Author: VG Subramanian | Last Updated: Sat 28 Sep 2013 2:31:09 PM

Kuja DoshaKuja Dosha, also known as Mangal Dosha, is shrouded with mystery. Some believe Manglik Dosha destroys married life completely, while others dispute it and call it an astrological hoax. Astrologer VG Subramanian has years of experience and knows the hidden truth. He reveals the mystery of Kuja Dosha in this article.

What is Mangal Dosha?

Mangal Dosha or Kuja Dosha is an astrological drawback which occurs in any natal horoscope due to the placement of the planet Mars in some specific houses. Planet Mars is also known as Mangal or Kuja in the ancient Sanskrit language. Mangal Dosha is present when Mars is deposited in the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th and 12th house of a person’s horoscope. Among the twelve houses in a person’s astrological chart, the presence of planet Mars in any of these mentioned six houses would cause Mangal Dosha. It is also known by the name of Kuja Dosham, Sevvai Dosham or Angarakha Dosham.

Does Kuja Dosha Really Pass on Any Evil Effect?

No planet is totally benefic or malefic in nature. Mars is the only planet which induces aggression in human life. Its effects totally depend on its placement position. There is this belief among all of us that Mars alone can harm couples while other planets cannot.

The answer is that there are some people who unnecessarily define the evil effects of Mars without even considering the most important points related to the nature of Mars - Its lordship of houses which signify benefic or malefic effects by way of owning them? Whether the intensity of Mangal Dosha remains same when it occupies any of the 12 signs of the Zodiac? Does Mars Dosha indicates only the loss of partner or widowhood? Can't it create any other troubles in the married life? Planets which are associated with Mars or aspecting Mars mitigate the evil effects when Mars is posited in unfavourable houses? Contrary to above, if no such dosha is present in both the horoscopes, is there any surety for guaranteed happy and harmonious married life for a longer period? We can keep on adding similar points to evaluate logically and remove the prevailing old ideas.

Does Kuja Dosha Really Destroy Marital Life?

Mars affects the 4th, 7th & 8th house from the house in which it is placed. This is called "Mangal Drushti". Planet Mars symbolises weapons, karakas fire, high energy, electricity, aggression, chemical, accident, blood and fight. Let's see all the possible effects of Mars located in these houses. The effects of Mars are experienced in life depending upon the significations represented by the house it is located in or have its Drushti (aspect) on.

1st house: Lagna denotes health, longevity and the personality of the person. As Lagna will be the 7th (maraka) house to the 7th which indicates partner so, lagna also indicates the maraka or the end of life of the partner.

2nd house: The second house denotes the family happiness. This house is 8th to the 7th and indicates danger and other difficulties to the partner.

4th House: The 4th house signifies domestic environment. As per our sages, evils occupying a sign which is either 4th or 8th from a bhava (house), spoils the bhava. Hence, Mars in 4 would cause evil effects to the Ascendant. (i.e. health and belongings of the native.)

7th House: It indicates the legal bondage, health and longevity of both the partners. It also tells whether they will have good mutual understanding or not. Characteristics of the partners are also denoted by 7th house. Hence, positioning of Mars in 7th house does not allow the pleasure of these benefits.

8th house: It indicates the difficulties of the native, finance and the fortune of the partner along with their longevity. Moreover, 8th house is called “Mangalya Sthana”, also known as the duration of married life. Therefore, Mars placed in this house is considered evil.

12th house: Presence of Mars in 12th house affects 3rd, 6th & 7th houses. 12th house indicates the spending nature of the person, the real pleasure which the partners derive, the deception, the loss etc. 6th house indicates diseases, chances of thefts by servants etc. Person is likely to have diseases caused due to acidity, hypertension, blood diseases etc.

Thus, you will notice that if the planet Mars is posited in these houses, it would cause adverse effects to the married life substantially by creating hurdles and turmoil which sometimes lead to separation and divorce. Professional troubles and financial loss are also indicated by Sevvai Dosham. Hence, horoscope with it cannot be overruled lightly.

Precautions Needed While Checking Kuja Dosha In Your Horoscope?

The first and foremost step, the horoscope must be analysed with "Bhava Chalit Kundali" and not with the general Lagna Kundali. It is suggested to take the opinion of an expert Astrologer before taking any decision in case of Mangal Dosh. Mars holds following three types of placements in any Horoscope:

  • There is dosha in the horoscope without any modification
  • There is dosha in the horoscope with modification and mitigation
  • There is no dosha at all

These are very broad guidelines. For the correct match various other points of Mars dosha need to be studied like the overall quality of the chart, strength of the planets and aspects of the planets.

