Here is another important Triplicate Series that ties the economic collapse to political events between Greece and Turkey. Quatrain III-3 mentions a war starting between Greece and Turkey.

As you will read, this is enough of a hint from Nostradamus to connect it to a number of his prophecies.

Turkey Threatens To Invade Greece


Nostradamus Quatrain III-3
Mars & Mercure & l’arget ioint ensemble
Vers le midi extreme siccité:
Au fond d’Asie on dira à terre tremble,
Corinthe, Ephese lors en perplexité.

Nostradamus Quatrain III-3
Mars and Mercury, and silver [Moon] joined together
Toward the south extreme drought:
In the depths of Asia one mentions the Earth trembles,
Corinth (Greece), Ephesus (Turkey) in perplexity.

In the depths of Asia one mentions the Earth trembles” may be an allusion to a new North Korean war.

Consider that “Mars and Mercury, and silver [Moon]” are also frequently found metaphors in Nostradamus’ writings, “Mars [War], Mercury [Henri Selin], and silver [Moon/ Islam] joined together”.

I have interpreted a number of Nostradamus’ prophecies that point to his future hero, “Mercury [Henri Selin]“, appearing to the public after a terrorist attack on a port city or at an airport. Henri Selin may be a veteran of one of the wars in Iraq.

Henri Selin may be joined to war again when the New North Korean War begins.

Toward the south extreme drought” may relate to the drought in South Africa. I have several readers in South Africa, and The Apocalypse is knocking on their front door.

The following two Quatrains mention a crisis involving the gold and silver markets in March and April.


Nostradamus Quatrain III-4
Quad seront proches le defaut des lunaires,
De l’vn à l’autre ne distant grandement,
Ftoid, siccité, danger vers les frontieres,
Mesme où l’oracle a prins commencement.

Nostradamus Quatrain III-4
When the default of the luminaries [gold and silver] is related,
Not far distant from one and other,
Cold, drought, danger towards the frontiers,
Even where the oracle had its beginning [France].

Both Quatrains III-4 and III-5 predict a default in the gold and silver markets. “Proches” can mean “close”, but it can also mean “related” or “connected”. Therefore, Nostradamus seems to be indicating that this Quatrain links to the previous Quatrain or the entire Triplicate Series.


Nostradamus Quatrain III-5
Pres, loing defaut de deux grands luminaires
Qui suruiendra entre l’Auril & Mars.
O quel cherté! mais deux grands debonaires
Par terre & mer secourront toutes pars.

Nostradamus Quatrain III-5
Shortly after the default of the great luminaries [gold and silver]
Which will occur between April and March.
What loss! But two great debonair ones
By land and sea bring relief [to] all parts.

For every 1 ounce of gold, there are 542 paper claims. Nostradamus predicts that those oversold gold and silver contracts will cause the COMEX to default.

I believe that the “two great debonair ones” are Russia and China. Both countries continue to reinforce the economies with physical possession of tons of gold and silver. America supposedly has over 8000 tons while Russia and China have over 1600 and 1800 tons respectively.

However, Nostradamus clearly predicts that the United States sold off its gold reserves.

Every March and April I have used this Quatrain as a temporal signpost in conjunction with Quatrains IX-83 and X-67 to see if war is on the horizon. These three Quatrains in conjunction with a looming war between Greece and Turkey are my indicators that the time is up.


Nostradamus Quatrain II-52
Dans plusieurs nuits la terre tremblera:
Sur le prins temps deux effors suite:
Corynthe, Ephese aux deux mers nagera:
Guerre s’esmeut par deux vaillans de luitte.

Nostradamus Quatrain II-52
During many nights the Earth trembles:
In the spring two efforts in series:
Corinth (Greece) and Ephesus (Turkey) shall swim in two seas,
War starts by two valiant in combat.

The war between Greece and Turkey predicted in Quatrain III-3 is also confirmed here. Quatrain III-3 is also connected to an earthquake in Asia. However, the caveat to understanding these predictions is that earthquakes may be a Nostradamus allusion to the ground shaking from warfare. “In the spring two efforts in series… War starts by two valiant in combat” could imply two invasion attempts or attacks by either party.


Here is another Quatrain that points to political unrest in Turkey and Egypt during the time of an economic crisis.

Nostradamus Quatrain I-40
La trombe faulse dissimulant folie
Fera Bisance vn changement de loys:
Hystra d’Egypte qui veult que l’on deflie
Edict changeant monnoyes & aloys.

Nostradamus Quatrain I-40
False trumpet concealing madness
Makes Byzantium (Turkey) change its laws:
Hystra of Egypt one who wants to protest
[The] Edict changing money and alloys.

False trumpet concealing madness” sounds ominous. The event that “makes Byzantium (Turkey) change its laws” could be the event that triggers the large-scale invasion of Syria and Iraq by the 39-Nation Sunni Alliance.

Hystra” appears to be an anagram of someone from Egypt. I suspect that “deflie” is “défilé” to parade or protest. The tenor implies that the Egyptians become upset when their money is devalued.

In Chapter Thirteen of Nostradamus and the Third Age of Mars, I describe the details of The Sufyani, a powerful Islamic despot that will come from Egypt and be aligned with the Turks.

There are some prophecies that he will flee Egypt and be taken in by Turkey.
