Astrology has been around for thousands of years, revealing mysterious facts about ourselves. Some swear by it, others call it superstition. Regardless of how you view, there is something about its precise descriptions that makes it seem very interesting. I am not talking about just our Sun signs, which can be useful in understanding our basic personalities, but do not fully tell us about our lives.

In fact, there are many more things to astrology other than our horoscope signs. For instance, we all have a Moon sign, which, many astrologers argue, are more accurate than Sun signs in discerning our inner selves.

Similarly, our Rising signs can tell us how we appear to people, why they like us, and what we seem to be to the outside world. It is often described as the mask we wear when meeting others because it can reveal our instinctual responses to our environment.

For instance, a Leo rising would quickly try to make friends and gather admirers in an unfamiliar setting such as a party. Whereas, a Cancer rising would stick to his or her close friends and would need some time before warming up to others.
