World War III is coming with Russia, Iran, Muslims, China will destroy the whole world in engaging with Western nations in combats relying both conventional and weapons of mass destruction. Russia-Muslim forces shall attack Europe, destroy totally Rome ,Italy, and France. China and US will fight to the last men. PLEASE READ AND TELL THEM!!!

NOSTRADAMUS: Prophecies of Our Century
Invocation of the law against the inept critics:
Those who read these verses,
Let them consider with mature mind.
The profane, vulgar, ignorant need not to be attracted.
All astrologers, fools, barbarians, do not draw near.
 He who acts otherwise will be cursed according to the rite.
( Nostradamus 1555 AD )
To understanding the meanings of Nostradamus's prophecies,
one has to be guided by the Holy Spirit, has to be an obedient and devout Catholic,
one has to have a deep devotion to Our Lady,
and one has to be knowledgeable of the ancient Catholic prophecies,
as Nostradamus's writings include many prophecies before and after his time
for OUR CENTURY or the END TIMES alone.


 Seated at night in secret study
 Meditate alone upon brass tripod
A small flame leaps out from solitude
Makes me pronounce what not in vain.

Rewritten: Seated at night in my private study / Meditate alone on the glorious Trinity / The divine flame leaps out of calmness / Grant me wisdom to pronounce what not in vain.

Comment: Nostradamus's prophecy is the gift from the Holy Spirit, not occultism or witchcraft.

With the Divine Scepter,
He blesses my limb and foot,
Fearful, I tremble and wait,
Divine Splendor, the Divine presence nearby.

Comment: The Lord or His messenger blessed Nostradamus's hands and feet before he wrote down the prophecies. He was awe-struck by the heavenly visitor.

When trash is whirled around by strong wind,
When they cover their face with cloaks,
Then the republic will be troubled by new people,
Then white and red will misjudge each other.

Comment:  Trash is only blown around in our modern cities due to urbanization. When the radical Islams become dominant and widespread ( women cover their faces with turban ), then the Republic or US will be troubled with a new kind of war or enemies. Eventually a mistrust plus mis-calculation between Western and communist countries will lead to World War III.

In the whole world there shall be one monarch,
Whose life and peace shall be short-lived,
Then the Fishing Boat will be lost,
It will be reigned to the greatest detriment.

Comment: After the WW III, the whole world will be united and governed by King Henry, the second Holy Roman Emperor since Charlemagne the Great. Unfortunately, the peace under his reign will be short-lived as he soon dies after the war.
After Henry's death, the whole world and the Church or Papacy will be thrown into turmoil. Rome will be run by heretics or the enemy of the Church.

How often you will be captured, O city of the Sun,
You have changed to vain and barbaric laws,
When evil times grow near, you will become more dependant,
The great Henrie will restore your vein.

Comment: The City of the Sun is Paris as France was once consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ (the Sun or Sol). During war-time, French people will turn back to God ( be more dependant ). The great leader Henry will lead his nation back to true Catholicism after WW III.

From the East shall come a Punic (treacherous) heart,
To trouble Henrie and Italy,
Accompanied by Libyan fleet,
Malta and islands will tremble and be emptied.

Comment: Muslim and Russian forces will invade France and Italy. Malta and neighboring islands will be occupied by Libya.

In perfect coordination and swiftness,
Naples, Leon, Sicily will be invaded,
Swords, fires, waters, then the noble Romans,
Drowned, killed, dead due to clouded head.

Comment: Russians and Muslims will conquer Europe or France and Italy with surprise and swiftness. Weapon, fire, and flood will kill many including clergy ( noble Romans) who bring tragedy upon themselves because of their heretical and false thoughts.

In prison by their princes and lords,
The Slavic people will request for songs and books,
In future, they shall become idiots without heads,
While they recite their divine prayers.

Comment: Nostradamus prophesied the emergence of communism in Russia which has become atheistic nation.

Mars threatens with the force of war,
Seventy times he will cause bloodshed,
Increases the ruin for the Clergy,
And more for those who disregard the Church’s teaching.

Comment: Clergy will suffer more and more as more wars occur, simply due to the disregard toward human life and disrespect toward the religious. Those who are not concerned with religion or the Church’s Teaching will suffer most. This also hold true for those nations practicing evil and are abandoning their Christian roots like France and Italy.

When both Saturn and Mars transiting toward Sagittarius,
At their highest ascendance,
Plague, famine, and death through military hands,
The century approaches a renewal.

Comment: Saturn or Sun stands for Jesus Christ or God and Mars for war. Thus, when the Lord exerts His Judgment on this sinful world, wars shall cause plague, famine, and widespread death. This will occur around the beginning of the 21th century.

For forty years the rainbow will not appear,
For forty years it will be seen daily,
The parched earth will be drier,
And great deluge will follow.

Comment: Extreme weather or climate was predicted here. The areas suffered the most from drought will have to endure the following flood afterwards. Forty years here was spoken figuratively, not precisely.

Due to French discord and negligence,
A passage to Mohammed will be opened,
Blood soaks the earth and Italian sea,
And the port of Marseilles is full of ships.

Comment: With French support Muslim forces grow stronger or economic embargo is not effective. French will pay a heavy price with their blood when their navy is defeated in Mediterranean Sea by Muslim forces. French navy will depart Marseilles heading toward Italian coast and will be ambushed by numerous speedy boats equipped with antiship missiles in a foggy night.

When the serpents encircle the altar,
French blood is vexed by Spain,
By them, many will perish,
The chief flees hiding in swamps.

Comment: When the Devil infiltrates into the interior of the Church meaning the present time we are living in, or when France lose her Faith, Spain with a large Muslim population will surrender to the incoming Muslim invaders, join forces to attack France. French leaders will retreat from the southern France.

A white substance rock or salt support,
Will emerge from the deep like milk,
Perplexed and troubled people dare not touch,
Did not know there is a milky substance underground.

Comment: Nuclear radioactive waste will one day contaminate the area on the surface of the burial desert.

A new modern city being condemned,
The bird of prey (Henry) offers himself to Heaven,
After victory, he pardons prisoners,
After Italy being much suffered.

Comment: Modern cities will be completely destroyed by God after Three Days of Darkness and after the WW III. Commander Henry of the Western Allies will pardon all prisoners as a good will gesture to bring peace to the world, and as he realizes WW III is truly the Divine Judgment which we bring upon ourselves and in which all of us take part.

Lost and found again after many centuries,
Pasteur will be honored a  demi-god,
When the moon complete her great cycle,
He will be dishonored by another ancient wind.

Comment: In 16th century, Nostradamus already realized that germs caused illness and plague. Many centuries later, Pasteur discovered the same. After the 20th century, homeopathic remedies will replace the modern medicine pioneered by Pasteur.

The tower of Bouk shall fear Muslim fleet,
Along time after the Western fleet will come,
Cattle, people, and goods all receive great damage,
Taurus and Libra, what a deadly quarrel!

Comment: The tower resembling an open Book (Bouk) will fear the incoming Muslim aircraft. Can this be the World Trade Center in NY. Afterwards, the Western fleet will arrive at Mediterranean Sea. Many people will die by WW III. Libra symbolizes a nation governed by law and order which Nostradamus used time and time again to indicate USA. And Taurus, the opposite astrological sign to Libra symbolizes China here. China and US will engage in a blood conflict in which Chinese will fight to the last man.

A strange ship tormented in the sea,
Shall come near an unknown port,
Notwithstanding the prophetic signs,
It shall die, be plundered, a good advice shall come too late.

Comment: French or American aircraft carriers and ships will be sunk by Muslim navies who use much cruder means such small speedy boats ambushing them near Italian sea port. This strategy works well in the narrow place such as Mediterranean or Persian Gulf. Nostradamus’s prophetic advice will not be heeded until it is too late.

So many years war shall last in France,
Beyond the course of Castilian monarch,
An uncertain victory three great ones shall crown,
The eagle, cock, moon, lion, sun in it mark.

Comment: Many battles shall take place on French soil for many years. The second line indicated about 30 years.

The great empire will soon change place,
For a better place, it will grow in size,
Very tiny place of a small account,
In the middle of it, he will lay down his scepter.

The birds of prey shall fly left for six months,
Before the conflict in France,
Some shall consider it as a good omen, for the others an ambiguous one,
The minority party shall rejoice in it.

Comment: Before the war take place in France, birds will migrate West for many months. This might mean WW III will reach France in winter months.

Too late a monarch will repent,
Of not finishing his adversary,
But he will consent to a higher goal,
Through it, he will waste all his blood.

Comment: President Bush Senior regretted for not finishing Saddam Hussein. But it is a destiny designed by God as his son, President Bush Junior has to invade Iraqi soil alter to finish the job, but the price will be much higher. This shall trigger the Divine Justice in the form of  World War III.

Shortly before the sun sets,
Battle is given, with the outcome in doubt,
Foiled, marine port makes no answer,
A bridge and a sepulcher, two strange places.

Comment: Before the end of the Divine Chastisement or WW III, the decisive battle will take place on land. This might be a great battle Armageddon in which no clear victor emerges.

The sun and the eagle will be victorious,
A vain answer shall be made to the vanquished,
Arm assault cannot be stopped,
Peace can be achieved only through death.

Comment: World War III will go on until total destruction on both sides. Prayers from unrepentant sinners will go unanswered. But at the end, the victory will belong to Jesus Christ (the sun) and His Gospel (the eagle).

The fire of Divine Spirit will be extinguished,
A diabolical assembly seeks bones of Devilish Psellus.

Comment: Witchcraft and magic or New Age occultism will make a comeback as Faith is weakened.

Before the change of empire occurs,
One marvelous event will come,
In the field will a pillar of precious stones be placed,
Upon the rocky chalky cliff.

Comment: Before France becomes the world leader, a divine manifestation will take place as a monument being placed on a certain cliff by God.

For a short time, idolatry sacrifices shall return,
Who refuses shall be put to martyrdom,
There shall be no monks, abbots, or novices,
Honey shall be more valuable than wax.

Comment: Under the occupying control of the foreign invaders, people are forced to worship idols or false gods. the true believers who refuse shall be put to death. Materialistic gain  which is reduced to the necessities of a mere survival is encouraged over the spiritual life.

By Auch, Lectoure, and Mirande,
Great fire from the sky for three nights,
A stupendous but wonderful event,
Shortly afterwards the earth will tremble.

Comment: Fire in the sky or meteor shower will illuminate the south west regions of France for three nights in the row. Shortly afterwards, France will be invaded by Russian and Muslim forces.

The speeches in Leman Lake (Geneva) become agitated,
Some last for days, extended into weeks,
Then months, then into years, and finally all fail,

Long, long before the end of the world,
China of the East thanks to the Muslim conquerors,
In the year of 2025AD, shall mobilize a great army,
Shall subjugate mostly northern section or Russian land.

Thursday shall be his holiday,
His fame, praise, reign, and power shall grow,

Jupiter and Saturn in confrontation,
Eternal God, a spiritual struggle,
With bad times returning after a long century,
France and Italy, what a commotion!

Comment: Man (Jupiter) and God (Saturn) engage in a confrontation as God allowed Satan one century to tempt mankind. France and Italy will suffer most with many battles on their soils.