As per KP system, difference of opinion, disagreement, dispute, divorce etc., are not only related with the planet Mars alone, but any planet can cause such undesired results, if they happen to be placed in such a position. The sub-lord of the planet is the significator of 6 or 10 or 12 or the sub-lord is posited in the constellation, the lord of which is the significator of 6 or 10 or 12. If the same planet is also a significator of 2 or 7 or 11, then it will only be for a short term period and the couple unites again.

If the sub-lord is either Mars or if it is in the constellation of Mars and signifying either 6 or 10 or 12, there will be violence and separation.

Effect of Mars in 21st Century

Indeed, in the modern era, we need to modify our general behaviour for global survival and to come up in day to day life with some essential qualities. For instance,

  • Fighting spirit which helps in coming out of difficult situations and dealing with stress.
  • Mars imparts aggression which is very much essential while handling new challenges.
  • Mangal Dosha never keep oneself as a lazy person and makes them very enthusiastic and industrious to keep her/him busy in something or other constructively.
  • It maintains leadership qualities like discipline, ables administration and concrete decision making, to become a successful leader. Surgeon, general, air marshal, admiral, president/prime minister of a country, businessman etc. are gifted products of Mars.

Hence, the impact of Mars in the modern life would be a vital tool which is very much needed to overcome our routine problems.

Remedies for Kuja Dosha (How to mitigate its bad effects?)

One needs not to worry about the ill-effects as there are certain Kuja Dosha remedies that can help in cancelling the negative influence of Mars. There are certain rituals and mantras which can be followed. Various possible ways to cancel out the ill-effects of Kuja Dosha are enlisted here:

  1. Fasting to pacify Mars
  2. Reciting Mantras
  3. Kumbh Vivah
  4. Visiting the Navagraha and Hanuman temples
  5. Offerings and contributions
  6. Wearing gemstones in the form of rings

Kuja Dosha Remedy #1 - Fasting: Fasting on Tuesdays is considered an effective remedy. Manglik people who observe fast on this day should eat only toor daal (split pigeon daal).

Kuja Dosha Remedy #2 - Chanting: Manglik individuals should chant the Navagraha mantra as it is known as the Mangal Mantra on Tuesdays. They can also chant Gayatri mantra 108 times in a day or Hanuman Chalisa on daily basis.

Kuja Dosha Remedy #3 - Kumbh Vivah: If one person is Manglik in case of marriage then the negative effects of Mangal dosha can be cancelled by performing this ritual called "Kumbh Vivah". According to Hindu Vedic Astrology, a Manglik person first marries either a Banana tree, Peepal tree, or a silver/golden idol of Lord Vishnu.

Kuja Dosha Remedy #4 - Pujas in Temples: Visiting Navagraha temple reduces the ill-effects caused by Mangal Dosha. However, only a few temples in India are dedicated to Lord Mangal. The most popular of them are located in Tamil Nadu. Some are located in Guwahati, Assam. Performing these pujas on Tuesdays is very effective to reduce the ill effects of Mars dosha. Visiting Lord Hanuman's temple is also considered good. Other than all these alternatives, one can offer vermilion and sweets. They can also light a ghee lamp in the temple.

Kuja Dosha Remedy #5 - Offerings / Contributions: Making contributions on Tuesdays is considered as a remedy for Manglik individuals. Some objects that are considered as items that should be offered to please Mars are swords or knives, food that is made of red lentil daal (masoor daal), wheat breads, red silks, and red stones such as corals.

Kuja Dosha Remedy #6 - Gemstones: Wear a golden ring with a bright red coral in the ring finger of the right hand. However, it is advisable to get the horoscope analyzed thoroughly by a trusted astrologer before wearing it.

Kuja Dosha Remedy #7 - Marriage between two Manglik individuals: If both the partners are Mangliks then Sevvai Dosham gets nullified. All its ill-effects are cancelled and the two can have a blessed and happy married life.

Kuja Dosha Remedy #8 - Placement of Mars: Astrologers also claim that if the first house falls in Aries or Mesh in one’s horoscope, and if Mars or Mangal resides in this house then the Mangal Dosha is no longer effective, as Mars is present in its own house i.e. Aries.

Hence, no need to panic on Manglik Dosha and one can prolong a happy and harmonious married life for a longer period of time by ways of mitigating Mars through above said remedial suggestions.
