Would we not cry out as Nostradamus has in the second line? Alas, despite all these marvels, mankind does not balance technological discoveries with new revelations in spiritual consciousness. After the long 20 th century is finished the bad times return with a new conjunction in the sign of Aries, whose god, Mars, is that of war.

But occult teachings tell us there are two sides to every aspect. Mars, if he strives for consciousness and compassion, becomes the sacred magician, the spiritual teacher; he holds the firebrand of awareness, not war. The higher aspect of Mars tells us that if there must be turmoil in France, Italy and the world let it be a war against ignorance, superstition and stupid habits. Let it be a war against the conditioning of each new generation that causes them to unconsciously cling to fossilized moralities.

Mars the Magus tell us that the new millennium will require that we become new humanity. The maliciously aspected planets are Saturn and Mars conjunct in Scorpio. It was also the year that most of Europe came under his domination and Czar Alexander 1 of Russia struck up an alliance with Napoleon against the British.

This may be a continuation of 1 Q51 when the great people of France will be tormented in a future time, perhaps as soon as Imagine the preplexity of Nostradamus viewing our far looser interpretations of Christianity. No doubt the prophet had a hard enough time comprehending earlier advances such as paper money inovation, the Assignats of the French Revolution, the new source of which depended on wealth stolen from the clergy.

Equally possible is a new source of wealth coming from developed countries who will profit from their grain reserves in an overpopulated world as much as the petrol states of the Middle East will use its oil reserves as a political weapon in an energy starved world. Conventional wisdom would tag the scythe-bearer as Saturn, which exerted its negative influence in the French and Russian Revolutions. However, Saturn also has constructive ways of reflecting uncompromising change by being the planet of reality checks. In August , 74 years later a second Saturnian revolution exposed the social and political bankruptcy of the Bolshevik Utopia, signaling the disintegration of the Soviet bloc.

The death of Stalin made a near miss for Q54 a pivotal year in the Cold War and for communist hegemony, through the election of Nikita Khruschev could begin the de-Stalinization of Soviet society. Perhaps this prediction hints that the kind of change Nostradamus is referring to here is a form of democratic government which affirms that all people are created equal equal in favor to both sides.

A wider interpretation of the two revolutions of the hammer and sickle scythe sees them as disclosing the fates of the Russian and Chinese communist revolutions. Communism in those countries will completely collapse as a result of the Chinese and Russian efforts to democratize before the coming millennium, making a change in reign and centuries. If America or democracy is implied by the mobile sign of Libra, it could also foretell a time of chaos and crisis for global democracy in the near future.

One solution maybe a blend of the best aspects of democracy and communism. Through a synthesis of East and West, communism and democracy, socialism and capitalism. The first line is puzzling. It may apply to Paris, France which sometimes Nostradamus described as the Mesopotamia of Europe for the city is geographically defined by two rivers, the Seine and the Marne. The phrase can be applied equally to the region of modern day Mesopotamia Iraq , where the Tigris and Euphrates rivers flow. French forces played a large part in Operation Desert Storm. The massive allied airstrikes and the funeral shroud of burning Kuwaiti oil fields torched by retreating Iraqis did indeed make the heavens appear unjust on the land, sea and in the atmosphere people breathed.

The neighbouring kingdoms of the Gulf Sheiks, Jordanians and Saudis suffered terribly from the war and ecological disasters. At the time of writing, five years after the Gulf War, the cessation of hostilities has left only political uncertainity confusion in the Gulf, thousands of malnourished Iraqi children famine , and a future legacy of health problems and shortened life expectancy plagues due to petroleum pollution.

The future may look upon the blackened Mesopotamia of the Middle East taking its revenge on Paris, the Mesopotamia of Europe. In December Algerian terrorists held a dree rehearsal. During the tense siege three hostages were killed before the plane was permitted to fly to Marseilles. When they landed in the early hours of 26 December, the hijackers demanded 27 tons of fuel to fly to Paris a flight to Paris requires only 10 tons.

Later that afternoon they were overpowered and killed when anti-terrorist gendarmes hurled concussion grenades into the cockpit. Some of the hostages had overheard the terrorists talk about their plan to detonate the plane over Paris. If they had succeeded in flying out of Marseilles for Paris, the 42 ton Airbus with 15 tons of highly volatile jet fuel would have erupted into a giant gasoline bomb over central Paris, creating a conflagaration as catastrophic as a detonation of a tactical nuclear weapon.

The tons of flaming jet fuel would have set large areas of the city on fire. Gabreel Gabriel is the avenging angel of the Christian and the Islamic Apocalypse. As suggested in 10 Q72, the terror of the Middle Eastern Antichrist comes from the skies the heavens. This could therefore mean that nuclear fires from the skies from 10 Q72 will descend on the Western democratic powers as early as July of The quatrain indexing may target the year , which witnessed the first successful victory of Pan-Arab Nationalism against the West during the Suez Canal incident, when Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser nationalized the Suez canal and forced French and British forces to withdraw.

The face once anointed with milk and honey lies in the soil. This remarkable prophecy was written years before the event. Louis XVI mounted the scaffold, his eyes sweeping over the jerring mob below. Under his piercing gaze the drums and crowd fell silent and the deposed king began to protest his innocence in clear, steady tones. But the drums started to roll again and the executioner Sanson proceeded.

