The ascendant is regarded as the 'mask' you wear when meeting others, the face you show to the world and also your 'coping mechanism' with which you face difficult situations, a sort of protecting shield if you like.

To calculate the ascendant you need the exact hour and minute of your birth. The reason why you're getting different results is probably due to the fact that your ascendant is somewhere at or near the border between Scorpio and Sagittarius, so some charts interpret it as the former, and others as the latter. These two signs are essentially different - Scorpio is passionate, intense and mysterious, while Sagittarius is enthusiastic, easygoing and straightforward - so if your ascendant is positioned right between them, it may be a little bit of both. However if you say that it's usually Scorpio, then most likely it is, although a certain influence from Sag is not out of the question


Well, I would say I am nothing like a scorpio lol

Listen guys bit of administration here. While I have nothing against personal conversations on the forum, and I love the fact that there's so many new people getting to know one another could we please try and keep threads on topic, and keep personal business like this to PMs or threads dedicated to this particular subject; otherwise threads tend to get derailed very easily and the title becomes meaningless. No criticism of you guys, just a general note really, it would be nice if people kept conversations between themselves to PMS where they're more appropriate.

Thanks,

Saturn.

Thanks Jupiter, I wouldn't usually say that, but as I mentioned earlier in the thread I was hoping to keep this a simple one which just offered Birthday wishes whenever a member's birthday came up, and it became more of a conversation between two or more people, which if you were an outsider reading, or a guest, you would think was perhaps a bit cliquey, and I don't want this forum to become self-serving and inward looking; I want new people to be able to just jump in and join in with debates.

I hope I did not offend you or Raphael, or anyone else; my editorial interference in the forum is meant to be on the whole imperceptible but sometimes I have to intervene on certain things.

I really dislike cliques- is why I always urge new members to read older posts and jump in- which good to see they have been doing. :D We have had some nice new folks join in the past few weeks.

No problem.

No worries, it is a good thing to have such an actively involved admin on this site.
