Mangal dosha is a very common dosha found both equally in men and women and is known by various other names like Chowa dosha, Kuja Dosha, Bhom Dosha or Angarakha Dosha. This is said to occur when the planet Mars falls in the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th house of their Horoscope. When a person is born in this situation then he or she is said to be affected by mangal Dosha.

The mangal dosha by nature effects the marital bliss. It may cause reasonable or unreasonable stress and disharmony amidst a couple. As per its inherent nature, the fiery Mars may cause fierce misunderstandings in a relationship.

It is also called the kuja dosha. In extreme eventuality, this dosha in conjunction with other bad stars situation may even lead to the death of the spouse of the manglik person.

The Mystical Indian text the Lal Kitab provides some remedies to minimise and negate the malefic effect of Manglik Dosha. These are highlighted below for astrology fans.

Lal Kitab Remedies for Mangal Dosha

1.If Mars is present in the ascendant the 1st house, then fill Honey in a Mitti Ki Surahi, this is an earthen pot having a lid; normally uses to store water or wine; and bury it in a remote and unpopulated place.

2.When Mars is present in the 4th house then it is advised to leave the empty sacks in which sugar was packed on the terrace of the house which is believed to nullify Manglika dosha.

3.The presence of Mars in the 7th house involves a remedy of breaking a mud wall which is most commonly built with raw and unprocessed mud.

4.If Mars is situated in the 8th house then heat a Tawa which is used for making rotis and then remove from the fire and sprinkle water over it to make it cold. Practice this remedy as many times as possible.

5.It is also recommended to wear silver in the left hand. Also it is always advisable to get both the male and female with Mangal dosha to be married for the dosha is neutralized.

Counteraction of Manglika dosha takes place when the planet Jupiter unites together in the line of Mars. Mutual or complimentary positioning of both the planets Mars and Rahu in a person's horoscope will also reduce the effects of Mangal dosha. Also presence of Mars in its own house neutralizes the effect. At the time of Jupiter acting as the 8th lord and if Mars is placed in the 8th house then the dosha effects are reduced. Similar is the case with planet Venus for when Venus and Mars are placed at the 12th house then the effect of the dosha on the Mangliks is reduced.
