What is ascendant or 'Rising sign' ('Lagna')?

The Ascendant is the sign rising in the east at a given time (i.e. your birth time) at the given place (i.e. your birth-place). The revolution of the earth around its own axis causes the rise of all the 12 signs in the east at different points of time during the period of 24 hours in a clock-wise motion. The signs rise in seriatim, i.e., Aries first, then Taurus, followed by Gemini and so forth.
