Education sets the basis for career and life standard. Astrology can help Studens to find out when there is a problem with the Academic performance or help them in making the right choice by analyzing the Horoscope.

In Astrology, the houses that signifies the Education are

  1. 2nd house - For Primary and Secondary Education
  2. 4th house - Depth of knowledge and grasping power
  3. 5th house - Graduation
  4. 9th house - Post Graduation, Higher Studies

In addition to the houses, the Planets also play a major role in deciding the Education

  1. Moon - Ability to read and Retain
  2. Mars - Engineering, Medical Field
  3. Mercury - Mathematics, Auditing, Accounting, Communication, IT
  4. Jupiter - Finance, Teaching, Higher education in Management Studies
  5. Venus - Fine arts, Music, Creativity, Fashion Designing, Automobile
  6. Saturn - Machinery, Mechanical Engineering
  7. Sun - Electrical Engineering, Medical Field
  8. Rahu / Ketu - Surgeon, Computer and Electronics Engineering

In a horoscope, if any of the houses responsible for Education are afflicted, then the person will not be good at studies. If Moon is afflicted, the person will have poor memory. But, functionally benefic Jupiter aspect can override the ill effect.

When Transit Saturn is transiting through natal chart Moon (Janma Shani) or 8th house (Ashtama Shani), the person will temporarily lose ability to read & retain. But, proper coaching or Tuition can help to improve.

In a horoscope, if Saturn aspects Moon, then such students should select Technical Education instead of any Arts & Science, because they will not be good in Read & Retain (poor memory).

If Rahu Dasha is ruling and Rahu is placed in 2nd house, then the student will experience obstacles or will be playful in studies. If Rahu is placed in 5th house, and Janma or Ashtama Shani is also ruling, then the student will not complete the Graduation in time.

If 6th house Dasha is ruling, then the student will suddenly develop "Exam Fear" and the academic performance will decline.

If 5th house is strong in a horoscope, that person will complete Graduation successfully. If Venus or Mercury is placed in 9th house, that student will complete Post graduation in Management studies.

If the birth star of a person Mrigasirsha or Hasta or Uttara Ashada (stars having Dosha of Jupiter), such person Education and field of work will have no relevance.
