Part of the Mother

From Astrodienst Astrowiki

A sensitive point in the horoscope and one of the Arabian parts.

The formula for daytime births is: add the degrees of the ascendant and moon, then substract the degree of Venus; and for nighttime births, the ascendant + Venus degrees - the moon's degree.

The part of motherhood[1] in traditional astrology did indicate something about one's actual mother. In modern astrology, however, this part more generally shows the point in the horoscope that is particularly sensitive to themes such as nurturing, caring, emotional security and the process of letting go. Aspects to this point from planets indicate how these energies will be expressed.
