Have you met Aquarius who seems to be more affectionate or emotional than any other Aquarius you’ve ever met? He may be an Aquarius man with Cancer rising.

Have you met an Aquarius man who seems to be more affectionate or emotional than any other Aquarius you’ve ever met? He may very well be an Aquarius man with Cancer rising. Here are some things to keep in mind regarding this interesting blend of man.


Aquarius men are typically very independent and do things the way they want to do them. They very much have the attitude of “my way or the highway”. He’ll also prove to be very picky with whom he chooses for a mate.

However, when Cancer rising steps in, he becomes more sensitive. This type of Aquarius man will be more emotionally driven and more empathetic to others problems.

He may struggle with himself as he wants to be his own man but he feels drawn to find the right mate for himself whereas other Aquarius men will just wait for the right one to come along.

Cancer rising will make Aquarius seek out his soul mate so that he can feel complete by having his family in motion. Aquarius men know that there is someone out there special for them and they’re willing to wait.

Cancer rising isn’t quite so keen on waiting. They want to find the person that makes their soul tick and their heart sing. He’ll be more social due to wanting to find the right person to settle down with.

He’s already social being an Aquarius but in this way, he’ll relate and be able to understand other people far better. He still thinks outside the box but he also knows that it’s ok to feel something.

With Relationships…


Due to Cancer rising, this Aquarius man will work hard to provide security and stability for his partner. This is what he craves and so he’ll want to also give it to his partner.

He will devote himself to loving his partner. This also means that when he finally has sex with his partner; he’ll feel that love much deeper than an Aquarius typically will.

Cancer rising equates sex with love and therefore, he takes what he does very seriously unless he’s really young. The younger generation tends to be a bit more careless while they have fun.

When they’re ready to settle down though and create a family, they calm down and devote themselves to the woman they love and to his future children that they may have together.

The sexual experience with this man will likely feel like the real deal. It will be passionate and very tender. He wants his partner to feel comfortable and able to let go in the bedroom.

He’s often a bit freaky sexually but not in a bad sort of way. He likes to experiment and do things that are pleasurable for both parties. He isn’t a selfish lover thank goodness.

Other Life Situations

Aquarius is normally the freedom seeker especially when it comes to working. They like to either own their own business or work for a company that will allow them to do their own thing at their own pace.

They are risk takers typically. However, when Cancer rising is involved, the Aquarius man will find himself being a bit more cautious instead of risk-taking. He’ll be a bit calmer.

He’ll also calm down when going out and doing activities that are risky such as hang gliding, bungee jumping, airplane diving, etc. Aquarius loves these types of adrenaline rushes.

Cancer will remind him to be a bit more careful as he has a lot to accomplish in life and a family to build upon. It will put his priority in a different place than the normal Aquarius.

Aquarius man with Cancer rising will gravitate toward activities that are a bit safer but are still very fun and he can bring his partner with him.

This combination may also cause him to be a bit gun shy when it comes to taking a financial risk. Cancer wants things to be stable while Aquarius wants to “go for it” when it comes to asking for a raise or promotion.

Aquarius men will risk what they have to in order to succeed with their own business as well. Cancer rising will make him a bit more skittish to invest if they feel it’s not a completely solid plan.

This could create some confusion with this guy and he may find himself battling himself when it comes to whether or not he should go ahead and invest time and money into a potential money making plan.

Cancer rising could talk him out of doing it because he’ll feel regret and maybe a bit resentful toward himself. Cancer can be prone to depression. Aquarius typically doesn’t get depressed but with Cancer rising, it’s possible.

Overall Situation with Aquarius man with Cancer Rising


These are really amazing men with a lot to offer the right partner. He’ll always be loving and attentive as well as loyal. He will still be somewhat picky but that’s because he wants to make sure he’s found the right person.

Aquarius moves slower than Cancer but the two energies within will mix and find the timing that is right for the individual. Instead of being focused on Aquarius not being very flexible; know that Cancer rising could make him a bit different.

He may be more willing to get closer and open up at a little bit of a faster pace. Then again, he could become overly protective of himself and his life thus making him a little too paranoid to go faster.

Each man is going to be different and it’s important you learn the basics of all Aquarius men so that you understand the difference that they may have due to their rising sign.
