Mangal Dosha – Manglik Dosh in Astrology
Mangal Dosh, often referred to as Manglik Dosh, is a concept in Vedic astrology that plays a significant role in marriage matchmaking. Here’s an attempt to explain it in simple terms.
Mangal Dosh is said to occur when the planet Mars (“Mangal” in Hindi) is in certain houses of the astrological birth chart, specifically the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th, or 12th house of a person’s lunar chart. Mars is a planet associated with fiery energy, war, and aggression. When it is positioned in these houses, it’s believed to create conditions that can cause discord in marital life, delay in marriage, and other related issues.
The term “Manglik” is used for a person who has the Mangal Dosh in their birth chart. There’s a traditional belief that if a Manglik marries a non-Manglik, it can cause harm or even death to the non-Manglik partner, hence the saying “A Manglik should marry another Manglik.”
However, these beliefs and the extent of their effects vary widely and it’s important to consider that these are part of a complex system of astrology that should be interpreted by an experienced astrologer for the full picture.
In ancient astrological scriptures, Mars has always been given a special place. The “Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra”, a fundamental text for Vedic astrology, specifies Mars as a “cruel” planet, having the potential for disruptive energy when placed unfavorably. It suggests various remedies for mitigating the ill effects of Mangal Dosh, including specific prayers, rituals, and even the recommendation of marrying a person with similar astrological configurations.
