Cancer and Leo rising: its meaning

Cancer and Leo Ascendant in your horoscope

The Lord in his kingdom... With your Cancer Sun, you endlessly roam your inner world or your favourite place like a king who inventories his lands and his subjects.

Owing to your Leo Ascendant, you strive to keep your head high in order not to disappoint anybody. When people meet you for the first time, they notice your warm individualism and your shining self-assurance, and they fall under the charm of Leo's unique sense of humour. Even when your extroverted manners are not too obvious, your desire for recognition and admiration is clearly palpable, which does not necessarily mean that you are egocentric, although there are grounds for wondering...


Your Ascendant Leo enjoys the dramatic and spectacular sides of life, whereas your Cancer Sun is deeply moved by its fanciful and marvellous aspects. Unlike Leo, Cancer has a strong tendency to become withdrawn and protect itself.

Some people think that you are pusillanimous, while some others say that you are careful. In both cases, you are definitely more vulnerable than you would like to appear to be.

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.

Leo Ascendant

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