Kuja Dosha or Mangalik Dosh
What is the Kuja Dosha in Vedic Astrology
Jyotish - The Vedic Astrology of
Lanka India Nepal and Tibet
Whenever Mars is situated in 1,2,4,7,8,12 th house of a Rashi or lunar chart (Moon chart) it is called as "Manglik dosha, Kuja Dosha, Bhom Dosha or Angaraka Dosha, or Manglik Dosh" in Vedic Astrology. Resulting problems in marriage life or partnership situations. The person will also have to endure hardships in the marriage generated by the spouse. As the person with Kuja Dosha does not have the nature to victimize the spouse.
James Braha in his work "Ancient Hindu Astrology for the Modern Western Astrologer" says that, "The effects of Kuja Dosha seems to cause the person to be victimized in the course of his/her marriage and ultimately the person is likely to be end up in divorced or separated and generally through no obvious fault of ones own.
The mechanics of Kuja Dosha are such, it causes the a person with Kuja Dosha to be attracted to a partner who by his/her very nature can not blend or function compatibly for any great length of time with that person.
The way out of Kuja Dosha is for a person with Kuja Dosha to Marry an Another with Kuja Dosha
The most significant problem is that, a person with a Kuja Dosha will not feel much physical attraction to another with Kuja Dosha"
I am a Mangalik or a person with Kuja Dosha, when counted from both Rashi and Janma Lagna's through bitter experience, I can vow for the truthfulness of the word for word of the above statement of James Braha.
So Beware those who are Mangaliks !
Mangalik Dosh effects seems to be more severe in the natal charts, where Mars becomes functional malefic i.e. Virgo, Scorpio and Taurus ascendant charts.
Cancellation of Kuja Dosha
It is not enough to find out whether some one has "Kuja Dosha", the most important part is to find out whether there are other yogas which may counteract and cancel the bad effects of the said yoga and also what remedial measures are available to get relief from the bad effects.
There are ways of cancellation of Kuja Dosha such as If the first house is Aries or Mesha and Mars is in Aries the Kuja Dosha is not effective as Aries is the Own House of Mars.
And some more other such combinations, which you have to consult a competent astrologer to find out.
