Is Kuja Dosha a Paper Bomb?
By P.Ravindranathan

Kuja dosha is a factor, whose occurrence should not be ignored. But there are a lot of exceptional rules quoted by the savants of astrology, as antidotes. This bugbear of Kuja dosha has been the cause of ruining the joy of many families, by preventing the marriages, which are otherwise very eligible and anxiously wished for.

 
The element of Mars is the fire, which rules marriage. If Mars is situated or associated badly in the horoscope of Male and
Female, the sacrosanct fire would get extinguished soon.Such unfortunate situation is generally termed as Kuja or Mars dosha.
Many of the astrological texts define Kuja dosha as,

'' Dhane Vyaye cha pathale jamitre cha astame kuja,
Streenam bhartru vinasam cha bhrthrunam stree nasanam


i.e., in any male or female horoscope, if Mars is placed in any of the house of 2,12,4,7,and 8, from Ascendant or Moon or Venus, the result will be widowhood (or widowerhood) for both. Some savants of Astrology define that the first house from Ascendant, Moon or Venus also to be taken for consideration for this dosha, because of the fact that the Ascendant represents the physical strength, Moon represents the mind and the Venus represents the sexual emotions. The order of increasing degree of severity of Kuja dosha are I,2,12,4, 7 and 8 from Ascendant, Moon and Venus respectively.

The first house signify the physical comforts, the second the family, the 12th the pleasures of bed, the 4th the happiness of life. The 7th signifies the husband or wife and the 8th indicates the longevity of husband or wife. As per female horoscopy, the 8th house is called the Mangalya-stana, representing longer married life. The 8th house in Male horoscope rules his own longevity only, while the 7th about his wife.

If Mars is placed in the 7th in a female horoscope, there will be quarrels related to marriage and if it is placed in the 8th, widowhood would be the result. For the blemish of 7th or 8th house, of female, the blemish of 7th house alone in the male horoscope is sufficient for remedy. For long marital life, a female who has the Mars dosha should marry a male, who has the same type of dosha. i.e. Mars occupying similar houses in both the horoscopes are considered as the best for longer married life.

Kuja dosha is a factor, whose occurrence should not be ignored. But there are a lot of exceptional rules quoted by the savants of astrology, as antidotes. This bugbear of Kuja dosha has been the cause of ruining the joy of many families, by preventing the marriages which are otherwise very eligible and anxiously wished for. The exceptions are as follows:

There will be no Mars dosha,

1.If Mars occupies its own houses of Aries or Scorpio, and its exalted house of Capricorn and its debilitated house of Cancer.

2. If Mars is aspected by Jupiter.

3. If Mars happens to be the lord of Lagna.

4. If Mars happens to be the 7th lord and posited in the 7th

5. If Mars is placed in any Movable signs.

6. If Mars is combust or retrograde.

7. If Mars is conjunct with Jupiter.

8. If Mars is conjunct with Moon or Mercury,

9. Presence of Jupiter or Venus in the Lagna.

10. One who has Ruchaka Yoga, for the natives of Aries, Cancer, Scorpio and Capricorn.

11. One who has Sasi-Mangala Yoga and Gajakesari Yoga.

12. One who has Sarala yoga (Capricorn happened to be the 12th house and when Mars is in the 8th house

13. Mars in the 8th in the sign owned by Jupiter.

14. Mars has slight dosha in the houses owned by Sun and Saturn.

15. If the depositor of Mars in a Kendra from Lagna.

16. Mars in Taurus and Libra, falling in the 12th house.

17. Mars in Cancer, Leo, Capricorn, Sagittarius or Pisces, coinciding with 8th house.

18. Virgo and Gemini coinciding with 2nd house.

19. Maleficience is very negligible, if Mars is placed in the house of Jupiter.

20. Mars has no dosha in Leo and Aquarius.

21. Mars is quite bad in a house other than Aries and Scorpio.

As there are a lot of exceptions available, fearing of Kuja dosha is found to be ridiculous. One would have naturally a deep confusion of the fact that when Mars is taken as a Malefic in the consideration of “Papa Samya” for matching the horoscope, why should then Mars be taken as separately for its dosha?

Taking into consideration the above exceptions, let us verify the natives of every Ascendant separately.
