Puthra Dosha

Everyone would like to have son/daughter immediately after the marriage. Those who are affected by Putra dosham may find themselves without any children/ delay in getting the children.

‘Puthra’ means child. The word ‘Dosha’ has several meaning like blemish, mistake, a problem or an imperfection. Putra dosha, the flaw that pertains to children is a very popular term in Vedic Astrology. It comprises of all types of faults that may be related to one’s children as seen from the horoscope.

The Fifth house from Lagna represents progeny. Jupiter is Puthra Karaka. The Lord of the Fifth, and Jupiter, should be placed well to ensure children. The Lord of the 10th is also connected with the native getting a legal heir.

Fifth house is the Puthra sthana (house indicating children) for a male and any malefic planets in this fifth house creates Puthra Dosha (imperfection in child birth) to the native. Jupiter is the puthra karaka(planet indicating children). If the 5th lord, Jupiter and 5th house is affected by malefic planets then the person suffers due to Puthra Dosha mainly due to progeny problems.

Factors indicating Puthra Dosha are the Lord of the Fifth being ill placed, Jupiter in a weak position, and the Fifth house and Jupiter receiving malefic aspects. In such cases, the coming of progeny may be delayed, and even denied. The role of Maha Dasa-s and Bhukthi-s is relevant too. Competent and experienced astrologers can recommend possible ways to overcome the effects of Puthra Dosha found in a horoscope.

For a female both the fifth and ninth house in the horoscope are to be analyzed for the child birth. Usually ninth house is called as Puthra Sthana for women but still, fifth house indicates the nature of womb (ovary) and conception. Any malefic in 5th or ninth house in the horoscope of female creates some problem in child birth.

Rahu in 5th house delays child birth and in most of the cases they suffer abortion if any malefic like mars or Saturn aspects Rahu. They beget only female children. If ketu is posited in 5th house, they suffer childlessness for a very long period and they may beget a male child long after 8 years of marriage. If moon or mars is posited in fifth house they beget more female children. If Saturn is posited in 5th house, they may go in for adopted child. For a perfect analysis of progeny, Rasi chart and Sapthamsa chart of both the husband and wife should be analyzed and this cannot be explained here in detail.

Also, fifth house indicates ancestral assets, love affair, luck in speculation, personal mantra favorable deity etc. weak fifth house and malefic in fifth house spoils the ancestral assets. They also face failures in love affairs. They should also avoid involving in speculation which might put them in to disappointments. Planet in fifth house indicates the type of mantra one would choose to chant and attain perfection (mantra siddhi).

It is always good if no planet occupies 5th house (puthra sthana). Even benefic planet like Jupiter in 5th house creates dosha. 5th house is also called as poorva punya sthana. Hence any malefic planet in 5th house indicates the curse we’ve got from our past lives. 

Planet sun indicates curse of father
Moon indicates curse of mother
Mars indicates curse of brother
Mercury indicates curse of maternal uncle
Jupiter indicates curse of god
Saturn indicates curse of departed souls
Venus indicates curse of spouse
Rahu and Ketu indicates curse of serpents 

If the fifth house and its lord is affected along with any of the above said planets, one suffers from Puthra dosha due to the curse from the past lives.

Maharishi Parasara in his jyothish text ‘Brihat Parasara Hora Sastra’ has given different planetary combinations that indicate childlessness due to the curse in the horoscope.

The main cause of Putradosha is past life deeds. Putradosha indicates that the person has be unkind to a child or children. Depending on the range of the crime towards children in a past life, the putradosha ranges from mild to heavy in the current birth.

Parents take care of us. In return we cannot take care of the parents in the same way. To pay back, you need to take care of your children because you are the parents to your children. Not taking care of your children is one of the worst crimes possible. Just think of a world where parents do not take care of their children. So taking care of children is the most important duty of the husband and wife.

So it follows that the atonement rituals may include as payback any of the following: either the direct punishment, adoption of children or huge medical expense due to infertility problems.

