Style Your Ascendant: Aries Rising

Filed in Zodiac Fashion

Jared Leto

How to dress when you are an Aries Rising?

It is an astrological fact that you ideally look like your ascendant. A.k.a. your rising sign. Unsure of your Rising Sign? Get an Astral DNA for my unique, non-cliche and supportive take on your whole natal birth chart.

So if you are – say – a stealth Scorpio with Leo Rising, it’s auspicious to LOOK Leo. Even if your Scorpionic psyche shrivels at the mere thought of big hair, bling and a 20-meter radius ostentatious entitlement scent from a designer/model/celebrity you personally feel a psychological affinity with.

So the first Style Your Ascendant subject is going to be Aries Rising. Note Jared Leto above. He is Capricorn with Aries Rising and has just recently abandoned his Hot Jesus look in favor of this more streamlined one.  When it comes to their look, Aries Rising does not invest too much sentiment into it. Aries Rising is always On Time.  If it is time for an image to go, it goes. In fact, fuq it. Consider it gone yesterday.

Heather Locklear 80s

Aries Rising also tends to look epic in sportswear. This is an action ascendant.  Eighties/Nineties Heather Locklear – Libra with Aries Rising is a prime example as is contemporary Rihanna, a Sun Sign Pisces.

Aries Ascendant is also brilliant in head-wear, hats – bandannas etc. In classic astrology, Aries rules the “head”  – not the brain – and Aries energy is nothing if not headstrong. But not fussy, floppy Gatsby style hats nor even anything bohemian and straw. Aries headwear says basically get out of my way or I will head butt you out of my way.

Lucy Lawless Salem

Lucy Lawless (Aries and Aries Rising) is staging a spectacular comeback with Jupiter trine Uranus but she here demonstrates that plaits do not work on Aries Rising women. It looks almost like an attempt to constrict some witch force.  Note the Aries Rising fantastic jaw and brows – easily the most obvious features on an Aries Ascendant face. Reese Witherspoon has the same defiant jaw jut.

That Aries Rising looks good in armor or armor inspired clothing is a given. These people are ruled by Mars. Mars is their most vital planet to synch with and resonate off.

And of course, the Aries power-color is RED….Here modeled by Dynasty-era Joan Collins, Gemini with Aries Rising.

Aries Rising means you don’t bother with languid, beige or preppy – you’re allowed to look thrusting and arriviste – your set and forget approach to life is combative, you ARE prepared for action, you DO want attention and you give zero fuqs whether anyone thinks you made an effort or not.

Thoughts?

Cancer Sun, Aries rising and I feel so validated right now.

Just come across this because I was rethinking my wardrobe, but honestly. I switch from feminine Libra flowing clothing to power suits and active wear on the reg. As I’m a tad overweight from all the sobbing last year into my icecream; I’ve been enjoying the long walks that I walk sprint into, leading my friends to the end of the path, and wearing red active wear tends to be a thing for me. My shoes are dotted with red too, but most of my leggings are either scorponic black, bright and cheerful libra or yes, sporty aries in red… Read more »

Oh man, you NAILED it. I’m a multi-Libra with Aries Rising, and I laughed out loud a few times reading this post. People sometimes ask me why I rarely wear skirts/dresses, and my go-to response (even before I was into astro) has always been, “But what if I need to throw down and suddenly wrestle somebody?” Basically, if I can’t do yoga/splits comfortably in a pair of pants, then I’m just not wearing them. Therefore, my clothes tend towards very loose and very stretchy. Being a Libra Sun/ Leo Moon, my dream is having a closet full of super-luxe activewear,… Read more »

Hey! Great post! I am an Aries asc, and I DO look epic in sportswear, thanks. 😉 Also, anything vaguely military inspired/structured. I have several coats and jackets that are military uniforms from past wars. I do love a good shirt-dress with pockets and epaulettes, too. If you look at Katee Sackhoff (Aries sun) she looked great in battlestar uniform. Now she looks great as a policewoman in Longmire.

What if your rising sign (Kataka) seems rather clashy with your sun sign (Cap)? My tastes do run more Cappy, clean basics, with unusual jewellry to keep things a little off-kilter. I’m not sure I could handle Victorian lace & ruffles, pastels… but perhaps that’s a stereotypical representation?

I do have a fondness for film noir femme fatale looks, and pinup vintange…

My Gemini rising Aries Sun ‘adopted daughter’ who calls me Aunti has had the roof fall in on her life…lost her job, they closed, just broke off with new boyfriend of 6 weeks, a Virgo, and now just calls me to say her male pittbull Boss has just raped her Sagg 14 month old bitch Honey Bear. $400 for termination. She’s making me feel old with all her Aries impetuosity. What’s that generation who’s turning 40 now? They seem to have some hard lessons to learn and all i can do is supply safety net.

I am Aries rising with Sun, Venus, Mercury and Neptune in Scorpio. I look like an Aries, not a Scorp. All my clothes are grey, black, white, or red so I can immediately go go go and not think about fashion. Utilitarian and athletic. Oh, and my eyebrows are the pretty bold for a blonde. True for me, Mystic!

