The classical astrological texts praise this yoga by describing: Sahsta, Ashta, Vyaya adhipe sahashta, ashta, vyaya sthana gathe Vipareetha-raja yoga muchyathe; akhanda raja-yoga prapthi na samsayaha = “This yoga confers learning, longevity, fame and prosperity.
The person will have illustrious friends, be successful in all ventures, a conqueror of foes, and a great celebrity.” She gained the Victory and World Championship by defeating (causing loss to) her own sister Ms. Serene Williams in the final match.

Venus has all these benefits in her life. The 6th house is Aquarius; its lord is Saturn; he is in 12th house; the 8th house is Aries; its lord is Mars; he is in 12th house.

This Vipareeta Raja Yoga is enhanced thousand-fold because the Moon is one of the four planets present in the 12th house.

Raja Yogas give a meterioc rise in career, business and financial prosperity and overall success in all aspects of life. Gaja-kesari yoga, Chandra-Manglala yoga and the like.
These yogas contribute to her ability to earn millions of money easily and accumulate huge wealth even though it is in the 12th house (of losses) from birth lagna. The combined benefits of all the above aspects made her very happy, healthy and a multi-billionaire.
