Mars is popularly known to create problems in married life, and the Manglik dosha is one of the most dreaded negative doshas in astrology. However, it needs a more elaborate explanation beyond the subject of this write-up. Well, when we think about what role Mars plays in our life? We first have to understand its true nature. We are unanimous when we say that life is impossible without energy. One needs power and energy to survive and grow. This need explains dominant role of Mars in our life. Without Mars, a person may turn lethargic and loses hope in life. So, no matter how aggressive or impatient this planet makes us, we need its energy to grow in life.  

Mars, the fiery red planet, is endowed with masculine energy. In Hindu scriptures, it is Bhumiputra (the son of the Earth). Mars is synonymous with anger, rage, determination, and celibacy. Every planet has both positive and negative influences. It will depend upon the placement of Mars in the birth chart to get good or bad results for a person. Mars is responsible for making a brave soldier and a terrorist simultaneously. A strong Mars gives youth, enthusiasm, excellent management skills, power, and courage to stand firm in life.

On the other hand, an afflicted or Weak Mars may affect the analyzing capabilities of a person. Excitement, aggression, and over-passionate behavior are some of the negative traits of Mars. In the absence of logical thinking, a person sometimes causes self-destruction. 

A notable fact about Mars in the birth chart 

Mars tends to lose its negative aggression and overt passion after the age of 29 for a person. It is not that Mars doesn't work after that, but it channelizes its energy into productive tasks after the age of 29 years. 

The most dreaded Manglik dosha has many combinations for cancellations. So, there is nothing to fear about Manglik Dosha. Sometimes, a person drags the unnecessary burden of being Manglik, but actually, he is not! One should visit an astrologer to understand the Manglik dosha in its true sense. Surprisingly, as a few half-learned astrologers have told you, you may not be Manglik.
