In the present paper the polarization self-action of light in arbitrary oriented cubic crystals of 432, 43 m and m3m groups are considered. The equations of evolution of light polarization parameters in this case are derived. The detailed analysis of SICP effects under the propagation of light wave along the all symmetry axes is presented. The eigenpolarization of light wave in nonlinear crystal are found. The dependence of nonlinear effects caused by SICP (self-induced rotation of self-induced deformation of polarization ellipse, self-induced oscillation of polarization ellipse or establishing of stationary state of polarization) on orientation of crystal's axes with respect to wave vector, nature of nonlinearity of refractive index (relations between components of nonlinear susceptibility tensor) and input state of light polarization is determined.
