  • 4 Important Truths About Capricorn Rising

    Four important facts concerning the Capricorn Rising sign are that Saturn is the planetary ruler; family life has an important role in developing the Capricorn Rising personality; people who are Capricorn Rising are sincere, dependable and successful; and they function well in structured places.

    Someone’s rising sign is the result of the zodiac sign that was moving on top of the eastern horizon at the precise time they were born. The rising sign, which is also called the Ascendant, often deals with our inherent defenses and our natural reactions to everyday problems and life situations. To get insights to help you face personal issues, interact successfully with others, and understand your own personality, it is a good idea to gain a full understanding of your rising sign. Following are important details pertaining to Capricorn Rising.

    Its planetary ruler is Saturn.

    The Capricorn Rising sign is ruled by Saturn, a planet of restriction, longevity and structure.

    It implies a restricted structure or a difficult birth and certain difficulties. Capricorns may experience trials, but by perservering will conquer the challenges.

    The experiences of growing up are integral to how a Capricorn Rising individual develops.

    Parents who are at the bad extreme, however, might push their children to be something they are not. One of the distinguishing characteristics of a Capricorn Rising is the tendency to become very responsible individuals who can be readily relied upon by family and friends. Usually these individuals assume such roles from a young age either because their families have molded their personalities for such a role, or because they themselves took on this role all on their own. Family is very important to Capricorn Risings, who are always concerned about keeping their loved ones safe and secure.

    “Serious, success-driven, and competent” are terms that describe people who are Capricorn Rising.

    Seriousness is a distinctive trait of Capricorn Rising people. This seriousness is accompanied by competence and a mind geared toward success. Due to the driven nature of Capricorn Rising, folks born under this sign tend to be highly successful. Typically, they will be highly aware of the impact they have upon those around them. Generally speaking, a person with Capricorn rising will be diligent and responsible and consider their appearance and behavior very important. They must be on guard for taking on excessive pressure. Capricorn Rising describes people who endure mental turmoil due to their feelings of inadequacy. These individuals constantly worry if they are working hard enough or providing properly for themselves and those they love.

    They work well in structured environments.

    Because of the Capricorn Ascendant’s affinity for structure and goal-oriented mindset, they function well in structured work environments. Such folks tend to make good managers or supervisors. People born under the Capricorn Rising sign thrive on formality. Their decision making process and actions are based more on what they perceive as acceptable standards and norms instead of trusting their feelings. They need to know every rule first and then change their behavior into these actions. In general, they are quite qualified to be in positions of authority; unfortunately, they can be quite strict and controlling in these positions.

    Rising signs help a person understand himself and how he interacts with others but, ultimately, the quality of a person’s life depends on how he uses his personal traits in the choices he makes.

  • Art and Awareness Unite to Educate Society About the Sikhs

    WASHINGTON, D.C. (PRWEB) March 9, 2006

    Do you think everyone with a turban and beard is from the Arab world? Have you ever met someone who is Sikh? A new website offers answers to those questions through a medium which all find enjoyable: watching videos. The new web initiative provides a multi-media outlet to learn about Sikhism, as well as an opportunity for the Sikh community to display their creativity with a focus on visual artworks.

    The followers of Sikhism, a monotheistic faith based in India, still continue to face unwanted scrutiny in the post 9/11 era due to their unique identity of colorful turbans and uncut hair. Worse, many are unaware of their contributions to the fields of medicine and technology, their heroic bravery as soldiers in both World Wars, or civil service as elected legislative officials in several democratic countries. To date, the Sikhs are often mistaken to be followers of the Islamic faith in today’s news media enriched world. Even with multiple outreach efforts, they are often incorrectly affiliated as members of the Arabic community.

    “Through use of art, the time has come for all to appreciate the beauty of the Sikh culture,” stated Sartaj Singh Dhami, co-founder of Also as the founder of Dashmesh Pictures, a film production team focused on promoting Sikhism, Dhami feels that can offer another venue for society to learn who the Sikhs are. Additionally, it reminds members of the Sikh community to recapture their pride. Dhami went on to say that, “With recent world events, unfortunately some people in our community allow peer pressure or lack of exposure to prevent them from being proud of their rich cultural heritage. It is our sole hope that this website will allow all to be more comfortable, and welcoming, towards the followers of Sikhism.”

    The website inaugurates with several videos created and produced by Dashmesh Pictures highlighting how Sikhism was started, the Sikh martial arts of Gatka, as well as the “Sikh on the Street,” a short film containing interviews of Non-Sikhs as they share their thoughts of who the Sikhs are. Supreet K. Rekhi, co-founder of, emphasizes the need for community members (Sikh and non-Sikh alike) to submit their creative work. Dashmesh Pictures will also continue to produce and post additional videos with similar messages.

    1.) Provide knowledge to society of who the Sikhs are through creative works, as a mechanism to promote educational awareness, acceptance, and communal harmony.
