Very great change to life on Earth is the reason why Nostradamus felt obliged to present his prophecies to the world in a coded form. And the word mutation was his way of summarising his view of such change.
If I had drawn up events as they will happen the people of that realm, sect, religion and faith, would find it so bad that they would listen to fantasies and come to damn that which future centuries will know through seeing and perceiving.
Which has caused me to stospeaking to the popular [media] and putting pen to paper. But now I want to reach out and declare happenings of common interest through incomprehensible and perplexing sentences about future causes. The most urgent are those in which I perceive some human mutation and for which I must find a way that is inoffensive to the weakest ear so all must be written under a more nebulous figure than that of the ancient prophets. 1555 Cesar Preface (PCE2)
Because of their significance it was essential that such changes should be accurately dated and this is what takes place in the verses based on either words or anagrams with mutat as their root.
The precision of Nostradamus' wording must always be taken into consideration when evaluating his meanings and in the two verses that follow doing so clears the way for determining the date.
So C1 Q51 L1 (The head of Aries, Jupiter and Saturn) doesn't necessarily say Jupiter and Saturn at or in the Head of Aries. Instead it may well relate to a set of conjunctions occurring simultaneously starting at the Head of Aries.
With this in mind the first line of C1 Q51 becomes a good starting point since unlike the first interpretation it's timing is readily identifiable.
And this mechanism of a visible astronomic format is what Nostradamus constantly asserts he used in his two prefaces to the Prophecies.
So I have dedicated my nocturnal and prophetic calculations, which are composed out of a natural instinct, accompanied by a poetic furore rather than in accord with the strict rules of poetry. And in the most part they have been composed and are in accord with astronomical calculations... 1558 Epistle to Henry (HEE6)
Easter 2000CE with Jupiter and Saturn at tail, Mercury & Venus at head.
There are a very limited number of occurrences of words or anagrams based on the root 'mutates'. Two non-trivial anagrams for mutation are present in Nostradamus but one of these also includes an anagram of 'mutates'. All normal variants of the root have been sought and are shown in this page. Quatrain C10 Q90 holds one additional variant which extends a true anagram for mutation to become mutational. There are only five verses holding all these occurrences.
The head of Aries, Jupiter and Saturn
Consider the anagrammatic message in line three of C1 Q51 which is given below (anagrams formed by regrouping letter clusters below original text). When doing so notice the ease with which the message is formed and how, once the message is known, it has the ability to make sense of the obscurities in Nostradamus' visible text.
Note: Alignment only occurs in one other verse and Polaris occurs in five other verses.
A comprehensive message arises from the above which is I enclose Polaris route in close alignment to Polar rune sign. This fits closely with the cipher usage that I present in my section on astronomic ciphers in Nostradamus' Code.
There is no doub t that this distinctively astronomic verse contains a hidden message that is itself based in astronomy. And it is this coded message that prevents any ambivalence arising from Nostradamus' visible text.
This is of such import that Nostradamus continues this theme in other verses one of which is shown below.
C1 Q54: On the geopolitical turmoil at the time of Polaris reaching its zenith.
Two revolutions made from the evil scythe
In the current era Polaris is currently the most mobile constellation of the so-called fixed stars as it is is changing its ascension and declination angles rapidly and this justifies a title of the mobile sign given in the visible words of the third line which says The mobile sign thus moves into its place.
In March 2105 CE Polaris will be at its closest point to the spot where the imaginary Celestial North Pole is placed. This occurs around Easter and it signifies the end of Polaris' ascent to the Pole.
It will be over 25000 years before it will once again be as close to the pole. March 2105 CE therefore represents one of the rare moments in astronomic history since it ushers in a Great Mutation of the cycles of the skies.
And the two verses given above contain the other astronomic setting that is required to mark out the century which Nostradamus states is the duration of such [great] mutations.
Of the infrequent occasions when Saturn and Jupiter have been close together in Aries the celestial events of 2000 CE are the most noteworthy. On the 30th of April 2000CE the sun was in close alignment with Polaris while Venus and Mercury were in close alignment with the stars at the head of Aries and Jupiter and Saturn were in close alignment with the stars at the tail (see image at start).
the rarity of occurrence of Jupiter and Saturn in
And there are a limited number of other variances brought about by the slow drift in position over each 854 year period. This led to occurrences in 1821CE and 1881CE.
It is also for this same reason that we find an appearance in Aries tail that is 120 year before 114CE in the year 06BCE, the year that many scholars use as that of the birth of Jesus Christ.
However the period of appearances is generally 120 to 180 years and then a long period of over 650 years where no conjunctions take place.
Again this interpretation of the verses hidden message fulfills Nostradamus' text since the changing of the millennium in 2000 and the changing role of the Polestar in 2100 represent the two changing revolutions that are separated by a century (as in above verse line 1 to 4).
By the above means I am able to give the two verses a rational and logical calendary meaning by referring them to the astronomic events of 2000CE, 2100CE and 2105CE.
