This post contains the intention of pointing out basic physical traits according to ascendant/rising sign. Planets conjunct the ascendant can modify the overall physical body feature and appearance.
With Aries rising with physical body becomes ruled by planet Mars. Distinctive facial feature are often present that really stand. The face itself can be of a triangular shape; often long and thick while possessing high cheek bones. The forehead is often of a broad stature with hair that is rough or wiry. The hair line, especially in men, is prone to a receding nature at the temple and prone to early hair loss.
Prominent eye brows are usually present, sometimes being bushy. The neck line is often thick and muscular; especially if it’s worked on. Often the face, temple or forehead region have scars or marks on them that are distinguishable.
The physical body itself often contains a strong up rite bone structure to support a muscular and athletic body tone. Despite a more muscular build the body height can be a bit shorter towards average in most cases. The skin can be golden or have a bronze type tint to it. The walking is confident with an upright posture about it. There is much purpose in the steps often ripe with determination. A healthy looking complexion is a strong way to sum up the overall physical physique.

The Zodiac Meets Chinese Face Reading: Speculation
Chinese face reading is an ancient oriental art form based on physical features, used to reveal one’s character, health, and ethnic origin. It is also known as physiognomy.
As far as I’ve read up to this point, I know that the forehead represents intelligence and wisdom, the cheeks represent emotion, and the chin & jaw represent aggression and assertiveness. The eyes are supposedly associated with leadership qualities & expression of feelings, the nose is associated with wealth, the ears with luck, and the mouth with elegance & charm.
I imagine that the Ascendant, the Ascendant’s ruling planet, planets in the first house, and planets in aspect to the Ascendant go hand-in-hand with subjects like Chinese face reading, so here are a few of the connections I’ve made.
(Planets in the tenth house and the Venus sign may also play a lesser part.)
Fire signs commonly have prominent chins/jaws & eyes. Earth signs commonly have prominent foreheads & noses. Air signs commonly have prominent foreheads & ears. Water signs commonly have prominent cheeks & mouths. Cardinal signs commonly have prominent chins/jaws. Fixed signs commonly have more “balanced” features. Mutable signs commonly have prominent foreheads.
Masculine signs commonly have more prominent chins/jaws than Feminine, though Fire signs have more prominent cheeks than Air, and Air have more prominent foreheads than Fire. Likewise, Earth signs have more prominent foreheads than Water, and Water have more prominent cheeks than Earth.
Individuals with notable Aries/Mars influence tend to have very pronounced jaws, protruding or square chins, and sharp eyes (both in shape & expression). Individuals with notable Taurus/Venus influence tend to have large & plump lips, round eyes, pronounced cheeks, and square but averagely defined jaws. Individuals with notable Gemini/Mercury influence tend to have thinner lips, large & defined foreheads, small but prominent ears, and large eyes. Individuals with notable Cancer/Moon influence tend to have round faces, large eyes, plump lips, very prominent cheeks, and smaller foreheads. Individuals with notable Leo/Sun influence tend to have prominent jaws, large or otherwise remarkably pronounced eyes, and well-formed lips. Individuals with notable Virgo/Mercury influence tend to have smaller eyes, thinner lips, very well-defined & prominent foreheads, and either very small & round or very large, defined, pronounced noses with thinner bridges. Individuals with notable Libra/Venus influence tend to have well-defined foreheads, prominent & graceful lips, nice cheekbones (although the cheeks themselves are rarely very pronounced), larger ears, and thinner noses. Individuals with notable Scorpio/Mars/Pluto influence tend to have very prominent chins/jaws/cheeks, and smaller but very sharp eyes. Individuals with notable Sagittarius/Jupiter influence tend to have square jaws, larger foreheads, large & round eyes, possibly crooked noses, prominent ears with large earlobes, and less prominent cheeks but high cheekbones. Individuals with notable Capricorn/Saturn influence tend to have remarkably large/defined/straight/high noses, square jaws, small but sharp eyes, possibly prominent ears, thin lips, possibly high cheekbones and/or prominent cheeks. Individuals with notable Aquarius/Saturn/Uranus influence tend to have smaller eyes, large & prominent foreheads, higher noses, and thinner lips.
