Mangal Dosha- What are its effects? Does it have any remedies?

Sanjana Mahendru

Being born into a Hindu family, Mangal Dosh is the second most important thing to witness in your kundali after “Gun Milan” for marriage. A person with mangal dosh is known as a manglik. According to Hindu astrology, “every planet has its own influence on a person and affects both their appearance and their character.” Mars, or Mangal, is a planet of energy, protection, aggression, discipline, passion, and intelligence. Mars is like a soldier or commander who protects and provides, but at the same time is very short-tempered, arrogant, and argumentative.

What is Mangal Dosha, and how does it affect our career, health, and marriage? If the planet Mars is present in the first, fourth, seventh, eighth, or twelfth house of their birth chart, a person is considered a Manglik. Is it appropriate to think of it as a dosha? No, there are both beneficent and malefic results of being Manglik. It mostly affects our relationships and behavior with other people, and this is why it is considered malefic.

Additionally, depending on the house in which it is located, Mars (mangal) has diverse effects on your life. People get worried about mangal dosha effects after marriage, especially in the case of girls. There are beliefs that say your spouse dies when a Manglik person marries a non-Manglik person. Therefore, we will now go into more detail about the cancellation, effects, and remedies of Manglik dosha.

In what circumstances does Mangal Dosha get canceled?

The placement of Mars in conjunction with other planets results in the cancellation of Manglik dosha. Yes, you heard that right! Here are the ways in which a person’s Manglik dosha gets nullified:

  • If Saturn is placed in conjunction with Mars in the same house, i.e., the 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th, and 12th, the mangal dosha gets canceled.
  • When Mars is in Aries in the 1st house, Scorpio in the 4th house, Pisces in the 7th house, Aquarius in the 8th house, and Sagittarius in the 12th house, malefic effects get nullified. The person becomes very successful, wealthy, and courageous in life even when Mars is in its own sign (Aries or Scorpio) and the sun is aspecting it.
  • When either Jupiter or Venus is strong in the first or seventh house, mangal dosha is eliminated.
  • If Mars is retrograde in the 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th, and 12th houses, Mangal dosha doesn’t last.

Mangal Dosha Effects

When Mars is in the first house, the person is really aggressive or short-tempered, fearless, ambitious, and a risk-taker. They will always find their way to achieve whatever they want in life, but at the same time, they are not so attractive. However, they must take care of their health. Depression, head injuries or accidents, hemorrhages (especially in the brain), skin disorders, anemia, and indigestion are some health issues majorly addressed in such people. They may mistreat their mother or indulge in frequent arguments or conflicts with their partner, indicating a strained relationship between the two.

Effects after marriage: A person with Mangal Dosh is likely to support their spouse in their ambitions, but they are also dominant in nature and intolerant of lies and blandishments as well. Their nature is really protective, caring, and empathetic. But the spouse may sometimes feel a lack of attention or appreciation from their partner. Additionally, Mars in the first house increases a person’s sexual urge.

When Mars is in the fourth house, the person is extremely charismatic, beautiful (or handsome), creative, filled with anger, and argumentative. Such people are assertive, more determined, and primarily focused on their workplace. However, they always want to jump into new challenges (or even create them) and work hard to achieve them in life. They rarely focus on what others say because they are short-tempered and lack sufficient knowledge.

Effects after marriage: A person with Mangal Dosh doesn’t think much about other people’s sentiments, and sometimes they might bring out their aggression in a really disrespectful manner. Constant fights and a lack of understanding may become part of their relationship.

Mars in the 7th house indicates someone who is violent, outraged, fiercely loyal, and realistic. They are not really deep in emotions and are dominating, but they do their best to fulfill everyone’s wishes close to them. Such people are more likely to be blessed with huge abundance in life (by birth or through intelligence), like property, cars, successful businesses, and much more.

Effects after marriage: There may be chances of separation within the first 10 years because of the violence and lack of understanding in the marriage. They are way too practical; therefore, their chances of receiving emotional support and assurance are diminished.

When Mars is in the 8th house, the person is daring, passionate, energetic, and aggressive. They have an unpleasant manner of speaking and behaving, and they tend to be controlling and aggressive. There is fear of losing parental property and assets (if they have any). Even though they face so many hardships, these people often end up with a lot of success and riches because of their perseverance. However, due to their bad behavior, they experience loneliness and don’t have many friends.

Effects after marriage: Such people and their partners go through misunderstandings, huge fights, and hardships in life. In a few cases, they or their partner might die in sudden accidents.

When Mars is in the 12th house, the person is a daydreamer, aggressive, highly energetic, and a lover of solitude. Such people work very hard (but secretly) and experience delays in their marriages and careers.

Effects after marriage: They are not so loyal, and they have a great urge for sexual pleasures in their lives. They bring frustration and misunderstandings into marriage and are not satisfied with their partner.

Remedies for Mangal Dosha

The malefic effects of mangal dosha are scary and life-threatening in a few cases. Knowing how to remove the Manglik dosha from a girl or boy is important. Here are the remedies for Mangal Dosha:

  • Marriage of a Manglik girl with a Manglik boy In such circumstances, the Manglik dosha gets canceled.
  • After taking a bath in the early morning, offer water to the sun daily.
  • Worshiping Lord Hanuman and chanting the Mangal mantra or Navagraha mantra will help in reducing or removing malefic effects. Reading Bajrang Baan or Hanuman Chalisa will make better changes.
  • Wearing pearl (moti) or opal after taking guidance from an experienced astrologer is also beneficial.
  • Fasting on Tuesday and later going to Hanuman Mandir for puja is beneficial.
  • Performing Manglik Pooja before or even after getting married will also remove malefic effects.

Being a Manglik is neither good nor bad; it depends on where Mars falls in your birth chart. Despite the negative effects of being Manglik, one can overcome them with the right remedies and rituals. A friendly piece of advice for all the Mangliks is to keep a check on their behavior, control their aggression, and manage their relationships wisely. Additionally, non-Mangliks who choose to marry a Manglik must be aware of the traits and characteristics they may face in the future.
