We will limit ourselves to those figures who are likely alive today, that is, largely those who will be involved in World War III and the years that immediately follow. We will take this speculation as far into the future that is possible. Bear in mind that we cannot know with certainty that any of these prospective candidates are indeed the figures in question. However, I feel they do represent the best discernable choices for prophetic fulfillment based on the current world situation.
Some of these individuals also appear in Biblical prophecy, Islamic prophecy, and Catholic and Old European prophecy. To the degree that they do, they may appear in brief or at length on pages devoted to these other visions of the future. It may also be necessary to discuss some of these other prophecies on these Nostradamus pages.
GAGA AND HER ROLE
Nostradamus, Quatrain 2.45 ~
much the heavens weep for the Androgyne (Hermaphrodite) begotten,
near the heavens human blood is shed:
By great people who died too soon recreated, later and soon the awaited relief comes.
Nostradamus, Quatrain 8.15 ~
efforts towards the North by a man-woman (Hermaphrodite) to vex
Europe and almost all the Universe.
The two eclipses will be put into such a chase, and the Hungarians reinforce life or death.
June 17, 2011 (1:39 AM EDT): This article has been a long time in the making, but certain events had to be allowed to play out before it could be fully written. It will eventually appear on Personalities From Nostradamus Prophecy which hasn't been updated since May 2008. The opening sequence is a modification of my recent post that appears on my Prophetic Messenger Service message board.
There is no question in my mind that Lady Gaga has been groomed by the PTB to take Madonna's place as the Whore of Babylon, to be her successor as it were, in the event of an unforeseen emergency. Thus, all the Illuminati/Masonic symbology ... they spent a lot of time, training, and educating to make her climb to the position she is presently in as fast as they could possibly do it. Clearly they are worried Madonna is getting slack and possibly too old to play the role when the time comes to play it to the hilt. I have no doubt these people always have a backup plan ... they have failed so many times in the past, but they will always keep on trying until they eventually get it right. For them a failed 18-year plan is merely an excuse to work out a new 18-year plan.
Despite all of Madonna's excellent crafting of her "Whore of Babylon" persona over many years, Lady Gaga has nevertheless evoked some very serious comparisons between herself and this figure from Revelations ... and why not? Madonna is not only Lady Gaga's spiritual inspiration but also Madonna and Lady Gaga are actually related by blood:
When Lady Gaga released her song Born This Way in February, the music world cried foul. The pop hit sounded too much like Madonnas Express Yourself, critics protested. But the Material Girl stayed mum on the issue. Thats what you do when youre family.
Lady Gaga and Madonna are related. They are ninth cousins once removed, Child said with a sly grin. He presented a handwritten piece of paper, which traced the relations of Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone and Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta back to a French immigrant farming couple who came to Quebec in the 1600s. Born this way, indeed.
The girl can't help it, in other words. So much so she has:
1) dressed in costumes reminiscent of the "evil Maria" android in the old silent classic Metropolis (who was unquestionably intended to be a "Whore of Babylon" figure);
2) engaged in near-naked crowd-surfing in Ohio, evoking the image of the prostitute the French revolutionary mob carried aloft naked through the streets of Paris in 1793 and placed on a high altar at Notredame cathedral and worshipped for the next 14 months as "The Goddess of Reason" (this was also played out in Metropolis);
A prostitute, Désirée Candéille, was installed as the Goddess of Reason after she paraded naked through the streets of Paris. The goddess, after being embraced by the president, was mounted on a magnificent car, and conducted, amid an immense crowd, to the cathedral Notre Dame, to take the place of Deity. There she was elevated on a high altar, and received the adoration of all present.
(Left) The prostitute Désirée is hoisted up and carried about by French revolutionaries who proclaim her "The Goddess of Reason" ... (Centre) Evil Maria robot, and obvious analogue to the Whore of Babylon, is carried about and hailed a saviour by the new "liberated" hedonistic society in the Fritz Lang film, "Metropolis" ... (Right) Lady Gaga is elevated by the mob of her adoration in Chicago ...
3) played Mary Magdalene (who was a whore) in the video Judas. But by being a Mary in love with both Jesus and Judas, betraying one for the other, she plays the ultimate faithless whore ... skimply dressed in the opening scenes in the royal colours of the Babylonian whore of Revelation 17: alternating between purple and scarlet.
In addition, Lady Gaga presents with a most unusual diagnosis: she may indeed be a reincarnation of Mary Magdalene!
Luke 8:1-2 ~
it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and
village, preaching and shewing the
glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him, and certain women, which had been
healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven demons ...
Lady Gaga has admitted she is guarded, controlled, possessed, and haunted ... thus far, by four spirits: her deceased aunt Joanne, Andy Warhol, her dead friend and fellow singer/songwriter, Lina Morgana, who committed suicide, and a ghost named Ryan (Rien). That is only four, but with ghostbusters to the rescue to rid her home of nameless evil spirits as well, we can say, like Mary Magdalene, she may have within her seven demons ... since she has now gone public with this association between herself and Mary Magdalene on her Judas video ...
I must confess that I have been aware of the Gaga-Magdalene association for some time, and have even cryptically compared Lady Gaga with Mary Magdalene on 2009 (Part One) upon the disclosure of her relationship with Lina Morgana. I had to keep this association rather secretive until the time was right to say what is now being said (as this should be the proper procedure).
Despite Gaga's emulation of Madonna's "Whore of Babylon" image, she still plays the hermaphrodite card ... leaving people wondering if she is a 'he' or a 'she.' This is not a typical characteristic of the "Whore of Babylon" at all.
Also, just as Lady Gaga can be very seductive and sexy as a blonde bimbo type, skimpily dressed, she can also be quite repulsive and horrible. When she plays the various "Mother Monster" parts, she is no longer seductive ... she becomes physically repulsive and deadens all thoughts concerning sex.
Indeed, she has even preached abstinence, refraining from sex herself. This is NOT behaviour that is typical of the "Whore of Babylon."
She has an entirely different role to play, and Nostradamus has a handle on what that is, since you won't find it in the Bible.
I think everyone should know by now why I have applied the quatrains concerning the androgyne and man-woman to Lady Gaga: aside from David Bowie, she is the only other famous androgynous celebrity I can think of ... and most certainly is rising to become one of the greatest stars of all time. Indeed, she is the seventh most powerful woman in the world at this writing. I doubt Nostradamus could have missed seeing her in the dark waters reflecting future events. It matters little now if Gaga denies being a hermaphrodite ... it is an image she toyed with a great deal when she burst on to the music scene. It was our first impression of her, and it was what she intended. It is an image she still plays with from time to time. There is no way she will ever escape this image, unless she turns sex queen entirely and replaces Madonna as the new Whore of Babylon.
By taking on the name Esther and becoming supreme high priestess to the rites of Kabbalah, Madonna declared to the world that she was the embodiment and personification of the Babylonian goddess Ishtar: the original "Whore of Babylon." It was even the working title she considered using for her 2004 tour ... and it was not considered lightly.
So, sticking to the Babylonian pantheon, who is Lady Gaga representing? This is a key to one of the reasons she is here.
Lady Gaga has several possible futures (and perhaps she will realise all of them). One I have discussed several times now (and will again later) concerns "the gates of the North" and releasing of the Giborim.
One far more pressing destiny involves pop icon Madonna. If Madonna is to be the modern incarnation in flesh of the Babylonian goddess Ishtar, and, like the mortal woman Semiramis who claimed to be Ishtar in those times, demands to be worshipped as a goddess, then Lady Gaga must play the role of a hermaphrodite or androgyne called by the name Asu-shu-namir. This is a very powerful role in and of itself ... for Madonna, who lately seems to be dead, needs to be quickened soon, needs to be awakened soon, and Lady Gaga may be the one to do this as the incarnation of Asu-shu-namir.
