Michel de Nostredame was born on December 14th, 1503 in St.-Remy-de-Provence, France; the first son of a large and educated Jewish family. During this era, Jews were persecuted and often practiced their beliefs in shadows. No one is quite sure why, but in 1462, Michel's grand father converted to Christianity, perhaps for the daughter of a prominent politician. He also changed his given name Guy Gassonet taking on a more Christian name from the then popular bishop Pierre, and a new surname de Nostredame meaning "of Our Lady".

The new Pierre de Nostredame passed on this legacy of education and prominence to his children. Jaume de Nostredame, Michel's father, carried on this family tradition becoming a prosperous grain merchant who taught himself to be a well practiced lawyer. With this kind of family "gumption" it's no wonder that Michel too would become an over achiever.

His early education began as his maternal great-grandfather, Jean, tutored the young Michel in mathematics. Jean was a former Town Treasurer, who had embarked on the respected career of physician during the Italian High Renaissance. He was more than qualified to teach Latin, Greek, astronomy and astrology to Michel. Not to mention his experience with chemistry, herbalism and medicine in general.

What isn't widely know is that Michel also took up a great interest of antiques, especially from countless visits to the ancient Roman city of Glanum which was not far from his home. There are some who might speculate that Michel added to his educational knowledge through the ancient Roman books he was fond of browsing through. Could he have read and studied from the old master Paracelsus? The medical knowledge and insights of Paracelsus seem very familiar to Michel's own later exploits. What ever the source, Michel was so adapt with his understanding of medicine and herbology that he could easily qualify as an apothecary.

By the time he was 16, Michel was ready to enter the university in Avignon. His beginning studies were in classical grammar, rhetoric and logic along with basic sciences. But these were interrupted by the plague of 1520 and Michel took his place as physician among many other educated healers of the day. But Michel became known, even in this early time, as a miracle worker. It wasn't until after he spent many years of traveling around Europe that Michel actually enrolled into medical school at the famous Montpelier medical facility in October 1529.

His medical education was not without trouble however. His vast experience during the plague and through his travels boosted Michel's knowledge, in many cases, above those of the scholars doing the teaching. Michel was often at odds with his instructors over the causes or affects of illness in patients. There is no record that Michel achieved his doctorate degree at Montpelier. But by 1533 he had set himself up as a doctor in the town of Agen.

It was in Agen that Michel took his first wife, had two sons and settled into a respectable family life. But it was not to last for long. His beautiful young wife and their two children would die within the first 5 years of marriage. Reportedly due to a plague of some kind, although there is no clear documentation to this fact. It is believed however, that this experience of loss is what pushed the young physician down the path of becoming the worlds most renowned Plague Doctor. At least of his time.

Michel moved back to Provence by 1544 and began intensive studies under the outstanding physicians of the day. Louis Serres was one of these doctors, whom Michel called "another Hippocrates". It is Serres that Michel credits much of his own knowledge and success to. Serres and Michel were becoming well known as the only physicians who could cure the plague.

In 1546, Michel was summoned to Aixen-Provence to take control of another outbreak of the plague. No sooner was the town under control, than he received another summons, to Salon. It was here in Salon that Michel met his second wife. But before he had a chance to settle down with his new love interest, another summons for help came to his door. This time, he was off to the city of Lyon.

His life and medical career continues similarly until 1550, where he finally returns to Salon, his new wife and their recently refurbished home. It is here, with his new recognition and status, that Michel begins what he calls his true work, and his long planned series of annual Almanacs. This is the first time Michel begins to pen his work as "Nostradamus".

His yearly Almanacs included weather forecasts, planting and social calendars, sprinkled with predictions of political and military events. The success of his predictions in these mini-books earned Nostradamus the reputation of being a prophet. They were very popular and brought his family a good deal of wealth and prosperity.

Being a great healer and giving man through out his life, Nostradamus would share his vast fortune with his new home town. The problem with Salon was that it received to little rain for crops, plants and people alike. So Michel teamed up with a local architect and hydraulic engineer Adam de Craponne, to solve the problem. Michel put a great deal of his own money into the project to bring water from the Dehorns River through a series of networks and canals. Even after his death, his widow provided more funding to the project which was successfully completed, although it was way after the death of Michel Nostredame.

On May 17th 1791, the casket of Nostradamus was unearthed and opened by three grave robbers. It was said that whoever should drink wine from the skull of the great prophet would inherit his gift of future sight. But whoever should disturb his grave would die. The men should have been stunned and concerned when they opened the casket, 200 years after it was laid to rest, and found a plaque lying on the inhabitants chest inscribed with "May 1791". Undaunted in their desire to "be like Mike", one of the men removed the skull poured wine into the empty shell and drank from it. Within moments a stray bullet from a nearby skirmish of the French Revolution found it's way into the grave yard and killed the man. Once again, a Nostradamus prophecy came true.

As a young child, Michel wrote later in his life, he could see fragments of events that had not yet occurred. Within a few days or months, the fragments would play out for real and Michel would know the outcome of the event before it was concluded. He considered this a great gift bestowed upon him by the Divine God. For what reason, he wasn't sure; but he would grow to understand the meanings and purposes of his gift later in his life.

One of his earliest visions reportedly involved a chance meeting with a Franciscan fryer in Italy. Michel watched the fryer enter a small courtyard and approach a well for a drink. Michel walked up to the religious man and fell to his knees, kissing the hem of the fryers robe. When asked why he was paying such homage to a fryer, Nostradamus replied, "I must honor his holiness the pope". After the death of Nostradamus, the young fryer from the courtyard, Felice Peretti, was elected the Holy Pope of Rome taking on the name Sixtus the V.

Michel didn't receive great fame and recognition until he settled in Salon and began writing his annual almanacs. His accuracy became well known and respected, even amongst the circles of higher and royal society. He even took on clients and provided them with personal readings, as indicated by hundreds of correspondence found in his office after his death.

