Good fortune comes in 100 guises, at times soaring in a cloud of health and prosperity, at times travelling alone. In all of its many forms, may good fortune come to you. Luck arrives where it is welcomed, it pours in from all directions. Like the earth, it comes back to life after even the darkest winter. May abundant happiness reveal itself to you in the progress of each year, in the joy of blessed new unions, in the challenge of rewarding work, in lucky smiles, in the bounty of gaining that which you wish and work for in life.
