According to Indian Astrology, if the planet, Mars is present in the 1st, 2nd, 4th,
7th, 8th or 12th house of a chart, then Manglik Yoga or Dosha or the Kuja Dosha
is created. Manglik Yoga or dosha is especially considered as highly inauspicious
in matters of pertaining to marriage. This dosha may cause the marriage to be unsuccessful,
troublesome. These may even be the result in death of the spouse. If a person with
Manglik dosha gets married to someone who also has Manglik Yoga or dosha, then the
ill- effects of the dosha tone down or completely cancelled. Such a union is therefore
recommended and considered prosperous.
But such a presence would mean that almost half the people throughout the world
have Manglik Yoga or Dosha. Therefore the marriages of almost half the people should
have troubles and fail. But just the presence of Mars is not enough to decide what
kind of results the native will have.
The strength and the position of the Mars should also be looked at to make further
predictions. If the strength is more than around 55%, which is very rare, only then
the Manglik Yoga or Dosha will be the of cause serious damage to the marriage, result
in divorce, or result in death in certain rare cases. Therefore, although Mangal
Dosha could be a common phenomenon, it’s a cause of real destruction.
The presence of Mars in these houses doesn’t always suggest a Manglik Yoga or Dosha.
It, on some rare occasions, could also suggest Manglik Yoga, which is the exact
opposite of the Manglik Dosha. Manglik Yoga can be formed if the Mars is a beneficial
position in these houses. This Yoga makes the native’s marriage successful, prosperous,
happy and timely.
Mangal Yoga or Dosha can also get cancelled within a chart itself because of some
auspicious placements of other planets and signs. If Planet Mars is placed in own sign,
which are Aries and Scorpio, or in exalted sign, Capricorn or in the houses of friendly
planets, which are the Sun, the Jupiter and the Moon, then the Mangal Dosh will
If the 2nd house is Gemini or Virgo and has Mars in it, then also the Mangal
Dosh got cancelled. If Planet Mars is placed on the 12th house and lord of Ascendant, ie when placed on sign Taurus or zoiac sign Libra,
then again, the Mangal Dosh got cancelled. If Mars is placed in the 8th house and
ruled by Sagittarius or Pisces, then the Dosha isn’t even created. If the lagna
sign is Cancer or Leo, then Mars becomes a beneficial planet. Hence its placement
anywhere would not cause the Mangal Dosh to form.
If the Lagna sign is Aquarius, then Mars will be placed in 4th or 8th house. It
cancels the effect of Mangal Dosh. If the auspicious planets, Jupiter or Venus,
are placed in the Lagna house, then placement of Mars anywhere will not form a Mangal
Dosh. If Mars is in combination with the planets Jupiter or the Moon, then any placement
of Mars will not be the cause of the formation of a Mangal Dosh. Lastly, if Mars
is in combination with the Sun, the Mercury, the Saturn, or the Rahu, then again,
any placement of Mars does not form the Mangal Dosh.
Therefore, one must be careful in the readings regarding Mangal Dosh. Although the
definition is the basic and anyone can find the Manglik Dosha, based on this definition,
a lot more is there that determines the true nature of the Mangal Dosh. The Dosha
might be getting cancelled. It may have never existed due to the influence of some
auspicious positions, or maybe the exact opposite of itself, the auspicious Manglik
