Dear Rhonda,

Because the astrologers of yore were very well educated and had mathematical capabilities they became important "seers" and were also known as mathematici.  They claimed that they could forecast omens and thus know in advance  the course of events for a complete lifetime.   Hope this helps!

You also might have been thinking of The Magi. the Wise Men or the Three Kings of the Christmas story were thought to be astrologers since they were interested in the Star.
