Deg. Min.
Longitude of the Ascendent
Virgo (6th Sign) 13 56
Longitude of the Sun
Leo (5th Sign) 9 36
Longitude of the Moon
Aquarius (11th Sign) 19 18

18 8 14
Subtract— 5 9 36
Longitude of the Part of Fortune
12 28 38

The twelfth sign is Pisces, hence the longitude of the Part of Fortune in the horoscope will be Pisces 28:38.

In the above example the student will notice that when adding the degrees of the Moon and Ascendant: 19+18+the 1 degree carried in addition of the minutes equals 38, but there are only 30 degrees in a sign, so one sign was carried forward and added to the other signs, the same as we add 60 minutes to degrees or hours.

If, after subtracting the longitude of the Sun there are more than 12 signs left, we subtract the circle of 12 and work with the remainder.

It also happens that the signs of the Sun’s longitude exceed the combined longitudes of the Moon and Ascendant, so that it is impossible to perform the subtraction, For instance, if the—
