Fortuna is the Roman goddess of fortune and of fate, and she is asteroid number 19 in the celestial chart.
Fortuna in mythology determined if a person’s luck would be good or bad, or a bit of both, since Fortuna is the one who spins the wheel of fortune.
Fortuna is the symbol of the old maxim, “what goes around comes around” and she shows us how we can be up one moment and down the next.
Our Fortuna placement also shows us how we view good luck and fate in general and perhaps where we may experience the highs and lows of abundance.
