Part of Fortune

I don't think this is used enough

"Part of Fortune
In astrology, the Part of Fortune, sometimes called Fortuna, is the most popular Arabic Part. Arabic Parts are sensitive points in a chart, and are calculated using specific formulas whereby two planets or points are added together, and a third planet or point is subtracted from that result.

The Part of Fortune is calculated as follows:

For day charts, Ascendant + Moon - Sun

For night charts, Ascendant + Sun - Moon

Note that a chart is considered a day chart when the Sun is above the horizon (occupying any house from house 7 to 12), and a night chart when the Sun is below the horizon (occupying any of the first six houses).

The Part of Fortune represents worldly success, and is associated with the physical body and health as well. It can be indicative of the career or vocation. The condition and placement of the ruling planet of the Part of Fortune (that is, the natural ruler of the sign in which the Part of Fortune is placed) is important to factor into the interpretation of this Arabic part. Worldly success and prosperity are associated with the Part of Fortune, and both its sign and house placement suggests innate abilities and talents--areas of life and qualities that are expressed naturally.

The Part of Fortune lies the same distance in longitude from the Ascendant as the Moon lies from the Sun. Therefore, if for example the Sun is conjunct the Moon in the natal chart, the Part of Fortune will lie close to the Ascendant; and if the Sun and Moon are in opposition in the natal chart, the Part of Fortune will lie close to the Descendant.

It is interesting to note that the Arabic part, the Part of Spirit, is calculated in an opposite manner, and also symbolizes the reverse or opposite theme of spiritual well-being.

If the Part of Fortune is not listed or included in your natal chart wheel, you can calculate the Part of Fortune (and other Arabic Parts) with this online Arabic Part Calculator. It's easy and accurate.

Keys to the Interpretation of the Part of Fortune:
As noted above, the Part of Fortune points to innate talents that set us on a path to worldly success. First look to any planets or points that are tightly conjunct or opposite the Part of Fortune as significators of vocation, career, and natural talents--keys to success.
Second, determine the ruling planet of the sign of the Part of Fortune, and consider that planet as another significator.
Consider the sign and house placement of the Part of Fortune as qualities and areas of life where we possess natural and innate talents or abilities, and that can be considered keys to worldly success and prosperity.Look to any planets or points posited in the same sign as the Part of Fortune, whether or not they are conjunct the point. These will also play a role in our profession."

"Some formulas listed here have both an AM and PM version. The PM version is a reverse of the AM version and when indicated, persons born in the daytime (Sun in 7th - 12th houses) should use the AM formula while persons born in the evening (Sun in 1st - 6th houses) should use the PM formula. Sometimes it's best to try both formulas."

Check the placement of the Sun in the chart, it must be sensibly placed relative to the horizon for the given time of day. For a day birth, the Sun must be above the horizon. From astro.com explanations on POF
We use different formulae for Pars Fortunae for a day birth than for a night birth. You can change this rule with an option in the extended chart selection.

The day formula is: ASC + Moon - Sun
The night formula: ASC + Sun - Moon
Astrologers differ in their views about which formula to use for Pars Fortunae.

“However, in the case of both significations one must keep in mind that no one indication in the chart, not even the Part of Fortune, can be taken by itself as a total indicator of any area of life. For health one must also look at the Ascendant, its ruler, the Moon and its ruler. Also the sixth and eighth houses as indicators of illness and death respectively have strong indications for health. For material prosperity one should also look at the second house, the tenth house, and their rulers.” www.astro.com/astrology/in_fortune_e.htm
“The fortune indicated by this part is not necessarily materialistic or even tangible, though it can be. It depends on the sign and house location of the Part of Fortune. The benefit can be on the physical, intellectual, emotional, and/or spiritual plane of experience. In all cases it is through the cultivation and expression of this point that one will experience harmony and a sense of well-being.” www.astroresources.com/fortune.htm

  • PART OF FORTUNE IN THE HOUSES OF YOUR BIRTH CHART
    ...look deeper into your personal astrology

    "Part of Fortune in 1st House
    Part of Fortune in the First House suggests that your greatest success will come by developing independence and self-sufficiency - meeting life experience with individual initiative and not being dependent on the views of others.

