Cancer Rising Will Add Strong Emotions to the Virgo


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.

What is the Divine Doing?

WHAT IS THE DIVINE DOING? Making you a more specific, more clearly specialized individual. It is the HOUR of your birth that determines where your "Mars in Leo" (as an example) is to be placed ----- in the 12th house the 8th house or the 4th house.

What are the HOUSES? There are 12 houses. Imagine 12 aspects of life -- Home Health, Travel, Career, Hopes. I won't list all 12 here.

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.


Where is the Rising Sign at the Circus Wheel? As a baby, you don't know. A Doctor or a Parent has to tell you later in your life, OR IT IS DOCUMENTED.

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. Your "Mars in Cancer" goes to the right house.

So, you see how your individuality AND your chart gets determined by your Rising Sign.

In doing interpretations for people I have always used this TWO LENSES approach. Think of the Sun and Rising as your INNER and OUTER, your PRIVATE and PUBLIC self


Elements of these are not that contradictory, but could be said to present interesting challenges. But that's what makes you more fascinating. Before this new approach, you might say to yourself. "These "fight" each other, but they just make you more complex.

SEEING YOURSELF THROUGH TWO LENSES. Humanity has been doing this for all of our stages of maturation. When we go to parties or church, we notice that people aren't the same as we see them in other settings. Some are more exuberant. Some people are extra quiet at occasions. As we mature, we see that people have INTERIOR selves and EXTERIOR selves...but they are connected.

Virgo is an Earth Sign. Cancer is a Water Sign.

This makes the Virgo stable but understanding and flexible in the qualities that they bring to relationships. Cancer's effect at a party or social would add a warmer approach-ability and willing engagement to the Virgo. Virgo's mutability is most interesting because they have tolerance and patience; their groundedness makes them almost hypercritical. but it's because they're naive. The way the watery cancer softens the criticism, allows the Virgo to be more ready with a handshake or a hug.

Cancer's familial sociability and easy engagement makes Virgo, more of a leader and complex personality. This has to be seen as a BENEFIT to the dual lens way of seeing yourself. Bringing a more emotional quality to your outer self will take the "edge" off of what can be termed Virgo "abrasiveness".

Though most preoccupied with the world as they see it, The Virgo is helped by Cancer Rising. It might help the Virgin to see the seriousness and complexity of relationships. Intuition is strong in the Cancer Rising.

It's Not Really a Warning; It's Just a Complexity.

There are "constant comments" that arise from a Virgo. And they see themselves as being always HELPFUL. Others (loved ones, family and friends) nod to each other as the Virgo goes on and on. In their minds, they are just giving friendly needed advice. Few choose to fight them. They have such nice innocent smiles.

Cancer can talk "plenty good". But the Crab comes out from the heart. Virgo comes from the head. So this is a good balance. However, there are two words that can arise: CRITICISM (Virgo) and COMPLAINT. (Cancer).

A favorite quote from the Bible is "Every man does what is right in his own eyes". (Judges 17:6). When people act in daily life, they speak from their own sense of "rightness". This is especially true of these two signs. They are not fighters, as much as they are FIXERS. So out of your nobility, you will be wanting to fix things. You heart will often be right, but you can be seen to be making negative or mood driven comments. Results can be more complicated than they need to be. You are a good-hearted person. Be sure to keep control of your comments; especially in social situations, so that your goodness and kind nature can shine through.

Let the Virgo / Allow the Cancer

Let the Inner side of you, be the Clear Virgo.

Allow the Cancer to Express its Family Nature.

Let the Virgo Desire to Correct others' paths, also apply to you.

Allow your Cancer to accept new people into your Club
