This is a very popular dosham in the horoscope known to each and every human being in India.This manglik dosh becomes more predominant during girl and boy horoscope matching for marriage purposes.Many people tend to be worried if they have kuja dosha in their horoscope.  Manglik dosha is a normal planetary placement which is present almost in every human being’s horoscope. We do not need to worry about it if it present in our horoscope. Now let’s discuss what kuja dosha is and how it is going to influence a person’s life if it is present in the horoscope.


According to Vedic astrology, there are nine planets influencing our life such as sun, moon, mars, rahu, Jupiter, Saturn, mercury, ketu and Venus. Among that mars is the planet creating kuja dosha according to its placement in the horoscope.


Planet mars is considered as signification of energy, dynamism, courage, aggression etc. Again its influences on the person will change according to its placement in the horoscope.

According famous astrology book Brihat parasara hora sastra, if mars is present in ascendant, 4th house, 7th house, 8th, 12th houses, without any benefic aspect or association, then it is considered that kuja dosha is present in the horoscope. If any benefic planets like Jupiter is influencing the planet mars by aspect or association, though it is located in 1,4,7,8 or 12th house in the horoscope, then also you don’t see any kuja dosha effects on the person.

Exceptions to Kuja dosha:


If a woman with the widowhood yoga marries a man with a similar yoga of loss of spouse, then such yoga will get cancelled." Hence the second exception given by him is that Kuja Dosha is canceled, if both the girl and the boy have Kuja Dosha.

Manglik dosh gets cancelled if the following planetary combinations are present with different zodiac signs in the horoscope and they are as follows:

When mars is in its own sign Mesha, exalted Karkataka or in the houses owned by planets considered to be his friends viz., Ravi, Guru and Chandra.

If mars is in the 2nd house, but in the signs of Mithuna or Kanya.

If mars is in the 4th house, but in Mesha

If mars is in the 8th house, but in Pisces.

If Kuja is in the 12th house, but in Vrushaba or Tula.

If benefic Guru or Sukra occupies the ascendant.

If Kuja is in conjunction or aspected by Guru or Chandra.
