Leo: July 23 – August 22

In the traditions of horoscopic astrology, Leo is born under the “Fifth House” of the zodiac. A “house” is a specific term used to describe the special attributes contained inside its walls and then passed on to a person in human form.

Leo is ruled exclusively from our sun, located nearly 93 million miles from where you are right now. It is from this celestial body where the sign gets its unique traits.

Pulsating from the sun’s hydrogen-helium core, the symbolic lion is released into the solar system, traveling at the speed of light.

Just before arriving on earth, the Milky Way galaxy electrifies the lion with gifts of magnetism and charm.

Major Leo traits include (positive and negative):

  • Gentle and warm
  • Sometimes self-focused
  • Passionate
  • Cheerful
  • Independent
  • Can be inflexible
  • Highly creative
  • Inflexible
  • Very charming
  • Resourceful
  • Prideful
  • Dominant

Pisces Traits

Pisces is gifted with deep empathic abilities

Pisces: February 20 – March 20

Persons born under the Pisces sign reside under the “Twelfth House” in astrology. If you were to walk up to this home and open the door, you would immediately sense the energy of mysticism, secrets, and dreams.

Pisces has two ruling planets: Jupiter and Neptune respectively. Nearly two million miles apart, their energy fields intersect and cause a cosmic ripple.

The elements for fire and water in astrology

Fire Signs and Water Signs

Leo is considered a fire sign. This means they are passionate and hold a zest for life. They are also creative, spontaneous, and courageous. In many ways, their personalities are magnetic.

Pisces is a water sign. Persons born under this elemental representation are thought to be emotionally deep, intellectual, and extremely empathic [psychic].

Fixed Signs and Mutable Signs

Ancient lore teaches us that Leo is a fixed sign. This means it strives for stability and structure and prefers routine. Fixed signs aren’t always the best with change.

Mutable Signs

The mystics tell us that mutable signs are good with adaptation. They help others to prepare for change. Because they are the elders of the universe, they are considered extremely wise.

At this point, I encourage you to take a few minutes to reflect on the material above. When you are finished, let’s examine the seven unique ways Pisces and Leo are compatible.

1. Leo and Pisces Sexual Energy  

The physical attraction between Leo and Pisces is powerful and palatable. Urban legend suggests the two don’t match in this area but the myth is completely untrue.

Leo’s sexual vibe is unmistakable. When it wants to mate, it becomes extremely dominate and hunts for prey with pinpoint accuracy.

For many signs, this form of energy can be overpowering. But this is not the case for Pisces; a sign that is more than capable of absorbing the lion’s intensity.

Almost always submissive, the fish is equipped with a unique “chip” that allows it to tap into the lion’s energy. As a result, this equalizes the cat’s vibration.

The magnetic forces that draw the two together can be found in Leo’s assertive presence. Pisces, who is attracted to the strong and confident type, becomes instantly aroused.

Initiating mating is primal for the lion and intuitive for the fish. Verbal communication is not needed in the bedroom. Both have the uncanny ability to tune into one another on a different plane of existence.

Pisces holds one advantage; it can see past Leo’s bravado and penetrate through its confidence, focusing its awareness around the lion’s arousal zones.

This leaves the lion mesmerized, something that paradoxically causes Leo to come begging for more.

The moon and Pisces

An important consideration in this pairing is the impact of the moon on Pisces; a celestial body that affects all water signs. If you believe our moon sways the ocean’s currents, it is easy to see the relationship.

During the full moon, Pisces undergoes a surge of kinetic energy that has a transformative effect on dominant Leo. Curious as to how?

Specifically, Piscean energy can pierce the lion’s strong veneer and make Leo submissive. In this way, the cat becomes submissive.

2. Love Between The Fish and Lion

The emotional bond between Leo and Pisces intense. By nature, the lion is cautious and careful. But once it connects with the fish, the emotional bond is unshakable.

When you reflect on this pairing, it makes sense.

It takes a patient, caring, and nurturing sign like Pisces to flip Leo’s heart switch. Once accomplished, the duo vibrates at nearly the same frequency.

Remember, Pisces is a mutable sign, meaning that it can adapt to Leo’s love intensity. The lion is fiercely protective, something Pisces is drawn to like a moth to a flame.

Pisces calms Leo’s passions. Conversely, Leo ignites the fish’s heart flame.

3. Trust With Pisces and Leo

Much information exists on the topic of trust between Leo and Pisces. It has been said that Neptune, a Piscean ruling planet, makes trust impossible between the fish and lion.

But naysayers forget that Jupiter also rules Pisces; perhaps the strongest force of trust in our solar system.

While it is true that it takes time for the lion to feel secure with the fish, it doesn’t mean the signs don’t gel. In fact, just the opposite is true.

But before the bond can solidify, both Leo and Pisces must put one another through a series of tests. Leo, a natural born flirter, will often check out others to elicit an emotional response from the fish.

