The ascendant/rising sign (Sagittarius or otherwise) describes how we appear to be, whereas the sun sign describes who we really are in a wider sense than just appearance. The charactersitics of Sagittarius will somewhat modify and shape the characteristics of your sun sign.
For example, if you are a Leo with Sagittarius rising, then you will tend to be more indulgent and tactless than the average Leo. Or if you are a Cancer with Sagittarius rising, then your natural tendencies towards nurturing and humanitarianism will be tempered by Sagittarius's adventurous drives. Also, you will also tend to have even more humor and optimism when it comes to family matters. If you have a fire sun sign (Aries, Leo or Sagittarius) with a rising Sagittarius, then you will have a double fire emphasis that might prove to be either extremely successful or equally disastrous.
With Sagittarius rising/ascendant, the qualities of Sagittarius that will flavor your sun sign include being: knowledge-seeking, adventuroous, optimistic, overconfident, careless and/or opinionated.
