Astrology Signs in Slytherin House:

Scorpio: Slytherin

Perhaps the quintessential Slytherin, a Scorpio is unafraid to look into the darkness in life to understand what fears motivate people and how to overcome them. As a Water sign, Scorpio is very intuitive and shares the Water element associated with Slytherin. Scorpios, like Slytherins, are masters in the art of manipulation, a trait that can be used simultaneously for good and evil. Scorpios are the rare people that confront the dark, heavy subjects in life and work in places others would be too stressed to handle. Scorpionic ambition is similar to Slytherin ambition in that both can become extremely passionate in an all-or-nothing sense. Huge success or bust for Scorpios and Slytherins!

Harry Potter’s tall, dark, and mysterious godfather, Sirius Black, is a Scorpio (born Nov. 3) who belonged to Gryffindor despite his family’s long-standing history of being in Slytherin. This goes to show the raw power of Scorpio – they cannot be swayed by what others think and will do whatever it takes to reach their own goals.

Gemini: Slytherin

Gemini, the sign of the Twins, is known for their intelligence, adaptability, and their dual tendencies, things valued by most Slytherins. There is nothing inherently bad about Slytherins or Geminis (despite the bad rap both have gotten); both are just willing to look at both sides of the coin and examine all the shades of gray in a situation. Geminis and Slytherins are cunning and able to get things done with few resources – if they’re focused in on something, they find a way to make it happen at any cost. The phrase “too smart for their own good” applies to Geminis and Slytherins alike. Just remember, Slytherin isn’t only the house of dark wizards – after all, Merlin was a Slytherin.

Draco Malfoy, Harry Potter’s Hogwarts rival, is a Gemini Slytherin (born June 5). Like Harry, Draco is torn between light and dark magic throughout the Harry Potter series, and the consequences of his abilities and his decisions demonstrate just how powerful Geminis and Slytherins are.

Sagittarius: Slytherin

Sagittarius is the flighty adventurer of the astrology signs. Direct, spontaneous, and prone to taking risks, most Sagittarians would find Slytherin to be the right house for them. The philosophical Saggitarian mind is very similar to the complexities and layers of Slytherin, and Sagittarius’ interest in looking at things from new perspectives allows them to tackle any problem with a 360-degree approach. Saggitarian confidence is well-received in Slytherin house, and their leadership drives their ambition to great heights. Plus, as the sign of the Archer is ruled by lucky planet Jupiter, Slytherin might be the house that gives Sagittarius the upper-hand they need to find the wild success they crave.

Hogwarts groundskeeper and former professor Rubeus Hagrid (born Dec. 6). Impulsive and passionate, Hagrid (although a former Gryffindor) takes many risks throughout the books to aid in efforts against Voldemort. It is often his cunning that allows him to work around the rules without consequence, a trait any Slytherin would value.