In the account of goddess Ishtar's journey to the underworld, we learn about the magic that began to be used in the time of Osiris and Isis. Ishtar's famous descent into the underworld to retrieve Ba'al Marduk also tells of how she can raise the dead to consume the living. On approaching the gateway to the underworld, she demands the gates be opened for her or else.
thou openest not the gate to let me enter,
I will break the door, I will wrench the lock,
I will smash the doorpost, I will force the doors.
I will bring up the dead to eat the living.
And the dead shall outnumber the living.
The gatekeeper hurriedly informs Ereshkigal "the queen of the underworld" of this demand, and she instructs him to allow Ishtar to enter according to the ancient decree. After passing through each of the seven gates into the underworld, Ishtar must remove one article of clothing to continue through, when finally she passes the seventh gate, she is completely naked. In rage, Ishtar lunges herself at Ereshkigal, but Ereshkigal orders Namtar her servant to imprison Ishtar and unleash sixty diseases against her.
As long as Ishtar remains imprisoned in the underworld, all sexual activity and procreation ceases. On hearing of Ishtar's capture Papsukal (the messenger God) relays the situation to Ea (the king of the Gods) who then creates the androgyne (hermaphrodite) called Asu-shu-namir and sends him/her to find Ereshkigal. Asu-shu-nimar warns Ereshkigal, that he/she has the power to invoke "the name of the great Gods" against her, and asks for the bag containing the waters of life. Reluctantly she submits this to Asu-shu-nimar who sprinkles Ishtar with the waters of life, reviving her to her former self.
Ishtar then exits the underworld in the same fashion as entering, this time receiving each of the items of clothing as she passes each of the seven gates, unil once again she emerges back into the sunlight fully clothed.
In a similar way, Lady Gaga is to revive or bring back to life the "Whore of Babylon" (Madonna) who will either die or else be "imprisoned" ... not by any actual "Queen of the Underworld" or "Queen of Hell" but by her own indecisiveness. Madonna is paralysed from accomplishing her destiny, in mourning still by the sudden deaths of Michael Jackson and Caresse Henry. During this time of bondage and mourning, all sexual activity and procreation will cease on Earth. Note that, although this is certainly not happening all over the planet, Lady Gaga IS appealing to her younger fans to refrain from sex until they are wise enough to decide for themselves what is right for them. In general she is telling everyone to pause and consider. This SYMBOLISES the cessation of sexual activity and procreation on earth that occurred when Ishtar was imprisoned in the underworld.
Nostradamus, Quatrain 2.44 ~
Eagle driven whole from houses, surrounded by other birds to be
hunted: When the noise
of bells, cymbals, and trumpets will restore the sense to the senseless lady.
In Bible lore, Yahweh calls Ba'al the "hunter of souls" and compares the souls to "birds."
Ezekiel 13:20 ~
thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against your magic bands
with which you hunt the souls,
and I will tear them from your arms; and I will let the souls that you hunt go free like birds.
By YHWH's own admission in Ezekiel 13:20, these magic bands do not belong to him, but are indeed owned and are the possession of the hunter of souls: Ba'al.
Called the Kesatot, these magic bands were housed in a container called the Kiste, this symbol was inscribed on sarcophagi and on the Maenad/Bacchae women who worshipped Artemis/Diana or her male counterpart, Dionysus (the Mystery God). The Kiste was represented by a sacred vase or vessel with snakes emerging out from an open lid. These snakes (Kesatot) represented the binding or loosening of a soul to the magic bands, and the Kiste a means to return from the dead. Pan (who is often associated with Dionysus) was also depicted in imagery of the Kesatot by kicking off the lid and allowing the snakes to escape, thus opening a means to allow the freeing of souls.
In Ezekiel, God has compared "souls" with "birds." This is also Nostradamus' meaning in the above quatrain: Ba'al will leave his twelve houses and "the underworld" and hunt the souls of humanity in order to set them free from bondage and death by using his magic bands. These magic bands are the original technology that was and is used by Ba'al and his Nephilim. The magic bands profile individual DNA and the soul of the user and, if the match is correct, will bond with that person. The bands will empower all correctly matched individuals with ETERNAL LIFE. It is far more advanced than the technology used by mankind today or, for that matter, the technology given to humans by the greys (the "sons of God"). Nephilim technology is Ba'al technology and vastly superior to anything one can dare imagine ...
The second half of Quatrain 2.44 deals with Lady Gaga performing a ritual publicly or privately, accompanied by the required playing of bells, cymbals, and horns, to invoke "the name of the great Gods." As you will find out again by re-reading our new page THE RELIGION OF BA'AL AND THE WORSHIP OF ISHI, the name of the great Gods will be Ba'al in his present form, as the god named by Yahweh as Ishi. From Ba'al Ishi, Gaga will receive "the waters of life" with which to awaken Madonna. Nostradamus tells us that "the sense will be restored to the senseless woman." Madonna will be "restored to life" with Ba'al at her side. Ba'al Ishi will then rule and Madonna will become the renewed goddess Ishtar, the Whore of Babylon.
However, there is something Madonna must yet do for her to achieve her ultimate objective. Only then shall she take her place sitting upon the beast with seven heads and ten horns, drinking from the bloody chalice of fornication and murder ... and occupying a higher seat as consort to the one she has long awaited.
A powerful demonstration of diplomacy will be required, for it too will aid her in achieving her higher purpose. In previous visits to Israel, Madonna has met with the likes of President Shimon Peres.
Surely she knows the construction of an important temple in Jerusalem awaits its building, calling out from both past and future? The irresistable architecture can be begun so easily with a word and so many zeros. It is the universality of Madonna's spiritual messages that are now on the line if they do not take flesh in mortar, marble, and many prescious materials. As below, so above, it must appear to back Madonna.
THE RETURN OF THE NEPHILIM
All the Heavens will weep when the Androgyne appears because a terrible global war will begin not long afterwards and, just as important, a great war in Heaven itself. When this war comes, a herculean effort will be underway to recreate a "great people" to their previous glory.
Nostradamus, Quatrain 2.45 ~
much the heavens weep for the Androgyne (Hermaphrodite) begotten,
near the heavens human blood is shed:
By great people who died too soon recreated, later and soon the awaited relief comes.
These "great people" who died too soon, some of whom are even called "the dead" (Rephaim) and who were giants once worshipped as gods, are none other than the Nephilim. Banished from our world by YHWH, their last descendants supposedly imprisoned behind two great iron or bronze "gates" in the Caucasus by Alexander the Great with the help of YHWH, these beings can return via one of several inter-dimensional or time/space portals (also called "stargates"). One of these is reportedly located in the Gulf of Aden, where the naval ships of many nations have been congregating over the last few years (allegedly due to piracy in the region by Somalia). However, it is through a portal or portals located in "the North" (the "gates of the North" of Alexander) that several prophets have warned the Nephilim will return. It is possible the world briefly saw this portal as a spiralling blue light over Norway in December 2009. More recently, in May 2011, the Nephilim were witnessed peering into our world over Russia:
In a dual-universe, the glass is neither half full nor half empty: it is both simultaneously. The Dual Universe principal is explained in detail in our article, The Dual Universe and Pearls of String Theory. Thus, the above image, even seen "moving" on video, could easily be: 1) a projectile or ship of some sort, moving outwards and upwards towards space, dragging what some have called a kind of "northern lights" effect behind it, or 2) a slit or visor-like opening, peering into our world, moving backwards into space, pulling with it a rift or perturbation in time and space.
Oh yes, they are near ... and they are waiting ... and watching!