The First Verse (CI Q95) containing mutation Anagram- Religion based wars
C1 Q95: Account of Paraclete lineage underpins the re-creation of Jesus as a clone.
The key to the above verse evolves through the same method as I use for the analysis of all verses, namely there is a dominant message through the verse that ties in to a cipher hidden in the anagrams of the verse.
The element that distinguishes this verse is language and power (L.3 ). The hidden word Paracletes is found as par Secte la (parSectela) in the same line and this name is the key to the visible text as well as the mutation that is part of the hidden text. This cipher, Paracletes, is also backed by the anagram of aScenSionS (iSSanceSon) at the end of the same line.
Paraclete which is a name given by the apostle John to the Holy Ghost is notable for its properties of speaking in tongues and it is said to hold many powers. So this word fits Nostradamus own statement and yields its full import.
The Holy Spirit is also involved in the ascension of Jesus which also binds the story at both levels. These two key words are very rare in Nostradamus' text with both appearing together only in this verse and separately in three others (each)
This verse and those already presented highlight how clearly Nostradamus' Epistle of 1558 describes what he has done in the Prophecies:
(NOTE: The term Paraclete/s provides an important cipher within Nostradamus' Prophecies. It appears on three other occasions. In Verse C5 Q6 L.3 (A la main gauche viendra changer le Sceptre) Paraclete lies alongside the anagram for Archangels.
The second verse: C2 Q41- Fire in the Sky.
C2 Q41: Evolution of the soul at the heart of the Prophet's code.
The cipher that unlocks this verse relates to the cloud accompanying a burning star mentioned by Nostradamus in the first part of this verse. It comes from the lettering deux so which is an anagram of Exodus.
This event in Exodus provides the historical allegory underpinning the second of Nostradamus' mutations. Exodus as an anagram only appears in one other line in the prophecies. In the above verse's line it forms a sequence which says Exodus.fear.50(L).or.ruin.applies . This ties in to a message in the next line where Luther is found as an anagram in the same line as the anagram for mutations. and together they form a complete sequence of anagrams which say So. Luther.unite.100(C).larger.mutations. Nostradamus' cipher now has both a past and a 16th C anchor point.
These two verses do as Nostradamus says in regard to mutations, they tell us about the great events, sad, prodigious and calamitous events that in due time will fall upon the principal worshippers. First upon the temples of God.
We can also see that the first mutation applies to a sacred lineage from Christ, while the second verse applies to the manner the institutions of religion are harmed by events involving fire, dust, clouds and burning stars.
The second mutation harbours Nostradamus' predictions of the fiery nature of the events that will impact on the great religions of the world.
C10 Q90: Inhumanity revealed as leaders order chemical attacks on their citizens.
The above is clearly a verse about great differences in successive leaders. It is also apparent that it lacks any mention of religion or a religious figure so it forms a different class of mutation from the previous verse.
This is consistent with the end of Nostradamus' statement on his mutations in his Epistle ..First upon the temples of God, secondly upon those who sustained by the earth, approach such decadence. The key anagram for this particular mutation is also found in the hidden text. It is held in Earthmen (L.4..n themera) and this anagram occurs nowhere else in the Prophecies.
The theme of this verse is the nature of humankind and how its leadershiwill change towards more intelligent and gentler people than the tyrants that have dominated the past which makes Earthmen a very apt key. But this verse and Nostradamus' Epistle leave no doub t that the decadence of scoundrels and their sub version of their rule leads to the great mutations of mankind.
In this as in the other two verses there are many other anagrams that support the main cipher and in this instance the fourth line of the current verse holds the following ominous sequences Alarm in theme (ar mal - in - theme) Fire reaches Earthmen (n themera - ire F - ache Ser).
I have little doub t that the ties between the mutation references left by Nostradamus in his Epistle and his Prophecies are intentional. If so they confirm the methodology I have proposed in my rules and lay the foundation on which the mutations and some of the thousand other calamitous events which will be known to happen in due time can be successfully resolved.
However the mutations that constitute the reason why Nostradamus bothered to write his prophecies are in full display in both his commentary and his Prophecies; no more so than in the following passage:.
It is clear from the above that vast floods accompany the other great mutations producing major transformation to the living space that Earthmen currently enjoy.
Nostradamus reinforces this theme when referring to the Great Pontiff changing his terroir, a wording that links to a change of the geographical conditions to which he has become accustomed.
It is apparent that Nostradamus' Prophecies fall into three streams of which the Mutation of Religion is one, the Mutation of the Earth's environment is a second and the Mutation of the Earth's people is the third. However each of these divides into several sub -streams. This pattern which has its basis in Nostradamus' guidance has determined all my presentations.
There are several major branches to be followed and my other papers cover most of them and in so doing I use the same techniques as used in this paper. Their detailed stories make for melancholy reading but this is what Nostradamus tells us when he states:
