The Part of Fortune in astrology represents the areas of life that will bring you the greatest success if you live authentically.

This aspect of astrology can also be interpreted as your purpose in your life; what you are meant to do, be, or even focus on.  

The Part of Fortune is not a planet or asteroid but rather the exact place where your sun, moon, and rising signs find compatibility with one another, resulting in harmony and peace.  

This aspect of astrology is often known as lucky, however, it doesn't necessarily bring luck. Instead, it reveals your natural best assets that have the potential to effortlessly bring you the greatest success whether it be in career, love, or big life decisions.

Like many aspects in astrology, though, it also makes a difference where it shows up in your natal chart.  

You can use a birth chart calculator to calculate your Part of Fortune, or Fate of Fortune as it is sometimes called, which is the place where your Sun, Moon and Rising signs intersect.