There are times when this behavior can go too far.

On the flipside, Pisces will attempt to withhold emotions as a way of angering the cat.

It is during this time, usually within the first year of the relationship, where the greatest danger of romantic collapse exists.

Once Leo and Pisces move past this period of testing, the two reaching an understanding that is powerfully strong. As time goes on, the bond becomes unshakable.

Word of warning: Leo is fiercely independent. Pisces can often be clingy. Both need to be mindful of these traits during the bonding period.

4. Money Matters

If there is one area where the two struggle, it’s personal finances. There’s no easy way to say this except to just blurt it out.

Pisces is one of the worst signs in the zodiac when it comes to money management.

This is not a slight against the fish. The hard truth is Pisces isn’t concerned with the accumulation of material things or creating wealth. Instead, the sign operates on a different plane of existence, driven by emotion.

Leo, on the other hand, is just the opposite. The sign likes having financial security (a trait of all fixed signs) and prefers to accumulate wealth.

But it is their differences that draw this pairing together.

To be real about it, the lion won’t put up with the fish’s crazy spending. When it sees this happening, Leo will roar with intensity, putting an end to Pisces wasteful spending.

At first glance, you may think this would irritate the fish but that’s not the case. Pisces needs boundaries and likes it when a dominant force takes control.

This is not to say there isn’t initial friction. There most certainly can be. But this uncomfortableness usually fades once the duo reaches a place of understanding.

5. Intellect For Pisces and Leo

It is said that fire signs and water signs often struggle intellectually. While this may be true for some pairings, it is not the case here.

By nature, Leo is a warm and passionate sign. It thinks deeply about different topics with thoughts that revolve around survival and the practical.

Pisces is also a deep thinker however, it tends to dream about possibilities. At times, the fish bifurcates between a world of fantasy and reality.

In this way, both Pisces and Leo paradoxically match. It is there intellectual differences that challenge one another. Both are smart – just in different ways.

6. Communications Between Leo and Pisces 

Initially, there can be a struggle with communication with this pairing. This makes perfect sense when one considers their elemental representations.

Remember, one is a water sign (empathic) and the other a fire sign (verbal).

Figuring out styles of communication takes time. Because Leo can be direct, it can sometimes speak truths about Pisces in blunt, hurtful ways.

Conversely, Pisces has a way of reading the lion’s hidden vulnerabilities. When verbalized, this can deeply wound Leo.

It takes patience and time for both zodiacs to feel one another’s groove. Leo must learn to govern its passions and filter comments directed toward fish. Conversely, Pisces must soften its tone when exposing the feline’s faults.

The good news is that arguments don’t happen frequently. By nature, Pisces is a passive sign and avoids confrontation. Leo, however, likes a good fight.

If both signs can arrive at an understanding of styles of communication, conversation usually isn’t a problem. The key thing to remember is the process takes time.

7. What Interests Do Pisces and Leo Share?

Some believe Leo and Pisces don’t share common interests. In truth, they do – many.

Leo enjoys entertainment-focused activities, like television, movies, and theater. Pisces also likes these things, provided they stimulate the imagination.

Leo is competitive in nature and gravitates towards sporting activities. While Pisces can enjoy these things, it’s not exactly its wheelhouse.

But that is okay because the fish gets excited when the lion becomes passionate. In this way, there truly exists symbiosis.

Pisces is a natural born animal lover. In fact, creatures gravitate towards this sign in an uncanny way. Ancient lore suggests that animals can speak to Pisces – literally.

Leo also loves animals but does not have the same wiring as the fish. This is only being mentioned should the duo decide to adopt a dog or cat.

The pet will always be closer to Pisces.

Additional areas of interest include the outdoors. Both enjoy things like camping with Leo gravitating towards the mountains and Pisces the sea.

Leo at times struggles with trying new things. Pisces, the dreamy and curious creature that it is, can nudge the lion towards the different.

Key Considerations for Pisces and Leo

When considering the Pisces and Leo pairing, the key thing to keep in mind is that the duo is (in the karmic sense) meant to be together.

Leo is a strong, vibrant, and extroverted personality. Pisces is more introverted and typically not one to grab the spotlight. That said, the duo uniquely compliments one another in uncanny ways.

Why Leo and Pisces Strongly Match

  • One provides what the other may be lacking
  • Sexual chemistry is extremely powerful
  • Leo is a protector. Pisces likes to be protected
  • Pisces can be moved out of its natural shell by Leo, allowing the fish to enjoy more things in life.
  • Leo benefits from Pisces intellectual and empathic gifts. In turn, this allows the lion to be dive deeper on heady and emotional topics
  • Passion between the two signs is powerful, primarily because of each sign’s elemental representations
  • Both signs naturally gravitate towards one another. In many ways, they are the proverbial “Like a moth to the flame” axiom

In the seven life areas we have covered, you’ve seen how their differences draw the two together. Simply put, what one sign is missing, the other compensates for.
