Which Harry Potter Character Are You, According To Your Zodiac Sign?

Updated June 14, 2019 334.5k views12 items

J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World is a fascinating place full of characters we love and loathe, and it begs the question: which Harry Potter character are you? Every character has their own backstory, personality, and style, but if you went to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, who would you be?

Perhaps you would be Harry Potter himself, the wise (and sometimes whiny) hero, or maybe a professor like the lovely but sassy Minerva McGonagall. Is there a chance you could be a Death Eater and serve He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named? It all depends on your personality. 

Thankfully, astrology has already done the hard work, so you don't need to sign up for Professor Trelawney's Divination class to find the Harry Potter character for each sign. By examining how the movements of the constellations impact events here on Earth, star charts can help determine which Harry Potter character you are according to your sign, or even which Hogwarts House fits you best. Have a look below at the wizarding world characters by zodiac sign, and don't forget to check your tea leaves.

  • Leo (July 23-August 22): Harry Potter

    Leo is a natural-born leader with a bold streak. This Fire sign can be generous and protective on their best days, but coldhearted or jealous on their worst. The ego can both help the Lion and at the same time hurt those around them, who may feel underappreciated or worse, subservient. 

    "The Boy Who Lived" is a pretty hardcore nickname, and it feeds Harry's Leo flame. Harry can get a little egotistical and forget that he would accomplish nothing without his dream team (cough Hermione cough cough), but the truth is he's still the leader who has to get the job done. He makes mistakes, but a Leo can take it; after all, the Lion is king.

  • Virgo (August 23-September 22): Hermione Granger

    Virgo is marked by resourcefulness, a knack for organization, and a strong work ethic. Without a doubt, this Earth sign stays grounded in practicality. Though they may get caught analyzing or overthinking, count on Virgos to find the smartest way through obstacles previously not considered.

    Hermione exudes Virgo ethos and style. She puts in the hard work, and her dedication pays off again and again. She's likely the only person to have ever read Hogwarts: A History cover to cover besides Bathilda Bagshot herself. Who would have thought such a boring text could come in handy during the Death Eater uprising? A Virgo, that's who.

  • Libra (September 23-October 22): Professor Minerva McGonagall

    Libra seeks balance, fairness, and equality in everything, but most especially in relationships. The sign of the Scales needs commitment from their partners and collaborators, which they kindly return. Surrounded by a grace and style that is difficult to define, they can also be a little vain.

    Professor McGonagall may be strict, but her Libra essence keeps her fair. Of course she doles out punishments and extra assignments, but only to those those who deserve it. She respects and tries to show kindness to everyone, but she's not afraid to whip out her wand AKA her justice stick and show Snape (or anyone) who's boss.

  • Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Bellatrix Lestrange

    Scorpio prefers a little secrecy and a lot of power. They thrive with intensity and intimacy. Loyalty matters to the Scorpion, and though they crave control, they will relinquish their grip once their trust is earned.

    Bellatrix Lestrange is so Scorpio it hurts - quite literally. There's a secret cult with branded tattoos that burn your wrist when it's time to chill? Sign her up! No one can say Bellatrix lacks loyalty, passion, or intensity. She manifests some of the darker sides of this mysterious sign, but sometimes Scorpios just gotta Scorpio.
