Quick and Slow Rising Starsigns
Two types of zodiacal signs universally known as Long and Short Ascension [Signs] and listed under that name in every astrological dictionary.
The standard textbook description here-below actually sums up all the literature we have on this topic. You will note that there is no reference as to meaning. Not a sausage. All to say, these two kinds of starsigns may as well be a lost tribe of Indians somewhere in the Amazon, so it's no surprise if you haven't heard of this thing in your many travels.
Standard Textbook Explanation of Long and Short Ascension Signs
[Writer's remarks in this font]
So-called long and short ascending, because the ones take longer to rise and the others come over the horizon much more quickly. This is due to the earth's tilt, which causes time to transpire very unevenly at certain latitudes.
LONG Ascension Signs
So-called LONG, because they take longer to rise [or linger over the horizon]
The long ascending signs are: Cancer Leo Virgo Libra Scorpio and Sagittarius—Virgo and Libra being the slowest.
NOTE that this is valid only in the Northern Hemisphere. The situation is reversed in the Southern Hemisphere, where the long ascending signs become short ascending.
[They mean if you were born in the Southern Hemisphere under one of these same 6 signs, then that would make it a SHORT ascending starsign, instead of a long one]
SHORT Ascension Signs
So-called SHORT, because they come over the horizon much more quickly.
The short ascending signs are: Capricorn Aquarius Pisces Aries Taurus and Gemini—Pisces and Aries being the fastest-moving.
NOTE that this is valid only in the Southern Hemisphere. The situation is reversed in the Northern Hemisphere, where the short ascending signs become long ascending.
[They mean if you were born in the Northern Hemisphere under one of these same 6 signs, then that would make it a LONG ascending starsign, instead of a short one]
END of Textbook Explanation
So basically all we know regarding these two types of signs is that
one moves faster than the other, and this will be reversed depending
on whether you were born in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere.
