Every sign in the zodiac has its own strengths and weaknesses that can express themselves in different ways for everyone. Of course, every astrological sign has its positive aspects, but every sign also has the ability to turn dark under the wrong circumstances.
In the world of Harry Potter, there is every manner of villain who has their own goals, personalities, and quirks. These villains are as diverse as the signs of the zodiac. But which Harry Potter villain would you be, based on your zodiac sign?
12 Aries – Fenrir Greyback
When life gives an Aries lemons, they’ll find a way to make lemonade. Aries is one of the most assertive and oftentimes aggressive zodiac signs, and once they come up with an idea or plan, they’ll do it and enlist as many people as they can to help.
If they were a Harry Potter villain, they’d likely be someone like Fenrir Greyback. Most people would be devastated to become werewolves, but Fenrir takes great joy in turning others and ultimately hopes to create an army of werewolves to overwhelm wizardkind.
11 Taurus – Vernon Dursley
Tauruses are some of the most stubborn people in all of astrology, and it can be borderline impossible to change a Taurus mind once their mind has been made up. That’s why their dark Harry Potter version seems to pretty clearly be someone like Vernon Dursley.
He has very specific ideas about the wizarding world and he will do anything to avoid having his mind changed, and he truly embodies the classic motto of “my way or the highway”.
10 Gemini – Severus Snape
Severus Snape may have spent the latter half of his life doing everything in his power to defeat the evil that he once supported, but that doesn’t magically erase the fact that he was a Death Eater and true dark wizard before Lily Potter’s death, nor does it negate the fact that he terrorized Harry Potter and the rest of his students for years.
However, the duality of Snape’s personality seems to perfectly suit the dual nature of Gemini.
9 Cancer – Draco Malfoy
Among the villains of the wizarding world, Draco Malfoy is truly one of the least evil. He was a cruel bully and he thought he believed in everything his parents did, until he had to put his money where his mouth is and become a Death Eater.
The conflict between what he wanted to do and what he had to do tore Draco apart, and his empathy won out on some level, which is why the emotional and empathetic Cancer sign best represents him.
8 Leo – Bellatrix Lestrange
People born under the sign of the Leo only operate on two levels, either they’re completely apathetic about something or they’re utterly devoted to it.
Much like Bellatrix Lestrange, once a Leo decides they care about something, they will do anything to support it or achieve their own goals. Leos are also a very active and aggressive sign, they are never the type to wait and see what happens, so Bella seems like their perfect Potter counterpart.
7 Virgo – Narcissa Malfoy
Virgos are one of the quietest but strongest signs in astrology. They are never overly ostentatious or attention-seeking, but they are exceptionally pragmatic, and they will always achieve what they set out to do in the end.
Someone like Narcissa Malfoy seems to share a lot in common with this sign, as she seems to be singularly focused on the safety or advancement of her family, and she essentially managed to save her son and defeat the dark lord in one fell swoop.
6 Libra – Peter Pettigrew
As an air sign, Libras are more focused on the mental rather than the physical and emotional, and they can flit from idea to idea in an instant. They also are reluctant to take sides, as they can typically see the pros and cons from any point of view.
So then, it seems like they share a lot in common with Peter Pettigrew, the noncommittal Marauder who got many people killed because he couldn’t choose a side and stick to it.
5 Scorpio – Voldemort
Scorpios are one of the most intense zodiac signs, and while they prefer to remain mysterious, people are very naturally drawn to them anyway. What makes a Scorpio so similar to the Dark Lord is that they are very talented at hiding their true selves from others.
A Scorpio could very easily put on the charming veneer of Tom Riddle while evolving into Lord Voldemort in secret, and they would have a knack for finding other dark wizards to lead towards a revolution as well.
4 Sagittarius – Barty Crouch Jr.
Although he ultimately failed, Harry Potter fans often don’t give Barty Crouch Jr. enough credit for how masterfully he mimicked Professor Moody, or that he managed to befriend and charm Harry into a literal death trap.
Sagittarians can be a little wild and off-the-cuff, but their charm and bravery often gets them through sticky situations and wins them friends along the way, which is why they seem like a perfect analog for someone like the younger Crouch.
3 Capricorn – Dolores Umbridge
Capricorns are one of the steadiest and most diligent of all the signs. They are very traditional and can be quite rigid, but they are so determined and focused that they almost always get what they want in the end.
Someone like Dolores Umbridge is a pretty picture-perfect evil Capricorn, as her talent for following the rules and using them to her advantage allowed her to ascend to the upper echelons of the Ministry of Magic.
2 Aquarius – Gellert Grindelwald
Those born under the sign of Aquarius are independent thinkers who don’t want to go along with the crowd, and they can come up with some of the most unique ideas.
Gellert Grindelwald is a perfect evil Aquarius, because he is an enormously powerful wizard who doesn’t just want to lead the wizarding world, he wants to completely change it. Granted, he wants to change it for the worst, but only an Aquarian mind would ever even imagine that they could revolutionize the world.
1 Pisces – Quirinus Quirrell
People born under the sign of Pisces can be quite emotional and sensitive, which seems to connect well to Professor Quirrell’s true nature as a shy and impressionable man.
But of course, every sign can have a dark side, and the dark side of Pisces as well as Quirinus Quirrell can be that they are sometimes too easily influenced and prone to letting their dreams and fantasies get ahead of reality, to their own detriment.
