of Nostradamus Prophecies for America
September 11, 2001 the term "Nostradamus" numbered among
the top 10 queries related to terrorist attacks at a popular Internet
the 911 tragedy, interest in the mysterious 16th century seer,
prophet, and astrologer Nostradamus has skyrocketed. Did Nostradamus
predict the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center and Pentagon
tragedy? Author David Ovason now says yes.
rather frankly admitted to obscuring the meanings of his quatrains
in such a way that no one would be able to fully understand them
prior to the events described. Therefore, taking a "proper
look" at the mysterious Nostradamus quatrains calls for knowledge
of astrology as practiced in 16th century France, familiarity
with the 15th century Trithemius planetary periods used by Nostradamus,
and being versed in deciphering the esoteric 16th Century "Green
Language" used by Nostradamus. Fortunately, unlike any other
Nostradamus authors out there, Ovason fits the bill.
of Personal Healing
Despite my highest praise and recommendation of Ovason's previously
written groundbreaking, scholarly, and painstakingly thorough
The Secrets of Nostradamus - upon discovering his latest
book I made an unfortunate rush to judgment.
have to admit that I had misgivings and doubts as to why he might
have chosen to write and release Nostradamus Prophecies for
America so very soon after the 911 tragedy.
upon picking up the small book (179 pages), any harsh judgments
on my part melted into a shared empathy with the author's pain.
Clearly, in writing the chapters pertaining to September 11, Ovason
had been working through his own grief, anger, disbelief, and
shock in the direct wake of the horror.
A Mile In His Shoes
Within hours of the 911 tragedy, reporters had been bombarding
Ovason with questions about "alleged" Nostradamus quatrains
predicting the 911 tragedy. Upon hearing the obviously forged
quatrains, Ovason was sickened that some were treating the horrific,
unimaginable tragedy in a manner that turned it into a game.
quickly informed reporters that the quatrains in question were
nothing more than sick forgery. Further, he told reporters that
- as far as he knew (at the time) - there was no Nostradamus quatrain
depicting the 911 tragedy.
the rest of us, feeling utterly helpless, Ovason then buried himself
in his books and studies.
Ovason's book, The Secrets of Nostradamus - that is admittedly
an extremely "tough read" - Nostradamus Prophecies
for America is a highly approachable and readable book. As
a book of personal healing and hope for the future, it is a book
that has been written for all of us, and not just for scholars
and/or students of Nostradamus.
quatrain that Ovason (and others) eventually went on to "rediscover"
is numbered as Quatrain 6:97.
translations of the quatrain may however be highly misleading.
Ovason carefully translates and then breaks down the quatrain
into sections. He then continues on - using the reliable methods
firmly established in his previous book - to convincingly, succinctly,
and systematically demonstrate just how the quatrain specifically
refers to New York City, 5 hijackers in the first plane, an explosion
in the sky, and even the event's connection with the country of
not everyone can and/or will be convinced by Ovason's thorough
and painstaking scholarship... it's deceptively easy for self-appointed
critics to glibly sweep away something that they've never bothered
to seriously investigate.
Thankfully, once again, Ovason has not written the typical "doom
and gloom" book about the prophecies of Nostradamus. Having
devoted a lifetime to dispelling the all-too-common image of Nostradamus
as a doomsday prophet, Ovason then goes on to provide a message
of hope, healing, and recovery based on a related Nostradamus
quatrain that speaks directly to the aftermath of the 911 tragedy
of the other American prophecies discussed in the book include
the settlement of Jamestown, the Declaration of Independence,
the development of electricity, the invention of manned flight,
and the Apollo space program.
most fascinating of all, Ovason also discusses a quatrain [Quatrain
4:96] where Nostradamus has seemingly predicted exactly how long
the United States of America will continue to survive and stand
as a nation.
"letting the cat out of the bag," I'll only say that
the USA has little to fear for the long foreseeable future.
