Something bizarre happened to me yesterday.
There’s a point in everyone’s natal chart called the Part of Fortune. When you’re calculating a chart on a site like astro.com, if the point doesn’t show up, there’s usually an option to click on to show it (just like there is with many of the asteroids).
Since I first had my own chart calculated, I’ve known about the Part of Fortune. However, what I’ve read about it since has varied widely. Some astrologers have written that it indicates where you’ll find success. Others connect it to luck. Just when I was looking around for an image to illustrate this post, I read half-a-dozen more explanations of it (I will mention that Jessica Davidson’s character-based interpretations are quite perceptive — click the link above to read more).
I honestly don’t know what to believe, so I don’t really pay attention to the point because what I do is most character analysis; the astrology writers that I respect the most have taught me that the point is best used in predictive astrology. For that reason, when I do pay attention to the Part of Fortune, it is because a planet is crossing over it.
My Part of Fortune is at 29°48″ Aries. Yesterday, I was at the gym at that time preparing to teach a class. I was looking at my watch because I knew that the sun was sitting atop the point, and I was waiting to see if anything profound happened. Something weird did happen, but it wasn’t what I expected.
So, I still don’t know what to think about the Part of Fortune. I do know that Uranus will pass over the point in the middle of May. It also will make a retrograde cross over the point in November, and a final pass in March next year. I’m going to pay attention to those days and consider what they have to teach me about the weird/fortunate/completely unexpected moment I experienced yesterday.
That’s all I can say for now. I’m superstitious and I don’t want to jinx it.
