Not knowing the exact time and location of your birth are some of the details you'll miss out on. With a birth chart, you can create an accurate depiction of the sky over the time of your birth. It will also give you a better idea of what signs the planets and other celestial bodies were during that period.

The sign that appeared on the eastern horizon when you were born is your rising sign or ascendant. It's a sign that speaks to your inner image and can reveal potential career and life goals.

For instance, if you were born on December 17, you might have been told that you're a Sagittarius and truth-seeking, unfiltered, wanderlust-filled. But, in reality, your rising sign is Libra, and you are more likely to try and maintain peace.

Your ascendant can also affect your appearance. For instance, if you're a Scorpio, you might have a magnetic, mysterious aura and a commanding presence. On the other hand, if you're a Leo rising, you might have more lighthearted, happy, and naturally charismatic.

The significance of the ascendant is that it always lands in the first house of your personality, which is very important to your first impression of other people.

Most horoscopes are written with the person's rising sign in mind. Knowing this will help you get an accurate reading of your chart.
