The Fortuna part is the projected point of this measure between Sun and Moon.
It is of an impressive beauty, when things come in an “analog” way in our head, isn’t it?
Joseph Campbell, a mythologist, calls our attention to the virtue of the symbol.
The analogy is the fairest way to get in touch with the ideal world, where there is no time, where we are in line with eternity.
Part of Fortune – Meaning
When we hack the symbol does our conscience seem to be nourished by divine conscience? What I do here is, to a certain extent, a spiritual attempt to understand the world and me.
John Brawley, a contemporary astrologer and also a philosopher of traditional astrology, teaches that the Part of Fortune could be called Part of the Hunger, because the Moon talks about the nutrition of the soul, and the body.
After all, the body is a vehicle for fulfilling the soul’s longings. And the soul is the materialization of the spirit.
There are philosophical controversies about this measure, whether it is only the moon that goes after the sun or if the sun also looks for the moon. I, particularly, am part of the team that believes in this relationship of mirroring the points. And what does that mean?
When we are born at night, the distance to be taken is from the Moon and when we are born by day, the distance is taken from the Sun.
And our desires? Will they be attended at all?
First, we need to define desire in this context. We are not talking about erotic desire, we are in the field of longing.
At this point we do a mind-blowing reflection, what is hunger?
It is the Moon that keeps a part of what we lack, an absence. The Fortune Party makes us look at the Moon and the Sun. I take the opportunity to provoke Brawley (far from me, disagree, I’m in love with him).
The Part of Fortune is that scenario where we can look closely at our absences, but as a result of exactly what puts us in our path. Or, in easy words, “what you are looking for is looking for you”.
At Cinema Cue, the Saturnalia School project on astrological and cinematographic narratives we call the Part of Fortune a plot twist or the turning point of the narrative. It is precisely at that point that the hunger for history will finally be quenched.
When the conflict will unfold, it is from there that everything will seem to make the most sense. And sometimes, we understand Fortuna only when it eludes us.
Perhaps Fortune is something that is modulating the Hero’s Journey.
It is, at the same time, the yearning and the exit from the world as we conceived it, it puts us on our way, with the tools we have to follow: friends, allies, and easy places to walk.
7th House – Meaning
Casa 7, the third angular house in a birth chart, is the first house above the horizon, being commonly referred to as the “Casa das Pancreas”.
It deals with our serious relationships, our agreements. The cusp (initial line) of the Seventh House is the location of the so-called “Descending Sign”, that is, the Sign that was setting on the eastern horizon at the exact moment of birth.

The seventh house gives clues as to how we dedicate ourselves to the greatest good of all. It is the social conscience manifested through the individual and politics.
It also shows what attracts us to others, the qualities we admire in people, especially those with whom we have relationships. We usually relate to others for the purpose of achieving a specific goal.
But with that comes the recognition that when we cooperate, interact, make partnerships and help people, we also help ourselves.
Through the associations we make, we realize that it is not possible to live alone or to progress for a long time on your own, without the help of anyone.
By maintaining contacts and making agreements and partnerships, we fulfill part of our essence. It is through our partners that we work, play, love, create, learn, help, complete and be completed.
The others are the other half that helps make us whole.
The way we relate to others will help define us as human beings and mirror our desires.

Fortune is the moment of the conflict at its end or that lucky stroke in the journey, the meeting with the mentor who guides and when we killed the dragon to recover the elixir and go back to the beginning.
Fortune is the beginning, middle and end of the journey.
Returning to Zoltan, a teenager’s yearning to grow is valid for the fortune teller and wish genius, and it is from his achievement that the lucky man realizes that that wish was not exactly what he needed, although he had the choice to remain great forever.
