Planet Moon and Education!

The Moon has been said to be the planet of fecundation. The Moon is the deciding factor in shaping the events of life.

The Moon in Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces show better inclination to studies than when he is in other signs. The effects accruing from the Moon vary in nature according to his waxing and waning states. The waxing Moon in the ascendant, the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 9th and 11th bhavas indicates good intelligence and aptitude for learning. The waning state and weakness arising from his position in signs with malefic connections beget adverse results. The Moon in the malefic 3rd bhava, makes one a man of few words. In the benefic 3rd bhava, the strong Moon blesses the native with high education. The position of the full Moon in the 6th bhava coinciding with Taurus or Cancer is productive of shrewdness and soundness of mind. The weak Moon posited in her inimical or debilitation sign which coincides with the9th bhava creates intellectual poverty. The same effect is indicated by the Moon in the 10th bhava coinciding with an inimical or malefic sign or his sign of debilitation with full aspects of malefics. The strong Moon in the 2nd, the 4th or the 11th bhava gives intellectual faculty and rationality. The Moon in the ascendant makes the native learned, when strong Saturn is posited in the 10th bhava fully aspected by Mercury. But the Moon in the ascendant fully aspected by Mercury makes the native of low mental capacity.

The Moon in the 12th bhava brings out bad words. The aspect of Mars on the Moon and the lord of ascendant show dullness. Words of humor mark the native when the Moon in the 8th or the 12th bhava is fully aspected by Venus. The Moon with navamsa in a sign of Mars fully aspects by the lord of the 9th bhava posited in the 9th blesses the native with rare wisdom and makes him a celebrated author. The owner of the sign in which the Moon is posited falling in the 4th bhava gives understanding and reasoning power. The lord of the sign occupied by the Moon invested with all strength and aspects by powerful benefic – this one planet by himself – blesses the native with discernment, perception and prudence.

Sunapha and Anaphayogas formed by the position of planets excluding the Sun in the 2nd  or the 12th  bhava from the Moon indicate generally intelligence and tendencies for high education. When one or more planets are placed in the 2nd bhava from the Moon, Sunapha is caused. One or more planets in the 12th bhava from the Moon give rise to Anapha Yoga. When both the 2nd and 12th  bhavas are occupied by planets the yoga is called Dhurdhura.

There are 31 combinations each under Sunapha and Anapha and 180 combinations under Dhurdhura. The tendencies and particular tastes for different branches of learning are impacted by the traces of intrinsic characteristics of planet or planets responsible for the yogas. While deducing results from these yogas it must be borne in mind to take into account the strength of the planets or planets causing the yoga, the nature of the country and of the Government and also of the family and status of the native.

Mars as yoga-karaka imparts haughtiness, cruelty, hard and militant nature. Mercury infuses a fine and soft behavior and interest in music, fine arts, dance and allied things. Jupiter confers discretion, perspicacity, talents and advising capacity. Venus lends a pleasure-seeking tendency with cleverness, shrewdness and amiability. Saturn instills skill, forwardness, keenness and an inclination for underhand dealings. These fine traces bestowed by planets are to be suitably applied in deducing of results.

When the Moon falls in Centre (the 1st, the 4th, the 7th and the 10th) from the Sun weak intellect is indicated. The Moon’s position in Panapara houses (the 2nd, the 5th, the 8th and the 11th) from the Sun shows medium intelligence. The Moon’s occupation of Apoklima houses (the 3rd, the 6th, the 9th and the 12th) from the Sun gives a good intellect.

Aspects of planets on the Moon, when he is posited in different signs form the most important factor in the study of mind and intellectual capacity through which alone discernment of the line of education is possible. The Moon as Karaka of the mind is the one planet who gives tendencies for various things and aspects of planets on the Moon, and his combinations with them give definite shape to those tendencies. A thorough examination of these points is therefore absolutely necessary in a determination of the fine of education.
