Difference between two rising signs
First of all my question is, how easy is it to tell two ascendants that are next to each other apart?

Sometimes I have a problem, either this person is Virgo or Libra ascendant…
Or Scorpio and Sagittarius.

Btw does someone know what are the differences between a Cancer and Gemini rising? How can you tell?

That´s true, I always related to my numerology life path 7. Life path 7 is about solving life´s mysteries and they can be a loner.

I know a lot about numerology, I´m interested in it too. Life path 7s need their freedom, and alone time yes)

You´re welcome.

Yea you´re not Cancer , However , Cancerian issues matter to u based on your 4th house placements. Family,House,Childhood, Memories , Security and establishing home .

Without even reading your chart i can guess that you´re a lonely person who needs time alone every day, Switching between alone time and sociability is your hallmark.

You seekanswers to life´s mysteries and you seek higher wisdom.

You tend to isolate yourself from crowds and end up alone unintentioally at times.

It´s because you have number 7 life path , and 25 number birthday wich according to numerology is another 7(2+5) ,Number 7 is prominent in your numerology chart .

I suggest you read about 7 life path number on google in order to understand your path fully, There are a lot of descriptions about it on the internet , Just google it. You will be amazed how accurate and interesting it is.

Thank you for the reply, I know what you mean! I have Mercury dominant planet in my chart, some people may think differently. I never felt like a Cancer ascendant personality-wise, I think Virgo definitely does show in my appearance. :15:

Hello , Allow me to share my thoughts on this, i´v just seen your chart, And you definitely look like a Virgo/Gemini mix, Your mercury and Venus in Leo also adds to your face´s wideness, Leo and Cancer girls tend to have wide faces, Sun and Venus in 4th house, Belive it or not the house does affect the shape a bit especially the Sun´s house.

That hair line in the middle of your head is the biggest indicator of a Virgo ,Most Virgo´s hair are like that. Your nose is very Gemini-Virgo like, The only thing that resembles Cancer is the wide face .

You´re probably chatty and like mental activites because Mercury in your case is powerful,Mercury also conjuncts IC which is 4th house start, Further Empowering your 4th house effect, Including the look of a Cancer.

Napoleon Bonaparte might be a stereotypical Scorpio Rising?


George F. E. Rudé stresses his "rare combination of will, intellect and physical vigour".[260] In one-on-one situations he typically had a hypnotic effect on people, seemingly bending the strongest leaders to his will.

"When met in person, many of his contemporaries were surprised by his apparently unremarkable physical appearance in contrast to his significant deeds and reputation, especially in his youth, when he was consistently described as small and thin. Joseph Farington, who observed Napoleon personally in 1802, commented that "Samuel Rogers stood a little way from me and ... seemed to be disappointed in the look of [Napoleon´s] countenance [face] and said it was that of a little Italian." Farington said Napoleon´s eyes were "lighter, and more of a grey, than I should have expected from his complexion", that "His person is below middle size", and that "his general aspect was milder than I had before thought it."[276]

A personal friend of Napoleon´s said that when he first met him in Brienne-le-Château as a young man, Napoleon was only notable "for the dark color of his complexion, for his piercing and scrutinising glance, and for the style of his conversation"; he also said that Napoleon was personally a serious and somber man: "his conversation bore the appearance of ill-humor, and he was certainly not very amiable."[277] Johann Ludwig Wurstemberger, who accompanied Napoleon from Camp Fornio in 1797 and on the Swiss campaign of 1798, noted that "Bonaparte was rather slight and emaciated-looking; his face, too, was very thin, with a dark complexion ... his black, unpowdered hair hung down evenly over both shoulders", but that, despite his slight and unkempt appearance, "His looks and expression were earnest and powerful."[278]

Denis Davydov met him personally and considered him remarkably average in appearance: "His face was slightly swarthy, with regular features. His nose was not very large, but straight, with a slight, hardly noticeable bend. The hair on his head was dark reddish-blond; his eyebrows and eyelashes were much darker than the colour of his hair, and his blue eyes, set off by the almost black lashes, gave him a most pleasing expression ... The man I saw was of short stature, just over five feet tall, rather heavy although he was only 37 years old."[279]

During the Napoleonic Wars he was taken seriously by the British press as a dangerous tyrant, poised to invade. Napoleon was mocked in British newspapers as a short tempered small man and he was nicknamed "Little Boney in a strong fit".[280] A nursery rhyme warned children that Bonaparte ravenously ate naughty people; the "bogeyman".[281] At 1.57 metres (5 ft 2 in), he was the height of an average French male but short for an aristocrat or officer (part of why he was assigned to the artillery, since at the time the infantry and cavalry required more commanding figures).[282] It is possible he was taller at 1.70 m (5 ft 7 in) due to the difference in the French measurement of inches.[283]

Some historians believe the reason for the mistake about his size at death came from the use of an obsolete old French yardstick (a French foot equals 33 cm, while an English foot equals 30.47 cm).[282] Napoleon was a champion of the metric system and had no use for the old yardsticks. It is more likely that he was 1.57 m (5 ft 2 in), the height he was measured at on St. Helena (a British island), since he would have most likely been measured with an English yardstick rather than a yardstick of the Old French Regime.[282] Napoleon surrounded himself with tall bodyguards and was affectionately nicknamed le petit caporal (the little corporal), reflecting his reported camaraderie with his soldiers rather than his height.

