Nostradamus C1 Q48: Prophets name complicates time -ciphers
Copyright: Allan Webber, December 2015, Mar 2023
Verse C1 Q48 contains one of the seven anagrams for
anchor. All seven are in Centuries I to VI. This conforms to my hypothesis
that Nostradamus had a master copy that was not disrupted and his selection for
the published works although disrupted contain a bias based on the
location of his story lines in his master copy.
The presence of the anagram for anchor indicates this
is one of the verses about his methods. And this being the first with
that anagram makes it the anchor for the astronomy aspects that he
claims underpins his prophecies.
This verse like C1 Q47 references
Nostradamus' use of astronomic code
but this isn't restricted to calendar calculations since here he uses one of the major astronomic cycles to generate fixed astronomic dates within the
prophecies. The first line of text indicates that his modern era predictions
begin in the early 1930s.
This is deducible from the twenty years
of the Moon's reign in the text of the first line. The moon-year is the perfect cycle of nineteen
when like the sun the moon renews its path and
twenty of these added to 1555 the date when this verse was published gives a date
This verse has a further
importance since it clearly shows that Nostradamus doesn't consider the
end of the world is within his visionary range. It can be implied from
his use of 'When the exhausted sun will take up his cycle' that
the 7,000 year reign mentioned in the second line takes us way beyond
the 3797 date he gives for the range of his Prophecies.
twenty years of the Moon's reign have passed
will take up his reign for seven thousand years
the exhausted Sun takes up his cycle
my prophecy and threats will be accomplished.

RELATED EXTRACT IN EPISTLE TO HENRY:
Nevertheless, I wanted to leave a record in
writing..Action commencing from the present time, which is March 14, 1557, and
going far beyond to the events which will take place at the beginning of the 7th
millenary... NOSTRADAMUS 1558
The first line has consecutive anagrams referring to the a source
Paulean Legend. (gne de
l - alune pa).
in two other quatrains beside this one so it qualifies as
a rare anagram.
This verse shows the purpose linking Nostradamus' sources
since the second line has anagrams which say NOSTRADAMIEN PLANETTARIUMS
Animals retained as true harmonic time-ciphers. Alternate anagrams also
suggest this is the true talisman. In the fourth line the anagrams
I complicate time roles Prophet name MEANTIME IN PTOLEMI
COMPACTILE MAP ECTOPLASMIC (spirit) SOLAR TITLE. Most of these anagrams
are extremely rare with animals the most abundant at six occurrences. And these
ideas unite the work of Agrippa with those of the astronomer Ptolemy since both
these men used the idea of musical harmonies to explain the movement patterns of
the planets against the stars. In his work on planetary movements Agrippa
suggests substitute names as code for both planets and significant asterisms
with such a set of names being that of animals and another
that of demons.
