The Jupiter-Moon connection is placed in the category of extraordinary yoga in Vedic astrology. The name, fame and money are drawn automatically towards the native who born with this planetary combination. This planetary combination becomes effective when the Jupiter and Moon are situated in full effect and without any effect of malefic planets. If the Ascendant is in Cancer or Sagittarius or Pisces or Aries or Scorpio, it is considered with good effect.
In the 12 houses of a horoscope, if the Jupiter and Moon get co-existed in a house, it makes the Gaja Kesari Yoga. If Jupiter is sitting in the 4th, 7th and 10th house in the centre position from the position of the Moon also makes Gaja Kesari Yoga. This yoga is basically formed by the combination of Jupiter and the Moon. If Jupiter becomes the owner of the centre or triangle position, the effect of the yoga becomes optimum. Similarly, if the Moon is sitting in its own house, the effect of the yoga remains with the immense result.
This yoga provides miraculous results provided the Jupiter is not in 0o -1o, or 29o-30o, the Jupiter should not be debilitated, low powered and harmful for the Rashi. The house placement and degree placement are a very important thing for this yoga. In this case, both of the planets Moon and Jupiter below 1o and more than 29o is considered sleeping and not beneficial for this yoga.
The natives born in Gaja Kesari Yoga will have various qualities and status in life like politeness, consciousness, qualitative character, a follower of traditional values, multiple friends, liked by everyone, famous in the society, talented, bold character, meritorious, knowledgeable, having knowledge in multiple subjects, happy in family life, live life like a king, having children, wealthy, high ranked officer, multiple happiness, love to travel, love to eat sweets, remain physically fit, glamourous etc.
The Jupiter-Moon connection in the 2nd house, 5th house, 8th house and 11th house also make this yoga, but the result will not be the same as the previous one. Similarly, this yoga is also formed when the Jupiter-Moon combination is in the 3rd house, 6th house, 9th house and 12th house. But, the potentiality of this yoga decreased in these cases because the 3rd, 6th, 8th and 12th houses do not support wealth, fame and affluent money generally.
Gaja means the elephant and Kesari mean the lion. Just as the elephant and the lion have immense courage and power, in the same way, having Gaja Kesari Yoga in the horoscope a person is respected in the society by attaining the high rank and prestige.
Now, I am analyzing the effects on the 12 Lagnas or Ascendants of a horoscope in this Jupiter-Moon connection (Gaja Kesari Yoga).

If the Jupiter becomes powerful and without connection to any malefic planet, the native can be benefited with sudden wealth and land etc. because the lord of 8th house denotes unexpected gain in powerful condition.
