House Cusps in signs

The 1st House in Astrology astrology2

The 1st house rules who you come across as. Compare this to the Sun, which shows who you are with those who know you best; the Sun is the inner you while the 1st house is the outer you. The sign on the cusp and any planets in this house will have major influence in your outer personality, looks, and presentation, and the general energy you exert. One interesting note about the 1st house is that we all tend to want to put our best foot forward, so we tend to play up mostly the positive aspects of the sign on the cusp and planets within the house. The 1st house is on an axis with the 7th house (the exact opposite house), and is also called the Ascendant or AC for short (because it’s derived by finding the sign ascending on the horizon at the exact moment of birth). The sign on the cusp is called the rising sign. This house is the house of the self, whereas the 7th house is the house of others. The 1st house is ruled by Aries, Mars, and is an angular house, all action, so a load-up of planets here could show you’re someone who likes to DO.
