What is the ‘fortune share’ in a birth chart? The part, or lot, of fortune is a location that is usually indicated in all horoscopes with the letters P.F. and that popularly is a point related to ‘good fortune’, happiness and even material gains.
While these ‘meanings’ offer a good reason for including P.F. In computer-delineated horoscopes, not much research has been done on a deeper meaning on this point (starting from case studies, for example).
The lot of fortune is known and reused in astrology than in ancient times, as for example in Classical Greece; in Arabic astrology, for example, this point was considered of relevant importance for the study of the natal chart (along with other parts or ‘lots’).
Part of Fortune – Meaning and Info
Schulman, faithful to his painstaking effort to bring light and clarity on prominent horoscope topics that have been little analyzed and on which an air of uncertainty hovers, opens in this volume an honest debate on this matter.
Drawing from his practical experience as an astrologer, as well as his ability to unravel the mysteries of the mind – and of psychology and of the soul – Schulman studies the meaning of P.F. based on his own research and professional work, as well as offering examples of various letters from well-known characters.
The result is a delineation of the meaning of the location of the P.F. in the Signs and Houses, as well as a mention of the Aspects (conjunction, square, trine, opposition) that can form this point with other planets. Like other books by the author, a little treasure of wisdom.
It is extracted, in daytime births, from the arc that forms between the Sun and the Moon, added to the Ascendant, and in nocturnal births, from the arc that forms between the Moon and the Sun added to the Ascendant.
It is fortunate that this series of books, which delve into aspects of astrology that is mentioned but little studied, is carried out by an astrologer with the skill of Martin Shulman, who has a great finesse for the psychological approach and places great emphasis on spiritual evolution.
It is usually considered that the Ascendant, in the birth chart, is the most relevant symbol after the Sun.
Hence, in colloquial conversations it is usually asked about the location of the ascendant as well as the sign in which the Astro King is found.
The astrological meaning of this point is ‘how the person relates to the world, how we show ourselves to others, how we perceive our immediate surroundings’. It is like the dress and glasses that we wear to leave the house and face the world.
It is what the Greeks would have called the mask, which was also the term from which they started to designate the person – and thus we can link the meaning of the Ascendant with the personality of each one of us.
If the Sun were our center, our intimate self, with whom we meet when we are silent and alone, the Ascendant would be closer to our social ‘I’, to our person projected in the outside world.
The book, like all of Schulman’s, is clear and insightful on exposition, and straightforward on organization.
After an introduction of 50 pages, the book is structured in chapters dedicated to each of the signs in which the ascendant can be found (Virgo, Scorpio, Libra …).
It delineates psychological profiles of these locations, and above all, it opens a discussion about the ways in which this relationship with the environment can be lived constructively or in an exhausting way.
In his acute observations, we will always recognize ourselves, and we will recognize our struggle to live in a more positive way our relationship with the environment.
This book is part of a series of karmic astrology books by the same author. All of them, in their own way, carry the word karma in their title or subtitle.
This shouldn’t scare off readers who don’t like these concepts; This is above all an astrology book, developed from the author’s prism on those accumulated in past existences – just as other books have a ‘spiritual evolution’ approach, others are more psychological, and others are more ‘deterministic’.
In general, Schulman’s series of books are regarded as a series of concise essays with an unsuspected density in as for the astrological knowledge displayed.
Many of its readers acknowledge that they periodically return to these books to find new jewelry and gemstones in their reading.

As balanced and controlled the Libra may be, making decisions is not one of its strengths. Those who can relieve the zodiac sign of one or the other decision will quickly take a permanent place in their life. People who struggle with their own decision-making difficulties avoid Libra.
Their penchant for beauty makes Libra as arrogant and vain. She actually only means well. She has a sensitive character and although she is a good mediator, she is herself conflict-averse and therefore very vulnerable. Their superficiality protects them from the outside.

In other words, Libra will act one way or another based on whom he is with, where he is from, etc.

If you do not dedicate yourself to it, you will appreciate it. In addition, beauty, aesthetics, dance, etc. Libra is very elegant and formal. Its ruler is the planet Venus.

Such characteristics can be changed if, in childhood, the person had his or her desires neglected by the family and has been left in the background.
The moment a child realizes that their abilities do not echo or are left without a positive response, they may begin to disbelieve their value.
Thus, you can create some standards of behavior that always leave you in a position inferior to others in adulthood and for this reason, it becomes a little more difficult to see yourself deserving of benefits. This problem in self-esteem can open doors for problems or manipulative people.
The solution to breaking this pattern, if any, is to use the positive virtues of Libra and always see the other side of the coin impartially.
