Predicting Education with the D-24

July 31, 2011 Vedic Astrology Diary Archives

By Vaughn Paul Manley, M.A. There are several heated debates among Vedic astrologers, and one that hovers near the top of the heat index is, "Which is the primary house of education?" enerally, north !ndian astrologers attribute the "th house, #hile south !ndians give the $th house. !%ve addressed this issue in three previous articles& 'hat is the (ouse of )ducation*, !deas About the "th (ouse and )ducation, andThe Three Most !mportant (ouses of )ducation . 'ith regards to this +uestion, both north and south !ndians are right in my opinion. (o#ever, the $th house is typically seen for compulsory foundational education ,precollege., #hile the "th house is seen for non-compulsory college education, or the point #hen the student has choice in the sub/ects to study, and pic0ing a ma/or. 1o for educational counseling purposes, meaning #hen someone is trying to determine #hat they should study or ma/or in, it%s a "th house matter. Also, the "th house, "th lord, or 0ara0as 2upiter and Mercury #ill reveal favorable dasha periods as #ill be sho#n in the follo#ing example charts. !n 3.4. 5ao%s excellent boo0, Astrology, Destiny, & the Wheel of Time, he says& "The great Maharishi Parashara stresses the role of the 5th house for education. ne need not go into this contro!ersy at the moment. Through illustrations and one"s o#n e$perience one can understand these pro%lems." This article provides a fe# good illustrations of ho# the "th house can be seen for predicting periods of education. This is sho#n not only in the natal chart, but also in the D-6$ divisional chart, also called the &hatur!imshamsha or 'iddhamsha, #hich is the primary divisional chart for education. But first let%s discuss the +uote by Maharishi Parashara that 3.4. 5ao refers #hen he says that Parashara stresses the "th house for education. (ere%s the +uote& "(rom the 5th house are to %e seen amulets )yantras* sacred spells )mantras*, learning, the splendor of the intellect, +no#ledge )!idya*, sons )children*, capacity to manage affairs )royalty*, and fall from position ),th house from the house*." - /rihat Parashara 0ora 'hastra, verse 7, chapter 89 'hile the translated #ord is not %education% itself as in %academic pursuits,% it%s hinted at by %learning,% %intellect% and %0no#ledge.% The "th house is the process of learning, increasing 0no#ledge and exercising the intellect. 'hether it%s formal or informal education, or ac+uiring secular or spiritual 0no#ledge it can seen primarily from the "th house. Another hint from classic texts that education can be seen from the "th house, is in the 2aimini 1utras. !n the 2aimini system, the 0ara0amsha lagna and the "th house from it indicate one%s professional inclinations and the educational training suitable for that profession. (ere%s a +uote& "1f 2enus is alone in the 3ara+amsha or in the 5th from it, one %ecomes a poet, an elo4uent spea+er, and a good critic of literature." 5 6aimini 'utram

Moon is the :th lord. aspected by exalted Mercury. because it%s the :th house from the :th house.D6$. #hile the :th house can be seen for higher education or post graduate studies. but can also indicate post graduate degrees secondarily.