Michel then set out to create his books of prophecy. The first books were published in 1566, as The Prophecies of Nostradamus. They were not written in chronological order, or categorized by event. Rather they were written in a four line rhyming verse, called quatrains, in groups of 100 called centuries. He wrote most of the quatrains in his native French tongue, but he included Latin and Greek to protect himself from the superstitious and witch hunters of the day.

So was this man a quack, or is there something to his gift and visions? Decided for yourself. Here are a few of his more popular quatrains that scholars believe have come to pass.

The Death of King Henry II

The young lion will overcome the old one
On the battlefield in single combat;
In a cage of gold, his eyes will be put out
Two wounds in one, then to die a cruel death.

The reigning king of France, Henry II summoned Nostradamus to his court and asked the prophet to explain this vision. Nostradamus explained the King will be killed in a jousting tournament. Henry laughed at the idea. He would never participate in such a tournament. But the King did joust in a tournament against the Count Gabriel Montgomery. During the match, the Count's jousting staff slipped off the Kings chest of armor and embedded itself in his eyes, through an armored helmet made of gold. Unfortunately for Henry, it took several hours for the King to finally expire. Definitely a cruel death. This quatrains officially branded Nostradamus as a prophet.

The French Revolution

It is estimated that Nostradamus wrote 30 quatrains about the French Revolution, which began in 1789.

The husband, alone afflicted, will be mitered;
Conflict will take place at the tile works by 500.
One betrayer will be titled.

In this quatrain, Nostradamus writes of a place he could not have even known of. The Twilleries was the palace of King Louis. But this palace did not even exist in Nostradamus' day. In 1791 a gang of angry Frenchmen calling themselves the Marsi'es, meaning 500, attacked King Louis' palace.

By night he will come to the forest of Reines,
A devious rout, the white Queen of stone
And the gray King, to Varennes.

Scholars suggest this quatrain refers to the flight of King Louis and his Queen Marie Antoinette. Taking the odd route through the Forest of Reines, the king was dressed in a gray cloak posing as a monk. The two royals attempted their escape by carriage to Varennes.

The government taken over,
will convict the king.

A new king invites guests to a wedding,
but others plot the lady's death,
as well as that of his mistress.

The people of France did convict King Louis and sentenced him to death. The Queen was tried by a jury chosen by lot and was also sentenced to death along with the King's mistress. The royals were taken to a square in Paris and beheaded at the guillotine.

The Anti-Christs ~ Napoleon

Nostradamus writes of three anti-christs. Three men that would lead their people through reigns of terror after promises of prosperity and greatness. The first of these Nostradamus declares as Napoleon.

An emperor will be born near Italy.
One who will cost his empire quite a high price.
Among his supporters,
he will be found less a prince than a butcher.

Napoleon was an emperor of France, not a king. He was born near Italy on the island of Corsica, an unlikely place for a ruler of France to come from. During his reign, he was seen as both a prince and a butcher.

From a simple soldier he will attain to empire,
through a short robe he will attain the long.
Great swarms of bees will arise.

Napoleon adopted the beehive as his royal crest. He moved quickly from the short coat of a soldier to the long robe of emperor. Nostradamus predicted the Emperor would reign for 14 years. Indeed, Napoleon's reign of terror began when he seized power in November 9th 1799, to the time he was exiled to Elba April 13, 1814; was 14 years and 5 months.

A great troop shall come through Russia,
The destroyer shall ruin a city.

Napoleon in Greek means the New Destroyer invaded Russia in 1812. His troops invaded and conquered Moscow. But Napoleon over extended his army, another prediction of Nostradamus, and was forced to retreat through the frozen Russian high lands. Nostradamus called those frozen lands the white territory.

The great empire will soon be exchanged for a small place.
in which he will come to lay down his scepter.
A small place of tiny area it will soon begin to grow.

Napoleon was indeed exiled to the small island of Elba, where the Emperor was forced to lay down his royal title. But the French leader would soon plot his way back into the leadership of France and escape his island prison. Only to find failure once more at Waterloo.

The Anti-Christs ~ Hitler

From the Aryan height,
there shall arise one who is elevated and obscure.
of him who rules from the most horrible thrown ever known.

Out of the deepest part of the west of Europe,
of poor people, a young child shall be born.
Who with his tongue shall seduce many people.

While screams are heard in the Mediterranean,
leaders from North Africa and Asia Minor meet near Venice,
representing the Rhine and Danube respectively.

A young Nero burns pages alive
but eventually three of his own family have him killed.

These first two versus describe the rise to power of Adolf Hitler. He was an obscure solder who used his slick tongue to win or mind-wash the citizens of Germany. While screams of terror from the Jewish Holocaust are heard, Hitler and Mussolini meet and plan to conquer Europe. The last verse refers to the book burnings in Berlin, and a plot against Hitler's life in July 1932.

There are versus that describe the furnaces in the concentration camps, the brutal murders of innocent Jews, the separation of children from their parents, the Jewish slave labor spread across the German occupied territory and more, much more.

The Germans and their neighbors
will be in a war.
For the control of regions of the clouds.

In the island shall be such horrible tumonts
that nothing should be heard by war like surprise.
So great shall be the assault of the robbers
that the people shall hide themselves under the great line.

The battle of Britain began one of the greatest air battles ever recorded. Hitler committed his entire force to breaking the back of Britain. The second verse describes the island's, Britain, reaction to the attack. The "nothing should be heard" refers to the air raid sirens to warn the people of an oncoming attack. Indeed the people did hide themselves under the great line, a great description of the London Underground, or subway.

Magda Goebbels, wife of the Nazi Germany's propaganda minister, studied the Nostradamus prophecies. She was elated to find so many versus pertaining to the rise of the Third Reich and the successes that lay before Hitler and his armies.

