Therefore, the Age of Aquarius follows the Age of Pisces. The approximate 2, years for each age corresponds to the average time it takes for the vernal equinox to move from one constellation of the zodiac into the next. This average can be computed by dividing the earth's 25,year gyroscopic precession period by twelve, the number of zodiac constellations.
Astrologers do not agree on when the Aquarian age will start or even if it has already started. Based on Campion's research, most published materials on the subject state that the Age of Aquarius arrived in the 20th century 29 claims , with the 24th century in second place with twelve claimants.
Astrological ages are taken to be associated with the precession of the equinoxes. The slow wobble of the earth's spin axis on the celestial sphere is independent of the diurnal rotation of the Earth on its own axis and the annual revolution of the earth around the sun. Traditionally this 25,year-long cycle is calibrated, for the purposes of determining astrological ages, by the location of the sun in one of the twelve zodiac constellations at the vernal equinox, which corresponds to the moment the sun crosses the celestial equator, marking the start of spring in the Northern Hemisphere each year.
However the 12 zodiacal constellations, as defined in modern astronomy, are not uniform in size, leading some astrologers to believe that the corresponding ages should also vary in duration.
This however is a contentious issue among astrologers. In the International Astronomical Union defined the edges of the 88 official constellations. Many astrologers dispute this approach because of the varying sizes and overlap between the zodiacal constellations. They prefer to have the 12 zodiacal constellations be of uniform size 30 degrees along the ecliptic.

The expression Age of Aquarius in popular culture usually refers to the heyday of the hippie and New Age movements in the s and s. However, the song further defines this dawning of the age within the first lines: "When the Moon is in the seventh house and Jupiter aligns with Mars, then peace will guide the planets and love will steer the stars".
