Moon, Mercury and Jupiter play vital roles in learning and education. This is because education needs mental inclination and ability, intelligence, thinking and memory. Jupiter should be taken as the chief karaka for education as it is the planet of knowledge, wisdom, creativity, intuition, thinking and memory.
Systems and methodology of imparting education may be different from continent to continent or in oneís own country. Educationists who evolved the same would have had their reasons. Astrology can provide some broad-based pointers to the pilgrimís progress. Planetary configuration and signification of the houses can provide clues to your educational prospects, levels of achievement and proficiency. Of course, there are exceptions like prodigies, geniuses, superstars of entertainment and sports, business tycoons who have succeeded in life without even the basic education.
