The term ‘manglik’ causes a great deal of concern when it comes to an Indian marriage. A Manglik person — or one with Mangal Dosha — is believed to face problems in his/her marital life, especially if married to a non-Manglik individual.

The effect of Mars

Saturn, Mars, Rahu and Ketu are considered malefic, or detrimental planets in Vedic Astrology. Afflicting the birth horoscope of a person, Mars is considered as the cruelest planet of all and thought to be the most damaging for married life, if placed unfavourably. But the placement of Mars in different houses in a person’s natal chart or kundali can also have different effects on an individual’s life.

Are you a Manglik?

When Mars is positioned in the first, second, fourth, seventh, eighth or twelfth house in a kundali, 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 other popular names for Mangal Dosha.

North Indian astrologers don't consider the second house, while South Indian astrologers don't consider the first house while evaluating Mangal Dosha in a birth horoscope. However, mPanchnag likes to take into account both the first and second houses while evaluating Mangal Dosha.

Due to various combinations of Mars and other planets, the effect of Mangal Dosha in many kundalis found carrying the same gets cancelled after considering the house positions of Mars and other planets in the birth chart. In case a Mangal Dosha is found, all the combinations that nullify the Dosha, are taken into consideration. All such rules used by expert astrologers are followed by mPanchang Mangal Dosha Calculator to give you an accurate prediction.
