A chart depicting the position of planets as seen from earth at the time of an individual's birth is called a `Horoscope,' or `kundli' in Hindi.
The earth moves from west to east and hence the Sun appears to move from east to west. The 360 degree circle of the zodiac is divided into 12 parts of 30 degrees each called the zodiac signs. According to the motion of rotation of the earth the Sun appears to cover a distance of one degree of the zodiac in each day. Hence it takes 360 days or a year for the Sun to cover the 12 zodiac signs in 12 months.
The zodiac signs are in the sequence of Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer and so forth, with the last sign as Pisces.

Sun Sign:

The position of the Sun in a particular zodiac sign at an individual's birth is called his/her Sun sign.

Moon Sign:
The position of the Moon in a particular zodiac sign at birth is called the Moon sign, or Rashi in Hindi.

Rising Sign:
At the time of an individual's birth the zodiac sign rising in the east is called the Rising sign, or the Ascendant, or Lagna in Hindi.

The 12 zodiac signs in a birth chart are called the Houses. These are called " houses" because the position of a planet or planets in a particular sign is referred to as being situated in a particular house.
The Ascendant by virtue of it being rising in the east is called the 1st house. The sequence of the 12 houses is shown in the diagram. In one day, or 24 hours, each of the 12 zodiac signs will rise in the ascendant in a sequence. That means, each zodiac sign of 30 degree each, takes about 2 hours to complete its sojourn in the 1st house. Hence 12 signs of 30 degrees each will take 24 hours to complete the full circle.12 signs x 30 degree each= 360 degrees.

Cardial Points

The east, west, north and south are the four cardinal points. As shown in the diagram these are the 1st, 7th, 4th and the 10th houses. These four houses are considered most important in the study of astrology.

1st House:
In Indian astrology the 1st house is also called Janam, or the birth, for, the 1st house represents the birth of the individual, - the Self.

7th House
This signifies the opposite sex, or the partner of the individual.

4th House
Indicates one's mother.

10th House:
The 10th house is the symbolic representation for individual's father.

Wonder of Birth
Wonder Of Birth:
To illustrate an example of child's birth, look at the diagram.
Assuming that a child is conceived in the mother's womb [4th House] at one degree Aries. It will take 270 degrees or nine months for the Sun to traverse to the birth [Ascendant] in one degree Sagittarius. And we all know a normal time of delivery from conception to birth is nine months. According to Indian astrology the Sun is in the 1st degree of Aries around the 13th of April, and it enters the 1st degree of Sagittarius around the 14th of December. Hence a woman conceiving a child in April is likely to deliver the baby in December.

In terms of Marriage it acquires supreme importance as here it signifies Passion, the Husband, the Marital Knot, sex, etc. Further, the role of Mars in begetting progeny cannot be underestimated.

Formation of Mangalik Dosha in the Horoscope
As per astrological, Mars placement in the 1st,  4th, 7th, 8th or 12th house from ascendant.

Mangalik Dosha and Planets
Mangalik Dosha is considered from the Ascendant as it signifies self, health, longevity, appearance, character, success and failure in life among other things.
Mangalik Dosha is considered from the Moon as it signifies Mind, emotions, infancy, personality, bovines, inclinations and emotions.
Mangalik Dosha is considered from Venus as it signifies marriage, sexual matters, love, beloved and bed pleasures. 

Cancellation Of Mangalik Dosha
Following are the cases where Mars even if it is in  12th, 4th, 7th or 8th house the manglik dosha gets cancelled: - 

1. When Mars is in its own sign (Aries, Scorpio), exalted (Capricorn) or in the houses owned by his friends (Sun, Jupiter, Moon) manglik dosha gets cancelled. 

2. If Mars is in the 2nd house but in Gemini, Virgo sign no dosha. 

3. If Mars is in 12th house but in Taurus, Libra no dosha. 

4. If Mars is in 7th house but in Cancer, Capricorn no dosha. 

5. If Mars is in 8th house but in Sagittarius, Pisces no dosha.

6. For Cancer and Leo ascendant Mars is a yogakaraka wherever it may be no dosha at all. 

7. For Aquarius ascendant Mars in the 4th/8th house no dosha. 

8. If benefic Jupiter or Venus is in ascendant no dosha. 

9. If Mars is in conjunction or aspected by Jupiter or Moon no dosha.

10. If Mars is in conjunction/aspected by Sun, Mercury, Saturn, Rahu no dosha. 

Thus we see that percentage of manglik cases decreases if we consider these factors. 

In consideration of marriage, various factors other than manglik dosha should be carefully be examined for a long and successful marriage.
