick-tempered, aggressive,
assertive, headstrong, independent, alert, mechanically-inclined,
physically active, self-promoting, self-centered in an unthinking way,
and more thoughtless than mean. You have a general dislike for
restraint of any kind, don't like to be told what to do, need to learn
diplomacy and tact, need to look before leaping, need to better learn
how to channel your energies for more constructive purposes and
results. Like the ram who symbolizes this sign, you tend to butt your
head against your problems hoping that with enough force you can
eventually knock down whatever stands before you, including people.
You like the challenges of life and are very competitive and sometimes
combative. You get bored easily with routine and one thing you may
need to practice more of is persistence. You tend to jump from one
thing to another, always looking for something new. Finish what you
start before moving on. Spiritual lesson to learn: Patience. Mars
rules Aries so Mars will be important in your chart.


People with Taurus rising tend to be strong, persistent, slow to
change, determined, stable, quiet (until pushed too far - then there
will be trouble), practical, stubborn, non-aggressive, patient,
affectionate, loyal, hard-working, passive and unassuming in general,
and fixed in their convictions with a general slow pace of mind.
Taureans can be led or coaxed, but never pushed or driven. Resources
and possessions, whether people or finances are very important to you.
You want to build and make things grow, but you can't be hurried. You
want to get your hands on things and see the practical results of your
own hard work. You are good at taking what others have started then
carrying on. Success comes to you by sheer persistence and will.
Your love of sweet or rich food can incline you to put on weight. Try
to be less rigid in all you do. Tame any jealousy and instinct to
possessiveness. You hate and fear sickness and pain. Spiritual
lesson to learn: Detachment. Venus rules Taurus so Venus will be
important in your chart.


People with Gemini rising tend to be friendly, communicative,
flexible, indecisive, unsure, liking to do two or more things at once,
witty, clever, very active mentally, high-strung, temperamental,
nervous or anxious, talkative, superficial, and always ready for
something different. There may be two distinct sides to you as Gemini
represents the Twins. You have a strong need to communicate what you
already know and to learn more. You enjoy reading and traveling as
they both give plenty of scope for picking up new knowledge. You need
variety and can be the jack of all trades and the master of none. You
tend to go wide - for breadth, not depth. You may appear confident,
but you can lack self-confidence and inner sureness. You love to
talk, both with your mouth as well as your hands. Spiritual lesson to
learn: Control (learn to control and not scatter energies and to
prioritize). Mercury rules Gemini so Mercury will be important in
your chart.


People with Cancer rising tend to be less vital than average,
sympathetic, compassionate, passive, nurturing, receptive, protective,
retentive, changeable, psychic, sentimental, tenacious, timid, quiet,
sensitive, acquisitive (pack-rat), and moody. Just like the crab
Cancer represents, you may have the habit of looking ahead and behind
you at the same time, not fully wanting to face the future head-on and
always worrying about the past and what might be sneaking up on you
from behind, causing you great worry. You go through life in a
curious sideways motion, never going simply directly forward. You are
sensitive and you retreat into your shell when you feel threatened.
Your feelings can be easily hurt, even when no slight was meant and
you can take things much too personally. You enjoy travel, but you
absolutely need to know that you have a home base waiting for you to
come back to. Security is everything for you in life. Physical
security comes with a comfortable base of operations and emotional
security comes from all your possessions and attachments that have
sentimental value to you. In fact, that's why you keep everything -
because of all the emotional value and significance. Once you have
latched onto something or someone, you do not tend to let go easily.
You respond to life through feeling, not thinking. Your moods go up
and down just like the tides. Spiritual lesson to learn: Discernment
(distinguish boundaries). The Moon rules Cancer so the Moon will be
important in your chart.


People with Leo rising tend to be generous, proud, emotional,
romantic, extroverted, vain, egotistical, courageous, sentimental,
self-confident, showy, and want to shine and be successful in wherever
they go and whatever they do. They like to "rule" and have homage paid
to them for their "royal" nature. You like to take risks and can
sometimes be foolhardy, but you definitely have a zest for living.
The worst thing someone can do to you is to hurt your pride or be
unappreciative of you. You wear your heart on your sleeve in matters
of love and you need a partner you can be proud of - and you want them
to be proud of you. You are faithful to and protective of those you
love. You can be quick-tempered, but you tend to not stay angry for
long. You like to play the kingly role and have a sense of drama
surrounding you. You are a ham. You like being the center of
attention and will do things just to get that attention. You can be
stubborn in a sunny sort of way. Your roar is worse than your bite.
If your pride is hurt or your dignity is trampled on, then watch out,
because you can forgive, but you don't forget. You enjoy sports and
out-of-doors activity. Your vitality and spirit are strong except if
your heart is broken in love. Your need for love and affection is
very great and you need to feel appreciated. If frustrated, you lose
your desire for living. Spiritual lesson to learn: Humility. The Sun
rules Leo so the Sun will be important in your chart.


People with Virgo rising tend to be practical, analytical,
discriminating, fastidious, careful, exacting, attentive to details,
methodical, quiet, unassuming, shy, critical, thoughtful, and somewhat
self-centered. You have an ingenious, active and alert mind. Gaining
knowledge and putting it to good use are important to you. You strive
for perfection and can be quite the person to live with or to be
around because your standards for yourself and others are so high. At
times others can never be "good" enough to meet those high standards.
Finding fault with what's wrong with things is your forte. Sometimes,
though, this can make relationships sour as you often turn your
critical eye on the one you love and the things they do. Pessimism
and being too self-critical are two faults you should try to improve
upon. You may tend to worry too much, especially about the small
stuff, the little details. Too much worry can lead to health
problems. You need to learn to digest every experience and assimilate
it without bitterness, regret, spite or resentment. You need to get
rid of any negativity that stems from a feeling of inadequacy. You
tend to look younger than you really are, no matter what your age.
You are very restless and nervous, so you seldom have much weight on
you. At times you can be very indecisive and unsure. Spiritual
lesson to learn: Service. Mercury rules Virgo so Mercury will be
important in your chart.
