12 Grimmauld Place, London - The Ground Floor

Sirius Black, Harry Potter's Godfather, donated his family residence as the headquarters for the Order of the Phoenix. His father Orion Black heavily fortified the family home as did many others. Orion married his second cousin Walburga Black*. They are parents of Sirius and Regulus. Sirius is an Animagus, called 'Padfoot' because he transforms into a shaggy black dog.

12 Grimmauld Place was first protected by a Fidelius Charm, the same hiding charm Dumbledore advised for James and Lily Potter, when You-Know-Who was looking for them years before.

Harry learned the story of Sirius Black and his father at The Three Broomsticks while concealed in his cloak of invisibility. Cornelius Fudge met with Madam Rosmerta and some of Harry’s teachers to discuss the news that Sirius Black somehow managed to break out of Azkaban prison. The conversation went back to the circumstances of the Potters’ betrayal by one of their closest friends.

12 Grimmauld Place - The Entry
When the front door to the Black residence opens, the long hall, lit with gas lamps and a large overhead chandelier, carries akasha straight to the end of the narrow passage that leads down into a sunken dining room. At one time this must have been a grand entryway, complete with ornate portraits on the walls, but by the time Harry first visited the house it was gloomy and cobwebby, with the wallpaper peeling off and the carpet worn thin (OP4). When a passage channels hot akasha it will often require constant maintenance due to wear and tear. Note the condition of the wallpaper in the area near the stove in the kitchen [enlarge picture].

Of all the portraits, the most prominent (though it's often covered with curtains) is an enormous portrait of Walburga Black, stuck to the wall via a Permanent Sticking Charm, which takes to screaming at the top of her lungs whenever she spots "Mudbloods" [the Order of the Phoenix] in her house (OP5).

Constant disapproval of the OOP activities is voiced by the house elf Kreacher, who has to be reprimanded at regular intervals by Sirius.

Much of the decor in the entry hall is made of serpents, though there is also an umbrella stand made from the severed leg of a troll, that Tonks is particularly prone to knocking over (OP4). The serpent is a symbol of life and death, and can be interpreted as energy that fights to protect the human soul or to devour it. These are the first images Harry Potter encounters when he is delivered to the Black residence by the Advance Guard in OOP.

Note: there are three Unforgivable Curses that were used extensively by You-Know-Who's followers during his rise to power in the 1970s. Anyone who uses them is asking for a one way ticket to Azkaban. The three curses are:

- Cruciatus Curse (Crucio): this spell causes the victim to suffer almost intolerable pain. Some victims of prolonged use of this curse have been driven insane.
- Imperius Curse (Imperio): this spell causes the victim to be completely under the command of the caster, who can make the victim do anything the caster wishes.
- Killing Curse (Avada Kedavra): Causes instant death in a flash of green light, usually leaving no sign of physical damage or of the cause of death that would be detectable to a Muggle autopsy.


Star Chart Mercury for Helena Bonham Carter and Gary Oldman

Most astrologers agree that, next to the Sun, Moon, and Ascendant, Mercury is the most important factor in the horoscope. Some astrologers follow the Midheaven indications after the Ascendant, then apply the Mercury aspects, especially when they are progressed. If Mercury rules a department of life [house] progressed aspects should be determined at least once a year.

Belatrix LaStrange and Sirius Black are cousins, enemies, and rivals, in the Harry Potter storyline. They are portrayed by players with electric Mercury expressions, or garments. Helena Bonham Carter has her Mercury 3° Gemini 44' [conjunct her Mars] and Gary Oldman has his Mercury 16° Aries 13' [conjunct his Sun by sign, but not combust].

Mercury in an air sign, especially his own Gemini, will excel with regard to social relationships and communication skill, psychology and analysis. Mercury in a fire sign, especially near exalted Sun in Aries, indicated intellectual leadership, confidence of the pioneer, ground breaker, and entrepreneur.

When Mercury in Gemini and Mercury in Aries try to undermine each other, especially in the world of business, speculative proposals and corporate planning, the sparks can fly. If Aries can successfully control the time of the meeting, preparations that may be required or are underway, and/or the location where the meeting will take place, Aries can get the best of Gemini. Because Gemini adapts to change so quickly, Aries may use the element of surprise, distraction, or superficial conversation to change the train of thought that was developed by Gemini. Once this happens Gemini will have forgotten the items originally intended for debate – opening the door for Aries to seize the moment and get his point across.

