Based on what I see in quatrain V-23 and how that can be seen as an indication of the missing Malaysian flight MH370, I have searched my Nostradamus database and come up with three other quatrains that seem to fit into a story being told, where a hijacking will be the historically known result (not conjecture, as it is at this point).
If one looks at quatrain V-23, the direction points to Africa. The latest news (3/13/14) had the search area widened, to include the Indian Ocean. Based on this quatrain, I could see how a hijacked airplane could be covertly taken to Somalia and possibly used in a future mission, after it had been modified. The expanded search area now includes straights and gulfs, as well as oceans and sea. This means line four can be read as the “fleet divided,” so more area can be covered in a search for the missing plane. Africa is the key point of focus, and the place in Africa that has become known as a place of hijacking (of commercial sea vessels) is Somalia. It is known as where terrorists (pirates) find refuge. Ships that sail past the horn of Africa “tremble” if they do not have military escorts.
Look at how Africa becomes joined with Asia in two other quatrains, and see how Venus also appears in them. Venus is a symbolic reference to Islam, and Islam’s influence in Africa has spread throughout the whole continent. The element of Asia is also another place where Islamic influences have become issues, more so in recent years. Of the world’s 1.6-billion Muslims, 1-billion Muslims (62.1%) live in Southeast Asia (per Wikipedia). Read over the Old French text, then my translations (keeping in mind translations can and will differ, intentionally, by design, for deeper meaning to come forth).
Les deux contens seront unis ensemble,
Quant la pluspart à Mars seront conjoinct:
Le grand d’Affrique en effraieur & tremble:
Duumvirat par la classe desjoinct.
Mer par solaires seure ne passera,
Ceux de Venus tiendront toute l’Affrique:
Leur regne plus Sol, Saturne n’occupera,
Et changera la part Asiatique.
En l’an bien proche esloingé de Venus,
Les deux plus grans de l’Asie & d’Affrique
Du Ryn & hister qu’on dira sont venus,
Crys, pleurs à Malte & coste ligustique.
Le seducteur sera mis en la fosse,
Et estachez jusques à quelque temps,
Le clerc uni le chef avec sa crosse
Pycante droite attraira les contens.
Them two contained ones will be united ones together,
When there majority in March (at War) being joined:
Him powerful to Africa into terrorist & shaky:
Court of two by reason of there fleet divided.
(Read my post Nostradamus and the Missing Malaysian Airliner for interpretive notes on this quatrain. Go to my website for an in-depth explanation of each line, beginning here.)
Sea by star-lights sharp not will stay on course,
Those of Islam will be holding all Africa:
Their rule more Foundation, Patience not will usurp by force,
Both will transform there portion Oriental.
To read “Sea by stars” (where solaires is seen as distant “suns,” thus “stars”) shows a nighttime event involving a ship, where air-ships sail on the waves of the dark sky, lit up by tiny islands of land. To the period of time when Nostradamus lived, the thought of air travel would seem reversed, as if the night sky became the “Sea” that “contained” “stars.” The word “seure” means “sour,” thus a “sharp” taste; but in connection to quatrain V-23, where “two contained elements” are combined “together,” making a poisonous gas, it might now be identified by the taste, or a production made from an acidic element. The word “passera” is the future tense of “passer,” which can mean “will hold on course,” “will let go,” or “will overreach” (among many other possibilities).
Many of the flags of Muslim nations bear the Crescent moon and star. That “star” is actually the planet Venus. Nostradamus links Islam to the Moon and Venus, while Christianity is linked to the Sun. The statement that “Islam will hold all Africa” is quite true today; but that would not have been the case prior to the 20th century. This is then a timing element, where it can reflect on the main theme (line one) as when Christianity (“solaires“) will sour and no longer proceed to seek most of the central regions of Africa.
For those wishing to hold out hope for loved ones on flight MH370, line two can be read to state, “Those whose flight did not stay on course will go to a Muslim nation, which will be holding all of them as hostages, in Africa.” When this is combine with quatrain V-23, where it says, “majority in March being” (“pluspart à Mars seront“), the realization of this hostage situation may not be known before the 24th of March, or after missing 16 days, which is more than half of the 31 days in March (the “majority of March”).
The capitalized word “Sol” is another place where Christianity can be found, especially as an outreach from the Roman Catholic Church, when “Sol” is recognized as the Latin word for Sun. However, in French the word “sol” primarily means, “ground, soil, land, earth, foundation,” before it means Sun. The capitalization is then an indication of the majority of the “Land” of Africa, or from North Africa to the borders of South Africa, being where Islam has “more rule.” That “reign” will be gained through “Saturnine” exercises and “Harsh,” treatment of those unwilling to convert to Islam. The combination word “n’occupera,” meaning “not will occupy” or “will not usurp by force,” is then reminiscent of the U.S. military involvement in Somalia, where the resistance forced those troops to withdraw, not allowed to be employed there without a full declaration of war.
Into the year well adjoining not driven far off from Islam.
Them two more high ones of Asia & to Africa
With the Rhine River (Germany, Western Europe) & lower Danube River (Eastern Europe, a player) that one will report are arrived ones,
Outcries, lamentations in Malta & coast ligurian (northwestern coastal Italy).
