Manglik Dosha or yoga

Manglik Dosha or Mangal Dosha is considered a bad combination for marriage or relationship, caused due to Mars' adverse position, in Indian Vedic astrology. This yoga is believed to create some disturbance to the concerned house it occupies. This should be considered merely a misconception and not always true.

It is merely a misconception that all Manglik people born with this combination are under bad effect of Manglik Dosha. Before making the final judgment, whether the individual is under bad effect of Manglik Dosha, Mangali Dosha, Kuja Dosha, Bhauma Dosha or Chevvai Dosham it is important for an astrologer to check and analyze carefully the horoscopes of the Manglik boy or the Manglik girl through the astrological chart readings.

People do not want to be called to have born with Manglik dosha or Kuja Dosha, so it is better to call it Manglik yoga.

 For example, if the Mars is in the ending degrees (29°) of ascendant and ascendant is in the starting degrees(1°) of Aries, the position of Mars will be changed (in Bhava chalit chart)

By considering these factors, we find that the percentage of Mangali or manglik dosha affected individuals has come down.

Is there any reason for a Manglik to feel dejected?

These so-called Manglik people have a lot of energy to take initiative, which is necessary to be channelized in full-fledged manner for creative work. I have personally observed that Manglik people are more energetic and capable of doing hard work and struggle for building up their career. They achieved their desired goal, in spite of hardships they faced. I have found through astrological chart readings of a large number of individuals, whose lives have been affected by Manglik Dosha or Yoga, majority of them have dynamic personality, they are very graceful in appearance, highly educated, they have been students of science and technical streams and now they are doctors, engineers, holding high positions in Indian civil services and other government or corporate offices. They are very successful and renowned businessmen as well. So why to be discouraged or feel dejected.

Manglik dosha and its effects

The ascendant or Lagna happens to be 1st house in astrological birth charts. Individuals born with Mars in 1st, 4th,7th,8th,12th and in some cases in 2nd house from ascendant (Lagna) or Moon are considered manglik. Mars in 1st, 4th and 12th house has direct aspect on 7th house which represents marriage and marital life. Mars in 7th house is itself, in a house representing marriage or marital relations while Mars in 8th is in a house which represents general relationship and welfare of spouse. If Mars is posited with Rahu (dragon's head) or any other cruel planet(Paap graha),in any of these houses in  an astrological birth chart, the bad effects of Mars or Mangal Dosha will be nullified.

Problems in the marriage of a Manglik girl or a Manglik boy

Delayed marriage, obstacles in finalizing the marriage at the last stage, problems in adjustments in married life, strained  relations with family members or in-laws, divorce in more adverse cases, obstacles in job or career, financial losses may be indicated due to the effect of Mangal dosha. Mars generally affects up to the age of 28 years, in some cases till 32 years. Mangal can affect adversely till 34 years of age in most severe Mangal dosha cases, present in a horoscopehoroscopeDefinition: synonym birth chart, prepared with date, time and place of birth of an individual....
due to the affliction of Mars or presence of Kaal Sarpa Yoga.

One should not worry if marriage of a Manglik boy or a Manglik girl is delayed, as the bad effects of Mars are minimized. One thing I would like to mention here that couples born under adverse effect of Manglik dosha would rather stay away from each other, especially during bad planetary Mahadasha or Antardasha or adverse planetary transits in an individual's horoscope, for one reason or another, due to the circumstances.

Do not miss the opportunity

Often people ask me questions whether the girl or boy I wanted to marry is suitable match for me. Whether our marriage be a happy one, will my husband/wife be the life partner that I had imagined. There are times when you get opportunity to finalize your marriage but there are lots of questions and doubts that keep confusing you. Do not hesitate to move ahead if you think this is your suitable profile and you have a lot in common and your birth charts are strong and promising.

One of the significant issue is that you should be self-reliant, professionally and financially stable before getting married. You should have enough money for monthly expenses to live a peaceful life. Nothing is perfect, we need to make things reach perfection. Do not miss the opportunity. 

Marriage is a commitment  made by two persons who are living together in conjugal partnership, making public and official relationship, traditionally or legally and facing challenges in day-to-day life together, taking the responsibilities to solve them, and bring love, peace, happiness in life, as well.

Whether the marriage is a love marriage, an arranged or a love-cum-arranged marriage, the real judgment of the character, qualities, nature or the characteristics of the spouses can only be made after they start spending more time with each other and living together under one roof as a married couple and start facing and tackling a range of problems that come in their daily life.

As the characteristics, values, traditions, financial or educational status, food and financial habits of both the partners may be quite different, the newlyweds will have to make many adjustments. For newlyweds, it will take first year of marriage to adjust with each other, even if their horoscopes match. So have patience!

Astrological Remedies for Mangal Dosha for getting married and love compatibility without obstacles

Individuals should perform some prescribed rituals with the advice of a learned astrologer before getting married. It would be better if Manglik yoga or Mangal dosha is present in the astrological natal charts of both the boy and the girl. Manglik-matching is also considered from the position of Mars in the 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th and 12th house from Sun, Moon, Venus or ascendant in the birth chart, as these are believed to be horoscopes of Anshik Manglik. Some different methods are also considered for astrological compatibility match with the help of other Paap grahas, such as, if Sun, Saturn, Rahu or Ketu are present in any of the above houses, in the natal chart of either the non-manglik boy or the non-manglik girl.