    Part of Fortune in 2nd House
    Suggests that you need to discover what is of real value to you. Money and the things it will buy are of extreme importance, but only insofar as how your possessions reflect true value. You can be extremely lucky with money if it truly reflects a sincere value. Eventually you will develop an ability to see what is personally meaningful and necessary.

    Part of Fortune in 3rd House
    You will have the ability to meet the obstacles found within your immediate environment and deal effectively with them. Developing the ability to think clearly is what will bring your greatest fortune.

    Part of Fortune in 4th House
    The feeling for home and roots will be strong. Happiness will come through building an emotional foundation strong enough to support future growth. This position gives the possibility of finding fulfilment in a broader way through identification with a social, professional or national whole.

    Part of Fortune in 5th House
    Success usually comes from the growth of creative abilities, or in a will to power. Great joy comes from being deeply and intensely involved in all that you are able to create. With this placing you must be very discriminating with your choice of friends.

    Part of Fortune in 6th House
    Happiness may be found in work, self-improvement and self-discipline. You will be at your best during times of crisis because of an ability to take the correct action. Great joy will come from developing your natural abilities and using them constructively in whatever field of work or service you may be involved.

    Part of Fortune in 7th House
    Happiness is found in important human relationships that give a sense of direction and meaning to life. With this placing, luck and good fortune usually come through other people.

    Part of Fortune in 8th House
    Happiness will come through your ability for financial management, especially other people s financial affairs - such as banking, contractual agreements, business, marriage, etc. Luck and good fortune will be bestowed on you by other people.

    Part of Fortune in 12th House
    You may find happiness in accepting and thus transforming or dissolving your Karma to complete a cycle of experience. The achievements of this cycle may become the seeds or foundation of a new cycle. In an 'occult' sense, you may even find it possible to reach 'personal immortality', so that what you are as a formed mind is able to survive the disintegration of the physical body. You will find great happiness and joy through periods of solitude for meditation and attunement with your inner self.” www.horoscopeswithin.com/parto...es.php
    • "Part of Fortune and Planets

      The last few Advanced Astrology columns have been devoted to the Part of Fortune, or Pars Fortuna, as an outgrowth of the Lunation Cycle. The Part of Fortune was described in its relation to the house placements and sign placements. Just as with any other zodiacal sensitive point, the Part of Fortune can also be defined in its relationship to other zodiacal elements, such as the planets.
      Any planet in conjunction with the Part of Fortune will yield an increase in the potency of that planet. This is the aspect most clearly seen. A planet in opposition to the Part of Fortune will yield a form of detachment in the use of that planet. A planet in square to the Part of Fortune sometimes indicates that the planet is involved in the drive to achieve the happiness promised by the Part of Fortune. Trines to the Part of Fortune indicate that the way is made easy for the person to find his happiness and success. Remember, please, that it takes the whole chart to tell you the potentials in a person's life. Let us look at some examples of the meanings of a planet as it makes major aspects with the attributes of the Part of Fortune.

      Sun and the Part of Fortune: When you see a horoscope where the Sun is conjunct the Part of Fortune, remember how we arrive at the Part of Fortune. The Ascendant and the Moon and the Sun itself combine to show us where the avenue to happiness, success, and sheer joy is located. We look to the house, we look to the sign, and now we look to the planet to tell us more. When the Sun is conjunct the Part of Fortune, the person can shine with his whole being in response to the solar illumination.

      Moon and the Part of Fortune: If a person is born at sunrise, the Part of Fortune will be conjunct the Moon; if he is born at sunset, the Part of
      Fortune will be opposite the Moon. Remember how we arrive at the Part of Fortune! The emotional nature, nurturing nature, security themes, or public life will be an avenue for achieving Part of Fortune happiness and success.

