If your answer is, “Yes”, this article may give you some good hints about the basic traits of your personality as well as some good understanding about the role and nature of different planets for your horoscope.
The term “horoscope” is commonly used in wide variety; and, over here I am referring to your rising sign and its general features. A vedic horoscope comprises your natal birth chart, divisional charts, dasa (planetary periods) and some other aspects of astrology reading like planetary strength, transit etc. The planetary disposition at a specific time, on specific date and at specific place is worked out to generate your horoscope. Thereafter, the astrology consultation is provided after detailed analysis of your horoscope.
The rising sign of your personal horoscope is the center point around which all the planets operate. Whether it is career astrology, marriage astrology or financial astrology – the nature of the zodiac sign falling in first house of your natal birth chart will always have a reasonable say in this regard. Some of the basic features and general traits of people born under Cancer ascendant are mentioned below.
Cancer Ascendant (Karka Lagna): If you are born in Cancer Ascendant; you are likely to be of average height, thick neck, oval or round mouth and mediocre physique. The disposition of the lagna lord Moon in watery zodiac sign (specifically Scorpio or Pisces) may give a bit plumpy physique. And, if at the same time, the Lagna is also occupied by Jupiter or Venus; and devoid of Saturn or Mars influence, you may be fat too. The influence of Saturn and/or Mercury on first house may give you a tall and lean physique. If Mars is placed in first house of your lagna chart, it may cause you to be short stature and short tempered in nature.
Cancer is a Watery zodiac sign; therefore, usually Cancer Ascendant people are friendly, romantic, lusty, imaginative and wandering. You may be fond of collection of antiques, precious items, and/or musical instruments. You may also be luxurious, having royal taste, food loving and having clean habits. Sometimes, you may love to show off; and may like to impress others with your attitude and thinking. You may also be fond of journeys, have special interest in music and may like to act like guardian within close relationships. You may also be religious and extremely dedicated to your mentor, teacher and elders. Sometimes, you may act in a very practical way, setting aside all the norms and regulations. You may also be restless and of volatile mind. You may tend to take decisions and initiatives, merely on the basis of emotions and hunches. These positive results may be there if Moon is well placed in your vedic astrology birth chart; and the lagna is devoid of any malefic influences.
Weak and afflicted Moon and/or inauspicious planetary influences on the first house (specifically of Saturn and Ketu) may cause you to be short tempered, lazy and egoistic in nature. You may suffer from severe physical pains and injuries; and your relationships may not be healthy. You may have negative attitude and fault finding tendency. Severe affliction of Saturn on Moon may also result in anxiety and depression. You may have fear of enemies, suffer from instability in your family and professional matters and may also have short life span.
Mars is the best planet for your horoscope as it rules over fifth and tenth houses and acts as a Yogakaraka planet. A well placed and strong Mars may bless you with high positions and reputed social status. The union of Mars with Jupiter is most auspicious and may bless you with happiness, success, luxury and high social status in life. It may also bless you with easy success in life and good support of family.
Mercury and Venus are not much auspicious; specifically when they are weak or badly placed. A badly disposed Mercury in your horoscope may cause you to struggle extensively in your life; as well as lack of support from friends, relatives and co-borns. Weak and afflicted Venus may deny you from happiness in married life; lack of domestic peace and financial problems. The union of the Mercury with Sun may also generate financial crunches and you may be extravagant in nature. However, if such union (Sun + Mercury) is under aspect of Jupiter and/or Moon; there may be positive results pertaining to finance and profession.
Union of Mars with Venus generates a Raj Yoga; however, the potency of the Raj Yoga will depend a lot upon the nature of your house and zodiac sign occupied by these planets. If these two planets (viz. Mars and Venus ) are united in Kendra or Trikona houses and devoid of any malefic influence; it may bless you with good riches, high position and successful life. Union of the Sun with Jupiter and/or Mars is also very auspicious; required these planets (Mars or Jupiter) are not becoming combust and devoid of malefic planetary influences.
The best part of being born in Cancer Ascendant is being a dependable and trustworthy personality, specifically in family and close relationships. Until and unless, Mars and Moon are not severely damaged, Cancer Ascendant people are capable of taking and accepting their responsibilities in overall aspects of life. Another positive aspect is their strong will power, specifically if Moon and Jupiter are auspiciously disposed. Generally, you may be able to overcome and emerge victorious within difficult situations and are capable of dealing with your enemies and rivals quite effectively. You may be a good host and may like to celebrate occasionally.
The weak aspects of your personality are volatile mind, carelessness and sensitive stomach. You may tend to take risky decisions, purely based upon intuition and suffer failures and financial losses. You may also be restless and impatient in nature. Besides this, Cancer Ascendant people are comparatively more vulnerable to be exploited emotionally and may get trapped into unwarranted commitments and relationships.
Cautions to be exercised: If you are born in Cancer Ascendant; you should be extra careful about the following:
Health and Mood: The health and mood are usually quite sensitive for Cancer Ascendant people. You may experience sudden mood swings; thereby leading to hasty and/or wrong decision making. Your health may also cause routine obstructions. Your Lagna lord Moon, being a very fast moving planet, may keep you restless and anxious on frequent basis. You should keep good control on your food habits and try to remain under positive environment.
Selecting Profession: The professional satisfaction is usually lacking in Cancer Ascendant people; and they are comparatively more eager to have regular changes and developments in their professional matters. Therefore, you should be extra careful in this regard; and should select your profession after thorough consideration.
Social Relations: Cancer born people are quite vulnerable to be cheated or being misguided by mischievous people. Therefore, you should always remain quite cautious and alert in your social relationships. You should avoid taking others on their face value; and take fair amount of time to decide and enter into new relationships.
