Cancer Rising

cancer-karmic-ascendantCancer Rising – General

Whether you are male or female, you carry the qualities of and in some way embody the archetype of the mother. You will find that you attract people who need care, understanding and encouragement. Devotion and maintaining emotional soul-connections to life is the heart of your approach to living. You are very sympathetic in both the sense that you feel for others and also in the sense of “sympathetic resonance”. Your own feelings and moods will often reflect the dominant feeling tone in your environment. You absorb the atmosphere around you and thrive in surroundings that are home-like, personal, supportive, and cooperative.

When out of balance you are hypersensitive to hurts and slights, are prone to extreme moodiness, worry, and self-pity, and/or feel like an insatiable needy child yourself. Self-nurturing and self-responsibility are thus extremely important for you to develop in order to bring out your best.

Your ruling planet is the Moon. You probably felt a strong identification with the description of your Moon’s placement as you read the first section. This is because in your case the Moon not only reflects something about your past and inherited tendencies, but also colors your entire way of relating to the world now. It describes an important aspect of your soul’s function.

Cancer Rising and Moon in Aries

Your Aries Moon suggests that you are self-reliant and/or that you are really not all that comfortable taking care of others. You may be somewhat split between your devotion to family, home, or dependents versus your allegiance to your own life. There may be a slight reluctance in your defense of home, family, or “your own”. At best, you blend sensitivity and loving devotion with action and strength. You could be a strong advocate for children, women, the family or the feminine.

Cancer Rising and Moon in Taurus

Your Moon in Taurus suggests that you are very comfortable providing solace and support to others, because you have a solid inner foundation. You draw your strength from flowing with the natural cycles and rhythms of the earth. When out of balance and out of contact with the land and natural forces, you become overly attached to security in the form of money or trying to ensure that nothing ever changes in your small part of the world. Being peaceful is an important aspect of your contribution to life.

Cancer Rising and Moon in Gemini

Your Gemini Moon suggests that you operate both from your feelings and instincts and your mind. At times you may use your wit to cover your vulnerability and softness, or be over influenced emotionally by others’ words and ideas. Learning to articulate your own inner experience, and helping others to do the same, would be important. You could be a writing teacher, a devoted correspondent or diarist, or a counselor or consultant. Any of these would be an expression of your natural soul function.

Cancer Rising and Moon in Cancer

Your Moon is in Cancer as well, suggesting that deep sentiment, soulfulness, and the honoring of ancient roots and traditions is an important part of your contribution to life. Water and music play important roles in your life also. Because of your strong pull toward the past, you need to find ways for the past to nurture, strengthen, and add to your present life, rather than simply being nostalgic, becoming addicted to familiar or old ways, or trying to find a way back to the security of the womb. Dependency and/or co-dependency is a MAJOR issue for you.

Cancer Rising and Moon in Leo

Your Moon in Leo suggests that your sympathetic and nurturing qualities are infused with warmth, generous feeling and a strong sense of personal pride in the ones in your care.

Cancer Rising and Moon in Virgo

Your Moon in Virgo suggests that your caring is channeled into practical service, nursing, attending to the immediate practical or physical needs of people. You are sensitive and devoted, but perhaps not very demonstrative in ways that others recognize as tenderness or love. Serving families, mothers, or children in some way is an important way for you to fulfill your soul function.

Cancer Rising and Moon in Libra

Your Moon in Libra suggests that you were “born to be mild” and a peacemaker. You also carry a deep feeling for beauty and part of your function in the world is to bring graciousness, sweetness and beauty into it. The tendency to avert or avoid conflict can be a strength or a deficit.

Cancer Rising and Moon in Scorpio

Your Moon in Scorpio suggests that, though you may appear mild and motherly or soft, you can be truly ferocious in your defense of anyone or anything you care about, especially those who depend upon you. You are the Mother Tiger, when threatened. Deep sentiment and compassion for the suffering color everything for you. Words may be difficult or not at all important to you. What matters is soul, mystery and allegiances of the heart.

Cancer Rising and Moon in Sagittarius

Your Moon in Sagittarius suggests that your psychic and intuitional senses are very open and active. (Also, you have much more sensitivity to others’ troubles than the average Moon in Sagittarius person. You are not as relentlessly upbeat and jolly, not such a party animal, and not as outgoing). Your need for freedom may conflict with your desire for security or your devotion to your children and family’s needs.

Cancer Rising and Moon in Capricorn

Your Moon in Capricorn suggests that an emotional toughness and realism underlie your gentle exterior. The need to protect, to conserve, to uphold the family and to secure a solid base for your life colors much of what you do. Order and respect for tradition and heritage are an important aspect of your way of nurturing.

Cancer Rising and Moon in Aquarius

Your Aquarius Moon suggests your devotional energies and protective care are not only for your own immediate family, but also for a wider community.

Your gift is to envision creative alternatives and to be an instrument of change regarding how we nurture one another. You could be politically or socially active in changing the school system, health care or other arenas where nurture and care is administered. The rising of the feminine in our times is an important theme in your life.

Your challenge is to somehow integrate this into your life in a balanced way. At times you may be confused as to where your true allegiance lies: with your family circle or with the broader world. People outside your family may see you as full of empathy and sensitive to their concerns, while your own family may feel from you a peculiar iciness and detachment at times, as if you wanted nothing to do with them or their needs. It is probably true that you do not want to care for them solely and that is where creative solutions and alternatives come in! Have some compassion for yourself. It is quite a challenge to answer your deep need to be free, to live life on your own terms, and to make a significant contribution to the human race or the planet, while at the same time nurturing family and lasting intimacy in your life.

Cancer Rising and Moon in Pisces

Your Moon in Pisces expands your empathy and devotion to include not just your own immediate family, but all of life. You are a spiritual “mother” to many.
