Cancer and Capricorn rising: its meaning
Cancer and Capricorn Ascendant in your horoscope
This sign combination does not seem too contradictory at first glance. Although they occupy exactly opposite places in the zodiacal wheel, Cancer and Capricorn share the same need for quietness, they steer clear of the surrounding bustle and relish their sacrosanct inner life.
Owing to your Capricorn Ascendant, your outward appearance is serious and slightly surly, and you behave with a self-derision which is blood-curdling or amusing, depending on your interlocutor.
Your Cancer inner self urges you to mistrust people who are too casual or who do not respect your personal world, in which you welcome only the most understanding persons. In moments of calm, you are nonchalant, but when you feel that your well-being or your loved ones are endangered, you become very vindictive.
You are highly controlled, even haughty, in society, but you drop down your weapons when you are in familiar settings.

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 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.
Your Ascendant sign is Capricorn, which means that, at first glance, people feel the influence of Capricorn on your outward appearance It may be different from your inner self, which defined by your Sun sign.
