Below, I am going to give real horoscopes of people alive and not some ancient people so that you can understand and judge for yourself whether these things are fake or not. I have many of them but will be sharing only few because of the constraints obviously understood.
It is believed that Mangal dosha occurs when Mars is placed in the 12, 1, 4, 7, 8 houses from the ascendant. In Vedic astrology, it is supposed to be seen from Moon and Venus. It is considered most harmful from Venus i.e. when Mars is placed in these houses from Venus. The general implications of the Mangal dosha are summed up as follows:
- There is always a marital discord.
- Chances of divorce is maximum.
- Death of spouse is likely.
- Physical abuse is possible by the spouse.