The Nephilim will return either as benevolent beings or else as flesh-eating monsters. It all depends, oddly enough, on whether the Whore of Babylon is awakened and turns to Ba'al Ishi as her consort. It matters very little, either way, to the tiny androgyne Lady Gaga. At the appropriate time, according to Nostradamus, she shall say the magic words and open the portal in the North, allowing the Nephilim to pass through. At the time this occurs, the world will be in a terrible state of anxiety over various events, war-related and space-related:
Nostradamus, Quatrain 8.15 ~
efforts towards the North by a man-woman (Hermaphrodite) to vex
Europe and almost all the Universe.
The two eclipses will be put into such a chase, and the Hungarians reinforce life or death.
Nostradamus, Quatrain 8.85 ~
Bayonne and St. Jean de Luz, the promontory of War will be placed.
Towards the North
the Unconquerable Whore removes the light, suffocation in bed without hope of assistance.
So, when a great war comes to Hungary and southern France, and space-related or devastating natural events cause both the Moon and the Sun to dim as they do during eclipses (blood red moon, blackened sun), a hermaphrodite who also projects herself as a "Whore of Babylon" type ... Lady Gaga ... with "great efforts" will open the "Gates of the North."
Nostradamus informs us in Quatrain 2.68 that the portal, like the one in the Gulf of Aden, will be found in Arctic oceanic waters. At that time, London will tremble with great anxiety due to the war. Again, the androgyne's "efforts" in the North will be "great." For dramatic emphasis, the Das Abra translation will be performed by the actor Vernon Dobtcheff:
The result? It all depends ...
Liber Vaticinationem Quodam instinctumentis, Norma 64:9 ~
gods of the ancients will return to the streets and the taverns
of the Empire. The trees will shrivel in the hot wind and the
Florence will become dry. In the land beyond the Pillars of Hercules there will rise the ghost of an horned image,
and the prophet will return to the table whilst the waters retreat from the aqueducts.
Hopi Indian prophecy ~
War III will be started by those peoples who first revealed the
light in the other old countries. The United States will be
land and people, by atomic bombs and radioactivity. ... The war will be a spiritual conflict with material matters. Material matters
will be destroyed by spiritual beings who will remain to create one world and one nation under one power, that of the Creator.
The "old gods" or, here, "gods of the ancients," are none other than the Nephilim, the angels of Ba'al. They will return in a role favourable to mankind during a time of great war and drought. This will not immediately bring to an end earth changes that must continue to happen, nor the damages caused by global warfare, but humanity will be steered through the troubled waters of War and Nature during this time of universal peace. The horned image in either a resurrected Atlantis or else the United States of America will be a statue of Ba'al himself. It may well be the United States since the Hopi, elsewhere in other prophecy, have said America can avoid the nuclear destruction fate through spiritual mediation. The table the prophet returns to is the table whereby peace is maintained, where all sit equally, as in the days of King Arthur.
The Nephilim will bring with them the "magic bands" technology that will empower mankind with freedom unparalleled, the ability to travel with ease through time and space, to end disease and aging, and yes, bring to all eternal life.
Unfortunately, there is a dark, horrific alternative to what may happen when the Nephilim emerge. Sadly, this has been the focus of several prophecies, which must be considered:
Norse prophecy of Ragnarök ~
forces of chaos will outnumber and overcome the divine and human
guardians of order. Loki and his
monstrous children will burst their bonds; the dead will sail from Niflheim to attack the living."
If the dreaded Giborim, the cannibalistic giants sprung from the ancient Nephilim, are unleashed as prophesied, escaping into our world via a northern portal, a "living dead" form of the Nephilim (also known as the Rephaim) shall also be freed from their magic bands in the underworld and arise to aid in the destruction of the living.
These creatures were imprisoned in another dimension that can only be accessible by the ancient technology used by the Nephilim. Although CERN's Large Hadron Collider is not a part of this technology, I believe it accidentally opened a portal into this dimension in 2009: the blue spiral light over Norway. Remember, Norway is only across the North Sea from where CERN's Large Hadron Particle Collider operates. Also, do not forget that the Norwegians are themselves experimenting with an "alien technology" that was not created by humans.
Will Lady Gaga somehow gain access to such technology and use it for the most horrific of reasons? Needless to say, none of this may matter, as it now appears "something" has been peering into our dimension in Russia and also in China ... the same "something" that has triggered off bizarre and powerful explosions in earthquake-ravaged Japan and in the flood-stricken and tornado-devastated United States, producing intense flashes of blue, purple, green, and red light.
Therefore, attend this next ancient prophecy well, for it speaks about "the gates of the North" (both Norway and Russia, along with Sweden and Finland, are best associated with the North), and what may come though the northern portal:
Saint Methodius (4th century) ~
"Gates of the North" will be opened and the strength of
those peoples which Alexander shut up there will go forth.
The whole earth will be terrified at the sight of them; men will be afraid and flee in terror to hide themselves in
mountains and caves and graves. They will die of fright and very many will be wasted with fear.
There will be no one to bury the bodies.
tribes which will go forth from the North will eat the flesh of
men and will drink the blood of beasts like water.
They will eat unclean serpents, scorpions, and every kind of filthy and abominable beast and reptile which
crawls upon the earth. They will consume the dead bodies of beasts of burden and even womens
abortions. They will slay the young and take them from their mothers and eat them. They will
corrupt the earth and contaminate it. No one will be able to stand against them.
The result will be horrific. The androgyne will likely perish in the act of unleashing the Giborim and the Rephaim upon the human race. Then many people will die of fright and many more will be consumed in the most horrid fashion imaginable:
Again, this event, according to Quatrains 8.15 and 8.85, appears to occur at the height of World War III and possibly at the same time Planet X is drawing close to Earth. The sun and moon will lose their light and the Earth will be plunged into darkness for three days. This leads us to what may be related prophecies concerning the Giborim and Rephaim:
Anna-Maria Taigi (19th Century) ~
shall come over the whole earth an intense darkness lasting three
days and three nights. Nothing can be seen, and the air will be
with pestilence which will claim mainly, but not only, the enemies of religion ... He, who out of curiosity, opens his window to look out, or
leaves his home, will fall dead on the spot. During these three days, people should remain in their homes, pray the Rosary and
beg God for mercy. All the enemies of the Church, whether known or unknown, will perish over the whole earth during
that universal darkness ... The air shall be infected by demons who will appear under all sorts of hideous forms.
Elisabeth Canori-Mora ~
legions of demons shall overrun the earth, and shall execute the
orders of Divine justice by causing terrible calamities
and disasters: they shall attack everything: they shall injure individual persons and entire families: they shall devastate
property and alimentary productions, cities and villages.
THE MANY DEATHS OF LADY GAGA OR MADONNA
Of course, hopefully no one will die. There is nothing absolutely certain in Nostredame's predictions, anyway.
There are number of females in Nostradamus who come to horrific ends. Some are represented as famous harlots, adulteresses, or high priestesses of religious cults that are anti-Christian in nature. Unless each quatrain is an alternative future for the Androgyne or the Whore of Babylon, some may apply to figures not yet on the scene. For example, in Quatrain 8.85 above it is unclear as to whether the "Unconquerable Whore" is suffocated in bed after completing her "mission" in the North or if the outcome of "removing the light" (whatever that means) is widespread suffocation of humans worldwide. The latter may be what is intended since the 12th Century prophet Johann Friede wrote that during the high point of this particular apocalypse, which may correspond to the three days of darkness, much of humanity will fall into a slumber and die.
Then again, I must
warn: if Madonna fails to be awakened to attend to her role as
the Whore of Babylon, Lady Gaga will be forced to unleash the
Giborim. In Quatrain 1.39 a supreme one, who is a blonde elevated
to highest stature, is strangled in her bed. This could be
Madonna or Lady Gaga, but is most probably Madonna. "Suffocated
in bed" and "strangled in bed" are pretty much the
Quatrain 8.85 ~
... The Unconquerable Whore removes the light, suffocation in bed without hope of assistance.