Medical expenses is part of the punishment. By not taking care of children in a past life the person may have saved a lot of money in a past life. That money has now to be spent on medical treatment. So doctors will become the tax collector in this case. That is why infertility specialists charge a lot of money.

When you throw away something soon you will be needing it. Have you noticed that? So if you throw away or abort children you will in a future birth struggle to have a child.

It is like you do not payback the loan in a bank and soon no bank will help you with a loan in the future. In such cases local money lenders take advantage and punish you more with huge interests.

In short Putradosha like all other dosha is proof that Karma works. Putradosha manifests more than one way.
a) No children 

b) If children are born they will become the main cause of concern in your life 
c) Children will be thoroughly disobedient. 
d) Children may be separated from you. Putradosha will work in tandem with marital problems that are already there in the horoscope trying to separate father and mother so that the child will suffer. 
e) Sudden downfall in career – from great heights to nothing

From the above we know that within the term Putradosha – there is a range starting from the highest Putradosha to the lowest Putradosha.

In case the dosha is not severe remedies will work. If the putradosha is too much then remedies will not work.

If you have to assess the level of Putradosha then you have to know a great deal of rules pertaining to problems related to childlessness and serious problems with children.

Common effects of Puthra Dosha:

Delay in child birth
Birth of female babies alone
Birth of physically or mentally affected child
Children become useless or helpless to parents
Child doesn’t respect or obey parents 

If the person has afflicted 5th house, then he suffers due to childlessness. But if he has a strong bagya sthana (house indicating fortune) and karma sthana(house indicating actions), then he begets a child after the age of 40. He’ll be blessed with a karma puthra (child who would performs the final rites to his father) due to his noble actions indicated by 9th and 10th house.

Kalathra Dosha

The word "Kalathra" means the life partner of every person. The word Kalathra means spouse. For males the word "Kalthra" points towards his wife and for the females to their husband.

Among the planets, Venus is the kalathra karaka (planet indicating wife). Among the 12 houses, 7th house is the kalthra sthana (house indicating spouse). Any malefic planet in 7th house creates kalathra dosha. Also, kalathra dosha is created if the 7th lord and venus is afflicted in the birth chart.

Kalathra Dosha means that it indicate trouble ahead in the married life. Kalathra Dosham (Kathira Dosha) can cause delay in marriage it is very hard to find a suitable partner for marriage or can end up in no marrige during the current life. The houses 2, 7 and 11 is considered for judging the Kalathra Dosham on a chart. However 7th house is given paramount importantance. Venus is the Kalathra Karaka in boy's horosocpe and Jupiter is the Kalathra Karaka in girl's horosocpe

Even after the marriage, they lack good understanding and live a separated life. They also lack conjugal bliss which ultimately ends up in divorce. In some cases, the spouse suffers due to health problems and even death may occur in severe cases.

No connection between 2nd, 7th and 11th house can lead to delayed marriage usually. The malefic planet or malefic affliction in 7th house or in 7th lord can create problems in married life. The array of planets affliction with 7th house or 7th lord can cause divorce and re-marriage.

Most of them often takes much care and time to solve the Marriage Porutham puzzle. But the actual villian in the Marriage episode is this Kalathra Dosha. If Boy or Girl's horoscope indicates any form of Kalathra Dosha, that issue has to be addressed before conducying the Marriage.

Common effects of kalathra dosha: 

Delay in marriage
Unhappy marital life
Lack of conjugal bliss
Separation or divorce
Ill health to spouse
Premature death of spouse

Similarly, 8th house is called as mangalya sthana(house indicating marital tie). Malefic planets in 8th house create Mangalya dosham. Planet Jupiter is called as the mangalya karaka (planet indicating marital tie). If the 8th lord, Jupiter and 8th house is afflicted, then the person faces trouble in marital life due to mangalya dosham. Mangalya dosha will spoil the marriage life either by separating husband and wife by sending someone away from home or else by divorce or by giving death to the husband.

