If you have a natal planet conjunct your Ascendant, this should have a visible impact on your physical appearance.
If the planet is Venus, for example, you will most likely have a beautiful appearance, a great complexion and possibly dimples on your face.
I'd like to do a series of articles about planets conjunct the Ascendant and how this relates to physical appearance. I'm looking for volunteers to send me photos of consenting people they know who have a planet conjunct their Ascendant.
We can start this series with the eighteen month old baby pictured here. It's an example of someone born with Jupiter exactly conjunct their Ascendant.
Jupiter conjunct the Ascendant would typically give a larger than normal physical frame. People with Jupiter in their first house can often have weight problems at some point in their life.
Jupiter is the greatest benefic planet there is in astrology, and if this planet is conjunct your Ascendant you are considered very blessed. Your health and sport abilities will be better than average, and you are likely to be popular with your peers and the world around you. All social affairs will come much easier to you than for most people.
Jupiter conjunct your Ascendant will make you jubilant, at least in outer appearances, and also portend a philosophical or religious tendency at some point in your life. If you are a lawyer, you may excel in court. You are the outer embodiment of Jupiter, the planet representing the judicial system. Typically, with Jupiter conjunct your ascendant, you can see the 'big picture' better than others. You could also do very well in sales and advertising, as you are much more persuasive than most people.
Here's another photo of baby Ascendant=Jupiter, this time on his first birthday. Does he not look sincere and all Jupiterian;-)?
I'm somewhat biased here as this is my child.
When looking at planets conjunct the Ascendant, it's important to be sure you are working with an exact birth time. Every four minutes the Ascendant moves one degree. So if you are half-an-hour off the exact birth time, this could move the Ascendant eight degrees off where you thought it was.
I'd love to get photos and chart interpretations from other people as concerns Jupiter or other planets conjunct the Ascendant. Please comment below or email me.
Update May 2006: Just got the first Jupiter Conjunct Ascendant photo emailed in. Thanks much for this.
This young man has a Jupiter Uranus Ascendant conjunction in Sagittarius. He is 1.90 meters tall and 80 kilograms and was born on the 10th of September 1983 in Instanbul Turkey. (His sagittarian line-up is Jupiter at 3 degrees, Uranus at 5 degrees and Ascendant at 10 degrees.)
Update February 2007: Thanks much to Lorraine for also sending photos. She says;
"Hi. Attached is a photo of my grandson, Daniel, who was born on 2/15/06 at 11:58 pm, Beverly, Massachusetts. The first photo is his 3 day old photo; the 2nd was taken this past Christmas. He really has the Jupiter/Ascendant look ... the Scorpio eyes to boot! (Scoprio Ascendant)."
I have this aspect too, my Ascendant in aquarius, conjunct Jupiter (square pluto though..).
I read your article, and i liked it so i decided to send you a photo of mine :)
I was born in 18 september 1985, 17:15 in Thessaloniki Greece
I am 1.81m tall, 60 killos(hopefully i don't have weight problems, maybe because i have a very strong saturn as well)
I hope it helps to your research :)
I loved your article on planets conjunct the ascendant!
