Leo Rising

Why Am I Doing My Ascendant Not My Sun Sign?

Hey Mystic I have this astro question which has been bugging me for a while now and i’ve just gotta ask you because…….it’s REALLY BUGGING me. I have heard somewhere around the astro traps that when you are younger you tend to project your ascendent, but as you get older you kinda do the switch and project your sun sign.

Surreal, Virgo & Neptunian

The artist and surrealist Leonor Fini was a classic Venus conjunct Neptune woman. She loved glamor, art, culture, and cats.

Astro Lena Dunham

Jupiter over her Sun-Mercury in Taurus last year was good to Lena Dunham – i’m sure she’s Leo Rising (she’s cat-like, creative and brazen enough) and that would make it Sun/Mercury in the 10th House being oomphed by Jupiter – a total fit.