I love that Jared Leto look, much better than the messy one. He looks a lot like Michael Fassbender (an Aries) in that picture.

Agreed. That jawline, so bad-ass. Cap/ Aries combo completely explains my attraction to him :/ (but “no more Aries men”. This is literally a mantra I repeat to myself – & that goes for Gemini too)

I’m Pisces rising, but my first house goes to 24* Aries (Chiron at 21*). YES to head gear, the fiercer the better. To armor jewelry. To healthy, bold eyebrows. To giving zero fuqs if anyone thinks I’m bluffing or don’t deserve it. Dressing & presenting yourself like, “Oh yeah? Why don’t you try me & find out?” 😛 Natal Mars in Scorpio/8th house, so there’s that too…

The poles.. if hot and cold are different extremes of the same thing, and the signs are set similar, can you do either your AC or your DC as image, for the same happy result?

Maybe not. Just thinking I am Gem Rising with Sagg DC, they are kind of a different ethos in terms of clothing?

Hm. I’m thinking how do you DO Libra Rising when you see beauty EVERYWHERE, as long as it’s outside a mirror. But I guess it just takes work. Things aren’t necessarily easily done…

Funny, I’ve always liked the style of the ladies above, tho only knew Lucy L is in Aries…always been a big fan of Joan too. She being a sun Gemini /Aries riser seemed to do the imperious, power -shouldered diva thing a bit more humourously than an Aries sun like Joan Crawford.

Am stellium Aries, but lib rising, so a softer look than above, but I love a well cut jacket, and I can wear a clear red, or preferably shots of bright pink/oranges.

Aries rising. I do occasionally wear red, it makes me feel powerful. I love colour in general and never wear black or white. Headbands = no, hats = rarely, sportswear = only when exercising or relaxing at home.

Love a red shoe though. Love glitter and sequins but try to restrain myself.

I am completely surrounded by Aries rising people! I adore them ((swooon)) My best friend is Aries rising but Pisces Sun/Moon/Merc has her more into the pastel shades. However she has never shyed away from a sporty but stylish shoe, and seems weirdly attracted to tennis outfits. The Aussie is quadruple Aries (Sun/Venus/Mars/Ascendent conjunct) with Mars rising. Yes to headwear, scars from headbutting and other daring-do, yes to strong brow, and looking unexpectedly hot in red. My old dude was triple Aries (Sun/Ascendent/Merc) and was super boho in his look- until he randomly came out in a pair of red… Read more »

What an awesome placement
I think it would absolutely apply to you if not more, in the raw sense your ascendant is your appearance
Mars hot on it trail will definitely effect

Can you relate to aries rising description?

I have mars rising in libra.

I have Scorpio rising and I don’t really like wearing black. I don’t relate to the sporty wear at all either but I DO like wearing red! I didn’t mention it up there but it’s a Mars-Uranus conjunction that I have rising…
Aguess that is where the subtilities come to play!

I have A Libra Sun and a Taurus Moon so I like to think I am more Venusian than Scorpionic. Plus my Venus is in leo so I like flashy and glamourous.

I would be pretty miserable if I dressed accoring to my Scorpio rising.

i always wonder about female scientists and such and whether they share astro signatures. which sign goes with lab coat? 😉

Aries Rising and all of this is true, I’m addicted to sportswear but always in dark colours, black or dark leopard print to stay true to my Scorpness. My eyebrows are always something people mention a lot they are very prominent, thick and dark, into hats too, although if they interfere with my sunglasses wearing (every day whatever the weather) they have to go, only thing I can’t do is red. Colour freaks me out unless it’s muted. Actually thinking about it my physical appearance is such a stereotypical hybrid of my rising and sun signs it’s kind of amusing.

Aqua Ramette
Aqua Ramette

My Aries rising really expresses itself strongly in red – red shoes are my particular weakness. I think I’ve got 10+ pairs.

As for eyebrows, I don’t think mine are terribly impressive – I’m more about the high forehead, which I believe is also pretty typical, complete with a few old scars obtained from head-butting things (nothing too dramatic though – the bottom of a pool on a shallow dive and the road when I once fell off my bike).

Charles

I think the headband is an old samurai thing, it’s called a hachimaki. It’s supposed to give you strength, but it also has practical purposes like keeping your helmet on during battle. So symbolically, it IS your helmet. Headbutt away. If you manage somehow to get your head bashed in, at least the hachimaki will keep it from falling apart.

Indeed Charles the hachimaki keeps your head together, i know, as i wore them often in the 70’s to keep from brain tightly intact from all the psychedelics ingested 🙂

Also, which sign does rule the brain? Aquarius? Gemini? got to be a rational sign whatever it is. =)

If
If

Which sign rules the brain; gotta be a rational sign? IMHO: (a) No one sign rules the brain although some planets might more more associated with some bits than others; and (b) There are relatively few parts of the brain that can be described as “rational”, unless you look at rationality in purely Darwinian – survival – terms. Either way it ain’t ruled by Gem/Aqua! The brain is made up of all sorts of different parts, like an orchestra. In (very) short,- these include various sensory bits (taste, smell, touch, visual), motor function bits, hormonal bits, animal (limbic) bits (where… Read more »
