Importance of Muhurat in Starting the Education of a Child

muhurtha-for-educationAll parents have their dreams that their children will shine in life and make a successful career. Parents try their best to realize these dreams. But sometimes they are shattered when a child does not feel interested in studies or lags in a subject. Astrologers say that a child’s education should be started on a good muhurat to make the academic life smooth and successful.

Our ancient scholars and philosophers after much research and experiments concluded that muhurats are very effective in making a task more fruitful. An auspicious muhurat makes a work successful whereas an inauspicious muhurat may lead to obstacles in a work.

Similarly a good muhurat is very helpful for a child who is about to start his or her education. While considering muhurat for education some other things are also considered which are discussed below:

Consideration of time
Entry of the Sun in the northern equinox is very auspicious for starting the education of a child. Some astrologers say that whole year is auspicious leaving the 11th lunar day of Ashada shukla paksha to the 11th lunar day of kartik shukla paksha. While considering time it should be noticed that Jupiter and Venus are not combust.

Consideration of lunar day
2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 10th and 11th lunar days are auspicious for starting the education of a child.

Consideration of week day
Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays are auspicious days to start the education of a child. Sundays and Mondays are also normal in this respect. But astrologers say that Tuesdays and Saturdays should be avoided.

Consideration of the Ascendant
It is an excellent condition to start an education if the muhurat contains Ascendant of moveable signs like Aries, Cancer or Virgo, which have benefic planets on 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, 9th or 10th house, malefic planets on 3rd, 6th, 10th or 11th house and 8th or 10th house have no planets.

Consideration of Moon/tara
The day when the placement of Moon is on the 4th, 8th or 12th house from the birth sign of the child and the 3rd, 5th or the seventh house is without any tara is a good muhurat for starting the education of a child.

Consideration of nakshatra
If the starting day of a child’s education has moveable nakshatra like swati, punarwasu, shravan, ghanistha or shatavisha, milder nakshatra like hasta, ashwini, pushya, moola, mrigashira, chitra, purvashada, purvaphalguni, purvabhadrapada or ashlesha then it is considered very auspicious for the child.

Consideration of age
A child’s age is also an important factor of muhurat for starting his or her academic life. Odd years like 1st, 3rd, 5th or 7th years are very good. But if admission in a school happens in the 4th or 6th years then parents should try that education starts on the 1st or the 3rd month.

Astrological restriction
Parents should not start the education of their child during the bhadra lunar day and other inauspicious yogas as these combinations may hamper good education of the child.
