Astrology and Your Intelligence Level
Intelligence Level – Your current level of intelligence and the scope of its development are indicated in your birth chart.The astrological factors related to these aspects are described and also ways of improving these.
At the outset of this brief article I would like to clarify three terms viz. Intelligence, Knowledge and Wisdom.
It is the ability or mental capacity or brainpower to apply reason for judgement and understanding. Knowledge and intelligence are quite different things. It is intelligence which gives depth of understanding of various concepts and ability to put acquired knowledge to the best practical use.
Intelligence Level – “The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.” – Albert Einstein
Knowledge’ is information of which someone is aware. Knowledge is also used to mean the confident understanding of a subject, potentially with the ability to use it for a specific purpose
“When you know better you do better.” – Maya Angelou
Wisdom’ is the ability to make correct judgments and decisions andjudicious application of knowledge. It is an intangible quality gained presumably through experience.

Placement of the 9th lord Saturn in the 10th (square house) is very auspicious and gave him name, fame and good luck in achievements.
Conjunction of Rahu with exalted Mars in the 8th house of deep thought gave him success in research work. Mars in his horoscope falls in the constellation of the 4th lord Sun and is also the lord of the constellations of the 5th and 9th cusps.

Yes it is a fact that the level of intelligence with which a person is born can be improved even to unbelievably high levels.
Improving Intelligence Level
Apart from specific diet which supplements brain power the following factors are important:
• Breathing Exercises (Pranayama): Regular daily sessions of certain breathing exercises give peaceful mind, improved intelligence and ability to think with clarity.
• Peace of Mind: A tranquil mind is necessary in order to use ones intelligence in the right direction and with maximum efficiency.In a birth chart judge the 4th house, its lord and the Moon in order to find out the state of native’s mental peace.
• Exercise or utilization of Brain: The moire you uses your brain the more it develops. Particularly in old age people do not use their brain very much and hence loss of memory and brain power is common.
The saying: “If you don’t use it, you will lose it” very well applies to the human brain.
• Ability to Digest Knowledge: Reading a lot on diverse subjects or topics and not able to digest all information is an easy way of landing in a mental home. Be very selective and until you exhaust all information given by one author or person on your topic of interest do not go to others.
Loads of un-understood or undigested information can clog your mind and reduce your level of intelligence. Read and re-read and give time for information to sink to your subconscious and be comprehended clearly before reading further.
