What Does Part of Fortune in Scorpio Mean?

June 30, 2022

In a birth chart, the part of fortune (or the lot, as it’s also called) can provide insight into where you’re likely to be prosperous and successful in your life. While it’s not a planet, it describes where you’re likely to be the luckiest in your life. It’s determined by calculating the longitudes of the sun, moon, and rising sign within your birth chart.  

What Is My Part of Fortune?

Your part of fortune is where you can expect blessings in your life by living in your authentic truth and embracing the most authentic parts of yourself. It’s the most fortunate—as well as incredibly personal—placement the a birth char.

Because the part of fortune is factored by your Big 3 it brings forth good fortune based on your identity, soul, and spirit. It represents the things you attract by honoring who you are. The condition of the part of fortune can explain how easy (or challenging) it is for you to attract blessings in your life, so it’s essential to take a look at the zodiac sign as well as the astrological house it’s placed in your birth chart. 

“Your part of fortune is a mathematical point in your birth chart that is calculated by the positions of your sun, moon, and rising signs,” says Narayana Montúfar, senior astrologer and author of Moon Signs: Unlock Your Inner Luminary Power.

“It is an important point of integration, as it is related to the ‘fate and destiny’ of your Astral DNA,” she says. “Since the part of fortune is not a planet or physical body, you must create deep awareness around embodying the energy of the zodiac sign and the astrological house it occupies in order to bear its fruits and rewards.”

The sign your part of fortune is placed in can tell you the ways in which you’ll see prosperity show up in your life.

For example, if your part of fortune is in Taurus, you can expect to see lucky opportunities come your way in a way that’s stable, secure, and pleasant. Checking to see if there are any planets aspecting your part of fortune can also provide insight into the conditions of prosperity coming into your life.

Consider this: If Mars is closely aspecting your part of fortune, you might notice challenges or sudden situations affecting fortunes that come your way. If your part of fortune is aspected by Venus, however, you can expect your experiences to be pleasant and beneficial. 

The house your part of fortune is in can tell you where you can expect prosperity to show up in your life. For example, if you have your part of fortune in the fourth house of home and family, you can expect benefits to come your way pertaining to lineage or ancestry. If you have your part of fortune placed in the tenth house of career, you can expect abundance through your professional endeavors. Factoring in the zodiac sign can allow you to fully understand how to harness the energy of your part of fortune. 

Scorpio Part of Fortune Meaning

If your part of fortune is placed in the sign of Scorpio, you can expect prosperous opportunities to come through embracing your power as well as your emotional depth. For you, abundance will come through leaning into your vulnerability and using it as a way to bring you closer to what you want.

Because Scorpio is a fixed, water sign, there’s a protective, cautious quality about the sign. The best way to work with this placement is to release your fear of being out of control, and trust that by opening up, you can attract the things you want. 

How to Find It

In order to locate your part of fortune, you’ll want to enter your birth date into a website or software that can calculate it for you. “However, in terms of accuracy, it’s key to have an accurate birth time, so make sure to look at your birth certificate!” Narayana says.

In order to locate it in the birth chart, you’ll want to find the symbol that’s a circle, with an “X” in the center. Once you find it, you’ll want to take a look at the zodiac sign and the house its placed in, as well as looking to see if there are any planets in aspect to it.
