Mars & Mercury: Matrimony and Evils of Mars (Kuja Dosh), Chapter VI, Part 9


Dr. Shanker Adawal

In sexual matters, Mars represents passion, creative force, circulation of vital force etc. Venus denotes the actual perception of the sexual act and attainment of pleasurable sensations. This seems to be corroborated by the astronomical account of the historical conjunction between Mars and Venus as given above. In contrast, Neptune and Ketu cause coldness and inactivity in sexual matters. If they afflict Mars and Venus they cause resistance to sexual matters.

Mars in Eighth House for Females

Grave for Females: The position of Mars in a horoscope bears considerable significance from many angles. The presence of Mars Dosh may cause marital delay, discord and disharmony, unless suitably matched. Sometimes some kind of Puja and effective “Mantras” are also required to curtail the evils of Mars. Presence of Mars Dosha in a female horoscope is as such not desirable. In our experience placement of Mars in the 8th house is the worst disposition. Here in a few cases illustrate how Ashtam Mangali girls fare poorly in marital matters.

Dr. B. Surya Narain Rao has mentioned in “Stree Jataka” that the 8th house from Lagna must be consulted for marital life and widowhood. In a woman’s chart the 8th house from her Lagna reveals sexual passions, her husband’s character, her fortune and general happiness.

Dr. B.V. Raman has also repeated this fact in “Hindu Predictive Aastrology” Chapter XXX on Female Horoscopy, that marital happiness must be adjudged from the 8th house. From 7th house passion, her husband’s and her own character and fortune should be determined.

Dr. B.V. Raman has pointed out following combinations for widowhood:-

1. Conjunction of the lords of 7th and 8th house with malefic combinations.

2. Rahu and Moon in the 8th house will evil aspects.

3. Lord of the 7th house with Saturn and aspected by Mars,

4. Moon and Rahu in the 8th house and the lord of the 7th house with Saturn aspected by Mars.

5. The conjunction of the lords of 1st and 8th houses in her 12th house with a malefic aspect of Mars on the 8th house.

6. The 7th house and its lord between two malefics without any beneficial aspects.

In the horoscope of males, presence of Mars in the 8th house is not so harmful as in the case of females, particularly in respect to the marital happiness.

Before proceeding further it would be worthwhile to enumerate other results of Mars if it occupies 8th house in any horoscope. This position is an such bad for longevity and natural death. As Mars lends aspect over the second house, so usually eye problems arise. Eighth house represents the 8th part of the body, so there will be Urinary troubles or problems in reproductive organs, piles or fistula or boil in anus may be expected. There is a fear of fire, injury or cut etc. There will be innumerable physical complaints, rheumatism and often a disturbed family life and only few children. One will usually and often a disturbed family life and only few children. One will usually be devoid a true friends, while many friends may turn inimical. He will have to face obstacles in his endeavours and success will be attained only after a hard labour. This is not a good disposition of father’s longevity as 8th house is 12th from 9th.
