#6 – Auspicious

I use to think word had a negative connotation instead of the positive one:

auspicious aw-SPISH-uhs, adjective:
1. Giving promise of success, prosperity, or happiness; predicting good; as, “an auspicious beginning.”
2. Prosperous; fortunate; as, “auspicious years.”

But as Saturday fell on a very auspicious day in the Chinese calendar, every hotel in Nanjing was booked for weddings.
— Seth Kaplan with Craig S. Smith, “Adventure the Chinese Way”, New York Times, May 3, 2000
