The Part of Fortune is one of the Arabic Parts, also known as the Part of the Moon. It was also known as the “pars fortunae.”
You can calculate your Part of Fortune sign with this calculator. See below for some important points to consider when interpreting your Part of Fortune.
The Part of Fortune signifies the overall status of your life in terms of health, wealth, and reputation. A “good” Part of Fortune will mean a generally good life, strong body, decent finances, positive honors or recognition. A good Part of Fortune is good for business.
What is a “good” Part of Fortune? The best condition for the Part of Fortune would be for it to have no negative influences upon it. This is rather rare. So, for most of us, it’s best for the Part of Fortune to have as little as these negative influences as possible. Negative influences are listed below.
Negative influences on the Part of Fortune
- If the Sun or Moon is in detriment or fall, it’s considered a negative effect on the Part of Fortune.
- If the Part of Fortune’s dispositor is in detriment or fall, it’s also a negative effect.
The dispositor is the planet which rules the sign of your Part of Fortune. To find the dispositor, calculate your Part of Fortune sign, then find that sign in this table. Once you find the dispositor, check if that planet is in detriment or fall.
- Look at all aspects to the Part of Fortune while considering the following points.
- Is the aspecting planet a benefic or malefic? Aspects from benefic planets to the Part of Fortune are considered good. Aspects from malefic planets are considered bad.
What zodiac sign is the aspecting planet in? Can the planet express itself easily in this sign?
For example, an aspect from Jupiter sounds good because Jupiter is a benefic, and it expands or grows things. However, if Jupiter is in Virgo, it’s ability to expand is hampered. Jupiter cannot easily express itself in Virgo. Jupiter in Virgo can be rather stingy with its blessings.
Another example would be Venus in Scorpio. While Venus is a benefic planet, it’s attraction factor does not flow smoothly in the sign of Scorpio. So an aspect from Venus in Scorpio is not as “good” as an aspect from, say, Venus in Libra.
Another example with the opposite effect would be Mars in Capricorn. Although Mars is a malefic planet, it behaves sort of decently in the sign of Capricorn. So, an aspect from Mars in Capricorn wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.
So, consider the sign of the aspecting planet.
How strong is the aspecting planet? This refers to the strength of the effect that this aspecting planet will have upon the Part of Fortune. To measure the planet’s strength, look at the house the aspecting planet is in.
If the aspecting planet is in house one, four, seven, or ten, its aspect has a strong effect.
If it’s in house two, five, eight, or eleven, the effect is less strong.
If it’s in house three, six, nine, or twelve, the effect is so weak that it may be barely noticeable. So, if the Part of Fortune has as aspect from a malefic planet, it would be better for that aspecting planet to be in one of these houses since that would minimize any negative effect.
- If either the Sun or Moon makes a negative aspect, such as a square or opposition, to the Part of Fortune, from any house, it greatly hurts the Part of Fortune.
