Different planets in 8th house for Pisces Ascendant (Vedic Astrology)
Several predictions can be done when the sign of Libra falls on the 8th house.
1) Libra is a sign of trade (exchanging something for something else or exchange of goods & services) and 8th house is a very turbulent & risky house. For example, in intraday stock trading there is a lot of turbulence as the price of stocks are unpredictable and also there is a lot of risk involved in intraday trading. So, it could mean a very risky trade when the sign of Libra falls on the 8th house. It could be a trade in stocks or commodities or even currencies. So, this placement could make the Pisces ascendant natives involved in risky trades.
If the 5th lord, Moon, is placed in the 8th house in the sign of Libra and if Moon is Darakarka (DK) then the native could be involved in risky trades or gambling (such as sports betting) or could also do drug smuggling. If Sun is placed in the sign of Libra in the 8th house, then also the native could trade in stocks (or sports betting) as Sun is also a planet of speculation. Venus in Libra in 8th house is good for currency trading. Saturn in Libra in the 8th house is good for commodity trading but all these will be of speculative nature (involving risks as 8th house is a risk). Where there is turbulence there is risk. Jupiter in the 8th house in the sign of Libra is good for stock advisor.
2) The 8th house is also a hidden and secretive house and Libra is a sign of relationships and so this could also mean hidden or secret relationships such as extra marital affairs. Relationships that are outside marriage has to be secret only. If Venus is afflicted in the 8th house, then extra marital affairs are also possible for a Pisces ascendant native. I don’t teach afflictions in free articles here. You can join my paid tutorials by clicking on the > contact me < link above for paid tutorials and consultations. Just having Venus in the 8th house doesn’t mean there will be an extra marital affair.
3) Ashlesha Nakshatra is quite associated with drugs or poison or Nagas (snakes) and Moon is the sign ruler of Ashlesha Nakshatra and so if Mars (or Jupiter), default ruler of 8th house, is placed in the sign of Cancer (in Ashlesha Nakshatra) in the 5th house and if the 5th lord Moon is placed in the 8th house in the sign of Libra, then the sign of Libra falling on the 8th house could also mean drug smuggling (doing trade of drugs) or working with drugs & medicines and even poison.
If Saturn is placed in the sign of Cancer in Ashlesha Nakshatra in the 5th house, then with this placement it could produce snake charmers. Saturn is also a very dark and secretive planet. If Sun is light then Saturn is darkness. So, Saturn is also quite associated with the dark world or the 8th house. Pisces ascendant natives are very much prone to taking drugs if Mars is placed in Ashlesha Nakshatra in the 5th house and Moon is in Scorpio in the 9th house. People who are secluded from the normal world are generally seen as Pisces Ascendants as Pisces is also a hidden and virtual sign. Prostitutes and drug Mafia people are good examples of that. Prostitutes make a lot of hidden relationships and this is also what it means when the sign of Libra falls on the 8th house of secrets & hiding.
4) When the sign of Libra falls on the 8th house it could also mean taking bribe as bribe is also a hidden deal and Libra is a sign of deals and 8th house is a hidden and secretive house. When Mars is in Cancer you may lose morals and then you may take the bribe. If a native is Pisces ascendant, he/she will certainly make a lot of secret dealings or relationships in life. Politicians involved in secret treaties could also be Pisces ascendants. Learn here > https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secret_treaty about secret treaties.
5) Mars in Libra in the 8th house could get the Pisces ascendant natives into a terrible fight with someone as 8th house is a terrible house and Libra is a sign of one-to-one interaction and Mars is a very aggressive planet and it has a soldier mentality and soldiers are meant for fighting. Boxers are quite often seen from this placement as they are always involved in terrible fights with the opponent in sports events. Police officers and soldiers may also have this placement as they also often get into fights with the enemies.
Mars in Libra is never good for relationships as it will make the native bully in relationships and that could also result in divorce but this is not always so. If Libra is afflicted then Mars in Libra could also give problem in uterus and that could create problem in fertility. If you want to learn about afflictions then you can join my paid tutorials as mentioned on the contact me page above. Mars in Libra, however, is also good for engineering and IT profession.
6) When the sign of Libra falls on the 8th house it could also mean secret diplomacy as Libra is a sign of diplomacy and 8th house is the house of secrets. Secret diplomacy means diplomacy carried on by kings, presidents and other rulers, without the knowledge or consent of the people and behind the closed doors.
7) When the sign of Libra falls on the 8th house it could also mean trade war as 8th house is also war and Libra is a sign of trade. A trade war happens when one country or party retaliates against another by raising import tariffs or placing other restrictions on their imports or exports.
8) If Moon is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 9th house and if the 9th lord Mars is placed in the 8th house in the sign of Libra, then it may give psychic problems related to relationships or marriage (toxic relationships) and it could also give relationships addiction and then you can’t just stop in making relationships which is not legitimate. Moon in Scorpio can give addictions and psychic problems as Scorpio is quite a psychic sign. You may also give relationships readings as an astrologer or an occult science specialist with this same placement as Scorpio is also a sign that represents the occult science and paranormal.
