Mars/Mangal in the 5th house of a Horoscope
What I have observed over the years that Mangal or Mars draws a lot of attention from non-Astro folks. So I thought of writing down a quick article about Mars’ effects in all the 12 houses. I will try to cover in a very objective manner keeping side my creativity (whatever little) aside.
A Horoscope is called as “Manglik” if Mangal is placed in one of 1, 4, 7, 8, 12 houses; i.e. 5 out 12 people in this world are Manglik (aprx 42%). It indicates that it is not a big deal then? There are various varieties of Mangal coined by Astrologers: Kadak Mangal, Soumya Mangal etc! J Mangal with a Soumya planet like Moon or Venus is usually treated as Soumya. Or Mangal in Guru’s drushti is called Soumya. Even the one with Shani’s drushti is considered Soumya! So basically --- All Manglik varieties are Soumya?! J More on that later.
Mars is the governor of: Blood, Siblings, sports, land, vehicles, speed, aggression, adrenaline, south direction
Mars in the 5th house (Dharma Trikon, Tactical Success, DREAMS, Sports, Achievements, Budhdhi-sthan, Kids/Santati)
The 5th house is part of the Dharma (Duty/responsibilities) trikon. It shows responsibilities in life, tactical success, sports, Budhdhi-sthan (intelligence, studies etc) and most importantly it also shows your Kids (santati-sthan). I have explained the 5th house Tactics, 9th house Strategy and 12th house Vision in my article on Moon-Sun Relationships in a person’s horoscope. Do check it out using search feature. The 5th house shows GO-GETTER approach. In IT terms it shows a development project with specific goals and objectives to be achieved in specific duration! The 6th house shows “Production Support-Maintenance” etc. The 5th house planets make person masters of ACT and EXECUTE and less on strategize /planning.
The Mars or Sun in the 5th house shows stronger/longer upper phalanx of the thumb (execution/force/action) than the middle phalanx which shows planning, logic, and strategy! (The lower phalanx is nothing but Venus mount!)
This is a GREAT Mars position for success in sports and sports related actions. Most of the sports captains (responsible) are born with 5th house Mangal or 9th house Mangal – more in 5th house as SPORTS is about ACTING & EXECUTION. Imran Khan Mars in 5th house in 1st Degree of Sagittarius in Moola nakshatra shows INTENSE SPORTS, siblings and Mom & kids related Karma!!! Blood for Mom (as 4th owner) and 1st kid could show some issues as 1st degree of Moola does show some blood related issues. Sunil Gavaskar has 5th house Mangal in Vrishabh rashi in Mangal’s Nakshatra and so does MS Dhoni! MARS is SPORTS and hence sports related achievements, responsibilities are shown very well in this position of Mars. One of Bela’s friend has 5th house Mars in Kumbh, is 27th born and Aries Sun also – She can be seen completing some long cycling runs or even some 20+ KM marathon etc! J (Her Husband has the 4th house Mangal in a STRONG for Mars house!)
This Mars could obstruct primary education as ability to focus or concentrate is a bit lesser unless this Mars is in Mithun, Tula or Kumbh rashi (AIR Signs) but still from time to time, sports activities or plain simple outgoing nature and “Dhamal” with friends would affects their academics for sure. The education after 12th standard could be ok as they life engineering or mathematics later in the life. So their later life education when Mars’s effect is lesser is much better and focused.
The 1st kid could show early stomach, digestion or some health issues which later on become ok. This Mars has direct impact on the kids both good & bad. Kids are treated as friends and are themselves quite aggressive and straightforward.
A badly placed Mangal would shows blood or some other issues with younger siblings and also kids and also the relative denoted by the house owned by Mars in the horoscope (For Imran Khan it is his Mom and also grand-kids). The badly placed Mangal would also shows some issues with lands, vehicles and some accidents from time to time.
Sachin’s birth time is shown as noon/1 pm etc with Kirk lagna on the net but I am very sure that it is 5th house Mangal and hence Kanya lagna – else he would have played like Kapil Dev (7th house Mangal) for his own pleasure and not with the GREAT responsibility he plays with. All his life he played with great responsibility and tension without enjoying the game as much as Sir Viv Richards or Kapil Dev. This shows a 5th house Mars - Yes it is a GOGETTER mars and WILL get involved with fights and TACTICS etc unlike 9th house strategic Mangal of Rahul Dravid. The 5th house Mangal and Meen Budh has affected his academics anyways – Thanks God for that! J Sachin’s Mars has done neechbhang of his Guru also. His childlike innocence is for sure from his Meen Budh and Aries Sun.
