Leo and Cancer rising: its meaning
Leo and Cancer Ascendant in your horoscope
Your inner self is marked by the sense of honour and loyalty towards yourself as well as towards an idea, a project, or a group. Owing to your Cancer Ascendant, you are reluctant to assert yourself right from the beginning, and you prefer to wait until you find out whether people deserve to discover your true self and your personal world.
However, your Leo Sun finds it difficult to remain impassive whenever it is humiliated. Nevertheless, thanks to Cancer's carefulness, you are capable of waiting for the right time and of choosing the proper means to react. You must be aware that your behaviours sometimes seem fuzzy and enigmatic to your entourage, even though to you, they are totally in line with your inner and often... irrational logic.
Owing to your Leo Sun, your feelings are powerful, and you see the world as an entertaining colourful show in which you play your part in a dramatic fashion, though you do not fool yourself.
Sensitivity and lunar emotions, which are Cancer's attributes, prompt you to remain on the alert when you meet people for the first time and to reveal your protective, yet possessive side only later on. However, do not be too stubborn, demanding or tyrannical.

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