Divination Using the ASC or Ascendant
The Asc. or ascendant in the horoscope is the point of the zodiac on the eastern horizon. It is also referred to as your rising sign. It is a point of personal identity and the sign there shows the attitude or style of your self image or persona. This is the point where you are most conscious of yourself coming from within your personal world and rising out into prominence in the eyes of others.
Divination Using the ASC: It represents how we project our image and motivation out into the world and on others. This point is determined from the exact time of birth at a specific place. This is a vital personal point of significance in a horoscope and one that is fertile for an association with the understanding of the I Ching.
