Do you mean astrology? A lot of the astrologers came from the East. The Roman government feared the influence of these foreigners over the masses and often expelled them. Trying to predict the fate of the Emperor actually became a capitol offense, I believe.

 

Nonetheless, as traditional society broke down and Eastern culture started influencing Rome, there was a sector of society that turned to foreign cults for answers, astrology included. But it was considered a little seedy and scandalous.
