Does your handwriting match your Ascendant?

I just had this idea that one's handwriting could match one's Asc, since handwriting shows how we express ourselves, how we present ourselves to others.. so then i thought about my own handwriting, my letters are small, my writing is a bit messy to very messy (only i can read it) and i make large gaps between the words, so it's quite spaced out. I felt it fits my Pisces Asc very well.

How do you feel about this idea? Does your handwriting match your Ascendant? Or do you think handwriting may be more of a Mercury or Sun theme?

Re: Does your handwriting match your Ascendant?

Handwriting is a mercury and third house issue.
The size you write is about confidence. People with large handwriting have more self confidence than people with a small handwriting.
THAT can be an ascendant - issue..
if it's still not in your case and the shape you write is affected by your ascendant too, maybe your asc is just ruled by mercury.

I have a very bad handwriting because I write very fast and impatient..
Guess what.. My mercury is aries

Re: Does your handwriting match your Ascendant?

Interesting, thanks!

My Mercury is in Aries too!! - I'm impatient when i write as well..

3rd house is in Taurus, with Sun and Mars conjunct and NN in it. So my handwriting should be bold and assertive then?

Re: Does your handwriting match your Ascendant?

My handwriting is VERY poor. Always has been. I can read my own writing, but others greatly struggle, or can not do it at all. It takes my teachers/professors/etc a good month or so before they can interpret it. People in the past have jokingly referred to my writing as "hieroglyphics".

My mercury is in gemini in the 8th house conjunct venus and sun, and inconjunct uranus. Then I have uranus neptune and saturn in the 3rd house.

Re: Does your handwriting match your Ascendant?

This is an interestingly fresh question. I write in a smallish, cursive hand. Joined loops, and occasionally my hand jumps. It looks crabbed to me sometimes, but I'm assured it's not indecipherable and actually quite neat. I have Libra ascending; Mercury in Aquarius; third house ruled by Pluto, in which natal Pluto is stationed also. My handwriting is not uniform, it can slant to the left or the right but more often than not is straight. Although I write swiftly, it seldom falls beneath the line. I'm also left-handed, if that matters.

Larger handwriting is not necessarily a sign of self-confidence. Moreover, small handwriting doesn't speak to its lack. Small handwriting is often indicative of precision-intellects, people of an analytical turn of mind. Here is what one site says:

'Large size handwriting can mean extravert and outgoing, or it can mean that the writer puts on an act of confidence, although this behaviour might not be exhibited to strangers.

Small size can, logically, mean the opposite. Small size handwriting can also indicate a thinker and an academic, depending upon other features in the script.

If the writing is small and delicate, the writer is unlikely to be a good communicator with anyone other than those on their own particular wavelength. These people do not generally find it easy to break new ground socially. '

http://www.businessballs.com/graphol...nganalysis.htm


http://handwritinguniversity.com/mem...g-personality/:

'Usually, scholars, researchers and great thinkers have small handwriting. For example, take the handwriting samples of Albert Einstein and Sir Issac Newton. Like most creative thinkers, the two have small handwriting. Now, you may ask why. Have you ever tried writing very small? If no, give it shot. Try writing very very small. You will know it’s not easy to write that way unless it is your normal style, and you will have to be extremely focused. Scholars usually need to shut out the world and direct their complete attention on their work. They do not allow their minds to wander. This need to concentrate and stay focused is reflected by small handwriting. Hence, someone who has a small handwriting has a good ability to concentrate.'


Being a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes, Graphology is naturally a subject of interest. Has anyone seen the sequel to the Robert Downey JR. Holmes? There is a good scene in which he analyzes Moriarty's narcissistic hand.

Re: Does your handwriting match your Ascendant?

I have an Aries rising and Merc in Scorpio. Merc conjunct Sun, Quntile Moon, conjunct Mars, Trine Jupiter, Sextile Saturn, Uranus and Neptune and conjunct Pluto. If any of that is relevant!

My handwriting changes all of the time. Sometimes I will put extra effort into making it look neat but most of the time it's rushed and messy! I write quickly with joined up letters (I'm sure there's a name for that but cant think of it!). Sometimes I feel like I can't get all of my thoughts onto the paper quickly enough and this leads to a rushed, messy style.

Re: Does your handwriting match your Ascendant?

I speculate that one's handwriting might be more of a product of third house

Re: Does your handwriting match your Ascendant?

