Part of Fortune in the Signs
In astrology, the Part of Fortune is easily the most popular Arabic Part. Arabic Parts are sensitive points in a chart and are calculated using specific formulas. They are not planets.
The Part of Fortune points to innate talents that set us on a path to worldly success. It can be a key to working through issues related to the particular Moon phase into which we were born.
Look to 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. These can be considered keys to worldly success and prosperity. The ruler of the Part’s sign can hold further clues, and so can the Part of Fortune’s aspects to other planets and points in the chart.
