The Harry Potter Character You'd Relate To If You're A Sagittarius

The Harry Potter series has been beloved since the first book was released in 1998, per Vox, though the books have been banned surprisingly often due to their subject matter, including witches, wizards, and spells. The fandom has also experienced a deep shift in the last few years. The book's author JK Rowling came under fire for tweets that promoted a TERF agenda or advanced views held by trans-exclusionary radical feminists

After Rowling doubled down on her comments via her personal website, many fans felt alienated from the Harry Potter series. However, a movement emerged in which fans were able to reclaim the series without glorifying its author, per The New York Times. This included de-investing from products or experiences that might financially benefit Rowling directly or increase her public platform.

Still, the fandom has long admired the series' characters and felt connected to certain Hogwarts houses based on their personality traits. Cosmopolitan sees Gryffindor as the right fit for Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius, due to the fire signs' strong sense of loyalty and bravery. But what characters serve as the best representatives for the archer? 

We'll have to judge this using a combination of the book and movie versions of the characters since the actors bringing the series to life have certainly influenced popular opinion. Though TikTok tried to nail the assignment, it will take a more thorough investigation to figure out just where the archer lands among the "Harry Potter" series' magical cast of characters.

The Weasleys have strong Sag energy

Sagittarians are known for their joyful approach to life, their love of travel, and their tendency to take up the class clown mantle, per Refinery29. Based on these strengths, Looper pairs the archer with the most mischievous characters in the "Harry Potter" series, Fred and George Weasley. The twins are generous like Sag, sharing the Marauder's Map with Harry when he needed it in "The Prisoner of Azkaban."

They are also optimistic like Sag; when the atmosphere changed for the worse at Hogwarts in "The Order of the Phoenix," they broke off on their own, hoping for the best as they opened a joke shop in Diagon Alley. Sagittarius is known as a bit of an escapist, and the archer might have made a similar exit plan when the Ministry of Magic took over Hogwarts.

Sagittarius' weaknesses also align with Fred and George's since they may lack tact in their delivery and make a joke of serious situations. George saying "I'm holey, Fred," when his ear got blown off in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" seemed like a classic Sag move. 

However, Bill Weasley is the actual Sagittarius of the Weasley family, with a birthday on November 29, per the movie's Twitter. According to Elite Daily, Bill has a powerful and warm presence and can command a room when he needs to. But other outlets focus on Sag's consistent larger-than-life presence, consequently matching the archer with some of the series' most polarizing characters.

There's disagreement on Sagittarius' alignment with dark wizards

New York Post sees none other than chaotic villain and certified Death Eater Bellatrix Lestrange as the character with the strongest Sagittarius energy in the "Harry Potter" series. The outlet cites Bellatrix's free-spirited attitude and spontaneity as its primary reasoning, though it's safe to assume she would represent the archer in their most toxic form.

Bustle's choice to take up Sag's torch is Bellatrix Lestrange's cousin, Sirius Black, a restless spirit like Bellatrix who also spent time — though unjustly — in Azkaban prison. However, Bellatrix was sorted into Slytherin House back at Hogwarts, while Sirius was in Gryffindor. When the audience meets Sirius in "The Prisoner of Azkaban," it's clear that his spirit and true Gryffindor courage proved impossible to snuff out, even after 12 years in prison, per Screen Rant.

However, both TheThings and BuzzFeed agree that Rubius Hagrid, Hogwarts' beloved gamekeeper, is the true Sagittarius representative in the series. With a birthday on December 6, this archer consistently exemplifies Sag's generous and playful nature. Hagrid's impulsive decisions throughout the series also seemed to line up with how Sagittarius approaches life. But, like any Sag, Hagrid always meant well, and his loyalty and enthusiasm make him a fierce friend with a strong moral compass.
