 Age of the Goddess
The ages defined by constellational boundaries on the ecliptic are not the same as the ages as measured along the precessional path of the North Celestial Pole.
The boundary lines between the northern constellational ages on the precessional path of the North Celestial Pole are directly related to the zodiacal constellations that fall along the ecliptic and the stars in those regions can be used as the rulers of that area of the sky.
Constellations aren't geometrically segmented along lines of celestial latitude and celestial longitude as the accepted modern boundaries between them are, so relating a particular zodiacal age to a polar age is difficult at best.
