Mangal or Mars is the son of Mother Earth according to Vedic mythology. It is a hot and red planet. According to Vedic astrology, it has red eyes with thin features. The planet is ruled by energy, passion, and aggression. It is also referred to as Commander-in-Chief of the celestial army.

Mangal in Kundali

If Mangal is in the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th house of a Kundali or birth chart, it signifies that the person is Manglik. The person may or may not have the Mangal Dosh. Mangal dosha happens when:- One, the eyes of malefic planets like Saturn, Rahu or Ketu are on the Mangal planet in any of these mentioned six houses. Second, when Saturn, Rahu or Ketu is existing with Mangal in any of these houses in a malefic position. Third, Mangal is in a descendant position in the horoscope in these houses. It will have dangerous effects in this situation.

Therefore, being a Manglik and suffering from Mangal dosha is different. A Manglik might have Mangal dosha but a person under Mangal dosha is always Manglik.

Mangal Dosha Effects

The effects of Mangal dosha are mainly seen on marriage. Either it becomes difficult to get into a marital relationship or, if it establishes, then it becomes difficult to make it a happy and longstanding one. The point is, if you have a disturbed mangal or mars, it will make you aggressive, intolerant, unstable and fickle-minded.