9) If Sun is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 9th house and then if the 9th lord Mars is placed in the 8th house, then this person could even die in a bomb blast or due to fire as Sun in Scorpio is like a burning fire and also it represents a bomb blast or nuclear blast. Any kind of blast is seen from Sun in Scorpio as in a blast lot of fire is involved and Sun represents the fire. But this is more so possible if Sun and Mars are afflicted in the chart. When a dead body is burned on the cremation ground that is also like > Sun in Scorpio as Sun represents the fire and Scorpio is a sign of blast or death as it is a turbulent sign. So, people who burn the dead bodies or work with the burning fire in some melting industry may also have this placement. People involved in welding work may also have this placement. In a war also there are a lot of blasts through fire weapons.
10) The sign of Libra is also associated with Swadisthana chakra and if malefic planets like Mars, Sun, Ketu, and Saturn are placed in the 8th house in the sign of Libra and if these are afflicted then diseases of prostate, gallbladder, anus, uterus, genitals, hernia, pancreas, renal, kidney, etc are also possible all these body organs are controlled by Swadisthana chakra.
11) Libra is also a sign of interaction or collision and in the subject of physics we do study the concept of collision. A collision is any event in which two or more bodies exert forces on each other in a relatively short time. In collision some of the kinetic energy is always converted into heat energy and nuclear explosions or bomb explosions or nuclear reactions are also the result of collisions of particles like atoms, molecules, ions, electrons, protons, etc and so subjects like nuclear physics and nuclear chemistry can also be seen when the sign of Libra falls on the 8th house for a Pisces ascendant. If Jupiter is either placed in the 8th house or giving aspect to the 8th house then the native could certainly study these subjects as 8th house is a turbulent house and in nuclear reactions also there is a lot of turbulence and collisions (interaction).
12) If Mars is transiting through the sign of Libra and if Venus (sign ruler of Libra) is transiting through the sign of Scorpio then you can expect some blast to happen somewhere in the world and it could be due to war or a nuclear blast or a terrorist attack.
13) In rocket propulsion also a lot of fuel is burned and fuel is burned through chemical reactions and a lot of collisions take place during chemical reaction and so aerospace engineering could also be seen when the sign of Libra falls on the 8th house. Planets like Sun, Jupiter, and Mercury in the 8th house could also give the career of aerospace engineering.
14) In sports like football and hockey the players interact with each other a lot and there is a lot of turbulence (ups and downs – 8th house) in such interaction and so if a planet like Mars is placed in the sign of Libra in the 8th house people like football players and hockey players can also be seen especially if the 8th lord Venus is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 12th house as Aquarius represents a team.
15) If you are running Venus Mahadasha and Mars anterdasa and if your Mars is placed in the sign of Libra in the 8th house then you could also enjoy bull fighting or even sports where is a one-to-one interaction such as Taekwondo, Wrestling, Silat, Muay Thai, Martial Arts, Kungfu, Kickboxing, Boxing, Karate, Judo, etc. If Mars Mahadasha is running then could even be one of the participants of such sports.
16) The 8th house is a very dreadful (bhayanak) house and it holds all the dark secrets. All underground things & places could also be seen by the 8th house or the sign of Scorpio as underground world is a dark world which is unknown and hidden. Caves are good examples of that and you could also find all kinds of dreadful animals like snakes in old caves and dry wells. Snake is uncontrollable and dangerous and 8th house is also the house of dangers. But snake charmers (sapera) often control such snakes and make use of them to make money through snake charming profession. You can know more about snake charming profession from Google search.
Libra is a sign of controlling and when this sign falls on the 8th house then the Pisces ascendant native could be involved in controlling such dreadful animals such as snakes, tigers, monkeys, crocodiles, etc. If the 9th lord Mars is placed in the 8th house, then such people may even play with the dreadful animals by capturing them such as the people working in the Zoo as in Zoo you can find all such dreadful animals. The 9th house is the house of exploration and Scorpio is a very dreadful and risky sign and when the sign of Scorpio falls in the 9th house it means exploring something that is risky or dreadful or terrible such as exploring the jungle to capture dreadful animals like snakes.
When the sign of Aries falls on the 8th house you could be aggressive with dreadful animals like snakes and you may even kill them as Aries is an aggressive sign but when the sign of Libra falls on the 8th house you try to bring peace and harmony in that snake and try to control it for your benefits such as > making money out of such dreadful animals. Libra is a sign of peace and harmony and it is a sign of bringing something to normal from abnormal or turbulence by controlling.
Pisces is also a sign that represents the subtle world where all the ghosts and dead spirits exist and so the Pisces ascendant natives often control dead spirits and ghosts (through tantras and mantras) and these are all things of the 8th house as 8th house is also the house of paranormal.
