So I was wondering what someone's impression of me would be, upon reading my chart without meeting or knowing me. So if anyone is interested please give me your first impression.
so the MC is my own perception of myself when meeting with(or around?)....strangers, so i was wondering, what do those people actually perceive me as? is it just my ascendant? or is their perception of me also mixed with their ascendant and my ascendant and my MC...?

Now basically your sun sign is your 'core beliefs, values, ego' and Asc is your physical body, mode of expression and mask and persona that we all wear and hide behind, but definitely not what's going on underneath. What's going on underneath is your Sun sign. Moon sign, house placements and aspects describe your emotional and intuitive responses, also describes your view of your mother, as saturn describes your father by sign and house position.
So, think of a glass milk bottle the bottle is your Asc and your sun the milk, but the milk still has to 'come out' through the glass neck of the milk bottle....
Now aspects within a natal chart represent 'facets' of our personality, because we are all multifaceted beings. What these do is 'break down and compartmentalise' these facets into smaller bite size chunks. This does take quite a lot of self analysis and objectivity to 'see yourself' and why you do certain things and behave in certain ways. Actually it can be quite good therapy...
Remember back to your school days an opposition is 180', square 90', trine 120', and sextile 60' Now challenged aspects are conj (depending on the planets, cos some like each other and some really don't) squares and oppositions. Easy aspects are conj (if the planets get along) eg: Jupiter conj Moon, sextile and trine. Quincunx is inbetween (depending on the planets) causes health strains and unresolved or hard to balance planets/energies.

Now your Asc is Scorpio with Pluto in first house. Now scorpio is a very private sign, doesn't want people knowing it's business and pluto there suggests there is much more going on below the surface than you are showing.
Three most important things in natal chart are sun, moon and Asc. Your Asc ruler in 1st suggests putting yourself first like a typical aries would do.
MC is our professional image and how we want to be perceived in society, career/workwise, what we are/become known for which is different from Asc or sun sign
I have Saggi MC and can behave like extrovert sagg, teach, have interests in 9th house matters, religion, law, philosophy, always enjoy learning new things. But that's not the real me either, the real me is the 'sun sign' think of a glass milk bottle, the milk still has to 'come out' through the glass neck. The bottle being the Asc sign and most visible to other.
Plus the Asc sign is the chemistry, lust and attraction factor when boy meets girl, it's what gets a relationship going. BUT have you never heard (even from your school days) that after a few weeks or months, that mask and persona has to drop and you have to get to know the person underneath and that's totally different to the image we 'project' outwards.
