Help translating a omikuji 2015/1/18 22:59
Hey people, could I get some help translating an omikuji?
I tried Google translating it but it didnt turn out really good, I also saw some pages around the internet regarding the subject and I found out that my omikuji is a minor blessing. But past from that It was really hard.
So if someone here can help me with this I'll be really greatful.

Here's the link to the image: http://i38.servimg.com/u/f38/17/16/62/58/image10.jpg
