Arabic Parts [Astro*Index]

A system of named sensitive points made popular by Arab astrologers working with Babylonion, Egyption, and Greek sources. Abu Ma'shar wrote he learned ninety-seven of the parts from the first two sources. The Part of Fortune is commonly used by modern astrologers. Horary astrologers make use of others, such as the parts of death, find, and marriage. Arabic parts can be used to discover a release for a problem of handling the energies of two planets in one's chart.

Arabic Parts [Prima]

An Arabic part is a significant point on the ecliptic whose position is derived from a combination of other significant points or planets. For example, the Part of Fortune (Pars Fortuna) is as distant from the ascendant as the Moon is from the Sun; the Pars Fortuna was considered the "horoscope (ascendant) of the Moon".

Many of the parts are not truly Arabic. The Arab astrologers elaborated lists of parts (lots) they inherited from ancient Egyptian, Babylonian and Greek sources.

The Part of Fortune is the only one commonly used by modern astrologers, except for horary astrologers, who make use of the Parts of Death, "Find," Marriage, and others. Many of the parts are generat- ed by turning the chart so that one of the planets is at the degree of the ascendant and marking the degrees where the other planets are then located. These points are named and relate to various concerns in a person's life.

These are examples of some significant parts:

 

Accomplishment = ASC + Sun - Jupiter
Astrology = ASC + Mercury - Uranus
Change = ASC + Uranus - Pluto
Commerce = ASC + Mercury - Sun
Danger = ASC + Mercury - Saturn
Death = ASC + 8th Cusp - Moon
Fate = ASC + Saturn - Sun
Father = ASC + Sun - Saturn
Fortune (Day) = ASC + Moon - Sun
Fortune (Night) = ASC + Sun - Moon
Friends = ASC + Moon - Uranus
Love = ASC + Venus - Sun
Luck = ASC + Moon - Jupiter
Marriage = ASC + 7th Cusp - Venus
Mother = ASC + Moon - Venus
Occultism = ASC + Neptune - Uranus
Popularity = ASC + Venus - Pluto
Profession = ASC + Moon - Saturn
Sickness = ASC + Mars - Saturn
Speculation = ASC + Jupiter - Neptune
Time for Action = ASC + Jupiter - Sun
Tragedy = ASC + Saturn - Sun
Travels (Short) = ASC + 3rd Cusp - Mercury
Understanding = ASC + Mars - Mercury
Spirit = ASC + Sun - Moon
Brethren = ASC + Jupiter - Saturn
(Day) = ASC + Saturn - Jupiter (Night)
Fortune in Husbandry = ASC + Saturn - Mercury
Inheritances and Possessions = ASC + Moon - Saturn
Male Children = ASC + Jupiter - Moon
Female Children = ASC + Venus - Moon
