ABSTRACT Although there has been an immense amount of scholarship on Marsilio Ficino, his life and writings, much of it excellent, an area that I would argue is fundamental for understanding both him and his work – astrology – has received much more problematic attention. In this essay, I will indicate some of my first and still coalescing thoughts on one central facet of this issue by asking whether Ficino’s astrology in De vita has a significant theurgical dimension, and by exploring what this might mean.
