Once you know your Ascendant or Rising sign, then you can find the opposite astrology sign on your Descendant.
The Descendant energies signify what you seek out in others through relationships, partnerships, and connections as they connect with your own energy. Then the energy becomes more specific as we look at the ruling planet and where it is placed in your chart.
For example, if you have Libra Rising, then your Descendant is ruled by the energies of Aries. We'll be exploring more about what this means in your chart, including the importance of the ruling planet, Mars. We look at the aspects and expressions of your natal Mars to understand more about how your Descendant energies may be attracted to certain qualities in other people.
We'll look at each of the 12 Descendant astrology signs through this series of chart tutorial videos.
I hope this helps you understand more about your chart!

New love, abundance, and creation cycles begin with the New Venus energy that is activated on August 13, 2023, when Venus retrograde is exactly conjunct the Sun at 20 deg Leo.
This energy closes a cycle that began in August 2015 (the last New Venus in Leo), as well as looking at what came to fruition during the Full Venus energy in August 2019. Powerful energy from the Sun in its ruling sign of Leo is invigorating Venus with new lightcodes, inspirations, self-worth, prosperity, and love connections.
Powerful soulmate connections, romantic relationships, and heart-based interactions will begin anew now, especially after the 8/8 Lion’s Gate Portal and the Leo New Moon on August 16.

Venus journeys through Leo for 4 months in 2023 due to her retrograde from July 22 to Sept 4, and she will have many significant aspects to other planets that will bring about changes, evolution, and release in money, relationships, friendships, creativity, and your heart’s desires.
Venus in Leo highlights how you love and accept yourself – self-worth, creativity, personal expressions, confidence, strength – and how those qualities create what you want and desire in your world. As Venus moves through Leo, she will have notable interactions with all outer planets, which will require her to receive their influence, and let go of her expectations as her evolutionary process is going to involve many messages.
This podcast provides an overview of the energetic dance Venus in Leo will encounter, including how she is reprogramming her own standards and connecting to more of your authentic needs.

"Every astrological chart has wisdom to offer, but the array of planets, houses and signs can be bewildering.
In Awakening Astrology: Five Key Planetary Energies for Personal Transformation, professional astrologer and bestselling author Molly McCord offers an accessible path that is both easy to grasp and full of potent information.
In clear and concise language, McCord takes a deeper look at the five key planets that influence the most important areas of our lives:
The Sun: How you present yourself outwardly to the world.
The Moon: How you move through your daily life and respond to others.
Mercury: How you think, communicate, and digest information.
The Gemini New Moon on June 18 brings the Sun and Moon together at 26 degrees to create a new intention around communications, thinking, daily tasks, projects, ideas, and any Gemini-ruled themes that are coming to your attention as Gemini season comes to a close.
Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, is also in his home sign and moving quickly through June. Neptune in Pisces is squaring both the Sun and Moon, removing and confusing the typical mental strengths that we regularly rely on and use.
We are being guided to get out of our over-thinking or too much mental stress in order to see a bigger picture that also honors our intuitive messages.
Both Saturn and Neptune travel through Pisces into 2026, as Uranus in Taurus continues to stir up change and liberation at the same time.
Knowing where these energies show up in your chart can be helpful in understanding how the Pisces energies are asking you to release, remove, and surrender, while the Taurus energies bring your attention to what you want to powerfully upgrade.
Working with the best of Earth and Water sign energies opens up creativity, peace, flow, spiritual growth, feminine expressions, receptivity, and greater trust in what can be created based on your authenticity.
A focus on Taurus and Pisces areas of your chart will continue to be strong into 2026!