How much a great people tormented,
And the holy law in total ruin,
By pagan laws, Christianity is governed,
And a new source of wealth will be found.

Comment: In our century, the Church’s teaching is neglected. Most Christian countries are no longer governed based on Catholic or Christina principles while materialism through newly-found wealth such as stock and bond is emphasized.

Two revolutions caused by the Death,
Makes a complete permutation in reign and centuries,
The Libra’s scale of justice is so meddled,
Inclined equally to both sides.

Comment: The devil enticed two major revolutions: French and communist, affecting all humanity for years. One of the consequences is the birth of distorted justice system or democracy in which there is two extremes, left-wing and right-wing, and everything eventually tolerated, governed by the majority rule. There is no more moral standards and absolute truth of the Divine and natural laws.

Due to the opposite Babylonian climate,
there will be a great deal of bloodshed,
Heavenly mercy seems withdrawn from land, sea, and air,
Sects, famine, kingdoms, plagues, confusion.

Comment: When the world become confused and sinful with sexual pleasures (Babylonian ), then there will be wars on land, sea, and air. The divine chastisement will be metered out in many forms: occults, famine, annihilation of countries, plagues, the loss of faith, and so on.

Sooner or later there will be great changes,
Extreme horrors and persecutions,
The Muslims will be led by their arch-angel,
Heaven will incline to cover its face.

The world will be completely ruined or changed when the Muslims led by their spiritual principality to carry out wars with numerous atrocities committed. It would appear that God had abandoned mankind to themselves.

Joint in the belly, it shall be born with tow heads,
And four arms, shall live for few years,
the day Aquila celebrates his feast,
Fossan, Turin, the chief of Ferrara shall run away.

Comment: When we witness the wonder of modern medicine by which a Siamese twin can be separated, Muslims shall invade Italy while US celebrates its feast day, the Fourth of July. And this year 2002, medical circles have been very successful in operating on Siamese twins. The Pope John Paul II will have to flee from Rome (the chief of Ferrara).

The exiles are carried to the Islands,
By the most cruel monarch,
They shall be murdered and burnt,
Because they do not spare their speech.

The scourge passed, the world made smaller,
Peace for a long time, land inhabited again,

Then wars will begin again.

The great mountain encompasses seven stadia,
After peace, war, famine, flooding,
Shall spread far, drowning many countries,
Even ancient landscapes to their foundations.

Comment: Seven stadia equals to 4247 feet. A comet with such a circumference will fall into the earth destroying many nations. The chronological order is flooding, famine, war, then peace, and finally asteroid. Right after WW III ends, an asteroid will arrive, and probably will land in the Mediterranean Sea, wiping out many coastal lands. And you will see later Greece as a nation shall become extinct.

Rain, famine, war in Persia shall not cease,
Too great the trust shall betray the monarch,
Ended there but conceived in France,
A secret omen for one who shall die.

Comment: Natural disasters and wars continue in Iran. Ayatollah Hominy directed a revolution overthrowing the Shah of Iran while being exiled in France. In 1978, Hominy started the revolution. In 1979, he enticed the rebels inside Iraq with a series of  terrorist bombing in Iraq, and the Iran-Iraq war began costing  close to million Iranian lives who otherwise might have a second thought about their new dictatorial regime. It is a convenient way to eliminate the intellectual but potentially political opponents to the Islam. An hidden omen indeed.

Due to neglect, France will be assaulted on five fronts,
Tunis and Algeria stirred up by Persians,
Leon, Seville, Barcelona yielded,
There will be no fleet from Italy.

Comment: Iran will stir up Islamic extremists from Northern Africa including ones in Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt. France will be attacked from five fronts, possibly: Russians from North-Eastern Europe and from Italy, Muslims from the south, from Spain and from the sea. French navy stationed in Marseilles will mostly be destroyed in Mediterranean Sea near Italy, will never return to protect its homeland.

After a retardation, they shall sail toward Epirus,
The great aid shall come to Antioch,
The black curly hairy one will try hard for the empire,
The brazen barbarian to be roasted on a pit.

Comment: After along series of defeats to the Eastern Alliance, the Western Alliance finally shall turn the tide of battles by liberating Western Europe, then coming to rescue Greece from Muslim occupying forces. The Allied commander will be a French general named Henry who has a black curly hair. During the pursuit of the retreating Muslims, they burnt alive the supreme Muslim commander who probably gets fired upon.

From the sixth celestial splendor,
Trumpet thundering much in Burgundy,
A monster shall be born from the hideous beast,
March, April, May, June shall be great quarrelling and wounding.

Comment: When the sixth angel of the Apocalypse blows the trumpet, the Divine Chastisement shall begin in earnest with WW III. An evil  leader who shall alter start the world war and who was incarnated from the devil, will emerge on the political scene after a period of political turmoil lasting several month up to July. This leader will be appointed  to lead his country (Russia, Iran, or China?) some time after the month of June. Putin of Russia was officially appointed to be the Prime Minister after along period of turmoil at the very beginning of August of 1999. Remember this important date, so important that Nostradamus actually spelled it out it detail meaning it is exact date, not a figurative one.

Among the human flock nine shall be set aside,
Divided in judgment and counsel,
Their destiny is to divide,
Kappa, Theta, Lambda, dead, banished, scattered.

Comment: This prophesied on the US Supreme Court, a divisive institution which only leads the society to death through interpreting or inventing laws according to modern  cultural standards, not based on the original spirit of the laws.

Saturn in Mars shall gaze furious,
Horrible to the Tuscans and Latins,

When the queen sees herself vanishing,
Will exercise with masculine courage,
On the horse, she will pass the river naked,
With a sword, she will outrage her faith.

Fire from the center of the earth,
Shall tremble the tower of a New City,
Two great rocks have been at war a long time,
Then (Areth)USA shall cover with a red river of lava.

The Gods shall indicate to mankind,
That they are authors of the great conflict,
The serene sky shall be covered with sword and lance,
The one on the left shall suffer greater affliction.

Comment: World Wars are the consequences of the spiritual battles, a manifestation of the Divine Justice. Battles in the air with airplanes and missiles are prophesied here. The leftist or communist countries suffer the most. The last line about communists indicates that this prophecy is about the war to come or WW III. Men still believe they control their destiny as they do not recognize the Hand of God in all the world events.

Under one man peace will be with clemency to all,
But not long before plundering and rebellion,
Because of a refusal, town, land and sea will be attacked,

At Port Selin a tyrant will be put to dead,
But liberty is not recovered,
More new wars due to vengeance and remorse,
Lady of fear shall be honored.

In front of a monastery, a twin child is found,
He is born from a monk and an ancient,
His fame through sect, tongue, and power,
One will say Vospique is highly praised.

Comment: Vospique comes from the Latin word vospiscus or the healthy survivor of a set of twins. this quatrain comes right after the previous one about turkey might indicate that this charismatic famous person might come from this region. The antiChrist is long prophesied to be an illegimate child of an abbot or a monk and a prostitute. He is begotten by the ancient devil himself. He shall be adored through his powerful speech and occultic religion and successful military background.

He who is the Destroyer,
Changes churches and religions with fantasies,
Shall do more harm to stones than to living things,
He fills up ears with smooth talking.

Comment: This is the continuation of the previous quatrain. The antiChrist is the arch-angel of the abyss, called Abaddon or Apollyon meaning the Destroyer (Rev. 9:11). He shall destroy many cities but leaving the country-side or wilderness intact. The antiChrist shall turn heretic as he replaces the Church’s teaching with the fanciful New Age thinking, worshipping nature instead of God.

What cannot be accomplished with gun or fire,
Shall be done by a smooth tongue in a council,
The king shall contemplate on his dreams,
Putting more enemies through fire and military bloodshed.

By the same parties shall make great incursions,
Rain and frost make the ground treacherous,
They shall make strong invasion on Muslim port.

Heat of the sun beats upon the sea,
By a black bridge fish shall be half-cooked,
Local residents will slice fish open,
When Rhodes and Genoa demand biscuit.

Comment: The temperature of the earth shall rise so much that the maritime system shall be disrupted with fish dying. The black bridge indicates that it is a metallic bridge of our modern time. Food shall be scarce.

From Monaco to Sicily,
All the coast shall be desolate,
There shall be no city or town,
That the Muslims do not pillage and violate.

Comment: The southern Europe, most France and Italy, mostly along the coastal areas, shall be destroyed by the Muslim invaders.

Near the port between two cities,
Two scourges, unlike anything before, shall occur,
Famine and plague within, people will be killed by sword,
They cry for help to the immortal God.

Comment: Palestines in West Bank and Gaza strip will suffer greatly.

Temples consecrated in the early Roman rituals,
They will reject the shaky foundation,
Applying the first humanistic laws,
They will eliminate most the veneration of the saints.

Before long, everything will be arranged,
We await a very sinister century,
The conditions of the celibate clergy  have greatly changed,
Not many will want to stay in their places.

Comment: Everything is already planned by God Who gave the Satan the 20th century or 100  years to tempt mankind. The holiness of the Clergy is diminishing and there is a shortage of religious vocation.

Their eyes closed but open to antique fantasy,
The habit of the solitary ones (monks) shall be discarded,
The great monarch shall chastise their frenzy,
For ravishing earthly treasure instead of God’s House.

Comment: Blinded, the Clergy will be influenced by the world. They will live a materialistic life and no longer wear their religious habits. The new orthodoxical Pope shall make many reforms to revive the holiness in priesthood and religious life.

The body without soul no longer sacrificed,
Day of death shall be day of birth,
The Divine Spirit will make the soul rejoice,
Seeing the Word in all eternity.

Comment: This describes a saintly soul right after death. After death, he no longer offers God his sacrifice but rejoices to be with the Word of God or his Lord Jesus Christ forever. His death shall be his rebirth into the eternal life.

A short time before a monarch is murdered,
Castor and Pollux, and a comet,
Public treasure by land and sea looted,
Pisa, Asti, Ferrara, Turin, forbidden lands.

Shall gather near a submerged island,
The Arton (N-a-t-o) fleet shall be dissolved,
Center of the world  substituted with a greater voice.

Comment: Europe becomes divisive partly due to the uncooperative England which shall be flooded. United Nation shall increase in influence while NATO diminishes its role as the world police.

Hungry beasts will go cross the rivers,
Most of the battle field shall be against Hister,
Into an iron cage he will be confined,
When the children of Germany shall observe nothing.

Comment: Most of the Allied Force fought against Hitler’s force. He himself died in an iron bunker. He  had brain-washed the whole generation of the German children into mad and brutal Nazis.

The Divine Word shall be restrained in Heaven,
One will not proceed further,
The revelation, the secret shut away,
They will walk over and fall into the dungeon.

Comment: Our Lord Jesus Christ shall yield to the Divine Justice of His Father. The Holy Spirit and his prophecies will also be withdrawn. The unrepentant sinners continue to walk right into the eternal damnation.

One who takes the surname of the Prophet,
Shall take Diana (Monday) as the day of rest,
He shall wander far with his raving head,
Delivers a great people into subjection.

