Gemstones are of great significance in Astrology. They are not only important for aesthetic reasons but also because they share a connection with Planets in Astrology and thus with us. And one among those gemstones is Red Coral, which also goes by the names Praval or Moonga.

There are many benefits of wearing Moonga. This red colour shiny stone is different from others stones both in quality and its place of existence. Moonga gemstone is an astral stone that happens deep in the sea. Other gemstones like Diamond, Ruby, etc. meanwhile are the products of mines on the Earth’s plains.

Red coral or Lal Moonga in astrology is ruled by the planet Mars. Planet Mars in astrology is associated with energy, vitality and other traits like desires, actions, passion, aggression and sexual desires of a person.

Mars is also called the God of warfare and commander of the armies of God. A strong presence of Mars in Kundli can positively affect one’s life. And this effect of Mars flourishes if you wear Red Coral.

Also, the Red Coral gemstone comprises Mangalya Balam, which means marriage compatibility. If you are facing issues in marriage, it is likely for astrologers to recommend you a Moonga stone ring.

Who should Wear Moonga as per Astrology?

In Vedic astrology, Gemstones are recommended as per the ascendant of the person. They can also be recommended based on the prevailing situation. For example, Red coral stone is usually recommended when the planet Mars is ill-disposed in one’s birth chart. Wearing Moonga stone in such a situation helps the wearer become more courageous in nature.

For anyone who doesn’t know what is an ascendant. The simple answer is that your first house is your ascendant also called Lagan. You can be of Taurus ascendant, Libra ascendant, Scorpio ascendant and so on. To find your ascendant, simply look into the first house of the natal chart. Your ascendant would be mentioned there.

Moving ahead, Moonga gemstone is worn by people during Mahadasha and Antardasha periods too. Wearing Mooonga stone benefits if worn when the planet Mars is afflicted by planets such as Saturn, Sun, Rahu and Ketu.

However, one must always remember that not every gemstone is beneficial for every native. So before deciding who should wear Moonga gemstone, it is best to consult an astrologer.

Now, in brief, we will see which ascendant should wear Red coral gemstone and which ascendant must not wear Moonga.

Who should not wear Moonga gemstone?

Taurus Ascendant – Mars is the Lord of the 7th and 12th houses if your ascendant is Taurus. Hence astrologers recommend that a Taurus ascendant must never wear Moonga. However, in case Mars is in Aries, Scorpio or Capricorn, one can wear Red coral.

Gemini Ascendant – Mars is not a beneficial planet for Gemini natives as it occupies the 6th and 11th house in their natal chart. Here, Mars can create problems that would be hard to deal with. Thus, this ascendant must not wear Coral.

Virgo Ascendant – The Red Coral ring is a big no if you belong to Virgo ascendant. Here, planet Mars is the Lord of the 3rd and 8th houses. A strong Mars here can have malefic effects.

Libra ascendant – Moonga benefits will not be present for a Libra ascendant as planet Mars is the Lord of the 2nd house and the 7th house. This is a malefic situation that can bring bad luck for Libra ascendant.

Capricorn ascendant – A Capricorn ascendant should not wear Lal Moonga Ring as Mars is the Lord of the 4th house and the 11th house. Wearing coral in such a situation can create relationship problems.

Aquarius ascendant – Moonga is not beneficial for Aquarius ascendant too. Here, the planet Mars is the Lord of the 3rd and 10th house.

Which ascendant should wear Moonga gemstone?

Aries ascendant – Planet Mars is the Lord of the ascendant house and the 8th house. So wearing red coral will affect you positively. If you are an Aries ascendant with Mars in the first, third, fifth, sixth, ninth, tenth or eleventh house, then you must wear Red Coral.

Sagittarius ascendant Benefits of wearing red Moonga will be on a Sagittarius ascendant if Mars is camping in the first, third, fifth, sixth, ninth, tenth or eleventh house.

Cancer ascendant – For a Cancer ascendant, Mars is the Lord of the 5th and 10th house. Wearing a Red Coral Ring can improve the native’s intelligence, power and knowledge.

Leo ascendant – Mars is very friendly to Leo natives. It is the Lord of the 4th and 9th house. Wearing coral gemstone, if you are a Leo ascendant, can empower your friend circle.

Scorpio ascendant – A Scorpio ascendant must consider wearing red coral throughout their life. This is because the planet Mars is the Lord of your ascendant.

Pisces ascendant – Red coral is a highly beneficial gemstone for Pisces ascendant. Here Mars rules the 2nd and 9th house. Wearing this powerful gem can bring good luck, wealth, money, name and reputation.

Bhavanarayana, producer of Meghasandesham suggested to Dukkipati Madhusudhana Rao to watch the Bengali film Agni Pariksha (1954). Madhusudhana bought the remake rights after being impressed with the film and approached Atreya to write the screenplay and dialogues for the film. One of the major changes the maker brought in was while in the original version the girl's father dies of shock, in Mangalya Balam, his character was retained till the last frame. Mangalya Balam was said to be the first Telugu film to shoot in Ooty and it was also Savitri's first visit to the hill town. The Tamil version Manjal Mahimai was simultaneously made retaining all the leading actors and technicians with two changes to the cast – K. A. Thangavelu and K. Balaji replacing Relangi and Ramanamurthy respectively.[1]


Mangalya Balam was released on 7 January 1959 and for the first time in the history of Telugu cinema, the hundred days function was held in an open arena, the Municipal High School grounds, Vijayawada with thousands of cine-fans participating and presided over by the then Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Kasu Brahmananda Reddy. Manjal Mahimai was released on 14 January 1959 and ran for a hundred days.[1]
