Manglik Dosh

Share This Post


A Kundli can have many good and bad yogas. Bad ones are generally referred to as Doshas.  Among them, the enigmatic Manglik Dosh holds a unique place, influencing the destinies of those it touches. It is a prominent dosha that affects the married life of two individuals and should be looked into while match-making is being done.

Understanding Manglik Dosh:

Manglik Dosh, also known as Mangal Dosha or Kuja Dosha, is a planetary alignment primarily associated with the red planet, Mars. When Mars occupies certain positions in a native’s birth chart, it gives rise to Manglik Dosh. Manglik Dosh is formed when Mars is placed in the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th house of the natal chart. The severity of the dosha varies based on specific combinations and aspects.

Impact on Marriage:

In Vedic Astrology, Manglik Dosh is considered a crucial factor influencing marital compatibility. Individuals with Manglik Dosh are often believed to face challenges in their married life. While Manglik Dosh is perceived as a potential obstacle, Vedic Astrology offers remedies to mitigate its effects. These may include specific rituals, gemstone recommendations, or performing charitable acts.

Manglik Dosh – Facts and Myths:

The planet Mars symbolizes courage, aggression, vitality, confidence, fighting spirit and warrior qualities. So Mars, placed in above six houses will definitely impact the behavior of the individuals.  Since Mars is an aggressive planet, if badly positioned, it can become a cause of accidents and other bad events in life. In our ancient society a female was normally not considered to have these strong qualities, probably that’s the reason it has been tagged as a Dosha. Nowadays the scenario has changed completely, though the thought process in some cultures is still similar. Thus, based upon the background we can take it as a Dosha or prefer to give a logical importance to it. 


Mars is a natural malefic and certain placements can give bad results. Manglik Dosh or not, if Mars is not well placed in the chart it will create problems in the life of the native. Marriage is the union of two individual identities and if the thinking and behavior is not complemented, it becomes difficult to have a cordial and loving relationship. In this background we should check the influence Mars has on the personalities of the two individuals and then decide if the match is compatible or not also taking other factors of match making into consideration.