Comment:  Germany sounds closely to Jeremiah, the prophet’s name. It will create three-days weekend for workers. The skin-head radicals were originated from Germany and spread far.  Germany invaded France ( a great people to Nostradamus ) and occupied it during WW I and II.

One from the East shall come out of his seat,
Go across the Apennines Mountain  to see France,
He shall fly through the air, water, and snow,
And strike everyone with his rod.

Comment: Iranian and Muslim forces shall conquer Italy, then shall strike France by crossing the Alps on foot, reach Marseilles by sea, and bombard it with weapon of mass destruction through the air.

One shall cause the infernal gods of Annibal,
To be reborn to terrorize all mankind,
There was never more horror even in the ill days,
It happens because of the Babel by the Romans.

Comment: The ancient Annibal once attacked Rome. WW III shall happen with Rome and Paris being completely ruined. It happens because of the sin of mankind plus the loss of Faith which started with the new Mass celebrated in different languages (Babel) by the Clergy (Romans.)

In two inns at night the fire will break out,
Many will be suffocated and roasted,
Near two rivers, it will happen certainly,
Sol, Arc, and Caper (goat or cape) all mortified.

Comment: Sol is Sun or God, Arc is crescent or Muslims, caper in Latin is goat or here cape for the Pope. Pope JP II will flee from Italy to Southern France where he himself and his companions shall be killed  in the region between two rivers.

A year before the Italian conflict,
German, French, Spanish united for the show of force,
The school house of the republic shall collapse,
Except a few, all shall be suffocated to death.

Comment: Before Muslims invade Italy, the building in US shall collapse (World Trade Center).  Nostradamus always used the word “republic”  to imply America. After September 11th of 2001, NATO represented here by three of its members, German, French, and Spanish, showed a unity by a strong condemnation on that act of terrorism.

Shortly afterwards, not a long time,
By land and sea, a great tumult will be made,
The naval battles will be greater than ever,
Fire and animals shall create great affront.

Comment: This is the continuation of the previous quatrain. Shortly after September 11th, WW III shall take place, marked by many greatest naval battles around Mediterranean Sea in which Western forces shall suffer great losses by the smaller Muslim navy. “Fire an animals” was used here to describe the modern weapons which were not fully understood by Nostradamus.

The great star shall burn for seven days,
The cloud shall make two suns appear,
The big do shall howl all night,
When the great Pope shall change land.

Comment: Comet Hale-Bopp appeared for many days in 1997. The cloud formation shall create a halo around the sun. The big dog howling indicates a great tragic event or a period of time. Pope JP II shall have to flee Rome upon the Muslim invasion. A continuation of the previous quatrains.

During the time the bearded star appears,
The three great princes shall become enemies,
Struck by Heaven, peace on earth trembles,
Paul, overflowing Tiber river, a serpent place on the shore.

Comment: After the comet Hale-Bopp appeared in 1997, US, Russia, and Muslims shall become enemies, who will start WW III. This war is the Divine Justice metered out on this sinful world. The serpent or evil shall land on the Italian shore affecting the fate of JP II and Rome which is located near River Tiber.

Heaven weeps too much for androgynous creation,
To Heaven human blood reaches,
Because of so long a death, French people cannot be reborn,
But sooner or later shall come the long-waited Divine help.

Comment: androgynous means having the characteristics of both male and female, here means sex change or homosexual. Homosexuality and abortion (“human blood sheds”) are the sins which reach Heaven, demanding vengeance.

After a great period of human suffering, appears another one,
The great motor of centuries will be renovated,
Rain with blood, milk, famine, iron and pestilence,
In the air a fire with a long sparkling trail shall be seen.

Comment: Mankind shall destroy itself with modern technology, with weapon of mass destruction. Milk together with iron or fire often indicated by Nostradamus to be chemical warfare or pollution. A fire with a long trail is a missile.

Many nights the earth shall quake,
In spring, two great ones follows one another,

Fleet scattered, blood and bodies shall swim.

Comment: Punic faith stands for North Africa treachery. The mule is the symbol of US’s Democratic Party. WW III affecting Middle East, France, and Spain shall happen under a Republican regime.

Mabus shall come, soon shall die,
Half man half beast shall be a horrible destruction,
Suddenly vengeance shall be seen,
Blood, hand, thirst, famine, when the comet comes.

Comment: Mabus is the abbreviation of Bragamus ( see Quatrain 8.78 which also deals with the antiChrist). The word means a soldier of fortune, not a name of a person. The antiChrist is incarnated beast from hell. In his short reign, he will totally destroy everything that he can get his hand on. Eventually he will be struck dead by lightning.

Geneva shall suffer hunger and thirst,
A faint hope shall come when they are fainting,
The hellish laws shall be trembled,
The navy shall not be able to enter port.

The slope declined, great calamity.
Which shall be done to the West and Italy,
Fire  in ship (papacy), plague, and captivity,
Mercury in Arc, Saturn harvests hay.

Comment: The degradation of human nature like a declining slope brings great infliction to men through wars and natural disasters. The pope will suffer. also plague, and imprisonment. Mercury in Arc means God’s Justice through Muslim hand. And it is time for the Son of God to harvest his sowing (and the Devil gets his.)

Upon three parts of it, his scepter flourishes,

Died speaking, a great execution,
Turning into stone, a proud people being humbled,
Human beats purged by expiation.

Comment: Missiles shall blow up from the sky, beginning of a great bloody execution in mankind. Many will be mass-executed alive. This comes about because man has lost his conscience turning into stone or human beasts. Therefore, a general expiation is needed for numerous sins of human race.

British army vexed in Italy,
For all, great conflict and great loss,
Romans fled, French repulsed,
Near Ticino and Rubicon uncertain battles.

Comment: British troop come to aid Italians fighting Muslims. Battles around Italy will be fierce and bloody for both sides. Pope and the Clergy shall flee from Rome to France.

The voice of the unusual birds shall be heard,
As recorded in the canon of the greatest degree,
The bushel of wheat shall rise so high,
Man shall eat his fellow- man.

Comment: The Canon of the highest degree is the Book of Revelation. When one hears the voice of the unusual birds, the antiChrist is coming. One of his tactics to enslave the general population is rationing food in order to obtain obedience. A widespread hunger will take place.

The frizzled black beard through battles,

The great Henry shall free from bondage,
All captives under Muslim banner.

After that, one shall come from remote regions,
A German prince placed upon the golden throne,
Servitude and waters shall meet,
Madame shall serve as her time is no longer adored.

Comment: King Henry of France whose ancestry belongs to the old Germany, shall lead the Allied to a victory over the Eastern Alliance. He shall die after a long servitude by a coastal area. He is responsible for overhauling many social issues including returning women to their traditional domestic role as a wife and mother, thus abolishing the feminism movement.

One day two great masters shall be friends,
Their great powers shall be increased,
The new land shall be at its high power,
To the bloody (spotty) one, a number is reported.

Comment: The new land is USA. Here Nostradamus prophesied USA and Soviet would become friends. The last line describes Mikhail Gorbachev who has a bloody birthmark on his face.

Near the Tiber, goddess of death threatens,
A little before a great flood,
The master of the ship being taken, put in  a well,
His castle and palace will be burnt.

Roman Pontiff, be careful when you come near,
The city by the two rivers,
Where thy shall spit thy blood,
Thou and thine when the rose shall bloom.

He who will have his face covered with blood,
The blood of a victim close to be sacrificed,
The sun is coming into Leo,
He will martyred for his Fiancé.

Comment:  This is the continuation of the previous quatrain. Pope John Paul II will be captured in France and be martyred for his love of Christ. Leo is the pope, Sun is Jesus Christ, Fiancé is the beloved Bridegroom the Lord.


After combat and naval battle,
The great Neptune in his bell tower,
Red adversary turns pale with fear,
Putting the great Ocean in terror.

Comment: Neptune symbolizes the Evil One. With major land and sea battles, China will cause much bloodshed and terror in the South East Asia. Neptune in the highest bell tower means the toll of human life will be high.

The Divine Word, man incarnated,
Heaven and earth ruled by His mystical way,

South will endure a great drought,
At the lower part of Asia will be a great earthquake,

Or aligned closely to each other,
Cold, drought, and dangers along national borders,

Near the time of solar/lunar eclipse,
Which shall happen between March and April,
O what a great loss! Thanks to two great ones with kindness,
By land and sea shall assist all parties.

Comment: I think the earthquake in Turkey and Greece shall happen between March and April. Two great ones can only be Europe and US who come to offer quake relief to both countries.

A long season passed after a great air battles,
A great tree will fall in the middle of a city,
Rats, roden, rebellious subordinates,
Then Henry the monarch shall fall.

By the great swelling of Heb., Po., Tag., Tiber of Rome,
And by Lake Leman and Aretin,
Two great leaders and cities of Garonne,
Seized, dead, drowned, human booty divided.

To avoid a great confusion,
Loss of lives and innumerable treasure,
Thou should not go further there,
France! Remember what I have said.

Comment: Another pleading from the prophet whose love for his country was unquestionable.

Kings and princes shall raise idols,
Divinators and false prophets elevated,
Object of gold and precious stone,
Interpreted by the soothsayers.

Comment: The world including their leaders no longer believe in God. They become paganistic worshipping nature, riches, idolizing New Age idols such as forces, nature, UFO, universe, etc. In place of  God, they adore false prophets and soothsayers (Just read all the books and web pages about Nostradamus’s prophecies you will realize what I am writing.)

A Libyan prince becomes more powerful in the West,
France falls in love for Arabian language,
Being a learnt man, he will condescend,
To have Arabian language translated into French.

Comment: France is blinded enchanted in supporting Muslim countries especially toward the extremists such as Libya. It exports the its beloved Muslims modern weaponry including nuclear ones. Some days they will use the same military technologies against France.

Because of the defeat and for peace shall join the Empire,

Seven nations agree in three months,
To conquer the Apennines Alps,
But the tempest and cowardly Italians,

People that live around Tar, Lot and Garonne,
Be on guard going over Apennine Alps,
Your grave is near Rome and Ancona,

Heaven foretells about Lyon city,
through clear signs and fixed stars,
The time of changes is approaching,
Because of Christian lukewarm ness.

Comment: City of  Lyon in Southern France will be devastated in WW III. God withdraws His protection because French people are neither cold or hot.

French kingdom you shall be changed  much,
The Empire will be moved to another location,
You shall be subject to other customs and laws,
Rouen and Chartres shall cause you much worst.

The Republic of a great City,
With great toughness shall not surrender,
The king will go out at the sound of the city trumpet,
The ladder is placed to the wall and the whole city repent.

Comment: Before WW III changes its tide, the leader of French troops, against his people’s will decides to surrender to the more powerful Muslim troops who are encircling them, in order to save lives. In desperation and distress, French people become repentant of their past sins and ask God for Mercy.

Near Duoro, by Cyrenian Sea,
Shall penetrate Pyrenees Mountains,
The lesser power and close penetration,

A great army led by a young man,
Shall yield to the enemy,
But the old man born at the sign of the Half Hog,
Shall make Chalon and Mascon friends.

Great Britain including England,
Shall suffer greatly by flood,
The new league formed in Ausonia shall make war,
Against them, they shall come to attack.

