PART OF FORTUNE:
PART ONE


by ARLENE A. KRAMER

Mankind's fascination with the Sun-Moon-Earth relationship has extended beyond the basic waxing and waning of the Moon (the Lunation Cycle.) For thousands of years, this relationship has been expanded by Astrologers to include the Fixed Stars, the zodiacal constellations, house systems, and the angles (Midheaven, Ascendant, Vertex.) Many of these expanded relationships have been codified and named the Arabic Parts. Perhaps the most familiar of these Arabic Parts, and possibly the most useful, is the Part of Fortune or Pars Fortuna.

Traditionally, the Part of Fortune indicates the area in the horoscope where the owner of the horoscope feels that "good fortune" is smiling on him. To some, "good fortune" means that money abounds, to others it means public recognition and acclaim, and to others, it means love, good health, and good luck. The clue, according to tradition, to the personal interpretation of "good fortune" lies in the sign and house placement of the Part of Fortune.

The Part of Fortune will be the exact amount of degrees and minutes distant from the Ascendant as the Moon is distant from the Sun. So, for example, if the Moon is 73 degrees after the Sun (within the second eighth of the Lunation Cycle), the Part of Fortune will be 73 degrees after the Ascendant. The same example, in zodiacal terms could have the Ascendant at 10 degrees Taurus, the Sun at 00 Gemini, and the Moon at 13 degrees Leo. (This is a distance of the 73 degrees mentioned above.) Because the Ascendant is 10 degrees Taurus, the Part of Fortune is 73 degrees later, or 23 degrees of Cancer. The sign of the Part of Fortune is dependent on the sign and degree of the Ascendant, leading to a wide variety of possible signs for the Part of Fortune on any given day.

The house position of the Part of Fortune, however, depends upon the distance that the Moon is from the Sun. For example, in a natal chart cast for right after the New Moon, the Part of Fortune will be in the First house, because the Moon has not yet moved far from the Sun, and the Part of Fortune is close to the Ascendant. As another example of house position, consider the hours after a Full Moon, when the Part of Fortune is in the seventh house because the Moon is located a little bit more than 180 degrees from the Sun.

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. He is happiest when he can convey his ideas and feelings to others.

PART OF FORTUNE IN THE FOURTH HOUSE:

The person with his Part of Fortune in the fourth house needs a sense of home, roots, security, and stability to be totally happy. This does not mean that he needs a house to call his home. His home can be an ideal, a person, an atmosphere that he can feel is solid and solidly behind him. He can then go on to find fulfillment in a tenth house professional identification. These people are usually very patriotic with strong feelings for home, homeland, and parents. The Part of Fortune in the fourth house usually means that the person will be wealthy in the last third of his life.

PART OF FORTUNE IN THE FIFTH HOUSE:

The person with his Part of Fortune in the fifth house has creative and emotional energies overflowing. He needs to express these, and finds great satisfaction in creative or artistic activity.

He is attracted to adventurous enterprises. He has luck with speculations and with children. This person has strong abilities in creative fields of art, drama, theater, music, literature, and invention. He needs to pour himself into what he is doing, and he needs appreciation and applause.
