In astrology, the Arabian/Arabic parts or lots are constructed points based on mathematical calculations of three horoscopic entities such as planets or angles.
The distance between two of the points is added to the position of the third (very often the ascendant) to derive the location of the lot.
The Part of Fortune is one of the most well-known Arabic Parts or Lots and is calculated using the positions of the Sun, Moon, and Ascendant in your chart.
Therefore, it is important to note that it is a calculated position, not an actual planet, asteroid, or fixed star.
It indicates what we need to do in order to bring opportunities of wealth and abundance and where we will find our greatest joy and happiness.
Our Part of Fortune placement shows us:
• Where we can best, or most easily, find prosperity
• What we need to do in order to bring opportunities of wealth and abundance
• Where we will find our greatest joy and happiness
• Our innate abilities and talents–areas of life and qualities that are expressed naturally.
The opposite sign and house to your part of Fortune placement indicates what could prevent you from harnessing your part of fortune.