The United Kingdom and America retaliated in kind, publishing their own versus that described the fall of the German Empire and triumph of free world. MGM even created several short documentaries as moral boosters for the citizens back home. These shorts called "Nostradamus Says So!" were played in theaters across the nation before every feature presentation.

The chosen protector of the great country
For endless years will hold the famed torch.
It will serve to guide this great people,
And in its name they will struggle and triumph.

The great country of America can often times be symbolized by the Statue of Liberty, which serves as a guide to the people. In the name of freedom America struggled many times, and triumphed many times as well.

Saturn of gold will be changed into iron.
The contrary of the positive ray shall exterminate all.
Fire from the color of gold from Heaven to Earth shall be seen.
Great murder of mankind, great loss of infants.

Scholars believe this verse describes the reaction of nuclear fission, as well as, the gold fire which fills the familiar mushroom cloud that stretches from heaven to earth after destination. Nostradamus used this verse and others to describe the fall of Nazi Germany and the end of World War II.


The west shall be free from the British isles. About a country not yet born, 2000 miles away. The American revolutionary war.

The eldest sister of the Britannic Island
shall be born fifteen years before her brother.
By what is promised her and by help of truth,
She shall succeed in the Kingdom of balance.

America, the eldest sister, found her independence in 1776, 15 years before her brother, France in 1791. Scholars suggest the latter part of this verse predicts the influence America shall acquire throughout the world.

A conspired death shall come to a decent.
A charge given and a journey to death.
Elected created received by his own defeated.
Blood of innocence before by remorse.

President Lincoln's assassination at Ford's Theater. A murder that was indeed a vast conspiracy organized by those he defeated during the American Civil War.

The great man falls by lightening in the day,
an evil foretold by the postulant one.

The ancient work will be accomplished from the roof,
evil ruin shall fall on the great man.
Dyeing, dead, they will accuse an innocent of the deed.
The guilty one hidden in the misty woods.

Here in these two quatrains, Nostradamus predicts the assassination of another great man. This time there is a modern day prophet who tries to warn the great man. Could this quatrains be the murder of John F. Kennedy and the prediction of Jeanne Dixon, the modern day psychic? Many Nostradamus scholars think so.

Lee Harvey Oswald was accused, supposedly shooting the President from the top windows of the Book Depository. The controversy surrounding Oswald's innocence and the conspiracy to kill the president has long been a topic of interest to Americans. The "misty woods" could even be a reference to the small area that lay to the right of the President's parade route, called the grassy knoll. Was there a second gun man hidden in shrubbery?


He shall go out in an iron fish,
by lightening the arch of gold and silver melted.
The fleet can swim under water,
it shall be as a bomb under the sea.

The eye of the sea watches
like a greedy dog.

In an iron fish
he will make war.

In these versus, Nostradamus foretells of submarines, the iron fish. Some see the "bomb under the sea" as either the capability of torpedo launches, or submarines powered by nuclear reactors. The eye of the sea can be connected to periscopes and man has indeed wagged war in both iron submarines and iron navy ships.

After a great human change another is at hand,
the great engine renewith with the ages.
In the heaven shall be seen a running fire with long sparks.

He will come to take himself to the corner of Luna
where he will be taken and placed on a strange land.

Scholars suggest these two quatrains describe man's travel into space. The first, prophecy of space rockets, as they take off leaving behind them a long trail of fire. The second clearly indicates mans travel and landing on the moon.

Nine humans are set apart and on their own,
their fate sealed,
and "K", "Th" and "L" banished.

Some scholars believe these "Nine" set apart is a description of the American Supreme court, whose members are appointed for life, therefore their fate is sealed. The latter part of the verse however could mean many things, from case law to meaning actual people are banished from the bench. Other scholars suggest this foretells the NASA Challenger disaster, the last line would then represent the letters of names, potentially the NASA officials who were dismissed during the subsequent investigation of the disaster.

Modern Day Conflicts and Events

Rain, famine, war in Persia having not ceased,
Too great a faith shall betray the monarch.
Being ended there, it shall commence in France,
A secret omen to one that he shall die.

In Nostradamus's time Iran was called Persia. Scholars believe this verse describes the over throw of the Shah of Iran. The last lines in this verse suggest the plot begins in France. Indeed it did, as the Ayatollah began his plans to retake Iran and return it to a land of great faith.

An infamous, villainous tyrant of Iraq,
in league with the Great Whore moves in,
leaving the land horrid and black.

Great bloodshed, hunger,
and astmosheric pollution
afflict the region adjoining Iraq.

Because "Alus" cannot assure his safety overseas,
an Iraqi leader cowers before an army
and a "Furious Black" subdues him.

1991 The Gulf War. The tyrant, Saddam Hussein, believed he asked permission from the U.S. to invade Kuwait prior to moving in on that nation. In this case, the U.S. could be seen as the Great Whore who has a tendency to use other nations for her own benefit. The invasion did indeed leave the land horrid and black with oil fires. Those fires caused a great deal of astmospheric pollution in the region. However, the Iraqi leader was subdued by the unified forces of the world. Some scholars believe the "furious black" could be an indication of General Colin Powell's participation in planning and directing the U.S. attacks on Iraqi.

Fire from the center of the earth;
The great Earthquake shall be in the month of May.
Saturn, Capricorn, Jupiter, Mercury in Taurus,
Venus, also Cancer, Mars in Zero.

Fire from the center of the earth,
Shall make an earthquake in the New City.

Astrologers suggest the conjunction of Saturn, Capricorn, Jupiter and Mercury occurred in 1998. In this verse Nostradamus foretells of a great earthquake in May of 1998. In the latter verse Nostradamus tries to define where the earthquake will occur, the new city. Scholars of Nostradamus explain that when he used "new city" he was referring to new cities in the new world, America.

The war begins in greater Arabia,
the sun, mars and Venus in Aquarius.

