Nostradamus predictions for year 2022
Asteroid strike, Global warming and more
Another year has passed as the year 2021 draws to a conclusion. And we all know what that means: an opportunity to reflect on what we've done, what we've accomplished, and what lies ahead.
However, given the current situation of the world, uncertainty is an unavoidable part of our mental state.
In the twenty-first century, a global pandemic has ground the world to a halt, and the virus does not appear to be slowing down as new strains emerge.
This has left us wondering what awaits us in the year 2022, which is about to begin.
Although the most prominent among them did so roughly 500 years ago, astrologers, numerologists, and tarot readers started to make predictions.
We're talking about Nostradamus, of course.
The important and much discussed book "Les Prophéties," written by the French plague doctor, astrologer, and seer, was published in 1555.
Wars, natural disasters, assassinations, nuclear attacks, and revolutions are among the lyrical prophesies in the book.
Let's have a look at what Nostradamus has predicted for 2022:
A political figure's death or disappearance
"The sudden death of the first character, he will be changed and they will put another in his kingdom."
For some, this means that a key member of the international political community has literally departed. Some believe it relates to North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, while others say it refers to UK Queen Elizabeth II and US Vice President Joe Biden.
Warming of the planet
"Like the sun, the head will seal the shining sea. The live fish of the Black Sea will almost boil."
In this way, Nostradamus predicted a solar storm of unprecedented proportions, the melting of the poles, and a rise in sea level. He predicted earthquakes, floods, and severe droughts, among other things.
Two of the world's most critical challenges are inflation and starvation.
"So high the price of wheat/That man is stirred/His fellow man to eat in his despair."
He claims that because US inflation is at its highest level in four decades, it would spark widespread discontent and possibly lead to people turning on each other for profit. We hope it's more of a metaphor than cannibalism, even if it implies it.
Artificial Intelligence's Ascension
"The Moon in the full of night over the high mountain /The new sage with a lone brain sees it /By his disciples invited to be immortal/Eyes to the south. Hands in bosoms, bodies in the fire."
As technology improves, people are becoming more concerned about artificial intelligence. Prophecies predict that as more AIs achieve "awareness," one of them will become self-aware and take control of our systems. In a world when everything is connected to the internet, we must be cautious.
The End of the European Union
"Sacred temples of the Roman time, will reject the foundations of their foundation."
Those who have spent their lives understanding the writings of the French prophet are persuaded that he refers to the European Union and predicts its demise, which may have started with Brexit and would end this year with the political community's dissolution.
An asteroid collision
Nostradamus also seems to have foretold that the Earth would be hit by an asteroid in 1555, ending in mass death.
The astronomer's predictions are ambiguous about when the alleged 'celestial stone' strike will occur, but he did predict that a 'great fire' will fall from the sky.
