Before exploring the attributes of the Part of Fortune in the 7th 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.
When a natal chart contains the Part of Fortune in the 7th house, great joy can come through marriage and business partnerships. The Fortuna can bless her luck in finding the correct people to create a stable union. In addition, such a native will have pleasant outcomes in issues connected with the court and trials. Finally, the Part of Fortune in the 7th house can influence the native’s open enemies and make them friends. As the 7th house is ruling diplomacy, enemies can change their opinion about the individual and join his side.
A Part of Fortune in the 7th house can be very useful for entrepreneurship, bringing success in business. The native may be lucky enough to discover the correct people to work with: sincere, fair and harmonious.
As the 7th house rules the native’s second child, in case he will have one it will be very lucky. This child is blessed to bring happiness to the chart owner. Of course, the Part of Fortune itself is by no means an indicator of having children. One must look other parameters to figure out such possibilities. The Part of Fortune will just enhance whatever the other planets bring in this life area. In case that the 7th house contains a planet in conjunction with the Part of Fortune, the chances of having a child are generally increased, except if that planet is Saturn.
This is a rather good placement for the Part of Fortune, especially for people that are interested in creating a family. The only thing we should be careful with the Part of Fortune in the 7th house is an overdependence on our luck. It is a rather wrong approach to believe that if we are generally lucky, we will always be lucky. The devil is hiding in the details, and thus such a native should not form unions with all the people that enter his life. Every rule has its exception.
Watch out for transits of slow moving planets to the Part of Fortune, especially if they are conjunctions. 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. They will definitely activate the Part of Fortune, and depending on its natal aspects to natal planets you can catch a glimpse about which other life areas the transit will affect.
There can be no general rule about the gifts you will receive from the Part of Fortune. This astrological point will function in a rather unique way for every person, and its benefits will be derivatives of the natal planets placements and transits. Understand that if it is difficult to exactly predict what a planet will give, predicting the outcome of their derivative will be quite more difficult. And this might also be a part of the magic that the Part of Fortune offers; unique and personal presents from the universe to every individual. And presents are lot more fun when we do not know what is wrapped up inside the box.