Naga Dosha

Sarpa means Snakes ! 
Who is not afraid of snakes? So also we are scared about these two, Naga Dosham and Kalasarpa Dosham. But there is no need for such fear. Read this Article, Learn about Naga Dosham, and your fears will take leave of you. If the Girl and Boy horoscopes are matched properly, there is no need to worry.

Sarpa Yoga is also known as Sarpa Dosha or Naga Dosha. It is caused due to wrath of the Serpent God in previous birth. Due to Sarpa Yoga, marriages are delayed or ruined, Progeny may be denied, miscarriages/Abortion will occur.

Sarpa Yoga (Sarp Dosh or Naga Dosha) is different from Kal Sarpa Yoga / Dosha (KSY). Many astrologers/writers have written about Kal Sarpa Yoga/Dosha. Here i will not talk about Kal Sarpa Yoga/Dosha but only about Sarpa /Naga Dosha.

Naga Dosha in the ancient tradition was caused from a previous birth when either you or your ancestors killed or harmed snakes instead of revering and respecting them. Snakes, called “Naga”, are mystical and powerful. They can grant you great boons or curses respectively. Snakes are also closely associated with Kundalini and many forms of the Goddess. Vindictiveness against or mistreatment of women, particularly spiritual women in practice of enlightenment or other psychic pursuits, also generate a Snake curse on you and future generations. Severe negativity or blasphemy against Goddess worship can likewise cause Naga Dosha.

Sarpa Dosha delays marriage and also delays progeny/children. Let us examine planetary combinations in the birth chart indicating Sarpa Dosh / Naga Dosha.

When Ketu or Rahu is placed in 1st, 2nd, 5th, 7th or 8th house Indicate Sarpa Dosha / Naga Dosha.

Women suffering from Sarpa/Naga Dosha will have children after conducting Pooja of Naga Devatha.

When Ketu or Rahu is placed in 1st or 2nd House, Indicate delay in marriage, If the person is married, creates problems in family life and sometimes leads to divorce or separation.

Ketu or Rahu in 5th house leads to delay in getting children/Progeny and also leads to abortions. Also Rahu aspect on 5th house also indicates Sarpa/Naga Dosha. Naga Prathistapana at any Naga temple should be done for getting children.

Ketu or Rahu in 7th house Leads to problems in family life, misunderstandings, frequent quarrels, wife/Husband will have Health problems etc.

Ketu or Rahu in 8th house Indicate Health problems of wife or Husband, skin disease etc. The person suffering from Sarpa/Naga dosha will see Snakes/Serpents in their dream. That is a clear Indication of Sarpa dosha.

While this explains the source of Naga Dosha, it is understood that you are not the same person now. Nevertheless, the effects from your prior births or prior generations are impacting you now.

Kala Sarpa Dosha

“Kala” means time,“Sarpa” means Serpent and “Yoga” means combination. So Kala Sarpa Yoga means that the soul is caught by the Serpent of time within the axis of Karma. It reflects unusual and unexpected life-situations experienced by a person, according to his Karma of the previous birth.

The Kala Sarpa Yoga is a combination of two words namely the Kala and Sarpa. Kala means the time personified. It is the time which is responsible for bringing out the changes in this phenomenal world. Kala also implies death of the individual of the phenomenon. The Sarpa means the serpent. When the serpent bites the person dies a silent death. The death is nothing but a reorganization of various elements of nature.

As per hindu mythological stories, head of snake is called as Rahu, tail of snake is called as ketu. They both are placed opposite to each other at 180 degree and never meet together. rahu and ketu are shadow planets. They do not have any solid form and can neither be seen through naked eye or through telescopes.

It is formed when all 7 planets considered in Vedic Astrology (Sun, Moon, Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury) are placed between Rahu (Moon's North Node) and Ketu (Moon's South Node) in the natal chart.

