Physically you appear to be quite energized - as if something was about to pop. This is particularly noticeable in your eyes, which have an intense, pointed quality - rather like a bird's. And they dart about rather than hold a fixed stare. However, all physical features can also be affected by other planetary positions, as any First House planets can. Many Arians (rising sign) have a typical long triangular shaped face. The eyes, as for most fire signs are deeply set with the brow close to the eyes. The hair is often coarse, wiry and dark. Men may have a thick head of hair when young but some do have a tendency for baldness in later years. As can be expected with the God of War, there can be quite a martial feel about those with Aries rising.
Your physical looks fall into one of two distinctive types. The more obvious one is the earthy, thick-necked, curly-haired kind who exudes a strongly physical aura - often attractive to the opposite sex. If you are the other type, you are more fine-featured, but maybe slightly fleshy in parts, full-lipped for instance. This type is also usually sexually attractive. Ruled by Venus, expect a fair share of Earthy Venusian types with this rising sign! Sweet but determined, particularly in the early degrees of this sign rising, have bow mouths, dimples and a very warm charm. The Venusian trait is small features, but the nose is not always straight, and the cheekbones prominent but away to the side of the face; rounded cheeks and chin - three neatly spaced mounds framing a typically sweet Venusian smile. Taurus rising also sports its fair share of stockily built types with much weight centered around the shoulder and chest area. The body may take a squarish form when this is the case.
Very mobile are these natives of Mercury - long limbs, wiry physique, fingers often tapering, and a light footed gait. When they speak, their whole body "speaks" or complements their words, somehow - watch how their hands move or the way they shrug and lift an eyebrow with consummate ease to emphasize a point. Gemini rising will talk about anything at all - even the most intimate details of who they are, but they do not naturally express their feelings. There are two basic types of Gemini rising face - one is longish, oval with convex (outwardly curved) with long nose and a long agile neck. The other is more bird-like with small eyes, a turned up nose and upper lip. The face appears to be 'double" and there may be a cleft in the chin or even at tip of the nose. Mercury ruled men have a tendency for moustaches rather than beards.
Cancer risings express much emotion through their eyes, which are often large and expressive. Their lips are rounded, full, and sensual with a slight downturn at the corners. Features are usually gentle and these natives can be described as being "Moon-faced". Hair is often wispy, with a wave and brown/blonde rather than dark. The men who go bald, here, do so from the middle of the head, rather than the receding hairlines you get with fire rising signs. The limbs are noticeably shorter with Cancer Ascendant types. Most of Cancer rising tend to a degree of fleshiness (some even 'big bear' types), but the later degrees of rising have many thin natives. One big giveaway for determining Cancer rising and that is the their "Oooohs" and "Ahhhss" and "Oo-oo-ooh!" when they discover something that really makes them happy!
Leo rising usually exudes an air of confidence - even in their bodily structure this is manifested. They tend to be full of energy and very hardy characters. They are upright and erect, and probably wouldn't stoop on principle! They often have a ruddy complexion and the men often wear beards. As can be expected - look for that mane of unruly hair and you have a Leo rising and those deep set fire sign eyes. On many, the hair grows low and thick on the neck, much as the lion's mane. Features may be catlike in formation and shape. A wide grin and sunny disposition are also typical characteristics in here. Everything about the face seems to be 'generous' in size and proportion. Shoulders are usually broad and there can be a higher than normal upper body strength. These natives tend to speak in a slow even manner - and do not like to be interrupted.
