Hogwarts Houses in Astrology
May 9, 2019
The World of Harry Potter depicts four different houses in Hogwarts namely Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. We discovered that these houses can be described astrologically. This interestingly came about on our evening family walk while I was trying to teach my daughters about astrology. As I described a certain personality and how it would appear on a birth chart, my daughter Divya, a huge Harry Potter fan, said “That sounds like a Slytherin!” So, below is my analyzation of your Hogwarts house and astrology! There are multiple and multilevel influences on who you are as a person and your Hogwarts house. This can be ascertained in more detail by looking at the birthchart. This is just a brief introduction to your Hogwarts House.
Gryffindors are brave, courageous, adventurous, bold, loyal, and athletic.
If you are a Gryffindor, you might see a very prominent Mars in the first or tenth house. Mars is the general, the leader of the army. He is strong and ready to fight. The first house represents you as an individual and the 10th house is your work. So Mars, well placed in either of these houses, would give you these characteristics. A strong Sun, especially in the first house, indicates a strong physical body and good health. A strong Jupiter in the ninth house would give you courage, loyalty, and the ability to fight righteously. The third house, represents courage and determination. Gryffindors, this house will be powerful in your chart . The signs of Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius, which represent Mars, Sun, and Jupiter respectively. These signs may be on the ascendant, Sun, or the Moon of your chart. The ascendant represents your overall personality. The Sun represents your external body and behavior.

Hufflepuffs are hardworking, loyal, fair, kind, welcoming, and dedicated. Hufflepuffs, you will have a strong Saturn in the first, ninth, or tenth house. Saturn represents hard work.