Louis had promised to remain in Paris but was caught escaping broken accord. Line 3 gives a vivid description of beheading bloody mouth will swim with blood. Louis had been crowned on the feast day of St Agnes, 21 January and in honor of that day his face was anointed with milk and honey. It is difficult for any interpreter to read the entrails of this quatrain. One could say that these two heads later became the empires of the Spanish and the Austrian Habsburgs. The Austrian Habsburgs would eventually adopt the two headed black eagle as their emblem. They are the routes of potential dangers and invasions: the first arm is in the Pyrences through Navarre, the Spanish Netherlands is the second; the invasion routes through Savoy and Italy are the third arm ; and those through the ports of the south of France the fourth.

Few monarchs were as cruel or sent more millions to oblivion than Stalin. They will say that from the sort of people that surround him,. Nostradamus foresaw the coming of three tryants whom he called Antichrist. These men, he warned, could move mankind towards total world destruction sometime shortly after the year The first of these is identified in this quatrain. Nostrdamus envisioned a bloody reign of a commoner dictator common advent of the people beginning in This man was destined to force the crowned heads of Europe to adopt his laws and strategies so they could defeat his revolutionary empire, an empire that would cost France 2 million men, to make and to lose.

As a consequence, the united Europe that defeated Napoleon became even more Napoleonic. Moreover, the First Antichrist succeeded in sterring European history towards the demise of monarchies, a development that set the geopolitical stage for the two future Antichrists. Nostradamus predicted that they would emerge in the s and s. An orthodox slant would construe this as another attack by Nostradamus on John Calvin, who was shepherd to the Protestant citizens of Geneva and de facto magistrate of a theocratic city-state.

Rather than stay with the mainstream theory I will pin this quatrain on the near future destiny of the Palestinian state, under its new and first president, Yasser Arafat. Perhaps he is assassinated. There seem to be few good leaders to replace him. A society that abandons its higher arts is like a tree that cuts off its own flowers. That society becomes impoverished and the tree will eventually come to a disaster. Nearly all great civilizations have begun their decline by throwing their pearls of their highest understanding into the maw of its swinish collective mind, its lowest common demonitator of values.

Hokum is holy. Excellence becomes a hostage of the majority vote. Popularity, not aesthetics, will dictate funding. The grammies and the oscars will be the only diploma respected. Whatever challenges our values or rattles our rationales will be deemed antisocial. Soon after that, it will be forgotten altogether. As Lynda S. The consequence is an even dumber generation succeeding the last, ruled by those chosen by the mobcracy because they are predictable and lower in quality than the mob itself. No prophecy could better describe the Cold War era. By Q63 , advances in medical science had almost eradicated the great killer diseases such as yellow fever, polio and smallpox.

The dawning jet age following the war paved the way for countless millions to travel safely through the skies to every continent over every ocean. Airline companies transported 1. Developments in communications technology facilitated contact between differnet peoples and cultures. For nearly half a century fear of the atomic bomb has prevented the power brokers of the world from punishing Earth with a third global war.

The struggle between the superpowers has been played out in the developing countries of the Third World. Superpower disagreements have boiled to the surface during a string of wars after Korea, Suez, Vietnam and a dozen other confrontations between the Arab nations and Israel or India and Pakistan. With the end of the Cold War, tensions are on the increase in the Third World as are a series of vicious wars arising out of the ethnic hotbeds in the former Communist bloc, the Second World.

More people flew around the world in than in any previous year, but the year also produced as increase in wars across the world. Between 30 to 32 conflicts are raging at the time of writing, the majority of them civil wars within national boundaries. The technological and medical advances foretold by Nostradamus have their darker consequences.

A drastic cut in infant mortality has spawned overpopulation. He records future battles of great air fleets, piloted by half pig men masked pilots. This could be either applied to the Battle of Britian, or it could be of the jets pilots in the Korean Vietnamese and Yom Kippur wars, Desert Storm and unfortunately coming air battles in the next few decades of the 21 st century. Child without [power] never was seen so great a thunderbolt,. On the summit fracutres, lightning flashes going is soundly trash,. During his incarceration in the Temple prison, Louis XVII, the Bourbon heir to the throne, was taken away from his mother and placed into the grubby hands of Simon the Cobbler.

He suffered lightning flashes of pain to numerous whippings and beatings. Simon was instructed to humble the young Dauphin and seemed to exult in the abuse, as if it were a game. The context of the word Nostradamus uses, oeuteuf, suggests that the quatrain figuratively describes a game of revenge. The last line could be either a representative image of aristocrats tied together by the waist being let to the guillotine or it specifically points to the three most important aristocratic victims of the Reign of Terror: Louis XVI, Louis XVII and Queen Marie Antoinette.

The description would then be poetic rather than factual, since the king and queen were not tied in this way and the Dauphin died in prison. A quatrain with a clear though private message. Because the recipient and the messenger have long since returned to dust, it is pointless to decipher it except to say that Pradelles is in Haute-Loire in east-central France; Montferrand is in the Puy-de-Dome; Viviers is on the west bank of the Rhone in Languedoc; and so is Tournon, about seven miles upstream from Valence. Will often turn [up in various places] then become universal:. It will be so vast and long-lasting that [people] will grab.

I once watched a documentary called The Birth of Europe. The segment portrayed the travails of the 13 th century, when European society suffered terrible plagues and wars because its numbers had swelled beyond the agricultural sustainability of the times. The first half of the century welcomed a series of bountiful harvests and good weather that instituted a sudden population increase. Then an abrupt climate change called the Little Ice Age visited Europe, causing skies to be darkened with unremiting rain for three straight years.

