Mars holds a very important planet in our horoscope. It is the planet of action and our capacity to project emotion - its nature is that of a brave warrior, one who is also ruthless. A correct balance of Martian energy is the most desirable in all lives - but unfortunately, only a lucky few possess this dynamic balance. Mars is the planet of emotional excitability, which can become violence. Generally speaking, Venus is the planet of emotional sensitivity, which can be refined while Mars represents the malefic side of our emotions.
On the positive side, a strong Mars is necessary to give us the energy, independence, will, and self-confidence to carry out our endeavors. Without this, we would have no real interest, passion or motivation to carry out anything to an end and accomplish its objective. On the negative side, the same aggression brings about competition, argument and conflict - which, if unchecked can lead to domination, violence and injury.
Mars indicates premature death; as with the loss of a partner, particularly so when Mars is afflicted by "Kuja Dosha". This affliction of Mars in a birth-chart commonly makes the horoscope to be known as a Manglik horoscope. It is caused by the placement of Mars in the 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th, 12th house of a natal chart. There are of course conditions when this affliction of "Kuja Dosha" is reduced to some extent.
The very obvious and only means to cancellation of Kuja Dosha or malefic effect of a Manglik horoscope is that the person with such a horoscope marries another with a similar affliction. Recourse to divinity, especially to Lord Hanumaan is said to be effective armor against malefic effect of "Kuja Dosha Shanti".
