All About Cancer Rising Sign- Cancer Ascendant Traits and Characteristics


Hey Everyone!

So today we will discuss the fourth in the series- Cancer Ascendant. Cancer is the cardinal sign and is one of the Water Elemental signs among Scorpio and Pisces. This sign is ruled by the soft Moon. So let's begin with the details.


As the ascendant is ruled by Moon, these people can be easily noticed amongst the crowd with a typical round, full, charming and bright-eyed face. They have a delicate and wavy hair texture. Their eyes are capturing and deep with prominent brows and soft gaze. They have broad chest regions with females having beautifully sculpted breasts and voluptuous curves to admire. They tend to gain weight quickly, especially in the hip region. Their body is stout with wide shoulders. The cheekbones are high and have a gentle comforting smile.


Since it's a water sign, needless to mention their highly emotionally intuitive personality. These are intense people with a lot of mood swings. They have innate nurturing nature which makes them the most comforting and motherly signs of all. It's the fourth sign of the zodiac which in turn makes these people highly fond of their homes ad families. They love to be surrounded by their loved ones and friends. But sometimes due to their over-protective and over-possessive nature, they land up clingy and difficult to be in relation with. These people are true friends indeed and ready to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. Very kind, compassionate, loyal and sensitive people with equally good memory retention. But due to this quality, they often tend to rake up old wounds. This consequently annoys their close ones. They are shy, timid and defensive in nature and just like a crab, they seek solace and resort to their domestic backdrop to get past the situation in particular.  


The Cancer ascendant is generally prone to stomach, intestinal and liver-associated ailments. They tend to suffer from indigestion and bloating generally. They have a fluid-retentive body in general which further gets aggravated by wrong food choices. They are very prone to anxiety and overthinking disorders. Easily get stressed out and slip into a state of depression due to the high complexity of their emotional and mental set-up. For Cancer ascendants, it's very essential for them to feel secure and happy to maintain their health. As it is very common for these people to get sick if they are emotionally tuned off. For them, emotional well-being is of utmost significance to feel healthy.


Okay so money is something, this ascendant is very fond of and knows exactly how to nurture it as well. These people build and grow their finances gradually. Highly methodical, logical and cautious about monetary matters. And this is how they love to invest it too. Their love for financial stability is for their families and loved ones primarily than to spend it on their own luxuries and lifestyle. They love investing their money in different kinds of schemes. They prefer to invest in fixed and immovable assets such as property and lands. They usually have significant bank balances and are likely to allocate their funds in different and separate accounts rather than all in one. With their endless efforts and tenacity, they are usually able to amass huge wealth for themselves and for their loved ones. They truly believe in living peaceful, calm and comfortable life than being flashy and pompous despite having tremendous wealth.
Career options that best suit them- Business related to Milk and by-products, Water-related business, photography, fine arts, creative fields, beauty products, healers, nurses, working in old age homes, social workers, Real estate, landscaping, etc. 


Generally, they are unconditional in any relationship. But it is also not uncommon to see these people keeping an account of how much they are getting in return in terms of love and security. As mentioned earlier, they tend to become very clingy and very moody. They have a tendency to hold on to their loved ones too tight so much so that the latter starts to feel suffocated. They are highly possessive and overprotective of their loved ones. This possessiveness can sometimes lead to jealousy due to their overthinking tendency. They are very close to their mothers in general and if they do not get that reciprocation from their mothers, it can lead to emotional turmoil for them. 
In marriage, they are very orthodox in their approach. They long for a partner who would get easily adapted to the way of living and traditions of their family. During the courtship phase, they keep a track of how much love and security their partner has to offer them. They marry the person only when they tick their required parameters in terms of security, be it love, emotional or even financial.


1. In relationships, try to loosen your grip over matters that don't require you to be overprotective about. Try to curb your possessiveness over your loved ones to let love blossom organically.

2. Sometimes you tend to ignore or let go of the faults of your family members which is quite natural for all of us. But try to take your stand wherever necessary as you are someone who often gets past easily even on crucial matters. Understand that supporting them on wrong deeds is of no use to them so discourage the same.

3. Watch over your food choices as you are a food indolent by nature. This not only aggravates weight gain but also leads to acidity, bloating and indigestion in your already fluid-retentive body.

4. As a cancer ascendant, your mother is of huge influence in your life. Whenever in doubt or in any unavoidable circumstances, try to seek her guidance as it would be of tremendous help, especially for you guys. Mark her words and respect her by all means. 

5. You often tend to trust the other person in your emotionally weak moments. This nature is very vulnerable and can be hurtful to your well-being. Try to gather yourself in such situations to calculate the momentum of the hour and act accordingly.

6. You really need to practice yoga and meditation for your emotional and mental health. Try to incorporate it into your lifestyle. If possible, try to perform it near any water body.

7. One can wear Pearl to extract positive results of this ascendant on any Monday of waxing Moon after consulting a learned astrologer.

That's it for the post.

See you soon.
