The weekend just got better!

If you're not following the Harry Potter boss - queen J.K. Rowling herself - you're missing out on a lot. Don't worry though - I'm here to fill you in!

Here's a breakdown of what happened on the twitterverse.

J.K. Rowling is a huge fan of Rugby, and her favorite team needed support.

So basically, she used her magical powers to emotionally blackmail, *ahem* bribe us mere muggles.

But when is Sirius Black's birthday, though? Clue: Not today (or tomorrow).

*Many, many tweets later*

If you head over to her twitter page, obviously there are other muggles not tweeting , simply because they can't betray their team (Jo, please don't make us choose!). However, those of us who tweeted (for reasons other than Sirius) obviously got hit by Rowling's massive Imperius curse.

Well played, Jo, well played.
Well played, Jo, well played.

Fast forward to the game.

Whoop! Bring out the Butterbeers and Firewhiskeys! Scotland wins the cup!

Does anyone fancy a butterbeer?

And Sirius Black's birthday was finally revealed!

So far, that makes him the eldest of the Marauders, being born 1959.

On that note, let's take a look at this (and the next) month's birthday celebrants and some overview of their zodiac signs - Libra and Scorpio respectively.

Minerva McGonagall - October 4th (Libra)

A Libra born on this date is the provider, a devoted member of the family, and will have genuine interest in a child's upbringing.

This describes Professor McGonagall perfectly! Being the provider, or in this case, Deputy Headmistress, she may miss some precious moments, but we know she's doing something to save your butt when you fall!

Filius Flitwick - October 17th (Libra)

Many great things are said about the Libran born on this date, such as being smart, decisive, creative, and practical -- all of which fits the Ravenclaw's Head of House like a glove.

As a parent, though, they are soft and may have a hard time disciplining the children, and may also need to balance being a parent and being a friend.

Molly Weasley - October 30th (Scorpio)

Mrs. Weasley became everyone's mother. Once you're friends with a Weasley, you'll receive a jumper with your first initial on it at Christmas or sweets on your birthday.

People born on this date have a tendency to work all the time, and would typically stay at home to take care of the kids. Mrs. Weasley is cool on the outside, but when you mess with her loved ones, you'll be the receiving end of a powerful hex!

Sirius Black - November 3rd (Scorpio)

Most of us will agree that Sirius was a big drama king. He was also the black sheep of his family by disagreeing with their beliefs and values, and also being the only one sorted into Gryffindor. Based on the description of his birth date which was Autumn 1959, we pretty much deduced he was a Scorpio. And now, his exact birth date reflects so much about his personality.

Scorpios born on November 3rd are described as sarcastic, inventive and precocious. They also have on-again and off-again friendships that they may just rebuild over time (like his with Lupin). They have a sensitive nature and will make protective parents because of their own turbulent past family issues. They are also known to make their own rules.

Yep, fits Padfoot like a leash.

In conclusion, we must always support J.K. Rowling and whatever team she roots for for more HP trivia!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is scheduled to be released on November 16, 2016.
