Astrologer Nostradamus' extremely worrying predictions for 2024

Astrologer Nostradamus' extremely worrying predictions for 2024

The late astrologer is said to have made some predictions for 2024

Brace yourself, gang, because late astrologer Nostradamus is said to have made a bunch of predictions about 2024 and it looks like we’re going to be dealing with a lot.

As we say goodbye to 2023, a slew of self-proclaimed psychics have come forward with their own predictions - including one guy who is dubbed 'the living Nostradamus’, who thinks we’ve got an AI uprising in our not-so-distant future.

But many of those who are hoping to have a glimpse into the future look into the past at this time of year, to try and decipher what ancient mystics, such as Baba Vanga, foresaw in the year 2024.

Sixteenth-century French astrologer Nostradamus - who was given the cheery nickname ‘the prophet of doom’ - may have written his famous text Les Prophéties (The Prophecies) all the way back in 1555, but some people believe it can still offer us plenty of clues about what our future holds.

Although his 942 verses are pretty vague, believers have credited Nostrodamus with all kinds of accurate predictions such as the rise of Adolph Hitler, the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the more recent Covid-19 pandemic. Can see where he got that nickname now, to be fair.

And it looks like there's more turmoil on the cards for 2024.

(Another) new King

According to British author and Nostradamus commentator Mario Reading, King Charles III will abdicate the throne due to 'persistent attacks on both himself and his second wife'.

However, it's also predicted that rather than William stepping into his dad’s shoes, as we would expect, it will actually be Harry.

According to the Daily Mail, the prediction is that the new ‘King of the Isles' is said to be a man who has 'no mark of a king', meaning it's unlikely to be the heir to throne we would assume.

A naval battle

The late astrologer also predicted a ‘naval battle’ and said that a ‘red adversary will become pale with fear, putting the great ocean in dread’. Sounds dramatic.

Some think the aforementioned ‘red’ could be a hint towards the flag of China, but I have to say, I think we’re clutching at straws here.

Climate change

Climate disaster is also on the cards, but it’s not like we haven’t been warned, is it?

Nostradamus is said to have suggested that for 2024 things will get worse, writing: “The dry earth will grow more parched, and there will be great floods when it is seen.”

He also wrote that storms will cause 'very great famine through pestiferous wave'.

A new Pope

Catholics could be welcoming a new pope, according to the French astrologer, who wrote: “Through the death of a very old Pontiff, A Roman of good age will be elected, Of him it will be said that he weakens his see, But long will he sit and in biting activity.”

The current head of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis is 87-years-old and has held his position since 2013.
