The hostile planet, Mars (Mangal), is considered inauspicious for various reasons in Astrology. Astrologers believe that a malefic Mars can have a negative influence not only on marriage, but also on the life post marriage, and hence, it is considered one of the most important parameters in matchmaking. It is believed that this dosha can result in marital failures and this fear largely hampers the mental peace of those suffering from Mangal dosha.

When is Mars malefic for the native?

  • According to Astrology, when the Mars is placed in the 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th and 12th house of the native as an Ascendant, it is said to be inauspicious. It would not be wrong to say that in the above houses, Mars plays the role of a ‘spoilsport’.
  • Moreover, if the malefic Mars is combined with two more malefic planets, it doubles up the harmful effects.
One must note that the effect of Mars is different in all five houses.

  • 7th House: The 7th house deals with marriage. The position of Mars in this house results in unstable mind of the native, restraining the couple from having a cordial relationship. Manglik women mostly end up with aggressive husbands. A malefic Mars can also indulge the native in extra-marital affairs and immoral acts.
  • 8th House: The 8th house signifies longevity, happiness and sorrows of life.
