Mars, Jupiter, Rahu, Ketu, and Sun are described as cruel planets in Vedic astrology. Mars being the cruelest planet of all affects a person’s birth horoscope. Mars is a symbol of fire and hence is the most harmful planet for married life if placed unfavorably. Mars is a planet that represents toughness, violence, courage, anger, energy, power, strength, and resilience. In a horoscope, Mangal Dosha is formed when Mars has a significant effect and influence on all the factors related to marriage and relationships. As per the general definition, “Mangal Dosha is the negativity or malefic effect caused within the birth chart of an individual because of the placement of Mangal (Mars).” This Dosh is caused by the Planet Mars ‘ fiery existence, when it is present in the birth chart of the person in the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th house. When put in these houses with other inauspicious planets, Mars could become more malefic.

  7. Mangal rules over the signs of Mesha (Aries) and Scorpio (Vrishchika). Mars can deliver positive influence and can give power, strong will, freedom, and self-confidence to an individual.
