Nostradamus A Seer Of The Worlds Future
Nostradamus lived in the 16th century, and devoted his adult life to predicting and documenting the future". He appeared to have dedicated the better part of his life to the science of the occult as well as astrology. His writings give good evidence that he had the ability to see and predict the future. Many of his predictions are profound, and many believe he was spot on in predicting worldly events. Nostradamus's prophecies have been collected and published in several books over the years. Book's that simply listed Nostradamus quatrain's. .His quatrain was odd statements that was not completely clear in meaning, and many scholars over centuries have made it their life's work to decipher these strange quatrain's, and make attempts to give meaning to Nostradamus writings.
Did Nostradamus Have A Quatrain That Predicted The Outcome Of The 2016 Election?
As of late, I noted that one of Nostradamus quatrains has been getting a lot of attention. I must say I have never been one to even make an attempt to decipher Nostradamus's quatrains. The quatrains are very complex. It's my belief that the majority of his quatrains can be tricky, and in the end, have several different meanings. I guess one could say " the meaning could be influenced widely by the person deciphering the quatrain".
Recently a close friend contacted me and expressed interested in some online chatter in regard to one of Nostradamus quatrains. Century 1, Quatrain 57). ( It was apparent that many followers of Nostradamus's predictions felt they had found a quatrain that coincided with the 2016 presidential election. My friend asked if I would have a look at the quatrain, and decipher it. She also was going to work on the quatrain, and then we would compare.
The Quatrain - Century 1, 57 "The trumpet shakes with great discord: An agreement has broken: lifting the face to heaven: the bloody mouth will swim with blood; the face anointed with milk and honey lies on the ground.”
"The Trumpet Shakes With Great Discord."
"The trumpet shakes with great discord." (great discord) In my opinion, the country has not been so unsettled in a very long time, and the people have become louder in their displeasure demanding change in Government. Screaming "drain the swamp" at Trump rallies... (The Trumpet shakes) Candidate Donald Trump has raised questions, as well as disdain in regards to the rise of political correctness in our society. He makes claims that there is deep corruption in Washington, that include our highest officials, the FBI, CIA as well as the Justice Department. A good portion of Americans is not willing to go along with the status quo any longer. The people could be the trumpet, the very sound of the trumpet yelling and demanding change... And it has resulted in "great discord". The word Trumpet could all so simply be referring to Donald Trump. Whereas Trump himself is shaking up the citizen's and causing great discord?
Trump's Promise To American's
"An Agreement Broken: Lifting The Face To Heaven:"
"An Agreement Broken: Lifting The Face To Heaven:" (An agreement broken) Perhaps this statement indicates past ideals that have been given up on, in some respects broken.... ( Lifting the face to heaven) In my opinion many Americans in the last few years have been turning back to God, many that had in some respect not been keeping God in their lives now have turned to the heavens for answers. Perhaps looking to strengthen their religious beliefs in hopes of bringing peace back into the world, and back into their lives. The very structure that religion can offer.
"The Bloody Mouth Will Swim With Blood "
"The Bloody Mouth Will Swim With Blood The Face Anointed With Milk And Honey Lies On The Ground.” In my, opinion this is a very clear message. Whether it is Hillary Clinton or someone else to come in the future. This tells of someone that can bleed an abundance of lies from their mouth, a flawed human being that has no respect for truth. Hillary depicts American's as "deplorable as well as irredeemable". She sees people as expendable. Will she ultimately swim in her own lies? Lies that have spewed from her own mouth? Let's have a look at the second part of the quatrain. A person that was anointed (seem to be born to a given position or career) and has enjoyed an abundance of wealth from a career. The term "milk and honey"well-depicted wealth as well as elitism. I believe lies will ultimately bring the perpetrator down. (lie on the ground). This could be said to be either candidate. However, I believe it's Hillary Clinton, many say Hillary Clinton was born to be a politician, she is also seen by many as an elitist. Her lies have proceeded her throughout her history. She is well known to have made many promises over her career that have not been kept. She is a woman that lies with much ease, it almost appears that she has come to believe her own lies. So, is there yet more lies to come? I believe there will be one specific new horrific lie that will come to light in the last days before November 8th. This lie will be so unexceptionable to the America people, that not many will continue to ignore Hillary's untruthfulness. Her abundance of lies will be her final downfall?
I believe the quatrain referrers to Hillary Clinton, and there will be more lies that will come days before the election. Hillary will lose the election, due to her inability to be truthful...
Update Nov 1, 2016 The fatal Lie Has Come To Pass...
On Friday, October 28th FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to members of Congress that he has new email evidence that "may be relevant in the Hillary Clinton email case". The new emails were found on Clinton's assistant "Huma Abedin" estranged husband Anthony Weiner laptop. Weiner was charged with "Sexting with a 15-year-old, and the FBI found the new emails while investigating Weiner. There is News report stating that the FBI has found over 650,000 emails that could be connected to Hillary Clinton. An investigation is now underway.
Will these new emails contain information that once again shows evidence of Hillary Clintons propensity to lie? Will these new found lies cause her to lose the election? Will she ultimately swim in her own lies, as foretold long ago by Nostradamus? Once again a waiting game...
Did Nostradamus Predict The 2016 Presidential Election
Anyone that has made their lives work deciphering Nostradamus quatrains will tell you. The meaning of his quatrains are vastly hard to predict, and the scholars, as a rule, will not totally agree on the meaning of any given quatrains. Plus, many scholars do not agree on timelines for most quatrains.
So, does the quatrain in question even pertain to this time in history? That question will go unanswered due to the many different explanations that have been provided for this quatrain.
You have read my opinion on this mysterious quatrain, I will have to wait to see if my rudimentary deciphering of Nostradamus's quatrain comes to fruition.
Update - Donald J. Trump Won
After two years I realized I had not updated this article. Yes, Trump won and has been our president for almost two years. I wonder if he will win in 2020? Guess we all will just have to wait and see. So, did Nostradamus really see the future? Did he foretell of the outcome of our 2016 presidential election? It seems he just may have...

A thought provoking article. You have covered the subject nicely

Wonderful interpretation. Really fits the quatrain, in every respect.

Cool Hub. I would say I believe the "The Bloody Mouth Will Swim With Blood The Face Anointed With Milk And Honey Lies On The Ground" part to be talking about violence and change. The blood is war and terrorism around the world. The face anointed with milk and honey are the globalist liberal elites in the EU and similar liberal organizations with a globalist agenda. They are a "face" ie, all their goodwill is just empty words used to mask their evil. They will fall to the ground because of a worldwide movement for nationalism, for people taking back national sovereignty. The "trumpet" could be a play on Trump's name and also referring to his tendency to make big, provocative statements. The "discord" is plain enough to see, so-called social justice warriors and their protests against this democratically elected head of state, just because they believe some vile Buzzfeed gossip about him or feminists wailing about him being racist and sexist when he is not. I've been on the losing side of elections before. I didn't act like such a pampered brat throwing a tantrum over it though!

Awesome piece. Thanks for sharing your interpretations and insights.

Thank You, It was a challenge, I actually have not done much research on Nostradamus. However, I am doing so now. His predictions are very interesting, and many seem to be profoundly right on. Well, now all I have to do is sit back an wait for the election results. The friend that got me so involved actually came up with a much different meaning, and out come of the quatrain. I may just be buying her a new handbag... LOL

Bravo - this seems like quite the tough challenge to interpret, but I think you've done a beautiful job of bringing it into focus.