If all the seven planets are placed in between ketu and Rahu then it is called as kala amrita yoga. Not much detail about this yoga is given in any of the famous jyothish scripts. It seems this yoga has been inserted in the medieval period by some jyothish experts.

Kalasarpa yoga is considered to be one of the not so good Nabhasa Yogas. This is sometimes associated with physical deformity or moral weakness, misfortunes, deceit and treason. The positive qualities of this Yoga are that, the native can acquire a capacity to do arduous work, with exceptional success in the fields of studies, administrations, philosophy etc. Moreover one can fulfill his desires of his life, either in the materialistic concept or in the spiritual scope.

Kala Sarpa Yoga is defined by the following sloka.

Agre rahur atho kethu, Sarve Madhya gata graham| Yogam Kalasarpakhyam,Nripa Sasya Vinasanam||

According to the above sloka “ Rahu must be ahead of the Ascendant and Ketu behind it; all the planets should occupy between them; no planet should be in conjunction with Rahu or Ketu . This is a definition for Kalasarpa Yoga.

Sarvanabho gasthishta thiyagu Sikhino, Anthrala rasigatha| 'Malyavadanthara rahithah Yatha thatha Kalasarpa Yogasyala ||

Anuloma vilomathkala Dwidhoyam Kalasarpayogascha| Anthoykthasch anistom karithi Poorvo maha subada||

Sampoorna sakala vibhavaha Samastha Nripavandhithakhri Kamalayuga| Rajadhi Raja Rajo Virajathee Kalasarpa Yoga bhava||

From the above sloka, we can understand that: All the planets must be placed a between Rahu and Ketu continuously, forming a chain without any break. Only this formation can be taken as the Kalasarpa yoga.

The Ascendant can either be within the chain or outside the chain Either Rahu or Ketu can occupy the lagna. So the lagna has nothing to do with the formation of the Kalasarpa yoga. The yoga is of two kinds; one is called the “Anuloma” and the other the “Viloma” The “Anuloma” type produces excellent results, whereas the “Viloma” type produces undesirable results. In Anuloma type, Rahu is ahead within the six rasis from the lagna and Ketu occupies a position behind all the planets. Here, one will acquire higher position with all beneficent results. In Viloma type, Ketu is ahead within the six rasis from the lagna and Rahu is posited behind all the planets. Here, one will suffer the maximum and lose his benefits.

When all the planets are located or locked up between Rahu and Ketu, the planets can arrange themselves in various possible positions to activate the Kalasarpa yoga. Such conditions can be briefly mentioned as follows:

If the Sun is in the 8th house from Rahu, or When Rahu or Ketu is in the 8th house from Moon, Kalasarpa Yoga is activated. The Kalasarpa Yoga is predominant, when Rahu or Ketu is located in the 6th, 7th, and 8th house from the ascendant. When Rahu or Ketu is in Kendras, the adverse effect of the Kalasarpa yoga is greater. When Rahu or Ketu is in Trikona, the good effects of the Kalasarpa yoga predominant. Depending upon the movement of the planets either towards Rahu or Ketu, the yoga is named either as Kalasarpa yoga or Kalamrita Yoga.

Both the Yogas are formed, when all the planets are suitably located between Rahu and Ketu . Some astrologers consider Kalasarpa Yoga is Viloma type of Yoga and Kalamritha Yoga as Anuloma type of Yoga. In Southern states of India, yet one more condition is given. When Rahu goes towards its exaltation position, and the other planets follow suit, it is said to be a benefic yoga, giving good results to the native; on the other hand if Rahu goes towards its debilitated position followed by other planets, it is said to be a malefic yoga, giving bad results to the native.

One school of thought says that when lagna, Sun, Moon or any one of the planets is away from the sequence of Kalasarpa arrangement, the yoga is said to be nullified, but another school of thought insists that there will be nullification, only when two or more above said factors are away from such arrangement. So conceptually, it has been accepted that occupation of the planet between Rahu and Ketu is the essential condition for the Kalasarpa Yoga.

