The Quidditch World Cup



Interior of Weasley Tent at Quidditch World Cup, similar to decor of Arabella [Doreen] Figg's residence, expressive of the Autumn personality, probably a combination of Tawny Autumn and Metallic Autumn [scroll down] * Energetic: Colourful, Woodsy, and Spicy; and Bizarre: Gypsy-like and Vital. Designs of distinction, odd & unusual effects, ornate furnishings.

 

We're coming for you whether the Muggles like it or not, you can't miss the World Cup, only Mum and Dad reckon it's better of we pretend to ask their permission first. If they say yes, send Pig back with your answer pronto, and we'll come and get you at five o'clock on Sunday. If they say no, send Pig back pronto and we'll come and get you at five o?clock on Sunday anyway.

Hermione's arriving this afternoon. Percy's started work at the Department of International Magical Cooperation. Don't mention anything about Abroad while you're here unless you want the pants bored off you.

See you soon --

Chapter Three, The Invitation - Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

 

The Quidditch World Cup, between Bulgaria and Ireland, is the first held in Britain in 30 years. The property used for the World Cup is Muggle-owned, with 200 portkeys neatly placed all around the country. The Weasleys take off for the event with the Stoatshead Hill portkey that looks like an old boot. They arrive on a misty moor at seven minutes after five in the morning. By the time they get to the exotic campground, the crowd is massive.

In front of the campsite, a small standing sign with the name 'Weezly' was thoughtfully placed to mark the spot. The group is comfortable in the cozy quarters they assemble without effort. Outside, the appearance of a two-man tent covers the precautionary steps required within a Muggle zone locale. There will be a fire, always part of the Muggle camp, and a hike to the water supply.

Harry bent down, ducked under the tent flap,
and felt his jaw drop. He had walked into what
looked like an old-fashioned, three room flat,
complete with bathroom and kitchen. Oddly
enough, it was furnished in exactly the same
sort of style as Mrs. Figg's house: there were
crocheted covers on the mismatched chairs and
a strong smell of cats.


On their way back from the tap with water, Hermione, Harry, and Ron saw familiar faces in the crowd. Students from Hogwarts were there with their families. Oliver Wood, the old Captain of Harry's House Quidditch team, who had just left Hogwarts, dragged Harry over to his parents' tent, to introduce him, and told him excitedly that he had just been signed to the Puddlemere United reserve team. They were hailed by Ernie Macmillan, a Hufflepuff fourth year, and so on as they passed through the assembled sports fans.

EGG, The Philosophic: Glass vessel containing the philosophic substance for the final coction.

ELIXIR OF LIFE: The Philosophic Stone in a homeopathic dose.

Rupert Grint has his Mercury [how you think] in the constellation Crater, The Cup - Alkes, alpha. Alchemy - the Cup, Cauldron, Goblet, Grail and Bowl of Stars.

In early Greek days it represented the cup of Apollo/Phoebus. According to Ptolemy it gives a kind, generous, cheerful, receptive, passionate and hospitable nature with good mental abilities.

The Bowl with the gilt of its stars: Whoever derives hence his birth and character will be attracted by the well-watered meadows of the countryside, the rivers, and the lakes.

History of the star: The Arabic name for Alkes is Al-Ka's, "The cup". The Latin designation for this orange star in Crater is Fundus vasis - well describes its position at the base of the Cup.

According to tradition, The Holy Grail, Jesus Christ's cup, is associated Crater; according to medieval legend, the cup said to be used by Jesus Christ at the Last Supper, and carried by Mary Magdalene to Calvary to collect his blood and sweat at the Crucifixion, and then to France. It is central to the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, and was sought after by medieval knights throughout Europe.

Neptune 4 Scorpio Rx, Jupiter 23 Scorpio
Destiny Path = 11

Arthur Weasley is the patriarch of the Weasley family, all of whom are anchored in the Hogwarts style of wizardry and witchcraft, specifically Gryffindor House. Mr. Weasley first appears in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, when Harry stays with the Weasley family during the summer before Hogwarts opens. Arthur Weasley works at the Ministry of Magic, initially in the Misuse of Muggle Artefacts Office. The Muggle world fascinates him and he prides himself on his meticulous field work; his research and collection of gadgets & trinkets fill at least one overstuffed memento file.

