Leo and Pisces can sometimes be a difficult match to make work, though it has a lot of potential. The low scores represent the initial compatibility of this match. However, if you can both adapt to the others style this is a relationship which will improve steadily over time, and eventually rival any other match. The low scores then represent a high initial challenge, and not a long term pessimistic view.
These scores show the averages for data collected from my clients over the past 20 years. It's important to note however that individual relationships vary enormously. This is a summarized picture, a real compatibility reading is needed to judge a real relationship. It's also worth noting that Soulmates can be found in any sun sign match, even those which are statistically likely to have low compatibility.
This article is in two halves, the first is written from the viewpoint of the Leo man or Leo woman, and the second is written from the viewpoint of the Pisces man or Pisces woman.
The outcome of this relationship is far more dependant on you than on your partner, and this makes this match fairly unique (nearly always it's 50/50). I'll cover this in detail first before getting to the less critical areas.
You're very likely to be in control of this relationship, and your Pisces will certainly appear to be okay with that. In fact, in many life areas they'll be more than happy with it.
This is a partner who hates conflict or friction, and will rarely feel that something is worth arguing over. Given a choice they will usually 'go with the flow', and often prefer a 'take charge' partner to deal with the incidentals of life.
You're the total opposite, and often prefer to take a stand and actively fight for what you feel is right or needed. This match therefore usually works very well for both of you. The danger is that you'll steamroll your partners ideas and feelings, just because it's so easy for you to do.
Pisces is often a subtle sign. They don't stand up and yell that they want xyz. They ask nicely, and they wait patiently, often not pursuing it if ignored or rejected. To a large degree the entire success of this relationship hinges on you training yourself to acknowledge those times when your partner wants a say, and listening to them - and backing down gracefully to their wishes occasionally.
You're the king of this jungle, and with that position comes responsibility - to care for and look after your subjects. This isn't a partner who you need to be selfish with. They'll give you endless love, devotion, respect and admiration - and doubly so if they see you're sensitive and fair.
You may sometimes see your partner as indecisive, vague and subservient (traits which if you're honest you probably quite like in a partner!) however the reason for this is that Pisces are dreamers, and often view the world as a temporary illusion (and philosophically they're right). They rarely feel the need to argue over the 'here and now' and often they want to consider their emotions before making a decision. They also enjoy putting others before themselves.
The above will manifest in nearly all aspects of your Leo Pisces relationship. For example you place far higher value on material things, whereas this partner doesn't seem to need them. A simple love note will do more for them than an expensive gift with no thought behind it. So don't try to impress them in the wrong direction. If they treasure something it's for the thought and the giver, not the gift.
As another example, they can be incredibly selfless and giving, and will often go out of their way to help someone, whether it's a friend or stranger. Ditto, they're emotionally impressionable - an emotional sponge, always taking on the moods of those nearby.
You're a warm hearted and generous person, and can be very domineering and protective. All this works perfectly with this partner. Other aspects of your personality however don't work as well. Your ferocious temper will totally turn off and scare your Pisces. This isn't a partner you need to fight with, so try to keep that temper away from them.
Moving on to more general areas of a Leo Pisces relationship: You both really enjoy being in love and both can be highly romantic. Your desire for the dramatic can compliment your partner's idealistic approach to life. Both of you are often highly creative.
You're extroverted, while your Pisces is likely to be fairly introverted and need space and time to recharge in order to keep up with your need for social activities. You may feel your partner is too sensitive, humble, sentimental or emotional. Overall they may strike you as 'vulnerable'. Meanwhile they may see you as pushy, arrogant and domineering.
Money may be an issue in a Leo Pisces match, as you like to spend and your partner has little interest in financial matters. You're unlikely to be criticized for any extravagant spending, but by the same token you won't be grounded or encouraged to save.
It's important to note however that we're looking only at sun signs here. There are many other planets which can have an equal or greater effect on someone's personality. Makes sense, as ultimately everyone is of course unique. Generalizing too far based just on sun signs can therefore be misleading.
To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results.
This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information: everything from how they view you, how to turn them on, how to avoid arguments with them etc. If you would like to explore this further please see the compatibility readings page.
What makes this relationship fairly unique, is that the outcome is far more dependant on your Leo's treatment of it than on yours (usually it's nearly always 50/50).
One of things you'll probably admire about your Leo is their strength of character, self confidence and desire to always organize and be in charge. Along these lines your Leo is almost guaranteed to want control over most aspects of the relationship, and in many ways that suits you just fine, as you can then concentrate on the bigger picture of life.
The danger is that your Leo will come to ignore your thoughts or feelings. This isn't a partner who will back down from a fight easily, or who is easily persuaded (and certainly not if it involves criticism). You'll soon learn that avoiding arguments is a high priority, and this leads to the danger of this being a very one sided relationship. This may or may not work for you.
Moving on to more general areas of a Pisces Leo relationship: you both can be highly romantic, and your partner's desire for the dramatic can compliment your idealistic approach to life very well. You both enjoy being in love, and both can be highly creative.
You tend towards being introverted, while your Leo is most definitely extroverted. You'll need space and time to recharge in order to keep up with your partners need for social activities. Given that recharge time however, you'll probably enjoy this aspect of the relationship.
You'll likely see this partner as occasionally pushy, arrogant and domineering. Meanwhile they may feel you're too sensitive, humble, sentimental or emotional. Neither approach is right or wrong, you just have very different agendas and views of life. You can learn a lot from each other in this respect.
Money may be an issue in this relationship. Your partner is likely to have expensive tastes and you're likely to not care about money enough to want to change this. There wont be much conflict, but there also may not be much saving going on.
A good match, you both bring out the romantic in each other, and your partners larger than life attitude works well with your imagination and love of fantasy. This can make for a very satisfying and sustainable long term match.
Overall this can be a very good match, as long as your Leo is prepared to give and take.
