Manglik Dosha, Kuja Dosha in Marriage


There are lot of myths and wrong believes among people about Mangal Dosha in a Horoscope. Mars is the major planet which creates fear in the mind at the time of marriage. Mars, on the positive side, is significator of property, brothers, courage, boldness, authority, good health etc. On the negative side, it rules accidents, fire, sudden death, injuries, quarrels, arrogance, impulsive nature, haste, violence etc.

Every planet has its own importance in a horoscope and so Mars is also an important planet. Some people believe that Saturn generally gives malefic results to everybody which is not true. Similarly, the most benefic planet like Jupiter may be a strong killer in a horoscope. Each horoscope has different lagna or ascendant and different planets become benefic or malefic for the native.

Mars is the most malefic planet for lagna ruled by Mercury i.e. Gemini and Virgo. For Virgo, it is more malefic than Gemini ascendant.

What is Manglik Dosha

When Mars is placed in 1,2,4,7,8,12 houses, it causes Manglik Dosha. We need to see these houses from Lagna, Moon and Venus. In North India, Astrologers exclude second house but in my opinion, Mars can adversely effect marital life when ill-placed in second house. In Astrology, Venus is the significator planet of Marital happiness henceforth placement of Mars from Venus should be given higher importance.

Planets like Saturn, Sun, Rahu and Ketu are also malefic planets and can adversely effect marital life in decreasing order after Mars. Henceforth, complete Horoscope should be examined to conclude the Dosha.

For example, if Mars is a benefic planet for a lagna, it will not so adversely effect the native. Also, a planet placed in his own sign, friendly sign and exaltation sign in auspicious houses will not adversely effect the marital life.

Cancellations of Kuja or Manglik Dosha

1) If Mars is conjunct with Venus and placed in benefic signs and auspicious houses, it does not cause Kuja Dosha.

2) When Mars is benefic for a lagna and well placed.

3) When Manglik Dosha is present in both bride and groom chart, it balances the horoscope.

But Mangalik Dosha should not effect one person only and one should avoid marriage in these combinations especially under affliction;

a) If Mars is present in lagna in female chart and in 7th house of male chart.
b) If Mars is present in 7th house of male chart and 8th house of female chart.
c) If Mars is present in lagna of both charts.
d) If Mars is ill placed in mentioned houses and afflicted.

4) If benefic Jupiter is placed in auspicious houses and strong.

5) When 7th lord is strong and Venus is also well placed in the chart.

6) Mars in sign:- Aries in lagna, Scorpio in fourth house, Taurus in 7th house, Aquarius in 8th house and not afflicted.

I would also like to mention here that apart from Manglik dosha and Guna Milan, one has to give very high importance to dasha sequence of the native and other combinations for potency, progeny, wealth, financial prosperity and longevity of the native.