The following quatrain suggests either Lady Gaga or Madonna may die during a missile attack on London at a time when the "Cardinal of France," André Armand Vingt-Trois, is elected as Pope Nicolas VI (or Nicholas VI):
Nostradamus, Quatrain 2.51 ~
blood of the just at London shall be at fault, burnt by
thunderbolts of Vingt-Trois the Six,
The antic lady (mad lady) shall fall from high place, of the same cult many shall be killed.
The very word, Gaga, means crazy or mad ... indeed, Lady Gaga claims she is insane ... thus she could easily be the "antic dame," the mad lady of this Notredame prophesy even moreso than Madonna, whose madness is but a trivial play on words (Mad Donna). However, the status of the woman in the above quatrain would still strongly indicate Madonna, the Whore of Babylon. Again, this appears to be the height of World War III after a Russian war in Hungary reaches southern France, courtesy of its Mideast ally Iran. At this time, not only will London be bombarded by missiles, but the Sabinois pope, "Pol Mensolee," will be killed at Avignon. This will require the election by a Vatican in exile of a new pope: the one called "the great Pontiff of France."
We can clearly see Cardinal Vingt-Trois's name in the above quatrain, and that he will take the name of "the six." Nostradamus tells us in Quatrain 9.59, that the name of this pope will be Nicolas. Since there have been five popes by the name of Nicholas thus far, the next one will have to be called Nicholas VI (the Sixth).Those who launch missiles at London will be the same as those who launch missiles at Avignon, causing the death of Pope Paul VII (or Pope John Paul III) and the election of Pope Nicholas VI. "Thunderbolts" will literally herald the election of Vingt-Trois as pope.
If a French cardinal is elected pope, it means the NWO script for Armageddon has been abandoned. It means God's movement of mankind towards a final apocalypse in Revelation has been postponed, and that humanity will go on running the show on Planet Earth for another 200 years plus. It will mean that the woman playing the Whore of Babylon at this time, Madonna, will become expendable. So too will Lady Gaga. Madonna has a cult, Kabbalah, and she maintains ties with London. So it is likely she who will fall from high place. The manner of her death is not mentioned, nor those of her cult who also perish, although one would suspect a fiery demise ... for London, in this case, functions as an archetype for "that great city Babylon" that is utterly destroyed by fire in Revelation 18. Within 25 months, World War III will end and Chyren, "the great Monarch of France," will begin a new universal peace with the aid of "the great Pontiff of France." As the Hopi Indians have been urging, humanity will leave behind the "jagged path" and return to the "lower path."
There are several other Nostradamus quatrains I would like to discuss, but time no longer permits. This article will therefore likely be updated in the very near future. But for now, this is the ending.
chief of the world the great Chyren shall be,
Plus outré Carol Quint was the motto of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V.
"Grecia" is the prophetic name for the European Union or a future European empire. It may also be a dependency of the European empire, i.e., the Balkans.
This king is named by the prophet variously as Chyren, Chiren, Chyren Selin, and Selin monarque. Most commentators believe Chyren to be an anagram of Henryc: the Old French spelling of Henry.
The name Henry would have held much symbolic significance to Nostradamus: Henry I was the grandson of Hugh Capet, the founder of the extensive Capetian dynasty and the French monarchy itself (Capet appears symbolically throughout Les Propheties as well). Henry II, of course, was the husband of Nostradamus' most powerful of patrons: Catherine de' Medicis. It was he who the seer predicted would die in a jousting tournament in 1599, his eye and brain pierced by a shattered lance. It remains to be seen whether Chyren does presage a fifth French king named Henry, the long awaited Henry V or Henry Cinq, or is simply a metaphorical name for a French leader of great fame.
I should point out that the modern French spelling of Chyren should be "Chiren" (a "y" would become an "i" in this case), and Nostradamus also spells it that wayevery letter capitalisedin Quatrain 2.79. It is my belief that this is the spelling the prophet actually intended for our generation to understand, which is the reason why he spotlighted it in The Centuries in such a conspicuous fashion. Therefore, it is the form I use throughout both my website and my book, Nostradamus and the Final Age.
I believe it is entirely possible that, in addition to the medieval variation Henric, Chiren is also an anagram or approximation of an actual surname, a Nostradamian pun.
On May 7, 1995, the Mayor of Paris, Jacques Chirac, was elected to succeed Francois Mitterand as President of France. The conservative Chirac enjoyed a sweeping victory over the socialite candidate Lionel Jospin. He repeated his landslide victory again, this time over extreme-right leader Jean-Marie Le Pen, on May 5, 2002. Today he is the most influential and charismatic leader in the European Union. It is quite likely that Chiren is an anagram or approximation of Chirac. As long ago as the spring of 1992 I was predicting in early drafts of my book, Nostradamus and the Final Age, Jacques Chirac's victories in France's 1995 and 2002 presidential elections purely on the basis of the similarity between "Chiren" and "Chirac."
According to Nostradamus, Chiren will restore the French monarchy a short time before he is made emperor of Europe. According to Daniel "the great horn" will be "the first king" of the West and "will wax mighty."
Will the French office of president eventually give way to a full-blown monarchy? Only time will tell. Perhaps to Nostradamus and the Bible prophet Daniel, a president who rules all or the better part of 17 years (1995 - 2012) might seem like a "king." Then again, by May 2007, the end of Chiracs second term, international developments (building shadows of a third world war in Europe) may well lead to a popular movement in France to restore the monarchy and Mr. Chirac could be crowned as king by public acclaim.
Whichever is the case, there can be no misunderstanding when Nostradamus says that Chiren shall become an "emperor." However, if Nostradamus is correct, it will take a third world war and Chirac's victory over an Iranian adversary to cause the French leader to be made "emperor" by almost unanimous acclaim (some nations like Switzerland will not agree with the idea).
What do we know of President Jacques Chirac? Does he exhibit the sort of qualities one might expect to find in a future Charlemagne? Does anything about his personal profile match that of Nostradamus, Herculean figure, Chiren Selin?
Jacques Chirac has threatened to NUKE rogue states if
they attack France.
"Nuclear deterrence is not aimed at dissuading fanatic terrorists. Leaders of any state that uses terrorist means against us, as well as any that may be envisaging -- in one way or another -- using weapons of mass destruction, must understand that they would be exposing themselves to a firm and appropriate response on our behalf. That response could be conventional, it could also be of another nature.
In numerous countries, radical ideas are spreading, advocating a confrontation of civilizations. Odious attacks could escalate to other yet more serious forms involving states. We have configured our nuclear arsenal to be able to respond flexibly and reactively to any threat. Faced with a regional power, our choice is not between doing nothing and annihilating it. The flexibility and reactiveness of our strategic forces allow us to respond directly on the centers of power. There should be no doubt about our will and capacity to use nuclear arms."
|"Today I call on the Iranian
authorities to choose the path of cooperation and
confidence by carefully examining this offer and resuming
their commitment to suspend activities related to the
production of fissile materials. There is room for
dialogue and negotiation. We call on Iran's spirit of
responsibility to restore cooperation and confidence,
failing which the Security Council will have no other
choice but to take up the issue.
Everyone recognizes that Iran, or North Korea, for example, have a right to peacefully use nuclear energy. But it is imperative for the international community to ensure that the commitments reached for everyone's security are respected. It is a grave mistake that Iran doesn't take the hand it is offered. Time is quickly running out."
|"Unfortunately, a group of
bullies allows itself to deprive nations of their legal
and natural rights. The Iranian nation is not frightened
by the powers and their noise. If they cause any
disturbance, they will ultimately regret it. Even if they
destroy our scientists, their successors would continue
the job. It would not be easy for them to solve the
nuclear case by imposing sanctions or anything like that.
