Jupiter in Cancer is fixated on family issues and comfort on a personal level, patriotic issues and outright chauvinism on a grander scale. The line between pride in family, heritage, tradition, and ancestry on the one side and the support of offensive philosophical dogma, religious fanaticism, clannish ethnicity, and "spiritual righteousness" can become exceedingly fine.
Jupiter in Cancer is dedicated to expanding one's private life comforts (and often will prompt interest in home improvement and extension), to securing the safety of one's family (frequently with a touch of xenophobia in the mix ... an "us against them" ... and "don't trust outsiders" mentality), and offering benefits to those in one's family circle (with a real tendency to spoil one's "special people" by making life too cushy and too painless for them really grow and strengthen themselves through struggle and adversity).
Jupiter in Cancer shows love by making life "easy" and then feeling smugly blessed by its own generosity ... so much so that a sense of entitlement sets in, and a life posture of expecting way too much of one's circumstances and relationships coupled with a habit of promising way too much of oneself becomes the norm. (Jupiter in Cancer is the classic "rich kid who was born on third base and thinks he hit a triple.")
