Related to auspice, "a divine omen," auspicious is an old word with a colorful history. In Latin, an auspex was a person who observed the flight of birds to predict the future. Luckily, you no longer have to be a bird-watching fortune-teller to guess whether something is auspicious. Red is always an omen.