Europe suffered continetal crop faliures, followed by a great famine and finally by the Balck Death, the bubonic plague. Society was disrupted and the land was vexed by fundamentalist religious extremism and numerous wars over dwindling resources. The beleaguered all across the continent were convinced that the Apocalypse was at hand.

One empirical fact supports the prophetic vision of St John the Divine: the Black Death alone killed off one-third of the European population, and wars and famines reduced it further by half. As we approach the 21 st century, each day , people are born, more than 90, new motor vehicles hit the road, more than square miles of tropical rain forest are destroyed, 57,, metric tons of carbon dioxide contaminate the air and 40, children under the age of 5 die from humger or bacteria infested water.

With the end of Cold War the world becomes ever more enamored with the market side, high waste producing American lifestyle, yet our current global technologies and infrastructure and food sustainability can support a population of only 2. By the world population exceeded 5. Ninety million hungry and thirsty new consumers are born each year. By the new millennium this will increase to million each year.

In 20 years the population will reach 8 billion; in 50 years, 14 billion. Zero population growth reports undergoing a baby boom even greater than the one after World War II. By China could by itself eat up the world, since it will require all the current grain exports of the world. By , we will have to build a nuclear power plant every week to keep up with the energy demands of nearly a dozen billion people! The plaques, famines and droughts perdicted by Nostradamus have already begun and continue to be right on astrological schedule. The growing world drought and the spread of famine and hunger, especially in early s Africa, continues to remind a foot-dragging new world order that the greenhouse affect cannot be ignored.

I agree with Lamont that upon first impression this could be about the brutal murder of the Czar Nicholas and his family by Red Guards in Ekaterinburg, Siberia in Similar word links to poisoning exist in other Romanov murder quatrains such as 4 Q Sometimes it is prudent to avoid the habit of scholars who pin meanings of a quatrain to their own century. Perhaps this one is about the 16 th.

If one adds an n and e to tourment the line could also be read Oh what a horrible and ill-starred tournament. Henry II suffered the torment of a mortal wound in a tournament in see 1 Q With the addition of letters to one word the fog is burned with adult responsibilites and kingship far too soon. Novelists enjoy saying that Charles IX was poisoned, but no definite proof exists; Francis II died from the fainting sickness shortly after the death of his father; and Henry III was assassinated.

The last two lines may suddenly change the subject, as Nostradamus commonly does. It is a documented fact that while the Czar, his family and retainers waited in the basement, their executioners, sitting upstairs, were drinking heavily to fortify themselves while they loaded their pistols. His jailers had known for a while about the treasonous act, or order for their execution, and they preserved the secret until the very last moment when the guards appeared at the door with barrels raised and pistol hammers ready to fall. In March , retired geologist turned asteroid hunter Dr Henry Holt studied photos taken by the inch Schmidt telescopes at Mt Palomat Obesrvatory in California and discovered an asteroid between and feet in diameter which he labeled FC.

Still, many scientists believe Asteroid FC or a cosmic fragment of similar proportions will eventually score a hit. Khomeini was subsequently exiled to Iraq, where he began his year struggle to forge his fundamentalist movement. The final line is reflective. Perhaps the Islamic Revolution that followed was a sign to the Shah that he had pushed his people too hard and too fast into the modern world. Since , the Iranian people have suffered continued deprivation, natural disasters, and the loss of a million people in wars and revolution.

A earthquake in northern Iran killed 45,, injured , and left nearly a half million people homeless. Cheetham found this one irritating and undecipherable. I would meet them halfway. The prophet saw Spain and Genoa, allied with the Turks and Barbary Corsairs, embarked on an expedition against Provence. But at what time? I think Nostradamus would sometimes misread the images when coming out of a trance. The process of moving from a subjective experienced in more fimilar grab.

He probably saw an invasion of Southern France but projected Muslims, Genovese and Spaniards onto a vision that more adequately describes Provence during its occupation by the Axis and during the Allied landings of World War II. For the next year the Italians occupied the French Alpine regions as far west as the Rhone river and as far south as Avignon. Later, in August , the Allied invasion fleet did set sail from bases in Italy. One could say by synecdoche that they are those of Pisa. Marseilles in particular Axis and Atles endured vicious street fighting or devastation, fire and steel , during the Allied invasion.

The outraged towns later belonged to the hated Vichy puppet government. It appears that Nostradamus foresaw the peaceful town and hills of his native Provence become a battlefield in a distant, future war. In , the great steel monsters firing and making tumult landed on the shores of Provence in Operation Dragoon. The forces of the Free French intially pushed the Germans out of Marseilles and all the way back to Lyons.

First let us examine this as a prophecy for our time. Line 2 covers the threat of Islamic fundamentalism to France in the guise of Iranian supported Algerian terrorists who nearly detonated an Air France passenger jet over Paris. Line 3 is Spain after having surrendered yielded its national identity to join the EU.

Line 4 is either some vague reference to Italy home of the Venetians backing out of NATO or it becomes a roadblock to my interpretation, detouring us back to the 16 th century for another try at this quatrain. The detour takes us to , a few short years after the publication of this quatrain, when the forces of Henry II faced a military disaster at St Quentin. One botched adventure followed another and France was under assault on five fronts.