The conjunction of the Sun, Mars and Venus in Aquarius occurred in 1994. Some scholars believe this could have been a prophecy of the Gulf War, while others suggest the timing doesn't coincide with the 1991 war. Nostradamus was not usually off by this amount of time and therefore this verse may pertain to Saddam's stock piling conventional and chemical weapons. Preparing for his next uprising.



Can we dismiss the prophecies of Nostradamus? His uncanny accuracy of the past 500 years suggest the versus relating to our future should and must be heeded. Nostradamus himself wrote in a letter to his son that the tragedies he predicted could be diverted. After all our future is but the outcome of the choices we make today. If we take heed to these warnings and modify our choices, we could and can change the outcome of our current destiny. Even when we're on the steps of a great war.

The 3rd World War and the 3rd Anti-Christ

Out of the country of greater Arabia,
shall be born a strong master of Muhammad and law.

I think any current political analyst would agree the potential of this verse has already come to realization. Saddam Hussein does have an uncanny hold over many nations in the middle east and the Muslim nations. Like the Anti-Christs before him, he has a way with words that seemingly promise an abundance of good living and wealth to his people. However, in the end, the promises are also seemingly empty.

In the year 1999 and seven months
From the sky will come the great King of Terror.
He will bring back to life the King of the Mongols;
Before and after, war reigns.

Here Nostradamus tells us when the war will be in full force, as indicated by the last line. Some scholars believe this is an omen of chemical warfare occurring in July 1999. One can not deny the threat of the current conflict in Kosovo and Yugoslavia. Some analysts suggest this world conflict is even more dangerous than the one faced in Iraq. At the very least, the NATO alliance is much more unstable and the threat of the Russian's siding with Yugoslavia is indeed present.

This king will enter Europe wearing a blue turban.
He is one that shall cause the infernal gods of Hannibal to live again.
He will be the terror of mankind.
Never more horror.

Could Hussein succeed in crossing the lines into Europe? This verse and the next suggest that not only is it possible, but that he will come to sit on the thrown of Britain, Spain, France and Italy. There is an old moto that comes to mind, "Your enemy is my enemy. Together we can defeat him". Would it be out of the realm of possibility for the forces of the middle east to join against the common foe with Yugoslavia? The scariest part of this verse is "the infernal gods of Hannibal", a reference to cannibalistic living.


Some now see this quatrain as possibly referring to Osama bin Laden. There has long been speculation that the reason behind Hannibal's rise is due to chemical warfare. Striking the world into famine and hunger. With an increased concern about Terrorists possessing various chemical weapons, and the US governments serious concentration on that issue, the concept is frighteningly real.

The kingdom of the fez
shall come to the thrown of Europe.

The Moorish law will be seen to fall
followed by another that is more pleasing
Boristanis will be the first to fall.

In this verse scholars say Nostradamus is describing an alliance between Islam and Russia. Starting in the south near the river Boristanis, Islam joins with Russia and nuclear power for the Muslim leader becomes possible. The Russians did straddle the fence between backing Saddam and strongly suggesting he comply to the UN resolutions. Again with Yugoslavia, the Russians stand against the NATO alliance. The question remains, how far will they go to back this leader?


A city divided by two heads and three arms
while Turkish leaders are forced to flee
by Iranian invaders.

"A city divided" presumably means Istanbul, which is divided into three parts on two continents. In dating this prophecy, scholars compare the language and events with other prophecies of a like event. They also use correspondence and other documents Nostradamus kept that may relate to a verse in the prophecy books. In this manner, a verse that has no astrological reference can be dated to at least a given year of occurrence. This method has been surprisingly accurate for past prophecies, so there's no reason to doubt that the predicted time for a future event is also as accurate. In that case, the invasion described in this verse would occur during 1998.


A woman hounded from power by conspirators,
returns triumphantly to rule;
from age seventy-three until her death.

1999 sees the reemergence of a female leader. At first some scholars suggested this to be Margaret Thatcher. She is the only woman to have ruled over a country during war time in the past 30 years. The war in the Faukland Islands might be considered by some to be less than a war, but others would strongly argue the point. But consider Hillary Clinton and her bid for the New York senate. She has been hounded by power conspirators, and she put her hat in the running for the senate, there's no doubt that the battle did get worse. As she increases her experience and reputation, will she eventually become a candidate for the presidency in years to come?

But we can't rule out the potential of Elizabeth Dole. Could she be hounded by Democratic power grubbers in retaliation? Regardless, this verse along with other supporting verses suggest that a woman will govern a major power again and the event will occur in the near future.

In July 1999, during a brief peace,
a heavenly paymaster stirs up a great Mongol overlord,
and war then resumes.

July 1999 we could see a visit by the Holy Catholic Pope to Iraq or directly to Saddam. The visit presumably is a plea for peace, which becomes a bribe to cease hostilities. Evidently this will infuriate the "Mongol" leader and war will resume.

There are several versus (V.48, v.54, II.4, VII.6 and VIII.84) that all suggest an invasion into southeastern Europe, the Balklands and a sea invasion into Italy by the Muslim forces. The sweep across Europe begins in 1999.


Mediterranean ports combine
to send warships against a North African fleet
and chase it back to Tunis.

With confederate fleets landing at Marseille,
armies set out from the Adriatic to march on Hungary,
Sicily is devastated,
and northern Italy is under gunfire.

In these two versus and in several others (V.48, II.49, V.47, VI.21) Nostradamus foretells of the European ports combining forces to fight back the Mongol hoards in Libya, Africa and off the coast of Sicily. But Asiatic forces push back across the Danube, reaching Rhodes and the ocean coast of Turkey.

In versus II.86, V.24, VI.54, Nostradamus describes the Iraqi forces over running Egypt. In II.5, he possibly predicts the Muslims invading Italy from the mainland side, effectively squeezing the country into submission.

A comet bright as the sun,
and the baying of the "Great Mastiff"
mark a Pope's change of abode.