Nostradamus used the name Great Britain 150 years before it was invented. The Great Britain shall suffer a great flood right after WW III starts with the invasion on Italy by Muslims and Russians who will form a formal Alliance and a declaration of war on Western countries including Europe and US.

Those  in the Islands which are besieged for a long time,

When the lame man assumes the reign,
A bastard close to him shall be his competitor,
He and his kingdom shall be so corrupted,
That before it heals, it will be too late.

Comment: King Henry of France always walk with a limb. One of his close associates will betray him and compete for his position being the leader of France and of the whole world. Henry’s successor unfortunately is a corrupted person who starts the decay of France and consequently the whole world leading ultimately to the rise of the antiChrist.

Naples, Florence, Fayenza and Imda,
Shall be in so much distress,
Being pleased with the suffering Nola,
Who complains about being mocked by the chief.

Comment: Italy will be divided with the internal local interests during or after WW III.

Pau, Verona, Vicenza, Saragossa,
By the Sword, the country shall be moist with blood,
So great a plague which shall come with great pot,

French and Italian populations will also suffer from chemical and biological weapons of which one of the symptoms is sores all over a victim’s body and affecting his heart. the cure can be found locally by drinking tea made with Hawthorn leaves.

In Germany, divers sects shall arise,
Approaching to happy paganism,
Heart captivated, return is small,
they shall return by paying true tithe.

The third climate under Aries,
On October 27th of 1700,
King of Persia shall be captured by Egyptians,
Battle, death, loss, great shame to the Cross.

Comment: The climate of Aries is war. The third climate is WW III. Nostradamus twice used the year of 325AD, the year of first Nicaea Council to date a very significant event in human history, therefore, 1700 AD was actually 1700 + 325 = 2025 AD At the end of WW III, the Iranian leader will retreat to Egypt and shall be captured by an angry Egyptian mob on that day. Many Christians were persecuted and martyred by Muslim occupying force controlled by Iranians.

The chief of Scotland and six of Germany,

The great city shall be made desolate,
Not one of the inhabitants shall survive,
Wall, sex, church, virgin violated,
By sword, fire, plague, cannon, people shall die.

Comment: The horrific description of modern wars especially WW III. Virgin violated or women being raped, no survivor in major cities, chemical and bio logical weapons (plagues) take place in the war mentioned here. This description does not fit the norms of the two previous world wars. Thus, it seems to describe the coming World War with the mentioned atrocities carried out by the Eastern Alliance troops.

The chief of Ausonne shall visit Spain, By the sea, he shall stay at Marseilles,
He shall languish a long time before death,
After his death, great marvels shall be seen.

Comment: Ausonne is the city of the modern Bordeaux where King Henry will reside after he withdraws from the public life. He shall visit Spain en route to Marseilles where he will pass away. For a saintly leader, many miracles will happen through his intercession after his death.

French fleet, do not come near Corsica,
Much less to Sardinia, thou shall repent it,
All of you shall die while waiting for help,
Swimming in blood, captured, thou  still do not believe me.

Comment: French fleet will not heed Nostradamus’s warning in entering Mediterranean Sea. They shall be ambushed by smaller but faster Muslim speed boats and sunk. Most of French troops will die there.

From Barcelona, a great army shall come ashore,
Marseilles shall tremble with fear,
Islands (Malta) shall be seized, help by sea will be shut up,
Thy invaders shall swim to shore.

The great Satyr and Tiger of Hyrcanie,
Shall be a gift presented to those of the Ocean,
And the admiral of a fleet shall come out of Carmania,
Who shall land in Thyrren Phocean.

Comment: Hyrcania is now known as Caspian coast of Iran. Satyr and Tiger might be the spiritual and civil leaders of  Iranian radical Islamics. Carmania, now Kerman or the Iranian side of Strait of Hormuz. Tyrren or Tyrrhenian Sea including the West coast of Italy. Phocean is the modern Marseilles. The Allied Force lead by Americans cannot enter Mediterranean Sea, therefore, finds it is easier to defeat Iran-led Muslim force by attacking their homelands instead. US shall capture Iranian leaders and their land from Strait of Hormuz. They then shall move on to liberate Italy and Marseilles together with French and British troops.

The tree long dead and withered,
One night shall grow green again,
Saturnian King sick, His Prince tied,
Feared by his enemies, he shall fail his boat anew.

Comment: Long lost Faith of the Church shall be renewed eventually after WW III. Heavenly Father ( Saturnian King ) and Our Lord Jesus Christ (His Prince) shall send us Grace to renew the face of the earth.

When the world is near its last period,
Saturn again shall be late in return,
The empire shall turn into evil nations,
Eye being plucked by hawk at Narbonne.

Comment: Saturn here stands for our Lord Jesus Christ. Nostradamus always used Saturn, not for an astrological formation but for indicating God or the Son of God. Close to the End of the world, before the Second Coming of our Lord, the "empire" or the most powerful countries on earth shall become very evil. One of the favorite sports is to let hawks plucking out the eyes of prisoners or Christians.

In Avignon where the chief of the Empire,
Shall stay because Paris is desolated,
Tricast shall stop Hannibal anger,
Lion by change shall be much suffered.

Comment: King Henry of France shall have his residence in Avignon, the new capital of France as Paris is totally ruined and become uninhabitable. He will be the new leader of the whole world. Tricast consists of US, France, and England. Hannibal just like Hannibal of old who frequently attacked Rome, symbolizes Muslims this time. After WW III, England will suffer most due to change or spiritual purification which often requires a great deal of sufferings. Her surviving population will probably reduced to one-thirds.

Five hundred years or more they will take notice,
Of him who was the ornament of his time,
Suddenly the revelation will be enlightened,
For that century alone, they will be content.

Comment: Nostradamus composed his prophecies around 1555AD. Thus, 500 years later or around the 21st century, we will understand and appreciate his writings. He prophesied mainly for us. The century is our century, the 21st. On the other hand, most interpretations being made of his prophecies are nonsense for the most parts.

The Moorish law shall be on decline,
After it, another one more seducing,
Boristhenes (Dnieper) shall be the first to fall,
By gifted tongue that law shall be most attractive.

Comment: Islamics will disappear and be obsolete. A new religion, contrary to Catholicism will be introduced by the extremely charismatic antiChrist. The first will be enchanted by him will be Ukrainian region, a Catholic region.

A new law shall govern a new land,
Enclosed Syria, Judea, and Palestine,
The great Muslim Empire shall tumble,
Before the Sun finishes his cycle.

Comment: Catholicism shall replace Islams for the occupied Middle East. Muslim countries shall surrender to the West at the end of WW III before the 21st century is over. God's Hand is in all things. WW III is predestined by God and by men.

Two royal brothers shall wage a fierce war,
The war shall become immortal,
Both will occupy places of power,
Power and life will be the issues.

Comment: Government and society will be divided in two camps: conservative and liberal, good vs. evil. the issues of the debate tend to be mortal ones concerning governing power and life&death issue such as federal control, taxing, abortion, religion, etc.

Among French men, the least honored,
Will become victorious over his opponent,
By him, force and terror will be tried for a short time,
A shot from an arrow, the envious one shall die.

Comment: One of the closest associates of King Henry of France, the most despicable man, shall become jealous of Henry, and shall take over the reign of France through conspiracy and political manipulation. He shall create many enemies due to the terrorizing tactics that he uses to govern. His reign will be cut short by an assassination with an arrow. There will be no more guns at this point in the human history as our modern civilization and lifestyle already comes to an end after WW III through the most thorough purification by God since the Deluge of Noah's time.


From Arras and Bourges, great banners of the dark-colored men,
A great number of Gascons shall fight on foot,
Those along Rhone shall shed Spanish blood,
Near the mountain where Saguto seats.

Comment: Dark-colored men are Muslims. Gascons are French men (from Gascony). Saguto is the city on the east coast of Spain. French troop shall invade Spain to fight Muslim forces during WW III. Many Spanish shall die for siding with Middle Eastern Muslims.

The impotent prince is angry at complaints and quarrels,
About rape and pillage that France and Libya have done,
Great trouble by land and by sea infinite sails,
Italy alone shall drive away French.

After King Henry of France dies, gradually the world turns mad again. There will be no respect for international law with countries fighting each other. The world becomes a fertile ground for the emergence of the antiChrist.

Cross, peace by the Divine Word accomplished,
Spain and France will be united together,
Great disaster is near, combat is sharp and bitter,
No fearless heart shall not be trembled.

Comment: Through the intercession of  Our Lord Jesus Christ (Divine Word), Faith shall be renewed through out a period of peace for mankind. During this time, Spain and France shall become good neighbors. But this peace will be short-lived as fighting and bloodshed will start again and will reach its climax under the reign of the antiChrist. This period of peace mentioned here will happen after WW III, not applied for WW II because after WW II, we saw the period of peace but we also saw a decay of Faith.

The new clothes shall be discovered,
The malice, conspiracy, and machination,
The Premier person shall die, who shall challenge it,
Venice shall color a trap.

Comment: Indecent fashion which will be forbidden after WW III will be adored by men again. Then moral decay, evil, and the use of instruments and machines will make a comeback after the whole world live in peace without them, under the most simplistic living conditions. In Italy, a premier leader challenges or warns about the perilous danger of modernization and he will assassinated.

The chief of the army in the middle of a crowd,
Shall be wounded by an arrow through his thighs,
Geneva  in tears and distress,
Shall be betrayed by Lausane and Swiss.

Comment: Internal conflict or civil war in Switzerland. The battles will be conducted with crude weapons such as bow and arrows, swords and spears, and so on as modern weapons will be completely demolished and forbidden after WW III.

He who shall be covered with a great cape,
Shall perform some great acts,
The twelve red ones shall soil the cover,
Under murder, murder will be committed.

Comment: This quatrain deals with the suspicious death of Pope JP I who reigned only 33 days in 1978.

The sudden death of a premier person,
Shall dictate a change, put another one in charge,
Late coming but so high at a young age,
By land and sea, he will stir up fear.

Comment: I think this quatrain deals with the change in leadership in either China or Iran or both. A relatively young man will take over the power and he will initiate WW III against the West or US and Asian countries both by sea and land.

The change shall be very hard,
The city and country shall be benefit,
Prudent heart put in, unworthy expelled,
Sea, land, people, estate shall all change.

Comment: After WW III, many changes in lifestyle, standard, faith, daily life, society, literature, education ,law, etc shall take place. Changes shall make life difficult at first but all mankind will benefit eventually. The whole world shall live basically like Amish people, relying only on the land and the labor of their hands. There will no more modern conveniences, machinery, factory, entertainments, and so on which shall be completely destroyed by WW III and by the Act of God.

Underground, a faint voice of a holy woman is heard,
A human flame shall see a divine one,
Ground shall be dyed with their own blood,
And the holy temples being destroyed by the wicked.

Comment: The Church will go underground in Europe, China, and in the Muslim countries, in the occupied cities during WW III. True believers shall be burnt alive but they shall see God facing death. The Muslim occupying force shall tear down churches.

The sublime bodies always visible to the eye,
Shall become obscure due to their reasons,
Walking corpse with forehead, sense, and invisible heads,
Sacred prayers shall be diminished.