Spanish fleets harassed her from the west coast, where their English allies held a foothold on the continent at Calais. Italy was the fifth front and had been the main theater of war between the Valois and Habsburgs for 50 years. But these Barbary Corsairs were hardly stirred up by the Persians, unless North Africa indirectly stands for the entire Ottoman Empire during its civil war in The Persians Iranians of today are definitely stirring the pot of North African Islamic extremism in our time.

After tarrying they will move forward by rowing for Epirus,. The black curly haired one will strain hard for the Empire,. Italian forces crossed the Adriatic to conquer Albania early in the war. From there they attacked western Greece Epirus in October They mostly advanced from Iraq towards the west. Nostradamus gives us two Barbarossas. The conventional version is his contemporary, the pirate leader of the Barbary Corsairs. The unconventional one is Adolf Hitler, after his favorite medieval German king, Fredrick Barbarossa. The first Barbarossa would die in , a few years after this quatrain was published.

He was not burned on a spit, whereas the second Barbarossa came pretty close to being. This could be a future strategic attack on the Middle East via Greece through Turkey contemplated as an alternative by Hitler. Acting on it depended on the Turks joining the Axis Alliance which they never did.

This has something to do with the Italian intrigues of Henery II during the mid-to-late s. Siena was a free city, allied to France against its chief adversary, the Florentines. The garrison sent by the French to Siena capitulated in April , about a week before Les Propheties were published and well after this quatrain was written. The standard of the city of Ancona was that of the Papal States, to which it had belonged since Then to a great people [the French] he will speak in words and deeds,.

Clues to unlock a quatrain can come in surprising places. The key to a Nostradamus mystery is found. Le Pelletier is the first to unravel the ferocious name of the man forseen here. Napoleon could not proceed with his planned invasion of England. This would create a fatal strategic setback. This led to his disastrous war with Russia in By his empire collapsed. Lord Nelson died in the battle of Trafalgar. On his flagship, HMS Victory, black sails were unfurled for her homeward voyage. The hapless Villeneuve was captured in the battle. The older chief is Henery II. Charles IX is the child in question.

As a fully grown chief king of France he was feared by his sister Marguerite. Marguerite was further compromised by her sometime lover, the chief of the Catholic Leaguers, Henry de Guise who plotted against her new Huguenot husband while scheming against her degenerate brothers, Charles IX and the Duc de Anjou the future Henry III. Many of these battles were won or lost by calvary attacks soldiers on horses. All these towns are in the south-west France and are watered by the Garonne river except for Bayonne.

According to Leoni there is a widely disputed theory that the town of Condom, like the inventor Thomas Crapper, had its name immortalized for its association with a naughty bit or two. The rest of the quatrain describes a prophylactic defense of another kind. Then a divine portent of a very hideous beast will be born,. March, April, May, June, great bandaging [of wounds] and decapitating. The constellation of Vingo is implied in line 1. Burgundy is the scene of too many wars to make a definite interpretation, although conflicts that thunder could apply to artillery barrages of the 20 th century.

Now all we need is to find a modern battle harvesting deaths in the hills of Burgundy during the month of harvests, September zodiacal Virgo. This leaves us only one choice. The final line takes us into the first half of , where Nostradamus may have foreseen the final titanic battles of World War II: the Ruhr Pocket, Berlin and Okinawa. A decade later Erika Cheetham boldly went where Leoni had never gone before, firing off the hypothesis that this quatrain is about the death of the three Soviet cosmonaughts of Soyuz XI.

However her idea that the three Greek letters Kappa, Thita and Lamda are the intials of the three cosmonauts, Dobrovolsky, Patasayev and Volkov however is unfortunately a crash of another kind. Still I believe Leoni was on the right track: a space disaster is foretold here. On 28 January , 71 seconds after lift off, the US space shuttle Challenger exploded.

The tragedy witnessed by shocked millions around the world was caused by the leakage of volatile gas from the left solid rocket booster. Seven astronauts were killed in the explosion. The inquiry revealed flaws in the shuttle itself and in command decision-making separated from judgement and counsel. The final line is a riddle of Greek letters has puzzled interpreters for centuries. This could stand for the rocket manufacturer, Morton Thiokol Inc. Neither management nor NASA officials took much interest in the doubts expressed asbout the booster design by junior egineers at Morton Thiokol Inc.

In the scandal many company heads and egineers, along with a number of senior NASA officials, were fired banished and scattered. How does one unravel the riddle of columns of timber trembling? Are they wooden-walled fortresses under an artillery barrage?

Land of the Roaring Lion by Kenneth Baird

Are they logging convoys or forests trembling from an earthquake? If this is a prophecy in past tense for us, the trembling trimbles could be the oars of Turkish galleys on the moves, or the earth trembling under a great army of Turks emerging from the Austrian forests near Vienna in to lay a second siege on a city that had been a Christian outpost of Eastern Europe since In both case they failed to win the city.

But if we move into prophecy, future tense, the shivering timbers are from future earthquakes in central Europe. Around the turn of the century chaotic weather patterns caused by the greenhouse effect introduced a string of droughts across Southern Europe. The hot Mistral South Wind blows through a desicated Provence. The wind is colored by the red smoke of catastrophic forest fires along the Riviera all the way down through Spain.

A great multitude drawn off may be the same victims of the global plague described in the Epistle, which carries off two-thirds of humanity. Pherhaps it is the blood plague described in several quatrains that is caused by HIV, the Ebola virus or radiation from widening ozone holes in the atmosphere. Perhaps Mother Nature is using a number of ways to draw off a todentlike population explosion of humans in the first half of the 21 st century. Saturn in Mars represent the cabalistic colors black into red.

