The 'joy' by sign, like the 'joy' by house is a function of sect, as far as I understand it. Thus diurnal planets are at their best in their diurnal sign. Thus Jupiter 'prefers' Sagittarius to Pisces and Saturn 'prefes' Aquarius to Capricorn. The Sun and the Moon have one sign each, so for them it's Hobson's Choice.

I don't think you can compare here. The 'Joy' by house comes from a different and posibly older system. The Hellenistic Astrologers did not 'score' dignities like the Mediaeval ones, though virtually all the dignities are common.

I tend to give a little more weight to Sun in the ninth than I would do for another planet with the same essential and accidental dignities and being in the ninth.