In this verse, as well as VII.22, VII.22 and X.3, Nostradamus describes an attack on Rome by bombing and potentially "baying of the Great Mastiff" means conventional forces. The "Great Mastiff" is unlikely to be Hussien himself, but rather a General or great battlefield leader within the Muslim army. Regardless, it is obvious the Pope is forced to flee Rome, possibly to the papal palace in Avignon, France.

In the year of the new century and nine months,

From the sky will come a great King of Terror

The sky will burn at forty-five degrees.

Fire approaches the great new city

Does Nostradamus describe the first nuclear target? In this verse he gives the longitude at 45 degrees, and we know whenever he spoke of a new city he was referring to a city in the new world. Scholars agree, this could only be New York. In this time of tension between the world's UN peace keepers in the Mid-East and the UN inspectors in Iraq, it does seem likely that the UN building in N.Y. could become a target.


Was this a prophecy of the weapons burning toward the city, or the city itself in flames? Could this describe the planes fiery engines, filled with fuel to create the largest explosion on impact? Osama bin Laden is definitely a King of Terror, not to mention the timing.

Near the gates and within the cities
there will be two scourges the like of which was never seen,
famine within plague, people put out by steel,
crying to the great immortal God for relief.


With the events of September 11, 2001, this quatrain becomes much clearer. Within 2 cities (New York and Washington DC), two scourges the like of which have never been seen. Until this time, no one has dared use a plan as a bomb. The people put out by steel is clearly the affects of the escape by many when the twin towers fell. After this event many Americans certainly did turn to their faith to find solace and relief.

A new war is coming, that's evident by all news accounts and threats. Sadly, as rescuers fought to free more victims in New York, their efforts added oxygen to burning embers which reignited into flames. The city continued to burn long after most thought the fires were extinguished. Could this line be referring to these rescue efforts? Or is this yet another event yet to come upon or after the President succumbs?


With Saturn in Aries
or badly aspected with Mars
occupying powers share out the spoils
amid horrors in Italy and Greece.

Presumably 2002 sees the Muslim forces succeeding in their overrun of Rome and Greece. Pillage of the great treasures of Greece and the wealth of Rome are divided amongst the benefactors while horrors and tragedies of the battle lie at their feet.

Saturn brings thunder in Burgundy,
an animal monster and four months' bloodshed.

In 2003 we might see bombing in Europe with some type of chemical war heads, the "thunder in Burgundy" could indicate some type of gas agents. After the bombing the anti-christ, or "animal monster" ensues a battle that lasts for 4 bloody months.

After peace and war,
a great mountain will be beset by floods
that will devastate many countries.

Nostradamus predicts a natural catastrophe during 2004 that will devastate Europe. What seems confusing about this verse is the first line. Could this be an indication of a cease fire, or the end of one war prior to the start of another longer lasting battle? This verse also coincides with his predictions of a potential meteor that strikes the earth. (See "The End of the World" near the end of this posting").

The City of the Sun is overrun
by barbarians from the Adriatic.

2005-Muslims move in to attack Lyon.

After a northward blowing wind carrying ashes,
lime and dust over the walls
causes the abandonment of a siege,
those involved are forced to withdraw by "rain".

In 2005 Nostradamus predicts several natural disasters that both help and hinder fighting efforts against the Muslim invasion. In this quatrain, the disaster is a help as ash and "lava rain" down on the attackers, forcing their withdraw of Rome.


Death, followed by flood, overtakes Rome,
as a leader is consigned to a dungeon
and castle and palace go up in flames.

Between 2006 and 2011, fighting continues through Italy, France and Spain. In versus III.20, VI.88, I.72, V.48 and the one above II.93, Nostradamus details the battles, the fall and even the murder of the leader of Rome, the Pope, by Muslim forces.

Spanish invaders inflict bloodshed
on northern France,
while a rescuing armada approaches.

2020, The French fight back Muslim invaders while help comes from the sea.

An expected coup is foretold,
the Orient is invaded during the night
confronted by the grand enemies;
Subsequent prestige is lost in Aquarius.

In this verse, Nostradamus suggests the Muslims invade the Orient, presumably through China during the night. The assault succeeds in late January or early February in 2024.

2025 - The War Begins To End

Having overrun much of the world with his hordes,
a great enemy leader is poisoned,
blaming his impending death on a variety of unlikely agents.

A Muslim soldier kills an already-dying ruler,
at the request of an ambitious mother,
to both his and the regime's subsequent regret.

In these two versus, Nostradamus foretells of the successful assassination of the 3rd anti-christ. The Muslim overlord is poisoned and "mercifully" put to death in 2026. The breakdown in leadership begins and the European nations succeed in fighting back their invaders.

Southwestern France rises in revolt
when a monster is born near Orgon.

2026 sees the French rising up against their oppressors after the birth of a potential successor to the fallen Muslim leader.

In versus II.16, II.71, II.34, V.23 and others, Nostradamus thankfully continues his theme of a western counter invasion. The new allied forces push the Muslims back through occupied Italy reaching Sicily by 2027. The fight continues into 2032 when a new Ahenobarbus defeats the Muslim invaders.

Warships and cargo vessels captured from Iran,
attack Iranian Muslims and sack the Greek islands
before retiring to an Ionian port.

A Griffin-like ruler of Europe attacks the Iraqi leader
with an international northern army.

In this verse, Nostradamus foretells of the further counter invasion by European forces in 2034. The battles push the Muslims all the way back into the Middle East. By the end of 2034, the European allied forces invade Turkey in their new crusade to retake the territory and restore freedom and peace.

After great disasters, population declines
peace ensues with safe land, sea and air travel.

Populations decrease, either by war or disease. Peace returns to the world and with it, global prosperity is predicted between 2034 and 2100.

The End of the World

Contrary to popular belief, Nostradamus does not predict the date when the world will end. This "rumor" is the result of would be interpreters who seemingly make some vast assumptions concerning many versus within the quatrains. Those assumptions seem to be based on correlations to Biblical chapters that foretell the end of the world during an apocalyptic event. A time when the skies fall, the earth shakes and dead rise.