      Mercury and the Part of Fortune: If Mercury is with the Part of Fortune, this person will use his mental faculties and an intellectual approach in finding his happiness and success. He will also find it extremely easy to communicate, either in speech or writing.

      Venus and the Part of Fortune: If Venus is with the Part of Fortune, the potency of Venus will be enhanced, and the person will have tremendous personal charm. He will probably also be good looking. Harmony and balance come easily to him.

      Mars and the Part of Fortune: If Mars is with the Part of Fortune, the potency of Mars will be enhanced in its more positive forms. The person with this conjunction will exhibit assertive and pioneering qualities instinctively. He will be able to focus on one endeavor at a time, and work at it by himself to completion.

      Jupiter and the Part of Fortune: If Jupiter is conjunct the Part of Fortune, the potency of Jupiter will be enhanced in all of its positive forms. The person with this conjunction will be naturally optimistic, certain that all situations will turn out fine, and in general happy with every day as they take him closer to success and wealth and joy.

      Saturn and the Part of Fortune: If Saturn is conjunct the Part of Fortune, the potency of the positive attributes of Saturn will be enhanced.
      The person with this conjunction will have a serious approach to life, with a sense of determination to fulfill his destiny, and a sense of responsibility to the world. Both Benjamin Franklin and George Washington had this conjunction.

      Uranus and the Part of Fortune: If Uranus is conjunct the Part of Fortune, the potency of Uranus will be enhanced. The person with this conjunction will be innovative, original, unique, and inventive. This conjunction might even indicate a potential for learning Astrology. This person would also have gifts and talents when involved with scientific technology and computers.

      Neptune and the Part of Fortune: If Neptune is conjunct the Part of Fortune, happiness and success will come easily to the person who uses Neptune in positive ways. Positive outlets are those of metaphysics, spiritual work, the arts, music, marine life, underwater exploration, and space exploration.

      Pluto and the Part of Fortune: If Pluto is conjunct the Part of Fortune, the potency of Pluto will be enhanced in its positive forms. The person with this conjunction can find happiness and success in all forms of detective work, ranging from crime solving to investigating the atom, from studying genetic engineering to manipulating DNA to cure cancer and AIDS. He can study the mysteries of life in order to transform and improve life on Earth for all mankind."

While the sign placement of the Part of Fortune, as described above, is important, it is my personal opinion that the house placement of the Part of Fortune, as described in previous articles, is far more important.”

              • There is a possibility that the Part of Fortune will make an aspect to one of the planets in the natal horoscope. Traditionally, conjunctions and oppositions carry the most significance; squares have lesser significance, and trines even less so. The significance is in the nature of the planet aspected, and may be discussed in a future article.

                In this and future articles, we will examine the significance of the location of the Part of Fortune by house, by sign, and by planetary aspect. Let us begin by examining the significance of the position of the Part of Fortune as it relates to the houses.

                PART OF FORTUNE IN THE FIRST HOUSE:
                The person with his Part of Fortune in the first house is a person who was born at or just after a New Moon, and, as such, carries the characteristics of a New Moon personality. He has a strongly individual way of meeting life's situations. If he places himself and his unique achievements out where they will be seen, he should have great success and happiness. This is a person who wants to stand out in his own way. He has the charm and human magnetism of the sign on the Ascendant.

                PART OF FORTUNE IN THE SECOND HOUSE:
                The person with his Part of Fortune in the second house has the drive, the patience, and the endurance and willingness to use his personal assets, talents, abilities, and efforts to strive for financial success. He feels happy when he draws money, possessions, collections, to himself, and he should not feel guilty about doing so. He needs these things with which to express himself. The Part of Fortune in the second house is good for money. The person has a concern for financial security but he need never worry about it.

                PART OF FORTUNE IN THE THIRD HOUSE:
                The person with his Part of Fortune in the third house has a need to communicate and a need to relate to his surroundings, community, family. The third house Part of Fortune gives him the ability to fill both of these needs. Often we find this placement in the charts of teachers, writers, speakers, newspaper reporters, and others who express themselves well with words.

