Mangal Dosha is probably the most infamous Dosha in Vedic astrology. This comes to the forefront the native considers to get married. This Dosha is caused by the fiery nature of the Planet Mars - when it is present in the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th house in the native’s horoscope. Mars can become more malefic when placed with other inauspicious planets in these houses.
A native who has this Dosha is termed a ‘Manglik’.
This Dosha is also called ‘Bhom’, ‘Kuja’ or ‘Angarakha’ Dosha. Both males and females can be afflicted by this Dosha. Since Mars is a hot Planet, it represents ‘ego’, ‘high self-esteem’,’arrogance’ and ‘volatile temperament’. It's for this reason that a native with Mangal Dosha will find it difficult to compromise and adjust with a partner.
Mangal Dosha has other effects on the native-like, burdening him with financial losses.
It is important to channelize the energy of natives with this Dosha constructively as the fire in them needs to be tamed.
