An aura was the distinctive atmosphere or quality that seems to surround and be generated by a person, thing, or place.
In the 6 December 1926 issue of The New York Ghost, C. Williamsum reported that there was a "sinister" aura around New York, and that master aurologists had been called in from Seoul, Korea to investigate it.
During a Divination class in 1993, Sybill Trelawney told Hermione Granger that she perceived very little aura around her, indicating that she had "very little receptivity to the resonances of the future".