When he became First Consul and later Emperor, Napoleon eschewed his general´s uniform and habitually wore the green colonel uniform (non-Hussar) of a colonel of the Chasseur à Cheval of the Imperial Guard, the regiment that served as his personal escort many times, with a large bicorne. He also habitually wore (usually on Sundays) the blue uniform of a colonel of the Imperial Guard Foot Grenadiers (blue with white facings and red cuffs). He also wore his Légion d´honneur star, medal and ribbon, and the Order of the Iron Crown decorations, white French-style culottes and white stockings. This was in contrast to the complex uniforms with many decorations of his marshals and those around him.

In his later years he gained quite a bit of weight and had a complexion considered pale or sallow, something contemporaries took note of. Novelist Paul de Kock, who saw him in 1811 on the balcony of the Tuileries, called Napoleon "yellow, obese, and bloated".[284] A British captain who met him in 1815 stated "I felt very much disappointed, as I believe everyone else did, in his appearance ... He is fat, rather what we call pot-bellied, and although his leg is well shaped, it is rather clumsy ... He is very sallow, with light grey eyes, and rather thin, greasy-looking brown hair, and altogether a very nasty, priestlike-looking fellow."[285] "

I know at least two persons with Scorpio Rising who are "bulky","stocky", "sturdy" ( sometime euphemism for "fat",but that s my point...it s a different kind of "fat")

Yes! I know 2 girls with Scorpio and Virgo in their big 3 and there’s just a certain sharpness and intensity to them you can’t miss!

Definitely, they affect it big time. Ketu on my asc and Rahu aspecting my asc with moon.. It´s a crazy ride!

I can send you some good info on it.. I have so many sites and articles saved through out the years...I gotta dig

Lol funny you say this, I was thinking the same thing recently. I know the gaze you are referring to and I saw someone´s profile and just knew they had to be either virgo or Scorpio rising.... So I clicked the page and they were both Scorpio and Virgo in their big 3. Virgo rising though. Now THAT was an intense stare.

" have Moon and Rahu aspecting my ascendant. I think that plays a role big time."

Interesting. I never contemplated the nodes or Rahu and Ketu affecting the asc... I´ll have to go a info searching.

Definitely the planets aspecting also. That helped me so much in understanding in the beginnging. My Aqua Asc Squared Pluto, sextile Saturn and trine BML and Chiron. I feel they give me quite a serious look

True! I can relate a lot to my Sag ASC regarding my way of introducing myself to the world :75: :75: but not that much regarding my physical appearance.

Trying to be as objective as possible, I feel like my look is a sort of mix of my Sag ASC, Virgo Sun, Pluto conjunct ASC and ASC ruler in Taurus ... maybe a bit of Aquarius too but it appears more in my way of dressing!! I like original clothes (slightly, not excentric lol)and transforming my fashion style through years!!

It´s often difficult to be objective regarding your appearance!! It´s usually more objective through other people´s eyes.

I always miss the interesting threads. This answer is to no one in particular but I would say each rising sign ACTS different.

Sagittarius would be more outgoing then Scorpio. All water signs are very moody. All fire signs are more fighters in their actions. Their actions would be more direct. Water signs are sneaky. They will avoid direct confrontations.
Air signs seem kind of symmetrical, I don´t know of them or I haven´t met them personally. I would expect them to be talkers and diplomats.
Virgo rising would work with their hands, want to fix or build things. Would be meticulous in cleaning up, having things in their place. I bet most of it would apply to earth signs but I don´t have direct experience other than Taurus rising. You´ll notice ascendant moon aspects for sure.

Same goes for Sun ascendant aspects.

I have a hard time differentiating Scorpio risings from Virgo risings. Scorpio has piercing eyes and thick eyebrows and “the look” and Virgo has that calculating analytical stare that I sometimes confuse with Scorpio’s intense glare. They both have sharp features. All the Virgo risings I know have arched eyebrows too. The libra risings I know have very even features. I’m a cancer rising, I’ve noticed that female cancer risings either have big breasts or none at all and both male and females either have very round or defined stomachs. Yes our faces are round but can also be very defined. Our eyes are soft, maybe even doe like? Someone I know described us looking like moon goddesses which I thought was cute. When meeting new people you never know what you’ll get because our mood is always changing just like the moon.They can be really friendly and outgoing, silent and closed off, or even shy and timid. I never know what version of myself I’m going to show to others’ and it’s pretty much impossible for me to control. I think there are big differences in Gemini risings and Cancer Risings behaviour. Gemini talks with their hands a lot, super excited and passionate about what they have to say. Witty, clever and quick on their feet.

"The ascendant sign itself does not dictate your appearance. You should look at any planetary aspects to your ascendant"

Yes yes and yes. People often miss this. Too busy looking at everything from only one angle. Aspects good or bad make a difference.

I have Moon and Rahu aspecting my ascendant. I think that plays a role big time.

The ascendant sign it´s self does not dictate your appearance. You should look at any planetary aspects to your ascendants because it has an impact.

It´s definitely not an exact science...

I probably have a 50% success rate...which technically, is an "F" :61:

Once in a while, you run into someone who is really (physically) a classic archetype for their ascendant, but it´s pretty rare

Much more accurate astrological speculation can be achieved by knowing the person.

It´s usually quite hard to guess someone s ascendant just by looking at him. Just from my experience.
