Celebrity Rising Sign Examples
Aries rising: David Souter, Helen Reddy, Dick Gregory, Pete Rose, Lynn Redgrave
Martin Luther King Jr is most often cast as Taurus rising based on a rounded noon birth time. I assure you that is not correct. Just take a good look at his biography and his leadership and courage to continue confronting an unjust system. Aries rising all the way. The Asc is contra-parallel Moon and Venus, smoothing out the usual bony ovate facial outline we’d normally see with Aries.
Taurus rising: Sigourney Weaver, Joe Pesci, Melanie Griffith, Daryl Hannah, Mariah Carey
Gemini rising: Julia Child, Peter Fonda, Edward Snowden,
John Wayne, Trent Reznor, George S. Patton
Cancer rising: General Norman Schwarzkopf, The 14th Dalai Lama, Liv Ullman, Vincent van Gogh, Jonathan Winters
Edgar Cayce is most often charted as Leo rising, but that is not correct. John Willner validated a Cancer rising chart for him and this fits his personality as he was a retiring family man. I have further validated this chart for myself and its progressions fit very precisely with very specific warnings Cayce gave himself during a particular trance reading. William Stickevers has also rectified a chart for Cayce that has Cancer rising.
Cayce also stated in reading #254-002 about his own birth horoscope, “Mars just set.” Mars was at 11° Capricorn so the DC (descendant) must be in the middle to late degrees of that sign. Thus middle to late Cancer rising.
Leo rising: Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Ashley Judd
Mohammad Ali, Katie Holmes, George Carlin, Eric Idle
Virgo rising: Tom Hanks, Woody Allen, Tiger Woods
Jacques Cousteau, Nicolas Sarkozy
Benedict Cumberbatch’s biographer gave a time of noon, but this does not create an accurate chart. He is a Virgo riser who outpowers the usual Virgo typology with Moon in Aries parallel Pluto and contra-parallel Uranus. See the correct chart.

John F Kennedy, Nancy Reagan