A contemporary slant would take these to represent the Spanish. For the 20 th century it would stand for the fascists of Mussolini the black shirts against the Red Soviets. On 16 December , three Soviet armies charged across the frozen Don river, along a mile front guarded by the Italian Eighth Army. Over half of the , men from Tuscany and Rome were killed or wounded and 60, survivors were captured.

The last line could chronicle the successes of Greek communist red and non communist guerrillas against the Italian and German occupation forces when they coordinated careful strikes s of sabotage, clumintaing in the destruction of the vital Gorgopotamos railway bridge on 5 November This is the first of the three quatrains that give a relatively clear, but unheeded, warning for the near perfect date of the assassination of the Duc de Berri outside the Paris Opera. The murder of the Bourbon heir apparent is accurately forseen in 1 Q96 as taking place on the night of 13 February This date is supported by the astrological information in line 1 of this quatrain.

The moon was indeed in a profound shadow on that night; according to American astrologer Dan Oldenburg there occurred a new moon at 9 pm Paris time on February 13! Line 2 concerns Charles X, the father of the Duc de Berri and the brother of Louis XVI, who was executed by guillotine in the French Revolution his brother becomes the color of stained blood.

The phrase profound shadows could also be a description of the assassin, Louvel, waiting outside the Paris Opera in the shadows, dagger in hand. Louvel leapt upon de Berri as he was helping his wife into the carriage. As the grooms qucikly dragged the assassin away, the duke looked down in horror at his own hand gripping the dagger buried up to the hilt.

The fearful ambassadors take their lives into their own hands:. The greater of the brothers will double disguise his action,. Two of them will die through anger, hatred and envy. See 3 Q51 for part one. His sword and scabbard were entangled in his cloak and he could not reach them in time. Quick hands darting in and out of the lightning flashes caught hold of his arms and neck; other hands thrust five poniard blows into his chest, neck and groin. The next day she awoke from her afternoon nap to see her son by her bedside, consulting with her physician, Dr Cavriana, who was assuring him that she was doing well and taking her medicine.

His reply would give her cause to go to her grave. Monsieur de Guise is dead. He will be heard of no more. I have had him killed. Did her mind turn back the pages of her life to all her warnings and prophecies of doom for the House of Valois? Did she think again for her occult heraldic device of the Serpent clapsing its tail in its teeth? The serpent ring stands for ultimate power, such as that she wielded often down through the years as regent, preparing her boys for the throne. The power they held was unbalanced, like the serpent that, in devouring his own tail, eats itself up completely.

Now as she heard her favorite and final son finish explaining his actions, one can only wonder if she thought her son was yet another power-mad and hungry serpent beginning a feast of himself. At the time the king scarcely acknowledged her response and revitalized by the elixir of revenge, left the room. But a short time later he would be at great pains to remember her warning to set his affairs in order, for his actions, as foreseen by Nostradamus, would see him assassinated in the following year. This completes a deed so dastardly that Catholic France unites against their own Catholic king.

The fearful ambassadors take their lives into their own hands. They direct all their support to the surviving brother Charles, the Duc de Mayenne. This could therefore mean that nuclear fires from the skies from 10 Q72 will descend on the Western democratic powers as early as July of The quatrain indexing may target the year , which witnessed the first successful victory of Pan-Arab Nationalism against the West during the Suez Canal incident, when Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser nationalized the Suez canal and forced French and British forces to withdraw.

Because the recipient and the messenger have long since returned to dust, it is pointless to decipher it except to say that Pradelles is in Haute-Loire in east-central France; Montferrand is in the Puy-de-Dome; Viviers is on the west bank of the Rhone in Languedoc; and so is Tournon, about seven miles upstream from Valence.

Will often turn [up in various places] then become universal:. It will be so vast and long-lasting that [people] will grab. I once watched a documentary called The Birth of Europe. The segment portrayed the travails of the 13 th century, when European society suffered terrible plagues and wars because its numbers had swelled beyond the agricultural sustainability of the times. The first half of the century welcomed a series of bountiful harvests and good weather that instituted a sudden population increase.

Then an abrupt climate change called the Little Ice Age visited Europe, causing skies to be darkened with unremiting rain for three straight years. Europe suffered continetal crop faliures, followed by a great famine and finally by the Balck Death, the bubonic plague.

Society was disrupted and the land was vexed by fundamentalist religious extremism and numerous wars over dwindling resources. The beleaguered all across the continent were convinced that the Apocalypse was at hand. One empirical fact supports the prophetic vision of St John the Divine: the Black Death alone killed off one-third of the European population, and wars and famines reduced it further by half.

As we approach the 21 st century, each day , people are born, more than 90, new motor vehicles hit the road, more than square miles of tropical rain forest are destroyed, 57,, metric tons of carbon dioxide contaminate the air and 40, children under the age of 5 die from humger or bacteria infested water. With the end of Cold War the world becomes ever more enamored with the market side, high waste producing American lifestyle, yet our current global technologies and infrastructure and food sustainability can support a population of only 2.

By the world population exceeded 5. Ninety million hungry and thirsty new consumers are born each year. By the new millennium this will increase to million each year. In 20 years the population will reach 8 billion; in 50 years, 14 billion. Zero population growth reports undergoing a baby boom even greater than the one after World War II. By China could by itself eat up the world, since it will require all the current grain exports of the world. By , we will have to build a nuclear power plant every week to keep up with the energy demands of nearly a dozen billion people!

