Mars Kuja dosha MangalWhat is Mars Kuja Dosha? Generally Vedic Astrologers (Jyotishis) will say that you should not marry someone if they have what is called a “Mars Dosha” (also called a “Mangal Dosh” or “Kuja Dosha”). This means they have the planet Mars in the 1st, 2nd (only according to Southern Indian Astrologers), 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th house of their primary chart. Marrying someone with this in their chart is said to cause disharmony and sometimes to lead to even more serious issues.

However, if the person they are considering marrying also has a Mars Dosha, then it is said to cancel out all the fiery, argumentative effects of Mars and so it is fine to marry them.

It is very common to have a Mars Dosha.

Some believe that if you do marry someone with a Mars Dosha, the effects can be reduced and maybe even cancelled if you have some Vedic priests perform a Yagya ceremony called a “Kumbh Vivah”.

The bad effects are also said to be reduced through other remedies which can be assigned depending on your specific charts.

If we find that you a good match, we let you know in the Match report if Mars Kuja Dosha exists and, if it does exist, if it is cancelled.