Taken in context with his other quatrains, writings and clues to dating his predictions, the world seems to last for a bit longer than the 7000a.d. mark currently forecast by some. In short here's a brief tour of the world in the distant future.

One prophecy suggests the fall of the Pope during WWIII is coincided with an astrological event, either a comet or more likely a meteor.

Disaster from the skies,
like the seventh stone,
strikes when least expected.

Shortly before sun and moon are dimmed,
cold, drought,
and danger are abroad.

With the far future dimming
of sun and moon,
two mighty rescuers appear.

These three versus support the meteor theory which cast the earth in to a "nuclear winter". The earth is stricken into a time of drought, possibly 40 years. Then bombarded by rain and flood, famine and still the war rages on during most of this time period. There are some who suggest the last line of III.5 is what turns everything around.

The 2 mighty rescuers are suggested to be extraterrestrial. In fact Nostradamus defines many versus of extraterrestrial visitations and influence on the world. Both in the past and increasingly in the future.

The versus continue into the future describing peace, and a new awareness of personal spiritual evolution; a "new age" if you will. As if man has finally evolved to a point of peace and cast off the shackles of greed, ego and avarice.

Then one May, presumably in 2828, a huge earthquake is felt that is so grand the land seemingly turns itself upside down. Nostradamus predicts the rising of the dead as part of this quake. However, putting the vision into context with other quatrains, it is conceivable that the "rising" is actually the unearthing of coffins during the initial quake or several aftershocks.

This amazing event seems to happen during the middle of the 2828 Olympic games. A time when the world is already focused on itself and unity. Some scholars use this vision in conjunction with prophecies of the bible or other religions text and suggest Nostradamus is predicting the time of the apocalypse, the time of Revelations.

The problem is, there are many more prophecies to be fulfilled based on the dating process. No where in his books "Prophecies of Nostradamus", does he more clearly define this than in verse I.48, described below.


Fulfillment of Nostradamus Prophecies
by the year 7000 and nine moons.

A prediction about himself. Nostradamus foresaw the completion of all his prophecies by September 7000.

With the exception of quatrain #10-72 (which plainly states the year 1999) and quatrains #2-46 and #10-74 (which mention the change of a millennium -- suggesting the times around the years 2000 or 3000), all the other dates presented in this chapter were obtained by information contained in the astrological quatrains. Please refer to the chapter titled the Astrological Quatrains for a detailed explanation of how these potential dates were derived. Rather than attempting to formulate a sequential year-to-year chronology, general themes concerning future wars and natural disasters are presented, followed by some of the hypothetical dates in which they have the potential to occur (between 2000 and the year 2050 A.D.).

 Though present political and military alliances may endure into the future, readers should consider the possibility that these alliances, as they exist now, may differ slightly from the ones which might be formed (or restructured) during the progression of the 21st century. Therefore, the possibility for the emergence of new international alliances and confederations (some being favorable to the West, others adverse) certainly exists, especially in Africa, the Middle East, the former Soviet Union, and various parts of Asia.

Quatrain # 2-89 appears to suggest that the United States and Russia would one day be "friends" again, and their combined power would appear to grow. Since the collapse of the Iron Curtain, and up to the millennial era, this has indeed been the case. However, quatrain #4-95 and #5-78 seem to suggest that this friendship might be short lived (if these quatrains are in fact references to the United States and Russia). If by chance this later becomes true, the reversal of friendship between them could impact many global events to come.

In quatrain # 10-72, Nostradamus predicted an event for July (or September) of 1999 which involved some type of military combat, or other event, by means of the sky. It appears that it foreshadowed NATO's air-war in Serbia, the military tension between China and Taiwan, Russia's war in Chechyna, and the tragic death of John F. Kennedy Jr. Due to the timeliness of this prophecy, this particular quatrain aroused great curiosity among the public.

Beyond the events around the change of the millennium, it appears that conflicts between Christian and Islamic nations have the potential to occur. This could involve one or a combination of the following nations: Iran, Afghanistan, Algeria, Morocco, Pakistan, Tunisia, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Iraq, various nations of the former Soviet Union, and others; against Turkey, Italy, France, Germany, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Macedonia, Hungary, the United States, Israel, the United Kingdom, and various allies of these nations.

By land, various Islamic armies (and their allies) might one day invade Turkey, Macedonia, Greece, Hungary, the former Yugoslavia, Austria, and eventually march towards Italy, attacking the Italians and other forces located there. From Italy, the invaders could then attack other nations in various parts of Europe. It appears that Greece might endure chemical or biological warfare in these conflicts (see quatrains #9-91, #5-47, and #6-21). Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, and Libya may attempt to vex Egypt by land. By sea, these same North African nations appear to invade the southern coastline of France, Monaco, and Spain (then deeper into Europe).

Some of these conflicts could occur in one massive sweep. Or, they might take place over an extended period of years. In addition to land war, these conflicts seem to involve heavy naval warfare in the Mediterranean, Tyrrhenian and Aegean Seas. The nations of N.A.T.O. (or its future equivalent) and their various allies appear to eventually prevail in these conflicts.

 The fate of Israel remains unclear. However, in paragraph #34 of the Epistle, Nostradamus states that Jerusalem might be assailed on all sides, and a Western naval force (from the United States and or other nations in the New World) will help Israel in fighting the forces of its future adversaries.

According to astrological information the years for the potential occurrence of these conflicts (between the period of 2000 to 2050) might be: 2000, 2002, 2013, 2015-16, 2017, 2019, 2021, 2030, 2037, 2038, and 2044.

One should consider the possibility that Euro/Arabic or "Muslim/Christian" conflicts might occur before, during, or after the war with the yet-to-arrive third antichrist. How Euro/Arabic conflicts inter-relate with the war with the third antichrist is unclear at this time. Some of them will be part of his war, and some of them might be precursory or unrelated independent events.

