Mars in Astrology


Manglik dosha is something that strikes everyone when we talk about Mars from an astrological perspective. It is very scary when we read some literature regarding Manglik dosha. I am so surprised why astrology is taken always from a negative angle, while it gives a lot of positive information. In Brihat Parasara Horasastra, the Bible of Astrology, Sage parasara speaks about Mars to his disciple Maitreya in the 3rd chapter” Graha Guna Roopa Adhyaya” Mars is known as the soldier of the planetary cabinet. So, Mars has connected the profession, which includes competition, physical energy, and discipline. Parasara says Mars is cruel, with bloodred eyes, fickle mind, liberal hearted, bilious, thin waist, and thin physique. So, before the scientists find it out, our great sages knew that Mars is red.

When Mars is in the 2,4,7,8th and 12 th house Manglik Dosha is formed, but it is an overrated dosha. It functions in a psychological way than physical way. There are specific other conditions for cancellation of this dosha. It is not like, if you have this then your spouse will die and all, if so, then the half of the world would have been filled with widows and widowers

In Phaldipika, Mantreswara says, Mars indicates the strength, produce from earth, siblings, battle, courage, antagonism, fire, gold, relatives, weapons, thieves, enemies, enthusiasm, adultery, lies, prowess, high thinking, army. 

Mars is known as Bhumiputra and it is also the indicator of land and real estate-related projects. In the mythological story, it says, Lord Siva was grieving for his late wife Sati and out of his sorrow, his body started getting hot, and drop of sweat fell on earth. That drop of sweat became a baby and Earth or Bhumi Devi fostered the child. That is the planet Mars. Hence Mars is known as the Karaka for real estate deals. 

Mars is known as the planet for desires and ambition. It is also known for its passion and sexual energies. 

When Mars is placed in an auspicious manner, it will give the person a lot of confidence and he will use it productively. The person will be heroic, persevering, direct, courageous and he will be very successful in sports events. Mars indicates administration-related talents, so the person with good Mars will be a free-spirited person with quick wits. He will be like a soldier who leads his mission. 


Mars which is placed in a bad way will be giving your a lack of resistance, short temper, and argumentative. If Mars is very bad, then the person can even intake intoxicant. He will have a bad sexual taste like unnatural sex positions. 

Mars indicates sexual organs, urinary bladder, muscles, face, ear, cuts, iron, metals, fire, surgery butcher, and mechanics. So, those who work in these domains will also be having a Martian connection,

Three nakshatras are ruled by Mars, they are Mrigshira, Chitra, and Dhanishta. 

The Sun, Moon, and Jupiter are friends with Mars while Venus and Saturn are neutral and Mercury is an enemy to Mars. 


What Does Venus Indicate in Astrology


Everyone loves Venus as Venus indicates comfort in astrology. It indicates love, money, luxury, creative self-expression, and many more things which can make people happy. According to Vedas Venus is the Guru of Asuras Shukracharya. Actually, in the Vedas, Venus is a male figure, but in astrology, Venus represents a woman. In western astrology, Venus is known as Aphrodite, the Goddess of love. Despite the school of astrology, Venus always indicates, love, females, semen, beauty, white color, comfort, fragrance, money reproductive organs, and marriage. Like Brihaspati, ie, Jupiter Venus is also known as very good knowledge and even more knowledgeable than Jupiter.

In the Vedas Shukra or Venus is the son of Bhrigu and Kavyamata. His mother Kavya mata is also known as Usa or usanas and this entity is a shapeshifter. 

The life shukracharya was very intense, throughout his life he stood with Asuras even though he was from Deva clan. His knowledge is highlighted than Brihastpati due to the knowledge of Mitsanjivni Vidya. He got this vidya from Lord Shiva. Brigaspati wanted to learn this Vidya and he sends his son “Kacha” to the ashram of Shukra. The story of Kacha has a sad ending, that even though he learned this vidya he could not use it.


Shukra naturally attracts people due to the karakas attached to it. 


In astrology, Venus rules Taurus and Libra. Both the signs are connected to comfort and luxury. In the natural zodiac wheel, Venus rules the second and the seventh house, so whichever Lagna you are ruled by, your second and the seventh house will influence Venus.


Venus indicates these things in astrology. Venus is the owner of Bharani, Purva Phalguni, and Purvashada Nakshatras out of the 27 Nakshatras. It represents material possessions, marriage, arts, cinema fame, beauty, romance, sexuality, fashion-   vehicles, houses, spouse, love, and sexual organs 


Venus is friendly to Mercury and Saturn while the Sun and Moon are considered to be its enemy planets. Venus stays in a sign for 28 days. When Venus is placed in a negative mode, the person will have weird sexual interests; he can go through a lack of confidence due to his appearance


The specialty of Venus is, it is never too away from the Sun. Unless it is retrograde we can find Venus always in the 12th, 1st, 2nd, or 3rd house from the Sun. It goes retrograde every nineteen months.
