The Part of Fortune: Good Luck Charm

Some astrologers put the Part of Fortune in their charts. There are scores of “parts” from medieval and modern astrology which are derived from formulas combining the Zodiac positions of various planets and points. The Part of Fortune is calculated by adding the Moon’s position to that of the Ascendant and subtracting the Sun. The resulting point will be the same distance from the Ascendant as the Moon is from the Sun. So if you were born at the New Moon (Sun and Moon together) the Part would be right on the Ascendant. If you were born during the Full Moon (Sun and Moon opposite one another) the Part of Fortune will be opposite the Ascendant. The Part is considered to be a point of good luck by those who use it in their charts. Many astrologers, though, do not include the Part in their work.
