What is Mangal Dosha

What is Mangal Dosha

Mangal Dosha is the negativity or malefic effect caused within the birth chart of an individual because of the placement of Mangal (Mars). Mangal also known as Angaraka or Kuja, is one of the Navagraha (nine planets) in Vedic astrology.   Mars is known for being fiery by nature so the characteristics like aggression, power, determination, courage, strength can be associated with this planet. Mangal Dosha is also referred as Kuja Dosha, Kuja Dosham, Manglik Dosha, Manglika Dosha. 

When we have to analyse the influence of Mangal Dosha in the chart, we need to refer to various factors to determine the strength of this ill effect. If the native is Manglik from Ascendant and Moon chart both, then the net effect of this Manglik effect gets increased. So the need is to understand the nature of your mars and how strong or weak your mars is.

Mangal rules over the signs Mesha (Aries) and Vrishchika (Scorpio). Sun, Moon and Jupiter are the planets which are considered friendly to him. A positive influence of Mars can give a person energy, strong will, independence and self-confidence. 

Even if you are least familiar with Vedic and Hindu Astrology, you must have heard of Mangal Dosha especially in context of marriages.  Mangal Dosha occurs when a person is under the negative effect of Mars, which is regarded a malefic planet in Vedic Astrology. In the Indian Vedic Kundali Matching, there is a lot of importance to Mangal Dosha. 

In a birth chart, there are 12 houses.  Mars placement in 1st, 2nd,4th, 7th, 8th, or 12th houses is considered negative for a marriage, which is why it is referred to as a ‘dosha’. First house refers to self, second house represents immediate family, fourth house stands for domestic comforts and happiness, 7th house is for the partner, 8th house refers to deaths & longevity, and twelfth house stands for bed comforts.

Since it’s fiery malefic planet, but the outcome of Mangal Dosha is not always dreadful. There are certain planetary positions and combinations that mitigate the effect automatically. Let me explain you some of the placements of Mars which can lead to Manglik Dosha :

Mars in 1st house:

The 1st house represents the house of spouse. Thus it normally affects the married life leading to unnecessary conflicts. It might also lead to physical assault and violence. Due to such unacceptable behavior such a person might suffer from tension, distress, separation or even divorce.

Mars in 2nd House:

2nd house signifies wealth, and relationship with relatives. Mars’ position in 2nd house makes a person inimical to relatives and causes separation from the spouse. Mars aspects 5th, 8th, and 9th houses when positioned in 2nd house,which casts negative effect on children of the Manglik.

Mars in 4th House:

In the 4th House, Mangal gives rise to tendencies where the native starts feeling hurt and as it aspects the 7th House, one's influence of hurt emotions and feelings will hamper the marriage.

Mars in 7th House:

If Mars is placed in the Seventh House, it may cause several types of sufferings. The native may have problems from enemies, unnecessary worries, body weakness and sorrows produced by attraction to opposite sex.

Mars in 8th House:

In the eighth house, Mangal destroys the longevity of self and with its aspect to the second house, creates hot speech, influencing marital harmony.

Mars in 12th House:

In the twelfth house, Mangal will aspect the seventh house and as it is in the twelfth house of bed comforts, one may be highly active in sexual activity and hamper the marriage home due to frivolous sexual demands and activity.

How to reduce bad effects of Mangal Dosha:

There are various ways to cancel out ill-effects of Mangal Dosha in the birth chart. One can follow the principles of vedic culture to mitigate the negative influences. Here are the few methods one can follow:

  • Fasting to placate Mars
  • Kumbh Vivah
  • Reciting Mantras
  • Offerings and contributions
  • Wearing gemstones in the form of rings
