Effects of Adhi Yoga:
With Adhi yoga, a person will be polite and trust worthy, will have an enjoyable and happy life, surrounded by luxuries and affluence, will defeat competition and will be healthy in body and mind and live a long life.
It is simply a corollary that if a person qualifies for all the above, he must have reached, on his own merit, a very high position of much power and status in career and in society, and his opinions and views will be good for people and will enjoy much sway.

How the yoga forms & which houses are involved in your birth chart in its formation?
If benefic planets [Jupiter, Venus and unblemished Mercury] are situated in the 6th, 7th and 8th houses from Moon [while Moon is free from any affliction in the birth chart], the combination goes under the name of Adhi Yoga.

Even if these planets are present in two of these houses or even in only one house [instead of being in the three houses as mentioned above], Adhi Yoga is still valid but to a reduced degree.
In your birth chart, you have Mercury [with Sun] in the 6th house from your Moon sign in your birth chart.
The houses 7th and 8th from Moon are occupied by strong malefic planets only.
Mercury is very ill placed in Aries sign while his dispositor planet Mars is placed with Saturn.
Mercury has nearly no digbala [directional strength – quite inactive for giving good results] and has very poor auspiciousness.

On the other hand Moon [the other yoga planet] is debilitated and very closely conjunct with malefic Rahu.
Thus a very ineffective and theoretical Adhi Yoga is formed in your horoscope.
Thus there will not be any direct or meaningful effect of Adhi Yoga in any area of your life during the five year period under analysis, despite the rule of main period of Moon [Moon is much afflicted] as no sub period of Moon or Mercury is applicable at this stage.

Principles on which Adhi-Yoga operates:
This yoga involves all the four natural benefic planets viz. Moon, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter combining with each other in such manners that Mercury, Venus and Jupiter protect and promote Moon and thus strengthen and elevate the foundation of the horoscope.
The most basic rationale behind the configuration defined above is to further strengthen the Moon in a comprehensive and intricate manner.

The focal point of attention is to strengthen the Moon and the given position of the benefic planets will be able to achieve this task.
Any benefic planet present in the 7th house from Moon will obviously project his direct benefic aspect on Moon.
Any benefic planet placed in the 6th house or in the 8th house from Moon will project his benefic aspect on the opposite houses ie on the 12th house or 2nd house from Moon.
Thus the houses immediately before or after Moon are also auspiciously strengthened.
This amounts to something much similar to a Subha Kartari Yoga around Moon while Moon herself has already been promoted by the planet in the 7th house from Moon.

As a result of promoting and protecting the Moon by three benefic planets, the arrangement will further enhance the status of the entire horoscope.
However there is a salient hint of caution in the formation of this yoga [even when Moon is basically free from any affliction in the birth chart].
The caution is regarding the placement of Jupiter in either the 6th or in the 8th house from Moon, while Moon is not placed in an angle from ascendant.
The caution in the above location of Jupiter is related to the formation of Sakata Yoga between Jupiter and Moon, since Sakata yoga can minimize or even nullify the good effects of Adhi Yoga.

How to best utilize Adhi-yoga for success:
Your natural intelligence and proficiency in any area of life is of high order.
But you may not get the full benefit of these or of the Adhi Yoga, if you do not develop more self control and avoid sudden anger and combative actions [Saturn and Mars combination in birth chart, both placed in a star of Rahu, is in the 8th house of sudden rush of negative energy].

The basic aggressive or combative trend of your nature must be curtailed if not entirely avoided.
Otherwise this will continue to affect your patience too easily and will also disturb your physical vitality that is necessary for sustained hard work, good performance and happiness in life.
You will also often find that you have much mental confusion and emotional imbalance along with weakness of health [debilitated Moon closely conjunct with Rahu].

