Mangala occupies svabhava of Mangala

Graha Drishti

the glance of Mangala-1 injects bursts of activating energy into

  • bhava-4 home, school, security, foundations

  • bhava-7 alliance, partnership, contracts, marriage

  • bhava-8 initiation, sudden transformative events, rebirth, rejuvenation

Actions of yang Mangala originate in the birth, naew-life, and free-movement instincts (1)

often a sporting enthusiast

  • animated

  • energetic
  • kinetic
  • motivated
  • muscular
  • mobilized
  • pushing
  • pioneering
  • pursuing
  • questing
  • jousting, jostling
  • dominating
  • drilling
  • exploiting.

seeking championship. Can be ruthlessly competitive.

Mangala-1 = innovative, athletic, dominating.

Succeeds in a physicalized , muscular-moving environment. Must be active.

Targeted, outgoing vigor of Mangala-1 penetrates and pushes

Mangala transit to tanu bhava energizes the flesh-body forward movement, new

birth vitality, heat. Good for athletic sports, hunting, physical exercise, hikes and climbs. Increases competitive vitality.

For best results, mangala-1 should avoid re-active movement and promote pro-active muscular movement.

Generally an easy placement and splendid for athletes. Can release a big push of outgoing movement. Must pursue vigorous outward action and needs the space to move freely.

  • POTUS-03 Declaration of Independence 1743-1826 Thomas Jefferson [Atmakaraka] [rhythmic-undulating Aśleṣa-4] TJ traveled widely on horseback, often through wilderness, land-surveying real properties in Virginia. He traveled confidently throughout Europe by horse and carriage in an era when travel was uncertain and often dangerous.


Perhaps the most virulent placement, Mangala-Kanya fights an argumentative, competitive war of words

May be vitally athletic in svabhava, super-competitive, warrior success in battle.

Mangala is all about competition. When Mangala occupies bhava-1, the entire personality integrity + and the flesh body shell that the personality uses to advertise itself = focused upon the task of achieving social dominance.

Mangala's program supports the body's muscular development, material strength, and speed of movement.

Mangala promotes athleticism, spoils for the conqueror, winning, in the culture of warriorship and the nobility of striving for the personal best .

Professor Mangala is explicitly concerned with the well-being of the individual. Unlike Shani, professor Kuja has no interest in maintenance of a greater social system. If Mangala recognizes any system at all, it is the warlike "system" of winner-take-all and "he who dies with the most toys, wins ".

Individual success is Mangala's unit of measure. Kuja delivers a singular push of competitive drive.

Mangala represents the flesh-body, the chassis of animal programming, into which the human spirit has descended and infused.

Usually slender and energetic, well-suited to physically vigorous activities and roles.

  • How Will I Know 1963-2012 singer model Whitney Houston [musical-financial Hasta-2] Although widely celebrated as a singer, wH was also famed for her fashion-model costuming, physical musculature, and performance vitality = Mangala-1 mutual-drishti Chandra+Guru-7

Mangala-1 emphasizes all of the animal functions, including hunting, killing, dancing, mating, sexual reproduction, digging, and eating

Potential for aggressive military action, particularly when combined with the governance authority of Shani.

Mangala represents the Life Force of human vitality, specifically Movement

  • Bello Gallico 100-44 BCE Julius Caesar = constant aggressor-and-negotiator (Mangala Tula)

  • Hugging Saint 1953- Ammachi of Kerala [dramatic-displaying Pūrvaphalgunī-1] [Kuja-yuti-Shukra] AK travels the world delivering hugs of shakti. People stand in line for hours waiting for this infusion of kinetic, dynamic Mangala energy balanced with Shukra.

Fighting, competition, and innovation are the means by which Mangala achieves His core survival goals. Mangala sends a brain signal of " ingenuity" and " ready for action" . He never stops moving, bringing a constant injection of kinetic energy into the physical form.

Identity = military, athletic, engineering, innovating, exploring, engineering, conquesting, agent of sexual or commercial pursuii

Typically Mangala-1 creates a hunting, dancing, riding, swinging, marching, chasing, diving, plumbing, mining, intruding, injecting, invading personality that is always in movement. Usually one is a sexual creature often in pursuit mating opportunities, but Mangala's ruler and drishti into bhava-1 can alter the degree of outgoing sexual energy.

  • Iran-Shah 1772-1834 Fat'h Ali Shah Qajar was said to have had 1000 wives. His harem included beautiful slaves and princesses. He fathered hundreds of children. Mangala-Mithuna is ruled by an empowered [uchcha-Budha] and Mithuna can be exceptionally sexualized, particularly via the Arudra lagna.

Mangala's rulerships determine the areas of personality identity matched to social functions.

Mangala-1 provides a complex and often challenging agency for Kanya nativities, due to Kuja ruler of 3 and 8. Often some amount of secretive sexual energy in the environment.

Mangala-1 = rogesha-6 for the Vṛścika indriya-lagna = invasive medicine (such as surgeries) and its clinical support, criminal attorney and those who professionally manage social conflicts (often violent problems), military officers, those who handle agitations and criminal element

Mangala = rules-11 for the Mithuna nativity = injecting new products and new concepts into the economic social-participatory networks

Mangala = activates-2 for the Tula indriya-lagna = dynamic and pro-change attitude toward family lineage values-fulfillment , finance-banking, food storage, fuel reserves, stockpiles of natural resource.

  • Bello Gallico 100-44 BCE Julius Caesar was born into a noble family but he was impatient with the sloth of the elite. He was very popular with the lower classes (amplified by Ketu-2) and took direct action in matters of stocking his war camps and telling the Histories in his own way (often of questionable veracity, again see Ketu-2).


