Mangal dosh, also known as Manglik dosha or Kuja dosha, is a belief in Vedic astrology that occurs when the planet Mars (Mangal) is placed in certain houses in the birth chart, particularly the first, second, fourth, seventh, eighth, or twelfth house. It is believed to bring about negative effects in marriage, such as causing discord, delays, or even potential harm to the spouse. 

Astrological remedies to overcome Mangal dosh vary widely and depend on the severity of the dosh and individual beliefs. One should consult an astrologer to get detailed analysis. Here are some common remedies suggested by astrologers include:

Mangal Shanti Puja: Performing specific pujas or rituals to appease Mars can help mitigate the negative effects of Mangal dosh. This may involve chanting of mantras, offering prayers, and conducting rituals under the guidance of a knowledgeable priest.

Wearing gemstones: Wearing a red coral gemstone (Mars' gemstone) after proper consultation with an astrologer is believed to pacify the adverse effects of Mangal dosh.

Fasting: Observing fasts on Tuesdays, the day associated with Mars, is believed to appease the planet and reduce its malefic effects.

Marriage with a compatible partner: One common belief is that Mangal dosh gets canceled if both partners have the dosh in their charts, as it's believed that the negative energies neutralize each other. Hence, marrying someone who also has Mangal dosh is considered a remedy.

Performing charitable acts: Donating red-colored items, such as red clothes, lentils, or sweets, on Tuesdays is believed to appease Mars and reduce its negative influence.

Reciting mantras: Chanting specific mantras dedicated to Lord Hanuman or Mars, such as the Hanuman Chalisa or the Navagraha mantra, is believed to alleviate the effects of Mangal dosh.

It's important to note that while these remedies are commonly suggested, their effectiveness is subjective and depends on individual belief systems. Additionally, consulting with a knowledgeable astrologer for personalized guidance is recommended before undertaking any remedial measures.
