The Rising is the mask that we show to the world, to protect our true selves (Moon). The mask (Rising) guides our conscious mind (Sun), to become who we are supposed to be and beyond our superficial level (Sun) there lies who we truly are (Moon).

Our egos (Sun) shine bright and shows the world what we’re trying to achieve and how we see the world (Rising) is fueled by our temperament (Mars) to get us there. If and when we come across obstacles we internalize it (Moon), process it (Sun), cope with it (Rising), and project it (Mars).
