Libra rising, or Libra ascendant, refers to Libra being the zodiac sign that was rising on the Eastern horizon at the moment of one's birth. This can be determined using a birth chart if one knows the exact time and location of one's birth.
Rising signs determine one's outward persona and image revealed to others. An individual with Libra rising is typically socially active and either creates harmony or disrupts the peace. Libra rising individuals might get their hearts broken in love. They are articulate and have an easy rapport with others. Career paths for these individuals may include decorating, arts, fashion, law, entertainment media, social advocacy or politics.