I tell those superpowers that, with strength and prudence, Iran will pave the way to achieving peaceful nuclear energy. In the near future, nuclear energy will be completely carried out by the Iranian nation. They falsely say that they oppose nuclear weapons. They want to have nuclear monopoly to sell it drop by drop at an expensive price and use it as an instrument for domination over nations."
Well, it is clear Mr Chirac does exhibit "the right stuff" in his public statements, but what of the physical and other requirements?

GRAND PROPHECY ON THE ROAD TO FULFILLMENT
We can now see that the great Chiren, Jacques Chirac, and the black-bearded Persian conqueror, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, are gradually becoming enemies. However, the time of their war is not yet at hand. Even so, we are nearing the appointed time ... and will watch with open eyes when the King of Persia declares war on the European Union as prophesied by both Daniel and Nostradamus.
Already the argument has begun between France and Iran, the European Union and Iran, the he-goat and the ram, East and West, Christendom and Islam, Chirac and Ahmadinejad, Chiren and Perse ... the great crisis of 2006 that can only end in one way: with the prophesied beginning of the biblical "end times" as outlined in Daniel 8 through 12 and in the Book of Revelation ... the painful dawn of the final age of human history!
The Warnings of Nostradamus
As the United States inches closer to launching a massive war effort against Iran, government officials and military planners have been given yet another reason to begin the air strikes soon: the election of Iranian hardliner Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Ahmadinejad has vowed to return Iran to the days of the 1979 Revolution and create a super Islamic nuclear state ready to war with Israel, the United States, and their allies throughout the Middle East and Europe. Already, he is butting heads with the entire Western world by declaring that Iran is now a nuclear state ready to defend itself against any nation and threatening the destruction of Israel and the United States. Meantime, Iran's nuclear programme continues to move forward with utmost rapid speed, unchecked by international inspections.
It would appear that this new black-bearded tyrant is destined to fulfill Nostradamus' prophecies concerning "The chief of Persia": a great warmongering Iranian leader who will lead Iran and its Islamic allies, nation states and terrorist groups alike, against all the nations of The West.
The frizzled, black beard through
This quatrain describes a new, dreadful leader of the Iranians (gent cruelle & fiere). He will have a frizzled, black beard. The second half of this stanza anticipates his eventual defeat by a French leader named Chiren, a name, as I have already discussed, that I believe to be an anagram or approximation of ChiracPresident Jacques Chirac of France. The presidency of the European Union is currently under rotation, and will be next led by France between June and December 2008. At that time, or perhaps a bit later, Chirac may become the permanent leader of the EU or an European empire that will emerge from the ashes of World War III. As its leader, Chirac will then fulfill the prophecies of Daniel and Nostradamus concerning a great king of the West who will do battle with Persia and Media, bringing about their utter defeat.
What shall be a sign that their war is underway?
clue lies in the other name of Chiren: "Selin,"
which is translated
as "Selene": Selena, goddess of the moon.
the two distant monarchs,
When the Sun and Moon have lost their light:
Great hatred between two indignant ones,
That those of the Islands and Sienna
should have liberty restored.
moon obscured in great gloom,
Her brother becomes the colour of blood:
The great one long hidden under shadows,
Shall wield his iron in the bloody rain.
The great World War III will come after terrible natural catastrophes and after the current war has evolved into something so horrid that, together, the effects of War and Nature will cause the moon and sun to become obscured by dust. As the Book of Revelation predicts more accurately, when "the sun becomes black as sackcloth of hair and the moon the colour of blood."
When the moon becomes the colour of blood ... not merely during a lunar eclipse, but all the time.
This is linked with the opening of the sixth seal: the universal earthquake that causes men to flee in dread from the sight of the heavens rolling up before the face of God's wrath and to hide in caves deep within the earth.
This is yet another proof that the worst of World War III will take place when Planet X, Nibiru, Marduk, Wormwood, Sedna, Xena -- call it what you like -- passes near our earth.
How much time do we have? Here may be the answer ...
The Great War: 2006 - 2010?
Abbot Werdin d'Otrante (13th cent.) --
nations will be in wars for four years and a great part of the
world will be destroyed.
All the sects will vanish. The capital of the world will fall. The Pope will go over the sea
carrying the sign of redemption on his forehead, and after the victory of the Pope and
the Great Monarch peace will reign on earth."
And what of America?
I still believe that before Iran and its ally Russia declare war against the European Union, the United States will launch air strikes against suspected Iranian nuclear targets. America may likely have the support of the EU and may even be accompanied by some Nato nations in this endeavour. However, this action will deteriorate into an even larger quagmire than Iraq currently is, engulfing not only Iraq, but the entire Persian Gulf, on land and sea, and the oil fields of Saudi Arabia.
This war will last until 2008 or 2009 before America is finally overwhelmed by natural catastrophes at home and its involvement in other foreign conflicts, and then defeated in Iraq after aiding Israel in the fiery destruction of Damascus and other Syrian cities, and forced to withdraw from Iraq and Saudi Arabia by Iranian and Russian forces.
Iraq and Iran shall then become one nation under Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and Israel and all the Arab nations that dared side with her and the US shall he smite in anger. For this war the EU will send forces to defend Egypt, Turkey, Jordan, and Israel, but shall be overwhelmed by greater Iran and its allies, including Russia, which will block and damage their navies in the Eastern Mediterranean.
Then follows the declaration of war by Ahmadinejad, dictator of greater Persia, against the European Union for supporting America and Israel. And in this most horrible conflict of conflicts, Iran shall have the aid of numerous Muslim allies in North Africa, Transcaucasia, South and Central Asia, and Indonesia, as well as Russia, who will have her own reasons to war with the European Union.
Yet, when all of Europe asks "where is America?," America will make one final, heroic stand. Under a female president, the USA will launch air strikes and engage ground troops with Russian forces in Hungary, Ukraine, and the former Yugoslavia, then launch limited nuclear strikes against Russian forces in Germany and Scandinavia, and against Islamic forces in the south of Europe, and the EU-3 shall drive away the Russians and their tanks with a deadly yellow dust. Then both America and Russia shall be largely destroyed in a total nuclear exchange as Iran's war in Europe continues on ...
However, if Israel launches air strikes against Iran instead of the USA, everything happening above shall be accelerated, and the dreadful confrontation between East and West will start all the sooner.
This destruction of "the two" (Russia and the USA) explains why the European Union prevails. The two greatest powers in the world will be forced to go to war, yet, according to Nostradamus, "the victor will be born on French soil."
The Continued Enigma of Selin
The enigma of Selin does not simply end with the moon in perpetual eclipse. It's use seems related to other events that will occur during World War III and also during the period of armistice that shall follow the war during the reign of Chiren. The significance of the moon or lunar crescent is manifold:
· As a device, emblem, standard, coat-of-arms, etc. (Henry II adopted the moon as his device. In heraldry, the crescent moon is the symbol for the second son.)
· As the symbol of Islam. The crescent moon also appears on the flags of a number of Moslem nations, including Turkey, Algeria, and Pakistan. Chiren may originally befriend the Islamic world (as Chirac has done in the recent past). But in the end, according to Nostradamus, he will be forced to defeat the armies of Mohammad.
· As a surname. (Some New Age commentators have attempted to link '"selin" with the Reverend Sun Myung Moon. However, how does this link up with Chiren who is portrayed by the prophet as a native of France? Also, despite the linkage of '"selin"" with "moon," the closest anyone might be able to come to making either "chiren" or "chyren" function as a word meaning "sun" is the Greek word chrysos which means "gold"a rather lukewarm approximation at best.)
