Capricorn and Cancer rising: its meaning
Capricorn and Cancer Ascendant in your horoscope
With this sign combination, it is not surprising if people think that you are difficult to figure out! Your Sun sign and your Ascendant sign are equally discreet. They both jealously guard their tranquillity and give you a strong inclination for inner explorations and solitary daydreaming.
Cancer's emotionalism remains deeply concealed beneath its shell, and when you meet people for the first time, you come across as a calm and careful person. Nevertheless, you react very aggressively when you feel harmed and when you have to protect your loved ones or your private fiefdom. You disconcert your entourage with your mood swings or your personal logic which is a bit irrational.
Capricorn and Cancer occupy exactly opposite places in the zodiacal wheel, which means that their characteristics are opposed but also complementary. Indeed, Cancer's lunar and privacy-oriented mind clashes with Capricorn's saturnine and disembodied mind.
Only the people who know you well are aware of your inner self, defined by your Capricorn Sun, and understand that, although you are stern, distant, and clumsy in expressing your affectionate feelings, you remain loyal and you fulfil your responsibilities in all circumstances. You are somehow a tender and sincere heart locked up behind a solid shell...

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 Capricorn, which means that it is only when people know you well that your Capricorn 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.
