The Fiduciary Points.
The original Fiduciary Points in Astrology were the fixed stars Aldebaran and Antares which were located at the mid-points of Taurus and Scorpio when Astrology was conceived.
This was the most appropriate placing for the middle of Spring and Autumn.
As time went by, however, Astrologers observed that the Vernal Equinox moved backwards through the Astrological signs.
This gave birth to the Astrological Ages.
At present the Vernal Equinox is at 5° Pisces.
But because we are still in the Age of Pisces the Vernal Equinox is fixed at 0° Aries for the whole of the Age.
As we approach the Age of Aquarius there will be much debate about the position of the Vernal Equinox and the fixing of the Tropical Horoscope.
