It's in your third house, meaning you feel the need to distinguish yourself from others through the things you know and are familiar with.
Your ascendant is the "mask" you present to people. It can be seen in your personal style and how you come off to people when you first meet. Some say it becomes less relevant as you get older.

Your energy makes you seem either like a know-it-all or the life of the party—but always the center of attention.
