The Part of Fortune in Astrology
Arabic parts are not existing celestial bodies. They are mathematical points calculated based on the degree and sign of various components in the natal chart. There are many Arabic parts, but the Part of Fortune is perhaps the most frequently used.
What is the Part of Fortune all about in astrology?
Calculated based on the ascendant, the Sun, and the Moon, the Part of Fortune is very personal. It can be seen as a blend between the ascendant and the luminaries, three very important parts of the natal chart. The Sun is your ego and conscious self, the Moon is your soul and emotions, and the ascendant describes your identity and the filter through which you observe the world (and the world you). Because of this, the Part of Fortune is basically the essence of your being.
In the natal chart, this point represents a point of harmony and ease. It is associated with happiness, joy, well-being (mental, emotional, spiritual, physical, material), worldly success, health. It is somewhat similar to Jupiter, but at the same time, it represents a good fortune you create for yourself, while Jupiter’s gifts come from an external source out of your control.
To calculate the Part of Fortune, you have to know your exact birth time (the degree of the ascendant changes one degree every four minutes). The formula is different depending on if you have a day chart or a night chart. In a day chart, the Sun is located in the upper hemisphere of the chart in houses 7-12, while in a night chart it is houses 1-6.
The Part of Fortune in a day chart is calculated as the ascendant + the Moon – the Sun. For a night chart, you calculate it as the ascendant + the Sun – the Moon.
