7 For 2017: Here Is What Nostradamus Predicted About 2017

Nostradamus prophecies have baffled experts down the ages with their astonishing accuracy – and as 2017 dawns we look at what the fabled sooth sayer has in store for us this year.

A chemist and apothecary named Michel de Nostradame publishes an almanac titled The Prophecies.

He would stare into a bowl with water and while staring at the water for some time he would “receive” visions of the future.

Nostradamus – as he is famously known– began to have visions at a very early age.

He writes more than a thousand four-line poetic verses called “quatrains,” verses that seem to predict the future.

According to his followers, and numerous historians, the French apothecary managed to predict a lot of things that have actually happened in the last few centuries; including the French Revolution, Adolf Hitler’s rise to power and 9/11.Not only that, it is believed that the 16th-century prophet even managed to predict Trump’s presidential win: “The great shameless, audacious bawler. He will be elected governor of the army: The boldness of his contention. The bridge broken, the city faint from fear.”

However, it is important to note that his prophecies, which he wrote in four-line verse, are greatly open to interpretation and many people claim that nearly all of his past ‘accurate’ predictions are nothing more than modern misinterpretations. Interestingly, there are those who argue that there are some verses that could possibly shed a little light on what we can expect this year. Let’s take a look at 7 for 2017:


1. Floods and drought

For forty years the rainbow will not be seen.

For forty years it will be seen every day.

The dry earth will grow more parched,

and there will be great floods when it is seen.


2. Thunder and conflict 

The great man will be struck down in the day by a thunderbolt.

An evil deed, foretold by the bearer of a petition.

According to the prediction another falls at night time.

Conflict at Reims, London, and pestilence in Tuscany.

3. A battle at sunset 

Shortly before sun set, battle is engaged.

A great nation is uncertain.

Overcome, the sea port makes no answer,

the bridge and the grave both in foreign places.

4. A little break

Pestilences extinguished, the world becomes smaller,

for a long time the lands will be inhabited peacefully.

People will travel safely through the sky (over) land and seas:

then wars will start up again.

5. A royal scandal

Letters are found in the queen’s chests,

no signature and no name of the author.

The ruse will conceal the offers;

so that they do not know who the lover is.

6. A weird version of Animal Farm 

A fox will be elected without speaking one word,

appearing saintly in public living on barley bread,

afterwards he will suddenly become a tyrant

putting his foot on the throats of the greatest men.

7. A weakened West

Twice put up and twice cast down,

the East will also weaken the West.

Its adversary after several battles

chased by sea will fail at time of need.

What do you think? Are these prophecies related to events that may occur in 2017? Is it even possible to predict the future?

    Vision into the future is always unstable and subject to change. Some will manifest as seen, and some may not. Without doubt, the present time is fraught with peril, uncertainty and unrest. Everyone the world over is…”waiting for the other shoe to drop.”
    Michel de Nostradame was an authentic visionary. However, as you mention, the interpretation of his visions is very challenging for many reasons, foremost the changes in language form and usage, as well as the reality that visions are most times presented in something akin to dream form, in that the presentations are pictorial, and from the perspective of the analytic right brain, symbolic.

    #6 has me thinking of the Pope that is currently in power. He lives meagerly, but over the years, he has shown his true colors. He claims guns are evil, yet has an arsenal of weapons in his house that he won’t remove. He tells everyone that Muslims and Islam are peaceful despite the terror they have been reigning down on the world. He expects people to accept refugees, yet he, himself, won’t accept any of these same refugees into his home. He once selected “a few refugees,” but these were not the same refugees that are causing havoc across the world. He’s even putting down his own God. He is a traitor in Pope’s clothes. I am a Catholic and it saddens me to not have any trust in this man.

    In the Gospel of John one finds another example of grace found through food. Jesus feeds five thousand people with five loaves of barley bread and two fish. Talk about an experience of God’s presence in the world around us!. Barley-bread was the provision which the disciples had privately taken with them, for the use of their divine master and themselves. Christian political engagement is changing in this country as believers seek to untangle their faith from the worldliness of partisan politics and ideology. … Soon, Christians became aligned in practice and perception with the Republican Party, pursuing almost exclusively a one-party strategy for political victory. http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2014/02/the-changing-face-of-christian-politics/283859/rose