The plaques, famines and droughts perdicted by Nostradamus have already begun and continue to be right on astrological schedule. The growing world drought and the spread of famine and hunger, especially in early s Africa, continues to remind a foot-dragging new world order that the greenhouse affect cannot be ignored. I agree with Lamont that upon first impression this could be about the brutal murder of the Czar Nicholas and his family by Red Guards in Ekaterinburg, Siberia in Similar word links to poisoning exist in other Romanov murder quatrains such as 4 Q Sometimes it is prudent to avoid the habit of scholars who pin meanings of a quatrain to their own century.

Perhaps this one is about the 16 th. If one adds an n and e to tourment the line could also be read Oh what a horrible and ill-starred tournament. Henry II suffered the torment of a mortal wound in a tournament in see 1 Q With the addition of letters to one word the fog is burned with adult responsibilites and kingship far too soon.

Novelists enjoy saying that Charles IX was poisoned, but no definite proof exists; Francis II died from the fainting sickness shortly after the death of his father; and Henry III was assassinated. The last two lines may suddenly change the subject, as Nostradamus commonly does. It is a documented fact that while the Czar, his family and retainers waited in the basement, their executioners, sitting upstairs, were drinking heavily to fortify themselves while they loaded their pistols.

His jailers had known for a while about the treasonous act, or order for their execution, and they preserved the secret until the very last moment when the guards appeared at the door with barrels raised and pistol hammers ready to fall. In March , retired geologist turned asteroid hunter Dr Henry Holt studied photos taken by the inch Schmidt telescopes at Mt Palomat Obesrvatory in California and discovered an asteroid between and feet in diameter which he labeled FC. Still, many scientists believe Asteroid FC or a cosmic fragment of similar proportions will eventually score a hit.

Khomeini was subsequently exiled to Iraq, where he began his year struggle to forge his fundamentalist movement. The final line is reflective. Perhaps the Islamic Revolution that followed was a sign to the Shah that he had pushed his people too hard and too fast into the modern world.

Since , the Iranian people have suffered continued deprivation, natural disasters, and the loss of a million people in wars and revolution. A earthquake in northern Iran killed 45,, injured , and left nearly a half million people homeless. Cheetham found this one irritating and undecipherable. I would meet them halfway. The prophet saw Spain and Genoa, allied with the Turks and Barbary Corsairs, embarked on an expedition against Provence. But at what time? I think Nostradamus would sometimes misread the images when coming out of a trance.

The process of moving from a subjective experienced in more fimilar grab. He probably saw an invasion of Southern France but projected Muslims, Genovese and Spaniards onto a vision that more adequately describes Provence during its occupation by the Axis and during the Allied landings of World War II. For the next year the Italians occupied the French Alpine regions as far west as the Rhone river and as far south as Avignon.

The fate of the Nino Bixio

Later, in August , the Allied invasion fleet did set sail from bases in Italy. One could say by synecdoche that they are those of Pisa. Marseilles in particular Axis and Atles endured vicious street fighting or devastation, fire and steel , during the Allied invasion. The outraged towns later belonged to the hated Vichy puppet government. It appears that Nostradamus foresaw the peaceful town and hills of his native Provence become a battlefield in a distant, future war. In , the great steel monsters firing and making tumult landed on the shores of Provence in Operation Dragoon.

The forces of the Free French intially pushed the Germans out of Marseilles and all the way back to Lyons. First let us examine this as a prophecy for our time. Line 2 covers the threat of Islamic fundamentalism to France in the guise of Iranian supported Algerian terrorists who nearly detonated an Air France passenger jet over Paris. Line 3 is Spain after having surrendered yielded its national identity to join the EU. Line 4 is either some vague reference to Italy home of the Venetians backing out of NATO or it becomes a roadblock to my interpretation, detouring us back to the 16 th century for another try at this quatrain.

The detour takes us to , a few short years after the publication of this quatrain, when the forces of Henry II faced a military disaster at St Quentin.

  • One botched adventure followed another and France was under assault on five fronts. Spanish fleets harassed her from the west coast, where their English allies held a foothold on the continent at Calais. Italy was the fifth front and had been the main theater of war between the Valois and Habsburgs for 50 years. But these Barbary Corsairs were hardly stirred up by the Persians, unless North Africa indirectly stands for the entire Ottoman Empire during its civil war in The Persians Iranians of today are definitely stirring the pot of North African Islamic extremism in our time.

    After tarrying they will move forward by rowing for Epirus,. The black curly haired one will strain hard for the Empire,. Italian forces crossed the Adriatic to conquer Albania early in the war. From there they attacked western Greece Epirus in October They mostly advanced from Iraq towards the west. Nostradamus gives us two Barbarossas. The conventional version is his contemporary, the pirate leader of the Barbary Corsairs.

    The unconventional one is Adolf Hitler, after his favorite medieval German king, Fredrick Barbarossa. The first Barbarossa would die in , a few years after this quatrain was published. He was not burned on a spit, whereas the second Barbarossa came pretty close to being. This could be a future strategic attack on the Middle East via Greece through Turkey contemplated as an alternative by Hitler. Acting on it depended on the Turks joining the Axis Alliance which they never did. This has something to do with the Italian intrigues of Henery II during the mid-to-late s.