· As a nickname. For example, French President Jacques Chirac was nicknamed "Hiro-Chirac" (a play on the name of the late Japanese emperor Hirohito and the city of Hiroshimathe first city in history to be destroyed by a nuclear weapon) by opponents of his 1995-96 nuclear tests in the Pacific Islands. Caricatures of Chirac superimposed over the symbol of the atom or a mushroom cloud appeared on protest posters. Perhaps one day Chiren will befriend the Islamic nations.
· Already discussed above: As a contemporaneous event, especially one of monumental significance. According to Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky (1950), Romulus, the first king and founder of Rome, was identified with the planet Mars after a close encounter between Earth and the red planet caused worldwide destruction. According to Nostradamus, Chiren's star will rise when the moon becomes the color of blood.
· As a symbol associated with the economy of Chiren's government. The design for the currency of the European Union, the "euro," is a large, capital "C" with two horizontal bars running through it. The "C" resembles a crescent moon.
· Finally, as Holy Roman Emperor and chief ally of the coming "Pope from ancient France," Chiren may encourage the worship of the late Princess Diana as a saint. Diana, after all, did die in Paris ... the same city where Marie Antoinette was executed 203 years and 10 months (7 x 29 years) earlier.
There are several quatrains written by Nostradamus that indicate the worship of Diana will become a major religion existing side by side or within the framework of a new Christianity. In the ancient world, Diana was worshipped as the goddess of the moon (in Greek her name was Selene or Artemis). In the new millennium, those who worship the saint, angel, or goddess the world once knew as Diana, Princess of Wales, will also associate her with the moon.
The Church of Diana already exists, but its members are few ... for the time being. However, the events to come will change all of that dramatically. The French seer called this new religion "the Temple of Artemis" (Artemis was the Greek version of the goddess Diana) and "the Temple of the Vestals."
After the Third World War has been waged, a great Christian monarch from France shall reign as an emperor over many countries. In most prophecy he is simply called "the Great Monarch," but Nostradamus names him "Chyren" and "Chiren" in his quatrains.
Often Nostradamus adds the name "selin" after Chyren (Chyren selin) and sometimes even uses it alone. It is derived from Selena (Selene), another Roman goddess associated with the moon.
Henry II of Valois, the French king whose agonising death from wounds to the eye and brain from a jousting accident was prophesied by Nostradamus, used the crescent moon as his device in honour of his mistress, Diane de Poitiers. Diane de Poitiers, because of her first name, was fixated with the ancient goddess of the moon, Diana, and the pagan rituals associated with the, what was by that time, dead religion.
Not only did Henry II honour his "moon mistress" with his moon emblem, but he also built small temples, shrines, gardens, and gazebos which he dedicated to Diane (Diana).
The future emperor Chiren will also use the moon as his device. Whether this is Chirac or a future Henry, he is a spiritual Henry, whereas Henry II was a carnal Henry. During the spiritual Henry's reign, Pope John Paul II's dream of the Anglican Communion marrying with the Catholic Church shall be realised. But apparently that is not all that will be allowed. Nostradamus makes it clear that the lunar influence will be strong enough to identify it with the emperor's name.
SELIN monarque, Chyren Selin, the Christian king of the world, will allow the worship of the new moon goddess, Princess Diana, to flourish during his reign. Christianity and Diana worship will coexist side by side as they did during the first century AD before the Church fathers forebade certain Christian sects from also worshipping the moon goddess. The need for a divine feminine was instead replaced with the beatification of the Virgin Mary.
In our time, the need for a divine feminine has been fulfilled by the sacrifice of Princess Diana.
In the Christian church people shall say "Amen" and worship the sun ("Amen" is derived from Aman Ra, the Egyptian sun god, later replaced by Aten by Pharoah Akhnaten). On the next street, it will be the moon who shall shine in all her glory.
Thus, Sun and Moon will guide the world back to sanity and peace. There will be no land not illuminated by one or the other.
Christianity flourishes in the Netherlands and France. In one of Nostradamus ' more dazzling displays of visual imagery, Chiren's Holy Empire reaches its zenith. At the time of the emperor's lavish funeral, however, northwestern Switzerland will seek to withdraw from the empire. The cock was a nineteenth-century symbol for France.
I have determined, partly through my base 7 system of numerology, that the death of Chiren will occur in May 2016. Also, since so much significance has been accorded the year 2012 by various prophets old and new, this may be the actual year the French "president" of Europe is elevated to a Carolmingian style emperor.
According to Daniel, the future empire ("he goat") will "wax very great" (become very powerful and expansive). Likewise, as Nostradamus tells us, when the empire has reached its greatest hour, the emperor ("the great horn") will die.
In Quatrain 6.71, when last rites are administered to the dying emperor, a secret arrangement will be made between him and Great Britain ("the Lions"); a new merger between what remains of the United States, Canada, and Mexico (all symbolized by the American eagle); and the Pope ("the cross") concerning the future disposition of the Holy Empire.
The "crown sold" is the imperial crown. But who is the "last" (or "he who is youngest") who will come to visit the king on his deathbed?
None other than his appointed successor! A leader whom Nostradamus calls Ogmios.
In recent months, the French media has written the obituary of Chirac's administration, erroneously believing that he will not seek a third term. That myth was smashed in mid-November 2006 when both President Chirac and his wife, Bernadette, revealed that he now feels energised and may seek a third term, especially because of the dangerous world events now occurring and the threat they could pose to both France and the European Union. The popular candidate, Segolene Royal, is the favourite to win if Chirac does not run.
But what if Ms Royal should win the election? Would that end all chances of Mr Chirac fulfilling the figure of Chiren selin in Nostradamus prophecy? Not necessarily. Royal and Chirac will face many hurdles, whoever is president, but Nostradamus suggests that Royal will not survive her ordeals whilst Chirac will return to lead, either after the Royal administration fails or, if Chirac is the one serving a third term, a temporary absence:
November 19, 2006 (9:01 PM EST): As presidential elections in France grow near in May 2007, soon we shall test the theory that Jacques Chirac is indeed the "great Monarch" that roughly 80% of European and Catholic prophecies indicate will be French, and whether he is the one named "Chiren" in anagram by Nostradamus in many of his quatrains. Or will we?
On Friday, Segolene Royal won the overwhelming backing of France's Socialists in her bid to become France's first female president, suggesting the party is now ready to put aside internal divisions in its bid to recapture power. Nevertheless, as Ms Royal takes the lead as the candidate to face off with Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy in 2007, it has also been reported that Jacques Chirac will likely run yet again for a third term:
Chirac set to break up 'Sego-Sarko' fight with plan to stand a third time
By Kim Willsher in Paris, Sunday Telegraph
Last Updated: 1:16am GMT 19/11/2006
President Jacques Chirac is in "great shape" and ready to run for a third term to prevent his would-be successor, Nicolas Sarkozy, from replacing him at the Elysée Palace. Mr Chirac, 73, will decide within weeks whether to stand, but friends and family say that even after 12 years and despite his age and health, he is keen to stay on.
The revelation is a further sign of the difficulty the Right faces in agreeing a figure to contest the May election, just as the Socialist party has overwhelmingly backed Ségolène Royal as its candidate. The 53-year-old mother of four saw off her two Left-of-centre rivals in a primary last Thursday and immediately promised: "Politics must change."
Mr Chirac's ruling UMP party is riven with animosity, with Mr Sarkozy, the front-runner for the leadership, who is interior minister, at odds with Dominique de Villepin, the prime minister and protégé of the president ...
Chirac III: This Time He's Really Old
Thu, 16 Nov 2006 00:02:00
According to his wife Bernadette, Jacques Chirac is "fighting fit" and ready to run for a third term. Perhaps. Now 73, Chirac has been in politics since the days of General de Gaulle.
In a seemingly well-orchestrated interview, Bernadette Chirac let slip that her husband has not ruled out running for a third term at the Elysée. She told the Nouvel Observateur magazine that too many people think they are living in the aftermath, and it was too early to draw a line under the Chirac reign.
