    The Rising Sign is the degree of a particular sign rising at the instant
    of birth - each sign is further divided into decanates, each having a
    different tone or meaning within the particular sign, so the actual
    degree of the sign rising becomes of importance to the true astrologer,
    as does the method being employed, i.e., whether ecliptic based or
    constellation based.
    There are a number of house systems in use - in some the Rising Sign will
    be the cusp of the First House, in others it will be incorporated within
    the confines of a particular house. None of this is particularly
    simplistic and is not describable within the confines of a few sentences.
