Nostradamus C9 Q16: High country of SW Europe
Copyright: Allan Webber, December 2015, Jan 2023
verse C9 Q16 strong astronomic pointers arise from partly overlaying anagrams for
l'aſſemble) and asterismal (tira
l'aſſem) with the latter term meaning
'of or relating to asterisms or constellations'. These two terms imply that the date for this quatrain is
linkable to the current Pole
Star that is in the tail of the Little (or Small) Bear. This star reaches its closest point to the North Pole
It is quite noteworthy that the first line where the above
anagrams are found has another partly overlaying anagram for
sorti), a term which has similar tones as that for
(e L'ambaſſ) which occurs as an
anagram at the far left part of the second line.
This dating allows a landscape to be ascribed that fits to the topics in the text.
Castel Franco and the Riviera identify points located on the western coastline and northern slopes of Italy. The heights of these two towns above sea level mean the
flood events must be well underway; not yet reaching their full height but well enough advanced that
it is possible for a great gulf linking the two locations to exist (see last
line of this verse's text).
The anagrams in this verse relate to five asterisms which
are Altair (Aquila),
(Ursa Minor), Plough (Ursa Major) and
dragon (Draco) .
these the Plough (goulph)
is as significant as that for Small Bear because that term relates to part
of the Large Bear, a name that is in several pairs in this series.
Interestingly the last line can be seen as conveying something like
Replenished Dragon guaranteed Plough not let God
deniers enter which is pleasingly close to that lines text
which says and they will refuse entry to the great gulf.
It is the use of French terms for its critical ciphers that
is my basis for pairing C9 Q16 and
C2 Q69 in the
Astronomy Root series.
Original Verse in English plus French (Benoit Ed.)
Out of Castelfranco will come the assembly,
The ambassador not agreeable will cause a schism
Those of Riviera will be in the squabble,
And they will refuse entry to the great gulf.
De caſtel Franco sortira l'aſſemblee
L'ambaſſadeur non plaiſant fera ſcisme
Ceux de Ribiere ſeront en la meſlee
Et au grand goulphre deſnier ont l'entree