                The Part of Fortune's meaning, just like a planet's meaning, is sensitive to house placement, as just shown. It is also sensitive, just like a planet is, to the sign of the zodiac in which it finds itself. In a future article, as we continue our investigation of the meanings of the Part of Fortune, we will look at the Part of Fortune in each of the twelve signs.

                Part of Fortune and Planets
                The last few Advanced Astrology columns have been devoted to the Part of Fortune, or Pars Fortuna, as an outgrowth of the Lunation Cycle. The Part of Fortune was described in its relation to the house placements and sign placements. Just as with any other zodiacal sensitive point, the Part of Fortune can also be defined in its relationship to other zodiacal elements, such as the planets.

                Any planet in conjunction with the Part of Fortune will yield an increase in the potency of that planet. This is the aspect most clearly seen. A planet in opposition to the Part of Fortune will yield a form of detachment in the use of that planet. A planet in square to the Part of Fortune sometimes indicates that the planet is involved in the drive to achieve the happiness promised by the Part of Fortune. Trines to the Part of Fortune indicate that the way is made easy for the person to find his happiness and success. Remember, please, that it takes the whole chart to tell you the potentials in a person's life. Let us look at some examples of the meanings of a planet as it makes major aspects with the attributes of the Part of Fortune.

                Sun and the Part of Fortune: When you see a horoscope where the Sun is conjunct the Part of Fortune, remember how we arrive at the Part of Fortune. The Ascendant and the Moon and the Sun itself combine to show us where the avenue to happiness, success, and sheer joy is located. We look to the house, we look to the sign, and now we look to the planet to tell us more. When the Sun is conjunct the Part of Fortune, the person can shine with his whole being in response to the solar illumination.

                Moon and the Part of Fortune: If a person is born at sunrise, the Part of Fortune will be conjunct the Moon; if he is born at sunset, the Part of Fortune will be opposite the Moon. Remember how we arrive at the Part of Fortune! The emotional nature, nurturing nature, security themes, or public life will be an avenue for achieving Part of Fortune happiness and success.

                Mercury and the Part of Fortune: If Mercury is with the Part of Fortune, this person will use his mental faculties and an intellectual approach in finding his happiness and success. He will also find it extremely easy to communicate, either in speech or writing.

                Venus and the Part of Fortune: If Venus is with the Part of Fortune, the potency of Venus will be enhanced, and the person will have tremendous personal charm. He will probably also be good looking. Harmony and balance come easily to him.

                Mars and the Part of Fortune: If Mars is with the Part of Fortune, the potency of Mars will be enhanced in its more positive forms. The person with this conjunction will exhibit assertive and pioneering qualities instinctively. He will be able to focus on one endeavor at a time, and work at it by himself to completion.

                Jupiter and the Part of Fortune: If Jupiter is conjunct the Part of Fortune, the potency of Jupiter will be enhanced in all of its positive forms. The person with this conjunction will be naturally optimistic, certain that all situations will turn out fine, and in general happy with every day as they take him closer to success and wealth and joy.

                Saturn and the Part of Fortune: If Saturn is conjunct the Part of Fortune, the potency of the positive attributes of Saturn will be enhanced. The person with this conjunction will have a serious approach to life, with a sense of determination to fulfill his destiny, and a sense of responsibility to the world. Both Benjamin Franklin and George Washington had this conjunction.

                Uranus and the Part of Fortune: If Uranus is conjunct the Part of Fortune, the potency of Uranus will be enhanced. The person with this conjunction will be innovative, original, unique, and inventive. This conjunction might even indicate a potential for learning Astrology. This person would also have gifts and talents when involved with scientific technology and computers.

                Neptune and the Part of Fortune: If Neptune is conjunct the Part of Fortune, happiness and success will come easily to the person who uses Neptune in positive ways. Positive outlets are those of metaphysics, spiritual work, the arts, music, marine life, underwater exploration, and space exploration.

