Manglik / Kuja Dosha in Horoscopes
The ancient classical jyotisa magnum opus Brihat Parasara Hora Shastra mentions Manglik Dosha in quite detail and also gives remedies to thwart off such doshas and gain the benevolence of Mangal or Mars. In a Vedic horoscope, Manglik dosh or Kuja dosha is formed when mars is placed in either ascendant(First House), House of happiness or mental peace(Fourth house),House of marriage(Seventh House), House of longevity(Eighth House) or house of expenditure(Twelfth House).In all these postions Mars acquires special attributes to give problems related to marital life.Manglik dosha occours from Ascendant or Lagna , Lunar Ascendant or Chandra Lagna and from Venus , with the intensity of dosha increasing from Lagna to Venus. People having such manglik doshas from any of all 3 of such references have either consicous or subconscious traits to end up remaining single , since the planet Mars itself has traits of Celibate.No wonder , Hanumanji , an avatar of Lord Shiva , who was a devout celibate for as long as history exsists is worshipped on Tuesdays or Mangalwar , the day of Mars. Mangala Dosha effects the married life of a person in many ways – it creates delays, cheating, hurdles and obstacles in getting married. After marriage, there is physical, mental or financial hardship for one of the partners or both the partners. It causes mutual disputes, allegations and counter allegations and may even lead to disintegration of marriage. If the Dosha is pronounced, one of the partners may remain ill or there may be untimely death of either one or both the partners.
