PART OF FORTUNE:
by ARLENE A. KRAMER
In a previous article, I described the most familiar of the Arabic
Parts, the Part of Fortune or Pars Fortuna, as the area in the natal
horoscope where the owner of the horoscope feels that "good fortune"
is smiling upon him. I indicated that the Part of Fortune, when calculated,
shows up as a zodiacal placement (degree/sign/minutes.) It therefore
is in a particular house, depending upon its zodiacal position.
I described the significance of the Part of Fortune when it is located
in houses one through five. Here is a continuation of the discussion
of the meaning of the Part of Fortune in each of the remaining houses
of the natal horoscope.
PART OF FORTUNE IN THE SIXTH HOUSE:
The person with his Part of Fortune in the sixth house was born just
prior to a Full Moon. He is interested in self-improvement and self-discipline
so that he can function with such efficiency that he does not have
to pay attention to the daily details of life. His mind is on bigger
things. Here is a person who seeks the injustices in life so that
he may serve to improve others' lives. He can serve people who are
confined to hospitals or prisons, or fight for animals' rights, or
lead a group of workers in a labor union. This is Virgo's house. Think
of doctor, nurse, veterinarian, soldier, sailor.
PART OF FORTUNE IN THE SEVENTH HOUSE:
The person with his Part of Fortune in the seventh house was born
soon after a Full Moon. He is a person who is so idealistic that he
wants to see only the best in everything, in every person, in every
situation, even in every problem. He is looking for quality in all
his relationships because he is really seeking personal illumination.
He would like to know his purpose in life. His personality shines
through his relationships and partnerships. The Part of Fortune in
the seventh house might lead to partnerships with wealthy people.
PART OF FORTUNE IN THE EIGHTH HOUSE:
The person with his Part of Fortune in the eighth house is like a
walking testimonial to eighth house matters if he uses this placement
correctly. He is interested in the occult, has good powers of regeneration
and rejuvenation, and can be an expert at investigation, research,
detective work. He can keep a secret so well that he is like an international
diplomat, and he can indeed earn a living this way. This person can
also make a living based on the talents and abilities of others, as
a theatrical agent or manage other people's money. This person is
usually very attractive, due to personal magnetism.
PART OF FORTUNE IN THE NINTH HOUSE:
The person with his Part of Fortune in the ninth house usually finds
expression through travel, philosophy, higher education, philosophical
thought, spirituality, or publishing. He may find his fortunes far
from home. This person can profit through and from people at a distance.
His studies bring insights to him which he uses to help other people.
This is a person who can be a natural clairvoyant as well. Most of
this person's labors are mental. This is a person who is always broadening
his vistas and expanding his education
PART OF FORTUNE IN THE TENTH HOUSE:
The person with his Part of Fortune in the tenth house knows, deep
down, that he must fulfill his role in society. He chooses a field
where he can be a Professional Person. This person needs a place in
the outside world, where his status and position is high and his name
is associated with the field that he is in. This is the house of recognition
and public standing, of career and ambition, of success and responsibility.
Remember, this is Capricorn's house, so the person whose Part of Fortune
is here is not afraid of hard work and effort if there is a goal to
PART OF FORTUNE IN THE ELEVENTH HOUSE:
The person with his Part of Fortune in the eleventh house is usually
way ahead of the time in which he lives when it comes to his mentality,
his dreams, hopes, goals, and his view of the world. This is a person
who thinks in terms of Brotherhood, altruistic unity, Humanitarian
values. He wants to do things that benefit society as a whole. This
is why he sometimes sees himself as a reformer of sorts, improving
social, cultural, or spiritual values in those around him. He wants
better conditions for his community as well as for humanity.
PART OF FORTUNE IN THE TWELFTH HOUSE:
The person with his Part of Fortune in the twelfth house has a unique
opportunity to transform or dissolve his own Karma. This is a person
who has mediumistic talents and the gift of prophecy. His dreams often
give him answers. His flair for spirituality, mysticism, illusion,
and fantasy can be productive in film, television, and works of fiction.
Though he may not know it when it happens, his enemies will frequently
change their attitude from hostility to neutrality, and sometimes
even to benevolence. He is generally unaware of his good fortune.
The person with his Part of Fortune in the twelfth house is treated
well by health-care professionals.
The Part of Fortune's meaning, just like a planet's meaning, is sensitive
to house placement, as just shown. It is also sensitive, just like
a planet is, to the sign of the zodiac in which it finds itself. In
a future article, as we continue our investigation of the meanings
of the Part of Fortune, we will look at the Part of Fortune in each
of the twelve signs.
