Libra and Cancer rising: its meaning
Libra and Cancer Ascendant in your horoscope
At first glance, your Sun sign and your Ascendant seem to present few similarities, and yet, they are both Cardinal signs. As a result, you are willing to keep all situations under your control, and you take it to heart to be the initiator or to show your creativity.
Indeed, contrary to appearances, you are concerned about your interests and your security, whether this trait is a quality or a flaw. You try to avoid being cheated or rejected, and you act accordingly towards your loved ones.
Owing to your Cancer Ascendant, you come across as gruff, secretive, and suspicious, which is found endearing or intriguing. You are a bit poetic and whimsical, and you try to protect yourself against the outer world. This situation does not totally satisfy you because your Libra Sun needs smooth exchanges and, when you are in familiar settings, it prompts you to spontaneously leap into your relationships.
However, your instinctive carefulness may offset the mind-body split which is a Libra trait. Although you are a dreamer and an idealist, when you are upset, you become quite vindictive, and then, you can use either your claws or the sword of justice.

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