Sagittarius Rising

Meaning of Rising Sign

Sagittarius rising means that Sagittarius was the zodiac sign that was on the eastern horizon at the time of your birth. As a Sagittarius rising, you're ruled by fire, and your ruling planet is Jupiter, the planet of abundance, luck and bounty.


Sagittarius rules the hips, thighs and legs. So, you better believe that a Sagittarius rising has got some enhanced, bodacious curves to them—and loving it!

But that's not the only part of a Sagittarius rising body that's robust and full. Because this sign is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of abundance, everything about Sagittarius is, simply, full. Jupiter makes everything bigger and better. So, Sagittarius rising placements tend to have luscious and thick hair, full lips and a gigantic smile.

Given this sign is lively and bright, Sagittarius risings typically have natural, glowing skin and features. They are truly radiant!

The best way to describe Sagittarius energy is full to the brim with optimism. Honestly, you just can't be sad when you're around this sign. This person is often the most “optimal” of every aspect. They are the life of the party: the most energetic, the most willing to try something new, the most likely to burn out very quickly.

While the staying power of Sagittarius is less prominent, this sign absolutely needs their freedom. So, a Sagittarius rising will express a million ideas to you, but they are not looking for your opinions, approval or advice. They just want to feed off of your excitement. In fact, if they disagree with you, they will tell you right away. This placement is exceedingly blunt.

And, well, truly they don't need advice. Want to know why? They are notoriously, inherently lucky, thanks to Jupiter, the planet of fortune. This is the kind of person who never makes a plan but always gets by. They tend to “wing it” most of the time. And that always—to the annoyance of their mothers—seems to work for them.

Being that Sagittarius is all about travel and exploration, you can expect a Sagittarius rising to be “elsewhere” at any given time. This placement loves to travel, and, even if they don't mean to do it, they find themselves in situations where they are required to move, explore or take part in long-term travel.

Finally, this sign is rooted in faith. A person with a Sagittarius rising might be indebted to their beliefs and church. They might find peace within their faith and believe in something greater than themselves.

The first impression a Sagittarius rising gives off to others is someone fun, intrigued, expansive and charming. Within just a few minutes of conversation, you could hear about five different experiences this sign has had. But that's just the start of it. You won't want to turn away because this placement is incredibly interesting.
