Aquarius and Cancer rising: its meaning
Aquarius and Cancer Ascendant in your horoscope
With this duet of very different signs merging in you, you have everything required to puzzle the members of your entourage and... yourself! Your problem is to blend your thirst for newness and active participation in collective actions with your need to protect your privacy and to cultivate an imaginary world or your secret fiefdom.
Indeed, you are often torn between these two contradictory tendencies which come from your Aquarius Sun and your Cancer Ascendant. When you are in unknown settings, your first reaction is to behave cautiously, as if you instinctively fear that unveiling your true self may endanger your inner balance. You dread showing your vulnerability and your emotionalism, and for this reason, you harden your shell.
Your Aquarius Sun is willing to remain free in every regard, including towards its personal attachments, so as to be available for as many people as possible and to imprint its mark on the big collective whole. Although you are impersonal and disinterested, you feel that you must protect your interests as well as those of your friends and relatives.
In order to reconcile your quite contradictory tendencies, bear in mind that both signs share the same vivid imagination and sharp intuition, with the nuance that for Aquarius, they are more focused on the future and the society, and for Cancer, they are more laden with nostalgia and lyricism.

The Ascendant and the Sun in sign
If you have a doubt about your sign or your Ascendant, you can get it immediately.
The rising sign, i.e. the sign which crosses the eastern horizon at the moment of birth, is a major element of the natal chart because it describes our general behaviour and our outward appearance and indicates how people perceive us when they meet us for the first time.
It is important to grasp the difference between the Ascendant sign - the rising sign - and the Sun sign, i.e., the sign in which the Sun is posited at the moment of birth. Unlike the Ascendant, the Sun sign refers to the deepest part of us which is more genuine but less accessible because it is meant for our friends and relatives only.
Your Sun sign is Aquarius, which means that it is only when people know you well that your Aquarius traits become obvious. They may be different from your outward appearance, which is influenced by your Ascendant sign.
Your Ascendant sign is Cancer, which means that, at first glance, people feel the influence of Cancer on your outward appearance It may be different from your inner self, which defined by your Sun sign.
