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.

“she reminds us that when we are at our lowest the only way is up, by the same token, she also reminds us to enjoy the peaks in our lives because summer is not Eternal” – Unknown

Our Asteroid Fortuna placement shows us:

• How we view good luck and fate in general

• Our approach to luck

• The sign Fortuna is the personality of our luck so to speak

• The house Fortuna is in may where we may experience the highs and lows of abundance
