Gemini and Cancer rising: its meaning
Gemini and Cancer Ascendant in your horoscope
Your Cancer Ascendant indicates how you are perceived by people. Cancer is well-known for the importance it pays to its roots, its family or any sort of clan, and its instinctive mistrust of whoever does not belong to its world. On the other hand, it behaves very warmly and protectively towards the persons it feels comfortable with.
As people get to know you better, they discover your inner self, defined by your Gemini Sun, which is extremely mobile, lively, and curious, and endowed with great communication skills. Whereas Cancer cultivates its inner world, concretely or symbolically, Gemini gladly lets itself be grabbed by its entourage and by the ideas it can glean here and there.
It is most likely that you feel torn between these tendencies.
In any case, you are at the same time fanciful, whimsical, and lunatic because these traits are common to both Cancer and Gemini.

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