Leo and Pisces Compatibility: Love, Friendship, Work
All relationships succeed or fail for a variety of reasons, some of which we may never be able to fully grasp. Much of it is circumstance and our personal histories or individual character will have a lot to do with it. While not everyone whose birth falls on the same date will be the same, we sometimes look to star signs for help in understanding how we are in relationships. Leos and Pisces are considered to have particular traits which at first seem incompatible, but might actually be very complimentary. oneHOWTO looks at how these signs of the Zodiac to see how Leo and Pisces are compatible in love, friendship and work.
Leo and Pisces in love
Leo and Pisces are thought to be two very different signs, but this doesn't make them incompatible. As Paula Abdul once famously sang, 'opposites attract'. One's shortcomings might be counteracted by the other so the relationship can be harmonious. As with any relationship, Aries and Pisces are compatible as long as they respect and complement each other.
Leo are considered to be like their namesake, the lion. They are strong and proud, but also fierce and stubborn when cornered. If someone is too proud, then they can find it difficult to make mistakes. At the same time, pride can lead to success and can be an attractive quality in many. Stubbornness in a relationship is also a double edged sword. If someone is a Leo and they are stubborn, then they might not be able to compromise during a relationship. Compromise is very important in any relationship as there is always some give and take.
If Leos are prideful, this can also mean they are domineering. Being domineering and controlling in a couple can be exciting at the start. It can make someone in a relationship that person seem like they are being looked after. However, if someone goes against their will, a proud Leo might also make it difficult for that person. They may feel they are being slighted or disparaged.
Pisces are also like their namesakes; wet and scaly. Only joking! Many Pisces are thought to be on the other end of this spectrum, i.e. submissive and sensitive. However, even if this is accurate, it's not that being sensitive is bad for being in a relationship. Being oversensitive might be, however. If these traits are accurate to how you feel about yourself as a Leo or Pisces, then you might feel like you are being a pushover or you are being domineering. While these traits might make couples fit together well to begin with, it can also cause problems down the line.
People change and develop throughout a relationship. What might seem like being assertive and sexy in a Leo, can lead to being bullying and arrogant. Equally, if Pisces are at first sensitive and sweet, it can eventually seem boring and weak.
In terms of a sexual relationship the two signs can complement one another. Just as some people who are interested in BDSM are yin and yang to each other, Leo and Pisces signs can have very erotic and sensual relationships. Leo is a fire sign which represents passion; frenzied and explosive. Pisces, a water sign, has a preference for a calmer encounter but one that is equally exciting. In addition, Pisces can love feeling desired by Leo, something that will raise their self-esteem and allow Pisces to be carried away by the most hidden instincts.
However, Leo must be a little careful when having sex because some of the supposed favoured eccentricities might be frowned upon by Pisces. A control of impulses and a deep understanding of the other's nature is vital to make this experience a success.
Leo and Pisces in friendship
To find the compatibility between Leo and Pisces in a friendship you should know that, as they have such disparate personalities, the two will have to be patient and accept the differences between them. However, Pisces admires Leo for the signs vitality, self confidence and independence, an admiration which will be very well received by Leo as a dominant sign.
In this sense there will not be conflicts as Leo is dominant and Pisces tends to let itself be dominated, something ideal to achieve an understanding between them. People who are born under the sign of Leo tend to relate to "weaker" signs i.e. they need other people more because they have a caring and protective instinct towards their loved ones. It is a way to search for their match, their other half, in the field of friendship and find a relationship that will last forever.
Leo and Pisces at work
At work the relationship between Leo and Pisces can be a little more tricky as the dominant tendency of Leo can lead to clashes with Pisces who may feel intimidated and unhappy with a personality that is so strong and energetic. In addition, Leo is a sign that is hard to tame and does not tend to obey orders and, even less, to serve others; they are people with spirit of leadership that can struggle with arguments or orders imposed by orders.
Pisces on the other hand is an undecided sign that will struggle to take decisions and need time to think about what he or she believes is really correct. Therefore, if working on the same team Leo may start to feel under pressure and so a clash or a misunderstanding will likely take place. For this reason, if you work with this sign, you will have to be patient and understand its nature, only then will you find a fruitful relationship.
