    The "Ascendant" is that degree of ecliptic longitude rising on the Eastern
    horizon, as seen for the time and place at which the astrological chart is
    set. In astrology (as previously noted) ecliptic longitude is expressed as
    so many degrees of a zodiacal sign, of which there are twelve equally
    spaced around the ecliptic.
    Regardless of which system of "houses" that is being used, (and there are
    many), the cusp of the first house is always on the ascendant. That is
    pretty much the only thing on which all the various house systems agree!
