In order to inform its strategists and leaders, the house doesn't rely solely on its cadre of Diviners: These are, after all, in limited supply, may be unavailable, and are sometimes unable to get what is sought.
To compensate for this perceived weakness, it recruits and form mundane astrologers, which use Inceptions to answer specific questions, and can also chart horoscopes for magi, or perform Ligatures on their behalf. While not as efficient in many ways than the house magi, they are, despite their intensive training, easier and cheaper to form, more numerous, and can be attached to junior magi on relatively minor missions.
As Loremasters, they are also expected to Enrich Items, and usually double as specialized teachers.
