Today the greatest problem is that astrologers start declaring Manglik by just confirming Mars in lagna, 4th, 7th, 8th and 12th houses whereas from Moon also lagna, 4th, 7th, 8th and 12th homes are confirmed with Mars in it and the person is declared as Chandra Manglik and no need is felt to take into account planetary degrees or bhava degrees. For this reason those who have Mars in these five houses are considered as Manglik and many well-known astrologers are involved in it.
Where predictive astrology is completely based on mathematical astrology there is also a need to explore this mathematics properly.
Astrological Research Center gets many such horoscopes, which have been declared as Manglik by astrologers but after work out complete calculations and bhava degrees and planetary degrees it is seen that the horoscope of the native is Non Manglik.
According to our research if Mars is combust or eclipsed or suppressed by Rahu- Ketu then Manglik dosha is diluted and if some other planet (like Saturn) is neutralizing the Manglik Dosha then it should also be considered and also whether Mars is debilitated or exalted. Suppose if the lagna is at 0 degrees and Mars is in lagna at 25 degrees then in bhava degrees Mars will shift to the 2nd house and when Mars is in the second house then how can there be Manglik dosha? If Mars is in the 4th house at 5 degrees and the lagna is at 28 degrees then Mars will shift to the 3rd house, the house of prowess and then again how can there be Manglik dosha? In the same manner, if Mars is in lagna, which is Cancer, and Mars is debated and as per planetary degrees and bhava degrees also Mars is in Cancer debilitated in lagna.
Then if Mars is in some other sign in lagna then there is Manglik dosha but as Cancer is the sign of debilitation of Mars since the results will be opposite and hence (in other signs it is Manglik) but there is no Manglik dosha in Cancer.
In this aspect even renovated astrologers are giving wrong analysis. In the newspaper (Hindi) an astrologer has given in the column 'Kab Hoga Vivah' (when marriage will take place) an analysis of a horoscope in which the birth details and horoscope were provided and "someone says that it is a Manglik horoscope and some one else says that it is not then what should I say to the ones with what we are talking about marriage? "
On this the astrologer replied that, "as Mars is in the 8th house it is a Manglik horoscope."
I took up this paper and worked on the details provided in the column as the Mars was in Cancer in 8th house debilitated and eclipsed by Rahu. Here is a letter from the astrologer and requested to him that there are three reasons why this horoscope is not Manglik: –
1. Mars is in the 8th house debilitated.
2. Mars is eclipsed by Rahu.
3. position of Saturn.
All those three reasons are changing this horoscope into Non-Manglik one so I requested him to write a letter personally to the person concerned and tell them that it is not a Manglik horoscope. Then what happened? I do not know but I did not receive the answer to my letter.
In the same manner, many horoscopes which are apparently Non-Manglik on working out the planetary degrees and bhava degrees turn out to be a Manglik horoscope. As for instance, if Mars is placed in the 2nd house at 5 degrees and the lagna is at 25 degrees then on working out bhava degrees Mars will shift into the lagna. Then the horoscope will become Manglik.
Therefore, if we do not take care of all these factors and make any such assessment without planetary degrees and bhava degrees it is illogical to decide whether the horoscope is a Manglik one or a Non- Manglik one. This even our top astrologers well-known in society do not care for and simplistically see if the Mars is in lagna, 4th, 7th, 8th and 12th houses and declare the horoscope as Manglik or Non- Manglik. As a result many Manglik people are married to Non-Manglik ones the consequences of which these couples have to suffer.
