Being an Aries Sun Cancer Rising Is a Challenge for Your Outer Personality and a New Identity!

The Aries/Cancer Identity Gives Energy and Emotional Maturity. Sharing "Cardinality" gives balance.


OK. There are 12 basic Sun Signs, and they are clustered around your 24 hour day. The planets Mercury, Venus, (Earth), Mars, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto. As the planets move they take their positions around the circle. When you are born, you are tagged within the 30 day "sign". So, let's say you are an Aries.

When you awake, you catch the sun's morning rays, at sun set, the earth keeps spinning for its next turn ---- THE RISING. But as the earth keeps turning EACH 2 HOURS, a new sign "appears" at the EASTERN HORIZON. Babies are certainly born, ANY TIME.

My eldest was born in 1971 as a Virgo. He was born at 6:31 AM. SO, HIS RISING SIGN is VIRGO RISING.

My second was a darling girl --- a Cancer. She was born at 8:30 PM on a hot summer night. When Daddy picked her up and kissed her, what was on the Eastern Horizon? In the dark, right out there --- Aquarius. She had Aquarius rising.

Aries leaps at Life, but Cancer Rising Calms the Ram and gives a "Modicum of Mellow".


Aries and Cancer share being Cardinal. In the Quest for Personal Cohesion, this can be a real benefit.

Aries and Cancer aspects can share a kind of relationship, like natural "cousins" to bring unity to the Core Identity, bringing social, family and business success.

How can the Merging of Aries Ego and Cancer Outer Personality Make you More Effective?


Aries and Gemini are both in the Spring and Summer season! One would expect to see some complimentary qualities, but also some stark differences.


The RAM sits upon the end of winter. Having come to a screeching halt, the Vernal Equinox begins, the Ram, to say the least, is animated! To use a play on words. The creature --- YOU are RAMINATED. This is a "catchy" phrase, but it has an almost electrical way of making a person in love with PURSUIT.

Aries know what this means. But Cancer also is "project oriented". Since as an Aries, reading this article, are seeking a greater feeling for being more well rounded, the idea of Cancer Rising should be a calming "sedative" that is still, nevertheless extremely helpful.

Cancer is Number four in the Zodiac, and also shares the Cardinality of Aries. The cloud cloaked sun in late June and mid July hosts humanity's familial efforts and "getting down to business".

This is truly a contrast. As you are THIS INDIVIDUAL, you should ponder what this means. Your Ego is strong and forthright, but you can be a bit edgy and inadvertently ignore less vital individuals and sometimes interrupt too much.

Now, envision the Outer Personality of Cancer. It can make a difference for you. You are blessed with the Cancerian Calm that gentles the waters of the Aries Rushing Rapids. The oceanic quietude of the the personality in Cancer helps you to plot and plan and execute, like only Cancer can, and still benefit from the Aries push. At a party or a meeting, you can use your Cancer Rising to host events, not just talk through them. A typical mothering aspect is actually just right for a social setting, or multiple person event. You can afford to drop the Aries "razmatazz" at a "boozie" party and adopt the manner of the person who is caring about how the refreshments are distributed.

When I say use a "mothering side" to your personality", I mean in contrast to the powerful Aries. That's why this is such an effective combination. Balancing Aries Ego at parties and lunches will give you the tools you need. Cancer Rising is right there within you to bring concern, familial care and the almost doting way that the Cancer cares.


FROM THESE TWO descriptions, you will see how they are similar, but counterbalancing, harmonious and counterbalancing. In the end, these "New Identity" articles that I have outlined are really up to you. IF THIS SPURS YOUR consciousness and moves you to see yourself in a larger, more expansive design, then it is the mastery of your mind, your hopes and your outlook.

As you think about your being, another word might be "your act". And I use that phrase with delicacy, you should see the ego and personality as a beautifully drawn portrait of your growing and maturing self. See the "callout" about how to help yourself grow and mature.
