Michel de Nôtre-Dame, better known as Nostradamus, was a 16th century French philosopher, who in 1555 published his book ‘The Prophecies‘ where he predicted a series of world events in the future, several of which have been fulfilled over the years.
Among the correct prophecies are the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the 11S, both world wars, Trump’s defeat in the US elections or the coronavirus pandemic.
Therefore, it has a large number of followers. But nevertheless, his predictions are often very ambiguous, since he used enigmatic phrases, which are subject to interpretation.
The writer, Peter Lemesurier explains in his book “Nostradamus: the man, the myth, the truth” that most of his predictions are paraphrases of ancient apocalyptic prophecies from the Bible, complete with historical facts and anthologies of omens.
Nostradamus’ prophecies became popular after predicting the death of the King of France Henry II during the wedding of his daughter Elizabeth with Prince Philip II of Spain, in 1559.
Since that time, they have been taken into account for more than five centuries. With the end of 2021, now it’s time to know what the predictions that await us this year.
Death of a political leader
“The sudden death of the first character, he will be changed and they will put another in his kingdom.” Experts on Nostradamus’ work suggest that he predicts the death of a political leader.
This prediction is the one most likely to be fulfilled, since it is subject to interpretation and could refer to a leader related to sports, music or culture. Something that happens regularly.
Fall of the European Union
Another of his alarming predictions is the supposed fall of the European Union (EU): “Sacred temples of Roman times will reject the foundations of their foundation,” wrote Nostradamus.
Some specialists have determined that Brexit could be the beginning of the end for the political community since after the UK decided not to be part of the EU, other countries could follow in its footsteps and end the entity.
Although the French writer does not indicate what events will cause his downfall, he does portends the siege of a large city within the community.
It is clear that Nostradamus refers to Rome, an empire that had the economic and political power of almost all of Europe and North Africa for five centuries, but the parallels lead us to think about the decline of the European Union.
Hunger and inflation
The coronavirus pandemic has created a great economic crisis that for many will be difficult to overcome. Therefore, it is not difficult to believe this prediction of Nostradamus, in which the arrival of a famine or a global crisis. The prediction goes like this: “Honey will cost much more than candle wax; the price of wheat is so high.”
“Under the opposite Babylonian climate, great will be without shedding.” The interpreters of Nostradamus’ book have come to the conclusion that this phrase refers to one of the great problems of the world in recent years: climate change, which will cause natural disasters, hunger, water scarcity and will break out a war between two countries for their survival.
Another phrase that can refer to climate change is the following: “Like the sun, the head will seal the shining sea, the live fish of the Dead Sea will almost boil.”
Some specialized media have indicated that this prediction may refer to the sea level rise (due to the melting of the poles) due to climate change.
