if one periodically observed the sky at dawn, say every 72 years and coinciding with when the Sun is over the equator, the changing background stars (behind the Sunrise) give the impression that the constellations of the Zodiac gradually process around the observable horizon.

Just for interest: when this occurs in the 'house of Gemini' we face the location of our Sun, with Orion and the Duat forming the backdrop on the outer edge of our spiral Milky Way Galaxy. Directly opposite, below the horizon (as Earth is inbetween) Sagittarius blends into the galaxy's central bulge. However, its neighbor Scorpio will be simultaneously visible above the horizon 180*deg behind the viewers back, with Orion in view dead ahead, so to speak...

Tracking precession by this method i.e. around the Ecliptic -looking along the plane of Earth's orbit, may be (mis)construed as a product of our Solar system curving through space around another star. 

HOWEVER, the progression of stars  - around the Ecliptic Pole - perpendicular to Earth's plane of orbit, reveal differently:
they are perceived to revolve snugly around the EP and form a pattern, which to generate, requires a specific Earth motion. - one that cannot be ascribed to 'curving around a binary..' -this is apparent and not reliant on theoretical math.

Star coordinates provide the only tangible data on precession, as their changing positions are veritable (US Naval Observatory, Washington DC). The star motion is a composite - captured repeatedly at a specific instant along its path of orbit. This translates as Earth consistently occupying a stationary position and performing the perturbed motion on the spot  - wobbling around a still point, despite its circuit of the Sun. Precession is thus not induced by Solar or Lunar gravity either (the accelerating phenomenon is due to perspective, parallax).

Hope this helps your research
