4 Predictions For 2024 From Nostradamus

What does 2024 hold for us? Well according to the long gone Nostradamus the French astrologer, physician, apothecary and supposed "seer" who lived from 1503 to 1566. He made many predictions in his time and some believers say he was very accurate predicting everything from Kings losing their heads to Adolph Hitler and World War 2. He also is very hard to comprehend because he wrote in a style that leads to interpretation and that leads to a lot of misinterpretations. Here are 4 predictions for 2024 from Nostradamus that are very bold and hopefully not true Prince Harry becomes King [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="408"] (Photo by Chris Graythen/Getty Images)[/caption] One of the passages in his long text says that a “King of the Isles” will be “driven out by force.” Some think Nostradamus is referring to King Charles III. Another passage supposedly about Charles says “soon afterward [a disastrous war] a new King shall be anointed / Who, for a long time, will appease the earth,” according to IFLScience.   This one seems very strange because 1) King Charles is still very young compared to his mother and if he did step down, why wouldn't Prince William take the crown? I think this scenario would be very unlikely, but who can ever predict what the future holds these days? Nostradamus supposedly.   China wages war [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="612"] BEIJING, CHINA - (Photo by Kevin Frayer/Getty Images)[/caption] Nostradamus predicted “combat and naval battle” and said that a “Red adversary will become pale with fear, putting the great Ocean in dread.” Some think that the “Red adversary” could be referring to China and their red flag. The “naval battle” could be referring to China’s tensions with the island of Taiwan. Beijing, the capital of China, has the largest navy in the world. We know that China has been very aggressive militarily these days and the world has taken notice. Their planes have buzzed our ships in the areas near Taiwan and even sent to mystery balloons floating over the entirety of the United States. You would be naive to believe that China is a friend and not a foe.   Climate disaster [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="612"] (Photo by David Ryder/Getty Images)[/caption] The climate crisis has become more apparent in recent years with an increase in drought wildfires and record-high temperatures. Nostradamus predicts it will get even worse. “The dry earth will grow more parched, and there will be great floods when it is seen,” he wrote. He also predicted extreme weather events and world hunger. “Very great famine through pestiferous wave,” he said. We can all see that 2023 was a very extreme year for weather with record heat and rain. Is it a natural weather cycle or is there more than meets the eye?   A new Pope [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="612"] (Photo by Sener Yilmaz Aslan/Getty Images)[/caption] Pope Francis could soon see a replacement, according to the astrologer’s predictions. “Through the death of a very old Pontiff, A Roman of good age will be elected, Of him it will be said that he weakens his see, But long will he sit and in biting activity,” he wrote. Pope Francis, who is days shy of his 87th birthday, has been having health issues.  The Pope had to skip the U.N. climate conference because of lung inflammation and breathing problems from the flu. Keep in mind with these predictions for 2024 from Nostradamus for instance this year, Nostradamus predicted the coming of the antichrist as well as a full-blown World War III. Oh boy, I almost hate to share this downer of a prediction with you but keep in mind, old Nostradamus has been wrong plenty of times before. Here's to happy New Year!
