Retrograde Jupiter in First House in Cancer
When retrograde Jupiter is placed in the first house of a horoscope in Cancer, Cancer rises in the ascendant. Jupiter rules the sixth and ninth house. In general, it is partly benefic and partly malefic here, though the benefic part is higher, in most cases. The concept of various planets exhibiting tendencies to be benefic or malefic on the basis of the houses they rule in a horoscope has been explained in the book ‘Gemstones: Magic or Science?’.
Retrograde Jupiter in the first house of horoscope in Cancer is benefic in many cases, though it may turn malefic in some cases. It may happen when such Jupiter is influenced by one or more malefic planets, and/or an overall malefic horoscope. The concept of a benefic planet turning malefic due to influences of malefic planets has been explained in the book ‘Match Making and Manglik Dosh’.
When benefic in nature, retrograde Jupiter in the first house of a horoscope in Cancer can bless the native with good results related to marriage (female), husband, father, spiritual growth, creativity, health, lifespan, profession, finances, reputation, authority, recognition, fame and several other good results, depending on his/her overall horoscope and running times.
Such retrograde Jupiter can render various types of benefits to the native, related to or through his/her health, lifespan, marriage (female), husband and/or father. Considering father, native’s father may be a rich man, a celebrity, an officer in government or a powerful politician. The native may enjoy many benefits because of his father’s money, influence and/or status. Considering marriage (female), she may get married to a man who may be rich, a celebrity, an officer in government, a powerful politician, a successful businessman, and/or a citizen of a foreign country. The native may witness several benefits due to or through her husband and/or his family members. He may play an important role in various spheres of her life. The native may settle in a foreign country on the basis of her marriage, if her overall horoscope and running times are supportive.
Looking at profession, such retrograde Jupiter can help the native achieve success as an astrologer, tantric, psychic, spiritual guru, healer, religious guru, teacher, preacher, consultant, researcher, analyst, actor, singer, musician, writer, dancer, sportsman, artist, architect, designer, developer, professional dealing in education industry, coaching, computer, book, IT, food, health, pharma, finance, matrimonial, television, music, sports, media, fitness, travel, hotel, airline, telecom, internet industry or some other type of professional, depending on his/her overall horoscope and running times.
Taking an example, suppose retrograde Jupiter is placed in the first house of a horoscope in Cancer with benefic Moon. Benefic Venus is placed in the tenth house in Aries with benefic Mars, Mercury is placed in the eighth house in Aquarius, benefic Rahu is placed in the twelfth house in Gemini, and Ketu is placed in the sixth house in Sagittarius. Benefic Mars forms Ruchaka Yoga in the tenth house. In this case, the native may engage in media industry, and he may witness success, money, recognition and fame through it. He may own a newspaper and a magazine.
If benefic Sun is placed in the ninth house in Pisces with Saturn, the equation may improve. In this case, the native may inherit a well-established media business from his father. He may expand the business and he may come across very good amount of success, money, fame and recognition. The native may own newspapers, magazines, TV channels and radio channels, among other things. If the finer factors and running times are supportive, he may earn billions through media industry.
Such retrograde Jupiter can bless the native with authority in government as a police officer, army, air force, naval, revenue, administrative, foreign services officer, judge, doctor, scientist, engineer, politician or some other type of professional. Kindly read book for detailed example.
On the other hand, malefic retrograde Jupiter in the first house of a horoscope in Cancer can trouble the native with problems related to marriage (female), husband, health, lifespan, father, profession, finances, reputation, recognition, authority and several other problems, depending on his/her overall horoscope and running times.
Jupiter rules the sixth and ninth house, and it is placed in the first house. If such retrograde Jupiter is influenced by malefic planets, and/or an overall malefic horoscope, the native may witness various types of problems related to his/her health, lifespan, marriage (female), husband and/or father. Considering health and lifespan, the native may witness reduction in lifespan due to several reasons. For example, he may die in an accident, through a natural disaster, due to a fatal disease, due to a fatal viral infection like COVID, due to drug addiction, he may commit suicide, or someone may kill him. Considering marriage (female), the native may witness delay/disturbances in marriage, and/or one or more failed marriages. She may have serious differences of opinion with her husband, he may suffer from a long-lasting illness, he may be an alcoholic and/or a drug addict, he may be a criminal, he may not be loyal to her, he may have extramarital affair/affairs, and/or he may die within 10 or 5 years of marriage.
Taking an example for a female native, suppose retrograde Jupiter is placed in the first house of a horoscope in Cancer with malefic Rahu, and Guru Chandal Yoga is formed. Malefic Ketu is placed in the seventh house in Capricorn with Moon, Venus is placed in the sixth house in Sagittarius, malefic Mercury is placed in the eighth house in Aquarius, and benefic Mars is placed in the tenth house in Aries. In this case, the native may suffer from various types of health problems, and she may die before her age of 60 or 55.
If malefic Saturn is placed in the eighth house in Aquarius with Mercury, and Sun is placed in the seventh house in Capricorn with Moon and Ketu, the equation may become worse. Grahan Yoga is formed in the seventh house. In this case, the native may suffer from serious health issues, almost throughout her life. She may suffer a lot because of them, and she may die before her age of 40 or 35. She may develop breast cancer or lung cancer, any time after her age of 15. She may get it treated but it may come back, and it may eventually claim her life, any time after her age of 25. She may not get married throughout her life, or she may get married once, the marriage may fail, and she may not get married again.
