I have sort of an unpopular opinion: I think Hogwarts houses are better than Zodiac signs in pretty much every way imaginable. It isn't that I think astrology charts aren't cool. In fact, I think they look very nice and complicated. I just happen to believe that the Hogwarts Sorting Hat — and the Ilvermorny Sorting Ceremony, for that matter — can better predict who a person is.
I know what you're thinking. Kristian, the Hogwarts Sorting Hat is a fictional, magical artifact. The stars are real! Surely you can't believe in an old, talking hat more than you believe in astrology? Actually, that's exactly what I believe, because I think that, when it comes to Hogwarts and astrology, we are talking about two systems, each about as real as the other. So why shouldn't I choose to subscribe to the one that is, in my humble opinion, a superior system of magical categorization?
To be clear, I am absolutely, 100 percent, not ragging on you if you like astrology. I'm an Earth Snake and a Capricorn with a Life Path Number of Nine, so clearly I have done some dabbling of my own. I just like Hogwarts houses more than I like Zodiac signs, OK? Here's why.
