Jupiter in Cancer Personality

We are family! Jupiter in Cancer blesses its children with large families—both biological and found. On account of their kindness and thoughtfulness, people flock to them and tend to stick around. In return, Cancer Jupiter offers devotion and empathy. For this reason, Jupiter in Cancer will always have somewhere to call home. In fact, those with this placement receive their greatest cosmic blessings when they lean into their more generous, nurturing natures. The togetherness and warmth from their loved ones fuel their cheerfulness.

Still, due to Cancer's association with the moon and Jupiter's tendency toward overblowing situations, moodiness isn't uncommon for those with their Jupiter in Cancer. So, they must take care not to fall prey to sulking, as it can unduly weigh them down. Sour moods notwithstanding, theirs is an energy of familiarity that calls back to the joy of childhood.

Positive Traits

Though those with their Jupiter in Cancer really hit their stride after their middle age, they can find success throughout their lives if they trust their intuition and tap into their compassionate nature. Caring comes as naturally to those with this placement as does breathing. Call, and Cancer Jupiter is sure to appear. As they look after their family, their loved ones tend to return the favor.

Still, these folks understand the value of looking after themselves as well, as security is a priority for Jupiter in Cancer. As a result, they rarely suffer a low account balance or turbulent living situation for very long.

Negative Traits

Jupiter in Cancer must learn that some people don't deserve their sympathy. While caring is a virtue, they need to pour into their own cups before they pour into those of others. Self-care is the most important type of care!

Additionally, because Jupiter expands Cancer's already elephantine memory, these folks should also take care not to get lost in the past. In this way, those with their Jupiter in Cancer can be some of the longest grudge-holders in the zodiac—along with Scorpio, of course.

When the planet of expansion meets sweet Cancer, a big heart is almost guaranteed for these natives. Generosity is the key word for those with their Jupiter in Cancer. While the average Crab can be a little shy, Jupiter gives this placement a greater willingness to expand their circle of friends and dive into adventure. As a result, these folks tend to have many bro's in different area codes.

Still, on some level, Cancer Jupiter prefers the security of the familiar—people, places, and things—and displays the nesting tendencies of the average Cancer placement. So, their homes are often their castles, and they can become uncharacteristically aggressive when it's threatened in any way. However, in their heart of hearts, Jupiter in Cancer makes for a simple creature, a big softie who dreams of consistent comfort and stability.
