A thing to remember here is that these posts are strictly meant for the particular planet position. Like, today we are looking at Jupiter in Cancer, so the description given here may change for you if your Jupiter is although in the sign of Cancer but with conjunction with or aspected by other planets.
So, lets see what Jupiter can do in Cancer without any conjunction or aspect from any other planet. 1st lets see what these 2 things represent --
Jupiter is the most benefic planet and it represents all the auspicious things like Knowledge, Wisdom, Law, Guru, Spirituality, Religion, Philosophy, Literature, Elderly People. For a girl, Jupiter also represents Husband.
Cancer is 4th sign of Zodiac Belt, hence it represents the things represented by 4th house like Mother, Mother's care, Emotions and Nourishment etc. Cancer is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatras namely Punarvasu, Pushyami and Ashlesha. Cancer's lord is Moon.
It is said that one well positioned Jupiter and its Mahadasha in midlife is enough for a person to lead a good life. And when it comes to the good positions of Jupiter, nothing can be better than one in Cancer. Here, it is exalted. Jupiter is exalted at 5 degrees of Cancer. Now, why Jupiter is exalted in Cancer? Jupiter is the planet of knowledge, wisdom and spirituality. Cancer is the sign of Emotions. So, when Jupiter is in Cancer, person naturally shares his knowledge. He doesn't have to be told or forced, but out of his own emotions he is happy to share his knowledge. Hence, it is best position of Jupiter.
So, when Jupiter is in Cancer, this person not only has the best knowledge in his subject but he is readily willing to share his knowledge. He is always approachable and willing to share his knowledge. That's what makes him best teacher. They are always seen as Teacher, Preacher or Guru. Even if they are not in academics, they will be teacher in their own field of work. People will naturally come to them for advice. Only thing to take care of is that Jupiter can make them really fat. So, this they need to be careful about. Else, it is one of the best positions one can have in chart.
Now, the question comes about the level at which Jupiter is going to give good results. So, it again would depend on the Nakshatra Jupiter is sitting in. If Jupiter is in Punarvasu Nakshatra, then it is in its own Nakshatra, so very good position. If Jupiter is in Pushyami Nakshatra, then it will be directed by the condition of Saturn in horoscope as Pushyami's lord is Saturn. Again, If Jupiter is in Ashlesha Nakshatra, then it is impacted by Mercury as Nakshatra lord.
Also, as Cancer is ruled by Moon, we need to look at Moon's position. Moon's position will actually determine that how Jupiter is going to behave in Cancer. Again, horoscope should be judged in its totality.
Tomorrow, Jupiter in Leo.
