What Hogwarts is Libra?

Astrology and the Harry Potter universe are two popular interests that often intersect. Many fans enjoy sorting characters into Hogwarts houses based on their zodiac signs. So what Hogwarts house do Libras belong to? Here’s a look at how Libra matches up with each house.

Libra Traits

First, a quick overview of Libra’s main astrological traits:

  • Air sign
  • Cardinal sign
  • Ruled by planet Venus
  • Symbolized by the scales
  • Dates: September 23 – October 22

General Libra traits:

  • Diplomatic
  • Graceful
  • Peaceful
  • Idealistic
  • Romantic
  • Charming
  • Indecisive
  • Avoidant of conflict
  • Desire harmony


Gryffindor house values bravery, nerve, chivalry, courage, and determination. Gryffindors tend to be adventurous, passionate, and bold. Does this sound like Libra?

In some ways, yes. Libras do have an idealistic side and desire to do what’s right. They can be motivated by their values and want to improve the world around them. However, Libras tend to prefer diplomacy over bold, direct action. They’re more likely to think through a situation rationally rather than jumping into it impulsively.

Libras also dislike conflict and tend to be indecisive, while Gryffindors are OK charging ahead even if it ruffles some feathers. Gryffindors are not afraid to speak up passionately for their beliefs, whereas Libras will carefully weigh both sides first. Overall, Libras do not match the Gryffindor temperament very closely.


Hufflepuffs value hard work, patience, justice, and loyalty. They tend to be kind, easygoing, and inclusive of others. How does this compare to Libra?

There’s definitely some overlap here. Libras share the Hufflepuff desire for fairness and justice. They want everyone to get along harmoniously. Libras are known for being diplomatic, gracious, and charming. They avoid conflict and feel most comfortable in a peaceful environment.

However, Libras can be very indecisive since they weigh every option so carefully. Hufflepuffs are more steady and consistent in their work ethic. Libras may lack follow-through on their ideals if the scale tips back and forth too much. They also dislike messy emotions, while Hufflepuffs are very empathetic and in tune with feelings.


Ravenclaws are known for their wisdom, wit, learning, and intellect. Does the pursuit of knowledge appeal to Libra sensibilities?

Absolutely. Libras have an intellectual side and enjoy mental stimulation. They like discussing big ideas and abstract concepts. Libras value intelligence in themselves and others. They’re often found devouring books, exploring philosophies, or analyzing art and culture.

However, Libras may not have the same laser academic focus of some Ravenclaws. Libra’s sign symbol, the scales, represents a weighing of options – they’re always considering different angles and perspectives. This makes them excellent listeners who can see many points of view. But it also causes indecisiveness when definitive conclusions must be drawn.


Slytherins are known for being resourceful, ambitious, cunning, and achievement-oriented. Do these traits fit with Libra’s outlook?

There are certainly some similarities here. Libras can be ambitious in their desire to create a beautiful, harmonious, and socially just world. They tend to be attracted to positions of leadership or diplomacy that let them facilitate cooperation and balance. Libras can be persuasive when they want to achieve an ideal or convince people to get along.

However, Libras are unlikely to be highly cunning or resourceful. They prefer to achieve their ends through charm rather than secret maneuvering. And they tend to be more easygoing than the highly competitive Slytherins. Libras like nicer forms of achievement, such as creating lovely art or building a smooth-running system. Slytherins gravitate toward power, influence, and recognition – goals that are usually secondary for Libras.

The Verdict: Ravenclaw

Based on Libra’s traits – the desire for beauty, justice, and intellectual exploration – they seem best matched for Ravenclaw house at Hogwarts. Libras would feel right at home in Ravenclaw Tower discussing philosophy, learning magic, and contemplating the nature of reality. The Ravenclaw worldview aligns most closely with Libra’s search for truth through consideration of many options. Libras are inquisitive students seeking enlightenment through knowledge, reason, and ideals.

Here is a visual comparison of Libra traits vs. each Hogwarts house:

Libra Ravenclaws

Famous Ravenclaws include:

  • Luna Lovegood
  • Garrick Ollivander
  • Sybill Trelawney
  • Gilderoy Lockhart
  • Cho Chang

While none have confirmed zodiac signs, Luna Lovegood in particular seems to represent the airy, idealistic side of Libra. Known for her dreamy and whimsical perspective, Luna has a strong inner belief system she faithfully adheres to. She doesn’t care what others think of her non-conformity. Lunavalues open-mindedness, imagination, and individuality – all very Libra ideals. Her quest for knowledge beyond the norm also aligns with Libra’s curiosity and desire for enlightenment.


Libras are best matched for Ravenclaw house at Hogwarts due to a shared inclination toward knowledge, intellect, and truth through impartial analysis. While possessing some traits of Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin, Libra’s core values resonate most strongly with those prized by Ravenclaw house.
