The predictions of Nostradamus

Fortune telling has not exactly been hailed as the most trustworthy source of information. Many people have doubts, and rightfully so. Scientists are generally the greatest skeptics of them all. However, Nostradamus made some rather elaborate predictions for the centuries after he passed away in 1566. In total, he made 6,338 predictions, and about 70% of them have come true. Was he a gifted seer? Or merely good at writing about common events in a vague and cryptic manner?


Nostradamus wrote a book of his predictions. His name as a fortune teller has been well known, but it is increasing in popularity since he predicted many struggles like the Global Financial Crisis in 2008, the war in Iraq, and the bone-chilling events that took place on 9/11. Some even think that Nostradamus predicted that Queen Elizabeth would die this year, but this was later deemed to be false according to Snopes.

Those who have read his book will argue that his predictions could be interpreted in any way. But, that is up to you. For now, it is increasingly interesting to see what Nostradamus predicted for our ever-changing lives. One thing is for sure, he predicted that 2023 will be rather tumultuous.


Wold War III

Nostradamus seemed to know when the world would break into its third great war. This could be related to the war with Russia in Ukraine. Although, the prediction mentions no county names, nor their leader. So, it is unclear whether or not he is referring to that war, or the one happening in Southeast Asia between China and Taiwan. His prediction formally reads: “Seven months the Great War, people dead of evil-doing.”

The pope is said to step down

The next prediction Nostradamus made for 2023 is that pope Francis will step down from his position of power. One might assume this is a good time for a fresh start with a new pope. However, the prediction says that the new pope will be mean and corrupt. His prediction states: “In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will be Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations, after which the seven hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End.”

Humans will visit another planet!

One of the other predictions Nostradamus made was that of space travel. He foresaw humanity landing on another planet. Specifically, the fourth planet from the sun! This has been the dream of many astronauts, so it would be remarkable if this actually did happen. In hi prediction, Nostradamus said a light will fall on Mars. Which, according to astrologers, will open up possibility. It might be a good time to keep an eye on NASA’ activity. They could have a surprise hiding up their sleeve.

A great fire

Another prediction of Nostradamus says that a “Celestial fire on the Royal edifice“. This prediction has fallen a bit short on those who read it. Many people predict interpret his words differently. Some say this is the end of life as we know it. Others say this is when civilization will crumble.

The rise of a new world order

Lastly, Nostradamus predicted that a new world order will rise in 2023. This might seem rather exciting to many people, but what does it mean? According to his prophecy, Nostradamus wrote the new world order will consist of a man and a woman. However, this alliance is not predicted to last very long. It leads one to think of what might happen after that.