Arthur Weasley's nickname for his wife Molly [Julie Walters] is "Mollywobbles." She personifies the ideal in maternal love. There is no wizard royalty.

There is only one source for Mark Williams DOB information so all that will herein pertain to his 11 Destiny Path and Star Chart originates from a Wiki biography that is posted with Harry Potter movie listing.

Constructing a Star Chart based on the birthdate 17 JUN 59 for dawn, the Sun in Gemini is quincunx Jupiter 23 Scorpio suggesting an avid collector [Gemini have two of everything they display, regardless of size - candlesticks, pictures, cars, or home. People with this aspect often prefer a duplex or something with a mother-in-law unit.] Scorpio will accent the rare, antique, fixer upper collection that may be brought in from the wild and put on display for others who visit... very likely to make an appearance in an office that would belong to Arthur Weasley.

Trump III The Empress, Queen, Unveiled Isis. She is Harry Potters adopted Mother

Molly Weasley (Prewett) is the wife of Arthur Weasley and mother of their seven children. She is first introduced with the twins and Ginny in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, when Harry has to board the train to Hogwarts. Harry cannot locate Platform Nine and Three Quarters and Molly appears on quque to provide instructions...­ the start of a beautiful friendship. Molly, like Trump III, is a multi-tasker, and has important information about interdimensional travel, like many in the wizarding world.

In Julie Walters Star Chart we find the sequence secured by her Sun quincunx Ascendant and first house Pluto in Leo [the hiding cape] who is able to cover with, or lift, the veil - a key to the hidden psyche seat of power. In the Wizarding World many things are seen and not heard, many more are not seen and not heard.

THE PHOENIX CONSTELLATION
Alpha Phoenix, Ankaa, is a star on the neck of the mythical Phoenix.

Julie has Pallas Athena trine Ankaa and her Vesta conjunct Ankaa.
Mark has Mercury trine Ankaa and his Ceres conjunct Jupiter trine Ankaa.

The ancient initiations were always held during the time Isis of the Windpipe and the Constellation Scorpio were high in the sky. The mysteries were dedicated to the act of opening the throat center so the neophyte could merge the seven 'metals' and seven sacred sounds. Later this mystery was passed on to the Temple of Serapis [who prepared last rites for Alexander the Great] where it survived and gradually merged with the early teachings of Christian mysticism.

 

The year 1473 saw the first ever Quidditch World Cup, though the nations represented were all European. The nonappearance of teams from more distant nations may be put down to the collapse of owls bearing letters of invitation, the reluctance of those invited to make such a long and perilous journey, or perhaps a simple preference for staying at home...

... The World Cup has since been held every four years, though it was not until the seventeenth century that non-European teams turned up to compete. In 1652 the European Cup was established, and it has been played every three years since.

Autumn Focalizers

Mrs. Figg probably has a Tawny Autumn personality. When she was in her teens she may have preferred the Metallic Autumn [more elegant and lavish hand] focalizers. Autumn personalities are famous for their guardian, navigation, and mediation skills. Mrs. Arabella Figg is Harry's neighbor when he is at the Dursleys. She is a Squib member of the Order of the Phoenix, charged with the protection of young Harry by Professor Dumbledore. Her hair is grizzled gray, and her Autumn wardrobe includes tartan carpet slippers. She breeds Kneazles and has a fondness for cats (including Tibbs, Snowy, Paws, and Mr. Tufty). She reveals her courageous spirit during a frightening attack on Harry and Dudley when they are trapped in a narrow passage by dementors, in The Order of the Phoenix. Mrs. Figg looks dainty and delicate but like many figures in mythology, her outward appearance is able to conceal quick-wittedness and alert perceptions.

Suzanne [Caygill] writes: "The dry wheat has been harvested, the golden pumpkins have been garnered, the red spicy winter apples have been gathered and stored away, the corn stalks are stacked and dry. It is the season of fruition, completion...

