We all have many dreams about our children. Indian parents, especially, are very anxious about their children. Most want their children to be doctors or engineers. Parents work hard to give the best education to their children.

According to the principles of Vedic astrology, we can understand whether the child will do well or needs support in his studies by checking his horoscope. It can also suggest which subject is most suited for the child to study.

There were no such elaborate subjects in the earlier days; it was limited to Nyaya, Mimamsa, and Sidhanta. Students used to study in Gurukula, and they gained knowledge in weaponry as well, all according to their class and caste.

Nowadays, the abundance of subjects confuses parents and children regarding what to choose and what not to. In the earlier days, the focus was not on careers but on gaining knowledge about karma and justice. Nowadays, people are more about making money than having practical skills for overall well-being.

Regarding education, Mercury and Jupiter are given more importance than other planets. These two planets have a significant impact on the education, learning and intellectual development of the child.

In Vedic astrology, Jupiter is seen as the planet of education and knowledge. When Jupiter is situated in a trine or centre with the lord of the fifth house, the native gets excellent results in the field of education. Mercury is the factor of intelligence. If Jupiter is well placed with Mercury in the horoscope, then the person gets great educational achievements.

Significance of the second house

The second house plays an important role in successful education. It indicates the learning aspects of the child. If an auspicious planet is placed in the second house of the horoscope, then the child will get a good education at the primary level.

If the lord of this house is aspected by auspicious planets, it improves the person’s learning abilities at an early age. The presence of Mercury or Sun in the second house means that the person’s speech will be sweet and skilled in conversing with others.

When Mercury, Venus and Sun combine in the second house, the person learns Vedas and other scriptures. But this kind of knowledge is not suitable for the benefit of material pleasures. It is better suited for mental and emotional welfare.

The presence of inauspicious planets like Mars, Rahu or Shani in the second house leads to bitterness in the speech and the child is not interested in studies at all.
