The Astrology of Becoming an Engineer

Becoming an Engineer – The horoscope of a person indicates his or her interests and inclinations towards a particular stream of subjects. Some indications in a birth chart for taking engineering line and becoming an engineer are described here.

Becoming an Engineer

Planets Representing the Engineering Line

Mercury and Jupiter are the basic planets which signify education so these are to be considered for any education related analysis. The planet Mercury is very much linked to engineering or technical education and career because it represents intellect, mathematics and mechanical engineering as well.

If the planets Sun, Mars, Saturn, Rahu and Ketuin fluence the significations of education and career they create interest and aptitude for engineering line.

The Signs which Represent Engineering Line …

The airy signs viz. Gemini, Libra and Aquarius indicate technical education.

Also if Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer or Leo sign fall in the 4th house and Rahu is associated with this house and its lord then chances of getting technical education are greater.

Constellations (Nakshatras) related to Engineering …

The three constellations (Nakshatras) of Mercury viz. Ashlesha, Jyeshtha and Revati play an important role for creating interest and aptitude in engineering study.

General Indicators of Technical Education…

Association of Rahu with the 4th house of education is a strong indication of technical education.
In addition to the above indicators the following can be taken as instigators of technical or engineering education:

• Any association between Saturn and Mars.

• Any association between Mars and Rahu.

• Influence of Sun or Mercury or both over the 4th, 5th, 9thor 10th house.

I have observed in many charts of engineering students and successful engineers association between Saturn and Mars. I believe this is because Saturn not only indicates machines or engineering but it signifies one’s foresight, concentration of mind, depth of thought and study and ability to plan.

Also the planet Mars indicates practical ability, efficiency in organizing, instruments and logical thinking. All these features represented by Saturn and Mars are a must for engineering study and excellence in this line.In the present state of art of nearly all engineering branches mathematics plays a crucial role hence the strength and placement of Mercury in a birth chart must be evaluated to start with.

Various Branches of Engineering …

The pivotal planet Mercury when associates with other planets then it give aptitude for different branches of engineering, just for example:

• Mercury with Mars indicates mechanical engineering
• Mercury with Venus indicates chemical engineering.
• Mercury with Venus and Mars indicates Computer engineering
• Mercury influencing Saturn gives interest in Civil Engineering
• Mercury along with Jupiter having association with Saturn can give interest in Financial Engineering (This new branch of engineering has been introduced in various IIT’s and Engineering colleges in India)

Birth Chart of a Successful Engineer …

Below is a birth chart of an engineer who was successful in his career as a Civil Engineer:


Let us look at some important indicators in this birth chart. The cuspof the 4th house falls in the sign of Mercury and the constellations of Jupiter.

Mercury and Ketuoccupy the 4th house of education

Thus we can conclude that Mercury, Jupiter and Ketu are the clear signification of education for this birth chart.

Furthermore Mercury falls in the constellations of the 10th and 11th house lord Saturn.

Mars and Sun are conjunct in the sign of Mercury viz. Gemini and these are aspected by Saturn from the 6th house.

Influence of Saturn and Mars over Mercury is mainly responsible for this native’s interest and success as a Civil Engineer.
