The "mother of the zodiac" Cancers are renowned for their nurturing and caring nature.

Think of these signs as that one friend who lives for hosting game or movie nights and makes all the snacks from scratch, ensuring everyone's favorite beverage is on deck and offering seconds with no hang-ups.

A water sign, the crab is emotionally intelligent and capable of not only listening to whatever issue you may have, but also smart enough to help you come up with a solution that is practical and fair to you.

When they're not taking care of home, these signs are very creative, which means they can make even the most dull of situations or activities fun.

So, how does this affect you when your ascendant — the sign responsible for how people perceive you — falls in Cancer? We tapped Psychic Winston, premier astrologist at California Psychics, to give us the rundown on everything you need to know about the Cancer rising sign.

What are the personality traits of a Cancer rising sign?

"Cancer risings are usually going to be very nurturing, especially when it comes to their families and their loved ones," says Winston. "They are very loyal, friendly and empathetic, especially once you gain their trust."

On the flip side, however, Cancer risings can come off as a bit temperamental. "They can have a bit of moodiness to them and they sometimes have moments where they succumb to the energy around them — good or bad."

What is the mindset of a Cancer rising sign?

When it comes to the Cancer rising mindset, two things are paramount: Nurture and protect. They want to make sure that their loved ones are being taken care of no matter what.

Those with their ascendant in Cancer are pretty big on loyalty as well. They’re very guarded with who they trust, but once you’ve gained their trust, you’ve got a friend for life.

What signs are most compatible with Cancer rising signs?

When it comes to creating chemistry, it seems these water signs like to keep things close.

"Cancer risings are the most compatible with the Pisces risings and the Scorpio risings," says Psychic Winston. "They blend well and have that kind of Yin-Yang dynamic — most especially with Scorpio!"

What signs are least compatible with Cancer rising signs?

On the other hand, Cancer risings simply don't gel well with the straight shooters, Aries and Capricorn risings. "It’s just not there," Psychic Winston explains.

"They’re very straightforward and Cancer isn’t. Aries and Capricorns can come across as a bit insensitive whereas Cancer risings need a little coddling."

How are Cancer rising signs in relationships?

Once they find their person, Cancer risings tend to lock in. "When it comes to relationships, they love with no bounds," Winston explains. "They pride themselves on the ability to love, to nurture, to protect no matter what. They are ride or die. They’ll go to the end of the line for you."

How are Cancer rising signs as friends?

That “ride or die” moniker bleeds into their friendships as well. These water signs are extremely loyal and would do anything for their friends.

"They want to make sure you know that if you need anything — whether it’s the shirt off their backs or the last dollar in their pocket — you got it," says Winston. "When they find a true friend, they’re going to do whatever they can to hold on to that."

How are Cancer rising signs in the workplace?

When it comes to the workplace, Cancer rising signs need to be challenged. They don’t like to be stagnant at work — physically or mentally. They need to be in constant movement in one way, shape or form.

They are excellent leaders, but at the same time, they also don’t have a problem being team players and following. Whatever they need to be, they’re going to be that.

How are Cancer rising signs as parents?

As parents, their nurturing qualities come out on full display. They want their kids to know and feel how much they are truly loved. Cancer Risings want to instill the qualities they possess into their kids as well.

"They’re going to be very protective of their children, but they don't necessarily want their kids to be like them," Psychic Winston explains.

They want their kids to understand the importance of taking care of their loved ones, being empathetic and keeping close ties, however, that caring nature will always want them to forge their own paths.
