Remedies for the Mangalik Yoga (Dosha)

Even when Mangalik Yoga is formed in a birth chart it may not be effective as in many cases the Yoga gets cancelled. In case the Yoga is active some remedial measures can be followed to remove the negative results.


Mangalik Yoga, which is considered as a dosha (defect) in Vedic astrology is formed if in a birth chart the planet Mars occupies the ascendant, 4th house, 7th house, 8th house or the 12th house. Some include among the above the 2nd house also.

In true sense the yoga should be considered as per the ascendant chart (Lagan Kundali), the Moon chart (Rashikundali) and the Venus chart (reorienting the ascendant chart by making the house where Venus is placed as the ascendant). The Yoga should be considered the strongest if it is formed in all the above charts and less severe if formed in two or one chart only out of the three mentioned above.

Cancellation of the Mangalik Yoga

• If in one partner’s chart the Mangalik Yoga is present and in the other partners charts Mars or any other malefic planet viz. Saturn, Rahu, Ketu or weak Moon occupies the same house.

• If Mars occupies Aries or Scorpio sign.

• If Mars receives aspect of Jupiter.

• If Mars occupies the Taurus or Libra signs in the 4th or 7th houses.

• If Mars is conjunct Jupiter, Mercury or strong Moon.
