Astrology Proves Mr. and Mrs. Weasley Are Relationship Goals
Arthur and Molly Weasley are the ultimate power couple. Their love for one another provides a beacon of hope during the chaos of war in the Harry Potter books.
I could go on for days about why I admire Arthur and Molly’s relationship. My favorite moment for Mr. and Mrs. Weasley happens in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. We hear Arthur use a nickname for his wife as his secret codeword, “Mollywobbles” (HBP 5). This silly moment of affection between Harry’s parental figures is rooted in compassion. It is a strong example of how love can withstand a violent and untrustworthy world.
My astrologer friend Jake from @jakesastrology helps explain how the stars make long-lasting love look easy for Mr. and Mrs. Weasley.
A Brief Western Astrology Lesson: Fixed Signs
Molly (Scorpio) and Arthur (Aquarius) are both fixed signs. Fixed signs share modalities or common motivators. If you’re curious, Jake and I explain more about modalities in this post about Ron and Hermione’s compatibility.
Here’s how Jake explains fixed signs:
Individuals with fixed signs are goal-oriented and keep their eye on the prize. Outside circumstances out of their control are the only things that cause a fixed sign to jump to action. When they determine their game plan to solve the problems at hand, they are damn near impossible to steer off-course.
With this in mind, it makes sense that Molly and Arthur’s initial spark of romance quickly inspired the pair to make a lifelong commitment to one another. In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Ginny tells us that her parents married in a rush as a result of Voldemort’s swift rise to power.
‘… people think they might be dead tomorrow, so they’re rushing all sorts of decisions they’d normally take time over. It was the same last time he was powerful, people eloping left, right, and center –’
‘Including you and Dad,’ said Ginny slyly.
‘Yes, well, your father and I were made for each other, what was the point in waiting?’ said Mrs. Weasley.” (HBP 5)
Rushing into commitment might set up the average couple for failure. However, Molly and Arthur’s fixed sign tendencies allowed them to form mutual goals and stick to them. They are driven by keeping their family together and put their family’s bond above everything else.
Molly and Arthur may have not intentionally decided to be role models for social justice during Voldemort’s second rise to power. Yet in true fixed-sign fashion, the couple’s shared goal to help out radiated positive change. They fought Death Eaters alongside their children and risked their safety by offering the Burrow as Order of the Phoenix headquarters. Above all, the Weasleys always supported Harry like he was their son, even when it was dangerous to do so!
Home Is Where the Heart Is
The zodiac wheel is divided into 12 segments called houses. Each house represents a different set of traits for each sign. They fall into alignment with a different sign depending on what your sun sign is. While we don’t know all the details of these characters’ astrological charts, what we do know about Molly and Arthur points to some meaningful connections I’m sure J.K. Rowling planned!
Molly’s first house is in Scorpio. If we count to the fourth house counterclockwise on the diagram below, we see that it falls in Arthur’s first house (or sun sign), Aquarius.
Jake explains the fourth house as “ruling the relationship with family and domestic life.” This connection emphasizes that stability in home life keeps things running in Mr. and Mrs. Weasley’s relationship. While Molly is the nurturing supermom, Arthur upholds his role as the provider. Consistently supporting one another through these roles is the key to success for the Weasleys!
Making It Last
For Aquarians like Arthur, trust is extremely important in a life partner. As Jake explains, “Aquarians are very self-conscious of their eccentricity and naturally odd demeanors. They have to be sure their partner would never judge or criticize them for their unique sensibilities.”
While Molly doesn’t necessarily understand why Arthur loves to toy with toasters and rubber ducks, she doesn’t stop him from expressing himself through his fascination. Jake says, “Scorpios are endlessly compelled by an Aquarian’s completely original mind that operates in unconventional ways.”
Scorpios like Molly are typically very emotionally intelligent. Jake says, “Scorpios are hyper-aware of the habits and urges that compel others to behave the way they do.” While Aquarians like Arthur don’t share this affinity for feelings, they can’t stop trying to figure out how Scorpios feel so much all the time!
Molly’s emotional intelligence makes her an effective disciplinarian in the Weasley household. It is not an easy task when your kids are professional pranksters Fred and George. While he doesn’t have his wife’s talent for sniffing out bad behavior, Arthur backs up his wife when she lays down the law for her children.
While astrology is never set in stone, it seems the stars back up what we already know: Molly and Arthur are truly relationship goals. What’s your favorite Mr. and Mrs. Weasley moment?
