Saturn in Cancer, Jupiter with Mars:
In February "Chaldondon Salvaterre"
The Sierra Moreña assailed from three sides,
Near Verbiesque conflict, mortal war.

Van Berkel categorizes this quatrain as a horary chart quatrain.
The second line. This quatrain will be fulfilled in February. Nostradamus does not mention the year of fulfilment.
The first line. In the period of imaginations (October 16, 1524 - February 27, 1554), Saturn was in Cancer from June 7, 1532, until July 20, 1534. On December 26, 1532, Mars was in full conjunction with Jupiter in Sagittarius. Saturn was retrograde in Cancer, in opposition aspect with the Sun, the Moon and Mercury in Capricorn.
The fulfilment date of this quatrain is around February 10, 2189. This date corresponds with the second line.

Saturne en Cancer, Jupiter auec Mars,
Dedans Feurier Chaldondon saluaterre.
Saut Castallon assailly de trois pars,
Pres de Verbiesque conflit  mortelle guerre.

Translation (Wöllner, 1926)
Saturn im Krebs, Konjunktion von Jupiter und Mars
im Februar Heilsames Vorzeichen!
Das Waldgebirge Castulo von drei Seiten angegriffen!
Nahe Urbicua Zusammenstoss! Todbringender Krieg!

Wöllner writes that an interpretation of the first two lines as a reference to a conjunction of Mars, Jupiter and Saturn in Cancer is not possible, since such a conjunction does not occur in thousands of years. His dating of the configuration in the first two lines is based upon the assumption that the Mars-Jupiter conjunction occurs in February, while Saturn is in Cancer. As a result, the configuration date is February 1, 2769. On that day, the Sun is on 2 Pisces, Mars on 4 Pisces, Jupiter on 13 Pisces and Saturn on 4 Cancer. Kind-a-like configurations occur, according to Wöllner, also in 3006 and 3623.[1]
February 1, 2769, is a date, according to the Julian calendar. According to the Gregorian calendar, the Sun is on 2 Pisces on February 21, 2769. On that day, Mars is on 5 Pisces, Jupiter on 11 Pisces and Saturn - retrograde - on 4 Cancer. On February 21, 3006, Mars and Jupiter are on 8 Pisces and Saturn retrograde is on 28 Cancer. On February 17, 3623, the Sun is on 28 Aquarius, Mars and Jupiter on 19 Pisces and Saturn retrograde on 22 Cancer.
