Amniomancy



A form of divination practiced by using a caul, or membrane which sometimes envelopes a child's head at birth. From inspecting the caul wise women would foretell the future of the baby. If its color is red then happy days or good fortune were ahead for the child, but if it is lead-colored then misfortune laid in the child's path. A.G.H.
