Mangal Dosha, also known as Kuja Dosha or Manglik Dosha, is a concept in Vedic astrology that is believed to have an adverse effect on a person’s marital life.
In Vedic astrology, Mars (also known as Mangal) is considered a planet of passion, aggression, and energy. If Mars is placed in certain houses in a person’s birth chart (specifically, the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th, or 12th houses), it is believed to cause Mangal Dosha.
People with Mangal Dosha are believed to face difficulties in their married life, including delay in marriage, disharmony in the relationship, or even separation or divorce. It is believed that a person with Mangal Dosha should ideally marry another person with Mangal Dosha, or perform certain rituals and remedies to reduce the negative effects of this Dosha.
It is always advisable to consult with a qualified astrologer before making any important life decisions based on astrological beliefs.
