Omens may be considered either good or bad depending on their interpretation. These omens should happen naturally and not be made to happen; only then the signs can be interpreted as true.
Bad omens are a way of telling us that something bad may occur and that we should become alert to the bad times. If we do the remedies or become aware, then either bad time doesn’t come or the bad time isn’t as bad as it was supposed to be.
