Saturne & Mars en leo Espagne captivue,
Par chef Lybique au conflict attrapé,
Proche de Malthe,Heredde prinse viue
Et Romain sceptre sera par coq frappé.
(Van Berkel, 2002)
Saturn and Mars in Leo Spain captive,
By the chief of Lybia trapped in the conflict,
Near Malta, the heir is captured alive,
And the Roman sceptre is struck by the cock.
Berkel categorizes this quatrain as a horary chart
first line. In the investigation, it is assumed that Nostradamus refers
to a Mars-Saturn conjunction.
In the imagination period (October 16, 1524 - February 27, 1554) this
conjunction occurred on May 20, 1536.
In astrology, Spain is ruled by Sagittarius and Jupiter. In the chart
which is calculated, the MC is in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Aries is in
square with the Caput Draconis.
fulfilment date of this quatrain is December 29, 2451.
