Mangal means Mars and according to hindu shastra if a person is born with the combination in the birth chart where mars (mangal) is placed in the 2nd, 4th, 7th,8th or 12th house, then the person is having Mangal dosh or he/she can be called Manglik.

1. When Mangal (Mars) is situated in 1st House:

Whenever the mangal is situated in the 1st house of the person’s kundli, it affects the spouse in the marriage. The 1st house of kundli represents the house of the spouse. So, if mangal is situated in the 1st house, there might be full chances of physical assault, and domestic violence. Due to such, a person sometimes suffers from tension, stress and might result in divorce as well.


2. When Mangal (Mars) is situated in 2nd House:

The 2nd house of the kundli represents the family life of a person. If mangal is situated in the 2nd house, it brings so much troubles in family life and along with that it creates conflicts in professional life too.


3. When Mangal (Mars) is situated in 4th House:

If the mangal is in the 4th house, it has a major effect on the person’s professional life. Such people switch jobs and their professional life would not succeed. These people always face financial troubles.


4. When Mangal (Mars) is situated in 7th House:

When mangal is in the 7th house, the person is highly irritable and ill tempered. As a result, a person is not able to maintain a healthy relationship with his/her family members. Not only that, but a person may have more than one partner in his/her life.


5. When Mangal (Mars) is situated in 8th House:

A person who is having mangal in their 8th house of kundli, they are very lazy and they will be so careless in handling finances and assets. Due to that in some cases, such people can lose their parental properties.
