Uranus 18° Cycle

Cowan calls Uranus the "market master". Indeed, we saw here that it is Uranus' 72° harmonics that drive the 17-year stock market cycle.

Thursday (April 5) will be a geocentric Uranus 18° cycle, a minor cycle but a major planet.

Uranus makes its heliocentric 18° harmonic on May 23.

Be warned however that Uranus is a very slow moving planet, so the dates should be taken only as approximations. I have seen a few Cowan researchers pinpoint the heliocentric date to May 15 based on modern market extremes.


  1. How about Sunday,May 20 2012, the day of a solar annular eclipse?

    The next total eclipse in the USA is in the year 2017.
    Until then, May 20th of this year will have to do.

  2. For your consideration (no need to post, since it's not directly astro information, but does cue in to Cowan's scenario):
    One has to ask: "WHEN in history has a new high in stock market approaching the ATH ever been seen while retail (that's the Joe Public crowd) fleeing that very market in droves for years?"
    The answer is "never"!
    Joe Public never gets out at or even near the highs in any sector. He only gets in near the highs.
    This says stocks have higher to go yet, which will in fact eventually be the magnet that draws Joe back into stocks at the higher prices.

    The only "flight" by retail has been INTO bonds!

    Another way to say it is the smart money (institutional) has ALWAYS handed off (sold out) to the latecomer bagholder, Joe Public, in every sector-that's how Wall Street cleans out every fresh batch of rubes.

    What possible scenario is there then shaping up now to ensure that happens? How about bonds falling in price= yields up, cleaning out the public bond ETF holders who've been buying in late at the highs, who then flee into stocks to run them up even more (perhaps way more= Cowan's scenario?)?

    1. Very nice summary of what we should expect.

    2. Anonymous, love your comments. The great bull market of the 50's and 60's peaked in 1966. By the late sixty's and early 70's the public started getting out and kept getting out until the late 1980's. So they are following a similar pattern to then, a long term loss of confidence in the mkt. So their reluctance now is not necessarily a sign of a bottom. Also, corp and junk bonds yields have not gotten down to levels seen in the late 1940's so if Greece, Ireland, and/or Portugal leave the Euro, one more big rally in bonds is possible along with a strong $, weak stk mkt, and commodity crash.

  3. So far so good for uranus I would say. We seem to be getting the downward trend change here. Let's see if it lasst and then reverses in late May. Joe

    1. It seems that way but I wouldn't be surprised to see it bottom out soon and then head up into May.

    2. Changing my mind here... May should be a bottom but I imagine we will re-test the highs (probably twice) before sinking to lower lows in May.

  4. Looking at the geo transits of outer planets is one way of getting a feel for the trends during the year. For 2012 and 2013, March 2012 high, May-June 2012 low, mid July 2012 is either a high or a low, mid August 2012 is also a high or a low, late Sept. 2012 low, October 2012 high, Nov (11/23?)-Dec (12/18?)2012 low, 1/4/2013 high, early Feb. 2013 low, late March 2013 high, May - June 2013 low, Major high July 2013, downtrend into Oct. 2013, high to Thanksgiving 2013 and low mid to late Dec. 2013.
    Then Cowan's May 2012 turn would be a low and high mid year 2013 high would come in July 2013.

  5. Another possible date for Cowan's 666 Panic high:
    Whether a fast burn up in the markets, or slow, or not at all, here'a another way:
    Steve Williams excellent site:


    Scroll down to this one. DOW Mo Infl-Adjusted
    This appears to be a more exact version of the oft-quoted "17-year" cycle mentioned by gurus like Jimmy Rogers.

    I mentioned before that 17.6 years is the difference exactly between the orbits of Jupiter and Saturn!
    (Note it inverts, so it's really a 35.2-Year Cycle.)
    If Steve is correct and 2017.6 will be this low due, then we can go back to find other 666 panic highs.

    Well, there was a gigantic one in MAY 1837, which led to losses of 99% in land around the new midwest beehive of that time, Chicago.
    This was accompanied by a hellish 5 year long deep depression then.
    Calculating where there was a 17.6-Year low then is easy--it was in 1841.6.
    That is simply 10 cycles ago of 17.6 WRT 2017.6 .
    So, that's 176 years ago for that panic placement, which means 1837 + 176= 2013!
    Maybe MAY 2013?

    1. thank you Anonymous. In looking at this, I'm noticing that half of this 176 year cycle (5 x 17.6) = 88 years. Adding 88 years to 1841.6 = 1929.6 - a very close hit to the September 3, 1929 high and ensuing panic. I haven't looked at other important high/low/panic dates but this one leaves open the possibility that a panic placement could be 2017.
