Cancer Ascendant natives have caring, sympathetic personalities. It is often difficult for others to determine how vulnerable, determined or strong they really are. They will not rush into revealing their true goals until they have acceptable level of self-confidence. Many of them prefer to marry late in life, often to older or more mature partners.
I have a Cancer rising also. Yes, I feel energies all the time, too. I feel like a sponge picking up on everyone’s emotions. I get composite emotional energy as soon as I walk into a room of people, too. Sometimes it is good to be sensitive like that, but sometimes it is overwhelming. I like being in touch with my emotions and those around me, but it can be unsettling when feelings fluctuate so often. The thing about my Cancer rising is that it is inconjunct in sign to my Sag sun and Sag Mercury so I often feel held back from expressing my true nature. Your sun being in Virgo is sextile in sign to the Cancer rising, so you are probably more comfortable than I am with this rising sign. by Juanita
I’m a Cancer and I can read my conscious like it’s being replayed back to me. I’m a deep thinker, analyzing every situation and trying to find meaning of why someone said the simplest thing. I get to lost in my own thoughts and believe them, even if they aren’t true. It’s weird though because of this, I took shrooms and hallucinated to my own thoughts. They were being played to me like a giant movie screen and I can see them happening. It was really cool. by Krista Marie
If you have Cancer rising, you are very sensitive to emotional signals from other people. You have extra ordinary insight into human motivation. There is a reserve about you that is sometimes difficult to penetrate, but underneath is a warm, affectionate, loving, and giving nature. You are adaptable to different kinds of people even though you are not liable to make instant friendships. It take a while for you to let someone get really close.
