Ravenclaw Aries These Ravenclaws will have lightning-fast mental reflexes. Aries is an intellectual sign, but it is also an impatient sign; Ravenclaws who were born under this sign are likely to tolerate no dull wits or stupidity, whether they see this lack of mental competence in themselves (in which case they will berate themselves for not understanding, or give up quickly in frustration without really trying to overcome their difficulty in learning) or in others (in which case they will lash out at the offender with acidic comments and haughty, cutting looks). These Ravenclaws will want to be at the head of the class, dominating other students in their chosen intellectual field, and may be almost as competitive as Slytherins. However, the true aim of every Ravenclaw is knowledge, knowledge, and more knowledge. While a Slytherin might see losing a magical duel or being bested by another student in a DADA class as humiliating, the Ravenclaw will probably just take delight in competition for its own sake, and see defeat as a learning experience.
The Disclaimer: I'm not Mandy Brocklehurst, Kristin Bell, or even Veronica Mars (but sometimes I wish I looked like that). This is a role-play journal being used for thedarkertruth. I also play millanmac there. My actual LJ is toastedlembas. Obviously, I own nothing related to Harry Potter or Veronica Mars. If I did, I would be rich, and my account would be Paid instead of Plus.