On the other hand, the advantage Gemini can best use against Aries is eloquence and the ability to effectively paint a verbal picture. Aries can "see" an hourglass with sands quickly passing from one globe into the other. Once Gem can get Aries into a pressure-cooker, or paint him into a corner, Aries must keep up in order to remain in the game. Aries may be pushed into a final statement or be forced to sacrifice a different advantage in another situation because of time constraints. Aries could be convinced to support something before contributing factors have gelled or it is advantageous, financially viable, or logistically convenient.

Sirius Black and Harry Potter in Ministry of Magic

Sirius was born on August 7th, 1959. His father, Orion Black and his mother Walburga Black, were supporters of the extreme philosophy associated with an exclusive clique in the House of Slytherin at Hogwarts. For a short time his younger brother Regulus also supported the followers of Voldemort. Regulus died by murder, either at the hand of Voldemort or one of his agents, when he wanted out of the Death Eaters, at the age of 18 in 1979. Sirius' paternal grandfather was Arcturus Black and his paternal grandmother is Melania McMillan (Black); his maternal grandfather was Pollux Black and his maternal grandmother is Irma Crabbe (Black). Sirius died at the age of 36 in the Ministry of Magic during June 1996.

Sirius was best friends with James Potter, Harry's father, and was also friends with Remus Lupin and Peter Pettigrew. When the group discovered that Lupin was a werewolf, they studied secretly to become Animagi in solidarity with Lupin, to keep him company during his transformations.

Popular, honoured star, known for versatility and ability to properly execute accents and manners associated with multiple cultures and time frames. Success perhaps in part due to several zero degree placements [of planets] associated with his skill, professional nature, and career management style.

Note the complex 8th house that involves passion, surrender, and transformation, often where the native will walk the line between life and death. House of mystery drama, initiation, and all that is concealed from the world of mortals. The Marauder's Map, Potter's Cloak of Invisibility, and other mystic power objects able to assist someone or their thoughts [to focus] are all linked with this Department of Life.

There is a part of our brain called the horn of Ammon, a group of nerve cells within the hippocampus, which are clustered together in the shape of a horn, and make up the 'horn of Ammon'. The hippocampus consists of two 'horns' that curve back from the area of the hypothalamus to the amygdala. It appears to be very important in converting things that are 'in your mind' at the moment (in short-term memory) into things that you will remember for the long run (long-term memory).

The Ram's Horn is used at the time of the Equinox to announce the old year past and the time that a new cycle will begin. We surrender or 'molt' the old shell, or outside cover, in anticipation of the new life cycle on the horizon. Snakes shed their skin annually in this way. The Ram's Horn is common to many ancient cultures, including Native American Indian descendants of the Anasazi [wise ones] in the American Pacific Southwest.

Eridanus, the River of Life is in the Leo Decanate of Aries
Eridanus is the name of a Greek river god that has been associated with the Euphrates, Nile, and others. When Phaethon was struck down by Zeus for mishandling his father's chariot of the sun, he fell into the river Eridanus whose sisters were turned into poplar trees for having encouraged him. The sun which rules this Leo decanate of Aries is exalted here, as spring comes forth with new life. The second decanate of Aries is linked with the healing waters of the Chalice Well in Glastonbury and Aquae Sulis, part of a widespread cult that permeated European culture for millenniums [also see the city Bath]. This vital energy has been associated with the fountain of youth. The influence of Leo brings power, strength of will, and ambition. The keyword is Dominion.