Nostradamus appears to suggest that the future third antichrist will come from a region east of the Black Sea. In paragraph #23 of the Epistle he states that "the grand Empire of the Antichrist shall begin in the region of the former empire of Attila" (Attila was the leader of the Asian Huns who invaded Europe during the fifth century). Nostradamus refers to the third antichrist as "the new Xerxes" (Xerxes was the Persian king who unsuccessfully invaded Greece in 480 B.C.).

Nostradamus intentionally used the names "Attila" and "Xerxes" as allusions to personality types and geographical areas. Thus, in a geographical sense, this suggests that he was referring to various regions of eastern Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

The army of the third antichrist (an enemy of peace) will begin its trek towards Europe from a region between the Caspian and Black Seas. It appears that they will pass through Alania (southwestern Russia) and Armenia, then into Turkey (quatrain #5-54). From there they invade most all of Europe.

The naval forces of the third antichrist will be accompanied by the Libyan fleet into the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas (quatrain #1-9). One of the climaxes of this future conflict appears to be a colossal naval engagement in the Adriatic Sea (quatrain #5-27). Island locations which sustain damage in this war include Malta, Euboea, Sicily, Sardinia, the Dodecanese Islands, and the Cyclades.

If the Russians are "not" allied with Europe and the West during the beginning of this war, Nostradamus states in the Epistle that a northern king from Aquilon (an allusion to Russia) will eventually help to set things right.

This suggests that if the Russians are allied against Europe and the New World at the start of this conflict, they will reverse their position at some future point during the hostilities, and militarily realign themselves with Europe and the West in an effort to quash the "Easterners". As used in Nostradamus' Epistle, "Easterners" would be a reference to the citizens of China, former Soviet nations in central and eastern Asia, the Muslim nations of the Middle East and Asia, and or other countries of the Orient.

Therefore, in consideration of all the prophetic information contained in the quatrains and Epistle, it appears likely that China, in an alliance with certain Muslim nations (and other countries) might be the source of future troubles for many nations around the world.

Apparently, various nations who embrace Christianity will be military targets of the third antichrist. Nostradamus clearly states in his Epistle that the followers of Christianity will face a horrific persecution in the future.

The war with the future third antichrist, according to Nostradamus, will last for the duration of 27.5 years (suggesting a protracted war). N.A.T.O., S.E.A.T.O. (or their future equivalent) and their allies appear to be victorious over the third antichrist's forces. However there appears to be great losses on both sides of this futuristic conflict.

Nostradamus appears to suggest that various regions will one day be struck by missiles (in Europe, the West and elsewhere). New York City might be the location of a direct hit (see quatrains #4-99 and #6-97).

In paragraph #33 of the Epistle, Nostradamus states that a pestilence will develop in the future which will remove two-thirds of the world's population. Could this be a reference to futuristic nuclear or biological war? If so, could this possibly be connected with the third antichrist's war?

When will the third antichrist make his appearance? Will he appear sometime during the first or second quarter of the twenty-first century? It seems possible, yet the answer remains unclear. Hopefully he will never manifest himself and the world will be spared from his wrath.

However, if he makes his appearance before the year 2050, hypothetical years for events which might involve him could be: 2000, 2002, 2006, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2019, 2024, 2026, 2028, 2030, 2038, 2041, 2043, 2044, and 2049.

 In his Epistle, Nostradamus stated that at some point in the future, global flooding will occur. No specific date is mentioned regarding its occurrence, except that it will happen sometime "after" the fall of the future third antichrist.

Some scientists have suggested that the possibility of universal flooding is not as remote as it may seem. Global warming appears to be real and the average temperature of the Earth continues to rise year after year, possibly due to carbon emissions from the combustion of coal and oil, and other human related factors (and not necessarily due to the natural variations of the Earth's climate).

 If atmospheric heating continues, sea levels could rise as much as three feet in the next century, and if that occurs, the universal flood Nostradamus predicted could one day become reality. A world-wide flood would have a devastating effect upon the Earth.

 In addition to flooding, if global warming continues, it could affect rainfall patterns resulting in droughts and famine, affecting the spread of various infectious diseases. And considering the fact that Nostradamus penned many predictions pertaining to droughts, famines, floods, and pestilences, it should serve as a warning to us to consider the long term consequences of this perplexing phenomenon.

Some modern commentators feel that Nostradamus hints at the possibility of a future polar shift, as per the text in paragraph #24 of the Epistle. In example, the on-going heating of the Earth could melt the ice in the polar regions creating not only floods, but producing conditions that could allow for an "off balancing" of the Earth on its axis.

If a polar-shift were to occur, it would cause our planet to quickly shift upon its axis, making a correction to reestablish a new center of its gravity. In the opinion of many modern scientists, in geological terms the Earth is long over due for a polar shift. A polar shift would be quite devastating and could trigger earthquakes and tidal waves (as well as the long term failure of crops and eco-systems).

Some have hypothesized that the gravitational effect created by an alignment of various planets within our own solar system could also serve as a catalyst to produce a polar shift. Another event which could trigger a polar shift could be a collision between the Earth and an asteroid or comet (as occurred on Jupiter in 1994).

According to Velikovsky, a student of Einstein, polar shifts have occurred frequently throughout the geological history of the Earth as referenced in his books Earth in Upheaval and Worlds in Collision. And in the opinion of many modern scientists, in geological terms -- the Earth is long overdue for a polar shift.

It remains speculation as to whether or not Nostradamus was trying to suggest a polar shift by use of the phrase "the grand translation". But if we consider that Nostradamus frequently used synonyms in his writing, we should consider it as a future possibility.

