MANGLIK DOSHA (MARS AFFLICTION)
Unfavorable Placement of Mars Disrupting Relationships
Vedic Remedies to Mitigate Affliction and Strengthen Relationships
What is Manglik Dosha?
According to Vedic Astrology, Manglik Dosha, an astrological affliction, is also called Mangal Dosha, Bhom Dosha, Kuja Dosha, or Angaraka Dosha. Manglik Dosha (Mars Affliction) can lead to a short-lived relationship, discontented relationship, breakup, or separation. Manglik Dosha is believed to be more powerful when Mars is in the Ascendant than in conjunction with the Moon. If a person has an adverse influence of Mars (Mangal) due to its placement at the time of their birth, they are called Manglik.
How Cosmic Alignment Creates Manglik Dosha
When Mars occupies the 2nd house, 4th house, 7th house, 8th house, or 12th house, from Ascendant (1st house), Moon, and Venus in the birth chart or horoscope, the cosmic alignment creates Manglik Dosha.
South Indian astrology considers Mars in the 2nd House for Mangal Dosha. It is called Chevvai (Sevvai) Dosham in Tamil. When the planet Mars (Mangal) is placed 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 (Ascendant) chart, Moon Sign chart, and Venus chart. If Mars occupies the houses mentioned above, it can create Manglik Dosha. Mars, by itself, is powerful enough to create an affliction (Dosha).
How Manglik Dosha Can Impact You
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 a fiery, aggressive, and impulsive planet that exhibits high emotion and passion. Mars is a malefic planet and can cause destructive emotions that could alienate you from your loved one.

AstroVed’s Dosha Remedial Programs
Planetary positions and movements can influence our lives to a greater extent. Dosha is derived from Sanskrit, signifying disorders. In Vedic Astrology, a Dosha denotes unfavorable planetary placement in a birth chart. It means a combination of malefic planets in the twelve houses in the birth chart that can override the positives in the horoscope. Doshas (Afflictions) can create a malefic effect even if transit planets are in a good position.