Comment: This quatrain reminds me a vision that Blessed Anna Emmerich, a German holy nun and stigmatist had. Men have become walking dead representing here spiritually as a body with obscure head which cannot recognize the Presence of God in their daily lives. This has come about because of their rationalism, man refuses to believe anything he cannot comprehend by reasoning and in turn, he will rationalize his immorality as well. They rely on their own intellect instead of the Faith of their fathers.

When Venus by the Sun be covered,
Under the splendor it shall be an occult form,
Mercury in fire shall expose them,
Through a warlike clamour, it will insulted.

Comment: Venus is sex or sin of flesh; Sun is God or Son of God; Mercury stands for the Divine chastisement.

The Divine chastisement shall purge the whole world with fire through wars.

The Sun shall be eclipsed by Mercury,
And shall not be seen except for second heaven,

Jupiter more joined to Venus than the moon,
Appears in white fullness,
Venus hidden under Neptune whiteness,
Struck by Mars through the great Branchus.

Comment: Jupiter stands for man; Venus for sin of flesh; moon for Blessed Virgin Mary; Neptune for the devil; Mars for war; Branchus for the son of Appolo or the Sun, again fro Our Lord Jesus. This quatrain can be read as follows: Mankind shall be close to the harlot than the Virgin. Sexual sins and behavior shall be covered or justified with innocent fanciful terms such as freedom, right, tolerance, ect. Sex or sin of sex shall be truly the gift of Satan in disguise.

A fortress sealed up with the captive,
By explosive fire they will be plunged into abyss,
The traitors shall be buried alive,
Never the sacristes in such a pitiful schism.

Comment: Sacristes is the organization of the Roman Catholic Church in charge of books and property meaning symbolically here doctrines and publication. By their heretical influence, liberal, homosexual, and feministic thoughts, they will lead to a great schism in the Church. With this mortal sin, they will be buried deep eternally in hell.

Noise of weapons shall be heard in air,
In that same war, the divines will be enemies,
They will unjustly debate the Holy Laws,
By thunder and war, true believers shall die.

Libra shall reign in Western land ( Hesperia),
The monarchy shall rule over land and sky,
Nobody else shall see Asian forces perished,
Till seven shall hold hierarchy in succession.

General Henry of French troop, defending the last French stronghold, is about to surrender to save the lives of the city residents. Suddenly, the Divine Providence by destiny, comes to assist him driving back the Muslims with the hostile natural elements such as strong rain, storm, wind, and dust, etc. This decisive battle with a clear evidence of the Divine Hand shall dispirit the Muslim invaders turning the tide of WW III toward the Western forces led by General Henry.

But the worldwide destruction and also the defeat of his enemy have been foretold by the Blessed Virgin Mary who has shed so many tears of blood but no one heeds her messages. Eventually, all tyrants and evil princes and lords of the earth shall be put to death by God and the whole world shall repent and worship Him anew.

In the year Saturn and Mars are equally fiery,

In the year that comes right after Venus,
The two most evil ones of Asia and Africa,
Shall be said to come from Rhine and Hyster,

Selin monarch, Italy shall live in peace,
Kingdoms united, a Christina king of the world,
Dying, he shall want to be buried in Europe, After he has chased away the sea pirates.

Here Selin monarch means a Marian king who has a great devotion to the Virgin. Under the Marian King Henry of France, the whole world shall be united after WW III. He shall chase the sea pirated or Muslim invaders who originally land on Marseilles coast.

Near a great river, a great trench, earth dug out,

A serpent seen near a royal bed,
By a lady at night dogs shall not bark,
Shall be born in France a prince so royal,
From Heaven he comes as all princes shall realize.

He is given to  the world by God in order to defeat the Muslims, put an end to WW III, unite all nations, and restore and propagate Catholicism throughout the whole world.


The pope (augur) shall lay his hand on the King’s head,
And pray for peace in Italy,

Those of Venus shall take hold of all Africa,
Saturn or the Sun no longer holds their kingdoms,

The great one after shall cause great tumult among the clergy,
The second elected in absence, debased in his goods,
His favorite bastard shall be murdered.

Comment: Pope JP II shall flee from Rome to the southern France by boat and shall be captured and martyred there. One will be elected to be the new Pope but will not reign long or will be rejected by the cardinals. One more shall be elected who is so consumed with materialism. After his election, his bastard or long-time lover will be murdered. This is an antipope who might be the one who will abolish the celibacy tradition for priesthood.

The unhappy one shall die of grief,
His conqueress shall celebrate hecatomb,
The former law and free edict shall be renewed,
The wall and seventh prince shall go to the tomb.

The great royal, once gold, now augmented with brass,
Treaty broken, war set in motion by a young man,
People afflicted, chief lamented lost,
Muslim blood shall cover the ground.

Comment: The continuation of the last quatrain. Many years had passed since the end of WW III. Mankind enjoyed an unprecedent period of peace with Faith reaching the highest level ever. Throughout the world, everyone has become catholic, living a simple life relying on their own labor and the land. Then Faith begins to decay, men commit sins again. Middle East the occupied territories demand more independence. Islamic extremism finds its way back to the young  Middle Easterners who feel like the second citizen of the Empire, controlled by the Western countries. Young Muslims begin many revolts against the European Roman Empire causing much bloodshed on both sides.

By the death of a Latin monarch,
By those he had assisted to rise in reign,
The fire will shine, booty divided,
Public death to those daring a revolt.

Comment: After the death of King Henry of France, there will be a power struggle among those he had assisted to rise in ranks. They will become corrupted causing much bloodshed, and they shall persecute their opposition using the public executions.

The Kingdom and King will be enslaved under Venus,
Saturn shall exert power over Jupiter,
Law and reign bestowed by the Sun,
Shall be most violated by Saturnians.

Comment: Venus: sex, sin of flesh; Saturn or Sun : God, Son of god; Jupiter: men ; Saturnian: Christian or catholic. the whole world is submerged under the filth of sex and pleasure. God will exert His just measures to correct the course men are taking. they have trampled on the Divine Laws and the worst offenders are the most blessed catholic who will be judged most severely.

The Arab prince, Mars, Sun, Venus, Lyon,
the reign of the Church shall be overcome from the sea,

The Slavic nation by military power,
Shall rise high a degree,
They shall elect their prince born a provincial,
Crossing sea, their army climb the mountains.

By fire and sword not far from Black Sea,
They shall come from Iran to occupy Trebisonde,
Pharos and Methelin shall quake, Sun be happy,

Liberty shall not be recovered,
Taken away by black, fierce, and wicked villain,
when the matter of the pont(iff) be opened,
By Hitler, Venice turns into a fascist republic.

Comment: When liberty was taken away with the “business as usual” or silent acceptance from Pope Pius XII, Italy was run by lunatic fascists. “Pont” here is the abbreviation of “pontiff”, not a French word meaning bridge.

All over a great city,
Soldiers will be in fields and towns,
Paris assaulted, Rome incited,
Great plundering shall be done on the pont (iff).

Comment: Again the word “pont” is the English word for Pontiff for this quatrain to make any sense at all. Holy Father JP II will suffer martyrdom.

The land of Attica, once a head of wisdom,
Now shall be the Rose of the world,
Pont(iff) ruined with his great pre-eminence of papacy,
(The boat) shall be submerged and shipwrecked by waves.

Comment: the antiChrist shall come from Attica of Greece. He shall kill the last Pope , “Peter of Romans”, put an end to the hierarchy of Rome that we presently know. the boat being shipwrecked symbolizes the troubled Pontiff.

When all are well, good for both Sun and Moon,
Abundant, its ruin is approaching near,
Heaven advances to change your future, Into the same state as the seventh rock.

The brother of a sister by crude simulation,
Shall mix rose with mineral.
Give to his sister, a slow old woman,
She dies after tasting, a simple and rural act.

Comment: Euthanasia is prophesied here.

The great monarch who shall succeed the deceased,
Shall lead an illicit and lubricious life,
Through nonchalance he shall concede to all,
At the end, Salic law shall be stopped.

Comment:  Salic law declared that daughter cannot inherit land or barred woman from ruling France. It here stands for the Catholic tradition of the celibacy on priesthood. An antipope will be elected to succeed a deceased one, probably JP II or his successor. He shall lead a sinful and sensual life, and shall abandon the rule of celibacy to make his personal lifestyle lawful and to please the liberal clergy and public.

Issued out from the true branch of fleur-de-lys,
Set to be the heir of Etruria,
His ancient blood comes from a long lineage,
Shall make Florence to bloom with his coats of arms.

Comment: King Henry of France is the descendent of Charlemagne the Great who united the entire Europe into the Catholic Faith. Henry shall become the second Holy Roman Emperor who will also unite Europe and raise up the Faith again. Henry’s coat of arms shall bear the symbol of lilies. He will reign both France and Italy.

Being born in humble background and at night,
He shall be a sovereign in power and goodness,
He shall resemble an ancient blood being born again,
He shall renew a golden age for his Faith instead of brass one .

Comment: King Henry is born at night from a great lineage, but through a humble background. He shall rule with firmness but also with kindness. He shall remind us of his great ancestor, Charlemagne the Great. He shall bring about the Golden Age for the Church.

Mars elevated to highest tower,
Savoy will return to France,
The people of Lombardy shall have a great fear,
Of those of the Eagle which is governed by Libra.

Comment: Mars is war; Libra is balance or law; Eagle of Libra is USA a country governed by laws. In the latter part or the second half of WW III, Savoy of Italians shall be restored to France who owned it in the 16th century. US shall liberate Lombardy and drive the Muslim occupiers away.

The great ruins of the sacred is not for long,
Provence, Naples, Sicily, Sez and Ponce,
In Germany towards the Rhine and Cologne,
They shall be vexed to death by those of Mongoce.

Comment: Sez and Ponce are See and Pontiff or Rome; Mogoce or Mongoce is the Mongolians of Old ( Quatrain 10.72). The Church’s properties shall be looted and Clergy murdered under the Russian and Muslim advancements toward Europe including Germany, France, and Italy. Germany shall be ruled by a Mongolian of Old. As Germany lies in the northern Europe, adjacent to Russia, Mongolian of Old has to symbolize the Russian troops. Thus, Quatrain 10.72 indicated by the year of 1999 and seven months, a leader of Russia shall be selected and later terrorize the whole world like the Mongolian king of Old. In the prophetic language, “seven” might not literally mean seven but only means a completion. Thus , Nostradamus might mean that some time in the year of 1999, at a destined month, a terrible leader of Russia would be selected. Putin was selected to be the Prime Minister of Russia at the beginning of August of 1999.

Red hats quarrel, a new schism,
When one Sabine being elected Pope,
Great sophism shall be produced against him,
And Rome shall be damaged by Albanians.

He shall be betrayed by Byzantines (Turkey),
The ancient Rhodes (Greece) shall come to meet him,

Eventually, Islamic fundamentalists shall team up with Greece to weaken and topple the Turkish government. After Turkey falls into the hands of Muslim extremists, Russia shall attack southern Europe together with Muslims going through Turkey and Hungary.

After the great affliction to the Scepter,
Two enemies can overcome one another,
A fleet from Africa shall show up in Hungary,
By sea and land, horrible facts.

