Cancer Ascendant

Traits - Cancer Ascendant

People born in Cancer Ascendant are some of the most gentle, compassionate, loving, caring and nurturing people on earth. They make the best parents, thanks to their protective instincts. There is an air of familiarity about them. They don’t seek attention, rather they come in a quite unassuming way and blend in the environment. Since they are so emotional and sensitive to what is happening around them, they tend to get affected more than average. Cancer is a water sign under the strong influence of Moon, so Cancer natives tend to be crabby in nature. Mood swings are common with these individuals. They end to touch extremes such as laughter and despair. This is because Moon changes its position quickly and it is the ruling planet of Cancer.
