Jupiter which rules the 6th and 9th houses, so their father is like a strict guru in they life and at the same time they’re naturally inclined into the social services in life. In the future or older age or even second phase of life, these people have high chances to work related to banking, gold and finance and even teaching thus becoming that spiritual guru as Jupiter rules the 9th house of teaching. Ketu is always considered to be good or bad depending upon sign it placed, this also depends of the planets, its conjunctions and its aspects. This is regardless of gender of the native.
Functional malefic of cancer rising.
Saturn, mercury, venus and rahu are considered as functional malefic of the cancer ascendant. Saturn which rules the 7th and 8th houses, which brings very disciplined, cold and strict wife or partner who has lot of principle. Principles that every one has to follow and also a lot of transformation can be happen after the marriage, but its good transformation or bad transformation depending upon planets conjunct and aspect by saturn. Because the moon always is highly desirable and saturn will always go against desire. So the highest enemy to each other. Mercury which rules 3rd and 12th houses. So their communication always bring conflicts and misunderstandings. And can end up in loosing a lot of relationships, because of miscommunication. At the same time mercury rules brain and thought process and moon rules the heart and emotions, so the heart and brain will always have internal conflicts. Conflicts in making decisions and at the same time these people have chances to work in marketing, sales and corporate companies for sure. Venus which rules their 4th and 11th so they always get most comfortable in their properties and in their cars and home life. But the relationship with mother will always be non emotional. Because venus is financial desires and moon is emotional desires, so these two contrast and bring contradicting activities. This will bring misunderstanding between the mother and child, at the same time these are who gain and succeed their personal desire, through their female network circle for sure. As Rahu is considered as the biggest malefic to the moon because it brings darkness and eclipse to moon energy, at the same time if rahu is under the influence of jupiter or in jupiter’s signs such as Sagittarius or Pisces or 9th or 12th houses, it will control the negative energy and try to support the cancer rising people in life.
