Ye twelfthe Daye of Christmas and ye last:
What is decumbiture?
- A chart type now defunct. In its heyday it was called ‘cumbiture’ , old English word for ‘combination’. A combination chart.
- The word means, confinement to a sick-bed. It is a chart, sometimes with 16 instead of 12 houses, to forecast recovery or death.
- A chart cast when a person is first confined to bed with sickness. As this is often difficult to establish, it is the time when the astrologer is brought the urine of the patient. The chart is used to forecast the crises of the illness.
- A very rare form of cucumber, now found only in astrological gardens. They ripen only at the time of the Cancer Ingress of the Sun.