                Pluto and the Part of Fortune: If Pluto is conjunct the Part of Fortune, the potency of Pluto will be enhanced in its positive forms. The person with this conjunction can find happiness and success in all forms of detective work, ranging from crime solving to investigating the atom, from studying genetic engineering to manipulating DNA to cure cancer and AIDS. He can study the mysteries of life in order to transform and improve life on Earth for all mankind.

                Just as planets in one's natal horoscope interact with the horoscopes of others (his Jupiter on my Moon, etc.) so does the Part of Fortune. Next week, we will conclude our study of the Part of Fortune in the natal horoscope with an investigation of this relationship.

                Part of Fortune in the Signs
                In every beginners' class that I teach, I repeat and repeat, "The planets have the POWER; the signs tell HOW; the houses tell WHERE." These phrases mean that the planet you are investigating tells what kind of activity will take place; the sign describes the zodiacal style which characterizes the activity; the house describes the area of life in which this activity will take place.

                In our investigation of the Part of Fortune so far, we have seen that the Part of Fortune is an outgrowth of the Lunation Cycle in relation to the Ascendant of the horoscope. The Part of Fortune, or Pars Fortuna, is therefore a three-dimensional Sensitive Point in the horoscope, but it is not a planet. It is a place where we can find happiness, experience gain, and feel fortunate, in accordance with the house and sign it inhabits. We have already seen the manifestation of the Part of Fortune in each of the twelve houses. Now let us look at the manifestation of the Part of Fortune in each of the twelve signs.

                Part of Fortune in ARIES: The characteristic style of the sign Aries is action: boldly, confidently, self-assertively. Aries exercises initiative. The person with the Part of Fortune in Aries will achieve happiness and success through innovative and creative efforts.

                Part of Fortune in TAURUS: The characteristic style of the sign Taurus is productivity, with a need to perceive tangible results. The person with the Part of Fortune in Taurus is cautious and practical in his pursuit of happiness and success.

                Part of Fortune in GEMINI: The characteristic style of Gemini is to reach out and communicate. The person with the Part of Fortune in Gemini uses his communication skills and his ability to learn as he pursues happiness and success.

                Part of Fortune in CANCER: The characteristic style of Cancer is warm, nurturing, and maternal. The person with the Part of Fortune in Cancer seeks security in the domestic circle. For him, security is essential for happiness and success.

                Part of Fortune in LEO: The characteristic style of Leo is showy, grand, and generous. Leo has self-assurance and leadership ability. Leo acts self-expressively, dramatically, and creatively. The person with the Part of Fortune in Leo needs recognition from others to feel happy and successful.

                Part of Fortune in VIRGO: The characteristic style of Virgo is intellectual, analytical, conservative, and always seeking perfection. The person with the Part of Fortune in Virgo uses his mastery of details to attain happiness and success.

                Part of Fortune in LIBRA: The characteristic style of Libra is one of beauty, balance, fairness, and justice. The person with the Part of Fortune in Libra seeks his happiness and success in relationships such as marriage and partnership.

                Part of Fortune in SCORPIO: The characteristic style of Scorpio is secretive and intense. For the person with the Part of Fortune in Scorpio, no plan or plot is too complex to use in his pursuit of happiness and success.

                Part of Fortune in SAGITTARIUS: The characteristic style of Sagittarius is adventurous and expansive. The person with the Part of Fortune in Sagittarius will achieve happiness and success by reaching out to vaster mental and philosophical horizons.

                Part of Fortune in CAPRICORN: The characteristic style of Capricorn is serious and hard-working. The person with the Part of Fortune in Capricorn will find his happiness and success through hard work, determination, and achievement of goals.

                Part of Fortune in PISCES: The characteristic style of Pisces is spiritual and mystical. The person with the Part of Fortune in Pisces will find happiness and success by concentrating on higher ideals.

                We all know that there are positive and negative attributes to every planet and sign. (Determined is positive; obstinate is negative, etc.) The Part of Fortune, located in a sign, mitigates the negative attributes inherent in that sign. While the sign placement of the Part of Fortune, as described above, is important, it is my personal opinion that the house placement of the Part of Fortune, as described in previous articles, is far more important.
