O-mikuji is a method of fortune telling found in shrines and temples in Japan.  O-mikuji comes in the form of paper slips, which contain predictions of one’s general fortune, health, love, business, finance, relationships, academic progress, etc.  Sometimes Japanese people use o-mikuji to find out what to look for and what to avoid in the future, or simply test one’s luck. Results of o-mikuji fortunes usually come in several levels.  

In the Japanese House this month, shake the omikuji box, pull out the fortune stick and find out your fortune for 2018!
