Humans can have some unhealthy impacts on their lives due to planet positioning. In Hindu astrology, Mangal Dosha occurs when the position of planet Mars (Mangal Graha) is in the 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th and 12th house in a person’s horoscope. A person who is born in the above circumstances is termed to be mangalik. Mangal Dosha is also known by the other names like Bhom Dosha, Kuja Dosha, or Angarakha Dosha. Mangal Dosha can affect all irrespective of gender, class, caste or religion.

Mars is known to be a hot planet that acts adversely on our horoscopes. Its nature is that of a brave individual which can become unmerciful and rash. Mars is a planet that can become violent at the slightest instigation. It can be as powerful as to create havoc and can be as auspicious as possible for our lives.

On the positive aspect, the planet is also known to provide energy and self-assurance. Whereas, on the negative aspect, the same planet can bring about conflict, aggression, violence and disaster. The planet is believed to bring about premature death if the person is affected by mangal dosha. This dosha usually influences the married lives by creating complications and chaos, sometimes leading to break-up and also divorce. Financial issues and professional anxiety are also caused by Mangal Dosha.

When the planet is placed in the 1st house the character of the person may be very aggressive and short tempered. If the planet is placed in the 4th house, that indicates that there can be problems associated with house, vehicle, accident due to fire, chemicals, electricity etc. However, if in the 7th house, there could be a possibility of obstacles in marital life with spouse, partnership etc. 8th house suggests that there is a possibility of fatal accident. So, the placement of Mars can be considered as a drawback.

One who is a victim of Mangal Dosha or is a mangalik has probably seen the change in the facial expression just after the mention. You may have been judged on the basis of being a mangalik.

However, it is important to sort out the negative effects of this dosha. Otherwise, there could be adverse effects in your lives. There are secured remedies in order to cancel the adversity of Mangal.

People are of the view that the negative consequences for a single-mangalik marriage can be settled if the mangalik performs a kumbh-vivah that is marry a banana tree, a peepal tree or a silver or gold idol of a Hindu God Vishnu. But, there is no scientific, theoretical or practical proof to it.


Marriage between the two mangaliks is one such solution. If the individuals are mangliks, then it is believed that this dosha gets cancelled. It is said that all the negative consequences get nullified and the couple can have a happy and blessed married life.

Chanting of the Navgraha mantra by the manglik individuals on Tuesdays is one of the effective solutions. Such individuals should also chant the gayatri mantra and the hanuman chalisa 108 times a day.