She insisted her husband is "fighting fit" two weeks ahead of his 74th birthday. Despite polls showing opinion is largely against his standing for a third time, Bernadette Chirac claimed that he is still enormously popular in the countryside. Indeed, Chirac's grassroots support has almost always been rural. He regularly refers to his time as agriculture minister as "the time of his life", and is visibly cheered by his regular visits to agricultural salons.
Next year's Presidential elections look, at the moment, to be a head-to-head battle between Ségolène Royal and Nicolas Sarkozy, but French Presidential campaigns are known for sudden turn-arounds, surprises, and... Jacques Chirac's comebacks. Before each of his victories in 1995 and 2002, Chirac was thought to be a political dinosaur - finished and set for retirement.
Some critics have accused Chirac of leading an "anyone but Sarkozy" campaign, putting his favourite ministers in the spotlight to test public opinion. Dominique de Villepin has been a notable failure, while Michèle Alliot-Marie has failed to capture the imagination. If Chirac does run, it may not necessarily be to win the election itself, but to stop Nicolas Sarkozy from becoming President.
Accusations that he would back Ségolène Royal if she were to face Sarkozy in the second round of voting in April are perhaps fanciful, yet Bernadette Chirac has already indicated her admiration for Royal: "She has a look, she is very photogenic. Being a woman may not be enough to win, but it helps - it plays on the subconscious".
The media machine has already started; Jacques Chirac is up to something. We just have to wait and see exactly what he is up to.
Chirac May Seek Third Term, Sarkozy Adviser Says
By Fabienne Lissak and Francois de Beaupuy
Nov. 15, 2006 (Bloomberg) -- French President Jacques Chirac may seek a third term, putting him on a collision course with Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy, the leading candidate of the governing party, a Sarkozy adviser says. ``He'd like to run,'' Patrick Devedjian, a former Chirac cabinet minister, said in an interview in Paris today. ``Jacques Chirac can hope to be in position if his popularity rebounds.''
A challenge may hurt Sarkozy's chances both in the first round of elections and, if he survives, in the runoff. Their relationship has been strained since 1995 when Sarkozy backed Chirac rival Edouard Balladur for the presidency. Sarkozy and Socialist Segolene Royal are now effectively tied in polls. ``Were Chirac to run, Sarkozy would risk being leapfrogged by Royal in the first round, which would handicap him for the runoff,'' said Mathieu Doiret, an analyst at polling firm CSA. ``It would also be harder to unite in the second round.''
Chirac's wife, Bernadette, gave an interview to Le Nouvel Observateur magazine, saying the 73-year-old incumbent may seek re-election. ``He cares about France,'' according to an account of the interview posted today on the magazine's Web site. Chirac is ``very popular'' and has recovered from a hematoma that put him in the hospital for a week in September 2005, she said. ``You see how fit he is,'' said Bernadette, who noted Francois Mitterrand was 72 when he ran for re-election. ``My husband is not the least bit senile.''
What is more, if he chooses not to run, and Ms. Royal (or Sarkozy) wins, Chirac automatically becomes President of the Conseil Constitutionnel (Constitutional Council of France) from where he can help direct the new government, a sort of Über-president president.
However, one report quotes Chirac as saying he does not expect to do this for another five years (which is yet another way of saying he is seriously planning on running for President in May 2007).
I suspect the very high-profile visit of Chirac in China recently was intended to demonstrate that he, and he alone, remains France's best foreign policy leader. Given that earlier this year he threatened to use part of the French nuclear arsenal against Iran if they should use even one such weapon, and considering Iran's continued threats against Europe for supporting Israel, this may be reason enough for Chirac to remain medium-term monarch of France and one of the EU's strongest voices.
He is expected to announce his decision to run -- or not to run -- in March 2007.
However, as I have mentioned before, there is at least a hint or suggestion in the prophecies of Nostradamus that Chirac will lose his popularity among urban voters and that his power will temporarily wane. The first condition has already been met. There are also a number of Nostradamus prophecies that show it is possible for a brief Segolene Royal presidency that is rendered useless during a third World War, with Chirac on the sidelines later being asked to return to the office of president (or monarch of France) just before the end of the war.
Segolene Royal may be the mysterious "lady" who appears in some of Nostradamus' verses that are sometimes identified as Marianne, the female symbol of the French Revolution who eventually became a symbol of the Republic. France often runs beauty contests to confer the honour of "Marianne" on to the winning candidate. In 2000 it was model Laetitia Casta who later went on to become an actress in film and video.
But it is possible that this lady, this modern-day "Marianne," may actually be a future French president. And perhaps it shall be Segolene Royal.
We shall examine some parallel prophecies by Nostradamus that may or may not apply to the years immediately ahead should Chirac be temporarily sidelined whilst Ms Royal reigns as president. Again, there are obscure indications that the presidency itself may either be severely weakened or temporarily abolished by Muslim adversaries during a third World War, even if Mr Chirac is elected.
De terre foible
& pauvre parentele,
land and poor parentage,
Entre Gaulois le
French the least honoured one,
Segolene Royal was born in 1953, not in France, but in the west African nation of Senegal, then a poor French colony until its independence in 1960. Today 95% of its population is Muslim.
The following may explain Nostradamus' claim of "poor parentage": In LIBERTÉ, ÉGALITÉ, FÉMINITÉ, John Thornhill writes:
"Her own tumultuous -- and at times tragic -- childhood certainly appears to have marked Royal for life, turning her into the driven and resolute woman she has become today ... (after leaving Senegal) Marie-Ségolène grew up in France, in a village in Lorraine with her two older sisters and five brothers. They lived in an austerely Catholic environment, where duty rather than pleasure was the order of the day. Her father had fixed ideas about his children: the boys must do their duty and serve their country; the girls must support their husbands while they did their duty and served their country. My father always made my sisters and me feel that we were inferior beings, Royal said in an interview ... Defying her fathers wishes, she won a place at the prestigious Sciences Po university in Paris, where her provincial manners marked her out from the bohemian left-bank crowd. When her parents marriage broke up, Ségolène, then aged 19, helped launch a legal suit against her father for maintenance. It took almost 10 years before the courts ruled in her mothers favor. Her father died of lung cancer in 1982 aged 62."
Our prophet seems to believe this new "Marianne" will use extreme and painful measures to impose peace upon an increasingly restive nation, plagued by periodic rioting by disaffected Parisian youths and a growing Muslim population angry with French laws that interfere with the practise of their religion and under the sway of a popular firebrand mullah in the Lauragues (now Castelnaudary in Aude, southwestern France). Her reign, according to the French seer, will come to a bad end.
Meanwhile, Jacques Chirac has certainly become, or is in danger of becoming, "least honoured" of all of France's presidents to date. Then again, much of the disdain seems to be coming from the same disaffected and angry populace discussed above, many of them living in and around metro Paris and in the southern provinces of France. Despite his flagging popularity, Nostradamus indicates greatness may still be his down the road by regaining control of the French nation and defeating the Islamic armies that will come to invade France under Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during World War III. The "envious one" who dies from a gun shot may be a future political opponent of Chirac's, perhaps Nicolas Sarkozy.
One word of warning on that, however. In May 2002 I used the same quatrain, along with Q3.41, to help predict Chirac's re-election and also that his then-rival, ultranationalist Jean-Marie Le Pen, would be shot in the eye by an assassin. Instead, the gunman's aim swerved too far to the north and west, and right-wing Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn died on French election day, a bullet through his brain. Quatrain 3.41 runs as follows: A crooked one (or hunchback) will be elected by the council, a more hideous monster on earth never seen, the flying shot will pierce his eye, the traitor whom the King received as loyal. These two quatrains may have the uncanny power of fulfillment yet again in 2007.
There is a pending event that may coincide with the election of Segolene Royal: the hanging of Saddam Hussein.
