Nostradamus predicted cannibalism and a 'celestial fire' on Mars in 2023

Many people throughout history believed that Nostradamus could see the future. Image Credit: PD
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 ?

You decide.

You are right about Mars...what the prediction is obviously about is that Zeus and the other gods will Bar B Q Mars and eat him up.  cannabilism of the gods with Mars as the main course!

If it refers to anything at all, it's most likely the month of March which is "Mars" in French.

...or perhaps it is the planet Mars after all. Let me try another interpretation... so "when the lights of Mars will go out" could maybe refer to when the planet Mars stops to be visible in the sky, from https://www.space.com/39240-when-to-see-planets-in-the-sky.html#section-mars : Then, "a celestial fire" could maybe refer to huge solar flares, maybe another Carrington event (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrington_Event), causing big problems for electrical systems around the world. Would be consistent with what Baba Vanga has predicted for 2023, and also with what I have seen a psychic p... [More]

These are the lights of Mars that go out: https://www.sortiraparis.com/en/arts-culture/walks/articles/179077-thoiry-lumieres-sauvages-2022-2023-le-nouveau-parcours-du-festival-de-lanternes-se-devoile-en-video Mars (French) = March.

Looked up the original quatrain: Du feu celeste au Royal edifice.   Quand la lumiere de Mars defaillira,   Sept mois grand guerre, mort gens de malefice   Roüan, Eureux au Roy ne faillira.   From the celestial fire on the Royal edifice,   When the light of Mars will go out,   Seven months great war, people dead through evil   Rouen, Evreux the King will not fail. So, it's not "lights", but "light".

"Olde Nosty"[AKA; "Nostradamus"], was just another FRADULANT WANNABE MYSTIC HOAX from another time. He couldn't even keep his "Immediate Family" safe in HIS OWN "Time"!  http://3cpo.brinkster.net/OldeNosty.htm

So, a burnt royal palace.  The celestial fire perhaps referring to Mars, somehow? Mars being the planet of war, so the the "light of war" will go out. Seven months war... Whatever.  Obviously not Ukraine.  People death thru evil... what else is new?  That the weather improves when the rain stops? Rouen, Evreux are places in France.  There is however no King in France. Perhaps this will become relevant after humans have colonized Mars?

And "Mars" is the month of March in French. It's March now, heh.

Kid Nostradamus asks his mom: "Mom, what's for dinner?" "Like you don't know, you little prick!"
