It describes our ‘persona’ or that which we present to others, particularly when we first meet them. It is also a liminal space – a border – between the outer and the inner world. In our relationships with others, it is very important to understand what our Ascendant is presenting. To do that we need to understand the power behind it, the Ascendant ruler. Here we shall explore this combination.