Comment: After the death of King Henry of France, Europe shall become weakened and unstable. Faith and morality will fall into decay again. Western camp and Eastern camp begin equal in military strength. Muslim navy will soon invade and attack Europe again.

Not out of Spain, but out of ancient France,
One shall be elected to govern the trembling ship,
Forced to cooperate with his enemy,
Who during his reign shall endure a cruel plague.

Comment: Here Nostradamus prophesied on the election of Pope JP II who would be elected over a Spanish cardinal in 1978. He will be struggling to fight off many demands from the liberal forces within his own rebellious Clergy and form the carnal worldly society. He is governing the Church through out a troubling time for the Church and also the whole world. Later on at the onset of WW III, he might be forced to cooperate with the Muslim invaders and escape from them, or flee as they approaching Rome. This fact is unclear to me now but for certainty, Pope JP II will flee from Rome either before or after the Muslims arrive in Rome.

In the year the brothers of lilies shall be of age,
One of them shall hold the great Roman Empire,
The mountain shall tremble, the Latin (Italian) passage opened,

And of Bohemia (Czechs) shall form a new league,

Comment: Romania, England, Poland, and Czechs united to start a revolt against the anitChrist but fail, defeated by Spanish and Italian troops who are under the antiChrist’s command.

The law of the Sun and Venus contending,
Appropriating the spirit of prophecy,
Neither one nor another understood,
By God (Sol) the law of Messiah will prevail.

Comment: Men will struggle between the Divine Law and the law of flesh or animal desires. All things have been prophesied but men will not comprehend the prophecies. But through God’s Design, Love will prevail.

From the Black Sea and the great Tartaria,
A king shall come to see France,
He shall go across Alane (Russia) and Armenia,
And shall leave a bloody rod in Byzantine.

Comment: Tartaria is located in Central Asia, Siberia perhaps. Russian troops shall initiate from the Black Sea region, conquering Turkey, Italy, and eventually will reach France.

Out of Arabian axis,
Shall be born a strong master of Mohammedan law,
Who shall vex Spain, conquer Granada,

By the death of a very old pontiff,
A Roman of good age shall be elected,
It is said that he dishonors the Seat,

Comment: A relatively young cardinal will become pope to replace JP II. He shall reign a long time, probably through out WW III, shall cause many controversies and a schism in the Church because of his law and probably his sensual lifestyle (as prophesied elsewhere). He is the one who will abolish the celibacy rule for priests (Quatrain 5.38). We shall see.

The child destined for greatness but born of a humble birth,

Blood shall rain on rocks,
Sun in the east, Saturn in the west,
War will be near Orgon, great evil seen in Rome,

Comment: WW III occurs according to the Divine Plan as God is present in both East and West, both in Western and Eastern Alliances. Rome shall be occupied and inflicted. The tabernacle of the Lord or the Presence of the Holy Trinity (Tridental) shall be removed from Rome by the fleeing of Pope JP II.

Honor and complaint bring about a futile attempt,
Galley crafts shall venture through Latin seas enduring cold and hunger,
Not far from Tiber, the earth shall be soaked with blood,
Upon mankind various plagues inflicted.

Comment: Because of the antiChrist’s oppression and humiliation, a futile mismatched attempt or revolt will be carried out by sea. The rebels fleet shall be destroyed when it gets closer to Rome, probably the Seat of the antiChrist who shall inflict much suffering on the world besides the natural causes.

In the Danube and Rhine,
The great camel coming to drink will not repent,
Rhone and more so those from Loire shall tremble,

The Church of God shall be persecuted,
And the holy temples shall be plundered,
The child shall search for his dead mother’s breast,

The antiChrist shall persecute all Christians, shall destroy temples or churches, shall murder citizens. Many shall hate him even common enemies such as former Muslims and Polish Catholics shall become allies in revolting against the antiChrist.

Of Trojan heart, one shall be born with a German heart,
Who shall hold high power,
He shall chase away Arabic people,
Restore the Church to its pristine preeminence.

Comment; Again the antiChrist shall exploit the hatred Middle Easterners have against the Western Europeans to expand his world conquest. He shall destroy the Church and many temples. At the end, a courageous German leader shall defeat the antiChrist’s followers or Muslim descendants. He shall restore the Church and the Christian Faith. The Sanctuary of the Lord, once in Rome, shall be moved to Germany.

All the degrees of Ecclesiastical honor,
Shall change into Quirinal dial (Sun Dial),
And Martial Quirinal shall be in flame,
Afterwards, King of France shall turn it into Vulcanal.

Comment: All the chronology concerning the spiritual state of the Church of Christ shall resemble a Sun Dial in which the dial shall point toward the south but the dial is flaming. If the North of the sun dial is at 0 AD, the very opposite end or South of the Sun Dial will be 2000 AD. Thus, around 2000 AD, the world will be inflamed with wars. But afterwards King Henry of France shall turn all weapons literally into craft-smith or ploughshare (Vulcan is the Roman god of blacksmiths and crafts.)

The two united shall not be united for long,
After thirteen years, one shall become Barbarian governor,
They shall cause such a loss on both sides,

Comment: The two united are USA and USSR. The Cold War ended in 1987. But 13 years later or 2000 AD, Russia shall support Iran and other Muslims (barbarians) countries pushing the world toward WW III. Both US and Russia shall suffer greatly. The last line can mean that US shall support Rome and Papacy or the faithful seeing the destruction of Rome is moved to pray for the Pope and the Church.

The sacred cherubim shall bow down his wings,
At the coming of the great Judge,

Of the two laws, the evil one shall surrender,

Those that shall undertake subvert techniques (plans),
In the kingdom unequal in power and invincibility,
Shall by fraud advertise (advertis) for three nights,
When the greatest one shall read Bible at the table.

Comment: It is amazing that Nostradamus had used the word “advertise” 500 years ago. This describes Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign.

One shall be born out of the gulf and immeasurable city,
Born of parents obscure and dark,
Who shall reveres the power of the King,
Wishing destruction upon Rouen and Eureux.

Comment: the antiChrist will be born either in Attica or Jerusalem. He will have an ambition to be a King. His parents are evil people. the last line is not clear to me, Rouen and Eureux might be Middle East and Europe respectively. Rouen sounds like Ruin and Eureux sounds like Eurow or Europe.

By Switzerland and neighboring places,

Swarm of marine locusts and insects,
The fault of Lake Leman (Geneva) shall appear naked.

Full of rivers and Athenian filed,
They will be surprised by light horsemen,
By the Albanians – Mars in Leo and Saturn in Aquarius.

Comment: Greece will be the new commercial center of the world after WW III. They shall be attacked by Albanians when mankind turns bad again. And nations shall fight against nations until the mergence of the antiChrist.

After the Seat tenured for seventeen years,
Five shall change in revolutionary time,
After that, one shall be elected the same time (with his predecessor),
Who will not be conformable to the Romans (clergy).

Comment: Pope Pius XI (1922-1939); Pius XII (1939 –58); John XXIII (1958 – 63) ; Paul VI (1963-78) ; John Paul I (1978-78) ; John Paul II (1978 – present). JP II has been facing an unprecedented open opposition from some of the Clergy who supposedly should be loyal to the Vicar of the Church.
Under the territory of the round luminary globe,
When Mercury shall dominate,

In the middle of the world, a rose shall bloom,
For a renewal, blood shall be shed in public,
One shall be censored in telling the truth,
Then at an appointed time, along-waited one shall come.

Comment: Blessed Virgin Mary, who is often symbolized as a rose, has warned us about the snares of the devil, the need to return to God, and the Divine Purification, but we chose not to listen. Bloodshed is needed for the purification of this sinful world. The long-waited one, King Henry of France, shall put all things in order again.

Born deformed through horror suffocated,
In the habitable city of a great King,
Severe verdict against the slaves being revoked,
Hail and thunder, condom cannot be estimated.

Comment: A deformed baby is aborted by induced premature labor, left alone to be suffocated to death in a well-to-do prosperous city. Sever punishments shall be metered out against those who are slaves to sexual desires. The word “condom” in the last line indeed is the name of the loathful contraceptive device. Its effect on society is signified by thunder and lightning of which use provokes the anger from Heaven.

At the climatique degree of forty eight,
At the end of Cancer, so great a drought,
Fish in sea, river, lake shall be hectically boiled,
Bearn, Bigorre by heavenly fire in great distress.

Comment: 48 Celcius degree equals to 118 Fahrenheit degrees, very warm indeed. Nostradamus was ahead of his time as he used the temperature units which were not invented until centuries later. Here the global warming is prophesied.

In the year five hundred eighty more or less,
One shall attend a strange cycle,
In the year seven hundred and three (Heaven witnesses),
Many reigns, one out of five shall be changed.

Comment: Sometimes Nostradamus dated the greatest events starting from 325AD, the year of the first Council of Nicaea. The year 589 really is (1)589 + 325 = 1914AD. Thus, the second year 703 is actually is (1)703 + 325 = 2028AD, the year WW III shall end, one out of five countries will be annihilated.

Norway, Denmark and Britain, By two unit brothers shall be vexed,
The Roman chief will come from French blood,
His force shall be repulsed to the forest.

Comment: The Northern Europe, the coastal areas including England shall be attacked and blockage by Muslim –Russian navies (two brothers).

Those who are esteemed in the kingdom for their wisdom,
Upon the royal change shall become poor,
Some exiled without help or gold,
Books and literature shall not be of great value.

Comment: After WW III, under the reign of King Henry of France, religion or theological study shall become the main subject in learning institutions. All modern paganistic books and writings including scientific ones shall be destroyed and discarded as the present societies with modern conveniences shall cease to exist.
I believe that right before the end or right after the end of WW III, Three Days of Darkness, which is an Act of God and a horrific event with the level of magnitude equal to the Deluge, shall take place to render the ultimate purification of the earth  in which all evil persons shall be taken into hell by the evil spirits. All modern buildings and structures shall be destroyed. Only the homes of the blessed ones shall be left standing.

For a while, the temples of many colors,
White and black shall be mixed,
Red and yellow take away their possession,
Blood, earth, plague, famine, fire, water cripple them.

Comment: Churches will be colorful, decorated in pagan rituals, nothing sacred any more. The  Divine Liturgy and Gospel will be watered down and altered, not totally true but not totally false either. The reference of God becomes neutral or non-gender.
Russian and Chinese or communists shall loot all church properties. War, famine, flood, fire shall destroy these pagan churches.

A dubious one shall not stay long in power,
The majority still want to sustain him,
Bu the captiole (Capitol) will not want him to reign,
His great chair cannot be maintain.

The true flame shall engulf a lady,
Who puts her innocent in fire,
Before the assault, passion will aroused,
In sins (Seville), monster like ox shall be seen.

Comment: “Seville” is “les evil” or sins. Ox monster in sin taken from the tradition, the ancient Minotaur monster who demanded the sacrifice of the innocent children. Here the vision describes a lady who committed an abortion to kill her innocent baby shall be burnt in a true or eternal flame of hell.

