THE CHARACTERS OF CHEVVAI.(MARS)
Chevvai Bagawan helps to gain confidence
and boldness. He is a sincere and hard worker. His color is RED. He can create problems,
difficulties and petty fights between the couple, if the horoscopes are not matched
properly. Even though Chevvai is a Papa Graham he does not harm always. He will
do good when he is associated with good planets or looked at by them. He tends to
do more harm when he is with Papa Grahams or when seen by them.
Kuja Dosha is also called (Tamil Speak
People Called Sevvai Dosham,Mangalya
Dosham),Manglik , Manglik Dosha , Mangal Dosha , Bhauma Dosha etc.
SEVVAI DOSHAM is formed when Mars sits
in specific houses in the Rashi chart. So he influences some particular houses by
his placement and aspects. There are specific rules to check for Kuja Dosha while
there are other factors which break or weaken thisSEVVAI
DOSHAMis said to kill the spouse, but actually
it does not happen this way always. Depending on the strength of the Dosha, it creates
different scale or kinds of problems accordingly.
It is generally said that in a chart
[Irrespective to male or female native] When Mars is found in any of the houses
1, 4, 7, 8, 12 - KUJA DOSHAM forms. Some
South Indian astrologers also take the 2nd house in addition - while most do not
agree to this. [Mars(SEVVAI)in second can
indicate bold or bitter speech, or using slang words etc.]
Mars is a planet of battle, war and
fight. He is Tamasic in nature and belongs to the caste of warriors [Kshatriya].
He in general is fond of fights, battles and is given to anger. That is why, very
naturally, when he takes over the marital matters, he likes to put quarrel, fight
and 'battle' in marriage, which disturb marital happiness. Mars(SEVVAI)
is also he planet of over sex drive, too much boldness, and too fierce in nature
- all of them are against a peaceful marriage.
The actual reason behind why these
houses produce Sevvai Dosham should be understood
logically. That is why I am giving house by house explanation -
Mars in the 1st house – Mars(SEVVAI) is a planet of boldness, and kind of
dictator in nature. That is why Mars in ascendant can make a person too bold, aggressive,
or too dominating. He might want to be the all in all in his family, while not paying
a good attention to what others [Or his spouse] are saying. He will be easily involved
in fights and will express himself rather directly. He might be also of short temper.
This causes the major problem.
Mars will also aspect the houses 4
(Happiness, family life), 7 (Spouse, married life) and 8 (Marital tie) and thus
create problem in all these areas with ease. He will quickly create fights on unimportant
Mars in the 4th house - The planet
of battle is in the house of family life, so battle in family! Mars deprives the
native from domestic harmony, there are misunderstandings among the family members.
Mars will cast his 4th aspect on the 7th house of spouse and marital life. In 4th
house Mars loses his strength for direction and creates more and more trouble in
Mars in the 7th house - There will
be clash and unhappiness in married life and this is perhaps the worst of all .
Sevvai Dosham- a direct hit. Mars is a planet
of abuse and violation and Mars being in 7th house very possibly can give violation
in married life. In a female chart it might give physical or excessive mental torture
from the husband. There will be also fight for the dominating power, and there might
be lack of harmony in the sexual issues. The sexual and emotional needs of the partners
might not match or might have a great difference. Mars might give over sexual desire
/ sickly sexual desire to the native or to his spouse and create mess in marital
life for this issue. It might give a short tempered spouse.
Mars in the 8th house - The 8th house
rules marital tie, from the 8th house we see the possibility of death of the spouse.
Mars is the planet of accident, operation, assault from weapons and bleeding etc.
- all of the things are ruled by 8th house. So being in the 8th house, Mars will
be very eager to develop these tendencies. He might cause death of spouse, possibly
through accident, operation or any other mishaps. Thus it can indicate an early
death of the spouse. 8th house is also a house of hidden issues / immoral acts and
Mars here can make the native / spouse be involved in hidden and sinful acts. When
they come forward, storm blows in married life.
Mars in the 12th house - 12th house
rules all kinds of losses and also the bed pleasure, i.e. sexual enjoyment. Mars
here can give a native sickly desires, or illegal unions with other people. Again,
Mars will aspect the 7th house with it's 8th aspect.
Counters to .