Since the Nodes of the Moon are associated with Karmic attributes, the yoga inflicts certain restrictions over a natal chart. It expresses karmic nemesis.

The Kalasarpa Yoga will be mostly operative between the ages of 39 and 45 years.

When the Lagna is not included in the yoga and goes out of the axis of Rahu and Ketu, lesser will be the adverse effect.

Kalasarpa yoga is not like other yogas generally formed by the combinations of Mars, Sun or Moon, producing enrichment or penury. The encirclement of all the planets in the natal chart by the two nodes makes the individual to enjoy the fruits of previous Karma. If a person suffers at the present birth due to the bad deeds of the previous birth (Sanchita Karma) and do good at this birth (good Prarabdha Karma), with Kalasarpa yoga being present in the horoscope, then the suffering in the present birth will be gradually changed into good. The native will have good worldly life with spouse and children.

It has been found that if Rahu or Ketu conjoins with any planet either in the ascendant or in the 7th house from the lagna, a partial cancellation of the yoga occurs, which results in Raja Yoga at the respective attributed house. The native will enjoy either good or bad according to the dispositions of the lords of the ascendant and the 7th house in the natal horoscope.

The impact of the Kalasarpa Yoga is greatly minimized, if three or more planets are exalted or in parivartana or the lords of the 2nd, 4th, 9th and 10th occupy the Trikona or Kendra houses, without debilitation, inimical positions or aspected by malefics.

Kalasarpa yoga formed during the transits of Rahu and Ketu plays a vital role in the mundane affairs, generally causing unexpected natural havocs and calamities. According to Vedic astrology, the Kalasarpa yoga does not include the influence of the outer planets like Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.

Kalasarpa yoga stops other good yogas in the horoscope to give its fruitful effects to the native. Anybody affected by kala sarpa yoga faces lot of problems untill the age of 35. they face lot of mental restlessness, pessimistic thoughts and instability in life. They often see snakes in their dreams. They struggle a lot to make their life stable. They get deceived by near and dear ones. Few get seperated from their family and move away from their native place. Particularly if he gets rahu or ketu dasha, he faces lot of mental problems. some get addicted to bad habbits or involve in unlawful activities. Even their close friends and relatives might deceive them. He will face lot of troubles and will have to strive hard to settle in the first half of his life.

One, need not fear this yoga because the negative effects completely gets reduced over time. the other good yogas in horoscope will work in the second half of the life. They’ll involve themselves in spirituality. They’ll get good name and fame in society. They’ll be blessed with good health and wealth.

Rahu and Ketu are considered to be the two parts of the demon Rahu lying axially in opposite directions and dividing the zodiac in two equal parts. When all the planets lie on one side of the axis the configuration is Kala Sarpa Yoga. Some are of the opinion that Rahu should invariably be in the first six signs of the birth chart. If the ascendant id Virgo, rahu should falls in the signs Cancer to Leo, Another implication of this is that there should be no planet in the signs occupied by the nodes. There are still others who hold that we should include the three extra Saturnian planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto also. Some eminent astrologers believe that the Kala Sarpa Yoga if formed when the planets are on one side of the axis and that is immaterial whether some of them are with Rahu or Ketu irrespective the houses occupied by them.

The only restriction to them is that the longitudes of the planets should not exceed the longitudes of the nodes. According to our modest experience, the Yoga is formed and does not have its effect irrespective of the houses occupied by the nodes, for Rahu is the Karmik agent (outlet/distribution) and its position is immaterial in the birth chart. 

The study of the Kala Sarpa Yoga indicates that the Yoga is not particular for a class or society. It may appear in the charts of very ordinary as well as of dignifies persons. This may mean some important diversion in the course of their lives. The reason may be different for different persons. The world is an integrated whole. A change at one place shall have its effects on some other parts of the world. As a Rudra Rahu has to oversee the operation of the law of evolution as well as the law of the Karmas and retribution.

