Always the fast moving planet aspects the slower one. In the example here, Venus is faster than Jup, so Venus sextiles Jup.

Re: Ascendant and Appearance - do they match up?

Bc green is compliments red in the color wheel, when you mix them you make brown. Orange is red with a little yellow, when mixed with green you'll make a light brown.

Yeah but it’s not mixed I’m saying usually multicoloured eyes that contain green are considered hazel
If his eyes were blue and grey that’s silver but the green throws in s curve which makes me lean towards hazel.

I'm 24 and people think I'm 17 or so

I have a tendency to change my appearance a lot and I've gone through many phases. I'll get bored and change things up. If it matters, I have Mars and Moon conjunct my AC, Pluto and Merc sextile, and Neptune and Uranus trine, and Venus square. So I guess I have a lot of other forces there acting on it, but I'm too new to know exactly how. I'd assume the Pluto and Uranus can give me a penchant for change in addition to my Gemini Venus. I do have my Mercury sextile to my Moon and Mars, opposing my Uranus and Neptune, and trine my Pluto too

I've had phases where I'd purposely go against the grain fashionwise in absurd ways. At one point I'd go around in slippers just bc they were comfy. I had a phase where I'd only wear grey dress pants and a skintight, black zip up hoodie. I had another brief period I'm probably gonna return to where I wore red makeup around my eyes to make myself look dead lmao. If I get really bored, I'll feel like getting a new piercing or tattooing myself
I think Mars on the Asc. will make you do crazy things to your appearance, even sort of try a rebellious streak, especially to keep you out of boredom (boredom is something that gives earth signs comfort due to its stability factor). Even the "going in the complete opposite direction" and not being "neat and tidy" is Mars' doing. Your Mars is in the same sign as your Asc., so in Virgo, too, correct?

So, you have a Cancer Asc., but don't look like it?

Questions:
Can you describe what you look like? Like describe your appearance?

Are there any planets on the Asc./ in the first house?

What aspects your Moon because it rules your Asc.

Please, people, instead of just saying a flat-out No, it really would be more helpful if you could provide some information as to what you think your kind of Asc. should look like and what you, in contrast, look like. Also, include if there are planets on your Asc. We are trying to learn here, as I said in my first post. A simple yes or especially a no does not help with learning.

You've read my chart b4 why would people say I either look dead or that I need to calm down, and there's no in between?

Yeah, Mars in Virgo
Funny, earth seems to be powerful in my chart, but I hate stability. I'm quite averse to it. I am lead cardinal with fixed last, tho. Actually, stability makes me uncomfortable for many, many reasons from pure boredom to not liking the idea of feeling like I'm not transforming. Routine makes me feel suffocated or like I'm caught in some stasis. It's curious

Re: Ascendant and Appearance - do they match up?

I'm a Capricorn rising with the rising aspecting the Sun/Moon mp in Scorpio and conj the sun that's all that aspects my rising (I only use 3 orbs).

Re: Ascendant and Appearance - do they match up?

My MC ruler is in Scorpio and is in stellium with Pluto, my moon is in the eight as is my north node and my moon aspects Pluto. My MC/AC midpoint also aspects Pluto.

Understandable because, as I said, Mars is of rebellious nature that does not like to be contained. It therefore falls in earthy and fixed Taurus. It exalts in cardinal Capricorn because Capricorn lets Mars move ahead, but giving it a certain direction thanks to Saturn.

Re: Ascendant and Appearance - do they match up?

I have my Mercury, Venus, Pluto, Uranus and Neptune along with the Mars/Moon conjunct acting on my ascendant in major aspects. I wonder if that affects the appearance or demeanor as well even if they aren't conjuncts

Re: Ascendant and Appearance - do they match up?

Hello. Newbie here and to astrology. I'm trying to make sense of what I am reading on here; it's all very interesting. From what little I have read, I don't feel I look much like my Scorpio Asc but maybe it has to do with Venus and my Pisces moon softening the Scorpio angles?

Personally, I have seen conjunctions - first and then oppositions to have maximum influence. I, personally, will only consider trines and squares (so main aspects, only) if these are tights (under 3*). I don't consider septiles and quintiles.

Would you care to share your natal chart from astro.com (preferably in Placidus)?

As a woman in my late 60s, my appearance has changed a lot since I was young. I used to have very turbulent, curly, thick, naturally very light blonde hair that looked like nobody else's. As I aged, my hair got thinner and darker. Right now, it's partly a sandy grey-blonde and partly a darker brown. (I've never colored my hair.) This is why I think that Uranus square one's ascendant can dramatically alter the stereotypical descriptions of ascendants. Also, Neptune in the first house. We tend to be the chameleons of the zodiac. I'll post what I call my "close enough" nativity. It's not the exact one, due to my privacy concerns, but it's very close and preserves the accurate chart's structure.

Re: Ascendant and Appearance - do they match up?

I would say for me, generally, yes, I do look like my Virgo rising. I am often told I seem shy or stand-offish. I have not been told this by other people, but I have a tendency to be high-strung or nervous in a lot of situations. At work I've been told I am good at peace-keeping and staying calm, i.e. in situations with angry people (I'm a receptionist). At times I come across to others as younger than I am. I'm fairly slim and usually I have a rather serious expression about me. I slouch a lot. I have light-ish straight brown hair naturally and I like to wear it down and keep it long. Right now it's almost half-way down my back. I'm considering dyeing it platinum blonde or ombre blonde (again). I have 5 ear piercings and a nose stud.

One thing that comes up often is Virgo risings being health conscious and taking good care of their bodies. I don't feel that applies to me. I most often don't exercise and I usually eat what I want whether it's a good choice or not. I have a terrible caffeine addiction. One summer I was eating mostly vegan and exercising at least once a week but it didn't last. I just checked over my transits at the time and I'm not sure I saw anything significant for my ascendant, but it was an emotionally terrible time (hence the self-care routine). Saturn was over my Moon/Pluto.

Ascendant aspects: Opposite Mars (orb 6d), Sextile Moon/Pluto (orb 1d), and Trine Neptune/Uranus (orbs 4/5d). My Mercury is in Aries in the 7th house.

I don't have anything in the 1st house.

It turns out I had been wrong about my birth time for a bit. I confused it with my sister's. This is my actual chart. Slightly different. It actually takes Mars and moon out of the 12th and into my 1st, so suppose maybe that intensifies the martian energy since it's not just conjunct
So there's no Uranus, Neptune, or Plutonian influence there unless aspects to Moon and Mars or Mercury count
