Cancer and Virgo rising: its meaning
Cancer and Virgo Ascendant in your horoscope
With your Cancer Sun, you enjoy collecting all sorts of things and symbols, both in the literal and figurative senses, and you do so in the sweet anarchistic way which you jealously protect. Cancer revels in its Capernaum and the real sense of security it provides.
Your Virgo Ascendant, which influences your outward appearance, prefers to sort out, file, organise, and analyse because it is concerned about efficiency and perfection and obsessed by the slightest untidy detail.
People appreciate your legendary reassuring helpfulness, your humble, discreet and reserved manners, as well as your sound rational analyses. Nevertheless, people should make no mistake.
Indeed, beneath your introverted demeanour, your Cancer inner self remains active and is endowed with a strong high-esteem, even though at times, it yearns for the illusory power which its vivid and megalomaniac imagination instils into its dreams.

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