Field of Education

It is possible to predict the subject in which one will gain knowledge. When these classics were written, the subjects present were vastly different from the ones students study these days. So, one should carefully adapt these rules for modern education.

From Jaimini Sutras by Jaimini Maharshi:
  • From the 4th from karakamsa:
    • If Ketu is present, the native will be skilful in preparing clocks, watches and other time indicating machines.
    • If Mercury is present, the native will become a paramahamsa (a great sanyasi).
    • If Rahu is present, the native will become proficient in instruments made of metals.
    • If Sun is present, the native will hold a sword (proficient in fighting).
    • If Mars is present, the native will hold mace (-do-).
  • If Jupiter and Moon are in the karakamsa or the 5th from it, then the native will become an author. If Venus joins Moon as mentioned, the native will be an ordinary other. If it is Mercury, he will be even less an author (i.e., author of lower potential).
  • If Venus is in the karakamsa or the 5th, the native becomes a poet, eloquent speaker and study literature.
    • If Juputer is there, the native becomes well-versed in multiple subjects but would not be a great speaker. He would know grammar, Vedic literature and Vedangas.
    • If Saturn is so, the native will be nervous on stage/assembly.
    • If Budha is similarly placed, he will become well-versed in meemaamsa.
    • If Mars is placed similarly, the native will become a logician (lawyer?).
    • If Moon is placed so, the native will know Sankhya Sastra, will know literature and sing.
    • If Sun is placed so, the native will know Vedanta and songs (could be interpreted as Bhagavad-gita?).
    • If Ketu is placed so, the native will be well-versed with Mathematics.
  • If Jupiter aspects any of the above combinations, the native will attain deep knowledge of those subjects.
  • The above combinations can be checked from the 2nd from karakamsa too.
