Another year has come and gone as the end of 2021 approaches. And with that, we all know what to expect; a moment to reflect on what we did, what we accomplished, and what will come next. However, with the current state of the world, uncertainty is definitely a big part of our state of mind.
A global pandemic has paused the world in plain 21st Century and the virus does not seem to have plans to stop as new variants emerge. This really has left us asking: What will the 2022 that is about to start in store for us? Astrologers, numerologists and tarot readers start making their predictions, but at the end of the day, the most famous amongst them already made his almost 500 years ago. We’re talking of course about Nostradamus.
The French philosopher, astronomer and astrologer, also known as Michel de Ntre-Dame, is widely known for the accurate predictions he wrote in his book “Les Prophties”, a collection of quatrains published in 1555.
What are Nostradamus’ prophecies for 2022?
Nostradamus’ predictions are often broad and generic; that’s is why it is essential to turn to his interpreters to have a more certain idea of what you are proposing, especially due to the fact that they do not give clues about the exact dates on which the events it visualizes will occur. These are his prophecies for the next 2022, according to experts.
The death of a political leader.
“The sudden death of the first character, he will be changed and they will put another in his kingdom.”
For some, this signals the physical disappearance of an important member of the international political community. Some speculate, it could be Kim Jong-Un, the leader of North Korea; for others, Queen Elizabeth of Great Britain; finally, others suggest that it speaks of Joe Biden, current president of the United States.
Dramatic effects of climate change
“Like the sun, the head will seal the shining sea, the live fish of the Black Sea will almost boil.”
In this sense, Nostradamus visualized a solar storm of unprecedented dimensions, the melting of the poles and the rise in sea level. In addition, he predicted earthquakes, floods and major droughts.
Inflation and starvation
“So high the price of wheat/That man is stirred/His fellow man to eat in his despair.”
As the United Stated inflation is at its highest in four decades, he warns us that this will create big turmoil and possibly make people turn on each other for profit. And even though it hints at cannibalism, it’s more of a metaphorical thing… we hope.
The Rise of AI
“The Moon in the full of night over the high mountain /The new sage with a lone brain sees it /By his disciples invited to be immortal/Eyes to the south. Hands in bosoms, bodies in the fire.”
As technology continues to advance, concerns about artificial intelligence increase. As more AI’s begin to gain “conscience”, the prophecies warn us about one of them becoming self-aware and possibly take control over our systems. In a world where everything is connected to the internet we must be weary.
The fall of the European Union.
“Sacred temples of the Roman time, will reject the foundations of their foundation.”
Those who have dedicated themselves to interpreting the writings of the French prophet, assure that he refers to the European Union and anticipates its destruction, something that could have started with Brexit and would end this year with the dissolution of this political community.
