Leo rising has been great for my self esteem. I’ve always felt it was my destiny to be a leader/regal in a suburban kind of way, even in the face of crazy people trying to convince me otherwise. But when an older relative suggested that I was born 10 mins earlier than I had previously thought, I realised I could be Cancer Rising. Naturally I was devastated. No way am I pathetic, wimpy, sentimental, homey…(but maybe I am, and just in denial?). That was a year ago, and I am still trying to convince myself that I am truly Leo rising. Mystic, are there any other tricks to distinguish the rising Leos from the….gulp…alternative??
The Uncertain Cat
Dear Uncertain Cat,
Well the quick way to tell if you are Lion or Crab rising is that Leo Rising peeps resemble cats. Are you feline? Compulsively groomed? Get off on catnip? Crab Rising = excellent boobs or pectorals if you are male. And you would be more receptive than the classic Leo Rising, which is more of a “performance” aesthetic.
Also, Leo Rising loves to party & would be completely thrilled to receive an invite for a formal occasion requiring a new outfit. Whereas Crab Rising could crack up on the spot. If you ARE Crab Rising, take heart – this is brilliant and it means you currently have Pluto in your House of Love – BIG relationship time, like a soulmating vibe. AND, well, you could find something else in your chart to get that natural nobility-leadership vibe. A strong Mars, for example.
Everyone else – what do you think?
