6 Prophecies of Nostradamus about what could happen to us in 2020 (7 photos)
In 1555, Michel de Nostrdam published his Centuries, a book later called The Prophecies of Nostradamus, in which he predicted the future. He accurately predicted many events of the 20th century: the causes of the outbreak of World War I, the outbreak of World War II, Hitler’s rise to power in Germany, the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and even the collapse of the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001.
According to experts, Nostradamus’ predictions cover the period up to 3979. French astrologer and prophecy specialist Amber Michaud deciphered the predictions for 2020 – and found a lot of interesting things …
Here are the 6 highlights:
1. End of the great war.
The prophecy says that the great power of the east will overcome the great power of the west. Although it has not yet reached the point of military confrontation, the United States and China have been waging a large-scale trade war for several years, which escalated in the past year due to attempts by President Donald Trump to weaken the Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei at all costs.
Everything points to the fact that next year this war will end and a new superpower, China, will appear on the world stage.
2. There will be a new king in England.
Queen Elizabeth II of England is 93 years old. Since her coronation, Britain has had 13 prime ministers and the US has 13 presidents.
Although the queen herself has repeatedly said that she is ready to transfer the throne to the heirs, the prophecy of Nostradamus says that “London Bridge will fall”: apparently, the queen will die, and the crown will pass to Charles.
3. The end of the reign of Kim Jong-un.
The people of North Korea live in isolation and an information vacuum: news from abroad practically does not reach this country. According to Nostradamus, the coming year will be decisive for the North Koreans: they will rise up and remove their lifelong ruler, who is only 35 years old.
Apparently, this uprising will be supported by Russia . As a result, North Korea will change beyond recognition.
4. Unprecedented forest fires.
This year, devastating wildfires have blazed across California and the Amazon. But, according to the prophecy of the French predictor, this is only a small fraction of what awaits Europe in the new year: the flames will cover Portugal , Spain , the Netherlands , France and Germany .
In addition, the prophet predicts the collapse of the United States due to uncontrolled fires in California and New Mexico.
5. Catastrophic earthquakes.
Californians have been living in anticipation of a big cataclysm for many years. There has been a lot of talk this year about a coming super-quake after two quakes in California in early June, but the San Andreas never burst.
According to Nostradamus, this should happen in 2020, when Mercury will be retrograde in Cancer (from June 18 to July 12). There will be an earthquake in California so strong that the state will simply go under water.
Another earthquake of magnitude 7-7.4 will hit Turkey .
6. Other cataclysms.
2020 will bring us a lot of destruction. Nostradamus predicts that this will be a record year for tropical storms that turn into hurricanes.
These will be tornadoes with a diameter of 1.6 km and a speed of 320 km/h. The United States will suffer the most from them .
