Planet Venus
After Mercury, Venus is the 2nd planet from the Sun. It is said to be the twin sister of Earth, as it is very close to the mass of Earth. It is the brightest planet in our solar system. Venus glows because of the presence of sulphur.
According to the Hindu mythology, Venus is called Shukra, who is the teacher of demons. He is named as Shukracharya. Shukravar (Friday) is the day for Venus. Shukracharya is said to be the founder of astrology, architecture and airplanes.
According to the astrology, Venus has a Mahadasha(main) period of twenty years. This planet is considered more benefic and less malefic. It is the ruler of  both Taurus & Libra zodiac signs.

Remedies to Mitigate ill effects of Mangal dosha

However, one does not need to worry about the ill-effects of this dosha as there are certain remedies that help in the cancellation of the negativity of Mangal. There are certain rituals, and mantras that can be followed. Here is a list of them.
1.     Marriage between two Manglik individuals
If both the partners are Mangliks then this dosha gets nullified. All its ill- effects are cancelled and the two can have a blessed and happy married life.
2.     Kumbh Vivah
When one person is Manglik in a marriage, the negative effects of Mangal dosha can be cancelled by performing this ritual called Kumbh Vivah. According to Hindu Vedic Astrology a Manglik person is made to marry a Banana tree, peepal tree, or a silver/golden idol of Lord Vishnu.
3.     Placement of Mars in the horoscope chart
Astrologers also claim that if the first house is of Aries or Mesh in one’s horoscope chart, and Mars or Mangal resides in this house then the Mangal Dosha is no longer effective, as Mars is in its own house- Aries.
4.     Fasting
Out of all the remedies fasting on Tuesdays is also considered an effective remedy. Manglik individuals who observe a fast on this day should eat only toor daal (split pigeon daal).
5.     Chanting
Manglik individuals should chant the Navgraha mantra which is known as Mangal Mantra on Tuesdays. They can also chant the Gayatri mantra 108 times in a day or the Hanuman Chalisa, daily.
6.     Performing Pujas in Temples
Visiting Navgraha temples reduce the ill-effects caused by Mangal Dosha. However, there are only a few temples in the whole of India that are dedicated to Lord Mangal. The most popular temples are located in Tamil Nadu. Some are also located in Guwahati, Assam. Performing these pujas on Tuesdays is very effective to reduce the ill effects of Mangal dosha. Visit a Lord Hanuman temple and worship him on Tuesdays. Offer vermilion and sweets. Also light a ghee lamp at the temple.
7.     Offerings and contributions
Making contributions on Tuesdays is considered as a remedy for Manglik individuals. Some objects that are considered as items that should be offered to please Mars are swords or knives, food that are made of red lentil daals (masoor daal), wheat breads, red silks, and red stones such as corals.
8.     Gemstones
Wear in the ring finger of the right hand a golden ring with a bright red coral. However, get the horoscope chart analyzed thoroughly by a trusted astrologer before wearing it.
Appease Lord Ganesha in the following manner.
1.Offer red flowers and gud (Jaggery) to Lord Ganesha everyday. While worshipping, recite the mantra: Om Gan Ganpataye Namah 108 times.
2.Donate Blood on Tuesdays (quarterly), if health permits.
3.Install Mangal Yantra and perform Mangal Prayer.
4.Observe fast on Tuesdays (sunrise to next day sunrise)(see above instructions )
5.Recite Mangal Chandika Stotra on regular basis.
6.Perform Kumbh Vivah, Vishnu Vivah or Ashwatha Vivah.
7.Recite Hanuman Chalisa daily.
8.Feed birds with sweet food.

It is advisable to consult before you start any remedies. For free advise send your date, place  and time of birth.

Overcoming the Mangalik Dosha

The Mangalik or the Mangal Dosha can be troublesome and affect the married life, substantially. Kundali matching and judging the Mangal Dosha is the job of an expert astrologer, and it must be done only after carefully analyzing the horoscopes of the boy and the girl, both. 
It may interest the readers to know that the marriage of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan  was delayed because of Mangal Dosha. Though Ash and Abhishek visited Kashi Vishwanath temple for shanti of Mangal Dosha it is considered to be futile by many astrological authorities.
There is  a belief that the negative consequences for a single-manglik marriage can be resolved if the manglik first performs either of  the three ceremonies  -- Kumbha Vivah, Vishnu Vivah and Ashwatha Vivah, (this finds mention in the  religious hindu books namely Dharam Sindhu and Mahurat Chitamani)
What is Kumbh Vivah
It is a marriage ceremony which is solemnized in a closed room where only the girl, her parents and the priest are present. The girl dressed as full-fledged bride is first married to the urn and then made widow by breaking the urn, reflecting that the Mangal Dosh has been addressed and the real marriage to follow will be successful.
What is Vishnu Vivah
It is a marriage ceremony just like the Kumbh Vivah. The marriage takes place with a silver or gold idol of lord Vishnu.
What is Ashwatha Vivah
It is a marriage ceremony just like the Kumbh Vivah. The marriage takes place with a banana tree or a peepal tree.
Performing either one of the three vivah alleviates the obstacles in marriage -- Vivah Dosh -- and then saves the bride from widowhood -- Vaidhavya Dosh – and these can only be addressed by performing any one of above three rituals.
Exceptions and cancellations of Mangal Dosha:

1. If Mars is debilitated. (Mars is debilitated in Cancer sign up to 28 degrees.)
2. If Mars is combust (Mars becomes combust when it is within 17 degrees of the Sun in the same house)
3. If Mars is in own sign of Aries or Scorpio (Aries 12 to 30 degrees and for Scorpio 20 to 30 degrees)
4. If Mars is exalted (Mars is exalted in Capricorn sign up to 28 degrees)
5. If Mars is in Leo in 8th House
6. If Mars is in Sagittarius in 12th House.
7. If Mars is aspected by a benefic.
8. If a strong benefic is placed in the 9th House
9. If Mars is exalted or in its own sign in Navmansa chart.
10. If boy and girl both are ‘Manglik’ (here it is very important to get advice from a good astrologer because even if both are manglik the effects may not be getting cancelled)
 The bad effects of Mangal Dosh can be reduced with the help of astrological remedies which would generally include the application of Pooja, Mantras, Gemstones and Charities and these remedies are different for different individuals depending upon the horoscope. Yet some simple remedies will be discussed and given in the next blog.
