Nostradamus on Coronavirus

Did Nostradamus Predict the Corona Virus outbreak?

Michel de Nostredame is a great French writer, historian and seer. He had predicted innumerable historical events hundreds of years before they had actually taken place and his prophecies are world renowned ones for their accuracy and relevance. He had always aroused the curiosity of people and historians and astrologers now claim that Nostradamus had long predicted the outcome of the Corona Virus.

The Corona Virus is transmitted from human to human and is rapidly spreading across the globe like wildfire. It has and continues to take its toll with millions of people suffering. While we are settling down to these terms, it is wise enough to consider if the great sage Nostradamus did predict the outbreak of the corona virus and if yes, then what did he say about it.

The predictions of Nostradamus are contained in cryptic four lines and are termed as quatrains. They either rhyme or may not. His famous book is called Le Propheties which was published way back in the year 1555. Some skeptics argue that Nostradamus did not actually predict anything, instead his writings are mere coincidence of present-day happenings. The quatrains are very vague and do not specify any name or location, but certainly some sort of divination can be found here. However vast majority of the population across the world believe that Nostradamus did indeed record forecasts for the days ahead.

His works point to the rise and fall of Hitler, the Apollo space vehicle launch, the Hiroshima attacks, and the great Twin Tower attacks and a lot of historical events.

Find below one of his Quatrain:

Century II:53

"The great plague of the maritime city
Will not cease until there be avenged the death Of the just blood,
condemned for a price without crime,
Of the great lady unwronged by pretense.”

Many suggest that this indeed predicts the corona virus outbreak. This quatrain refers to a maritime city. Maritime refers to anything related to the sea. Though the city of Wuhan in China where the outbreak started is not anywhere near the sea, we can link it to the seafood market from where experts say the epidemic started. The word plague vaguely has reference to the corona virus outbreak though.

And here is yet another quatrain of Nostradamus that has a good relevance to the present corona virus outbreak.

"The sloping park, great calamity,
Through the Lands of the West and Lombardy
The fire in the ship, plague and captivity;
Mercury in Sagittarius, Saturn fading."

  • Wuhan indeed has a sloping park where its natives take a stroll.
  • Lombardy is the area in Italy that was the first to get infected by the deadly corona virus.
  • Ship refers to all types of trade across the globe and certainly businesses across continents are under fire due to this viral spread.
  • Plague vaguely refers to the corona virus.
  • Captivity indicates the quarantine that countries around the world are now into.
  • Mercury in Sagittarius- Mercury entered the house of Sagittarius on January 23, when China first announced its viral outbreak.
  • Saturn fading- Saturn transited to the zodiac sign of Capricorn just on the 24th of January, 2020.

Are the above two mentioned quatrains of Nostradamus actual predictions or just interpreted comfortably to the present-day happenings is the sole discretion of the reader.
