Cancer and Cancer rising: its meaning

Cancer and Cancer Ascendant in your horoscope

To laze around like a cat in a warm and cosy cocoon seems to be one of your favourite activities. Indeed, you are twice a Cancer, and your behaviour is quite the same when you are in society and in private settings.

You are slightly reserved, but you wear no mask. Your instinctive self-restraint stems from your pressing need to have at your disposal a living environment in which you feel totally safe. In situations of danger, or when you are exposed and feeling vulnerable, you suddenly withdraw in your intimate sphere like a crab seeking refuge in its shell.


You extend immense tenderness to all the people whom you appreciate and protect, at the risk of smothering them. Indeed, Cancer and its powerful claws may become tyrannical! You are overly sensitive, and you often have mood swings.

However, your poetic and affectionate facet charms those who are lucky enough to be judged worthy and to be admitted, after many an ordeal, in the small circle of your intimate friends.

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.

Cancer sign

Your Sun sign is Cancer, which means that it is only when people know you well that your Cancer traits become obvious. They may be different from your outward appearance, which is influenced by your Ascendant sign.

Cancer Ascendant

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, but it is not the case for you.
