GREAT GOOD FORTUNE
You will advance in the world, gaining success
and prosperity. Like one free of c a r e , who walks
through flowering fields in the mild spring a i r ,
#
you may be at peace, entrusting your fortunes to
those who have your good in mind. But if you for-
get to be honest and kind, then misfortune will
be your r e w a r d .

• Your desire: will come true. But negligence will


bring failure, so have a c a r e .
• The awaited one: will come. Look for word
soon.
• Lost objects: will be found.
•Journeys: no obstacle, but be on your guard
against illness.
• T r a d e : no loss, and reasonable profits.
• Agriculture: good profits. P r o s p e c t s especially
good for spring.
• Directions: good r e s u l t s from advancing toward
the north.
•Quarrels: the wisest course is to stay out,
trusting to the judgement of others.
• Employees and dependents: it may be quicker
to ask for outside help o r advice.
• Change of residence: it would be well to hurry.
• Birth: do not be negligent, and all will be well.
• Illness: the most important thing is to have
faith in eventual recovery.
• Love and marriage: if you a r e in too much
of a hurry, it will all end in naught. Wait
for the proper time to come.
