Nostradamus Predictions that came true in 2017

Michel de Nostredame or Nostradamus was a French physician and astrologer who lived in the 16th century. He remained famous for his predictions, a lot of which actually happened in the last few centuries. For example, he was right about the French Revolution and Adolf Hitler’s rise to power, as well as 9/11.

Some people even believe that Nostradamus predicted Trump’s victory, or as he called him “the great shameless, audacious bawler.” His prophecies can be interpreted in different ways, but here is what he said about 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.”
