when you  are born, whichever sign is rising in east horizon ,thats your ascendant sign

the sign setting in west is opposite i.e 7th house
westeners follow sunsigns but thats too large a space as many thousands are born in a month and we cant predict narrowly and it mostly tells  physical attributes
indians  follow moon signs which is narrow as moon travels through a sign in just above 2 days and moon tells mentality

lagna/ascendant is most accurate because for every 2 hours it changes

It\'s very straight fwd to know any person\'s ascendant sign, if one knows Date of birth then any news paper will have the dates and sign which is equal to ascendant, for a moon sigh we need experts like in this form is my understanding...

sunsigns depend on month and date
moonsigns depend on date and moon in which nakshatra
ascendant(lagna) depends on precice time of birth as it keeps changing every 2 hrs
