Sy Scholfield quotes ascendant sign from Schneeman in a 1969 letter to a friend: "I have found out something curious c/o Champs Elysee Astroflash computer: I'm Libra/Sun, Jupiter, Venus all Cancer rising, Cancer governed . . . triple Libra, Cancer dominated . . . and then Leo follows strong. Don't yet really know what it means. . . " (Kristine Stiles, ed. "Correspondence Course." Duke University Press, 2010, p. 149). She probably meant "Libra/Sun, Moon, Venus" and "Jupiter (on MC?)."
