You've met a tough Capricorn that sometimes lets his feelings emerge? No, this isn’t normal but it could be that he is a Capricorn man with Cancer rising.

So, you’ve met a tough Capricorn man that sometimes lets his feelings emerge to the surface? No, this isn’t normal but it could be that he is a Capricorn man with Cancer rising, which is causing him to be more open. Here are some things you may want to know about this combination.

What is Ascendant or a Rising Sign?

Ascendant or a Rising Sign is the most important part of a natal chart of every person, even more important than the position of the Sun in your chart (your main Zodiac sign).

It represents the Zodiac sign in which the 1st house of your natal chart is positioned. It can be easily calculated on various websites, but you must know the exact time, date and place of birth of the person whose Ascendant you are calculating. Or, you can just ask them ????

A more open Capricorn Man

Capricorn men normally mean serious business. They can unwind and be fun when they want to be but otherwise, they’re all work and not much play. With the Cancer rising, they may be a bit different.

Cancer rising can help the Capricorn man open up and relax a bit more. He will also learn to be more honest with himself as far as what he’s feeling. He may reach out to other people as well.

Self-containment is typically what the Capricorn man is all about. However, with Cancer rising, he finds that it’s much more comforting to bond with others and talk things through.

The Cancer rising may make Capricorn a bit more gentle and easy going when he’s around friends and/or family. Instead of being a hard ass, he’ll relax and be more accepting of what is going on around him.

This combination tends to work hard to provide for themselves and their families if they decide to settle down. They want to be sure that the home they build will be something they can love for many years down the road.

Relationships with Capricorn/Cancer rising

This is the rare version of Capricorn that you may be very drawn to. He’ll be the type that will actually talk to you about some of what he’s feeling. He may still keep some things under wraps but he’ll be more open than other Capricorn men.

This guy will be more likely to wear his heart on his sleeve instead of keeping it behind a locked cabinet door. The Cancer rising will make him more emotionally equipped to deal with love, sadness, and other feelings he’d normally hide.

He can be impatient at times thanks to the Cancer rising but if he lets his Capricorn side take the lead, he’ll remember that things take time to form. He’ll remember he needs to live for the now rather than worry about tomorrow.

If you EVER see a Capricorn shed a tear, he’s either a Cancer rising or Pisces rising. No other Capricorn ever sheds a tear unless they are in intense physical pain. They take it as it comes and suck it up.

However when the Cancer rising takes over, it will make him face his feelings and deal with the pain he may feel, which can cause him to cry. It will still take a large amount of emotional turmoil for him to get there but he can.

In my life, I’ve witnessed one of these rare guys shed tears in front of me. He was discussing his child whom the mother would never let him see for the rest of his life. THAT type of emotional pain is the type I’m referring to.

So when he gets involved in a relationship or is dating someone, he’ll be more open to feelings and what they can bring to him. It will also likely make him a bit more intuitive about the person’s intentions.

He will avoid heartbreak by weeding out the ladies that are likely to hurt him in the long run. He can and will detect lies. Capricorn/Cancer rising man wants a woman who has staying power and loves him for who he is.

Overcoming Adversity

The Capricorn/Cancer rising man may come across some rather confusing times in his life. He’s a tough cookie but the Cancer rising can at times make him a bit soft and vulnerable.

However, no matter what the situation happens to be, he will have the ability to overcome just about anything. The older he gets, the more refined he becomes. He learns how to deal with his heart and logic together.

In his later years, he’ll be amazingly dedicated, caring, giving, and the type of partner you’ll really want to have in your corner. His life duties will become very clear and in perspective.

Once he settles down with the right person, he’ll be all about building a life with that partner. He will undoubtedly want a family with his partner as well. This will become his number one priority in life.

His career/job will be important in terms of making sure he’s bringing enough income to the table to ensure his family’s security for the future. He wants them to have the very best.

While his feelings may shift back and forth with being strong and being vulnerable, he can take his knowledge and find the balance he needs to succeed in his endeavors.

Romantic Happenings

This breed of Capricorn will be very romantic when he’s feeling passionate. He’s very good at it and will make sure his partner feels the passion brewing from within him.

This combination secretly wants to be coupled and wants to have that deep lasting connection with his partner. He wants someone who will be his best friend, confidant, and lover.

He’s willing to shower his lady love with plenty of affection and tenderness. Capricorn secretly always wants this but the Cancer rising will help bring this to the surface and help it along.

Cancer rising is very helpful for Capricorn to become a more well-rounded person. He’ll be strong when he needs to be but he’ll also be soft where he needs to. He’ll no doubt make an incredible mate and father for your future children.

Lucky is the woman that finds herself a Capricorn man with Cancer rising. She’ll have the best of both worlds. Even when he’s conflicted, he’ll still find a way through to be what he needs to be.
