Nostradamus May Earthquake

   In May of 2011, Nostradamus Quatrain #9-83 actually did come true. This Nostradamus prophecy predicted a major (killing) earthquake would occur in 20 degrees of Taurus. Those who know astrology can tell you that 20 degrees of Taurus occurs each year on May 10th or May 11th depending on where you live on the globe. The prophecy was published in the following form in many Nostradamus books printed and released prior to 2011:


  The sun being in 20 degrees of Taurus, the earth shall so greatly shake,

  That the great theatre, filled up, will be ruined;

  The air, heavens and earth dark & troubled,

  Then the infidels will call upon God and the saints.


   The following criteria were necessary for the fulfillment of this prophecy:


  1. - A major (killing) earthquake must occur.

  2. - The sun must be in 20 degrees of Taurus (May 10th or May 11th).

  3. - The earthquake must damage a "great theater" (Great Roman Amphitheater).

  4. - Since all Roman amphitheaters are located in the Mediterranean area, the earthquake must occur on May 11th.

  5. - Infidels (Islamics) must pray to Christian saints (VERY STRANGE for Islamics to pray to Christian saints!)


   A revised and corrected translation of this prophecy is printed below. A link to an Old French dictionary has also been provided in case you'd like to check the Old French word meanings for yourself:


     NOSTRADAMUS QUATRAIN #9 - 83 (corrected version)

   The sun in twenty degrees of Taurus, so strong the earth trembles,

   Sol vingt de taurus, si fort de terre trembler,

   That the great theater, repleted, will be ruined;

   Le grand theatre rempli ruinera;

   The air, sky & land, are dark & troubled,

   L'air, ceil & terre obscurcir & troubler,

   Then the infidel (muslim) will pray to God & the saints.

   Lors l'infidelle Dieu & sainctz voguera.




   Prior to the year 2011 there had never been a major (killing) earthquake recorded on May 10th or May 11th in the Mediterranean. But believe it or not, on Wednesday, May 11th, 2011, a major earthquake actually did occur near the Mediterranean coast of Spain at exactly 20 degrees of Taurus. It was Spain's largest earthquake in 50 years, causing the destruction of many buildings, leaving 9 people dead and 250 injured. In the nearby town of Cartegena a recently restored (repleted) Roman amphitheater was indeed damaged by the quake and it turns out that this area of Spain is populated by formerly Muslim Moors who had been forcefully converted by the Catholic Church to Christianity, and now therefore pray to "God and the saints". As usual, Nostradamus got ever detail correct.
