The world's most prolific seer had a few things to say about the events of the next twelve months.
Michel de Nostradamus, who lived in 16th-Century France, was so well known for his predictions of the future that his name has become synonymous with the idea of prophesizing future events.
He wrote a book - 'Les Propheties' - which is still analyzed and referenced even to this day.
Exactly how his writings should be interpreted, however, remains up to the individual, with some arguing that he has correctly predicted many major events and others maintaining that the predictions are too vague to say for sure one way or the other.
For 2023, Nostradamus made a few intriguing predictions, including the following:"No abbots, monks, no novices to learn;
Honey shall cost far more than candle-wax,
So high the price of wheat,
That man is stirred,
His fellow man to eat in his despair."
It's easy to imagine that this refers to the current cost-of-living crisis - and even seems to suggest that, being unable to afford food, people will resort to cannibalism!
Another prediction for 2023 is as follows:"Seven months great war, people dead through evil.
Rouen, Evreux shall not fall to the King.
Could this be a reference to the war in Ukraine, or something else ?
Then again, perhaps it doesn't relate to any real-world events at all.
To round out his predictions, Nostradamus also referenced an apparent disaster on Mars, or, more specifically, "a celestial fire when the lights of Mars will go out."
Could this relate to a future mission to Mars ?