    Siena was a free city, allied to France against its chief adversary, the Florentines. The garrison sent by the French to Siena capitulated in April , about a week before Les Propheties were published and well after this quatrain was written. The standard of the city of Ancona was that of the Papal States, to which it had belonged since Then to a great people [the French] he will speak in words and deeds,.

    Clues to unlock a quatrain can come in surprising places. The key to a Nostradamus mystery is found. Le Pelletier is the first to unravel the ferocious name of the man forseen here. Napoleon could not proceed with his planned invasion of England. This would create a fatal strategic setback.

    This led to his disastrous war with Russia in By his empire collapsed. Lord Nelson died in the battle of Trafalgar. On his flagship, HMS Victory, black sails were unfurled for her homeward voyage. The hapless Villeneuve was captured in the battle. The older chief is Henery II. Charles IX is the child in question. As a fully grown chief king of France he was feared by his sister Marguerite. Marguerite was further compromised by her sometime lover, the chief of the Catholic Leaguers, Henry de Guise who plotted against her new Huguenot husband while scheming against her degenerate brothers, Charles IX and the Duc de Anjou the future Henry III.

    Many of these battles were won or lost by calvary attacks soldiers on horses. All these towns are in the south-west France and are watered by the Garonne river except for Bayonne. According to Leoni there is a widely disputed theory that the town of Condom, like the inventor Thomas Crapper, had its name immortalized for its association with a naughty bit or two. The rest of the quatrain describes a prophylactic defense of another kind.

    Then a divine portent of a very hideous beast will be born,. March, April, May, June, great bandaging [of wounds] and decapitating. The constellation of Vingo is implied in line 1. Burgundy is the scene of too many wars to make a definite interpretation, although conflicts that thunder could apply to artillery barrages of the 20 th century. Now all we need is to find a modern battle harvesting deaths in the hills of Burgundy during the month of harvests, September zodiacal Virgo. This leaves us only one choice. The final line takes us into the first half of , where Nostradamus may have foreseen the final titanic battles of World War II: the Ruhr Pocket, Berlin and Okinawa.

    A decade later Erika Cheetham boldly went where Leoni had never gone before, firing off the hypothesis that this quatrain is about the death of the three Soviet cosmonaughts of Soyuz XI. However her idea that the three Greek letters Kappa, Thita and Lamda are the intials of the three cosmonauts, Dobrovolsky, Patasayev and Volkov however is unfortunately a crash of another kind. Still I believe Leoni was on the right track: a space disaster is foretold here. On 28 January , 71 seconds after lift off, the US space shuttle Challenger exploded.

    The tragedy witnessed by shocked millions around the world was caused by the leakage of volatile gas from the left solid rocket booster. Seven astronauts were killed in the explosion. The inquiry revealed flaws in the shuttle itself and in command decision-making separated from judgement and counsel.

    The final line is a riddle of Greek letters has puzzled interpreters for centuries. This could stand for the rocket manufacturer, Morton Thiokol Inc. Neither management nor NASA officials took much interest in the doubts expressed asbout the booster design by junior egineers at Morton Thiokol Inc. In the scandal many company heads and egineers, along with a number of senior NASA officials, were fired banished and scattered. How does one unravel the riddle of columns of timber trembling? Are they wooden-walled fortresses under an artillery barrage? Are they logging convoys or forests trembling from an earthquake?

    If this is a prophecy in past tense for us, the trembling trimbles could be the oars of Turkish galleys on the moves, or the earth trembling under a great army of Turks emerging from the Austrian forests near Vienna in to lay a second siege on a city that had been a Christian outpost of Eastern Europe since In both case they failed to win the city. But if we move into prophecy, future tense, the shivering timbers are from future earthquakes in central Europe.

    Around the turn of the century chaotic weather patterns caused by the greenhouse effect introduced a string of droughts across Southern Europe. The hot Mistral South Wind blows through a desicated Provence. The wind is colored by the red smoke of catastrophic forest fires along the Riviera all the way down through Spain. A great multitude drawn off may be the same victims of the global plague described in the Epistle, which carries off two-thirds of humanity.

    Pherhaps it is the blood plague described in several quatrains that is caused by HIV, the Ebola virus or radiation from widening ozone holes in the atmosphere. Perhaps Mother Nature is using a number of ways to draw off a todentlike population explosion of humans in the first half of the 21 st century. Saturn in Mars represent the cabalistic colors black into red. A contemporary slant would take these to represent the Spanish. For the 20 th century it would stand for the fascists of Mussolini the black shirts against the Red Soviets.

    The Windless Valley of the Roaring Lion (Survivors Book 1)

    On 16 December , three Soviet armies charged across the frozen Don river, along a mile front guarded by the Italian Eighth Army. Over half of the , men from Tuscany and Rome were killed or wounded and 60, survivors were captured. The last line could chronicle the successes of Greek communist red and non communist guerrillas against the Italian and German occupation forces when they coordinated careful strikes s of sabotage, clumintaing in the destruction of the vital Gorgopotamos railway bridge on 5 November This is the first of the three quatrains that give a relatively clear, but unheeded, warning for the near perfect date of the assassination of the Duc de Berri outside the Paris Opera.

