Jupiter, planet of success, philosophy, religion, and expansion, in Cancer, sign of the home, the mother, nurturing, love, and family. In its sign of exaltation, Jupiter experiences vast growth when it comes to the home and family.
Cancer is a sign that is private, imaginative, and domestic. It relates to the mother, women in general, and feminine nature. Cancer also signifies our emotional needs, the past, daily matters, and childhood. Its ruler, the Moon, is symbolic of the womb, with a rotation and revolution speed that closely matches the menstrual cycle.
People with Jupiter in Cancer are likely to be mentally creative, sweet, generous toward family and friends, sensitive and compassionate, forgiving but not forgetful, philosophical, protective, provident, and defensive. They may express their emotions in a large, dramatic way especially if Jupiter or their natal Moon have any aspect to Mars. The home may be large either in size of residence or of family, and these natives may go on to start their own huge families. Jupiter in Cancer may also signify a fun and relaxed home environment.
The mother may have provided opportunity for the native to grow and flourish into a respectable, well-mannered adult. Her importance is highlighted by the nurturing and protective nature of Cancer. Jupiter in Cancer, therefore, represents a maternal unit who ultimately sets up the native for success. She may be creative and provide a comforting, pleasant home environment for the native. If Jupiter is poorly aspected, the native may experience emotional trauma in childhood related to the mother, which causes problems later in life.
The father can also be an influential figure, either by setting an example through his lifestyle, or by encouraging/challenging the native to overcome certain milestones. He could be financially well-off, leading to a stable home unit. The father may also be a source of wisdom and philosophy in the home. If Jupiter is afflicted, the father may be wasteful, inconsistent, or otherwise unable to maintain the home. His advice will not be the wisest and his actions will betray his words.
If the native is a man, he may experience successful business partnerships with women or possibly marry above his class (although the condition of the seventh house will be more conclusive of that). He will see financial gains if his career involves working on homes, like decorum or remodeling. For women, the marriage partner may be wealthy, jovial, and provident. He may want many children or a big home. It also suggests an intuitive, prophetic emotional nature (i.e. “women’s intuition”). She can use this gift to help her family to succeed by suggesting or exposing her children to ideas and philosophies that will encourage healthy psychological growth.
Jupiter in Cancer can represent a moralistic poet or artist. They can be tongue-in-cheek (think: Kurt Cobain) or blunt (think: Taylor Swift). Jupiter enhances the imagination, so these natives are natural storytellers who know just when to exaggerate the details for dramatic effect.
Finally, people with natal Jupiter in Cancer must learn to trust their instincts. The famous “gut feeling” is heavily tied to Cancer, which rules the stomach. Jupiter symbolizes divine providence, beliefs and intuition. When these natives learn to heed their own internal compass, they will see their luck and opportunities shoot up in life.
