The Higher Framework by god and manâ€™s finer details as Khoo Hock aptly called the phenomenon
â€¦â€¦these are the guys who have filled in a lot of finer details..Sometimes in their criticism one feels they over-complicate things with too much focus onhigher divisional charts, alternative Lagnas and Karaks at the cost of ignoring the simpleclassical ground rules. However their spirit of experimentation and innovation has leftastrology a lot richerâ€¦.so we shouldnâ€™t complain too much.Visti Larsen is from the same groupâ€¦.a Danish astrologerâ€¦.. has written quite a bit aboutSiddhamsa, the D-24 in his blogs, group- discussion on how to determine whether one willcomplete his primary education, graduation, post-graduation or doctoral.Using his rules and interspersing it with my 2 cents (based on classical rules) here is a simpleset of rules to examine how high oneâ€™s academic career will go:Itâ€™s not fool-proofâ€¦but works often enough to be looked at seriously:1. Siddhamsa D-24 is the main divisional chart for examining a native's academics2. 4th house denotes primary education, 9th house graduation, 2nd house post-graduation and7th house doctoral ( pHD) in the Siddhamsa.3. If the 4th house is related to 9th house, the person moves from primary to graduation.4. If the 9th house is related to the 2nd house, the person moves from graduation to post-graduation.5. If the 2nd house is related to 7th house, the person moves from post-graduation to doctorate6. Related means here at-least ones lord in the otherâ€¦. plus the normal association( conjunction, mutual aspect, mutual Kendra)7. If the nodes afflict any of these houses or their lordsâ€¦the education doesnâ€™t continue beyond. However Jupiterâ€™s aspect can help overcome the affliction8. Further we must not ignore the D1 and examine the 4th and 9th houses for education andhigher education in the Rasi chart with similar affliction and relationship rules. Strong Jup inrasi...will always, always support education.This is my 2-cents part based on simple classicalunderstanding.Regards Neki kar aur dariya mein daal
