From Lecture, notes taken at Robert Schmidt's workshop in Hellenistic astrology in Cumberland, July 2000. He says that
the analogy is necessary, because events in the heavens do not immediately apply to an individual's life, but are much
larger than the individual, and that it would be hubris to think otherwise.This is standard doctrine, according to many
sources for the lot of fortune. It is not as clear in the case of the other lots if they can also be horoskopai.Vettius Valens,

In earlier days, astrologers had the time, inclination and the peace of mind to calculate the various Arabic Parts of a horoscope as per need. However, with the advent of modern computing devices and advanced technology like Artificial Intelligence enabled astrology softwares, the astrologers’ life have become less tedious in calculation and more quality-driven in prediction. One such Artificial Intelligence enabled software for the first time in the world history of KP system astrology is the Light of KP Astrology with automatic predictive capacity. It also has a unique Arabic Parts calculation engine and a special reporting facility that provided a unique predictive quotient to the astrologer.
We will now use a number of a well-known Case-studies and hone our skills of Arabic parts with the Light of Of KP Astrology Software (LOKPA)3. All the charts have been taken from Astrodatabank 65000+ charts that are integrated into the LOKPA software for doing research also, along with doing KP system of astrology. All charts have been sorted with the software for Rodden’s AA rating.
Case Study 1
Arabic Parts can also show a lot of positive and fortunate events such as wealth, sudden rises in life, gain in fortune etc. Here we are looking at some such Arabic Parts like Immense Finances & Wealth (Asc+Ven-Mer), Sudden Advancement in Life (Asc+Fortuna-Saturn) and taking up one chart as below.
Brigitte Anne-Marie Bardot is a French actress,
singer, dancer, and fashion model, who later became an animal rights activist. Bardot was an aspiring ballerina in her early life. She started her acting career in 1952. She achieved international recognition in 1957 for her role in the controversial film ‘And God Created Woman’. Bardot caught the attention of French intellectuals. She was the subject of Simone de Beauvoir’s 1959 essay, The Lolita Syndrome, which described Bardot as a “locomotive of women’s history” and built upon existentialist themes to declare her the first and most liberated woman of post-war France. She later starred in Jean-Luc Godard’s 1963 film Le Mépris. For her role in Louis Malle’s 1965 film Viva Maria! Bardot was nominated for a BAFTA Award for Best Foreign Actress. From 1969 to 1978, Bardot was the official face of Marianne (who had previously been anonymous) to represent the liberty of France.
As we can see in the Arabic Parts Table above, Sudden Advancement part is conjoined with the 7th house of Brigette that relates with people and other persons. Brigette was always catapulted into fame (sometimes for wrong reasons) because of her movies and her interaction with other people. In fact, after retiring, she became an Animal Rights Activist. During the 2000s, she generated controversy by criticizing immigration and Islam in France and has been fined five times for inciting racial hatred.
Observe her Arabic Part of Immense Finances and Wealth with the 11th house of income and success showing her great riches and wealth she has accumulated over the years through her work and multiple marriages and partnerships.
Case Study 2
The next birth chart is that of Francis Ford Coppola, an American film director,
producer, screenwriter and film composer. His directorial prominence was cemented with the release in 1972 of The Godfather, a film which revolutionized movie-making in the gangster genre, earning praise from both critics and the public before winning three Academy Awards—including his second Oscar (Best Adapted Screenplay, with Mario Puzo), Best Picture, and his first nomination for Best Director.Coppola was born in Detroit, Michigan, to father Carmine Coppola (1910–1991),a flautist with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, and mother Italia Coppola (1912–2004). Coppola is the middle of three children. Born into a family of Italian immigrant ancestry, his paternal grandparents came to the United States from Bernalda, Basilicata.
As the above chart shows, lord of fortune, Mercury is debilitated and retrograde, which cancels debilitation but gives late rise in life. A very important feature in this horoscope in the perspective of Arabic Parts is the Arabic Part Sudden Advancement and Rise in Life. Both these parts are in the 4th house. Rise in Life is associated with Ketu, which is again in the 4th house. Movies and films are related with the 4th and 5th house. And Directorship is seen from the sign Aries and the 10th house as it is a leadership role. Here both the AP are in the 4th house of films and movies, in the sign Aries. Note, the AP Rise in Life is 180 opposition to the 10th house. Isn’t that simple?
Case Study 3
Now We will specifically choose Birth horoscopes of those, who have died through accidents, calamity and sudden death.
This is the Birth horoscope of the famous Princess Diana,
who died in a car crash with Dodi al- Fayad in a tunnel in Paris on 31st August 1997. Could such a kind of fatality be predicted from the chart? The answer is a clear yes. Look at the Arabic Part report, which shows that the two luminaries Sun for soul and Moon for after-life are in 1 degree conjunction with the Arabic parts Death and Disaster (Asc+8H – Moon) and Catastrophe (Asc+Ura-Sun). Sun (the karaka for soul) is in the natural 3rd sign of Gemini, denoting car. Her quality of marriage is also clear as seen by the Arabic part of Marriage in close conjunction to Ketu, the great exit point of all energies.
Case Study 4
This Birth chart is of the famous singer Carlos Gardel,
who died in a plane crash on 24 June 1935 in Medellin, Colombia. Is this apparent in the chart in a single glance. Obviously not. But when we use the correct Arabic Parts with the right formula setting, we immediately get to see the forewarning. See the Table below for Carlos.
We can clearly see that the Arabic Part of Death and Disaster is conjoined with his 6th house. Note the 6th house has fallen in the airy sign of Aquarius and Carlos died in air crash. Is it mere coincidence? May be not, when we calculate the Arabic Parts and check in the horoscope.
This write-up is just the tip of the iceberg. A lot more can be done with Arabic Parts or lots with the horoscope and seeing their close conjunctions with planets and houses. When two Arabic Parts conjoin together, a completely new picture emerges. So many ways are there to read a horoscope and there are so many beautiful tools that are available to an astrologer. But it will also require modern tools. Just like, now-a-days, we don’t find doctors who will keep their ears on the patient’s chest but use a stethoscope, and it has come to the extent of advanced digital Xray machines to say the least, gone are those days of astrological software tools which were merely Table and Chart calculators. Advanced astrological tools will give the power in the hands of the astrologers to make beautiful predictions for which astrology was originally designed.
Arabic Parts by being conjoined to the planet and/or to a house gives out the direct effect of the 3 values of which it is made up of. It shows the point of release of an action in the life of the individual. The Dasa-Bhukti-Anthra along with the transits will show some prominent picture of hit with the Arabic Part and the timing can be worked out for that particular life-event, promised in the horoscope.
