"The False Trumpet Concealing Madness"

"At the Sound of the Trumpet"

During his lifetime (1503-1566), French prophet-healer Nostradamus made a spot-on prediction that France's king would soon die. He also predicted the Great London Fire of 1666, more than a century in the future. One of his four-line prophetic poems, called quatrains, pinpointed the year 1999 and described an event much like the aerial terrorist attack on New York City's World Trade Center:

In the year 1999, in the seventh month,
from the sky will come the great King of Terror,
bringing back to life the great King of the Mongols.
Before and after, Mars will reign by good fortune.

That of course happened on September 11, 2001, not in 1999 in July or even that September (the prophet's original French says sept). But it was close, and five distressing prophecies mentioning a "trumpet" have now stirred up fresh fascination with the prophecies of Nostradamus.

Nostradamus wrote 942 "prophecies" he said spanned the years 1555 to 3797, using symbolic language to describe future wars and events. He predicted three powerful political "Anti-Christs." Most occultists agree that the first two were Napoleon and Hitler. They disagree about whether the third Anti-Christ has come and gone, is currently alive, or has yet to be born.

A Grain of Salt

Unless you own his original book and know the facts about his life, take information about Nostradamus and his prophecies with several grains of salt. Many falsehoods and "prophecies" he did not write are floating around on the Internet.

Nostradamus first published his prophecies as four-line rhymed poems, called quatrains, in 1555; he was 51 years old. After his death the complete Prophecies of Nostradamus were collected into one volume as books of 100 prophecies each, plus one, and that is how they were first published in 1568. The "1999" prophecy is known as "10.72" (book 10, quatrain #72).

These units of 100 prophecies each are sometimes called "centuries" but that refers only to the units, not centuries of time.

Another grain of salt: Translations from 1500s French into 21st-century English can be an issue. The original "King of the Mongols" phrase in prophecy 10.72 does not say "Mongols" but Angolmois, a word Nostradamus made up. It sounds rather like "Mongols," but that's only a guess. Literally, Angolmois means "Angol people," which might refer instead to the British, who in French are called Anglais, and their nation Angleterre. That's also a guess.

"Mongols" in this prophecy might literally mean Mongolians, but interpreters claim it could also signify the Chinese, Koreans, Central Asians, or Muslims. The "king" is identified variously as Genghis Khan, Osama bin Laden, a Chinese or Korean leader, or Vladimir Putin, appointed Russia's prime minister on August 9, 1999. August is the eighth month, not the seventh, but it's close enough...

Pass the salt.

Might the Prophet's Word "Egypt" Refer to the Whole Middle East?

The "Trump Prophecies"

Nostradamus wrote the prophecies as they occurred to him and not in chronological order. The "1999" quatrain above is one of the few specifically dated. This doesn't mean, however, that the next quatrain discusses the year 2000 or beyond. The prophecies were arranged at random. Seekers must sift through all 924 prophecies to find one or more that seem to fit the circumstances.

So it is with the prophecies linked to President Donald Trump, symbolically associated with the word "trumpet," which occurs five times in the Prophecies.

1.40

The false trumpet concealing madness
will cause Byzantium to change its laws.
From Egypt there will go forth a man who wants
the edict withdrawn, changing money and standards.

1.57

The trumpet shakes with great discord.
An agreement broken: lifting the face to heaven:
the bloody mouth will swim with blood;
the face anointed with milk and honey lies on the ground.

2.44

The Eagle driven back around the tents
will be chased from there by other birds:
when the noise of cymbals, trumpets and bells
will restore the senses of the senseless lady.

3.50

The republic of the great city
will not want to consent to the great severity:
King summoned by trumpet to go out,
the ladder at the wall, the city will repent.

10.73 through 76 (this sequence seems to tell a complete story)

The present time together with the past
will be judged by the great Joker:
the world too late will be tired of him,
and through the clergy oath-taker disloyal.

10.74

The year of the great seventh number accomplished,
it will appear at the time of the games of slaughter:
not far from the great millennial age,
when the buried will go out from their tombs.

10.75

Long awaited he will never return
in Europe, he will appear in Asia:
one of the league issued from the great Hermes,
and he will grow over all the kings of the East.

10.76

The great Senate will ordain the triumph
for one who afterwards will be vanquished, driven out:
At the sound of the trumpet of his adherents there will be
put up for sale their possessions, enemies expelled.

The above is from a reasonably good English translation which also shows the original French so we can check any doubtful words using translation software or a dictionary.

Divining the Meanings

These prophecies sound gloomy or scary, but most of Nostradamus's prophecies are doom-and-gloom predictions about conflicts or power struggles. Some say he was writing in code about the politics of his own time.

