Those having Cancer as their Rising sign tend to be perceived as someone who appears more mellow at first glance, the type who walks their path slowly, along the edge, until they reach their destination, with little fanfare. They tend to be very sensitive to the environment and can easily become restless, particularly in public. Their first instinct, when threatened or on unknown ground, is usually to protect themselves. When new situations arise, they may be a bit shy.
Primarily, they react to life with their heart, not their head. Their mood can rise and fall like the tides or the phases of the moon, needing greater discernment to control their feelings. They can also have their feelings hurt and take things personally more easily.
Memories often surface regardless of their will. And it is useless to refuse them, but rather they constantly reflect on what has been learned. When they perform such a process, they are generally able to perceive that they are better able to deal with losses, to value their origins, to develop empathy for others’ pain, and not to get hurt because of their sensitivity. Is it hard to be emotional in a cold world? Surely yes, but if you or others like you cease having such a trait, the world becomes even colder.
The history of the world, its traditions and its collective memory tend to be perceived with greater ease and agility. Caring for others, when requested, can always be an opportunity for donation. Natives with this rising sign can be more tolerant and even have a greater appreciation for such compassionate acts, feeling that they are able to donate some of their time to their friends, or children in an orphanage, or seniors in a nursing home, opening their arms and always being available to solace those in need, thus strengthening their welcoming energy.
Their temperament can be relatively unstable and subject to the conditions of the moon at various times. At first glance, their way of being is more laid-back, with tremendous adaptive power. There is a bit more discretion and independence in relationships. With the Moon as the ruler of Cancer, the need to be with other people, to protect and care for them, can be increased.
Security is fundamental
Such rising configuration is also indicative of people committed and focused on quenching their ambitions. However, they can appear vulnerable, making it difficult for others to see how determined or strong they can actually be. The first impression is one of peace-of-mind. They tend to be more cautious and hesitant to reveal their true goals until they are sure of success. In fact, their more highly emotional commitment can make them work even harder toward their desires.
They might need a bit more recognition, as they are people who are more influenced to make a decision that often escapes their own interest in order to please someone or have some recognition and status in some way. Since Capricorn is in the Descendant position, they usually seek structure and security in their partner and in their relationships. They work best when their partner demonstrates strength, security and emotional stability, and many may prefer their relationship to have well-defined rules. Security is a basic need that guides other actions in life, and they can be people willing to give up some personal freedom to obtain it.
Whenever they go on a trip, they feel that they need the security of home when they return, knowing that there’s this place where they actually belong, and they are also more attached to family or to those they consider sufficiently close and dear. Since they tend to feel more content in their family environment, the home tends to be a great refuge, and therefore it must be a pleasurable place. There’s no need for sophistication, but it should be cozy and feel safe. There’s also a primary tendency to spend only what one can, without overindulging.
They generally care about others, and they tend to see things in a more empathic way, suggesting a greater need to care – and to be cared for. In fact, if they don’t feel welcomed, their happiness may dwindle.
Sometimes their sweet disposition can be mistaken for innocence, although this is not the case. Usually, their image gives the impression that they are simple individuals, which makes them more accessible. However, depending on the other positions on the map, some of them can become quite closed.
They tend not to be able to relate superficially; they need to feel secure in relationships so they can vent their feelings. They may always be mindful as to the needs of others, but at the same time, they expect reciprocity regarding affection. The primary inner guidance is to do everything in order to live in a harmonious environment, always striving for everyone’s well-being.
