The Part of Fortune is a very foretelling marker within your personal astrological chart. We sometimes focus so much attention on our Sun sign and planets that we completely overlook this ancient part that signifies where we feel most rooted and fortunate in life. It is our personal “jackpot” and not necessarily of a material nature but more so of the karmic spiritual energies that sustain us even through the toughest of times.
The Part of Fortune symbolizes the place in the horoscope where the Sun, Moon, and Ascendant (rising sign) are in harmony. The Sun is our vitality, the nature through which the spirit expresses itself in the physical world and the ascendant is the filter for the Sun until the age of 30 or in a sense, the age when we finally feel confident enough to express our true self.
Our Moon sign is indicative of how we emotionalize things, and the habits that we form along the way of maturing spiritually. The Moon represents where we feel at home and our roots, especially those connecting us with our inner child. The Part of Fortune represents where we come together in a blending of Solar, Ascendant, and Lunar energies to experience an integration of our complete being. Honestly, when we feel connected physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually that is when we are the most “FORTUNATE.”
The Part of Fortune is sensitive to transits and when you take into account the sign and house of the Part of Fortune you can see the general flavor and area of life where these energies manifest. It is particularly strong if it is in the First or Tenth house, or if it forms a conjunction, sextile or trine to either Venus or Jupiter, the “good guy” planets. It is also beneficial if it is conjunct the North Node. The Part of Fortune is noted in the astrological chart by the symbol of an “X” within a circle. It is where you are “kissed” by fate.