The false union shall not last,
Some changes, most reformed,
In the ships, people enclose,
Then in Rome there will be a new pope (leo-part)

Comment: Some times Nostradamus used Leo to imply the Pope. The European Union shall be disintegrated. Jews ,Christians, and political prisoners shall be shipped to Malta and adjacent islands in Mediterranean Sea for extermination or incineration. Their remains probably will be thrown into the sea. There will be many massive war crimes even more than the WW II because killing the infidels is considered as a solemn Muslim duty. Eastern Allies shall set up a new “pope” or the antipope in Rome. “Leo-part” does not means an animal but means the counterpart of a Pope.

When those of Artic pole united,
In Orient (East) shall be a great fear and trembling,
The newly elected shall maintain the great temple,
Rhodes and Byzantine shall be stained with Muslim blood.

Comment: When US and Russia become friends, WW III shall start with Russia-Muslim Alliance shall invade Europe and with China oppressing her neighboring countries and fighting against American troops. Greece and Turkey will also be destroyed by Muslim forces.

Of the great fisherman, brought to ruinous trouble,
A young, black, red shall take over the hierarchy,
The traitors (proditeurs) shall carry it out on a misty day.

He shall ruin the Holy See with his new laws which promote sensual or sexual lifestyle among the Clergy with the abandonment of celibacy tradition.

Four years he shall keep the Seat in good shape,
Then shall follow a libidinous life,
Ravenne, Pisa, Veronne shall lend a support,
To elevate the cross of the pope in life.

Comment: the new pope shall keep the Church unchanged for four years, then he shall reveal his true sensual and worldly lusts. Only Italian cities lend him support, the rest of the Catholic world shall recognize him as an antipope.

The bones of the great Roman (Pope) found,
Sepulcher shall appear in marble,
Earthquake in April, deeply buried.

Comment: The tomb of St. Peter the first pope was found in 1978 underneath the Vatican. Catholics in majority have become pseudo-catholic or paganistic with a catholic flavor. An earthquake in April before WW III shall bury his grave deeply forever. Quatrain 6.66 symbolizes a grave evil.

The great pity shall be here before long,
Those that used to give will be forced to receive,
Naked, hungry, frosted, mutiny,
Passing mountains, making great disorder.

Comment: Russian people used to give out aid to other countries now have to receive the international aids instead. They shall go over Alps mountains to invade France, but they will over-extend themselves later on in the conflict and their Muslim allies shall take over the commanding position.

A world leader, the great Henry,
First beloved, later feared and doubted,
His fame and praise shall surpass heavens,

leaders from US, England, and Rome.

The great Pilot shall be sent by Royal mandate,
To leave the fleet, attain higher post,
Seven years later, he will counter-attack,
Muslim army puts Venice to fear.

Comment: General or Admiral Henry will be asked to leave his post to be the
commander-in-chief of the entire French army to confront the Eastern
aggression. At first, he shall endure many years of defeats probably 15
years as "seven" in prophetic language might not literally mean seven but a
fulfilled period of time or a completion. Then the Western allies under his
command will begin to gain momentum. The word "pilot" indicated a modern
warfare which here is WW III. Upon their retreat, Muslims will burn and
destroy everything in their path as they shall "put Venice into fear."

The heaven shall burn at five and forty degrees,
Fire shall approach a great New City,
Instantly great flame will disperse,
When they give proofs to Norman (Romans).

Comment: Located near 45 degrees are New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Rome, Paris, and Madrid. Norman is the anagram of Roman meaning Clergy. When the Clergy are put on trial in Rome by Muslims, a great Western modern city, probably Paris or New York will be burnt down by a missile with a nuclear warhead.

Those who read these verses, consider them with maturity,
Le not the profane, vulgar, and ignorant be attracted,
All Astrologers, Fools, and Barbarians (Muslims) stay far,
He who does otherwise will be cursed according to sacred rite.

Comment: Foreseeing that his writings would be misinterpreted by astrologers or the so-called experts or the learnt, the ignorant or the merely curious, the profane or those who worship occults, the vulgar or those are uncivilized and irreligious, the fools who misinterprets his prophecies, and barbarians or Muslims whom the prophet much disliked. All those would paint the devout Catholic prophet to some occultic figure. The only way to understand his writings is to be like him, a devout orthodoxical Catholic who shows a great discontent to the heretic and evil doers, who also shows a great contempt to the learnt men, either scientific, cultural, or intellectual. Nostradamus worshiped the Lord and loved his beloved France and his Church. Singling out astrologers, he showed disdain to astrology or superstition or foretune-telling, also indicated that he used astrological terms to convey hidden meanings and to confuse the fools.


In the battle of the great swifting horsemen,
One shall cry out , see the motionless Muslims,
By night they shall kill sheep with shepherd habits,
Red abysm in the deep ditch.

Comment: Muslims shall be used as the instrument of the Divine Chastisement. They shall be the apocalyptical horsemen described through out the Holy Scripture (Joel 2:4). Another form of the Divine Justice is the betrayal of the Clergy and religious as some of them indeed the instrument of the evil one, disguised as the shepherds to lure the ignorant sheep into the deep Abyss of hell.

Angry against the friends of Tarragona,
Sport, laughter, banquet, all at sleep,
The Vicar in Rhone, the city taken by those from Bordeaux.

One night, after banquets organized by the local hosts, the anti-Catholic enemy of the Church shall come from Bordeaux to overrun the local city, burn down the place where the Pope stays and capture or murder him.

Simulated trick of war shall be rare,

The idols swollen with gold and silver,
Which after the rapt (rapture) shall be thrown into the lake of fire,
After all sins and troubles are revealed,
Except those who  have their names enscripted  in marble (in the book of life.)

( Original quatrain in French:

Les simulachres d’or et d’argent enflez,
Qu’ apres le rapt, lac en feu furent jettez,
Au descouvert estaincts tous & troublez,
Au marble escripts, prescripts interiettez.

Comment: It is  amazing the term “rapture” was used here. At the end of the world, after the Lord Jesus judges all souls ever existing on earth for the last time (Final Judgment), the blessed one will be taken up to Heaven to be together with God forever (Rapture), and the damned will be sent to the eternal fire, those whose names are not written in the Book of Life (Revelation). Quatrain number 8.26 might indicate when the end of the world will occur, 3826 AD.

Be on guard French King of thy nephew,
Who shall cause thy only son,
Be murdered making a vow to Venus,
Accompanied at night by 3 and 6.

A Bragamus with twisted tongue,
Shall come and break God’s sanctuary,
Shall open the gate for heretics,
Raise up the military Church.

The rest given hope to be rescued.

Comment: Christians, Jews, and other Western prisoners are being persecuted, shot to death, or being stripped and incinerated.

The sail of the galleys and of big ship hidden,
The great fleet lets little ones coming out,
Ten small ships approaches it, then draws back,
The great ship vanished, joined all united ones to itself.

Comment: Due to the early defeats as the Muslim navies rely on small fast boats equipped with 60-plus mile range anti-ship missiles to sink down much larger ships, the Western naval forces develop a new strategy in which during the battle formation, the large aircraft carrier will allow much smaller ships or boats to go ahead about 60-plus miles, then the carrier will stop or vanish from 60 mile radius, out of Muslim antiship missile range. A galley is a low, fast moving boat.

About midnight, the conductor of the army,
Will save himself, suddenly vanished,
Seven years later, with his fame non blemished,
At his return they will never say yes.

Comment: In 1991, US troops suddenly withdrew from Persian Gulf instead of finishing the job by eliminating Saddam Hussein. More than ten years later even Americans still enjoy the status of the only military super-power of the world, she will not have any allies this time around when US troops come back for another war with Iraq.

Albi and Castres shall form a new league,
New (nine) Arians, Lisbon and Portuguese,
Carcas, Tholose will end their confederation,
When the new chief is the monster of Lauragues,

Comment: Albi is the anagram for Libia; Castres is of Crescent or Muslims; Arians is Germany; Lisbon is Spain; Caras is Russia and Caucasians, Tholose is Thessalonians or Greece, and finally Lauragues is the anagram for Arau (Arab) Leagues. The Eastern Alliance shall consist of all Muslim nations from Middle East and North Africa, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Russia and Caucasian countries, and Greece. The leader will be an Arab or Muslim, an Iranian. Russia an Greece as orthodox Christians probably will end their alliance later on when the Eastern Alliance is led by a brutal Iranian (monster) who hates all infidels or non-Muslims.

The great conflict, they prepare for (at) Nancy,
The Aemathien shall say, all subjugated to me,
The British Island concerns about wine and salt,
Hem, mi, two Phi shall not hold Metz for long.

Comment: The second war with Iraq shall be prepared for Western interests (Nancy might be a code name for the operation.) Aemathien (Americans) shall say all countries are subordinated at her super-power status and military might. Only Britain will support US but finally shall be much exhausted of her resources. “Hem, mi” or “Him, me” and “Two Phi” or two Philips or two English-speaking cousin nations, US and England, who cannot occupy the”Metz” or Mediterranean Sea for long. Both will not succeed this time.

Out of Castillon, on a misty day,
From an infamous woman, a sovereign Prince shall be born,
His surname of breeches on the ground making him posthumous,
Never a worse King in his province.

Comment: The mysterious meaning of the name of the AntiChrist which will be revealed later at a proper time. I quote the original French text for the future generation to figure out the hidden secret. Another meaning of this quatrain is that the AntiChrist will be buried alive as he falls through cracks on the ground surface caused by a great earthquake which will destroy most of Jerusalem. Surname in this case means it is destined or it is written.

Original French verses:

De Castillon figuires jour de brune,
De femme infame naistra souverain prince,
Surnom de chausses per hume luy posthume,
Onc Roy ne fut si pire en sa province.

Relying on murder, enormous adulteries,
The great enemy of the whole human race,
He shall be worse than his grandfathers, uncles, and fathers,
In sword, water, bloody, inhuman.

Comment; The AntiChrist, the continuation of the previous quatrain.

Below Jonchere a dangerous passage,
The Posthume shall bring his troop over,
Pass Pyrenean Mountains without his baggage,
A Duke shall run from Perpinan to Tende.

Comment: The Posthume is the AntiChrist, the one resurrected from the deceptive Death? The AntiChrist moves swiftly to capture Spain. He is the great warrior.

Elected as Pope, he will be mocked,
Suddenly he moved promptly and timidly,
Through his goodness, he provoked his death,
His death in the night shall make his guide fearful.

Comment: Pope JP I was called the "Smiling Pope" whose gentleness and kindness was well-known. He moved swiftly to expose and correct the Vatican banking corruption. That was probably the reason why he was killed one night during sleep with poison. He reigned merely 33 days, the same number as the number of the total years the Lord lived on earth.

The day she shall be saluted as Queen,
The day after the event, the evening benediction,
The feast is justified and valid,
Once humble never before one is so highly exalted.

Comment: The veneration of Blessed Virgin Mary as the Queen of Heaven and earth by the whole world. This might indicate the feat day celebrating the declaration of the new and last Marian dogma in which Blessed Virgin will be recognized as the Co-redeemer, Mediatrix, and Advocate for the whole mankind.

John Paul II the Labor of the Sun in a goat cavern,
Hidden, captured, drawn out by his beard,
Captured, treated like a domestic beast,
By Begourdans shall be brought near Tarbe.

