If you have been brutally broken, but still have the courage to be gentle to others then you deserve a love deeper than the ocean itself.

Chart Ruler The ascending sign is our experience of individual awareness….just knowing that “I” exists… … it is a key in human interaction and social activity. without other people there to witness, the ascending-descending axis vanishes. the ascending sign can express most purely through our presentation. some people’s rising signs are so evident in their features. this is where you can get a real visual of the signs at play through the ascendant. the ascendant sign indicates the chart’s ruler through the sign’s ruling planet.
