The year 1999, seventh month,
PAGE SUMMARY: The
first line of this quatrain is the most controversial, since it sets a specific
period of time. For those with an interest, but little background in the writing
of Nostradamus, the tendency was to pull out the calendar and to count months.
The problem was that Nostradamus did not mean the first month of 1999, the
last, or any month in-between. In this insightful analysis, published Nostradamus
expert Clarence Gregory tells us that "The seventh month of the Zodiac, of
the calendar year 1999 is Leo, July 23 to August 22." This puts the August
11, 1999 eclipse over Turkey within the correct time.
Lee May Have Fulfilled
the Prophecies of Nostradamus

Foreword by Marshall
Masters: What Clarence
tells us is that Nostradamus prophecied a sign - not an event. Those who turned
their head with bitter disappointment were looking for an event, which is
sad, because Clarence shows us how the Eclipse of 1999 could very well have
been the fulfillment of prophecy because Nostradamus prophecied a sign!
a recent conversation with Marshall Masters, I was intrigued by his sighting
of a comet he called "Object
B" during the Solar Eclipse of August 11, 1999, and that there has been
an extensive effort to discredit that sighting.
It is widely accepted
by prophecy scholars that the works of Nostradamus are coded some way. Many
of these scholars assert that his quatrains are written in mixed order so
as to further disguise his meanings.
Perhaps this why
many secretly wish to discredit
the "Object B" sightings are doing so because in fact "Object B" represents
the fulfillment of quatrain 10:72 as prophesied by Nostradamus. But, in their
haste to discredit Marshall's discovery of "Object B" they often misused or
misinterpreted the writings of Nostradamus.
The Key to Understanding
I would like to point
out that my work up to this point has concentrated purely on correlating the
quatrains in their proper order to known historical fact. I have spent very
little time in attempting to predict the future due to the inability to document
I claim the title of interpreter, not prophet, but I can fill you
in on the possible outcomes of these quatrains in relationship to other quatrains
that follow in numerical sequence. In my studies I have come to accept two rules:
- Nostradamus rarely
gives all the facts within one quatrain. He usually adds detail with quatrains
that follow the original, and any quatrain that refers to a date, usually
denotes that quatrain as the beginning of a thought that will be added to
rarely discusses an event as such, but rather, alludes to the outcome of
the event. This makes it very difficult to identify until all of the facts
are in. The process can take years and this is why I believe that several
quatrains that follow the 1999 eclipse quatrain, in numerical order may
add to the original thought and deserve further attention
Why the August 1999
was Widely Misinterpreted
During my conversation
with Marshall, he mentioned that he felt it was a disappointment for many,
that this sighting of Object B during the Solar Eclipse did not match with
quatrain 10:72, also known as the "1999, seventh month quatrain."
The year 1999
and seven months
From the skies
will come the great king of terror
To raise again
the great King of the Jacquarie
after Mars to reign by happiness
He also expressed
the opinion that he was delighted to be wrong. At that point, I knew I had to
break his bubble. The fault in Marshall's reasoning, like that of so many others
was that he chooses to take a literal stance in the interpretation of 10:72.
was common because folk literally took the words, "Sept month", to refer to
the either the months July or September. Please keep in mind that in later
quatrains, when Nostradamus chooses to name any month, he does so directly.
Furthermore, by marking
this date concerning a, "king of terror", Nostradamus chooses to name the
seventh month without naming it directly. This leads me to believe that he
was referring to an astrological month, as it is well documented that he was
an active practitioner of the art.
The seventh month
of the Zodiac, of the calendar year 1999 is Leo, July 23 to August 22. This
places the Solar Eclipse and subsequent sighting right in the middle of the
prescribed time period.
My attention was
also drawn to this quatrain, with its unique date, during the August eclipse,
but I had dismissed it as light hearted. This was due to my considering a
Solar Eclipse to be of insufficient significance to warrant an interpretation
of such far reaching possibilities. This all changed with Marshall's news
of the presence of a comet (Comet Lee or "Object B") during the eclipse.
Solar Eclipses have
been noted and predicted for centuries, but how often have the observers been
treated to the unexpected appearance of comets during these events?
The presence of Comet
Lee or Object B does indeed present us with a unique situation. Its presence,
along with the above correlation of the date, compels me to elaborate on why
I feel this event may well be of extreme importance.
Please note, the prophecies
of Nostrdamus were written in French language as it was used in that day.
As with all languages, words and phrases take on new meanings as time passes
an interpretations can and will vary. For the sake of consistency, the English
translations were taken from a Russian web site. This is because the Russians
share a closer cultural history with the French, and a deep respect for the
language. There was a long period of time in Russia, when the nobility preferred
the French language over their own.

10, Quatrain 72
Quand le deffaut du Soleil lors sera,
Sur le plein iour le monstre sera veu;
Tout autrement on l'interpretera,
Cherté n'a garde, nul n'y aura pourueu.
Quatrain in French
L'an mil neuf cens nonante neuf sept mois,
Du ciel viendra vn grand Roy d'effrayeur:
Resusciter le grand Roy d'Angolmois,
Auant apres Mars regner par bon-heur.
When the eclipse of the Sun will then be,
The monster will be seen in full day:
Quite otherwise will one interpret it,
High price unguarded: none will have foreseen it.
The year 1999, seventh month,
From the sky will come a great King of Terror:
To bring back to life the great King of the Mongols,
Before and after Mars to reign by good luck.
