Sign of Pisces makes you independent and Libra makes you dependent (Vedic Astrology)
The sign of Libra actually prevents you from being independent as it is a sign of mutual dependence. For example, if you are getting married and if you have invited some of your friends to the marriage party then you will be bound to go to your friends’ marriages as well as they helped you out when you needed them for your marriage party. So here when you expect something from others then you are dependent on others and then you need to pay back and that is what Libra is (mutual dependence).
Now suppose you decided not to invite any of your friends to your marriage, say you decided to go with court marriage, then you are also not bound to go your friends’ marriage parties if they invite you. This is called independence and that is what the sign of Pisces is. People try to do everything on their own when their planets fall in the sign of Pisces. However, this is not the case with the Libra sign.
That is the reason Libra ascendant people (or people with Moon in Libra) are mostly always dependent on others as Libra is a sign of dependency while the Pisces ascendant natives (or people with Moon in Pisces) often are independent. When Venus is in Pisces you could get married on your own as Venus is a planet of marriage and Pisces is a sign of independence (not dependent on others).
If Virgo is a sign of slavery then Pisces is a sign of independence and that is the reason these two signs are opposite to each other. That is also the reason people with > Mars in Pisces are seen as freedom fighters as Mars is a fighter and Pisces is a sign of freedom or independence. Since the sign of Pisces rules the 12th house in the default zodiac so 12th house is also the house of independence or freedom.
The sign of Cancer (ruled by Moon) falls in the 12th house of independence for a Leo ascendant and that is the reason Leo ascendant natives always want to be independent (alone) and that is also the reason Sun (ruler of Leo) gets debilitated in the sign of Libra as Libra is a sign of dependency. The break of relationships is also nothing but getting independent and that is the reason the sign of Pisces is also a sign of separation. When Venus is in Pisces or 12th house then relationships or partnerships or job contracts may break and you may even get unemployed as Pisces is also a sign of unemployment. If Venus is your 10th house or 6th house lord then the profession could suffer but this is not always so.
You can check the birth chart of a Libra ascendant and you will find that the sign of Pisces falls on their 6th house of disputes and fights and so these natives always fight for freedom (independence) as Pisces is a sign of freedom. Mahatma Gandhi was also a freedom fighter and you can see his birth chart and he was a Libra Ascendant with the 6th lord Jupiter placed in the 7th house in the sign of Aries and 7th lord Mars placed in the 1st house in the sign of Libra which is a sign of equality and justice. Jupiter is a planet of freedom as Jupiter rules the sign of Pisces which is a sign of freedom and now when Jupiter is in Aries it means to be aggressive in getting freedom as Aries is an aggressive sign.
Freedom means mukti in the Hindi language and mukti means salvation in English and that is the reason Pisces is also a sign of salvation. That is the reason debilitated Mercury (Mercury in Pisces) often makes us jobless (freedom from work) as Mercury is a planet of jobs as Mercury originally rules the 6th house of jobs. When Mercury is in Pisces then such natives often talk about freedom at the workplace or working independently. Public speakers and political leaders and humanitarians may also have their Mercury placed in the sign of Pisces as they often communicate or talk about freedom or independence.
When Mercury is transiting through the sign of Pisces then you may get freedom from work such as holidays. Even if your 6th lord is transiting through the sign of Pisces or the 12th house then you could get holidays from work as holidays are nothing but freedom from work. When Venus is placed in the sign of Pisces then these people often talk about financial freedom as Pisces is a sign of freedom and Venus is a planet of finances.
In olden days, many people raised voice against the slavery and they were having their Mercury placed in the sign of Pisces as Mercury is a planet of slavery (as Mercury rules Virgo and Virgo is a sign of slavery such as child labor) and Pisces is a sign of freedom. When Jupiter transits through the sign of Virgo then people often get rid of their slavery such as releasing from imprisonment as imprisonment is nothing but slavery.
In other words, we can also say that Virgo is a sign of imprisonment. For a libra ascendant, if the ascendant lord, Venus, and Saturn are transiting through the sign of Virgo in the 12th house then imprisonment or slavery is likely but only if the planets in the birth chart are supportive or indicative of that (such as Saturn and Venus placed in the 12th house in the sign of Virgo). Saturn is another planet that represents the slaves or employees or servants. Saturn in Virgo is the major placement for imprisonment or slavery or job or difficult work.
Jupiter is a planet of freedom as Jupiter rules the sign of Pisces and Pisces is a sign of freedom as mentioned before and when Jupiter is placed in the sign of Leo then also people talk a lot about financial freedom as people who are working in the financial markets (such as stock markets) are often seen from this placement of > Jupiter in Leo as Leo is a sign of wealth and Jupiter is also a planet of treasure and that is the reason people who are into wealth management, such as fund managers, are seen from this placement and they often talk about financial freedom.
Freedom and discount are also the same things and when Mercury is transiting through the sign of Pisces then people get discounts on shopping. This is because Pisces is a sign of discount and Mercury is a planet of marketing and advertising as Mercury rules the sign of Gemini which is a sign of marketing and advertising. So, you should always shop when Mercury is transiting through the sign of Pisces. Even if Venus is transiting through the sign of Pisces then also you get a discount on clothing and food and luxury items as Venus represents all these things. If Moon is transiting through the sign of Pisces then you could get discounts on food, shelters (offices & homes), and vehicles.
When Sun is placed in the sign of Pisces then this placement sometimes gives freedom from education and training or no education as Pisces is a sign of freedom (or giving up) and the Sun is a planet of education and training. You may get rest from training in sports also when Sun is transiting through the sign of Pisces. So sometimes when you want to know when you will get some rest then look for planets when they will transit through the sign of Pisces and at that time you can expect some freedom from work.
