Manglik/ Kuja Dosha/ Bhauma dosha

ॐ श्री गुरावे नमः !
ॐ नमः शिवाय!

Apart from so many beautiful things in the Vedic Astrology, there are few things like Manglik (Mars effect) Kuja DoSha or Bhauma DoSha, which is like a morsel stuck in the throat, which puts people in a very difficult spot, to swallow or to spit.

Manglik or Kuja DoSha in simple definition would mean a condition created by the position of Mars in a natives horoscope, and this condition is mostly highlighted during marriage proposals etc, A person particularly a women is labeled Manglik gets into a difficult socket where no marriage proposals come their way ( A Situation in India or similar cultures).

Are you Manglik? I have heard this many times, the parents try to hide the fact that their daughter or son is Manglik, the main reason for such a act is ignorance and wrong propaganda by few misdirected Astrologers for obvious reasons.

Let us see what exactly this Manglik or Kuja doSha is and how one can avoid this social impediment.

The Graha/Planet responsible for such a condition is Mars, Mars, we have already seen is a natural Malefic and the properties of a positive Mars are Ambition, Action, Desire, Passion, Fire element, Leadership, Army chief, Strength, Summer season, and the properties of a negative Mars are Aggression, Anger, Violence, Tamasic, Bitter taste, Warriors, Over sex drive, Accident, Bleeding, Weapons, Operations and Blood Red color.

Mars as such is a Malefic Graha, and if it is negative Mars meaning afflicted or badly placed or inauspicious, the properties of such a Mars are highlighted in a native in a very negative way, where the Native might express himself/herself in a very negative way, and this attitude or behavior if projected by one partner in a wedlock the boat starts to rock, and this is the only reason why a person with badly placed Mars is not preferred in a marriage with a person whose Mars is weak or moderate.

Let us see which position for Mars is favorable and not favorable, the first house or Sign with lagna describes a persons character and personality, 4th house or sign signifies relations, 7th house/sign signifies marriage or spouse, 8th house/sign signifies health of marriage, then the 12th house, the house of loss, in south India 2nd house/sign is also considered, which effects speech.

The above given places are the first level of consideration, then second level is to see if the so called house/sign is afflicted by bad Dhristi from a malefic Graha, Rahu, Ketu or it is devoid of good effects.

Once it is known if the Mars is auspicious or inauspicious, then the third level is to see the Dasha or its period, particularly the Antara dasha, and if the inauspicious Mars Antara Dasha is in a unfavourable Graha Mahadasha, things could turn very bad, and in a favourable Graha Mahadasha, then things could be moderate to bad :-).

Let us take each position and see their effect:

Mars in the 1st house - Mars is a planet of action and would behave like an Army chief, so such a behaviour in Ascendant would make a person bold, aggressive, or too dominating.

He/she might want to lead his/her own way in his/her family, with little attention to what others are saying and being in First house Mars will also aspect, 4th, 7th and 8th house, effecting all these three houses, which have to do with Relations, Spouse, and health of Marriage, apart from it If this Mars ends up with Upa Pada Lagna or in 7th or 8th from it then it will hurt the longevity of marriage also.

Mars in the 4th house - Same effect in house of Relations, particularly with the family members and youngsters.

Mars in 7th house - The house of Spouse, An afflicted Mars in 7th house is bound to cause some serious problem in terms of compatibility and tempers might flare up causing trouble in relations, separation.

Mars in 8th House - The 8th house tells you about the health of a Marriage, a benefic Graha/Planet in this house would help the relation and a malefic would harm the relation, so if a afflicted Mars is present in this house, the relationship might not survive, but always look for saving grace in terms of 2nd, 5th, 10th, 11th house Graha or influence.

Mars in 12th House - This is the house, which is responsible for bed pleasures, so the relation might suffer due to lack of it or excess of it.

Remedies for Kuja DoSha:

Look for a partner who is equally Manglik, or whose Mars is stronger.

If Mars is in 2nd house in any of the signs of Mercury, i.e., Gemini or Virgo’s.

If Mars is in 4th house in own sign, i.e., Aries or Scorpio.
If Mars is in 7th house in exaltation or debilitation, i.e., Capricorn or Cancer.
If Mars is in 8th house in any of the signs of Jupiter, i.e., Sagittarius or Pisces.
If Mars is in 12th house in any of the signs of Venus, i.e., Taurus or Libra.
If Mars is in Aquarius or Leo.

Basically no house is left after these statements :-))

Another very important Graha, which can counter Mars, is Jupiter, but it should be strong and well placed, then there is the maturity of Mars, Mars matures at the age of 28 years so wait until 28 years and then marry.

 If the Mars dasha is over then the effects will be different, check the transit chart for the position of Mars and deduce its effect, it can always be avoided.

Inauspicious Mars in 3rd house can cause problems to one's mother.

Inauspicious Mars in 9th house can cause problems in Dharma and to one's father.

Inauspicious Mars in 10th house can also cause similar problems to one's profession, career, and authority.

Inauspicious Mars in 11th house can also cause similar problems to one's financial dealings and relations with elders.

So which house is left without problems, doesn't it mean that more than the position the auspiciousness and inauspiciousness of the Graha Mars is important, so Mars can be a boon and a bane also, it is always a problem for a native to handle the effects of Mars if they are strong, to understand better we have to see the social status of the native.

If the native is a Army official and with a very week Mars, he is bound to have problems with his subordinates, and if his Mars is strong and placed in 10th position, he can be brutal and uncompromising, same situation if arises in a family relation of a spousal relation, imagine the result, so the condition of Mars is always important, which can be mellowed down by enhancing the Graha Jupiter, with a Gemstone like Yellow Sapphire or a red coral, like most married women in India wear a Mangal sutra with one red coral added every year, Meditation, Pranayama, Education, Prayer, Spiritual life, Food, Spices all can reduce the Mars effect.

If your Mars is in one of the 12 houses/signs ;-) take it easy, it does not make you Manglik or not suitable for marriage, try to relax and find out why you love your partner, the key is in your understanding and your mind, how you react and take each and every aspect of your life, there is nothing impossible if you are determined and if God's blessing are available, no Graha can do anything. ;-)

Once Saturn/Sani descends on Shivaloka and informs lord Shiva that it is time he take Lord Shiva in his influence, Lord Shiva is disturbed , How can a Graha effect me, I am the mighty Shiva, so to avoid Saturn, Lord Shiva goes deep into earth and hides himself in a very secluded and dark place with cobwebs and dirt.

The day passes without any incident, Lord shiva returns to his abode and calls Saturn to ask," What happened why didn't you influence me yesterday as it was your duty, did you fail in your duty", he expresses this with a smile.

Saturn: responds, well Deva (God) it was my influence which made you run and hide in such a dirty and secluded place, other wise tell me why would you even care to go there.

Lord Shiva is stunned!

Moral: If Lord Shiva is not free from effect of Graha, how can we be free, it is a part of the game on this arena called Earth, take it easy and live your life, but do not forget to pray lord Hanuman ji or Lord Shiva to reduce the effects, the Prayer works like Pain killer.

Note: Mars in a Aries (Moola trikona-own house), Scorpio (Own House) and Capricorn (House of Exaltation) or as a ruler, or in kendra 1st, 4th, 7th and 10th from Moon or Lagna givens one of the Panch Maha Purush Yoga, That is Ruchaka Maha Purusha Yoga.
