Nostradamus predictions for 2017
Terrifying forewarnings of 16th century prophet revealed !
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.
Michel de Nostredame was a 16th century French philosopher who, according to followers, has predicted many historical events including 9/11, the rise of Hitler and Donald Trump’s presidential victory.
After a year full of surprises and political upsets, believers have looked once again to Nostradamus’ writings to try to predict what the new year will bring.
Prophecies and Visions of Nostradamus for 2017
On the world stage, China could make bold moves to cure the “economic imbalance” in the world with far-reaching effects, according to believers. Italy could face financial hardship with rising unemployment and loans making it the “epicentre” of a fresh eurozone crisis. The country looks set to experience economic turmoil and a deepening banking crisis in the wake the Italian referendum result and Matteo Renzi’s decision to resign.
The “current superpower”, believed to be a reference to the US, is expected to become increasingly ungovernable and incompetent in the year that Mr Trump enters office. Another prophecy is said to predict a new sort of truce between Russia and Ukraine, which will be opposed by the US but embraced by the EU.
In Latin America, Governments are forecast to move away from left-wing policies, which will help set the stage for potential civil unrest. The most terrifying of the alleged prophecies is a “Hot War” over global warming and diminishing resources, with the greatest threats said to be biological warfare and terrorism.
In terms of technology, Nostradamus predicted that cloud computing would simply become known as computing, solar power would become more widespread, and commercial space travel would take off with orbital flights around the Earth.
While his words can take on several interpretations, it appears Nostradamus isn’t predicting great things for America either way. And in particular it looks as if President Donald Trump is in for a tough time.
In Century I: 40, Nostradamus writes: “The false trumpet concealing madness will cause Byzantium to change its laws. From Egypt there will go forth a man who wants the edict withdrawn, changing money and standards.”
Some speculate this means Mr Trump (the false trumpet) will go mad and will intervene in Europe’s refugee crisis. If that sounds far-fetched consider that Nostradamus did appear to predict Mr Trump’s victory in this year’s US election.
“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.” Many believe the “shameless, audacious bawler” refers to Mr Trump while the “governor of the army” refers to America’s military force.
Byzantium, an Ancient Greek colony, is linked to Greece, a country which has been hit by an influx of refugees, asylum seekers and immigration problems.
Here are a few of his other predictions for the year ahead.
The US is predicted to become increasingly ungovernable as the year progresses. It is not known how this will yet play out, but Mr Trump has already made it repeatedly clear he will be putting America’s interest first. In its Decade Forecast report private intelligence firm Stratford warned America will become less engaged in the past and will be more cautious concerning economic and military matters.
RUSSIA AND UKRAINE WILL BE AT PEACE
Nostradamus predicts the two rivals will sign a peace agreement. However it remains unclear as to when and how this will take place with other European nations predicted to support the deal.
CHINA WILL RISE UP
The Asian powerhouse is predicted to make bold moves to cure the “economic imbalance“ in the world and its actions will have far reaching consequences. Exactly what this means remains unclear. However just last month, Stratfor predicted China’s economy is living on borrowed time with Beijing facing a series of internal and external threats. In, China’s Economy: Living on Borrowed Time, Stratfor lead analyst John Minnich predicts China’s housing and construction sectors will begin to slow by next year.
GLOBAL WARMING WARS
While not specifically mentioning climate change, Nostradamus predicts the possibilities of “Hot Wars” escalating in 2017. Diminishing resources are also predicted to become an issue.
ITALY IN CRISIS
Italy will also suffer some tough times ahead, with economic turmoil increasing and a deepening banking crisis. Both will plunge the country further into difficulty times, The Express reported.
WHAT DID BABA VANGA PREDICT ?
Nostradamus wasn’t the only one to forecast an interesting year for the United States. Baba Vanga, the blind psychic who predicted 9/11 and the rise of Islamic State, predicted Barack Obama would be the last US president.
The Bulgaria-born Prophet, who died in 1996 aged 85, was known as “Nostradamus from the Balkans” for her apparent 85 per cent success rate. The revered clairvoyant predicted with accuracy that the 44th President would be African-American.
But she also stated that he would be the “last US president”. Mr Obama technically remains president until Donald Trump is sworn in on January 20 2017. This could mean the world will end or the role of president ceases to exist and the US adopts a different political system.
