The ascendant/rising sign (Aquarius 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 Aquarius will somewhat modify and shape the characteristics of your sun sign.
For example, if you are a Capricorn with Aquarius rising, your natural caution and carefulness (a la Capricorn) will be tempered and modified by the Aquarian tendency towards being a trendsetter. Or, if you are a Leo with Aquarius rising, then you likely will not have all the usual Leo human warmth but instead be more comfortable with some detachment. If you have an air sun sign (Gemini or Libra or Aquarius) paired with Aquarius rising, then you may appear doubly ungrounded and extreme with a great emphasis on the thinking apsects of life and humanity.
With Aquarius rising/ascendant, the qualities of Aquarians that will likely flavor your sun sign include being: original, individualistic, headstrong, contrary, humanitarian, inspirational and/or exciting.