Au port Selin le tyran mis à mort, La liberté non pourtant recouuree Le nouueau Mars par vindicte & remort, Dame par la foere de frayeur honoree.
At the Muslim port, the tyrant shall be put to death, However, liberty shall not be recovered: New war shall start through vindictiveness and remorse, A lady by force of terror shall be honoured.
Sous vn la paix par tout era clamée, Mais non long temps, pille & rebellion: Par refus ville, terre & mer entamée, Morts & captifs le tiers d'vn milion.
Under one man peace will be proclaimed everywhere, But not long after will be looting and rebellion. Because of a refusal, town, land and sea will be broached, A third of a million dead or captured.
NOTE: Selin is from the Greek Selena, goddess of the crescent moon and, thus, a symbol of Islam. The tyrant, Saddam Hussein, is put to death by hanging near the Tigris River. It is now believed that this may not occur until at least late January or February 2007, and quite possibly not until French elections are held in May. This will not end the sectarian violence and terrorism in Iraq, however, as the country plunges deeper into civil war. The "new war" may even extend to other nearby nations such as Turkey, Syria and Iran. The "lady" is Segolene Royal, newly-elected President of France. Terrorism and unrest in southern France and possibly in and around Paris shall be ignited "in honour" of her election victory.
Unike Segolene Royal, under Chirac there appears to be a celebratory air after his being elected and some initial success in establishing and maintaining peace and accord throughout France during a third term. Nor does he appear to stoop to oppression to accomplish this as is indicated in Q3.28 under a Royal administration. However, the eventual results are the same: looting and rebellion by youth gangs, mobs of malcontents, and ethnic Muslims, with a foreshadowing of revolution and an eventual Iranian invasion of southern France.
Thus far, we have tentatively established that when (and if) Segolene Royal is elected president, Saddam Hussein will be executed, civil war will be unleashed in Iraq, and war in the Middle East itself may expand. The following quatrain suggests that war may also begin between the US, Japan, and North Korea at this time. Also, in this verse, Nostradamus actually seems to name Segolene Royal:
Le grand Royal d'or, d'airain
Royal of gold, by brass is augmented,
Perhaps war with North Korea does not take place until the female candidate Segolene Royale ("great Royal of gold") wins the French presidential election next year. Not only is the last name, "Royal," named; but so is "Segolene" with the word "gold."

"I saw your website where you asked if there was 'gold' to be found in the name Segolene, apparently to accord with what looked like a Nostradamus quatrain. The words in Hebrew for Chosen People are 'Am (people) Segola (chosen, treasured, reserved, trilistic). Segol is a Hebrew verb, consisting of three dots shaped in a downward pointed triangle. A bit like the inverse of the 'pax cultura' symbol. It has a mystical interpretation, of the binary relationship of yin and yang, resting on a third coda. Its prosaic origin is as a word used to refer to a king's reserved treasures. This could mean gold and often meant cattle."
Thanks for that!
The reference to "brass" may mean that she does not revive the economy and the times will become substandard ("brass"). It also has the meaning that she rises to power (is "augmented") by raising and investing a great deal of money in her campaign. "Brass" can mean coinage, ie. money.
To Nostradamus, the pudgy-faced Kim Jong Il would have the appearance of a "young man," although he is in middle age.
I suppose the people who are "afflicted" with a "lamentable leader" might be the people of France, since Ms Royal is not portrayed favourably in Quatrain 3.28: "Never in the kingdom has there arrived one so bad." Otherwise, it is the people of North Korea living in hardship under the lamentable "dear leader," Kim Jong Il.
The last line, "barbarians," often is used for Arabs and Muslims. But I suppose Nostradamus, seeing North Koreans, might consider these Mongols as "barbarians" too. Then again, the last line may mean jihad has come to southern France as predicted by Nostradamus, this time either from foreign invasion or by revolution of ethnic Muslims. In any case, a Muslim attack or uprising will be put down with great force and violence, causing their blood to cover the land. Yet another interpretation is that an air war has been launched against Iran around the same time as war with North Korea. Although I doubt such a war will end in victory for the US, the initial air campaign will certainly cause much bloodshed.
Much later, whether Jacques Chirac is president or not, it appears that he will be forced to escape France with the help of Germany. This clearly will occur during a military attack against southern France by Iran. If Chirac is president, prior to his escape, he may have the misfortune of watching his "sons" and "brothers," the fighting men of France, being forced to give up their arms to the enemy or, worse, witness the dispensing of Islamic justice to some of his soldiers when their hands are severed. In the end he shall return, powerful and full of wrath, liberating both France and Spain with the aid of Great Britain, Belgium, Netherlands, and a new, quickly assembled French military.

It should be noted that there are descendents of French royal families who could restore the monarchy if the French people desired it. Here is a summary:
1) Henri Philippe Pierre Marie d'Orléans, Comte de Paris, Duc de France, the Orleanist pretender to the French throne. As king, he would be Henri VII. He was born on June 14, 1933, as son of Henri, Comte de Paris and his wife Isabelle of Orleans-Braganza. He was born in Woluwe-Saint-Pierre, Belgium. On July 5, 1957, he married Duchess Marie-Thérèse of Württemberg (born 1934). He received the title Comte de Clermont. Five children were born out of this union.
The marriage was unhappy, and ended up in a divorce in 1984. That same year Henri married Micaela Cousiño Quinones de Leon (born 1938). They have no children.
|Henri, Duc de France||Prince Louis de Bourbon||Jean, Duc de Vendôme||Eudes, Duc d' Angoulême|
2) Don Luis Alfonso Gonzalo Víctor Manuel Marco de Borbón y Martínez-Bordiú, considered to be the head of the French Royal House by royalists who consider the renunciation of Felipe V of Spain as invalid. They call him prince Louis de Bourbon, and accord him the title Duc d'Anjou (Duke of Anjou). As king, he would be Louis XX. He was born on April 25, 1974 in Madrid. His father was HRH Don Alfonso de Borbón y de Dampierre, Duke of Anjou and Cádiz. He is unmarried.
These two men, Henri Philippe and Luis Alfonso, are in contention with one another for the throne should the royalty ever be recognised again. When Henri passes on, it will likely be his second son Jean, Duke of Vendome who will then contend against Luis, Duke of Anjou, nine years apart in age. I would think that the eldest son of Henri, Francois, would be unable to govern.
Just as Great Britain's Prince Charles is reconsidering going by the name of Charles when he is coronated, the same applies here: any of these individuals could take the name of Henry if that is their wish.

THE TWO TOP '' MABUS '' CANDIDATES
|Middle East: Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, Iraqi terrorist leader||Balkans: Serbian Deputy Prime Minister Miroljub Labus|
Both personalities may be correct. The death
of the first could signal World War III in the Middle East. The
the second might then signal World War III in Europe and global bio-chemical and nuclear holocaust.
THE THIRD ANTICHRIST
|Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. He matches Nostradamus' description of the "Persian conqueror" and Daniel's "fourth king of Persia."||One of two potential Vladimirs prophesied by Josup Terelya: Russian President Vladimir Putin or future Russian dictator Vladimir Zhirinovsky.|
Nostradamus writes of a great leader of Armenia who will be allied to the Persian conqueror. In Nostradamus' day Armenia covered a much larger region that it does today as an ex-Soviet state, spreading northwards into Russia itself.
Nostradamus' Olestant is translated as the Destroyer, a figure who appears in the Bible as "the king of the north."
Daniel says the king of Persia will be one horn of a conquering ram; the other horn "that will be higher" (more to the north) than the other horn will be the king of Media (Media was a vast empire spreading from northwestern Iran, northern Iraq, and part of Syria to the Transcaucasus and southern Russia).
Russia and Iran have had a mutual defence pact since October 2001.
