1. The lower part gives enterprise, the disposition to venture, to run risks with the hope of success.
VERY LARGE: 7 – Your expectations are almost unbounded; you build castles in the air, are constantly living in the future which is always bright; you are apt to spend your life in a world of brilliant illusions. Are very sanguine, buoyant, enterprising, and speculative.
LARGE: 6 – Are inclined to overrate the future; will always look on the bright side of things and overlook obstacles and evils; ou attempt more than you can accomplish, and will console yourself when disappointed by the anticipation of better fortune next time; are cheerful and sanguine.
FULL: 5 – Your expectation are generally reasonable, you are sanguine and enterprising; will often realise more than you expect, are encouraged by bright prospects, but are neither despondent nor too much elated; will venture little.
AVERAGE: 4 – Are inclined to expect and to attempt too little rather than too much; will get easily discouraged by the obstacles you encounter, are disposed to be satisfied with the present instead of looking to the future; are seldom elated.
MODERATE: 3– Will expect and attempt too little; are very moderate in your expectations, will often look on the dark side of things; you will life in the present, and have more fear than hope for the future.
SMALL: 2 – Will expect little from the future but misfortune, you are easily discouraged, and will magnify dangers; are liable to become despondent and melancholy; you lack enterprise.
VERY SMALL: 1 – Will expect little or nothing that is desirable, and undertake nothing for fear of loss.
TO CULTIVATE – Never allow yourself to despair, banish gloom by your cheerfulness, and associate only with persons of a buoyant and happy disposition; remember there is no desert without its oasis; look on the bright side of life and anticipate success.
TO RESTRAIN – Never venture further than your cooler judgment or your friends advice; never dabble in speculations, and let your judgment and intellect guide hope.
