adjective

Presenting favorable conditions; favorably inclined, auspicious.

The time is now propitious, as he guesses, The meal is ended, she is bored and tired, Endeavours to engage her in caresses Which still are unreproved, if undesired. Flushed and decided, he assaults at once; Exploring hands encounter no defence.

—T. S. Eliot The Waste Land (1922)
