okay, so does anyone ever wonder why Hermione wasn't put into Ravenclaw or Slytherin? I mean, she's really effing smart. She can get into 'claw easily. I don't think, however, now that I think about it, that she would have made it into Slyth because of Salazar Slytherin's thing about purebloods.
And I guess she's brave or whatever - she stands up to Neville...but come to think of it, it really isn't a contest...
When I was in high school I was totally a band nerd (believe it or not). And I would be able to discern a lot about someone's personality depending on what they played. There's always the exception, like Bryan here in the OMB who plays flute but is in ROTC, or Lorene in HS who played percussion. But you can tell a lot about someone from their instrument.
And then I learned more about astrology and became really into that. I now have a few rules pertaining to astrology - I can't date geminis. They're just off limits to me. And I should beware of anyone with a fire sign.
And then I became obsessed with Harry Potter. And I'm in a lot of comms. My friends ruth blaze2242, tom up_on_the_roof, and I are all avid HP theorists and talk at length about houses (they would both do well in ravenclaw, whereas I "claim" slytherin), and the juxtaposition with astrology and hogwarts houses.
For example, I'm a capricorn with a lot of outer (and heavier, thus more influential) planets in fire signs (leo, sagitarius, and aries), and I'm most often placed in Gryffindor and Slytherin. I can see slytherin and therefor own up to it most because, like most cappies, I'm a go getter and will do anything to achieve my goals. I've become a snob over a few things, like facial products, coffee, and karate schools, and I own up to them. At the same time, with about half of my planets in fire signs, I'm what one would consider a "spitfire." I will defend my friends to the end if someone is picking on them. I can be as charming as I need to be and can often talk my way into (or OUT OF, depending on the circumstances) any situation. I also have an insane amount of energy for someone my size and don't really care about what people expect me to be. I'm a pretty creative person, (which leos and sag both are known for), and I'm always up to try new things. (And you thought astrology was easy).