Thanks, ImNotThere, your comments and links are very interesting!

And yes, it makes total sense, I am rather introverted and reserved and also have a good ability to concentrate, I do a lot of research and think deeply.

Re: Does your handwriting match your Ascendant?

Hi,

Interesting question indeed.

Leo Asc here, with Mer in Aqua, and 3rd H in Libra.

My writing is big. When no one is watching, it's untidy, but I used to be praised for my writing often at school. My handwriting can be better looking than myself, if I want it to be. There's a childlike-look to it meaning that it hasn't matured over the years.

Yeah, it likes to be noticed, is generous in taking up space, and all my 'i's are crowned with wide-circled dots, lol. Oh and finally, it yearns praise. Perhaps it would be a good idea to post a sample of it, so it gets the attention it deserves.

Re: Does your handwriting match your Ascendant?

handwriting belongs with Mercury and the third house rather. If there is a connection to the ascendant that may add to it. Now that I think about it my Mercury sextiles Mars and I write quickly and rather carelessly and it is all sloping forward. Typical!!

Hi again,

you made me laugh, describing your own Ascendant so humorously!!
It made me think to start another thread "What's funny about your rising sign?"

Re: Does your handwriting match your Ascendant?

Haha, Pisces rules my 3rd house, Sagitarius rules the ascendant, Jupiter is in Pisces in the 3rd house, with Moon. Mercury is in Aquarius. My handwriting is usually fairly large, its not tiny. It changes, its a bit eccentric and I sometimes find it hard to read! Its usually legible though. A friend of mine knows how to analyse handwriting, he said its optimistic. The dots are usually a bit ahead of their 'i' and 'j's. When I am making notes for my studies, I use different colours and make little pictures, to help learn. On my Christmas cards, I draw flowers with smily faces in, and suns, lol!

Yes, from my observation, people with Sagittarius prominent or strong Jupiter tend to have fairly large (expansive) handwriting.

Re: Does your handwriting match your Ascendant?

My penmanship is a lazy man's version of cursive where all the printed letters melt into one another but my mood really dictates the style, from clear, continuous flow to choppy, italicized scribbles fluctuating within the lines.

Leo asc, Mercury in Cancer in 11th, conjunct w/ Pluto and the Moon in Scorpio ruled 3rd house. Mercury opposes Uranus which definitely affects my ability to write.

Based on what other's have written, my ascendant doesn't really match my handwriting.

Re: Does your handwriting match your Ascendant?

My handwriting is cursive (not that i learned cursive I just kind of picked it up to write faster), and big and gets bigger and bigger if i am upset (only cancer 3rd input I can see) or maybe moon in Sag cancers significator would account for size. Mercury in Aquarius 9th house I feel I do communicate like the eccentric professor type and love learning (venus on mc in Aquarius don't think the taurus rising has any input for me however as it is about how the world see you the world mainly see typed documents lol very conservative presentation even if the ideas themself are mad.

Re: Does your handwriting match your Ascendant?

I have a cursive handwriting and have received compliments for it.Employees who work at stores usually compliment me on my signature and tell me that my hand writing is lovely.

I have Venus (aries) and Mercury (Pisces) all in the 3rd house (Mars as well in pisces).I also have a Libra MC which the Venus opposes.Don't know how that plays out

Re: Does your handwriting match your Ascendant?

I think you are on to something with handwriting matching the Ascendant or at least matching a sign or planet's heavy influence in a chart. I will give you a good example.

I know of two people whose handwriting is not consistent and changes all the time. The first person's handwriting starts out upright and small. Then by the end of the next few words, it will be slanted to the right. Extremely slanted. Then a few sentences later it is back upright and maybe bigger. Or smaller. There is no consistency whatsoever. It is elusive and changing and fluid. It's like there is no sense of what the style of writing is.

The 2nd person's handwriting changes according to the mood. There is somewhat of a "style" but it is also changing and does not often look the same. Sometimes the print is upright, sometimes it is slanted. Sometimes the cursive is flowy and beautiful. Sometimes it looks really messy. It's like she has no grasp on her own style of writing.

One has Neptune conjunct Sun, Mercury almost exact with Neptune contacting all other personal planets. The other has Neptune in close aspect with all personal planets as well as Neptune conjunct Ascendant, almost exact.
