|| Mangal Dosh ||



  What is Mangal Dosh?

When mars is located in any of the houses shown in the horoscope, the horoscope is said to have "Mangal Dosh".  i.e. if mars is in first house, fourth, seventh, eighth or twelfth house person is having "Mangal Dosh".

Why is it considered as a drawback during marriage?

mars affects the 4th, 7th & 8th house from the house in which it is placed.  This is called "Mangal Drushti".

mars is a planet which is representative of fire, electricity, chemicals, weapons, aggression, high energy, blood, fight, accident etc... Let's see what are the repercussions of mars located in these houses.  Whichever house it is located or has its drushti, effects of Mangal are experienced in the aspects of life represented by that house.

1) 1st house: if mars is placed in the 1st house it will affect 4th, 7th & 8th house in addition to 1st.  1st house represents the personality of the person, hence person may be very short tempered.  4th house represents the house, vehicles of the person, hence there is a possibility of problems associated with house & vehicle e.g. accident due to fire, chemicals, electricity etc...7th house represents the Marital Life, spouse & business in partnership, hence there is a possibility of turbulent married life, spouse may be of very hot tempered nature, loss in partnership etc... 8th house represents death, sudden monetary gains etc... hence there is a possibility of fatal accident to the person.  Of course these are very broad guidelines.  Many other angles need to be studied like the overall quality of the horoscope, power of the planets, aspects of the planets etc...

2) 4th House: If it is placed in the 4th house it will affect 7th, 10th & 11th house in addition to 4th house. We have seen effects on 4th & 7th house.  10th house represents career, father, sleep etc... hence there is a possibility of frequent changes/disturbances in the career, sleep disorder, issues with father or even early death of father etc... 11th house indicates the monetary gains in life, hence there is a possibility of losses due to accidents, theft etc...

3) 7th House: mars in 7th house affects 10th, 1st & 2nd house in addition to 7th.  2nd house is the house that gives the idea about the wealth of the person.  It indicates the family of the person & it is also the 8th house from 7th house indicating death of the married life/business in partnership. Hence mars drushti on this house can create issues among the family members, there is a less harmony among the members due to short tempered & aggressive behaviors.  So also there are chances of loss of money.

4) 8th House: It affects 11th, 2nd & 3rd house.  3rd house represents brothers & sisters of a person, the verbal communication skills, voice of the person, achievements of the person.  Hence mars might create tensions among siblings, person may be very rude & arrogant in speaking, might hurt others quite often & may suffer more failures than successes.

5) 12th House: mars in 12th house affects 3rd, 6th & 7th house.  12th house indicates the spending nature of the person.  Hence person may be of over spending nature.  6th house indicates diseases, thefts due to servants, maternal uncle etc...person is likely to have diseases caused due to acidity, hyper tension,  blood diseases etc...

Thus you will observer that if the mars is troublesome in these houses which affect the married life substantially.  Hence horoscope with Mangal Dosh is treated unsuitable.




What precaution is to be taken while checking the position of the mars in the horoscope?

  • First & foremost the horoscope MUST be "Bhavachalit Kundali" & not the genaral Lagna Kundali.
  • It is advisable to consult an expert Astrologer in taking decision in case of Mangal Dosh.


Under what circumstances the "Mangal Dosh" is not considered "Dosh"?

  1. If mars is "Neech" i.e. in Cancer
  2. If mars is in the enemy house i.e. in Gemini or Virgo,
  3. If mars is "Astangat" extinguished  i.e. near Sun.
  4. If mars is in Aries in 1st house
  5. If mars is in Scorpion in 4th house
  6. If mars is in Capricorn in 7th house
  7. If mars is in Leo in 8th house
  8. If mars is in Sagittarius in 12th house.

Under what circumstances mars is treated as Mild?

If  mars is receiving drushti from any "Shubh" planet i.e. Jupiter, Venus, Moon & Mercury, it is treated to be a mild "Mangal".

What situations in the horoscope of the spouse is treated as matching with the horoscope having "Mangal Dosh"?

If the horoscope of the spouse has any of the following star positions, it is complementary to the person having "Mangal Dosh" & hence the two can be considered to be match for each other.

  1. If Saturn is in 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th house.
  2. If Saturn is affecting 7th house with " 3rd or 10th Drushti" i.e. if Saturn is in 5th or 10th house.
  3. If Powerful Jupiter (In Cancer, Sagittarius, Pisces or Vargottam, Uchcha Navamansh or swanavamansh etc...),  or Powerful Venus (in Pisces, Taurus or Libra or Vargottam, Uchcha Navamansh, Svanavamansh etc...) is  placed in 1st house,
  4. If 7th house is affected by Jupiter's 5th or 9th drushti i.e. Jupiter is placed in 3rd or 11th house.
  5. If Rahu or Ketu is located in 1st or 7th house.
