Cancellation Of Mangal Dosha
Many birth charts have Mangal Dosha, but in most of them, Dosha is cancelled due to various combinations of Mars and other planets based on their house positions in the horoscope.
It is believed that a Manglik should only marry another Manglik, the idea being that two negatives cancel each other out, creating a positive.
- When the position of Mars in the bride’s birth chart matches the position of a malefic planet in the Groom’s birth chart, then Mangal Dosha cancels.
- When the position of Mars in the Groom’s birth chart is the same as any of the malefic planets like Saturn, Mars, Rahu in the bride’s birth chart, then the Dosha cancels.
- In the birth chart, if the planets Moon and Venus complement each other in the second house, then the Mangal Dosha ends.
If Mars is present in the 7th position in Taurus Sign or the 8th position in Aquarius Sign, or the 12th house in Sagittarius, there is no Mangal Dosha.
