Astrologers believe that, Mars or Mangal which is the fourth planet or grah from the Sun, is the sign of power, potential, courage and invasion. It is named after the “God of War” and often named as “Red Planet” due to the boldness in nature. Astrologically Mars is symbolized as cruel or harsh planet. As per astrology if the placement of Mars or Mangal Grah is in the 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th house then this results in the Mangalik Dosh.
Nature of people having Manglik Dosh:
1. Mangal Dosh is a sign of negativity as it means intolerance, competition, argument, collision, dominion, narrow-mindedness, clash and debates 2. Mangal Dosh affects marital life and causes mental and physical torture in marriage. 3. It causes delay in marriage. 4. In some cases, Mangaliks are victimized in marriage.
There are number of reasons why these Houses have been given importance in match-making.
The 1st house represents the ascendant. It describes the personality, aggressiveness and nature of the native as he faces the outside world, and also his physical appearance. If Mars is situated in this House, it leads to unnecessary conflicts in married life due to unacceptable behavior; also such person might suffer from tension, distress, separation or even divorce.
The Second House represents ‘Kutumb’ (family). Placement of Mars in the Second House may cause problems in adjustment with the family. It also creates obstacles in the married life and the professional life.
The Fourth House represents the comforts. Placement of Mars in the Fourth House can have adverse effects in professional life. Such person will switch jobs but do not get success.
The Seventh House is the House of marriage, but it encompasses all one-to-one relationships: marriage, business, partners, contracts and corporate relationships. If Mars is in the Seventh House may create misunderstandings in marital life and corporate life.
The Eighth House is the House of ‘Ayu’ (longevity) and also the ‘Suhaag Bhava’ (House indicating longevity of marriage). Hence, placement of Mars in this House indicates danger to self as well as spouse. There is possibility of being left all alone from elders or the person loses his part from his paternal property.
The Twelfth House is the House of marital happiness and placement of Mars in this House is also not considered good. In marital life the partner may not be compatible with each other, causing variance between them.
Mangal Dosh leads to many obstacles in marriage, instability in married life, change in behavior of partner, person become unfaithful to spouse, responsible for fights between couples, incompatible and inadequate longevity of spouse, low adjustment capability, lack of satisfaction with own spouse and hence lead to illegal extra marital affairs.
Due to above mentioned effects, before getting married, people usually prefer for Kundli-Matching through which astrologers predict about the couples married life pros and cons. If Mangal Dosh is seem to be effective on them, than astrologers suggest performing ways to negate the ill-effects of Mangal Dosh. The elimination of Mangal Dosh is one of the lengthiest and specialized procedures in Astrology.
