In Zodiacal Releasing, two luminaries, the Moon and the Sun, reconnect each other and release the undertone. You need to know which one of Day/Night sects you belong to, and your Ascendent degree (hence the exact time of birth is important).

Lot of Fortune

How do you calculate your lot of Fortune? For a DAY native, count the degrees from the Sun to the Moon in your natal chart, then count the same number of degrees from your Ascendent in the same direction. Where you stop is where your lot of Fortune is.

For example, for a DAY native with Ascendent in Libra 10, Moon in Cancer 15 and Sun in Leo 15:

Sun Leo 15 → → → Moon Cancer 15

(30 degrees from the Sun to the Moon)

Ascendent Libra 10 → → → Virgo 10 = LOT OF FORTUNE

(30 degrees from Ascendent to the Lot of Fortune)

 

For a NIGHT native, count the degrees from the Moon to the Sun in your natal chart, then count the same number of degrees from your Ascendent in the same direction. Where you stop is where your lot of Fortune is.

For example, for a NIGHT native with Ascendent in Cancer 10, Moon in Cancer 15 and Sun in Leo 15:

Moon Cancer 15 → → → Sun Leo 15

(30 degrees from the Moon to the Sun)

Ascendent Cancer 10 → → → Leo 10 = LOT OF FORTUNE

(30 degrees from Ascendent to the Lot of Fortune)

 

As you may have noticed, in order to calculate your lot of Fortune in your natal chart, you move in the direction of:

your sect light (Sun for Day natives, Moon for Night natives) → the other light.

Lot of Spirit

For your lot of Spirit, you do exactly the reverse: for a Day native, count from the Moon to the Sun; for a Night native, count from the Sun to the Moon. Then, count the same number of degrees from your Ascendent in the same direction. You move therefore in the direction of:

the other light (Moon for Day natives, Sun for Night natives) → your sect light.

Fortune angles

Your lot of Fortune has now become your acquired 1st place, so to speak.

If your lot of Fortune is found in Aquarius, that is your Fortune 1st place. You count from there in zodiacal order:

Clearly, these are different from your normal 1/4/7/10th places, which you count from your Ascendent (=1st place). Fortune 1/4/7/10th places are called Fortune angles. They indicate periods of heightened activity and importance (especially 1st and 10th).

Angular triads

Fortune angles are seen as a sequence of three (triads). Fortune 1/4/7/10th places constitute peak periods and one sign before is preparatory period, one after is completion period. Thus, with the same example as above:

Capricorn (preparatory)
Fortune 1st = Aquarius (peak)
Pisces (completion)

and so forth with the rest. So if you find yourself in Capricorn above, you know more is to come and you are getting ready for a certain peak. If you are instead in Pisces above, you are finishing up what has already peaked.

Releasing from Spirit

Which one of the lots do you use for releasing?

Spirit is more your solar indicator, your mature life with intentional actions and conscious choice. While Fortune is your lunar indicator, your early life and physical conditions. You normally release from Spirit, unless you are particularly interested in your health.

There are other lots. Every planet in your chart can in fact be a catalyst for releasing energy under certain theme. I focus on Fortune/Spirit, because of their obvious analogy to Dark/Light (and I don’t want to lose you in a myriad of lots – this pair gives you more than enough information, believe me).

In Part 3, I will explain how to look at different levels, with considerations to the angular sequence and malefic/benefic influence. I will be using real persons’ examples.
