The 20th century British astrologer Charles Carter stated that "It is probable that there is no branch of Astrology upon which more nonsense has been poured forth than the doctrine of the precession of the equinoxes." (precession of the equinoxes as the root cause of the astrological ages) In 2000 Neil Spencer in his book True as the Stars Above expressed a similar opinion about the astrological ages.
Spencer singles out the astrological ages as being "fuzzy", "speculative", and the least-defined area of astrological lore.

An astrological age is a time period in astrologic theology which astrologers claim parallels major changes in the development of Earth's inhabitants, particularly relating to culture, society, and politics.
Derek and Julia Parker claim that it is impossible to state the exact date for the start of any astrological age and acknowledge that many astrologers believe the Age of Aquarius has arrived while many claim the world is at the end of the Age of Pisces.
What is highly contentious in modern times is the claim by many that observation of the effects of precession of the equinoxes was known well before the time of Hipparchus and his contemporaries in Greece or even Mesopotamia.It was an attempt to marry science and mythology that had become separated by the ancient Greeks.Santillana and von Dechend believed that the old mythological stories handed down from antiquity were not random fictitious tales but were accurate depictions of celestial cosmology clothed in tales to aid their oral transmission.For example, by 2700 the vernal point will have moved into Aquarius, but due to overlap the vernal point will also point to Pisces.Many astrologers consider the entrance into a new astrological age a gradual transition called a "cusp".
