One of the oft received queries when individuals consider planetary gem therapy is whether wearing a jyotish gemstone can help in gaining success in matters related to education. The answer is a most definitive YES.



In Vedic astrology, the planet Jupiter also known as Brihaspati or Guru is regarded as the planet ruling over learning and education. Jupiter is the teacher of gods and deities. For the purpose of astrological analysis, he is the significator of wisdom and memory in an individual’s birth chart.

What needs to be kept in mind here is that there is a clear distinction between wisdom and intellect. While Jupiter rules over wisdom, Mercury rules over intellect. While wisdom is a subtler inner trait – that fine sense of judgement, the sum of knowledge (including that which resides in the subconscious), discernment of right from wrong; intellect refers to the ability to grasp knowledge, capacity to internalise, think or reason. Intellect is the ability to ‘use’ the knowledge!

Buddha - Wisdom

If one were to give a mental imagery to both, wisdom could be represented by the Buddha-like all-knowing, radiant face while intellect could be portrayed as the inside of a geek’s mind that tosses and churns concepts, ideas and knowledge around in several permutation and combinations to ‘use’ that knowledge.

Education in an individual’s horoscope is seen from more than one house. The 2nd house of the horoscope indicates elementary level education, the 4th house of the horoscope is indicative of education during middle and high school. Academic pursuits relating to graduation or further / advanced levels are contemplated from the 5th house or bhava. Even though there are divergent views on this topic we can safely state based on statistics collated over several years that all these 3 houses need to be analysed.

While giving power to Jupiter naturally blesses individuals with good memory, an inclination to learn and give a rather organised or structured approach towards endeavours in education. Wearing the yellow sapphire – the gemstone of Jupiter can aid success in education.
