Zodiac Signs of Harry Potter Characters
Harry Potter: Leo (July 31, 1980)
Harry Potter is a Leo zodiac sign. Of course, Harry’s birthday isn’t the only reason he’s a Leo. As a Leo, he is loyal, protective, and always ready to fight for what’s right, which also makes him the perfect Gryffindor. It’s no surprise that the Gryffindor symbol is a lion – bold and fearless! He also has many other qualities that make him the perfect Lion: He’s brave, confident, and always up for a challenge. He’s also fiercely loyal to his friends and family, and always ready to defend them from evil. Leos are natural leaders and Harry Potter is no different. He led the Gryffindor quidditch team, Dumbledore’s Army, and even the Battle of Hogwarts. He’s always been a natural leader, and people are drawn to his strength and courage.

She always wants things to be just right, and she’s often disappointed when they’re not.

Albus Dumbledore embodies his Virgo zodiac sign. For starters, he is smart, detail-oriented, a martyr, and a perfectionist, all key personality traits of this zodiac sign, Just like a typical Virgo, Albus Dumbledore loves doing things alone, partly because they like doing it his own way, and partly because he’s too protective to ask. Albus Dumbledore is the wisest, most independent, and most thoughtful of all the Virgos out there, and that’s saying something! Meticulous and reliable, he is constantly striving to defeat Voldemort and working behind the scenes to track down the horcruxes.

Luna is also very compassionate and she understands Harry on a deeper level than other people. She is always there for her friends when they need her. All of these qualities make Luna Lovegood the perfect Aquarius.

He was determined to become a professor at Hogwarts and worked tirelessly to achieve his goal. Snape is also very loyal and protective of the people he cares about, which is typical of Capricorns. He risked his own life to protect Harry Potter and the students of Hogwarts. However, he can also be inflexible and unyielding, which often leads to conflict.

All of these qualities make Sirius Black a perfect Scorpio.
Draco Malfoy: Gemini (June 5, 1980)
Draco Malfoy is an unhealthy Gemini. Malfoy is known for being arrogant, selfish, and manipulative. He is also two-faced and he is often not to be trusted. Malfoy is the kind of person who says one thing and does another. He is also highly intelligent and he is able to think on his feet. Malfoy is a master at deception and he is always looking for ways to get ahead. He is also very ambitious and he will stop at nothing to achieve his goals. Another unhealthy Gemini trait is their tendency to be jealous and envious of others. Malfoy is always trying to one-up Harry and he is always looking for ways to make Harry’s life more difficult. All of these qualities are unhealthy traits of the Gemini zodiac sign.

Remus Lupin is a Pisces. Pisces are known for being intuitive and for thinking outside of the box, which is Remus Lupin to a tee. He was an amazing professor who was always able to come up with new and interesting ways to teach his students. The Boggart lesson is a perfect example of this. Remus also uses his intuition to sense the feelings of others. This is why he was always quick to comfort Harry Potter when he was feeling down. The dark side of Pisces includes melancholy and martyrdom. Remus Lupin definitely has a melancholic side. This is likely due to the fact that he is a werewolf. He has to deal with a lot of pain and suffering because of his condition.

However, Dobby saw the bigger picture and he was happy to have saved Harry’s life even if it cost him his own.
Lord Voldemort: Capricorn (December 31, 1926)
Lord Voldemort is an unhealthy Capricorn. It’s no surprise that the Dark Lord portrays all the toxic traits of a Capricorn, as this zodiac sign is known for its ambition, determination, and power-hungry nature. Capricorns are also known for their cold, calculating demeanor, which is perfectly suited for a villain like Voldemort. He is always planning ahead and is very intelligent, two other qualities that are often associated with Capricorns. However, Voldemort takes these qualities to the extreme. He is obsessed with power and will do anything to achieve his goals of killing Harry Potter and creating a Wizarding World with only purebloods. He is also very manipulative and he continually uses people for his own gain. These are all qualities that make Lord Voldemort a very unhealthy Capricorn.

She is asserts her authority on the students from the moment she arrives at Hogwarts. Virgos hold themselves and others to exceptionally high standards and Professor Umbridge is no different. She is always quick to judge and find fault in others. She is also very good at following rules and regulations and also making them. All of these qualities combined with unhealthy beliefs make Professor Umbridge a very unhealthy Virgo.

In fact, they often seek out adventure and love to take risks.

Because of this, and his cautious Capricorn personality, Mad-Eye prepared his own meals and drank from his own flask.
Arthur Weasley: Aquarius (February 6, 1950)
Arthur Weasley is an Aquarius. He has a keen interest and fascination in the muggle world, which to a wizard, is like new technology! Arthur Weasley even asked Harry what the function of a rubber duck is. He is also a bit of an eccentric, which is often seen in Aquarius characters, and he doesn’t care about what other people think of him. Aquarians often champion causes they believe in and fight for what they think is right. Arthur definitely falls into this category. He is a member of the Order of the Phoenix who fights against Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters and he continually risks his life for the greater good.
