A Prophecy of Nostradamus of the Coronavirus Pandemic

As we see the coronavirus pandemic spread across the globe, I began to wonder, was it foreseen by Nostradamus?  I found a few references where some of his writings were falsely applied to the current pandemic. Nostradamus, however, does have a track record of predicting other plagues, most notably the plague that struck London in the year 1666, which is fully explained in my work The Decoded Prophecies of Nostradamus.  He helped treat patients of the plague, and the majority of his prophecies are focused on western Europe.  As of this writing there is a major outbreak in Italy.  So given his track record, I would be surprised if the prophecies of Nostradamus did not foresee this one.

So I pulled out a set of prophecies that are yet to be fulfilled, and I found this one, which has an astronomical configuration:

Le parc enclin grande calamit√©
Par l'Hesperie & Insubre fera:
Le feu en nef, peste & captivité:
Mercure en l'Arc Saturn fenera.

The inclined arctic pole great calamity
Through Hesperia and Lombardy:
The fire in the ship, plague and captivity:
Mercury in Sagittarius, Saturn will cut with a scythe.

Nostradamus wrote in code, and likely under trance, and the majority of the prophecies are not clear until they reach their time of fulfillment.  The French phrase parc enclin literally means "inclined park" which makes no sense.  It most likely was meant as an anagram for p. arc., an abbreviation of pole arctique meaning arctic pole which is a phrase Nostradamus used in other quatrains. The reference still does not make much sense, until I realized it most likely refers to one of the solstices, in this case the winter solstice where there is less light to the northern hemisphere causing the season of winter:

The last winter solstice was on Dec. 21, 2019.  On the fourth line there is another clue: Mercury will be in the sign of Sagitarrius.  I just ran a calculation with my astronomy program, and Mercury was in Sagitarrius from December 10 through 29 in 2019, which covers the time of the winter solstice. Next Nostradamus states "Saturn will cut with a scythe."  The astrological symbol of Saturn is the scythe, since in mythology Saturn was the ruler of time and was also associated with agriculture. Cronus-Saturn is an old man which symbolizes the end of the year and the beginning of a new year, which again points us to the end of the year of 2019. In ancient medieval astrology Saturn rules Capricorn and Aquarius, and it just so happens that Saturn moved out of Capricorn into Aquarius on Feb. 26, 2020.

Needless to say this all fits in with the timing of the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. The scythe of Saturn is also associated with the Grim Reaper, the harvesting of souls at the time of death.

The prediction states there will be great calamity in the province of Lombardy in northern Italy, and that is exactly the center of the outbreak of the coronavirus in Italy, where deaths have now surpassed those in China:

The prophecy states that there will be great calamity in "Hesperia and Lombardy."  Hesperia is the mythological reference that Nostradamus uses for the isles of the west beyond the Atlantic, and almost always refers to America.  Which means the United States is next.  According to the article ITALY'S CORONAVIRUS DEATHS SPIKE NEARLY TWO WEEKS INTO LOCKDOWN, AN OMINOUS SIGN FOR NEW YORK AND CALIFORNIA:
"Trajectories show that U.S. cases are emerging on a nearly 11-day delay from those of Italy."
And here we are, with many young college students ignoring all the warnings and not practicing social distancing during Spring Break.

The third line states "Fire in the ship, plague and captivity." In the time of Nostradamus plagues were often brought to other countries by ship, and to stop the plague there used to be the practice of burning sulphur in the ship to disinfect it, or perhaps burning the ship itself. Thus the phrase is symbolic of the need to disinfect infected areas. The plague is the coronavirus, and the captivity is the quarantine we now must all practice diligently.  Cruise ships carrying the coronavirus were quarantined at the time indicated by this prophecy, so it is all very relevant.

And for a sample of another Nostradamus prophecy that was recently fulfilled, see The Nostradamus Prophecy of the Japanese Tsunami and the War in Syria.

So pay attention people, and be safe. It is up to each individual now to be responsible to practice social distancing to ensure our healthcare system is not overwhelmed, and this will allow more lives to be saved.
