Chez Slytherin is Tres Scorp

Slytherin Common Room At Hogwarts

This is actually the Slytherin Common Room at Hogwarts, the Witching/Wizardry school in Harry Potter but it’s SO Scorp, is it not?

A Leo, J.K. Rowling has an apparent distaste for Scorpios and Capricorns. The house system at Hogwarts basically corresponds to the Fixed Signs of the Zodiac (Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, Scorpio)  – the same ones you see depicted on The World card of the Tarot and as sculptures or decorative windows of many old churches.

Her arch-villain Voldemort is a Capricorn (yes, she provides all the birthdates), nearly everyone fab is a Leo and there is even a character (bad) called Scorpius Malfoy.

But whomever styled this room above totally channeled the Scorpio vision, this place would smell of mugwort, darkest patchouli and…what else?

And isn’t it true that Scorps do have a penchant for black leather, whether in couches or other things?

I’ve never met fellow a Cap I liked but I’ve respected them all and I have to admit I rolled eyes and laughed when I discovered that both Serv and Volde are Caps like myself. I have Sun and Moon in Cap and ascendant in Scorpio. I don’t mind that the Leos are shown as protagonists because I’m married to a Leo. I want to be in Hufflepuff! (yes, I realize that HP is fiction). The issue with Snape’s loyalty and the misunderstandings around it are also in my experience very typically experienced by Caps; We’re often assumed to be… Read more »

I think my mother would agree with you about the dishonesty thing- she’s a cap with a scorp moon and has always had issues (with others) about truthfulness. SHE would say she’s being completely honest. However! My psych told me once ‘If you try and search for the truth, you’ll send yourself mad. The truth is different to different ppl, and what may be the truth at one time to one person, may not be another time.’ As to what the room smells like? I was going to say SEX! But then I remembered- it’s a boarding school! Sooo, musk,… Read more »

You forgot about Crab from Slytherin! Slytherin represents water signs, so she must hate Cancerians.

As a multiple-conjunct Scorp AND multiple-conjunct Cap, I like very little about this room…mostly because there is nothing deep red, which is sort of a Gryffindor color in that world, but definitely Scorpy.

And I have always identified with Ravenclaw, despite only having Mars in Gemini.

I’m surprised no one’s mentioned that Scorpius is actually a character’s KID, who doesn’t show up till the end – and Scorpius’s dad does go through quite a bit of change in the book. The book is from Harry’s POV so it will reveal his own prejudices (which aren’t necessarily shared by Rowling), but Rowling makes a HUGE deal in the book about how just because you’re from this house or this background doesn’t necessarily mark you as a bad person. One of the bad guys (Pettigrew) is Gryffindor, and Harry’s dad was quite the asshole. the series is more… Read more »

This Scorp is so attracted to black. I love artwork, if there something black in the picture. I love clothing with some element of black. Black just thrills me. I can’t explain it.

I’m a Scorpio Moon conj Pluto, and have Mars in the 8th.

I don’t really care much for the Slytherin room. The leather couches are definitely Scorpio.

I much prefer Snape’s classroom with all the chemistry, intensity, stark darkness, and antiquity…not to mention that character’s penchant for privacy, dark works for a bright cause, transformative revelations, and cutting smartasses down to size!

I think this looks quite nice, but I wouldn’t want to live there… needs to be, I dunno, a little bit warmer or something something.
Something I have been wracking my brain over is what is the ‘Scorpionic look’? In my consult, Mystic said that it was a good look for me… and I am trying to work out whether I need to upgrade my wardrobe. I don’t want to email her and ask, cos that seems to be just a little shallow and vacuous.
I live with a scorp and he just wears black everthing and army shirts…
Help please?

Strong funky tailoring – I’m thinking Dogstar kind of tailoring, edgy, funky, really strong lines. No need for black everything – just black statement pieces – black wool skivvy, fitted black jacket (any material), well fitting black trousers (long in the leg for heels), and a couple of black singlets/fitted Ts/long T’s. Maybe a LBD. A handful of RED accessories – scarf, earings, necklace – whatever your preferred statement pieces are. Hmmm, just realised that list is great for someone who looks good in black – all of the above can also be done in dark grey or blue –… Read more »

I would like to point out that Prof Snape was a Capricorn and was in house of Slytherin. He was a hero.

Being a Scorp Rising I have to agree low Scorps archtypes
make the best villains in a children’s novel.