...Personalities who have rich, deep colorings and the metallic glow of Autumn are more likely to respond to interiors that reflect something of the forest or the earth. Deep browns, and wood-paneled rooms filled with greenery and intense colors involve the use of stone, brick, terra cotta and tile, and suggest Spanish, Italian, or Renaissance periods."

Autumn personalities are always moving, adaptable and mysterious, just like Mother Nature's swift change in temperature at this time of year. The Autumn type is elemental, with a rich, yet subtle glow, like swirling, multi-coloured leaves. Strong and sometimes flamboyant designs are the most becoming. It is possible to use lace or chiffon, but with restraint, and in the right colours. Cafe au lait or deep cocoa colored lace would be appropriate.

Prints should be something analogous to Autumn - leaf designs, woodsy effects, corn, geometric designs of distinction, odd and unusual effects, no flower prints unless very stylized. Paisley and Persian prints are good; paisley shot with metallic is excellent. Bronze or green orchids, shaggy chrysanthemums, oak and ebony inlay gives character and interest to the ornate furnishings appropriate to the autumn. Dramatic backgrounds are provided by sunken living rooms, arches, lanais, atriums filled with luxurious planting of shrubs, flowering plants and ferns; massive oversize fireplace is excellent.

The Universal Traveler and Competition of Olympic Proportion

The Autumnal Equinox is 'the week' on ancient social-religious calendars thought to be the cosmic link with the Dog Days, when Sirius rises. Ceres-Demeter, set to begin the search for her daughter, refers to civilization celebrating the journey stylized in the Eleusinian Mystery Plays for the two Equinoxes. Autumn is the ideal time for the Quidditch World Cup.

We are all pilgrims on the road of life, whether we view our journey through the waking conscious eye or by way of dream meditations. The Quidditch Cup is both. We experience individual and collective feelings during this type of event. Quidditch fans enter the coliseum divided into two groups because of team loyalty when the game begins, but eventually they join to celebrate a well played match regardless of who is the winner. The round stadium represents totality - the collective, Monad, that is a basic realization we share; the human race is composed of all the human beings who have ever lived and will ever live.

The World Cup is similar to an ancient ritual, staged as an adventure that begins with a simple walk through multi-coloured leaves, and requires we keep to a different kind of path than we usually trod. Our guides traveled this path before and know some awesome short cuts. The discovery of the old boot port key as a method of transportation sets up a later scene in the story, when Harry is caught up in the TriWizard Tournament.

In the early mystery play, items in the temple with incredible power were part of the rite - the garments, gemstones, and accoutrements capable of levitation. The Quidditch match is high up inside the coliseum; the starting line up of players spotlights both teams flying out of the locker room on brooms, amid fireworks and outstanding special effects.

The event proceeds with the most enthusiastic, spontaneous competitive spirit even though there are undertones of the challenging, edgy Slytheryn House, and the dangerous elements they bring to the party. This 'unraveling,' 'molting,' and 'phase of self-undoing' is a feature of the harvest, when we begin preparation for the following Spring. This chapter in the lexicon of natural alchemy, or agriculture, is also contained in Eleusinian Mystery Rites.

 

Goblet of Fire - The Tri-Wizard Champions will return soon

The Quidditch Cup is linked directly with Trump VI, indirectly with Trump IV,
Trump XIV and Trump XVII. The rise of Death Eaters refers to a reversal of Trump XVIII The Moon. Re associated Trump VI theme:

a) Similar to mystery drama scenario
b) Tent city, very close to a week living in tents - often observed near the Equinox
c) Introduction of the theme of Death Eaters [Venus mourns Adonis slain by the boar's tooth of Winter, rituals of Isis and Osiris, Heathcliff and Cathy, and so on. go Sirius Black and the Weeping Degree]
d) Struggle and resolution symbolized by two teams in competition [often symbolized by the six-pointed star, sometimes the two pillars at temple entrance, and the difference between living in the past and the future.]
Note: In early books and through The Order of the Phoenix, J.K. Rowling utilizes references to White and Black Arts, never Transcendental Magic.

