Manglik Dosha


Planetary positions and movements can influence our lives to a large extent. Dosha is derived from Sanskrit, signifying physical disorders. In Vedic Astrology, a dosha denotes unfavorable conditions in a birth chart. It means a combination of malefic planets in the twelve houses in the birth chart that can overrule the horoscope’s positives from coming to fruition. Doshas can create a malefic effect even if transit planets are in a good position. They may harm the life of the native.

Manglik Dosha

What is Manglik Dosha?

According to Vedic Astrology, if a person has the influence of Mars (Mangal) at the time of his/her birth, they are called Manglik.

Manglik Dosha is also called Mangal Dosha, Bhom Dosha, Kuja Dosha, or Angarakha Dosha. Manglik Dosha is believed to be more powerful when Mars is in the Ascendant than conjoined with the Moon in the Ascendant. This dosha is believed to be an astrological affliction.

How Cosmic Alignment Creates Manglik Dosha

In North India, astrologers do not consider the 2nd House while calculating Mangal Dosha. In South India, astrologers do not consider the 1st House while evaluating Mangal Dosha in a birth chart (horoscope). In South India, it is called Chevvai (Sevvai) Dosham in Tamil.

However, it is important to consider both the houses for evaluating Mangal Dosha.

When the planet Mars (Mangal) lies in the 12th House, 4th House, 7th House, and 8th House from your Ascendant, Moon Sign, and Venus, it forms Manglik Dosha.

Manglik Dosha can be identified with the Lagna chart, Moon Sign chart, and Venus chart. If Mars occupies the above- mentioned Houses, it can create high Manglik Dosha. Mars, by itself, is powerful enough to create 100 percent dosha.

Mangal Dosha gets canceled due to various combinations and aspects of Mars with other planets.

Mars in 2nd House

Mars becomes negative and active in the 2nd House and may create many obstacles in married life. It may damage the marriage of the native, leading to separation or divorce.

Mars in 4th House

Mars can create havoc with a professional’s life, forcing them to be inconsistent, dissatisfied, and switch jobs constantly. The individual is likely to be plagued with financial trouble.

Mars in 7th House

Mars is fiery and can be imposing and demanding of others. An individual with Manglik Dosha will find it difficult to maintain cordial relationship with others. Being dominant and intimidating by nature can lead to misunderstanding within the family and create conflicts.

Mars in 8th House

Mars can be prone to laziness and be very erratic. The moodiness and short-tempered outbursts can confound family and others around them. They may be prone to accidents. They may not be able to develop a good rapport with elders and may lose the paternal property.

Mars in 12th House

Mars can be restless and overcome by a feeling of failure. This may make the individual more aggressive and unpleasant and create problems while dealing with other people. They may suffer financial losses and create enemies because of their negative disposition.

How Manglik Dosha Can Impact an Individual

According to Vedic Astrology, certain planets are believed to be malefic, and if they are improperly placed in a natal chart, they can cause adverse effects on an individual’s life. Mars is believed to be a fiery, aggressive planet, high on emotion, of mercurial temperament, and passionate.

  • Having ego and volatile temperament.
  • Complex in nature and unwilling to compromise.
  • Can face financial losses.
  • Can have delay in marriage.
  • Conflicts between spouses.
  • Hurdles in the profession.
  • Separation or divorce.
  • Lasting disability or even the demise of a non-Manglik spouse.

Home Remedies for Manglik Dosha
