Hermione Granger was born on 19 September 1979, making her a Virgo, which should be no surprise! Virgos are highly intelligent and have analytical minds that thrive in academic settings. They also tend to be highly organized perfectionists with a sharp, self-critical edge.
Did J.K. Rowling decide to make the astute and academic Hermione a Virgo, or is it just something that happened magically as she was creating her wizarding world? Either way, let’s see how well Hermione’s character aligns with her astrological chart.
Hermione Granger’s Sun Sign – Virgo
Your sun sign reflects your principal traits that form the basis of your personality. Virgos are intelligent, motivated, and dedicated, making them the overachievers of the zodiac. This certainly sums up Hermione.
Hermione, like most Virgos, is not just naturally intelligent. She also believes in working hard to expand her mind and learn.
While others might criticize her efforts, she doesn’t care. Virgos believe strongly in self-improvement, but they work to please themselves, rather than others.
It is not so much that Virgos don’t care what other people think, but more than they are their own worst critics, so the opinions of others can’t hurt them too much.
Hermione’s obsessing over exam results and getting upset when she receives a less than perfect mark are classic Virgo character traits.
Virgos are also highly organized, which they need to be as they always tend to be working on a lot of different things. This often has them fall into practical leadership roles.
Hermione shows her organization and leadership skills in The Deathly Hallows, when it turns out she’s been walking around with a fully packed magical bag for months (including a tent).
Fun fact – Emma Watson, the actress who plays Hermione, is an Aries, a much more charismatic and impulsive sign, but one that is just as motivated and dedicated to success.
Hermione Granger’s Moon Sign – Virgo
J.K. Rowling never tells us Hermione’s exact time of birth, so it is difficult to determine other elements of her natal chart, such as his moon sign and his ascendant sign.
However, let’s assume that she was born sometime near midday, which would make her Moon sign Virgo too!
Your moon sign reflects how you think, your inner world, and your emotional tendencies.
People with the Moon in Virgo are highly sensitive to emotions and social interactions and good at reading situations. This means that they give great advice, and Hermione often gives Harry and Ginny excellent advice.
But applying that to their own lives is difficult. Virgos tend to hide their feelings from others for fear of getting hurt. There is a reason it took so long for Ron and Hermione to admit their feelings (Ron is a Moon in Virgo too).
Hermione Granger’s Ascendant Sign – Scorpio
Your ascendant sign reveals how you relate to other people and where you view your place in the world. According to our calculations, Hermione is Ascendant in Scorpio.
Scorpio ascendant explains the natural charisma that Hermione has, despite her “bookish” nature.
Scorpio ascendants have an intense emotional energy under the surface that tends to make them intriguing to others. It tends to take a while for people with this aspect in their natal chart to warm up to others.
People with Scorpio Ascendant also tend to be attracted to a partner with a calm, steady, peaceful manner, which acts as an antidote to their own intensity. We can clearly see this desire in Hermione’s attraction to Ron’s energy.
Hermione Granger’s Personal Planets
The placement of Mercury, Venus, and Mars reveals further insights into their personality, which is why they are called personal plants.
The placement of the more distant plants are considered generational, as the long time that they take to transit the signs means that they affect entire generations.
Mercury in Libra
The position of Mercury reflects logic and communication. While Virgos can find it difficult to open up and make friends, Mercury in Libra can help us understand how Hermione overcomes this.
This element communicates with grace and dignity and tends to be naturally diplomatic when addressing challenging issues.
Venus in Libra
Venus reflects your approach to love and romance. To have Venus in Libra suggests a natural charm and grace, which will pair nicely with Hermione’s Ascendant Scorpio charisma.
It also indicates someone who is looking for friendship first, and who prizes that kind of connection over pure chemistry.
Mars in Cancer
Mars represents how we manage conflict. When Mars is in Cancer, this often means that anger manifests as passive-aggressive beahvior.
We certainly see this when it comes to Ron’s relationship with Lavender Brown. Mars in Cancer usually want other people to read their mind and understand why they are upset.
What does Hermione’s natal chart mean for his relationships with many of the other characters that appear in the books, in particular best friend Harry and her eventual love interest Ron?
Harry Potter is a Leo, meaning he is charismatic, caring, courageous, and reckless. A Virgo like Hermione will appreciate Leo’s good qualities more than most, but will find their failure to prepare and put in hard work when needed frustrating.
We often see Hermione frustrated with Harry when helping him with his schoolwork. But ultimately, the two complement each other.
Ron Weasley is a Pisces, which explains why he lets his emotions dictate his actions, and why he tends to be unorganized, and a bit scatter brained.
Hermione and Ron are opposites, but this explains their attraction. Pisces needs someone to give them the structure that they can’t give themselves. Virgo needs someone of a lower intensity to offset their own laser focus.
What do you think of Hermione’s horoscope, does it accurately reflect his character? Do you think that J.K. Rowling had an intellectual and perfectionist Virgo in mind when she was creating Hermione, or did the stars just align?
