Astrology: To Ovecome Bad Fortune
Fortune has come to mean money and wealth; yet it also refers to chance or luck. The word is also synonymous with destiny or fate. All these ideas come together in a point in your horoscope known as the Part of Fortune, which contains some clues about your quality and share of fortune, be that chance or capital. One of astrology’s first authorities Ptolemy suggested that the Part of Fortune was primary to the circumstances that regulate the ‘fortune of wealth’. While he only endorsed one formula for its calculation, other Hellenistic and Medieval astrologers suggested alternate calculations depending on whether you were born during the day or night. Differentiating day and night had significance to ancient astrologers who made planetary distinctions dependent on a nocturnal or diurnal birth.
Following the lead of modern astrologers tended to use a fixed formula for the Part of Fortune. Since this formula is the same one used for day births, it will only be those born at night whose Part of Fortune shifts when reverting to the more traditional method. While the Part of Fortune in modern practice is seen as a mathematically-derived point in the horoscope, in ancient times it was generally perceived as a geometrical concept. Rather than using a formula, they would measure the distance clockwise from the Sun to the Moon and then take the same measure clockwise from the Ascendant to find the Part of Fortune.
Mathematically this is the formula Ascendant + Moon – Sun. For a diurnal birth the ancients would measure the distance clockwise from the Moon to the Sun and then measure this distance clockwise from the Ascendant. Mathematically this is the formula Ascendant + Sun – Moon. Like the Sun, fortunes of the day world rose. But the fortunes of the night world began to rise with the Moon. Perhaps as the day world became more triumphant it was easy to forget the fortunes of the night.
