Before exploring the attributes of the Part of Fortune in the 2nd House, explaining what this Arabic Part is might be needed. The Part of Fortune is an astrological point which can be calculated with the help of the Sun placement, the Moon placement, and the Ascendant. It represents the distance between the Sun and the Moon in the natal chart, added to the Ascendant degree.
Depending on whether the native is born during the day or the night, the Part of Fortune is calculated in a different way. For an individual born during the day, we must subtract the Sun degrees from the Moon degrees, adding it afterward to the Ascendant degree. On the other hand, for a person born in the night, we subtract the Moon degrees from the Sun ones, also adding them to the Ascendant. There are numerous free natal chart generators, where anyone can also easily find out his Part of Fortune placement.
We should, therefore, understand that knowing the exact time of birth is of huge importance for calculating the Part of Fortune, as it is connected with the Ascendant. If we are even half an hour wrong about the time of birth, we may place the Part of Fortune in a different house than where it really is.
The Part of Fortune acts as a quite beneficial spot, empowering the matters of any house it is located. In case that it is conjunct to any planet it will definitely force it to function in a benevolent way, while also can mild down many possible negative traits if it is a “malefic”. A strange pattern that can usually appear is unexpected luck concerning the life area that the house represents. The native may not quite understand why such gifts will come to his life, and that is exactly why this point is called “Part of Fortune”. It indicates the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, the treasures that the native will discover. This point is a sign of prosperity, so examining its placement may help us understand through what type of things we can reach happiness.
As the Part of Fortune is a fixed point that does not change during time, by observing its natal aspects to planets we can clearly understand the nature of the gifts we can receive. Any time that an important planet aspects the Part of Fortune by transit, it opens the gate of luck. Keep in mind that in case the Part of Fortune natally conjuncts any planet it becomes more potent, so you can say that people born with such a conjunction will be luckier than others. The closer is the conjunction, the more powerful is its influence. We can imagine the Part of Fortune as an amplifier, expanding any possible traits of a natal or transiting planet.

The trans-Saturnian planets will usually stall for over two years near the Part of Fortune, making 5 or even more conjunctions through transits as they retrograde. Their effects can even be considered quite long-lasting and even permanent due to their slow pace of movement.