Mars or Chevvai Dosha

In the Indian Vedic Kundali Matching there is a lot of importance to Mangal Dosha, Kuja Dosha, Kuja Dosham, Manglik Dosha, Manglika Dosha, in these days.

A simple survey shows that as many as 90% of the people in the Universe will be under the influence of Kuja Dosha. Every one of us, at one time or the other, will hear about Kuja. The word is more prominently heard when horoscopes of the bride and bridegroom are studied before their marriage, especially for matching.

What is Kuja Dosha? What are the remedies? Let us try to examine the Kuja Dosha. Every person on one time or other speaks about Kuja. We all try to know whether the native is having Kuja Dosha or not especially at the time of marriage. What makes us to think of Lord Kuja? Because, He is the only one who creates problems in not only in married life but also in normal life.

People, it seems, fear so much from this Dosha that they just pay attention to only Mangal Dosha and not anything else in the Kundali Matching.

So what actually is Mangal Dosha, why so much fear and worry about it? Let me explain how it is formed.

Unfortunately, in almost all of the cases, we tend to be very much worried about the presence of the Kuja dosha in the natal charts that we begin to feel that certain things in life, such as marital life for instance, will get disturbed or worse they are deprived of. Before we proceed further, it is important for us to be clear that Kuja is not a matter to be afraid of and it is not the end of the world for them.

Matters pertaining to the intensity of the Kuja Dosha and its cancellation play major roles and we shall attempt to study about Kuja, Kuja dosha and various related aspects.

What is Kuja ?

According to antecedents, the very name Kuja came into existence as Ku means earth Ja means birth. It means that Kuja is the son of earth. He was brought up by six Krutika stars resulting with six faces because he is fed by six star mothers. That is reason why he is also called Shanmuka.

Kuja Dosha !

Kuja dosha, Mangal dosha, Mars dosha, Mangalik dosham or Chevvai dosham is very important in match making. It is one important criterion for marriage matching in Hindu astrology.

By preparing and studying the jataka chakrams or birth charts we can say whether a person has this kuja dosha or not.

The most important point to be remember is a person having kuja dosham should marry a person having the same kuja dosham. Marriage between a person having kuja dosham and a person not having kuja dosham should not be done. It is believed to be devastating for marriage, causing discomfort and tension, separation, divorce, and in some cases, it is believed to cause untimely death of one spouse.

It is said that if Mangal Dosha in both the charts is of same intensity then only they should marry with each other.

When Mangal is in the Ascendant (1st House) or in the 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th House, Mangal Dosha is formed. Whenever Mangal becomes the Ascendant Lord or Yog Karaka, the Dosha gets nullified, naturally. Mangal in conjunction with or under the aspect of Guru (Jupiter) as Guru is a wise man, it propitiates Mangal. Moon and Mangal together in a sign (conjunction), will also nullify the Mangal Dosha or Kuja Dosha. Debilitated Mars (Neecha Mangal) is sign Cancer, nullifies the Dosha. When one crosses the age of 28, Mangal Dosha or Kuja Dosha gets naturally nullified as by that time one naturally gets more matured about one’s anger and temperament.

Further, even if one has a Mangal/ Kuja Dosha, if the prospective bride or groom, has Shani in any of the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th and 12th Houses, the Dosha gets nullified, because Shani, is the opposite of Mangal. It is cold and practical and so can handle the temperament of Mangal.

As per Dev Keralam (South Indian treatise on astrology) when Mangal is in the 2nd House, even then Mangal Dosha is formed.

Mangal in these Houses aspects the 7th House of matrimony and the 8th House of longevity and sexual activity in married life. Mangal, being a natural malefic and a hot planet of anger and temper, its aspect or placements in these Houses influences the following:

In the ascendant, it gives a hot temperament and aspects the 7th and the 8th House, which hurts the matrimony.