Comment: JP II is captured and ill-treated. He imitates the Passion of the
Lord and Death to the very end of his life. Tarbe is located in the
south-west of France. Begourdans is the anagram for "dungeon" or the evil
ones, born in the dungeon.

Nephew and blood of the new saint come,
His surname means holding up arch and cover,
They shall be chased, put to death, chased nude,
Change their red and black appearance to green.

Comment: Pope JP II and his companions ( red: cardinal; black: priests)
shall be martyred. His surname sounds like "pole" which is used to supports
tent, arch, etc.

The royal son fragrant in libido (burning lust),
To enjoy his first cousin (germaine),
Shall in woman clothes go to the temple of Artemis,
Shall be murdered by the unknown of Marne.

Comment: the life of a homosexual man ends up with a tragic consequence.
Artemis: Venus or sex.

The River Meuse by day in the land of Luxemburg,
Shall discover Saturn and three in luna,
Mountains, plains, town, city, countryside,
Lorrain flood, treason by the great leader.

Comment: The day of the Lord shall come when the great flood comes to the
mentioned areas between Belgium, germany, and France (North east of France).
Three in luna are Eastern Allies fo Muslim-Russia.

In the lowest part of Lorraine,
Shall be basis for german unity,
By those who seize Picards, Romans (Normans) of Mesian (Maisne),
With the invaders (cantons), they will be united.

Comment: Germany shall form a pact with the advancing Eastern invaders. They
will reward Germany with the northern part of France through annexation.
Mesian might mean the Lord or Messia.

Three great horlots shall battle for a long time,
The greatest less shall remain watching,
The great Selin (Muslim) shall no longer be her patron,
Shall call upon her fire, pestilence, death (white), rotten.

Comment: Three great harlots are US, Europe, Russia. The greatest harlot is
US who will be on the sideline at the beginning of WW III. Once her good
customers and allies, Muslims hate US eventually.

The unhappy neptunial shall be celebrated,
With great joy but with sad ending,
Husband and wife turn to disdained Black ( Nore),
God (Phybe), Nore most pitiful.

Comment: Today many marriages are not blessed by God. Phybe or Appolo, the
god of the Sun, here means Jesus Christ. Nore or noire is black or  sinners.

In the time of mourning, the Muslim (Selin) monarch,
Shall go to war with the young American (Aemathien),
France (Gaul) shakes, ship ( bark) in jeopady,
Marseilles (Phocen) to be tempted, real danger in West.

Comment: Iraq goes to war with US and that will lead to WW III, with France
getting involved most greatly. Marseilles shall be attacked by Muslim navy,
but the real push will be in the West through Spain and Portugal. Ship or
barque stands for the Papacy in Rome.

I weep for Nice, Monaco, Pisa, Genoa, Savona,
 Siena, Capua, Modena, Malta,
For them, blood and sword as new year's gift,
Fire, earth trembling, water, bad sad ending.

Comment: All area around Mediterranean Sea shall suffer with WW III possibly
at the beginning of 2004AD.

Betta, Vienna, Comorre, Sacarbance,
Shall try to deliver Pannone (Hungary) to Muslims,
By pike and fire, enormous violence,
The conspirators discovered by a matron.

Comment: Hungary will fall into Muslims after a fight.

Near Sorbin, Hungary being attacked,
The herald of Brudes shall give notice,
Byzantine Chief, Sallon of Sclavonie (Sclauonie),
The law of Arabes they try to convert them.

Comment: Muslims shall attack Hungary.

Cydron, raguse, the city of St. Jerome,
Shall desperately need medical assistance,
King's son dead by the death of two martyrs,
Arab, Hungary, both will go through the same course.

Comment: Hungary probably will be attacked by chemical or biological weapons
by the Muslims who later will suffer the same fate meaning shall be
annihilated with weapon of mass destruction.

O vast Rome, thy ruin approaches,
Not toward thy walls, but of thy blood and substance,
The harshness in letters, shall cause horrible notch,
Pointed sword thrust all the way to the shaft.

Comment: Rome will be ruined to its sacred Dogma and Tradition, not just a
physical damage due to the Muslim invasion. The Church's law will change,
dictated by the occupying forces in order to ruin it and to conform it to
the modernistic heresies.

The chief of London under American (Americh) pressure,
Island of Scotland shall be tried by frost,
Ray Reb shall believe in false antiChrist,
Who shall put them in discord.

Comment: Scotland will try to break away from England.

The earthquake will be so strong in May,
Saturn, Caper, Jupiter, Mercury in Taurus,
Venus also, Cancer, Mars in Nonnay (None),
Then shall hail come bigger than eggs.

Comment:  In the month of May following WW III, a great earthquake shall take place, probably in California.

In the year of 1999 and seven months,
From the sky comes a great King of terror,
Resurrects to great Mongolian (Angolmois) King,
Before and after, Mars (wars) reigns at will.

Comment: At the beginning, I thought seven months here literally means July but now I realize that Nostradamus only imply a perfectly fulfilled time whenever he used the number SEVEN. Thus , with this significant quatrain, the only quatrain that Nostradamus revealed the accurate date for us, the prophet said that at the fulfillment of the destined moment of human history, a world leader will emerge, he will terrorize the whole world in the brutal manner similar to the Mongolian King of Old who once terrorized the whole Asia and Europe. Under his reign, there will be many wars including WW III.

Thus, who is the world leader who would appear in 1999? As you recall, only one significant leader appeared on the political arena of the world in 1999 is President Putin of Russia who was appointed Russian Prime Minister in August of 1999. And Russia’s policy of proliferation of weapon of mass destruction and missile technology is escalated after Putin became the Russian President.

The present time together with the past,
Shall be judged by the grand jovialist,
The world shall be late to realize,
And become disloyal due to the influence of clergical jurists.

Comment: The grand Jovialist is the Loving Lord Jesus Christ, but the whole world have forgotten that as the Merciful God, He is also the just Judge Who shall be slow in anger but eventually will deal this sinful world what we are all deserved. The modernistic, reformist views of the heretical Clergy of our present time are leading the whole world to damnation especially after Vatican II. If the Church was loyal to her Master and Lord, she would received sufficient Graces to avert all dangers for the whole world. She would lead the whole world to holiness.

The revolution of the great number 7th past,
There shall be seen the sports of Hecatombe,
Not far from the great age of millennium,
The buried comes out of their tombs.

Comment: The seventh revolution again is the fulfillment of human history, the End of the world. In the distant future, Christians again shall be persecuted and made into the object of the cruel sports, this time by the incarnated Satan himself. Afterwards, the buried or the dead will all be resurrected from the tombs to receive the Final Judgment from their God.

Long awaited before he finally return,
Into Europe, then appear in Asia,
One issued from the lineage of the great Hermes,
And shall rule over all kings of Orient.

Comment: Hermes is the human race. King Henry of France is sent to us by Heaven. His ancestry is derived from Charlemagne the Great. He will gain respect from both European and Asian countries.

Like a Gryphon (Griffin) shall come the King of Europe,
Accompanied by those of the North (Aquilon),
Of reds and whites shall conduct a great troop,
And shall fight against the King of Babylon.

Comment: Griffin, a mythical monster, half lion half man, is watchful of Russian gold. Red is communist and White is non-communist. Babylon of the Book of Revelation is the land of the Great Harlot which consists of all countries which live according to modern Western civilization and culture where sexual pleasures and sins are adored. This quatrain indicated that Russian together with some European countries will attack the Western Allies which include US, England, and France.

A great king shall land at Nice,
The great empire of death shall be placed there,
By Destinationp (Antipodes) he shall place his horse,
By sea with pillage all vanish.

Comment: Nice is located in the Southern coast of France. Antipodes is the anagram of destination. By sea, Muslims shall attack southern France, then Europe. They shall destroy everything, murder many on their conquering path.

By foot and horse at the second watch,
Shall come to devastate all by sea,
They shall enter the port near Marseilles,
Tears, cries, and blood, never times so bitter.

Comment: ( Same as above )

From Brick to marble, walls shall be rebuilt,
Seven and fifty pacific years,
Joy to men, aqueduct rebuilt,
Health, great fruits, joy, mellifluous time.

Comment: 57 years of peace shall be given to mankind. If 57 peaceful years began after WW II or after 1945, it shall take us to 2002AD, then more war shall begin anew. Now we see that US and England will attack Iraq, triggering WW III. If 57 years begin after WW III or around 2028AD, wars shall occur again and the great antiChrist will emerge some time after 2085AD. I myself do not consider the last 57 years were joyful years for the Faith and for the Church of Christ, and for all mankind. Actually, these years mark the most evil period in human history by far in which the most believers were martyred for the love of Christ, the most innocent blood is shed, the most sexual sins are being committed, the most profane, the most divorces, the greatest Apostasy, and the list keeps going on and on.

Before his father’s eyes, a child perishes,
Afterwards, the father shall enter electrical cord,
The people of Geneva shall be staggered,
The chief lying in the middle like a log.

Comment: Geneva shall be covered with total demolition and dead bodies. the survivors will envy the dead ones, then commits suicide.

From Nismes, Arles, and Vienne come contempt,
They shall not obey at all American (Hesperique) edict,
Even the great labors hard, they still condemn,
Six escape wearing Seraphic (angelic) habit.

Comment: All Europe besides England shall show condemnation to US decision to strike Iraq even though US has labored hard for its justification. Six here including France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Canada, and Russia meaning G-8 group minus US and England, shall appear holy and righteous while they condemn American so-called aggression.

The powerful king shall come into Spain,
Who by sea and land shall subjugate the South,
The evil shall beat down the crescent,
And lower the wings of those of Friday.

Comment: Those of Friday are Muslims. The powerful King here is King Henry of France.

Religion in the name of the seas shall come,
Against the sect of the sons of Adaluncatif,
The deplorably obstinate sect shall be afraid,
Of the two wounded by A. and A.

Comment: the name of the seas is Marina, the female adjective of Marino meaning marine in French. And the anagram of Marina is Marian. Adalunacatif is the Captives of the Moon or Muslims. Wounded by A. and A. can be the AntiChrist, Apostasy, or Atomic bomb. All three forms of Chastisements befall on France and Italy.  This quatrain indicates that the Western army of Catholics devoted or consecrated to the Blessed Virgin Mary beginning with their commander, King Henry, shall defeat the Muslim invaders. The two most wounded of WW III will be France and Italy.

The bright splendor of a merry maid,
Shall shine no more, she without salt,
With merchants, bullies, odious wolves,
All cursed, an universal monster.

Comment: The Great Harlot of Apolyptical Babylon or the sinful countries and societies of the present Western world shall be purified without a trace. They are just like a maid servant who does not prepare for the coming of her Bridegroom, without oil for her lamp, and her salt without taste, good for nothing.

At last the wolf, the lion, ox and ass,
The timid deer shall be with the mastiff,
The sweet manna shall no longer fall on them,
Neither any more vigilance and watching for mastiff.

Comment: A period of the golden peace after WW III, as prophesied by the prophet Isaiah. This might also indicate the period of peace after the reign of the antiChrist while God will chain the Evil One or the great Tempter for thousands years in the dungeon.
