Will your Child Excel in Education?

Learning is a part and parcel of life and a child starts learning from the moment of birth. For school and college level education certain houses play important role. Some Yogas indicate excellence in education.


Learning starts the very first day as a new born child opens eyes, so from this point of view the whole birth chart is important. For education at school and college mainly the houses 4th, 5th and 9th of a birth chart are particularly related.

To be more specific while considering formal education we need to consider the 4th house for school and college level education up to graduation and the 9th house for higher education, which is beyond graduation and leads to post graduation and research. In addition to these the 5th house denoting level of intelligence and the significations Mercury and Jupiter play important role.

The 5th house lord, Mercury and Jupiter carry special importance and any or all of these if ill placed, debilitated or receiving malefic aspects fail to give excellence in education.

While judging excellence in education we also need to look for link of 4th and 9th house significators with the 11th house of fulfillment.

For research work and thesis writing the 8th house is crucial.
