Universally, everything is calculated to create the unique person that you are. The universe freezes for less than a second the instant you are born. This moment captures where in the galaxy the stars, planets, asteroids, etc. reside, which becomes a personal blueprint you at your disposal to help guide you for the rest of your life.
So in other words, it was crossed over/cusped with another sign. Think of it this way: when you see something like rising or ascending sign, it’s just which zodiac sign was coming up in your chart when you entered this planet. All you need to know is the exact date, time, and location of your birth. If you don’t have the exact time, then you can always use the standard 12 pm point in time.

The Significance of Your rising Sign
Your rising sign is associated with how others view you when they first meet or interact with you. It is the first impression they receive until they get to know you better. Many think that this is all the rising sign does, but don’t be mistaken.
To further explain let’s take a person whose birth date is June 11th and they have a rising sign in Capricorn. According to the zodiac, they are a Gemini, and according to the time and location they were born it was determined that the rising sign was in Capricorn.
It is safe to say that when you first meet this person you may notice that they can seem introverted and take things personally. But remember, these are just the initial impressions. This mask that the person consciously or unconsciously shows comes off with time, and you will see other traits that many times have nothing to do with Capricorn energy. This is not to say that the person is not being genuine from the beginning, but more cautious with themselves until they feel comfortable.
Alternatively, many use their rising sign to their advantage. Let’s go back to that Gemini with ascending Capricorn. Let’s say they start a new job. They can use Capricorn’s strong will and quiet nature in conjunction with Gemini’s witty mentality and social skills to set stability for long-term employment.
So you see, collectively everything is calculated specifically for you, and knowing this information will give you the tools you need in this lifetime. Create your own opportunities by knowing your rising (ascending) sign, and watch how it personally benefits your life.