The main theme of this quatrain (line one) begins with the capitalized preposition “En,” which can translate as “In, At, Into, On, Upon, Inside, or By.” The capitalization means an important direction begins this theme, which is greater than simply indicating which way something goes. This can indicate an important Inroad has been achieved, such that an important position has been attained Inside. This is separate from “the year” or “a year” (“l’an“) but one can see how “a year” begins after that important positioning and direction has been reached. This means the word “bien” can stand alone as meaning, “wealth, benefit, riches, or favor,” rather than a meaning primarily focused on “well, good, aptly, quite, or pleasure.” That would mean with the important elements “Inside” or “In” some strategic position, at a timing “well in a year” (such as the month of March would be), would then be able to show “benefit” and “favorable” results, perhaps from having gained access to a “wealth” of technological aids or training. The placement where one has become “In” can then be seen as an area or region that is “near” or “neighboring,” which is “not” expected to be one that typically gave assistance or granted favors. This could be an area of the world like Southeast Asia, which might “not” have been known as accepting “Islam.” The Philippines have long been a place where religious opposites wage open war against one another; and news in the recent past has placed focus on minority Muslims forming rebel groups that are becoming a trouble for the governments of Thailand and Myanmar. That focus can be seen stated in line two’s use of “l’Asie,” or “Asia.” this means the “benefit” can be seen as a presence “In” having “not” been “banished” or “removed.” The element of reference is “to Islam” or “of Muslim,” from the symbolic use of “Venus.”
When line two begins with “Les deux,” it links this quatrain’s secondary theme (line two) to the main theme of quatrain V-23. This is a focus set on “two” important versions of “Them” (the plural pronoun translation of “Les“). This is then a major statement of “two” opposing sides, creating an Us versus “Them” mentality, where each side is “Them” against the other. Whereas quatrain V-23 places focus on “The two contained ones being united,” quatrain IV-68 then adds that “Those two” are “more” aligned together and also “more mighty ones,” through their alliance. When the word “grans” is seen as being a contracted plural form of “grand,” which indicates a superpower, then nuclear weapons becomes the root determination for “greatness.” In Asia, the countries who possess nuclear weaponry are: China, North Korea, India, Pakistan, and the nations of the former Soviet Union (Russia and friends) in Asia. The one Asian country attempting to “benefit” from this “mighty” possession is Iran. The “two” who boarded flight MH370 with stolen passports purchased by Mr. Ali were Iranian, and they had stayed with another Iranian before getting on that flight. The placement of an ampersand means an important point of separation (not addition), such that “to Africa” becomes the place where the “two” would go, from “Asia,” to outside that entire continent’s powers, “to Africa.” Quatrain V-23 told of “Him great,” which can now be seen as “It great” or “It mighty,” as a nuclear bomb of some kind, which will go “to Africa” to be used “as terrorists” see fit.
The aspect of “From the Rhine” can then be applied to the known traveler who was said to be going to a destination in Germany, where his mother had sought asylum and had it granted to her. If nothing more than a symbolic microcosm of the greater intent, a German (EU) destination can be where the “terrorist” will be from, while “to Africa.” It may be that a Boeing 777 was hijacked because it had a nuclear weapon on board (in its storage compartment with the luggage), and either or both are planned to be used to transport “terrorism” to the region of the Rhine River. Since this is getting well beyond the scope of what is known at this point, it is irresponsible to interpret further. However, this quatrain, when linked to V-23, supports that Africa and Asia are united together in terrorism.
Him deceiver will be placed into there cave,
Also fastened ones until with opportunity,
Him clergy united him general together with one’s crooked staff
Piercing (Hot) direct will provoke them contained ones.
I will not go into an interpretation of this quatrain at this time. I will say that the wording of this quatrain, where the main theme begins with some important man, as “Him,” who is a “seducer, misleader, or deceiver,” is intriguing to me. Line one also leads one to focus on a “pit, hole, ditch, channel, fort, camp, or cave.” The world’s foremost terrorist who was a known cave-dweller was Osama bin Laden. The United States Navy, SEALS ordered by President Barack Obama, reportedly executed that important and wanted “Him.” In the process of their successful sneak attack and targeted kill, bin Laden’s body was reportedly tossed in the Indian Ocean, supposedly because the Koran demanded immediate burial … at sea. I think it is interesting that the Indian Ocean is now a search area for the missing flight MH370, because some exercise of revenge could make that a place to make a symbolic statement. Dumping up to 239 bodies there, along with a Boeing 777, would be a chilling sign of an escalation in the War between East and West.
Additional Note: The anniversary of the Osama bin Laden raid, death, and disposal will be May Day – May 1.
I will make more updates to this post later.
I welcome everyone to visit my website that explains many other quatrains ofNostradamus in articles of depth. You may be able to see how this scenario fits into a theme that everyone should be aware of. Thanks again.
Keep in mind that we can manage our future, making it possible to avert some bad things coming, but the past is fixed as the lessons that have created the present, and the present is unfolding towards the future.
Note: Due to this plane being missing for an extended period of time and all of the conjecture that has surrounded what known facts, I have posted an article on my website that will fully explain this quatrain, according to the systems of analysis that make Nostradamus understandable. That will keep me from adding to this post, making it difficult to follow. I have fully explained the first line of quatrain V-23, and the wording reveals how the missing plane can be only one element of a greater scheme. You may find that article here. At this point in time (March 19, 2014) only line one is explained in depth. I will add further explanation, explaining lines 2, 3, and 4, and how those relate to the main theme in line 1, until the full interpretation is completed, as long as the missing flight MH370 proves to be supported in the verbiage of quatrain V-23.
