Says a lot about you, your appearance, personality and the things that are important to you. This house is the face we show to the outside world. The sign which resides in this house has a final word on our identity. It is the house of personality and natural tendencies, energy level, and the new beginnings. The first house is ruled by enterprising, energetic Aries and it's planet Mars. Note: the planet which is rising on the horizon at the moment of birth determines your rising sign. If you know your exact birth time, you can find your first house. If you have an Astrologer made natal chart and you know for sure about your rising sign then you must read both rising sign and monthly, annual horoscopes. Your rising sign shows the features you got at the moment of birth, and those you are reflecting to society. Therefore, there are people who are in same sign but having very different properties. We actually are a mixture of sun sign and rising sign.
