If the Mangal is in a very bad position it can also cause death of the spouse. As per vedic astrology Manglik is not a good situation in a horoscope, so let us find ways and means to overcome this issue
What is Mangal Dosha?
Mangal is the Hindi name for Mars. It is a very important planet as per astrology and people who have it in their 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th house of the horoscope are considered to be suffering from the mangal dosha. These people are also called Manglik. .
However, to ensure that this condition does not have a very bad effect on the life of the people there are some remedies that are recommended by the experts and must be followed. The degree of Mangal dosha also changes from person to person.
Some people are very badly affected by the Mangal dosha and for some the influence of Mangal dosha is lesser than the others. According to how strong a Manglik you are the remedies are suggested by the experts.
Some current examples
Many people actually do not take the Mangal dosha seriously but the experts are of the opinion that it is not a good thing to have in a horoscope and the remedies are a must. If a person is a manglik it is mandatory that he or she gets married to a manglik itself else the marriage can have very bad results.
For example the very popular actress Rekha is a Manglik and most of her marriages have had very bad results and even death of her husbands. The experts are of the opinion that no matter what science says the fact is Mangal dosha is a reality and it must be dealt with else the person can never enjoy a good marriage.
Few years back Aishwarya Rai was in news as she was performing the remedies for Mangal dosha. Many people thought it was ridiculous but the astrologers feel that it was required to ensure that her marriage with Abhishek lasts.
The planet Mars
Mars is supposed to be the deity of war. The planet is red in colour symbolizing blood and that is why it is considered to be a very ferocious planet and is always engaged in fights. The people who have mars in a ruling position are very commanding and seldom want to adjust.
The Mangal dosha is considered to be worse for women than it is for men. However, both a man as well a woman with Mangal dosha must perform the required remedies to ensure that they have good marriage and that gives them peace and stability. Mars is often associated with passion and anger as a result people who have Mars in a dominating position suffer from hypertension even at a younger age.
Why those having Mangal dosha are advised to marry late? Well the reason is that after the age of 28 the effects of Mangal on the horoscope start to reduce as a result it ensures that those who have Mangal dosha get a better chance to have a proper marriage.
Remedies for Mangal dosha
You must worship the Lord Mangal. So that he keeps his blessings on you. Tuesday is the day to worship the lord Mangal. There is a mantra that you need to chant in order to please the lord.
