Saturn, Mars, Rahu, Ketu and Sun are considered as cruel planets in the Vedic Astrology. Afflicting the birth horoscope of a person, Mars is considered as the cruelest planet of all. Mars is the most damaging planet in the married life if it’s placed unfavorably.
In a Kundali when Mars is positioned in the first, second, fourth, seventh, eighth or twelfth house, it causes Mangal Dosha. Mangal Dosha should be checked in the Moon chart and Venus chart along with Lagna chart. If none of the three charts are afflicted by Mars, a person is considered to be ‘Non-Manglik’. ‘Kuja Dosha’ and ‘Bhauma Dosha’ are popular names given to Mangal Dosha. A person carrying Mangal Dosha is pronounced as ‘Manglik’.
While evaluating Mangal Dosha, North Indian astrologers don't consider the second house. Whereas, South Indian astrologers don't consider the first house while evaluating Mangal Dosha in a birth horoscope.
However, while evaluating Mangal Dosha, there is a harmony that both the houses should be considered. While evaluating Mangal Dosha, mPanchnag likes to consider the first as well as the second house.
Due to various combinations of Mars and other planets, many Kundalis are found carrying Mangal Dosha but in most of them Mangal Dosha gets cancelled after considering the house position of Mars and other planets in the birth chart.
In case, Mangal Dosha is found, then all the combinations which nullifies the Dosha, are kept into consideration. All the commonly and widely used rules are followed by mPanchang Mangal Dosha Calculator.
