Scorpio and Cancer rising: its meaning
Scorpio and Cancer Ascendant in your horoscope
Is it possible to come close to you? To tell the truth, your Sun sign and your Ascendant sign are not easy to tame, this is the least that can be said... Are you afraid that your well-protected secrets are uncovered? Between the crab with its thick shell, and the scorpion, a discreet, anxious and worrisome insect, you have every reason to puzzle your entourage.
In most cases, when you are in society, you remain on the defensive as if you feared that people might endanger your inner world, which you find so wonderful and cosy, and in which you often seek refuge.
Your Scorpio Sun reveals its true nature only after people have crossed the threshold of your fortress. You were thought to be a bit dreamy and protective, but you show that you are at the same time even more enigmatic, magnetic, and cunning. You take it to heart to intensely commit yourself to your relationships, and you revel in extreme situations packed with thrills and dangers.
You are instinctive and possessive, and you must be careful that people do not feel smothered. Since your Sun and your Ascendant are both in Water signs, they deepen your intuition and your imagination, which has a definite impact on your behaviour. You often get lost in your inner labyrinths, and this trait strongly reinforces your mysterious charming power.

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