All About Cancer Traits

The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decan’s energy since no planets will colour its expression. So the Cancer traits in the general section (of each Cancer decan) will speak for the Cancer rising meaning as there is no planetary filter. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences in the general section will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others.


Cancer Traits by Rising Sign Decan *

Cancer Decan 1 from 0º to 10º Cancer. Problems occur when a partner is turned into a pet project. These folk can so easily seduce their new lover into such comfort that figurative ‘muscles’ start to degenerate. The relationship starts off blissful as these loyal hunting dogs massage their chosen prey into total submission.

Cancer 1 rising loves to take care of course and whatever they do is so darn healing! Their magic touch soon becomes addictive. Eventually, of course, Cancer 1 rising burns out and starts to get crabby, and this is a rude awakening to the pampered lover. Cancer 1 can get a nasty backlash from their now ‘spoilt-rotten’ spouse. They then wonder why every relationship starts so sweetly and ends so bitterly. 

Cancer Decan 2 from 10º to 20º Cancer.  There is definitely a great story-telling ability here whether it be in song, film or writing. In relationships, this might also mean the telling of a lot of little white lies! Another possibility is turning a brief fling into a long drawn out melodrama (Must like the classic film “Brief Encounter”.)

This is Isis behaviour par excellence, piecing together narratives to try to figure out what lies deep within their partner’s psyche. Of course, this is a hugely romantic position, but it can also get completely hysterical when their rose-tinted affair shatters. This position is not the most realistic when it comes to relationships and they can often choose a ‘wrong un’ due to this decan’s innate naivety and passionate nature. 

Cancer Decan 3 from 20º to 30º Cancer.  These folk are tres-sophisticated and have very refined tastes. Therefore they really need to be in the high-income bracket in order to afford the luxuries they so crave. Cancer 3 rising will need to marry well since the life of a bohemian artist is not usually conducive to megabucks.

Unfortunately for some, like Van Gogh, they have to die first before their work sells for millions. This is the double-edged swords of the twins. As you can see from the fixed stars interpretations, this decan is not an easy sail. The wildly creative moods are very difficult for the subject to cope with unless they have a very patient and grounded partner.
