The paper examines the metaphysical ideas employed to embed Hellenistic astrology in an Indian religious and cultural context, relating them to questions of causality, determinism and moral freedom. These ideas are contrasted against the largely Thesophical adaptation of the same concepts, which in the 19th and 20th centuries formed the emerging modern astrology in Europe, and which led it to abandon the traditional prognostic model in favour of an esoteric-symbolic one, in a radical reversal of the compromise between astrology and theology dominating the Christian Middle Ages and Renaissance.
