YOU KNOW IT'S YOUR RISING SIGN IF:
Rising signs are so important! In fact, you do better reading for them than for your sunsign. The rising is the zodiacal sign rising on the Eastern horizon at the moment of birth. It changes every few hours all day so you need a stargazer and exact birth hour to calculate them. If you don't have a true birth hour, write the HALL OF RECORDS, city of birth, tell them 'mother's name, dad's name, DOB' and send 7$ (check comes back uncashed if they can't give you this info) and a SASE. Ask only for the hour, say you don't need birth certif, you have one, just the HOUR minute and if am or pm., please.'
They DO have it. This info is not on the certificate, but it's in the registrar's BOOK along with doctor's name, mother's religion, TYPE of birth, how many inches long you were... stuff like that. They have these HUGE, antique books at the Hall of Records where parents filled in this info while it was still fresh in their memories.
I feel that risings are so pervasively important that you can GUESS what yours is just analyzing how you are, look, act. But you have to inspect them all to decide which fits you to a T. So while you're waiting for your home town to answer, play this game.
