Paganism & Wicca - What Is A Caul?

The caul is a membrane that surrounds the head of certain newborns after they are born. 


Being born with a caul distinguishes the child as special and strong; various cultures interpret this power differently: 

• Being born with a caul may signal a child's psychic abilities, such as second sight or the capacity to soul-journey; 

• Being born with a caul may predispose (or doom, depending on viewpoint) a baby to join certain magical groups or pursue magical arts. 

• In certain regions of Europe, the phrase "to be born with a caul" has come to indicate "to be born fortunate."
