Features of Ascendants of Cancer
If a person has Cancer rising, they are very sensitive to emotional signals from other people. They have extraordinary insight into human motivation. There is a reserve about them that is sometimes difficult to penetrate, but underneath is a warm, affectionate, loving and giving nature. They are adaptable to different kinds of people even though they are not liable to make instant friendships. It takes a while for them to let some-one get really close.
Cancer-Rising people tend to moodiness, and others may not always find them in a receptive frame of mind
. Sometimes they can be crabby and impatient and exhibit a snappish temper. They are touchy, and others have to be careful of what they say lest they hurt their feelings. Their sensitivities are so heightened that they sometimes take offense where none was intended.
Ascendants of Cancer possess great imagination and awareness. Many Cancer Ascendants are extraor-dinarily gifted as writers, poets
. Because they are so tuned in to the nuances of other peoples motivations, they are able to absorb what others are feeling and thinking. They pick up opinions, thoughts, facts from all around them and, being very clever and practical, they are able to put all this information to work for them. Cancer Ascendants are also clever with money, prudent and cautious, and have a native shrewdness in business. They know how to make wise investments and where to get the best value.
Cancer-Rising people wont hog the spotlight, but on the other hand they want public recognition for their talents. With Cancer rising, acclaim and applause can be hard to come by, so they tend to have a way of feeling sorry for themself. As a Cancer Ascendant, they have obstacles in their path, especially when young.
If an individual has Cancer rising, they are likely to have a round expressive face, pale luminous eyes, slender arms and legs and a rolling gait to their walk. Their body may be thickset through the middle, and they are prone toward putting on weight as they get older.
The Moon, which rules Cancer, is very prominent in their horoscope. The influence of the Moon bestows kindness, imagination, sympathy, deep emotion, an ability to cherish and protect, a retentive memory. It also encourages laziness, inconstancy, restlessness, passivity and untidiness.
