The Horns Can Be Quite Prominent. The Capricorn Can Mean Business!


A Capricorn Sun With a Cancer Rising. You Can Merge Your "Duo" Ego and Public Personalities. You Can Use This New Identity.

Capricorn and Cancer Are Different in Fundamental Ways, But They Have Similarities. When Capricorn is the Ego, and Cancer is the "Ascendant" (Rising) the both can join together in an "Effective Partnership", with the Ego in control, but the Ascendant "shaking the hands" of the public. Capricorn is perhaps the most grim; so it's well fitted to be "in control". Cancer is one busy personality and has a non-stop relentlessness. Capricorn is "Earth"; not given to flights of fancy, and being "Cardinal", Cap believes in action. However Cancer is also "Cardinal", giving you "double action" power. However, Cancer is Water, and not Earth, like Capricorn. This balances you out and takes away Capricorn's hard edge!

Capricorn and Cancer Blend Mixed Talents Being a Capricorn Sun - Cancer (Ascendant) - Rising Is a Challenge, But One that can bring Goal Fulfillment. Your Outer Personality and a New Merged Identity! Two dominant leaders - the Smart Goat on a Cliff and the Hard Working - Family Oriented Cancer should Respect Each Other. (These are two serious minded entities). These forces work within you as a Personality Partnership, You should not fight for Dominance, but rather split your Inner Capricorn Ego, and your Public Crab/Moon Self.

Cardinality Needs To Be Offset! Earth and Water Can Counter Balance; especially with ACTION-BASED Cardinality







How to Blend the "Crab/Moon" and The Goat With "Funny Legs"

(Ancient Astrologers Claimed that the Cap's Legs Were Octopus-like. Thus Attributing an Oceanic Origin.)

It's allowed to analyze how to "break yourself down" into the most harmonious and cooperative parts, even if the "TWO OF YOU" are aggressive and determined. So, lets look at the challenge. JUST WHAT IS A RISING SIGN? Its NOT just where the Sun is...Its also the Hour of Your Birth...Combined with Your Sun Sign.

There are 12 RISING Sign Possibilities, and they are the signs acting in a specific role

OK. There are 12 basic Sun Signs, and they are clustered around your 24 hour day. When you are born, you are "TAGGED" within that 30 day "sign". So, let's say you are a Capricorn. When you awake, you catch the sun's morning rays - that's THE RISING. But as the earth keeps turning EACH 2 HOURS, a new sign "appears" at the EASTERN HORIZON.


Capricorn The Goat sits upon the Cliff in the winter; seeing below, taking a kind of all deep analysis. Knowing much, analyzing multiple angles, planning, organizing and only "appearing heartless"; they bring understanding to their lives and those of their loved ones. They are devisers of "master plans"; because they see far and wide, they also bring a knowledge of the oceanic and the terrestrial. They do have an all encompassing sense that the other 11 don't really have.

Cancer (Ascendant) RISING

Cancer positioned as a Rising sign gives you an outer self that can make you appear "Intense, but Sociable". Both of these appear to come on "too strong". Sometimes it can appear that NATURE TENDS TO OVER EQUIP. This combination can appear to be over-equipped, but we have not come close to discovering how this can work - this Divine Given Horsepower in action. Our Divine Horsepower, when blended in this kind of "Merged Duality" gives your Human Consciousness greater flexibility. Often we do lose control when we have to "reign ourselves" in.

Your Cancer Rising will inevitably have to call for a "self control" button, unless the Ego of the Capricorn maintains Captain's Control. This can end up being a great challenge. When we are called to mellow out, just a bit, and declare that Outer Public Cancer should cover complications with a less tense hand than he would usually have, maybe the TWO of you, as ONE could, be the Real Winner you want to be! Moderate the two of you and you might truly have a "Merged Self" that ends up meeting working and sociable projects.

Remember -- Capricorn and Cancer Won't Relax if you just "Tell them to". Saying "Just RELAX" won't work! There will be times when the busy crab will try to push itself to gather food on the beach and check the tides and its loved ones into the home. Capricorn's planning and determination may tend to push less than the Cancer. These struggles might be good or bad. But accomplishment can still be the goal.

The Goal of the Divine

Just What is the Divine Doing?

WHAT IS THE DIVINE DOING? Making you a more specific, more clearly specialized individual. Imagine a CIRCUS WHEEL. On a given day the planets are in their position in one of the 12 seats. when you are born, at that moment, the Circus Wheel STOPS. THERE! RIGHT THEN IN THAT MOMENT, TAKE A "SELFIE" IN YOUR MIND'S EYE! YOUR SPECIFIC PUBLIC IDENTITY FOR THIS LIFE TIME HAS BEEN EMBLAZONED IN THE HEAVENS.

Your chart has been set! The Ascendant is declared. Your PUBLIC personality has been set. Where is the Rising Sign at the Circus Wheel? The Rising Sign has to be determined. At the 1st House, you "mathematically" turn the Circus Wheel, and the placing of that Rising Sign determines WHAT HOUSE receives the energy, significance, (aspects) of that placement. If you were born at midnight, your Rising Sign is placed on that Eastern Horizon.

Cancer Works Oceanic Tides, But Does So From The Shore.