The above translations from French into English are close to accurate. Knowing that the Prophecies are written in symbolic language that Nostradamus often borrowed from old Greek and Latin books, or made up, should we or shouldn't we take the word "trumpet" literally and say it represents Donald Trump?

1.40

The false trumpet concealing madness
will cause Byzantium to change its laws.
From Egypt there will go forth a man who wants
the edict withdrawn, changing money and standards.

"Byzantium" is the original name of Constantinople, Turkey's capital, now called Istanbul. It might symbolize for us the capital of the United States, and the first line could refer to a president making sweeping changes to laws and international agreements seemingly without weighing the consequences. If it isn't "madness," it's at least worrisome.

Then who might the man from Egypt be? Might the president of Egypt challenge one or more of President Trump's initiatives?

Or maybe Nostradamus's "Egypt" symbolizes the Middle East in general and the unnamed male will be from there. But the prophecy doesn't say his challenge will succeed.

We can approach the other quatrains the same way, speculating:

1.57

The trumpet shakes with great discord.
An agreement broken: lifting the face to heaven:
the bloody mouth will swim with blood;
the face anointed with milk and honey lies on the ground.

This one is read as an assassination, often of the late President Kennedy, or, because "trumpet" appears, of President Trump. But mostly females anointed their faces with milk and honey, old beauty potions Nostradamus knew about because before he became a prophet, he was a druggist and healer. Today you can still buy milk-and-honey soaps or shampoo. But "milk and honey" might refer to Israel, the Bible's promised "land of milk and honey."

Keep going: What do you think the "trumpet" quatrains mean? The "Eagle" of 2.44 we can't help but associate with the United States, even if Nostradamus died 200 years before the nation was founded.

And let me point out that Nostradamus used four different words all translated into English as "trumpet." They are trombe (1.40 and 1.57), tubes (2.44), trompette (3.50, the quatrain with the wall!) and trompe (10.76). "Trompe" in French means "deception."

3.81: Trump's Election?

Cherry-pick from Nostradamus's prophecies and you can assert that they predict or prove something that aligns with your biases. A popular claim is that Nostradamus, in quatrain 3.81, predicted Trump's election win:

The great shameless, audacious bawler,
he will be elected governor of the army:
the boldness of his contention,
the bridge broken, the city faint from fear.

Why I Favor Book 10's Prophecies #73 Through #76

The sequence below, from Book 10, seems to narrate a story of a Great Joker who loses his loyal fans, moves to Asia and comes to dominate Asian leaders. He has that power because he is "one of the league issued from the great Hermes." ("Hermes" is the Greek name for Mercury, the trickster god who rules the sign Gemini. Donald Trump is a Gemini.) A "Great Senate" confirms the Joker's triumph. But then "at the sound of the trumpet" he is again driven out. His supporters' holdings are sold and his enemies "expelled," perhaps sent into exile.

"The year of the great seventh number accomplished" I interpret as the year 2023, the nearest year reducible by numerology to the number 7. Nostradamus knowingly used numerology in his Prophecies, just as St. John did in the Bible's Book of Revelation.

The year 2023 is also "not far from the great millennial age" beginning in 2001. That future date will bring "games of slaughter," perhaps meaning terrorist attacks or strategic warfare. But those "buried" (the quatrain doesn't say "killed," only "buried") will come out of their "tombs," perhaps underground bunkers or hiding places.

10.73

The present time together with the past
will be judged by the great Joker:
the world too late will be tired of him,
and through the clergy oath-taker disloyal.

10.74

The year of the great seventh number accomplished,
it will appear at the time of the games of slaughter:
not far from the great millennial age,
when the buried will go out from their tombs.

10.75

Long awaited he will never return
in Europe, he will appear in Asia:
one of the league issued from the great Hermes,
and he will grow over all the kings of the East.

10.76

The great Senate will ordain the triumph
for one who afterwards will be vanquished, driven out:
At the sound of the trumpet of his adherents there will be
put up for sale their possessions, enemies expelled.

Quatrain 10.76, with its "trumpet," is also singled out on its own as predicting a leader's confirmation and fall. His supporters, hearing their "trumpet," sell their belongings, maybe even their souls or Senate seats. The leader's enemies are ousted against their will.

Has this "triumph" already happened, and the rest is unfolding? Your guess is as good as mine, or anyone's—but avoid hype, aliens and ignorance. We all must admit, though, that of Nostradamus's 942 prophecies, so encrypted and vague, some of them even by coincidence must turn out to be true.

    I've always been interested in others interpretations of his prophecies. I tried reading his book once and it's not easy. So Well done!
