Astrology and Prospects for Education

Astrology had its beginning in the primitive day of human civilisation. In Sumeria  and Badylonia  the development of astrology dates from 3000 B.C, in China it flourished in 1500 B. C. Vedanga Jyotisha, the earliest astrological record of India, is said to be of 4500B.C. In the earlier stages of human culture astrology consisted solely in observing the Sun and the Moon and tabulating  solilunar data.
Astrology came into medieval Europe via the Universities of Spain in the 11th and 12th centuries. Nowadays research and interest in astrology is almost exclusively carried out by societies having the nature of associations in India and also in the western countries.
In shaping human destiny  the science of astrology plays a very important role. In India and abroad most of the people seek the guidance of genuine astrologer in performing important works. With the help of astrology, it is possible to predict all the important events in one's life. Education is one such an important event.
In ancient times, education was meant for the sake of education, and not necessarily for the sake of eking out's livelihood. But in these days, we are mainly concerned with its practical side.
What is education? According to the Concise Oxford Dictionary "education is defined as follows - Bringing up (of the young) : systematic instruction, course of this, as classical, commercial, art education, development of character or mental powers.
According to the famous education, Raymant, " In the wider and less definite sense, education means that process of development in which consists the passage of human being from infancy to maturity, the process whereby he gradually adaptshimself in various ways to his physical, social and spiritual environment. "
According to Swami Vivekananda, " Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man. "
According to the president writer, Education means harmonious relation between body, mind and soul. A person with an MA / M. Sc degrees should not be called as an educated unless there is real integrity of knowledge. A degree-holder only can be called as leaned in that particular discipline.
In modern times, there are various branches of education, which was not so before, when the text book on astrology were written by the scholars of astrology.
At present the field is vast, so much experience is necessary for the present astrologers to give specific advice regarding a particular line that which suits the native. In this article an attempt has been made to analyse the important branches of education from the astrological view point.
In the Parasari system of Astrology the 4th house is considered as the house of education whereas in Jaimini astrology the 2nd house and the 5th house are considered as the houses of education or scholarship. The authors of 'Uttar Kalamrit' and the author of Sarvartha Chintamani holds the opinion that the education should be examined from the 2nd house. Many Western astrologers believe that the 3rd house from the ascendant is the house of education. The 5th house is the seat of emotions as also the creative faculties of the native, while the 9th house gives us a clue as to the native's moral strength and higher mind.
I am of the opinion that 2nd house is not the only house for education, other factors should be considered very carefully for definite judgment. I have seen in a number of horoscopes where exalted Jupiter is in the 2nd house, but they are not qualified. But I know some persons where 2nd house is aspected by a matefic, or 2nd house is afflicted but they secured high qualifications.
Various factors are to be considered to know how far the native will prosecute for the educational pursuits. According to my observations, for high school and College studies which need regular attendance to learn the subjects by hearing the lectures from the beginning to end, one is to judge the houses fourth and eleventh. The 4th house signifies education and qualifications of a person. The eleventh house indicates fulfilment of desire. The connection between 4th and 11th indicates good results regarding academic matters. A man becomes proficient in learning if the following combinations are present in the horoscope.
1. A Well aspected 4th Lord or a benefic be in a 4th or Mercury by powerful.
2. The 4th Lord, Mercury and Jupiter be exalted in their own houses, in the 4th, 5th, 9th, 10th or 11th house.
3. Venus is in the 4th house with Mercury.
4. Jupiter in the 4th house with favourable connection with the 4th Lord.
Mercury in the 4th house is considered by some to be bad, as Vidyakaraka in Vidyasthana. But Mercury in Virgo in the 4th for Gemini ascendant nature has been found to the quite good. The author of Jatak Parrijata says, that if the lord of the 4th house and Vidyakaraka Mercury are strong, in good houses and free from malefie aspects the native become famous for his learning. One is likely to exercise a learned profession like law, medicine, engineering or an art like acting, music or painting, for example if good Mercury and Venus is in the 4th house.
Jupiter in the 4th with the full moon, makes one a scholar in shastras or a learned professor. A person is also learned when lagna is occupied by Jupiter and  fourth house is powerful. While Jupiter in Lagna blesses the 5th, the 7th and the 9th houses by his aspect.
According to the opinion of some Pundits 9th house is the house of research. For carrying on research and submitting Thesis etc. 9th house must be blessed by Jupiter, and also 4th house, its Lord must be strong.
Those who have prosecuted their higher education in foreign countries, in their horoscopes, there must be a good relation between 9th, 4th and 12th House of different environment. I have seen in number of cases, where such combinations exists of the natives who had their higher education in foreign country.
One becomes devoid of college degrees if (1) the 4th Lord be in the 6th, the 8th, the 12th in company with or aspected by malefics. (2) the 4th Lord in retrograde motion in the 6th and 4th house is not aspected by Jupiter.
After careful scrutiny of 4th house, one will understand that whether the native will get the degrees in college education or not. In the connection 10th hours should be looked very carefully because the planets in the 10th house aspecting the 4th house. The 10th House is very important in delineating one's livelihood. As 10th being opposite to the 4th house, so it should not be overlooked.
The 2nd house is important after the 4th house regarding the degree matters particularly. Today oratory is looked upon as an art, which is very necessary to impress the audience, particularly in schools, colleges, universities, law courts, Parliament, any sorts of meetings and where not (particularly where the speech is needed). There are number of astrological combinations, where one becomes skilled in oratory.
Some of them are as hereunder :-
1. The 2nd Lord be in the 2nd with powerful Mercury.
2. The 2nd Lord posited in the sign of Mercury and Mercury is powerful.
3. The 2nd Lord in an angle aspected by lagna Lord.
4. The 2nd Lord is powerful, and a good connection with Mercury.
5. Mars in the 2nd house associated with a benefic and aspected by a benefic and Mercury in an angle.
The 5th House indicates one's intellectual capacity and on its strength one successfully prosecutes his studies. If the Lord of the 5th House, Mercury and Jupiter are posited in dusthana with malefic planets without any benefic association or aspect, a man becomes void of knowledge. According to Vaidyanath Dikshit if Jupiter, Rahu and Saturn are in the 5th House, which is aspected by Venus and Mercury, indicates that a man becomes well versed in all sorts of knowledge.
The 7th House analyses for competitive examination. In ancient times, there were no examinations as in the present days. If the 7th House is strong, its Lord is well posted and well associated, a student can come out successfully in the competitive examination.
Now I am explaining the following planetary combinations for different branches of education.
