Taurus and Cancer rising: its meaning
Taurus and Cancer Ascendant in your horoscope
At first glance, your Sun sign and your Ascendant sign are quite similar. They are both careful and keen to protect their interests.
With your Cancer Ascendant, you seem prompt to react whenever you do not want people to have a hold over you, and you quickly curl up in your shell in case of danger. This does not mean that you are timorous, but only that you need to feel self-assured before taking action. Indeed, once you are out of your cocoon, you are very tenacious and protective.
Your Taurus Sun, which defines your inner self, is also marked by the same enduring quality and the possessive facet as your Cancer Ascendant. You appreciate the warm and intimate ambiances which recall your childhood home.
You are sensual, constant, and perhaps a bit nostalgic, and you show your friends and relatives, or those whom you trust, your deep sense of hospitality, your affection, and your taste for comfort.

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