Education in Vedic Astrology: The main goal of today’s generation is to attain such an education that can emerge in a successful career. Consequently right from childhood, anxiety starts forming. The majority of students are equipped to work laboriously, and the competitive spirit or the spark to accomplish is instilled.
“Education is not the learning of facts but the training of the mind to think”
However, the problem arises when students lose passion for the subject or have no certainty for the future. They are studying because everyone is getting lucrative jobs after a precise education. Unfortunately, there are students, who struggle for jobs or a stable career even after acquiring a comprehensive education. Then what goes wrong, that even after attaining specific qualifications some individuals do so well whereas others struggle a lot.
The problem is the need for awareness of one’s interests and inclinations. At this point, I have witnessed that some people are fully assured of their passion and shortly convert passion to the profession but some require direction.
Education and Vedic Knowledge
According to Vedic knowledge, every individual on this earth is born with a fixed composition of 3 Gunas, Satav, Rajas, and Tamas. Based on the Gunas, your inclinations, choices, and work is determined. The Satav Guna person will be more into gaining knowledge, Rajas will have the drive to accomplish more, and Tamas person will be emotional and possessive. Therefore based on this Vedic Knowledge, you can choose your education stream.
But how to check this Guna? Here an Astrologer, advises favorable subjects, through this Vedic Knowledge and your planetary combinations and significations. Besides, this will sequentially take you towards a fruitful profession. Now let me explain the role of planets in taking the best study course.
Planets and Education in Vedic Astrology
While analyzing a horoscope for Education, the most influential planets are Jupiter and Mercury. Plus the planets in the 4th house and 5th house, their lords, D-9 the Navamsha chart for planetary strength, and D-24 for higher and profitable education.
Jupiter and Education in Vedic Astrology
Jupiter is called “DevGuru” in Astrology. It represents the intellect of a person, your thought pattern, as it explores ideas both at a spiritual and intellectual level. A strong Jupiter governs the ideologies, education, and principles of a person. It also outlines your memory and inclination.
Therefore at the student level, a person will be able to grasp very fast. Not only this, but he will also search for the next level answers and understand certain things at such a level, that a normal person will be unable to understand.
It will also make the person humble and a knowledge seeker. Therefore a strong Jupiter will give the best education but you have to assess a chart in totality and not studying one planet. These are the properties of a positive Jupiter in the chart.
Now let me put some light on weak Jupiter. Here the person will have to face hurdles or break in education. He will have a weak memory and poor learning abilities. In fact, they neither have respect for knowledge nor for the teacher. They live in the myth that they have ultimate knowledge, so even if they get good teachers, they will not be able to take benefits.
A weak Jupiter will make a person Hypocrite, selfish, and corrupt mindset. Such people do not believe in ethics and values, therefore can take the wrong direction for selfish interests. Hence a bad Jupiter can never give fruitful education to a person.
How to determine strength and weakness of Jupiter
- If Jupiter is a functional malefic or related to the 6th, 8th, and 12th lord. through PAC. Also if in D-9 the Navamsha chart, D-24 the Chaturvimshamshait becomes Debilitated. Then it makes Jupiter weak in the horoscope.
- If Jupiter is functional benefic or related to Kendra and Trikona and also involved in raj yogas. And in D-9 the Navamsha Chart, it becomes very strong or exalted, then Jupiter gives the best results.
Mercury and Education in Vedic Astrology
Mercury depicts the sharp intellect, good memory, and analytical skills of a person. It governs the calculations and logical skills. It’s the planet of expression and communication.
Mercury also represents the decision-making and coordination of a person. Your mind should get the right direction and instruction. Also how we convey our thoughts and ideas, Mercury is comprehended for this.
Accordingly at the student level, if your mercury is strong, you have keen observation, good mathematics, and great grasping power, then you will have decision-making abilities as well. So this logical understanding gives clarity to his subject and career as well.
Now, what if Mercury is weak? Here the student will have poor communication skills, his speech will not be clear, or might use abusive language, so he will be lacking in both verbal and written language. They also have a bad memory, weak at decision making, and will always misuse knowledge and wisdom in their lives. eg. Criminals have sharp intellects and information but they take the wrong path of destruction.
How to determine strength and weakness of Mercury
If Mercury is functional malefic or related to 6th, 8th, and 12th lord through PAC. Or in an enemy sign. Also if debilitated in D-9 the Navamsha chart and D-24 the Chaturvimshamsha. Then you get limited results of Mercury in Education.
If Mercury is functional Benefic and related to the 1st, 5th, and 9th house then it gets an actual strength. And if in D-9 and D-24 it is placed in Kendra or Trikona and in friendly sign, making raj yogas, then Mercury will give the best outcomes in education.
What is D-24 – The Chaturvimshamsha Chart
The analysis of the D-24 Chart should be used to superintend a person in his early learning phase so that there should be a sync between the education obtained and the job or profession retained by the native.
In today’s synopsis, this is the most crucial dilemma of everyone which is leading to distress and an absolute impediment in career.
The D-24 chart or the Chaturvimshamsha Chart is an important divisional chart to see the status of education in particular, Accordingly to check achievements, subject expertise, break-in education, intelligence level, and furthermore the level of education in a person’s life. Let me highlight the essential points to be analyzed in the D-24 chart.
- The first house or Lagna and Lagna Lord should be very strong in the chart for achievement in education.
- The position of Education Karakas Jupiter and Mercury, play a significant role.
- The strongest planet in the chart decides the main subject, a person should pursue.
- Check the position of 4th and 5th lord of D-1, And also the strength of the 4th and 5th houses in the D-24 chart.
- If the above-assigned planets are afflicted due to Rahu/Ketu, debilitation then this chart becomes weak. So it can give a break in education or no formal education.
- Above all the combination of the 10th lord of D-1 in D-24 is the determining factor, if it’s well placed, then education can be useful in a person’s career.
The 5th House and Education in Vedic Astrology
The fifth house represents intelligence, hobbies, creativity, and also denotes licentiousness, and knowledge. The memory, and execution of our plans.
This is the house of insight, it outlines our capacity to read or judge others. The 5th lord, the Karaka Jupiter, Sun, and planets in the 5th house all together give a picture of the distinct subject or a passion.
The 5th house is the 2nd from the 4th house, which means the supporter of Sukh or happiness in your life. You will get a reflection about your passion through this house.
Therefore if the 5th house is afflicted through Rahu / Ketu or 8th lord, then you will have to face hurdles or break in education. And if you take subjects related to 8th house, like research then you will gain the best knowledge.
Education Time in Astrology
Let me explain the theory of Dasha and transit, These are the decision-makers of the chart, so if during student life, a weak Dasha going on, then you will have to face hurdles. But if good yogas and favorable Dasha then the best education is assured.
This way I have highlighted all the significant factors required in profitable education. While analyzing a horoscope for education, you have to see the strength of all planets in totality.
If all factors present, then 100% success is assured. If few good combinations but afflictions as well, then success after a lot of hurdles. But if a lot of afflictions and no good combinations then either money will be wasted in education, or there will be a break in education due to some of the other reasons.
Though the subject preference through Astrological details is a tedious task, it needs a lot of knowledge and experience. But a skilled and qualified astrologer can surely help an individual at the early phase and can guide him for a more suitable prospect.
I rigidly hold that if a person studies those subjects that are strong and point out towards his expertise or enthusiasm, then he will undoubtedly accomplish success in that distinct topic.
