Manglik Dosha - Our Red Planet (Mangal) and Its Significance In Astrology

Meaning Of Manglik Dosha

First, let’s just have a look at the pre-introduction of this furious planet “Mars”. We are all quite familiar with the name as it’s the scientific name of a very red planet which we called “Mangal” in Hindi. The red planet is widely misunderstood in the astrology world as the ”angry bird” of the solar system.

But In Reality, this universally acceptable identity of Mars is not factual. Because planet Mars has two sides to its very nature, one is its innate nature which is malefic and could cause trouble only if it resides in the destructive house in your horoscope but on the other side, it can be extremely beneficial if it stays in the house of that supreme power.

Mars is not a troublemaker by nature, it’s the house that is responsible for its activities which could be negative or positive for that matter. On that note, now let’s get a little deep on the subject of Manglik Dosha.

Horoscope matching Kundalis is a form of astrological matching. Matchmaking is an ancient Indian tradition that is given due consideration before marriage is finalized. Horoscopes are used by many Hindu families to guide their behaviour, and make important decisions. Because it is considered to be the most important factor in matchmaking, “Manglik dosha”, also known as Kuja Dosha, becomes a major issue in the marriage of a girl or boy. Due to such issues, marriages can be delayed unnecessarily at times.

And here comes the role of Mangal ( Mars), and its significance placement in the horoscope is the main parameter for consideration of ‘Manglik dosha’. If Mars appears in the Ascendant, Fourth House, Seventh House, Eighth House, or Twelfth House, then the individual is regarded as ‘Manglik.’ “Kuja dosha” is also considered by certain astrologers and books.

Matchmaking may give priority to certain Houses for a variety of reasons. The self, or Lagna, is represented by this. Also, to be An angry and violent individual might be the result of Mars’s location in the “Lagna.” House 2 is home to your kin (immediate family). Mars in the Second House might bring issues with family adjustment. The House of Comforts is located in the fourth house. If Mars is placed in the Fourth House, it might hurt the family’s comfort. It should be noted that Mars’s placement in the Seventh House, which governs marriage, may lead to misunderstandings in marital relationships.

Suhaag Bhava and Ayu (longevity) are both represented in the Eighth House (House indicating longevity of marriage). Mars’s placement in this House denotes danger to oneself and one’s partner thus. Mars’ placement in the Twelfth House, the House of marital contentment, is also not considered a beneficiary.

Marriage has always been a big affair, and so is this matchmaking. So for this whole affair, the astrologers / Pandits have to count the Houses from the ‘Lagna’, the Moon, and the Venus. With so many Houses and parameters involved, it becomes hard to find a horoscope without a ‘Manglik dosha’. However, in the case where ‘Manglik dosha’ is severe, i.e. when Mars is heavily afflicted with no benefic associations or aspect, ‘Manglik dosha’ can cause problems in marital life.

Scriptural Meaning: If Mars is in the ‘Lagna’, Fourth House, Seventh House, Eighth House, or the Twelfth House of the horoscope, the spouse can be a cause of death.

We know what you must be thinking now, and that must be that” Can Mars alone cause such tragedies in marital life? Normally, it has been observed that if Mars is without any destructive houses or aspects, it may not cause havoc in a marriage. As a result, the scripture quoted above cannot be taken as gospel truth. ‘Manglik dosha’ might also lead to divorce or separation if the conditions are serious enough.

Mangal Dosha & Impacts On Marriage - An In-depth Analysis

So far, we can conclude that Manglik Dosha (Kuja Dosha) can cause a few tremors in marital life, but the obvious question here is that what is the extent? The answer to this question is not very plain, though, as most of us are conditioned in a way that we think that Manglik Dosha (Mangalya Dosha) is dangerous, but that is not the fact.

There are twelve Houses in a Horoscope, and if Mars is in the 1st, 2nd (according to some astrologers of South India), 4th, 7th, 8th, or 12th House, then it’s said to be Mangal Dosha. So, out of 12 Houses, there are six houses where the position of Mars is said to cause the Manglik factor. Hence the ratio of Manglik and Non-Manglik is 50:50 (If you exclude the 2nd House, then it becomes 60:40).

However, Mars is a planet that is known for its aggressiveness. One becomes dominant, aggressive, and irritable as a result of it. A disagreement between husband and wife is the result of it aspecting or making a direct or indirect aspect to the 7th House.

If there is a Mangal Dosha in a Horoscope, it is often believed that the partner would die. This is just not true. As a result, Mars is highly affected, and the 7th House is plagued by more than two ailments.

Conclusively, we can say how bad Manglik Dosha could be in married life, is based on the astrological aspects associated with it.