There is no need to be really terrified
if Mars is found in the houses 1/4/7/8/12. There are many facts that can counter
or even nullify the Dosha. The most popular way to nullify this Dosha is to find
a partner or spouse who has the same Dosha. It is believed that if both the partners
have this Dosha, then the Dosha is nullified. Experience shows that this might be
However, there are certain facts in
the chart itself that nullify the DOSHAM
# Lordship is a very important fact
here to consider. For the natives Cancer and Leo, Mars is very benefic being a Yoga
Karaka. For natives Aries and Scorpio, for being the ascendant lord he will do good,
on the other hand for ruling a Dusthana, he will not be purely benefic. For a Pisces
native, he becomes the 9th lord as well as a mild killer (Maraka). However, Mars
will undoubtedly produce strong SEVVAI DOSHAM to the ascendants he is a malefic
for. (Virgo for an example.)
a. If Mars is in 2nd house in any
of the signs of Mercury, i.e., Gemini or Virgo. b. If Mars is in 4th house in own
sign, i.e., Aries or Scorpio. c. If Mars is in 7th house in exaltation or debilitation,
i.e., Capricorn or Cancer. d. If Mars is in 8th house in any of the signs of Jupiter,
i.e., Sagittarius or Pisces. e. If Mars is in 12th house in any of the signs of
Venus, i.e., Taurus or Libra. f. If Mars is in any house in Aquarius or Leo.
However, some hold the opinion that
these conditions though weaken the DOSHAM
but does not completely nullify. I feel that it might be correct.
The position of Venus and Mars is
very important in judging marital relations. Mars whose element is fire rules marriage.
Where he is badly situated or associated in the horoscope of a male or female, it
follows that the sacerdotal fire gets extinguished soon. Such unfavourable situation
goes under the name of Sevvai Dosham.
It must be noted that in determining
marriage adaptability between two parties, there are several elements of much more
importance than Sevvai Dosham. And the evil
influences accuring from the bad position of Mars is only
one of the several elements.
It is unfortunate that throughout
Indiaespecially in the Tamil areas, much
is made of the so-called Kuja Dosham and this bugbear has been the means of destroying
the happiness of many families by preventing marriages otherwise very eligible and
anxiously wished for. So far as our humble experience goes it is only in the Kerala
Sastra that mention is made of Kuja Dosha. The stanza runs thus: Dhana vyayecha
pathale jamitre chashtame kuja; Strinam bharthru vinasamcha bharthunam strivinasanam.
This means: - "If Mars is in the 2nd, 12th, 4th, 7th and 8th houses in the horoscope
of the female, the death of the husband will occur; similar situation in the husband's
horoscope causes the death of wife."
The Lagna represents body, the Moon,
mind and Venus, sexual relations. Therefore, the houses have to be reckoned with
reference to all the three, viz., Lagna, Moon and Venus. The dosha (evil) is considered
weak when it exists from Lagna, a little stronger from the Moon and still more powerful
The second house signifies family;
the twelth represents comforts and pleasures of bed. The fourth rules sukha or happiness.
The seventh indicates husband and eighth represents longevity of the wife or husband.
Hence the position of Mars in these houses is supposed to produce this peculiar
dosham or evil. If Kuja Dosham obtains in the horoscopes of both the bride and bridegroom,
the dosham gets cancelled. There are, of course, many good combinations which assure
marital felicity and much importance need not be given to Kuja Dosham.
Granting that Kuja Dosham is a factor
whose occurrence should not be ignored, there are antidotes which are not generally
known to the rank and file of Hindu astrologers. The exceptions are: Mars in the
2nd can be said to be bad provided such 2nd house is any other than Gemini and Virgo;
in the 12th the dosha is produced when such 12th house is any other than Taurus
and Libra in the 4th house Mars causes dosha provided the house falls in any sign
other than Aries and Scorpio; when the 7th is other than Capricorn and Cancer, the
dosha is given rise to; and Mars gives bad effects in the 8th, provided the 8th
is any other than Sagittarius and Pisces. In Aquarius and Leo, Mars produces no
dosha whatsoever. The dosha is counteracted by the conjunction of Mars and Jupiter
or Mars and the Moon; or by the presence of Jupiter or Venus in the ascendant.
Thus, it will be seen that Kuja Dosha
does not deserve that consideration which is now being paid to it. In the consideration
of marriage adaptability there are various other factors which should be carefully
We have dealt above fairly exhaustively
with the question of marriage adaptability and have tried to avoid controversial
issues as the book is intended for the common man who wishes to take advantage of
the astrological rules to his benefit.
