This paper explores cyclic commonalities evident in the timing of four phenomena – financial panics, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and Atlantic hurricanes. Surprisingly, a 9/56 year cycle could be established for all four categories. This cycle in turn could be strongly linked to Moon Sun tidal harmonics, which were hypothesized to activate critical events within 9/56 year patterns. Several lunisolar cycles aligned very closely at 9.0 and 56.0 solar years, thus providing theoretical support for a strong lunisolar influence. How this cycle actually functioned remained a mystery, as it falls outside prevailing paradigms in finance and the sciences. Further research breakthroughs have the potential to greatly increase the forecasting accuracy in the fields of finance, seismology, meteorology and volcanology. The 9/56 year cycle may show up in the timing of other critical phenomena, although this remains to be seen.
