Michael Jackson’s horoscope (Chart 3) is a perfect example of the kind of results Adhi Yoga can produce in terms of riches and celebrity status.
Chart 3: Michael Jackson: Born August 29, 1958, at 19h.33m.at Gary (41 N 36, 87 W 21) with a balance of 12 years 3 months 21 days of Jupiter Dasa at birth.
The Moon occupies the Ascendant Aquarius with Venus in the 6th and Mercury in the 7th from him. Mercury is the 5th lord and Venus, the 9th lord and Yogakaraka. Jackson occupied an unrivalled place in the world of music with his earnings running into millions of dollars through his albums and performances.
The Sun in the 7th from the Moon is good in that it gives Pakshabala or digital strength to the Moon, the centre of the Adhi Yoga. Secondly being Vargottama and in his own sign Leo, the Sun gains strength which he imparts to the Moon benefiting the latter. Mercury in the 7th from the Moon is retrograde which makes him extra strong. Venus in the 6th from the Moon is free of combustion and as a Yogakaraka for both the Ascendant and the Moon-sign acquires two-fold strength to shower his benefic influence on the chart augmenting the Adhi Yoga manifold.
Jackson’s chart does not have Jupiter in either the 6th, 7th or the 8th from the Moon which is a requirement for the Yoga to be a full-fledged one. However, it is seen that even two of the benefics in the specified positions from the Moon can generate the Yoga which may described as a partial Adhi Yoga. In most of the cases, it is rare that all the 3 benefics Mercury, Venus and Jupiter are involved.
The important point to note in is the digital strength of the Moon as an absolutely necessary factor for the Yoga to be present. So, in most cases of Adhi Yoga, the Moon would be either moving towards the Full Moon phase itself or just moving out of this phase.

In other words what the Yoga requires is the digital strength of the Moon when automatically, Mercury and Venus cannot but occupy the 6th, 7th or the 8th from the Moon as these two planets cannot really get away too far from the Sun. Additionally, Jupiter’s inclusion in the Yoga adds to the totality of its magnitude and strength.
When the Moon has waxing strength, the element of luck assumes significance in the life of the native. This is a general rule in predictive astrology. This kind of strength of the Moon has been given in all classical works as an Arishtabhanga influence or capable of keeping evil at bay and as strengthening the chart as a whole. Jataka Parijata (Chapter IV, Sloka 72) says when:
चन्द्रः संपूर्णगात्रस्तु सर्वारिष्टहन्ता
That when the Moon has his digits full (waxing strength), he becomes a destroyer of all evil.
And this is also what Adhi Yoga which, by definition, is centred in a Moon with digital strength does. Though the classical works attribute royal power (kingship), political position (ministership) or military authority (commander-in-chief) to the Yoga, these results need not necessarily accrue as a study of several cases of Adhi Yoga has shown. The results of the Yoga are basically riches and the clout and status that money can bring with it.