Naturally if Professor Mangala shares the lagna with His adversaries - Rahu, Ketu, mangala, or Surya - the identity may feature less concern with system regulation and more individualistic or eccentric traits.

Kuja-1 = a BUILDER. Mangala-1 provides a remarkable reserve of muscular, kinetic, sexual , masculine, athletic, productive energy available as a fuel-tank to the energetic, competitive, and incessantly active physical body.

Invigorates the inner hunter, dancer, warrior, athlete.

Highly competitive , sexually in pursuit, and typically quite controlling in the home-and-cultural-education sphere due to the fierce Kuja drishti upon bhava-4. Empowered to direct strong physical and ego-personality energy toward getting what one wants.

Self-focused. Warrior, athlete, body-worker, hunter, challenger, attorney. Masculine imagery and hormonal drive surges through the body.

Performs well in high-energy, sporting, competitive environments . Active and vigorous personality. Finds a bit of war-play sparring to be interesting, invigorating, and funr.

Kuja-1 = muscular, quick-moving, physically responsive, comfortable with battle and intends to win.

Kuja is lagna is an asset in any career which is based in the use (or abuse) of The earthen body : sex worker, fashion model, professional athlete, theatrical stunts, "action" films, dancer, sports trainer, massage therapist, cosmetic surgeon, etc.

25% Kuja dosha toward the first marriage (7). Unsettled childhood (kuja dosha upon bhava-4). Good for building up hidden wealth, particularly within the joint assets of marriage (8).

Kuja-1 = Masculine embodiment = muscular and sporting; testosterone; a vigorously sexualized person.

Kuja-1 = Feminine embodiment = much skill required to manage the high amounts of male energy that is cycling through the Feminine body. Physique is often narrow-hipped, resembling adolescent male. Feminine embodiment is also sporting, sexually pro-active, and often barren -- unless Guru drishti to Chandra or putra bhava.

Kuja-1 = energetic personality - all smiles and constantly in movement.

Pursues life at the physically vital level. Whether overtly or covertly expressed, this one likes to compete .

  • With Rahu: compulsive unconscious aggression, especially toward the spouse.

  • With Shani, frustrated, angry and critical. Strong sexual instincts are repressed by an equally strong sense of social duty. After a vigorous youth, the tension implodes into physical illness, later in life.


8th drishti of Mangala upon randhrasthāna-8 may influence the conditions of dematerialization

although no one single factor can ever comprehensively predict a physical event

  • in a traffic accident

  • on a battlefield

  • during invasive surgery

  • by weapon

  • by undetected bacterial infection

  • in mysterious circumstances

Strength of Mangala Drishti

  • 100% drishti upon Bandhu bhava = Kuja Attacks the svabhava of placid Chandra. Conflict and aggression in the childhood home. Frequent house-moves and parental arguments in the home; emotional instability from uprooting. Damages one's trust in belongingness or ability to put down lasting roots in any one geographical place.

  • 25% Kuja's dominating 7th aspect onto kalatra bhava = Attacks the svabhava of pleasurable Shukra. Kuja Dosha toward the first marriage. Energizes the self-defensive instinct toward quarreling with the partner; mainly this habit is a carry-over from the native 's unsettled childhood.

  • 100% Drishti of Mangala upon bhava-8 = productive in Kuja's svabhava . May harm marriage indirectly by stimulating sudden, forced changes in the native 's relationship to the in-laws. May impulsively reveal the secrets of others.

  • Mangala-1 urges spouse toward sexual hyperactivity; also, naative may push the spouse toward making ambitious contributions to pool of joint assets.

  • Spouse tends to earn and perform well, but under pressure. Contributes to sudden and catastrophic emergencies during periods of Kuja.

Focus of Physical Activity

a dynamic gift for movement in the physical realm

  • always moving

  • calling attention to The earthen body through distinctive appearance

  • energized posture, athletic movement, dance, vital-looking person

  • beauty contests, asserting the personality-body image in advertising,

  • competitive sexual pursuit ( Kuja Dosha too)

  • excellent for athletics, likes to win

  • natural affinity for blood, muscles, the head

  • Combined with strength in bhava-6 = skill in assisting childbirth, massage, medicine especially obstetrics, midwifery, naursing

  • Combined with strength in bhava-8 = emergency medicine, hunting, investigations, use of weaponry and surgical tools

QUOTATION from Das - Behari WRT [Mangala in bhava-1] [Mangala Dosha]

" Life can be explosive:

sins and criminal tendencies inevitably come to light with this planetary placement.

  • Courageous and able to overcome adversaries, you are susceptible to danger from fire, poison, and bloodshed.

  • You are also likely to be reckless in speech and get involved in criminal conspiracies.

You may experience early divorce and suffer from heart disease."

QUOTATION from Das - Behari WRT [Mangala in bhava-1] [Mangala Dosha]

" Mental unrest, wounds, injuries on head and private parts.

  • Burns, scalds, falls and other accidents.

  • Mars rules the muscular system and urino-genital organs, feverish and inflammatory troubles, smallpox, boils in childhood.

  • These are being encouraged by Mars, but subject to modification by other placements.

Having Mars in the ascendant can cause wounds and danger to the spouse.

How you use these qualities depends on you."

QUOTATION from Das / Behari WRT Gochara Mangala transits bhava-6

  • Work hard and get things done.

  • You will be credited for such accomplishments.

  • Avoid conflicts with superiors - do only what is expected of you and don't be too aggressive. There may be employment for team work. There is chance of infections, fever or accidents, so be careful about your health in general."

" If Mangala is in a trikona,

  • advancement of fortune, recognition by the government,
  • gain of clothes and ornaments,
  • success in all efforts,
  • increase in agricultural production
  • and prosperity at home and profits in business

will be the favourable effects of the Antara Dasha of Mangala in the Dasha of Chandra. "
