Jupiter in Cancer
Because Jupiter is exalted in this sign, the cosmic soul perceives its testimony on behalf of the native more easily. According to Robert Schmidt, this is like an issue that because of its greater merit is given more immediate consideration. It is interesting that a place administered by the Moon would give greater merit to Jupiterian issues. It is like the stomache placing great importance on candy and cake. Weight may be a problem for some. In any case, this is an indication that the native is fortunate with regard to matters domestic and feels supported by friends and family. This has the effect of sheltering the native from the cruel realities of life to some extent. Wealth is not unusual, especially if fortune should be here; and they are generous with philanthropic tendencies. Frequently their wealth comes from their parents through inheritance. This is also said to be fortunate for any journey that takes place on the water, and the native may be a natural born sailor, due to Cancers association with water and Jupiter's association with wind.
In a diurnal chart, the heat rarifies (purifies) support based relationships making for clearer boundaries in relationships with others. There is greater loyalty and trust amongst friends. The clearness in social status makes for fewer awkward or embarassing situations.
In a nocturnal chart, the cool and moistness of night limit Jupiters ability to protect the native from some harder realities. The social circle is usually more inclusive as a result. There is usually greater wisdom about how the world really works.
