Propitious

Propitious

Pronounced:
<pro-pish-us>

Convenient. Favorable. Kind

My use:

The weather today is propitious.  A sunny day is always good for a picnic.

Literary use:
By Bront
The dew fell, but with propitious softness; no breeze whispered.


Memory trick:
prop . it. ious

prop (reminds of) = proper or correct
it (reminds of) = it
ious (sounds like) = us
proper it is to us

Listen: Propitious
