Introduction to Mangal (Manglik) Dosha

Manglik or Mangal or Kuja Dosha means affliction of Mars (Mangal) in the birth chart and can be regarded as one of the much-feared afflictions in Vedic astrology. It is one of the important factors considered during the horoscope matching of a bride and a groom during a marriage proposal. Mangal (Kuja) Dosha is caused due to the adverse positioning of the planet Mars (Kuja) in your birth chart and can have serious effects on your marital relationship and harmony.

Effects of Mangal (Manglik) Dosha

Mangal or Manglik Dosha is thus an adverse affliction that could result in serious relationship problems when Mars is placed in particular Houses in a birth chart. However, the position of Mars in each of these Houses can cause different effects. When you have Kuja Dosha in your horoscope, you may face one or more of the following adverse effects:

  • Become egotistical, dominating and aggressive
  • Face delays in marriage
  • Problems in marital life
  • Health problems
  • Financial stress and failure
  • Disputes or separation from spouse

Remedies of Mangal Dosha (Kuja Dosha Nivarana)

Following are a few simple remedies that you can follow to lessen the effects of Manglik (Kuja) Dosha:

  • Worship planet Mars and Navagraha (9 planets) on Tuesdays
  • Propitiate Lord Hanuman and Lord Muruga on Tuesdays
  • Observe fasts and chant mantras in favor of planet Mars
  • Do charity, donate blood on Tuesdays and feed birds
  • Wear a ring with the gemstone coral in the right-hand ring finger
Placement of Mars Indicating Mangal (Manglik) Dosha

The following are the placements of Mars from Ascendant and Moon in the birth chart, which indicates Mangal (Kuja) Dosha:

  • Mars in the 1st house
  • Mars in the 2nd house
  • Mars in the 4th house
