Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system, whose gravity is so powerful it protects Earth and the inner solar system from the threat of incoming comets and asteroids. Jupiter’s cycles are regular, balanced and stable, its phases with the Sun span in even thirds around the sky, evoking the strength and stability of the triangle. Accordingly, Jupiter signifies benevolence, expansiveness, wealth, opportunity, stability, trust, faith, confirmation, friendship, gifts, talent, honors and wisdom. The condition of Jupiter at the time we were born says something about the quality of the year that we come from, where there is greatest excess and abundance, how we do the most good and how we are most blessed and honored, etc.
Jupiter in Cancer is in a cardinal water sign and takes on the qualities of its ruler, the Moon. This is someone for whom opportunity and abundance lie in their inherited advantages from their parents, the shelter and security of their home, the warmth and closeness of family bonds, and the support and protection of their communities. There can be an excessive faith in one’s home, family and country, a paternalistic patriotism, too close of an identification with one’s “tribe”. Philosophically, they’re disposed towards what ultimately supports life, health, families, kids, quality of life. Jupiter champions that which is wholesome, domestic and family-friendly in Cancer. While this can be bland and boring to some, this can be deeply comforting and desirable to others. You can be the sage, the professor, the fount of wisdom and protector of niche communities or “families”.
This is especially true if you were born with Cancer, Sagittarius or Pisces rising. However, this can also describe others in your life who are relevant to the houses where Jupiter, Sagittarius and Pisces are placed. Whether you experience the better or worse significations of this position depends on whether you were born during the day or at night, and the kind of aspects it makes with the other planets.
