Ascendant in aspects to house cusps

Is there any significance of having your ascendant squaring the 5th house cusp? My ascendant is at 24 degrees Taurus and my 5th house at 24 degrees Leo exact. Would that have an impact on the facial/body structure?

I don't think so.

Keep in mind that the degrees of your house cusps will vary depending upon the house system you use.

You might try running through your chart using the various house systems available on the free charts pages of Astrodienst, and see what happens.

With Taurus rising, look and see the situation of its ruling planet Venus. Also any first house planets or planets aspecting your ascendant, if any.

For what it's worth your ascendant is in the Aquarius dwad (duad) of Taurus, your appearance and outer personality may have an Aquarian sub-tone.

Points in space do not CAST aspects; they CAN RECEIVE influences (aspects)but cannot SEND them; objects (planets, stars, asteroids, comets, dwarf planets) can send influences (“rays”); points in space can HAVE THEIR OWN influences (Which can color parts of a given chart and can be of great importance) but can TRANSMIT these influences to objects ONLY when being conjunct or parallel an object; fundamentally-POINTS IN SPACE ARE PASSIVE RECEPTORS-OBJECTS are ACTIVE TRANSMITTERS.

Do you want to post your chart? There may be something else going on.

Astrologers too often ignore the role of genetics in physical appearance, IMHO. Chances are you resemble one or both parents.

The ascendant is more than your physical appearance. It also says something about your outward personality and mannerisms.

You might get some info from aspecting the ASC to the MC/IC. One would assume they would square but that is not the case.

Where's your Venus? And your Sun? And your Moon? Do you have any planets in your first house? Do you have any planets aspecting your ascendant? (For this purpose, the definition of planet includes the sun and moon).

Planets in the first house, planets aspecting the ascendant, and the ascendant ruler are more significant contributors to physical appearance than the rising sign itself. Sun sign and moon sign can also be. If you have Venus in Leo, or Venus conjunct Sun, or Sun in your first house or aspecting your ascendant, that would account for leonine appearance.

What Taurus rising seems to inevitably confer is something about the neck, Taurus being the ruler of the neck and throat. With Taurus rising, you're likely to have either a long, elegant neck or a short, beefy, barely there neck.
