Your Personal Horoscope - Sun Sign and Ascendant Sign

With Cancer as your Sun Sign

The Sun is in the cardinal water sign of Cancer in your chart. With the Sun in this sign, you are very much someone who lives on your emotions. You are impressionable and sympathetic to others and able to listen patiently, but when your own feelings are hurt, you can be very moody and irritable. You tend to protect your feelings and emotions behind a hard exterior shell, just like a crab. Your family and roots are important to you, but you need to develop your own  individuality. You will have a strong parental instinct and will be protective and supportive to your children. If you have no children, this will probably be expressed in some other area of your life. You can be very tenacious when pursuing your goals, or holding on to a relationship or other situation, perhaps too long at times. If this tenacity is carried to extremes, you may have a tendency to hang on to real or even imagined hurts.

With Cancer as your Ascendant

The cardinal water sign of Cancer was rising at the time of your birth, indicating that you are sensitive  and  reserved in your approach to others, although you may have learned at an early age to protect your sensitivity behind the hard outer shell of the crab. You have a naturally caring and sympathetic nature,  and you like to take care of those who are close to you, you have an instinctive understanding of their emotional needs and you may see anyone or anything your protective circle as a threat. Cancer is a cardinal sign, so for anyone in that circle, you will give out great energy and bonhomie. That close circle may not be just family orientated, it can be vocationally focused too.    

This same emotional sensitivity makes you vulnerable, however, since not everybody has the same consideration for your feelings as you have for theirs. You will tend to hide any hurt or emotional pain behind a hard exterior, and to approach situations indirectly rather than risk a direct confrontation. You may have a tendency to cling to any hurt or slight, whether real or imagined, and you will need to learn to accept your sensitive emotional nature and channel it in some positive direction. You are natural worriers and the slightest ailment will cause great alarm within you, which may cause even more psychological problems.

Those with Cancerian ascendants love their food and are often formidable cooks, and within partnerships Cancerian ascendants show much ambition for their partners, and may push them to reach higher and achieve more and more.

Cancer is ruled by the Moon, as the ruler of your Ascendant, this planet is of particular importance in your chart.

How are the planets affecting you right now?

Right now Mercury is in your house of friends & groups so now’s the time to talk with people about cooperative efforts and joint projects. You might plan a group trip or a social event with people you know? These people can also help you solve problems or highlight matters for you to consider. Venus is passing through your house of career and creative projects will attract you now and anything where you can let your talents speak out. Jupiter opposes though this week and this may make you lazy and not want to work hard at the moment. Mars is hidden away in your house of solitude and this can lead to irritation as everything you do or try to achieve may be frustrated in some way. Keep your cool and try not to get too frustrated. You may have to be quite unselfish at work for an over demanding boss or co worker. Try to take their demands in good faith as the likelihood is that the work does need to be done. The New Moon in Gemini on the 25th May may encourages you to take a quieter more backseat role to the tasks and commitments that you have to do. Best not to make a big show of your actions now as you won’t feel truly comfortable if you do, try to remain modest and unassuming.
