Marketing and advertising are governed by Jupiter and the 9th house. This doesn't only apply to you if you work in marketing or advertising - we all have to promote ourselves in some way, shape, or form at various parts of our lives, whether you're trying to get a promotion, get into college, or get followers on social media.
How comfortable you are with it and how your style is can be found with the sign and house location of your Jupiter, and the sign on the 9th house cusps and any planets in the house. Jupiter or the 9th house in earth and water signs tends to be more traditional and not loud or flashy, and may not be super comfortable promoting yourself, preferring to deflect attention and promote others (especially water signs). Earth signs can be more comfortable for promoting for business purposes, but not too keen for personal reasons. Fire and air signs can have an easier time with promoting. Fire signs can take action and expose their personality; air signs can make good use of social media.
(Note: Fire signs are Aries, Leo, Sagittarius; earth signs are Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn; air signs are Gemini, Libra, Aquarius; and water signs are Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
Jupiter in the 1st house (self) and 9th house (the house Jupiter naturally rules) can be naturals with promoting; in the 2nd, 6th, and 10th house, it can come out through work (and these positions can show working in marketing/advertising); in the 3rd or 5th, it may be done with humor; if the 4th or 8th, it may be infused with emotion; in the 7th or 11th, it may be done with/for others; in the 12th, you may shy away from it completely, or only want to do it for others and not yourself.
The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, or Jupiter in the 9th house can make you much more comfortable with promoting and a natural marketer. Saturn in the 9th house can make you super uncomfortable with it and struggle with it until later in life. Uranus in the 9th house can show you need to do it in a different, unusual, unconventional way, and may be good at online marketing. Neptune in the 9th house can show a strong intuitive marketer, but struggling with it on a conscious level. Pluto in the 9th house can show being a powerful promoter, strong and intense, but sometimes encountering opposition from those who feel threatened by you.