This unevenness of thoughts will adversely affect your observation, interpretation and speech and action in all matters or events of life.
This emotional imbalance has to be banished by your own free will or at least reduced to the extent possible.
You will also observe that in your speech and other communication you will frequently go to one extreme or the other of any issue, event or discussion and will refuse to remain on the middle of the road [this is due to Jupiter being placed at the center of the nodal axis].

This tendency will often bring you to face a wall and your desires and ambitions will be strongly opposed or even defeated while you will lose your popularity and good image.
Career will be the area that will be most affected if you are not in control of yourself.
Therefore such reactions need to be willfully curtailed or even banished wherever and whenever possible.

You will need to strike a balance between the two sets of extremes.
Cooperate to get cooperation and always follow the path of give and take, and tolerance.
Take regular small breaks in your work or your health can be affected and will thus slow down your overall progress.

Things to avoid for better success:
Avoid hasty speech and action.
Do not go for any arguments with seniors or colleagues.
Do not expect your level of commitment or hard work from your team members or subordinates as this will not happen.
Expecting less will give you more peace of mind and good health as frustration and anger will be avoided.
Avoid all varieties of controversies at all times.

Worship Lord Siva [for Moon] everyday and also chant “OM Namah Sivaya” as frequently as possible.
Chant or listen to Sri Vishnu Sahashranama daily morning and evening [for Mercury].
Perform Rahu-Ketu Shanti [propitiation] for pleasing the nodes.

Times in life when Adhi-yoga effects would manifest:
The next five years [till 15 May 2021] will see the main period of Moon and sub periods of Rahu, Jupiter and Saturn till 31 May 2018 and beyond.
Thus yoga effects will operate very feebly throughout [main period of Moon cannot take precedence as it highly afflicted as given above] and there will not be any sub period of Moon or Mercury at any time during the five years.
Till 27 Oct 2017, transit Saturn in Scorpio will be very negatively placed with respect to Moon [conjunction of transit Saturn with afflicted Moon and 6:8 locations between transit Saturn and natal Mercury.

These locations will suppress the yoga effects of Moon and Mercury.
You may not see any specific progress in career or in other areas of life till this date but the yoga will still try to guide you with sharpness of mind and right attitude to positively deal with any issues in all areas of your life but this support may not be enough.
You will work hard but your work will not be appreciated and you will face several restrictions.
Also there will be several communication failures and major differences with superiors.

After 14 Aug 2016, the effects will be somewhat better due to transit Jupiter and you may get a fair hike in your pay.
During period after 27 Oct 2017, transit Saturn will move into Sagittarius and will become slightly less obstructive in the 2nd house from ascendant and from Moon.
This position will run till 25 Jan 2020.
But at this stage transit Saturn will be right opposite to natal Saturn and Mars and thus he will much obstruct or can even eliminate any possible good effect, despite being in trine to Natal Mercury [Mercury is highly afflicted].

Due to the yoga effects failing to be effective at this stage and the status of the overall chart, the major transits will fail to promote your good luck, especially in the area of progress in occupation and this status will last till 25 Jan 2020.
However transit Jupiter will give positive support during 2018 and 2019.
You may not get good opportunities to advance your career through a change of job or a better and more extended role in current job.

But your performance will be quite good and your income will increase well.
Savings and investments can improve, provided you stay totally careful to avoid wasteful expenses and speculative investments.
But social life will see revival of earlier associations but these will not be good for you and you should strictly avoid them.
After 27 Oct 2017 social life will not be successful or enjoyable and most existing associations will break down.

Marital life will not improve from its existing level of differences.
Health of spouse will not be good and can be much affected.
After 25 Jan 2020 till 31 May 2021, transit Saturn will be quite better placed and capable of giving good results, especially in career and income.
Change to a better job or a better role can be possible if you try very hard but such progress will be delayed beyond this period.

But in any job, current or new, you will face major issues of strong differences with seniors and job may see some instability.
Your health will remain normal but strained throughout and some general debility and common functional ailments are expected.
