Nostradamus : The Present

In hindsight, when you read these stanzas , a lot will seem so obvious. But then, hindsight has always got 20/ 20 vision.

In the year 1999, in the seventh month,
from the sky will come the great King of Terror,
bringing back to life the great King of the Mongols.
Before and after, Mars to reign by good fortune.

Perhaps it was just another example of Nostradamus being off with the date. I say perhaps, because of the alternative - remember how Nostradamus often wrote in anagrams ? Now look at 1999 as a numeric anagram. If we reverse the order of the “1”s and “9”s, we arrive at 9111 or 9-11-1 (the date of the 9-11 attacks). Coincidence ? More astonishingly, consider this. What on Earth was this guy imagining back then when he suggested "from the sky will come the great King of terror" that could possibly be deemed a hoax by skeptics ?
Even more frightening is the following quatrain.

At forty-five degrees, the sky will burn,
Fire approaches the great new city,
Immediately a huge, scattered flame leaps up
When they want to have verification from the Norman (Century 5 Quatrain 97)

Take forty-five degrees as a latitude. Experts agree this could only be New York ( 40 degrees 5 ). Of all the possibilities that this 15th century physician could think of, speaking of the sky burning ( the Twin towers in their final moments ) is uncanny. The verification from the Norman may be a reference to France’s refusal to support the Iraq War.

Earth-shaking fire from the center of the earth.
will cause the towers around the New City to shake,
Two great rocks for a long time will make war,
And then Arethusa (a ship) will color a new river red. (Century 1, Quatrain 87)

TheNew City, which may be New York City and “the towers” which are an obvious reference to the 9/11 attack of the twin towers are easily understood. The second half is more intruiging. Arethusa is thought to be an anagram for an event / ship that we have yet to see. Is it "Are the USA ?", "Earth USA" or something else we have not deciphered yet ?

The king will want to enter the new city,
Through its enemies they will come to subdue it
Captives liberated to speak and act falsely,
King to be outside, he will keep far from the enemy. (Century 10, Quatrain 49)

As is going on presently - even though Iraq and Afghanistan is 'won', the 'King' or President Bush has no alternative but to stay away.

A great number will be condemned
When the monarchs will be reconciled:
But for one of them such a bad impediment will arise
That they will be joined together but loosely. (Century 2, Quatrain 36)

This describes the downfall or unpopularity of on one of the leaders ( Bushy boy ? ) --as the leader with the impediment (lack of support from his people, joined together, but loosely.)
The quatrain below talks of how World War III may be closer than we think. Its arrival is heralded after the fall of the Republican Party in the United States.

One year before the Italian conflict,
Germans, Gauls, Spaniards for the fort:
The republican schoolhouse will fall,
There, except for a few, they will be choked dead. (Century 2, Quatrain 38.)

The Republican schoolhouse is the U.S. government, presently on its way out. After the Republican government in the United States is voted out of a power, things are set to get nasty. It's interesting to note that 450 years ago, Nostradamus would talk of a Republican group at a time when USA had yet to be formed.

In Quatrain Number 62 in Century 2, Nostradamus speaks possibly about the assassination of President Bush, according to most experts.

Mabus then will soon die, there will come
Of people and beasts a horrible rout:
Then suddenly one will see vengeance,
Hundred, hand, thirst, hunger when the comet will run.

Some scholars of Nostradamus interpret Mabus to mean Mr. Bush. Mabus = Mr Bush ? or eerily enough, via anagrams Usam B ( Osama B ).
Other options - Mabus = osaMA,BUSh ?. Or is it ust an anagram for Musab as in Abu Musab al zaraqawi
The comet ? There are several comets flying by in the next few years. One of them is Comet S-W3 73P, which will be closest to the Earth around May 13, 2006. Another significant connection is that this comet was discovered in 1930 during Hitler’s rise to power.
Usually these predictions take place within a year or two of the original date. Only time will tell.



  1. Do Better Research!!!
    Nostradamus Century 1 Verse 87 published in 1998 (pre 9-11) reads like this: "Ennofigee feu du centre de terre Fera trembler un tour de cite neufue"
    which means "earthshaking fire from the center of the earth Will shake a tower in the New City"
    The tower is in singular.
    Before 9-11 it was interpreted as an earquake in NY area. Red rivers in the 4th line were thought of as lava.
    Loosely interpreted, if we want to apply the first 2 lines to 9-11 it would mean that the fire of an eruption came not from the attack in the sky but from under the ground. It would look really sinister if we were to say that the tower(s) collapsed from an implosion. History channel had an hour show about planned implosions - the buildings collapse in a very organized fasion - just like the twin towers did. Is Nostradamus implying that the "terrorist" attack came from the basements?


So...what did you think ?
