This normally tells you if this period is good or bad for you. There are three levels of break-down:-
- Auspicious / Very Auspicious
- Inauspicious / Very Inauspicious
Generally, if it is auspicious you will find that there would not be much problems in that period. On the contrary, you will find that something good should happen in this period, eg a smooth career.
If it is Mixed-Blessing, it means that you will get something good say for example a birth of a new baby. At the same time something not good will also happen, such as maybe losing your job.
If it is inausipicious, generally something bad would happen, such as you find that this period is very tough or that you meet with some misfortune.
Those are just some guides. Remember that it is only a 5-year period, so there are some limitations to the accuracy of its prediction. But it is taken as a whole 5-year in general with other things in your environment not taken into consideration.
1-year Luck (Annual Luck)
This is your annual luck, which is determined by the changes in the year. It does have a major influence in determining your luck for the year. For example, if your Big Luck and Lesser Luck says that a period is good for you, but during that Annual Luck, it shows an inauspicious.
This would then mean that you will encounter some difficulties during this period. If this period is auspicious, then you should enjoy a good year.
