Are you A Manglik?

The Mangal Dosha is an astrological condition that takes place when the planet Mars is in the 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th house as per the ascendant chart of the Vedic astrology. A girl or a boy that is born under these conditions is considered a Manglik.

Being under the effect of this condition is considered to have a negative effect on marriage and is likely to cause problems in the relationship such as disharmony among the couple, or sometimes even pre-mature death. The only situation in which the devastating effects can be negated is if two mangliks marry each other.

Please remember that if you are under the effects of the Mangal Dosha, there is nothing to be afraid of. It is completely alright to be a manglik and they are normal people like anybody else. There is always a solution to any problem and there are a number of factors that impact the intensity of the this condition and also benefit by cancelling the major negative effects it is deemed to have on people.

According to Parashara, who was a leading Vedic astrologer from back in the ages; he writes in his book the Brihat Parasara Hora Shastra, that “If Mars is placed in the lagna, 12th, 4th, 7th and 8th houses, without any aspect or conjunction of the benefic planets, then the husband of such a woman will certainly have an early death”. This has been quoted in the 47th verse of Chapter 81 of his book.

In addition to this, the book goes and says that “If a woman with the widowhood yoga marries a man with a similar yoga of loss of spouse, then such yoga will get cancelled.”

This elaborates that if there is an aspect of benefic or conjunction with a benefic in the planet Mars, the effects of the manglik dosha are nullified.

The farther of Vedic astrology explains that a bride or groom with this condition can marry someone with the same condition and have no effects from it.

It is also believed that the Manglik effects remain only till the age of 28 after which they are significantly less. Thus, many modern astrologers also recommend that such boys and girls marry only after a certain age to be on a safer side.
