And when it comes to dating, it’s nearly impossible to forget a first impression; so much of a first date, or even an actual first meeting, comes down to whether or not you like what you see on a person’s dating profile or when you see them in front of you. You judge a potential partner by the way they carry themselves, the way they act, the way they treat others around them and the way you think you would mesh together based on that impression. And all of those things that impact the way you and others are perceived upon first glance can be traced back to your rising sign.

So how can you use your rising sign as your secret weapon to achieving success? For starters, investigate what your rising sign is and what it says about your style. For example, if your rising sign is Aries then “you’re passionate, driven, fiery, and confident. Your pioneering (and at times rebellious) attitude shows though in your personal style, making you a trendsetter among your circles.” If you dress to match your rising sign persona, then you’ll not only feel more confident and look your best, but you’ll actually emanate a more confident appearance, which people will notice.
