I know that there is a Gemarah (somewhere in Shabbos I think), that discuses birth signs, based on days of the week and month. The Gemarah ends with Ein Mazal B'Yisroel and a few stories that illustrate this point. Does anyone know exactly where it is?

@DoubleAA but the asker thought it was b'Yisrael. – msh210 Jul 12 '12 at 17:44
@msh210 Tell me what google suggests for you when you type in 'ein mazel biyisrael'. – Double AA Jul 12 '12 at 18:51

Perhaps Shabbat 156a-b? The phrase also appears once in Nedarim 32a.
