As with anything astrological, everything’s open to interpretation. Nostradamus didn’t specify his quatrains to a specific point in time (they never do), so be sure to take these ‘predictions’ with a [very generous] pinch of salt.
World War Three and the assassination of Donald Trump.
We could be on the brink of WWIII. Before you panic too much, people have been anticipating this since 2002, but it’s yet to happen.In one quatrain, the seer writes there will be “seven and fifty peaceful years” between WWII and WWIII, but judging by this time line, WWIII should have started in 2002, not 17 years later in 2019. A man named David S. Montaigne even wrote a book titled Nostradamus: World War III 2002, but alas, the title seems a bit redundant now… Psychic Craig Hamilton-Parker interpreted Nostradamus’ words to mean there could be an assassination attempt made on President Donald Trump’s life, but only after he wins the next US presidential election which is slated for November 3, 2020.“I feel Trump will have a second term but Nostradamus’s predicted an assassination attempt will be in the second term,” he said.For the sake of US politics and Donald Trump’s life, let’s hope that Hamilton-Parker has interpreted it wrong on both counts.
The arrival of the Antichrist.
Sorry, but it gets worse.According to another quatrain, we can expect the arrival of an Antichrist, which will offset a “27-year-long” war, with bloody consequences.“The Antichrist very soon annihilates the three, twenty-seven years his war will last,” he wrote.“The unbelievers are dead, captive, exiled; with blood, human bodies, water and red hail covering the earth.”This sort of sounds like the current plot of Game of Thrones?!
A great flood.
In another prophecy, which seems to mirror the biblical story of Noah and the Flood, Nostradamus theorised that a “great sudden flood” will eventually drown the world.This is what he wrote:
At the place where HIERON has his ship built, There will be such a great sudden flood, That one will not have a place nor land to fall upon, The waters mount to the Olympic Fesulan.
Putting a scientific spin on things, perhaps he was making a reference to global warming and rising sea levels. While not a ‘great sudden flood’ per say, climate change is already threatening to drown nations in the Pacific like the Carteret and Cook Islands, and Tuvalu, a Polynesian island located between Hawaii and Australia.Food for thought.
What predictions has Nostradamus gotten right?
So why is it that the writings of a seer from the 16th century still hold any relevance today? According to some Nostradamus supporters, many of his predictions have already come true.
The rise of Hitler.
In one of his most famous quatrains, Nostradamus writes: “From the depths of the West of Europe, a young child will be born of poor people, he who by his tongue will seduce a great troop, his fame will increase towards the realm of the East”.There are a few similarities. While Hitler’s parents were considered ‘middle-class,’ his mother Klara grew up in a peasant family. Hitler was a notoriously enigmatic speaker and he gradually expanded his control of Nazi Germany into Eastern Europe, including Soviet Russia, Poland and Ukraine.
