Nostradamus' verses on fiery, celestial objects.
© Allan Webber October 2017, September 2020.
In earlier chapters I have shown examples where the creation of a Sephirot based
on a cipher found in Nostradamus' text leads to clusters of anagrams related to
the ciphers theme. I also have mentioned that in gathering these together it
brings out story lines that are identifiable from Nostradamus known
interests. The preceding chapter on nuclear events gives examples of this
literary behaviour. This cohesion is not what one would expect to find by
chance and as my research into anagrams in other sources shows although
unexpected anagrams can be found they don't normally show the distinctions and
associations found throughout Nostradamus' Prophecies and the papers that
accompanied their first publication.

This attribute of adhesion to a set number of story lines goes deeper in that
stories from the same era on a different aspect produce clusters that don't blur
into the other threads unless it bears relevance to both. The Sephirot that is
presented in this chapter illustrates this confinement to relevance aspect.
The verses in the cluster shown in the Sephirot are based primarily on the
cipher of fire in the sky which is used in a number of Nostradamus' Prophecies.
Additional ciphers used to place them in the order shown are also from the text
and involve events such as falling walls and the repeated names of towns in
Using this methodology there is one dominant theme that emerges from the
anagrams and it is highly relevant to the concept of fire in and from the sky.
This cluster involves terms with which many may not be familiar but they relate
to objects known in modern times but not in the 16th century.
They are identifiers of fiery celestial
objects and their study. They include:
aerolites: remains of
stony meteorites consisting of silicate minerals that reach the
asteroids: minor planets,
especially those of the inner Solar System. The larger ones have
also been called planetoids.
the most common type of stony meteorites containing small
mineral granules (chondrules).
bright streaks of light in the sky (a "shooting star" or a
"falling star") produced by the entry of a small rocky or metallic body from outer space.
solid pieces of debris from an object, such as a comet,
asteroid, or meteoroid, that originates in outer space and
survives impact with a larger body.
uranologists: persons who
study celestial objects and the universe as a whole.
fiery celestial stones: reference used by Nostradamus
in C2 Q18 line 2.
fire from the sky:
reference used by Nostradamus in several verses.

People including scientists of the 16th century knew little about the nature
of the universe with the main aspects gaining their attention being the sun,
moon, planets, fixed stars and comets. This lack of depth underpinned the
esoteric beliefs given to events in the sky and provided the temperament in
which astrologers thrived. But the 16th century was the watershed for the
scientific revolution that changed the way humankind viewed the universe. It was
the century that began with the revolutionary ideas of Copernicus as to the
roles of the earth and sun as the object around which the planets revolved. And
by the end of that century the motions of objects in space were seen by the well
informed to be elliptical rather rather than perfect circles. But the biggest
change began in the next century when the newly invented telescope enabled
previously unseen objects in the the sky, details on the moon's surface and
features surrounding the planets to be observed. New discoveries and new
understanding brought new language most of which was absent in the 1550s when
Nostradamus wrote his Prophecies.
Despite that background the fire in the sky theme is an important part of Nostradamus' dating method
and particularly so for his prophesied events in the late 21stC
and beyond where he sees the fiery stones having a direct impact
on mankind's future. This type of phenomena not only provides a
dating mechanism but gives the unique environment settings that
bring about mutations of species. And amongst this turmoil Nostradamus sees modern technology giving various interested groups the ability to
resurrect creatures from ancient DNA. Amongst these creations from genetic
seems to have foreseen those who attempt to resurrect Jesus via
cloning as having a major role in the 21st century and beyond. His writings suggest dreadful wars result from each of
the factors so far mentioned.
Also, both before and after these floods, the rains in
many countries shall be so slight, and there will be so much fire and
white-hot rock shall fall from the sky that nothing shall remain that
is not consumed. And all this is to occur, in a brief period before the final
Nostradamus' 1555 Preface
But Nostradamus did need to be responsive to the world view prevalent in his
time. He would have experienced pressure from his admirers to record astronomic
events in his text since it was the omen defining preference of his time. His
major story lines were also driven by motivations of import in his day. Of all
the diverse pressures in the 16th century the most profound related to religion,
religious institutions, religious wars and the predicted return of Christ that
dominates the final chapters of the Bible. Nostradamus wrote his work for two
audiences. The nearest was that of the 16th century group who enabled his
success and the other lay in the future where the great changes he foresaw would
make it possible for people to better understand the realities of time.
Besides the fire in the sky and other ciphers already mentioned there are
several others in the anagrams that relate to the
peripheral stories displayed in the Prophecies. These include anagrams for
peripherals, authentic, miracles, cemeteries, ordinates, locate, direction, sub-normalities and tumors
all of which relate to plausible effects derived from extra-terrestrial DNA.
Absent from the anagrams found in this cluster are those related to nuclear
events and climate change. Their absence illustrates the differentiation that
surrounds the theme defining anagrams. This factor adds further depth to the
concept that these anagrams relating to well defined themes in Nostradamus text
are deliberate intrusions designed to remove the obscurities in the wording of
his surface messages.
One of the intrusive themes applicable to all Nostradamus' story lines is that of his
date coding method since it is essential to the understanding of each. In this
cluster Nostradamus indicates the poetic means for dating fire in the sky events
is based on sonorant word pairs contained in ditrochee (double trochee) meter.
The sonorant aspect implies the sound qualities of l, m, n, r, i / j, w, and
h are employed to give details of fire in the sky objects. Such
conclusions are only made possible because of confidence generated by the
distinctive natures of association and differentiation of anagrams to the the
story lines found in the prophecies and accompanying papers.
all the verses in this cluster refer to our time as illustrated by verse C5 Q40
at the head of the Sephirot. Anagrams for Poitiers, Valois and exposito (child
born out of wedlock) place it in the period that Henry II of France had his
long-running affair with Diane de Poitier (1534-1559).
This period overlapped the time in which Nostradamus prepared and published
his work. Henry II was the son on of Francis I of France and Marguerite
d'Angouleme was therefore Henry's aunt. Marguerite was a very close neighbour of
Nostradamus in the 1530s since her court was in Nerac, one of the closest towns to
Agen where Nostradamus was an associate of the physician Jules Scaliger.
According to a plaque under the portrait shown alongside Jules he was physician
to the Nerac court in about 1541. Marguerite died in
1549 at the time that Nostradamus began his writing his Prophecies.
As far as known Diane de Poitiers did not have any children by Henry in 1538.
In 1553 two years before the first set of the Prophecies were published Henry
IV of France, grand child of Marguerite, was born. It is probable that the
group that influenced Nostradamus in his choice of themes had strong connections
with this Valois, Bourbon line. It is further likely that he was engaged by them
to produce a guide to the future of that line but as he performed that task
he became aware of the drama that awaited the future.
Because of these possibilities based on historical proximity and knowledge of
the regional legendary influence on the destiny of the French royal line it is
not surprising to find a reference to Diane de Poitier and a possible illegitimate child that had a relationship to the Bourbon line. The connection
of this verse with its 16th century lineage to the other verses lies in the
story of a child born in the current era whose DNA history destines him to be
the king and a Christ resurrected. It is indicated that the sound qualities
allow us to date events for the modern royal lineage based on the links between
fire in the sky objects and descriptions of events in verses where the
previously stated sound qualities are evident.