 If a universal flood, massive earthquakes, a polar shift, or a mighty tidal wave were to occur at some point in the future, it could act as an accelerant, initiating hostilities between nations who might otherwise be at peace with one another. A catastrophe of great magnitude might compel the militaries (and citizens) of the various nations affected by it to panic in the chaos and fight over the remaining food and resources, as they scramble for safe ground.

In regards to future earthquakes (between 2000-2050), possible dates for their occurrence, as per astronomical information contained in the quatrains are as follows: earthquakes in America and/or Italy -- 2015, 2016, 2044; earthquakes in Asia -- 2013 and 2026; world-wide earthquakes -- 2048. But readers should bare in mind that Nostradamus did not make predictions for "every" earthquake which will rock our Earth in the future. Earthquakes can occur (in various regions) at anytime and with no warning at all.

After the defeat of the third antichrist, and the passing of the great flood, Nostradamus states in his Epistle that a one thousand year period of peace will prevail upon the planet. Then, new wars appear to present themselves (perhaps around the year 3100).

An AMAZING DISCOVERY has just been made about the famous Quatrains of Michel Nostradamus. The EXACT SAME CODE that appears in the Bible that was discovered a short time ago, also appears in the famous 1000 Quatrains of the 15th Century French Seer.

Many have argued, was Nostradamus a true Prophet.

Well, the same hidden ELS BIBLE CODE appears in his famous 15th Century Writings. That is the same CODE that was first found in the Torah, then it was found in the Tanakh, then in the Greek New Testament and recently even in the King James Version of the English New Testament.

Other works of Literature have been tested for the hidden BIBLE CODE or more correctly the ELS (Equidistant Letter Spacing) CODE. This CODE has been well studied in religious works such as the bible.

Such hidden ELS codes contain remarkable hidden details about future events. So far it has been thought, that such ELS codes don't appear in non religious works of Literature at the same level as has been discovered in religious works like the bible.

However, the Quatrains of Michel Nostradamus do indeed contain the same CODE as the Torah. In fact, the Quatrains contain a remarkable record of future events hidden in the ELS CODE. Details about events that are now taking place.

The Original French Quatrains was used by the researcher that discovered the Nostradamus Code. Who is also the author of 13 books on mysticism.

Below are examples of events foretold in precise detail by Nostradamus, when you use the Bible Code ELS program to search for the hidden ELS CODES.

When an ELS is done in Quatrains for DIANA, Dodi, Paris and Death all appear near the HIDDEN CODE for DIANA.

Lincoln appears in the Quatrains as well. These words all appear Abe, Grand Empire (Great Empire the US), Grand Monarch (Great Leader), USA, Pres, LEE (General), PA (Pennsylvania), NYC (New York City), Victeur (Victor), Tent (Civil War is famous for tents, discord, change (the Civil War brought great change) and spied (killed by Booth a spy.

Coincidence or remarkable HIDDEN CODE?

Clinton appears in the Quatrains of Nostradamus with LIER, Leg (he injured it during presidency) Bastard Son (another scandal and Clinton is said to be a bastard as well), terrible, crier (he's often seen crying) user (yep, ask Monica) Pres appears twice (he was elected President twice), Teen, Fail, combat also appears (perhaps his draft dodging or a major war?) BED (can you say sex scandal) as do sail and October. Seven Ships and Auto appear as well??? Oh and to Sollog fans, SOLLOR the Greek spelling of Sollog appears!

Secret Service agents of Clinton arrested the famous mystic his writings about Clinton.

Hitler is crossed by NAZI and DEATH the word Conflict appears twice. There are no W's in the quatrains, so the word for war always shows up as conflict. So the conflict appearing twice is like saying WAR 2 or twice. Hitler was the key figure of World War 2!.

How accurate are these ELS codes about the future? Consider this ELS about a major event almost 500 years in the future. Can you explain how the name of the spacecraft, the name of the first human to walk on the moon, the name of the US Space agency and the word MOON all magically appear? Yes Apollo, Neil, NASA and MOON all appear in this AMAZING ELS.

The name of the person that discovered the Hidden ELS Nostradamus code appears as well. He is known by his religious name today, which is Sollog. In Greek it is SOLLOR. His birth name was ENNIS. Sollog appears as does ENNIS in direct connection to Sollog...



An AMAZING DISCOVERY has been made concerning the famous ELS (Equidistant Letter Spacing) Code known in the media as THE BIBLE CODE.

The Torah was the first religious work analyzed to see if the ELS Code was valid. Remarkable discoveries of hidden ELS codes were indeed found in the Torah.

Recently the King James Version of the New Testament was researched for hidden ELS Codes.

This is an example of how AMAZING the ELS Code is in religious works such as the KJV-NT.

John Kennedy was found along with EXECUTED and THE ROOF. LEE the name of the assassin was found, as was The Soldier. Great Money was also found. A reference to IN THE EAR was even in this NEW ELS CODE find, as was The Prince. A reference to By the Highway and THE PRES is in the Matrix as well. Interesting references to The Secret Chamber and The Country of the Father Of appear. They Found Him is also in the ELS. Oh, John was found twice in this Kennedy ELS. A reference to John John his son.

John Kennedy or THE PRES, was indeed KILLED or EXECUTED, according to the findings of the Warren Commission by LEE Harvey Oswald. Lee was a soldier and JFK was a famous war hero or soldier. He was shot from above like from a ROOF. It was while he was in a motorcade about to enter a Highway.

The entry wound was indeed near his ear. John Kennedy came from one of the richest families in America. So, Great Money is indeed an amazing find. As to the reference to JFK being The Prince, Camelot is often refered to as the time during Kennedy's Presidency and the Kennedy's are often called America's Royal family.

Even a reference to THE SECRET CHAMBER was in this ELS. That means something that is hidden like the truth, it is a reference to all the conspiracies about the death of JFK.

They Found Him is indeed how Oswald was captured. They Found him hiding in a theatre.

The USA is well known as The Country that is said to be connected to this phrase, The First President, Washington is THE FATHER of his Country...
