Nostradamus May 11th Earthquake

   On May 11th, 2011, Nostradamus Quatrain #9-83 actually did come true. This Nostradamus prophecy predicted a major earthquake was going to occur at exactly 20 degrees of Taurus. Those who know astrology will tell you that 20 degrees of Taurus occurs every year on May 10th in the U.S. and May 11th in the Eastern world. Nostradamus was therefore predicting a major (deadly) earthquake would occur on one of these two dates somewhere on the globe. This quatrain was published in the following form in numerous Nostradamus books prior to 2011:


  The sun being in 20 degrees of Taurus, the earth shall so greatly shake,

  That the great theatre, filled up, will be ruined;

  The air, heavens and earth dark & troubled,

  Then the infidels will call upon God and the saints.


   The following criteria were necessary for the fulfillment of this prophecy:


  1. - A major (killing) earthquake must occur.

  2. - The earthquake must damage a "great theater" (Great Roman Amphitheater).

  3. - The sun must be in 20 degrees of Taurus.

  4. - Since all Roman amphitheaters are located in the Mediterranean area, the earthquake must occur on May 11th (not May 10th).

  5. - Infidels (Islamics) must pray to Christian saints (VERY STRANGE for Islamics to pray to Christian saints!)


   A revised and corrected translation of this prophecy is printed below. A link to an Old French dictionary has also been provided in case you'd like to check the Old French word meanings for yourself:


     NOSTRADAMUS QUATRAIN #9 - 83 (corrected version)

   The sun in twenty degrees of Taurus, so strong the earth trembles,

   Sol vingt de taurus, si fort de terre trembler,

   That the great theater, repleted, will be ruined;

   Le grand theatre rempli ruinera;

   The air, sky & land, are dark & troubled,

   L'air, ceil & terre obscurcir & troubler,

   Then the infidel (muslim) will pray to God & the saints.

   Lors l'infidelle Dieu & sainctz voguera.




   Prior to the year 2011 there had never been a major (killing) earthquake recorded on May 10th or May 11th. But believe it or not, on Wednesday May 11th (May 10th in the U.S.) 2011, a major earthquake actually did occur near the Mediterranean coast of Spain at exactly 20 degrees of Taurus. It was Spain's largest earthquake in 50 years, causing the destruction of many buildings, leaving 9 people dead and 250 injured. In the nearby town of Cartegena a recently restored (repleted) Roman amphitheater was indeed damaged by the quake and it turns out that this area of Spain is populated by formerly Muslim Moors who had been forcefully converted by the Catholic Church to Christianity, and now therefore pray to "God and the saints". As usual, Nostradamus got ever detail correct.
