For example if your Ascendant is in Leo, your Sun is in Virgo, then your Sun will be in the 2nd sign from Leo, then we say your Sun is in the 2nd house, so your Solar qualities of consciousness(action, shining your light, success, achievements) will manifest in reality through the 2nd house-material, financial goals and achievements.
The aspects of the other planets towards the Ascendant-their positional relationship to it, show how easy or hard you can manifest their energy on your path in life!
For example: Venus-the planet of love, being in the 6th sign from Ascendant, which is a less harmonious angle of connection, shows that the person will have problems manifesting love-they might be more critical towards themselves, have a poorer self worth(Venus) and have to try harder to connect to this planet, hence its positive results(happy relationships) can be delayed in this person's life.
For example, someone with a fire sign Ascendant, will usually have hotter temperature of the body, more muscle, more energy and vitality-very fire like, while someone with an Earth sign Ascendant will have--you got it..a more solid, earthy, sensual body shape, usually more endurance too.
Just giving you some simple examples to see how it works.
Its natural ruler is Leo and it’s in the chart section of “private, other”. The fifth house is where we bring others into our private world. A lot of people wonder why the Sun (the King or Queen of the zodiac) is at the bottom of the chart, under the horizon — under the radar. The astrological natal chart works in an unusual way. On my new site, I try to file all astrology posts under the Astrology tag but some may get missed so you may want to consider searching the Astrology category.
However, the way it really works is that the Sun is in the center and all planets revolve around it. And everything, every planet and house, is modified or gets touched and warmed up (or cooled down) by your Sun’s rays, power, and strength. Because the Earth is in the center of most natal charts, the Sun casts its shadow differently and the top of the chart is the South and the bottom of the chart is the North. Long comments may take a long time for me to get back to, if ever -- but feel free to share as little or as much as you like. Please book an appointment for extensive personal analysis.
Then scroll to the planetary detail table and see the sign on your Ascendant.

The Ascendant is the actually the zodiac sign of the Earth!! This is the zodiac sign which rises on the Eastern Horizon the minute we are born!
The sign which rises on the Eastern horizon changes once every 1-2 hours, because of the rotation of our Earth on its Axis.
Because the Ascendant is our body and also our Earthly reality it also marks the start of the Horoscope! If we did not have the material body, we would not have an Earthly experience, and no horoscope, after all!
That is the reason astrologers always look at your transits in regards to your ascendant sign-your physical body and what tangibly happens to it, while you are walking this earthly journey(the Ascendant)!
The houses(the other signs counted from your Ascendant) indicate specific areas of manifestation in life.
