Being born a Manglik, Manglik and Mangal Dosh
When Mangal or Mars, is situated in the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th and 12th house of a person’s Kundali or Horoscope (natal charts), it is called Mangal Dosha. Basically, it is all about the placement of Mars in the houses of the Horoscope in conjunction with the other planetary positions. Such a person is called a Manglik.
Mangal Dosha is said to have the power to have negative effects on a person’s life, health, financial status, and very importantly affect the married life of a person. It is believed that Mangal Dosha is likely to cause tensions and lack of harmony in the marital life. A strong Mangal can affect the spouse’s health and life expectancy. Manglik Dosh is also believed to often lead to a delay in a person’s marriage. Manglik sare said to show aggression, agitation and rude behavior. Mangal Doshacan affect important relationships in the lives of Mangliks.
Mangal Dosha is considered to be a very serious issue among the Hindus and Mangliks often find it a challenge finding a suitable life partner. It is widely believed that if a Manglik marries a non-Manglik, the Mangal Dosha of the Manglik is likely to cause accidents, disabilities or even death of theirnon-Manglik spouse.
Some people believe that there are ways / upaayas to reduce and ward off most of the negative effects of the Mangal Dosha. Some of the upaayas are chanting the Navgrah Mantra on Tuesdays, wearing a red coral gem in a ring, chanting the Hanuman Chalisa on Tuesdays, and fasting on Tuesdays. Another belief is that if a Manglik girl is married to a peepal or a banana tree / a gold or silver idol of Lord Vishnu, the Mangal Dosha is reduced and the subsequent marriage is safe from the ill-effects of her Mangal Dosha. It is also widely believed that a Manglik is best married to another Manglik, as, in such a marriage the Mangal Dosha is nullified. It is also believed that if a Manglik is born on a Tuesday, Mangal’s negative effects get cancelled out.

Indian Hindus consider weddings to be affected by a confluence of the planetary positions and the influences of both the prospective life partners.