I am in love with everything about this room, especially the old church/castle feel. Everything about it is SO perfect for this Scorpio. (I’m wondering what the zig zag lines on the wall above the chandelier are about, wish I could see more). As for JK.. I’ve never read any of the books and actually walked out halfway through one of the movies… I found it laboriously sloooooow. yawn.

I don’t dislike the room, but it feels heavy and dark. It is probably damp and would smell moldy. I know I would be depressed if I had to spend a few hours in there.

Your first sentence says it all. A Leo, huh? Well, interestingly enough I’m a Scorp/Cap and I loathe Leos and I’ll just say anything having to do with Harry Potter. So there! Okay, maybe it’s my Cap moon and Asc. but that couch is absolutely hideous, color and all. I do love leather (pants in particular) but for a couch I would go red. The whole rooms feels oppressive– heavy, musty and cold. No thank you!

Okay, I hadn’t had ample coffee at the time of my post. Let me soften my comment about Leos: I have a difficult time w/ their over self-involvement at times.

Believe me, our over self-involvement causes us more tears in our lives than it will ever cause you! My darling son is Cappy Scorp Rising – so of course I loooove your kind. 🙂

I think my Leo Sun likes the sandstone but my Scorp Moon likes the green mould thereupon.

Those green chesterfields aren’t so comfy, my friend has a couple and they are quite Saturnian and firm. My venus in cancer does not approve.

leogroover
leogroover

hey andro we have the same sun,moon and venus. I like this room too but thought the green mould was like a moss and would give off a very earthy smell. My venus wouldli ke bit of burgundy fittings or rug to add some colour and a suitable captive to play with that would satisfy all V S & M.

Andromeda
Andromeda

Didn’t realise that leogroover! Ok, my venus needs loads more Crusades Arabic or Moroccan influence I think, more Persian rugs, octagonal features, more fabric hangings and silver and glass russian tea-sets… That wagon wheel hanging from the roof needs to GO, I will always think of Taurean Cher after that post on her dining room.

Also agree on requiring a delicious creature to frolic with though I don’t know if I would prefer to captivate.. than hold captive. 🙂

why not both captive and captivate andro.? we are Leo we can have it all!!

I like the room but LOVE the dark green leather Chesterfield lounge and green velvet cushions. It’s always been a dream of mine to own a lounge like that, but it needs to be in a big room and I’ve always lived in one bedroom apartments… one day… *sigh*

I picture myself with a scotch, smoking a cigarette in this room.

My b/f is a Scorp with no particular interest in interior design but he really wants to buy an old church and live in it – and, I’m sure, take his large collection of “pleasure toys” (and me) along for the move Now that you mention J.K’s anti Scorp/ Cappy thing it makes me more pleased that I think Harry Potter is puerile and not worthy of my time (despite all those gushing people telling me I MUST read it). I find Scorps and Caps generally to be nice, hard working people – the kind of people you want to… Read more »

I actually like this room. Something distinctly dark and sexy about it. Would like to visit a lover here, or come back here with friends after a night out.

I always knew there was something ditasteful about that woman. Who misuses astrology that way? Thank goodness I never got in the Harry Potter books. Though I do love the look of the films, I always fall asleep and lose the plot halfway through them. That room for instance: LOVE.

‘But whomever styled this room above totally channeled the Scorpio vision, this place would smell of mugwort, darkest patchouli and…what else?’….

First thing that springs to mind is enough junior jizz to give even a hogswarts CSI person a fit when discovering organic matter after some annoying/tragic death at an after term end party.

I find that amusing she made Leo all pure and dissed Caps and Scorps. If I ever wrote a book I wouldn’t be so black and white. Can see why the houses would be divided into the signs though. Scorps are so different in the channeling of plutonian themes. I know serveral that prefer bright acid colours and pop hues over anything gothic. or vegans!
though I am mega predictable in terms of yes leather love it. dark rich colours. love it. any house that looks like it has secret passageways and medieval style archways. prrrrrr.

OH, NO. I’m Scorp with Cap rising… with Pluto, Mars, Mercury, and Midheaven in Scorp as well, heh heh heh. She is my hero and she already has an apparent distaste for me 🙁

Also, on the subject of black leather and other Scorpionic decor, my bedroom has turquoise walls, white furniture, floral bedding, and smells of Dior Chérie.