    The murder of the Bourbon heir apparent is accurately forseen in 1 Q96 as taking place on the night of 13 February This date is supported by the astrological information in line 1 of this quatrain. The moon was indeed in a profound shadow on that night; according to American astrologer Dan Oldenburg there occurred a new moon at 9 pm Paris time on February 13! Line 2 concerns Charles X, the father of the Duc de Berri and the brother of Louis XVI, who was executed by guillotine in the French Revolution his brother becomes the color of stained blood. The phrase profound shadows could also be a description of the assassin, Louvel, waiting outside the Paris Opera in the shadows, dagger in hand.

    Louvel leapt upon de Berri as he was helping his wife into the carriage. As the grooms qucikly dragged the assassin away, the duke looked down in horror at his own hand gripping the dagger buried up to the hilt. The fearful ambassadors take their lives into their own hands:. The greater of the brothers will double disguise his action,. Two of them will die through anger, hatred and envy. See 3 Q51 for part one. His sword and scabbard were entangled in his cloak and he could not reach them in time. Quick hands darting in and out of the lightning flashes caught hold of his arms and neck; other hands thrust five poniard blows into his chest, neck and groin.

    The next day she awoke from her afternoon nap to see her son by her bedside, consulting with her physician, Dr Cavriana, who was assuring him that she was doing well and taking her medicine. His reply would give her cause to go to her grave. Monsieur de Guise is dead. He will be heard of no more. I have had him killed. Did her mind turn back the pages of her life to all her warnings and prophecies of doom for the House of Valois? Did she think again for her occult heraldic device of the Serpent clapsing its tail in its teeth?

    The serpent ring stands for ultimate power, such as that she wielded often down through the years as regent, preparing her boys for the throne. The power they held was unbalanced, like the serpent that, in devouring his own tail, eats itself up completely. Now as she heard her favorite and final son finish explaining his actions, one can only wonder if she thought her son was yet another power-mad and hungry serpent beginning a feast of himself. At the time the king scarcely acknowledged her response and revitalized by the elixir of revenge, left the room.

    But a short time later he would be at great pains to remember her warning to set his affairs in order, for his actions, as foreseen by Nostradamus, would see him assassinated in the following year. This completes a deed so dastardly that Catholic France unites against their own Catholic king. The fearful ambassadors take their lives into their own hands. They direct all their support to the surviving brother Charles, the Duc de Mayenne. The greater of the brothers will double his action.

    Mayenne accomplishes the double disguise by taking both titles held separately by his brothers: Lieutenant General of France and Commander of the Catholic League. The two are Henry de Guise and Cardinal Louis, murdered by the jealous king. Upon a horse, totally vulnerable, she will pass over the river,.

    Mary Stuart had thoroughly outraged her Catholic subjects through her affair with the notorious Bothwell. She escaped prison only to see her army defeated at the Battle of Langside. This quatrain may reinforce others heralding as the earliest year for earthquakes. Volcanic eruptions corresponding with earthquakes are also hinted at the last line of this quatrain. Arethusa is a classical Greek nymph who in legend changed herself into a spring. By describing Arethusa as red Nostradamus warns us of lava flows.

    This may indicate that huge volcanic eruptions will hit major First World population centers from through the spring At the same time of writing a major eruption is expected near Martinique on the island of Montserrat. This quatrain pinpoints the beginning of troubles for Charles I of England as well as their outcome many years later. In Charles I declared on his wedding day that the persecution of Catholics in England should stop.

    Amundsen Coast

    His marriage to Catholic princess further rubbed their Puritan noses in what they condemned as his papist intrigues divine wrath again. Twenty-four years later communication between king and Parliament broke and civil war ensued. If this predicts the conquest of France by Spain, then it is a complete failure. Several modern scholars have tried to piece together a complete teacup prophecy out of a few broken fragments. Fontbrune grabs another broken shard and by extension turns Spanish Habsburgs into Prussian soldiers surrounding Bazaine at Metz during the the Franco-Prussian War in He reasons well that the war was fought over the Spanish succession, but no Spanish soldier fired a shot at a Frenchman, much less slaughtered an appreciable proportion of the population.

    When a hideous monster [or divine omen] will be born near Orgo. The description of a divine omen visiting France through the medium of a two-headed and generally hideous newborn babe is similar to the monster in 1 Q Langon is 30 miles south-east of Bordeaux, on the Garonne river. Orgon is a dozen miles north of Salon. The alarm is sounded across Provence and south-western France. But who is the invader? In Napoleon Bonaparte escaped from Elba and landed near Cannes with a band of 1, men. It is known that an effigy of Napoleon was burned in the public square at Orgon to protest his return.

    After taking power Napoleon was defeated at Waterloo in June. Bad weather played a role in his defeat the north wind will be against the French. The summer of is known as the summer that never came. A volcanic eruption in Indonesia was responsible for cooling the climate just enough to treat Europe to soggy and cold weather throughout the summer months.

    He was forced to wait six precious hours before the sun dried the field well enough to initiate a battle.

    See a Problem?

    Who are the gods? Are they merely to flotsam of poetic license or do they describe a future godlike human or alien race responslible for a war in the heaven of space. Are these sky gods partly responsible for some of the wars we humans wage in our times? Are they providing technology to certain terrestrial guinea-pig governments as one of many steps towards preparing humanity for open contact with an extraterrestrial civilization?

    Some quatrains are handed down from one application to another through the centuries. This one has suffered such a fate. Jaubert pins it on the War of Religion , the refusing town being Huguenot stronghold of La Rochelle, which fought off a vigorous siege in But the casualities are too inflated of that day.