THE BOY WHO LIVED

Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows
By J.K. Rowling
Book Review by Christopher Hitchens
New York Times, August 2007

In March 1940, in the 'midnight of the country' that marked the depth of the Hitler-Stalin pact (or in other words, at a time when civilization was menaced by an alliance between two Voldemorts or 'You-Know-Whos'), George Orwell took the time to examine the state of affairs in fantasy fiction for young people. And what he found (in an essay called 'Boys Weeklies') was an extraordinary level of addiction to the form of story that was set in English boarding schools. Every week, boys (and girls) from the poorer quarters of industrial towns and from the outer edges of the English-speaking Empire would invest some part of their pocket money to keep up with the adventures of Billy Bunter, Harry Wharton, Bob Cherry, Jack Blake and the other blazer-wearing denizens of Greyfriars and St. Jim's. As he wrote:

"It's quite clear that there are tens and scores of thousands of people to whom every detail of life at a post 'public school' is wildly thrilling and romantic. They happen to be outside that mystic world of quadrangles and house colors, but they can yearn after it, daydream about it, live mentally in it for hours at a stretch. The question is, Who are these people.?"

I wish that the morose veteran of Eton and St. Cyprian's had been able to join me on the publication night of, 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'. Never mind the stall that said, 'Get Your House Colors Here' and was dealing with customers wise in the customs of Ravenclaw and Slytherin, on the floor of the shop, largely transformed into the Gryffindor common room for the occasion, sat dozens of small children listening raptly to a reading from a massively plausible Hagrid. Of the 2,000 people or so in the forecourt, perhaps one-third had taken the trouble to wear perfect gowns and other Hogwarts or quidditch impedimenta. Many wore a lightning-flash on their foreheads: Orwell would have recoiled at seeing the symbol of Sir Oswald Mosley's British Union of Fascists on otherwise unblemished brows, even if the emblem was tamed by it's new white-magic associations. And this was a sideshow to the circus, all across the English-speaking and even non-English world, as the countdown to the witching hour began. [Pliny distinguished three types of thunderbolt. DKD]

I would give a lot to understand this phenomenon better.
Part of it must have to do with the extreme banality and conformity of school life as it is experienced today, with everything oriented toward safety on the one hand and correctness on the other.

But this on its own would not explain my youngest daughter a few years ago, sitting for hours on end with her tiny elbow flattening the pages of a fat book, and occasionally laughing out loud at the appearance of Scabbers the rat. (One hears that not all children retain the affection for reading that the Harry Potter books have inculcated: this isn't true in my house at least.)

Scabbers turns out to mutate into something a bit worse than a rat, and the ancient charm of metamorphosis is one that J.K. Rowling has exploited to the uttermost. Another well-tested appeal, that of the orphan hero, has also been given an intensive workout with the Copperfield-like privations of the eponymous hero. For Orwell, the English school story from Tom Brown to Kipling's Stalky and Co. was intimately bound up with dreams of wealth and class and snobbery, yet Rowling has succeeded in unmooring it from these considerations and giving us a world of youthful democracy and diversity, in which the humble leading figure has a name that - though it was given to a Shakespearean martial hero and king, could as well belong to an English labor union official. Perhaps Anglophilia continues to play its part, but if I were one of the few surviving teachers of Anglo-Saxon, I would rejoice at the way in which such terms as muggle and Wizengamot, and such names as Godric, Wulfric, and Dumbledore, had become common currency. At this rate, the teaching of Beowulf could be revived. The many Latin incantations and imprecations could also help rekindle interest in the study of a 'dead' language.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 wins the BAFTA for Special Visual Effects
The team at Double Negative delivered 409 shots and worked on some of the most exciting and visually stunning sequences in the film including the cart ride into the Gringotts vault, the Gringotts CGI dragon and the creation of a fully digital Hogwarts or ‘digi-Hogwarts’ which included extensive battle sequences and environment builds pre and post battle.
