Pisces and Cancer rising: its meaning
Pisces and Cancer Ascendant in your horoscope
With such a sign combination, you are besieged by Water signs! You are an incorrigible dreamer with a personality which is hard to figure out, for people and for yourself alike. The Water element deals with the affective and sensitive part of the personality, as well as with the intuitive and unconscious perception of the world. This is the reason why you are naturally interested in irrational matters and you accept the complexity of human beings and things, even though your open-mindedness may be mistaken for passivity, lack of realism, or fatalism.
However, your Cancer Ascendant is a Cardinal and thus enterprising sign. When people meet you for the first time, you give the feeling that you know how to use your claws in order to get what you want, and your solid shell suggests that security is a major concern. You are secretive and inaccessible, and you pamper the people you admit into your private circle.
Having said this, it is worth underlining that, even in intimate settings, you keep a part of mystery because Pisces is the Zodiac's elusive sign par excellence. You enjoy delving at leisure into your imaginary world, which is so remote from the usual norms, or you obstinately dedicate yourself to a cause or a person, depending on your mood.
Your apparent impassivity conceals a pressing need for emotional vertigoes and an irresistible desire to play with all the facets of your sensitivity.

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