The 4 Marauders were four Gryffindor students at Hogwarts during 1971 – 1978; three were Animagi, and one a werewolf. James Potter was also known as Prongs because he transformed into a stag. Sirius Black became a large black dog so he went by the name Padfoot. Peter Pettigrew transformed into a rat so his nickname was Wormtail, and later, as Ron Weasley’s pet rat, called Scabbers. Remus Lupin, aka Moony, would change into a werewolf when the moon was full, but he was not an Animagus.

check Autumn - Early Winter, Trump XVIII THE MOON

The 4 Marauders authored the Marauder’s Map, a clever device that revealed to those who knew how to read it, the specific details of Hogwarts interior. Anyone within the walls of the castle could be tracked with the map. The identity of an individual, their current location, or movements on a variety of traffic lanes, could all be ascertained by way of the Marauder’s Map. It should be noted there is a degree of irony in the fact that the map created by the Marauders was instrumental in discovering the truth about two of it’s authors. Once the true identity of Scabbers, registering on the map as Peter Pettigrew, was clear, the scales of justice shifted. All the fabricated charges against Sirius Black were disproven at once and the evident treachery of Wormtail changed everything.

"Mr. Moony presents his compliments to Professor Snape and begs him to keep his abnormally large nose out of other people's business.
Mr. Prongs agrees with Mr. Moony and would like to add that Professor Snape is an ugly git.
Mr. Padfoot would like to register his astonishment that an idiot like that ever became a Professor.
Mr. Wormtail bids Professor Snape good day, and advises him to wash his hair, the slime-ball."

—The Map's response to Severus Snape's attempt to reveal the Map's secrets.

The map is normally disguised as a blank piece of parchment. To view the map, one must tap it with one's wand and recite, "I solemnly swear that I am up to no good." The content of the map will reveal itself.

To hide the contents of the map so the parchment appears blank again, one must again tap it and recite, "Mischief managed."

* Descriptions of Walburga (Black) Black, daughter of Pollux and Irma (Crabbe) Black, from Order of the Phoenix:

The moth-eaten velvet curtains Harry had passed earlier had flown apart, but there was no door behind them. For a split second, Harry thought he was looking through a window, a window behind which an old woman in a black cap was screaming and screaming as though she were being tortured - then he realized it was simply a life-size portrait, but the most realistic, and the most unpleasant, he had ever seen in his life.

The old woman was drooling, her eyes were rolling, the yellowing skin of her face stretched taut as she screamed; and all along the hall behind them, the other portraits awoke and began to yell, too, so that Harry actually screwed up his eyes at the noise and clapped his hands over his ears.

One of the Three Unforgiveable Curses wielded by Lestrange against Sirius Black.

Helena Bonham Carter has Sun-Mars conjunction within the force pattern of Aldebaran; the "Bull's-eye" is what we call "the centre of a target, which usually carries the highest score", and "a precise or highly effective achievement":

The Gemini were invoked by the Greeks and Romans in war as well as in storm. The Twins are associated with the electrical phenomenon [Saint Elmo's fire] common in heavy weather at sea, well known in ancient times, as it is now. Pliny described it at length in the Historia Naturalis, and allusions to it are frequent in all literature; the idea being that a double light, called Castor and Pollux, was favorable to the mariner. Horace designated this as Fratres Helenae, lucida sidera, rendered by Mr. Gladstone "Helen's Brethren, Starry Lights"; Rabelais wrote:

"He had seen Castor at the main yard arm."

A single light was "that dreadful, cursed, and threatening meteor called Helena," — the sister of the Twins that brought such ill luck to Troy.

Generally, the zodiacal sign Gemini rules birds [usually suggested are the swan, pelican, and phoenix]. In myth the twins Castor and Pollux emerged from eggs. Many birds employ the same masonry techniques in their nest-building as humans use to make bricks and build, referring to the building of the first city.

Powerful Sun-Mercury aspects suggest one of Bonham Carter's power animals is a wolf, sacred to both Aries and Gemini [Mars and Mercury], as the surrogate mother of Rome

The Wolf is linked with the prototype archetype Anubis, God of Embalmers, Psychiatrists, and Intra-dimensional travel
Roman: Mercury
Greek: Hermes
Christian: St. Raphael

Ursa Minor - Gemini Decanate of Gemini
Ursa Minor, the little bear, represents the first decanate of Gemini, the intuitive part of the mind. This double Gemini decanate ruled by Mercury can be very intelligent, perceptive, skillful, and youthful. When one's attention is well directed insights can come from the unconscious mind. The guiding pole star found in this constellation symbolizes the important principle of truth that must ever be one's guide. When Mercury is retrograde during the year, this part of the intellect helps steer the waking conscious mind to correct decision and choice. Interest in communication, education, and the arts may be indicated. The keyword is Intuition.
