Hello, fellow cancer risings!

Hey! I'm paula, completely into astrology... I've been 'studying' it for a year now, but i'm getting serious with it since last 2 weeks...
I find astrology fascinating and beautiful and i wake up in the morning and im excited to keep studying it!
I have a personal question though... My ascendant is in cancer, and it provides me with a great deal of anxiety/shyness/awkwardness/ insability to be the center of attention or to show any of my qualities in groups, does anyone struggle with this? anything that can help overcoming it/soothing it? This side of me only shows in certain situations, in some others im the most confident and laidback person...
Well, looking forward to spend ages learning about astrology with you guys!
I'll also post the web from where i'm learning everything, wich is wonderful and includes several links to 'ancient' astrology books full of secret wisdom!

Hey, hello and welcome paulademourl


you'll enjoy the FREE online resource on PLANETS - for example
SUN
http://www.skyscript.co.uk/sun.html

and also
SIGNS
e.g.
SAGITTARIUS
http://www.skyscript.co.uk/sagittarius.html


HOUSES
such as:
1st House
http://www.skyscript.co.uk/temples/h1.html


and then
with that information
in mind
then the basics are that:



A PLANET acts


A HOUSE shows the area of life
in which the planet acts


as well as
how strongly the planet can act







and


A SIGN shows the quality of the planet's expression.






so then

working from that idea
one can build on it



by
i.e.

- selecting a natal planet
studying the house location of the natal planet
Assessing how comfortable the natal planet is in that natal sign
Checking what the natal planet rules in the natal chart

To do so
an understanding of planetary dignity and debility

is useful
for assessing how comfortable a planet is in a particular sign



HOW TO READ DIGNITIES WITH TABLE http://www.skyscript.co.uk/dig2.html


Fixed Stars add useful detail

Tens of hundreds of millions of people
all with different ascendants

have a similar experience of sometimes being shy, sometimes confident
People are shy and/or confident for different reasons

but
their natal charts are all different

that's because astrological chart reading is a complex exercise
that cannot be achieved in seconds
by simply drawing conclusions based on ascendant sign

Re: Hello, fellow cancer risings!

Welcome to the forum

Something to take into account is the house and sign your moon is placed in. Since you are a cancer ascendant - then Moon is the ruler of your chart. And aspects to it, the sign it falls in and the house it is in are important key factors in your overall personality as well as appearance.

Re: Hello, fellow cancer risings!

Since your ascendant is Cancer then Moon is ascendant ruler

but
your Moon is not necessarily the chart ruler


because
it's a matter of opinion in astrology regarding the ruler of the chart
as time passes and you investigate, learn, study and test techniques
you decide for yourself

traditionally then, the ruler of the chart is the strongest planet
or
Almutem Figuris which is an old doctrine
where one planet according to certain calculations applied
receives the honors to be the Ruler or Lord of the Chart.

The word 'Almutes' is an Arabian word which means 'Winner'.

because
the planet is the Winner of all the 'life giving' places.

Or
the places which are most important in the natal chart

In modern astrology, the 'chart ruler' of cancer rising is - Moon. I am not a traditionalist and don't claim to use traditionalist methods.

Quite. And it is useful for beginners to be aware that there are different schools of Astrology
each with its own methodology

also
even within the various schools of astrological methodology
astrologers frequently disagree regarding interpretation of specific factors

that is not unusual and is completely acceptable
because no one is either right or wrong
quite simply
there are many varying astrological opinions
and that is why I highlighted the importance of
investigating for oneself
by experimenting with the many and various astrological techniques
because only by studying and testing those varying techniques for oneself
can an individual astrologer then decide on a preferred methodology

For example our dr. farr began studying astrology at the age of twelve
and has accumulated more than fifty years of astrological knowledge and experience
which includes an encyclopaedic knowledge of the developmental history of astrology
which he then uses in a combination of methodologies from Vedic Ancient, Modern AND Traditional astrologies
and thus dr. farr describes himself as an ECLECTIC astrologer

Yes, I am in agreement with that.

But singling out something I brought into the conversation, to debate over can come across as not very polite. You know what I mean, it's been the same with the Pluto topics.
An alternative approach - you could just bring your own Methodology into the conversation about different techniques you use for determining ruler of the chart and just don't quote material of forum members methodologies who you are in disagreement with. So it becomes a conversation for learning, not a debate.

We are all learners - astrology is a never-ending journey of astrological discovery
and in order to fully learn and explore
we need to check as many methodologies as possible
and so after checking my comments
do check other methodologies also
because no astrologer is using the right or wrong technique
we all simply have our own individual astrological opinions
and as time passes paulademourl you shall develop your own preferred methodology
