  • The spirits are very displeased today. They will do their best to make your life difficult: When you see this message, you will have the lowest possible luck in the game.
  • The spirits are somewhat annoyed today or mildly perturbed. Luck will not be on your side:  You may see two variations of this phrase; both give lousy luck, with one being lower than the other. 
  • This is rare. The spirits feel absolutely neutral today: This fortune indicates that your day will have no kind of daily luck bonus or penalties.
