Chapter 1 Introduction
Chapter 2 The Moon & The Sun
Lunisolar precession is caused by the tidal pull of the Moon and Sun on
the Earths equatorial bulge. Lunar nutation is superimposed on this
process to give the 18.6 year nutation cycle.
key cycles are the tropical year, tropical month, the nodical year,
nodical month and lunar nutation.
Numerous eclipse cycles are important in the 56 year cycle, most notably
the Half Saros and Inex. Multiples of these two cycles give the various
sub-cycles, including the 56 year lunisolar cycle.
Tropical cycles of the Sun and lunar nodes can be correlated with the
timing of financial distress and the 56 year cycle.
Diurnal cycles of the Moon and Sun can be linked to the 56 year cycle via
the nutation cycle and the tropical year. These diurnal cycles can never
be assessed directly, given the data limitations imposed by week day
Apogee and harmonics are probably very important in the 56 year
cycle, although there is no proof to support such a proposition.
Tidal harmonics between the Sun Earth Moon offers the best
explanation of the 56 year cycle phenomenon.
3 Lunisolar Influences
A lunisolar influence has been shown to occur in a wide range
of phenomena. The most precise is the sexual breeding cycles of many
animal species. In contrast, only a very weak lunar phase effect has been
established for the timing of human births.
The lunar phase effect is not repeatable for a wide range of aberrant
human behaviours, which castes doubt on the few positive findings.
Financial markets tend to rise near the new Moon and fall near the full
Moon. This was replicated for numerous markets.
Most studies show earthquakes and volcanic eruptions cannot be correlated
with lunisolar cycles, casting serious doubt about a Moon Sun effect
in seismic cycles.
Lunar phase cycles can be linked with rainfall patterns, while sunny
weather has been shown to influence market performance. A 56 year cycle
did not show up in relation to the formation of US hurricanes or intense
Chapter 4 Annual One Day
Rises & Falls
1929, 1987 & 1997 October panics all had very strong Moon - Sun
similarities for the prior record highs, the October highs, the panics and
the recoveries. They also happened on the 7-27 and 7-28 days of the annual
phase significance cannot be produced form listings of the biggest one day
falls in the DJIA. However, this can be achieved assessing the biggest
annual one day rises and falls.
annual one day falls =>4.50% were most likely to occur roughly between
the 1st quarter full Moon and the 3rd quarter
new Moon. Between 1910 and 2000, there was only one exception in 1930.
In contrast, the annual one day data for the comparable rises yielded only
marginal significance for lunar phase at the .05 level.
also arises for annual one day rises and falls in relation to the
ecliptical positions of the Moon and Sun.
Annual one day falls with similar lunar phase tend to have the Moon and
Sun in similar ecliptical segments. This was most apparent for autumn
lunisolar effect is most evident for the biggest annual one day falls,
especially for lunar phase.
5 Mathematical Markets
are essentially mathematical in nature and the random walk efficient
market theory of modern economics may be rejected outright as having
little bearing on cycle reality.
ratio Pi could play an important role in the 56 year cycle, given that
lunisolar cycles involve various angular, ecliptical and diurnal circles.
No evidence can be offered to support such a proposal.
8.6 year panic cycle was linked by Martin Armstrong to Pi x 1000 solar
days and can be related to lunisolar cycles, especially tropical months.
The validity of this cycle is unknown, but it remains of great interest.
and the Fibonacci numbers have been associated with the Elliott Wave.
The Spiral Calendar is based on lunar years and the square root of Phi.
This technique gives numerous turning points in the markets and is linked
to Moon - Sun cycles.
Delta Phenomenon is based on various tropical cycles of Moon and Sun, as
well as the lunar year of 12 synodic months.
Moon - Sun eclipse cycles can be related to Phi and the Fibonacci - Lucas
numbers. This offers theoretical support for the use of these factors in
financial forecasting via such techniques as the Elliott Wave and the
Law shows up in many phenomena, including financial markets. This gives
the ratios of the first digit in a sample of non random data. There will
be a strong emphasis on the number one as the first digit (30%) through to
give a much better view of market behaviours than modern economic theory.
The latter does not account for the extremes in buying and selling and
thus has little relevance to the real world.
Phi Ratios & Eclipse Cycles
intervals between major September - October panics takes place in
multiples of eclipse cycles plus/minus small integral numbers of synodic
months, tropical years and tropical months. The notable exceptions were
the 1847, 1907 & 1997 panics, which happened outside the 18/56 year
patterns found in the 36 ysc Series 1.
Intervals associated with the AOD falls also tended to occur in integral
and half integral numbers of synodic months. However, this only applied to
events within the same 9/56 year grids and around the same months.
Inverse Phi ratios show up in financial patterns and applied mainly to
those major turns in investor sentiment taking place within the 36 ysc
Series 1 & 2. This was due to the presence of Lucas numbers in the
9/56 year patterns.
So little is known about how eclipse cycles function in financial markets.
A few examples may be presented, but how the how cycle operates remains a
is very little evidence to support traditional astrology, despite a
tremendous amount of research undertaken by scientists and astrologers
over the past century.
No hard proof can be offered to support a planetary influence in market
The planets do have an impact on the 56 year cycle via the process of
planetary precession. However, this is very weak compared with lunisolar
precession and therefore it is a question whether such weak forces are
detectable in financial patterns. Based on research to date, the answer
appears to be no.
Solar and lunar eclipses cannot be correlated with the timing of financial
crises, which contradicts traditional astrology. This was apparent despite
lunar nodes and eclipse cycles being very important in the 56 year cycle.
astrologers are able to achieve respectable forecasting accuracy. This
arises even though there is no firm scientific support for financial
Chapter 8 Astronomical Planes & Nodes
Gauquelin established links between planetary diurnal cycles and the
timing of human births, personality type and attaining success in certain
professions later in life. The relevant heavenly body was most likely
sited after rising or culmination.
After assessing 6.5 million French marriages for 1976 97, Castille
found that people were more likely to marry if they were born about the
same time of year.
Sunspot formation involves latitudinal passage, in which the key factors
are the solar equatorial plane and the parallel planes at the same
latitude North and South. A similar process may possibly operate in
terrestrial cycles, including financial cycles.
The 56 year cycle, sunspot formation and the findings by Gauquelin and
Castille are all based on astronomical planes and associated nodes. An
overriding feature seems to be where a heavenly body changes its
orientation (move from above to below or vice versa) with respect to an
astronomic plane. This may simplify astrological theory to a few first
principles based on tidal resonance and astronomical planes/nodes.
9 - Megalithic Stones
Stonehenge and the 56 year panic cycle can be firmly linked to the number
56 and to diurnal cycles of solar and lunar risings and settings.
The number 56 shows up very strongly in the layout of Stonehenge. There
are 56 Aubrey holes in a circle surrounding the complex. Additionally, the
winter solstice full Moon rises over Stone D in a 56 year cycle every
19, 19, 18 years.
56 tropical years almost exactly equals 59 nodical years. The number 59
also plays a key role in the layout. 59 holes are to be found in the X and
Y circles between the stone structure and the Aubrey holes. There are also
59 blue stones in the bluestone circle in the inner part of the complex.
The numbers showing up in the 56 year cycle are also evident at some of
the other megalithic sites. However, so many numbers may be given
importance to both the megaliths and the 56 year panic cycle that any
meaningful interpretation is impossible.
for building megalithic stones based on lunisolar alignments was probably
imported from a more advanced civilisation, probably in the Middle East.
Any connection between the 56 year panic cycle of modern times and
Stonehenge is purely tentative and no evidence can be presented to support
such a claim.
