Large-Scale Migration

This quatrain was interpreted February 2008.

Century II, Quatrain 19
Newcomers will build a place without defenses, occupying a place inhabitable until then. Meadows, houses, fields, towns will be taken with pleasure. Famine, plague, war, extensive arable land.

Interpretation with Explanatory Remarks
This quatrain probably describes living conditions following North Korea’s nuclear attack, and the fact that a good part of the population will migrate from the north hemisphere to the south hemisphere (or to southern parts of the north hemisphere). However, Nostradamus could also be describing mass-migrations of populations resulting from global warming. In parallel with these migrations, warfare will continue. The reference to “plague” may refer to the after-affects of the use of weapons of mass destruction (their use may be strategic, tactical, or used as terrorist devices).

General Comment: The quatrain portrays a picture of people migrating to other lands. Highlights of the quatrain are:

First, he tells us people will be so happy to get away from where they are that the new areas may not have the required defenses.

Second, while these people move to new lands, the old lands will still be suffering from the chemical/biological/nuclear contamination and war devastation; and,

Third, the old lands (countries) will have plenty of arable land, but it may not be usable. The famine could also be due to radioactive contamination, warfare, or unemployment.
