* When Harry is attacked by [[spoiler:Quirrel/Voldemort]] in the Forbidden Forest and is rescued by Firenze, the other centaurs object, citing "the stars." Even Firenze himself mentions to Harry that he hopes that he and his fellow centaurs have been misreading them. Considering the fact that centaurs are particularly gifted at astrology, they're probably seeing [[spoiler:Harry getting killed by Voldemort in the Forbidden Forest at the end of [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Book 7]], and don't want to interfere with destiny]].
** They also say 'Mars is bright tonight' several times. [[spoiler:Mars is the god of war and bloodshed, and the planet symbolic of that. They're predicting the war that starts later on in the series.]]
*** Although this could also be a more direct reference to the fact that [[spoiler:Quirrel/Voldemort is about to kill a unicorn and drink its blood for its life-sustaining properties. Hagrid asks the centaurs several times if they've noticed anything strange in the forest that night, or whether they have any idea where the injured unicorn could be, to which they reply with "Mars is bright tonight". While they may certainly be referencing the later war, it is also possible that they were in fact trying to answer Hagrid's question, and he just wasn't able to understand it.]]
