agree  davidgreen: aka "rising sign" - it's something like the zodiac sign that influences you but is not "your sign" based on day/month born

ascentant - or - rising sign

"This description applies to the ascendants"
"This description applies to the rising signs".

The ascendant, or the rising sign, is the sign the sun was in at the date of birth when the sun rose. It is *not* the birth sign. One may be born a Scorpio but the rising sign\ascendant would be any of the other 12 signs.

a typo above - should be ascendant (of course)
