First, although a person may have certain conditions in his chart, that make him Manglik candidate, there are various degrees of Bhauma Dosha. Some configurations indicate strong Dosha (defect), while others are less virulent and some can even be called mild. Since there are only 12 houses and presence of Mars in any 5 of them make one a Manglik, nearly 42% of the population are likely to be Manglik!!
We have built a scoring system in our examination based on a 100-point basis to analyze the Manglik status of a Natal Chart. Factors such as conjunction of the Sun and Saturn, which affect the influence of Mars and can be responsible for marital discord, are also considered in this analysis.
The maximum havoc is caused when Mars is ill placed in the Natal Chart and maximum weightage is given to this condition. The higher the points scored, more are the malefic influences of Bhauma Dosha and other discordant planetary influences on a marriage, and remedial measures are a must!
These are the most common problems caused by an afflicted Mars:
- Marital discord – sometimes most inexplicable
- Impulsive, rash and completely regrettable actions
- Failure in competition
- Trouble without any ascertainable cause
- Menstrual problems in women
- Loss of brother or severe misunderstandings with brother
- Blood related diseases
- Loss of real estate
Mars is a wrecker of marriages. The amount of damage Mars can create also depends on other factors like the strength of the 7th House Lord (the ruler of marriage), occupation of good or bad planets in the 7th house or their benefic or malefic aspects, the strength of the planet giving longevity to the spouse amongst other things. A full analysis of your chart will give these details.
Kuja Dosha is a strong regulator of marital harmony. This affliction gets cancelled, according to Sage Parashara, only if the spouse also has a similar affliction i.e. if the spouse is also a Manglik. If both partners in a marriage are Manglik, the Mars Dosha does not become operative for either partner.
However, when a marriage is solemnized without consulting the charts and one of the spouses is a Manglik, the marriage can become rather terrifying and nerve wrecking for both partners since they would not be able to pin-point the reason for the malaise in the relationship and factors affecting it. Even in countries like India, when marriages are arranged, sometimes it is only the traditional 36-point match making compatibility is compared without analyzing for the existence of this Dosha.
