Imumcaelum (IC)

- the Latin term for 'lowest heaven'; hence the abbreviation: IC. The degree of the ecliptic (zodiac) that reaches its lowest declination beneath the earth (due north in the northern hemisphere; due south in the southern hemisphere). In quadrant systems of house division it denotes the 4th house cusp. Not to be confused with the nadir.