If Kuja is positioned in the second, fourth and twelfth houses, it is considered as ordinary Kuja dosha. It may cause only normal dosha.

In the 2nd House, Mangal gives temperamental speech and as it aspects the 7th and the 8th Houses, it again hurts the matrimonial home, through speech.From lagna, if Kuja is positioned in the second house, the house is effected as it is domestic house. The house is also called marka stana. So, if Kuja is in the second house, He may cause death or its equivalent. It shows effect only after marriage that may result in separation, leaving the job, violence, financial difficulties etc, will be created. Those natives who speaks rashly both at domestic as well as outside, we can say the native is having Kuja dosha. However, if both wife and husband are having Kuja dosha, it will be nullified.

In the 4th House, Mangal gives hurt emotions and as it aspects the 7th House, ones influence of hurt emotions and feelings will hamper the marriage.From lagna, if Kuja is positioned in the fourth house, the house of domestic harmony will be spoiled. Separation is inevitable. If the native is having this type of dosha, he may sell away the assets and face difficulties. Majority of the natives will face legal problems, lack of sufficient earnings for the work are some of the effects. However, if both wife and husband are having kuja dosha, it will be nullified.

In the 7th House, the partner will also be hot tempered and as his Mangal aspects the ascendant, the person himself or herself will be temperamental so sparks are deemed to fly everywhere in the married life.If Kuja in the seventh house, it creates major problems. The seventh house is considered to the marriage house. Delay in marriage, even after the marriage is fixed, the marriage may be cancelled due to problems with both sides, after marriage is fixed, either the bride or bridegroom may get married with some other, the natives having this type of Kuja dosha may go for blood shed, involving into legal, police and court cases are some of the effects.

In the 8th House, Mangal destroys the longevity of oneself and with its aspect to the second house, creates hot speech, influencing marital harmony.If Kuja is in the 8th house, the house of harmony will be destroyed. The natives longevity will be at stake. There is a possibility of the natives whose natal chart Kuja is positioned may die. If already married, they may be separated with quarrels. Some of the natives may get their marriage delayed or may not be done. They may face some secret health problems. Some of the natives may done to death by the other partner.

If Kuja is positioned in the seventh and eighth house, we have to consider the Kuja dosha as severe. To nullify the negative aspects of Kuja dosha, one has to perform necessary remedies.

In the 12th House, Mangal will aspect the 7th House and as it is in the 12th House of bed comforts, one may be highly active in sexual activity and hamper the marriage home due to frivolous sexual demands and activity.If Kuja is positioned in the 12th house, it may not cause that much of severe. However, the natives may have to face some problems. As twelfth house is the house of expenditure and the longevity, Kuja may cause effect on these two points mainly.

Unfortunately most of the time, people purely and instantly predict Mangal Dosha just by noting the planetary position of Mangal. But many people do not heed to the notes of Parashar about the natural cancellation of Mangal Dosha.

The Shadbala strength should also be checked, because if it is weak in Shadbala, is of Vriddha Avastha or Mrut Avastha or Baal Avastha, Mangal cannot do any harm.

After cross-checking all these above points and issues, one could responsibly say whether the client has a Mangal or Kuja Dosha or not.

If one finds that there is definitely Mangal/ Kuja Dosha in the horoscope, then Mangal Dosha Shanti should be done by a competent Brahmin. In such cases, never try to save some money by performing the Mangal Dosha Puja or Shanti on one’s own, as in the current lifestyles, the laid Vedic Principles cannot be followed to propitiate planets.

For the purpose of deciding whether a native is having Kuja Dosha, one has to study the natal chart. It is said that the evil results of mars, when counted from Venus, is much more pronounced than when it is in houses 1,2,4,7,8 or12 counted from moon. Evil results of mars from Moon are more evil than those counted from Lagna. In other words, the dosha caused by the position of Mars counted from the Lagna is not as much as it is when counted from Moon. In fact the dosha caused by the position of Mars counted from Venus is the strongest.
