Nostradamus Predicted Elon Musk’s Rise, Lost Quatrain Reveals

SpaceXSaint-Rémy-de-Provence, France — A long-lost quatrain attributed to the infamous 16th-century prophet Nostradamus has resurfaced and appears to foretell the ascent of Elon Musk, the visionary entrepreneur behind Tesla, SpaceX, and SolarCity. Scholars are scurrying to verify the veracity of the verses, while others are astounded by the eerie similarities.

The quatrain, which was part of the previously undiscovered Centurie XII, Quatrain 87, Les Prophecies de Nostradamus, has been rendered into contemporary American English.

I. Born to wealth, in the south he rose,
Father’s emeralds, his pursuit enclosed.
Great mind, inquisitor of the universe,
Forging the future, his purpose grows clear.

II. A man of a thousand projects, a genius awakens,
With metal and fire, he conquers the skies.
Son of the stars, their fate he unveils,
To Bars he soars, humanity unrailed.

III. Earth withers, hope within his heart,
A new world he dreams, an era without hurt.
Under his reign, carriages without horses align,
Soral energy, his kingdom outlined.

IV. Visionary, prophet of the modern age,
His creations ignite, the old world disengages.
Nostradamus sees him, names him, admires,
Elong, born to riches, the future he aspires.

The quatrain, written in Nostradamus’s cryptic style, makes several striking references. “Born to wealth, in the south he rose” alludes to Musk’s privileged upbringing in South Africa. The mention of “Father’s emeralds” refers to his father’s ownership of an emerald mine. The quatrain also seems to predict Musk’s endeavors with Tesla (“carriages without horses”), SpaceX (“conquers the skies”), and SolarCity (“Soral energy”).

Despite the slightly off spelling of Elon’s name as “Elong” and the destination “Bars” instead of Mars, Nostradamus enthusiasts argue that the prophet often used intentionally altered names and details to create an air of mystery around his predictions.

Skeptics quickly dismissed the newfound quatrain as a mere coincidence or even a hoax, while others are left pondering the true extent of Nostradamus’s prophetic powers. Could this ancient seer have truly foreseen the rise of Elon Musk, or is it just another case of history being twisted to fit a modern narrative? The debate rages on, but one thing is certain: the discovery of this quatrain has sparked a new wave of interest in the enigmatic Nostradamus and his cryptic predictions.

Who Was Nostradamus?

Nostradamus, whose name was Michel de Nostredame, was a Frenchman active in the 16th century. On December 14, 1503, he was born in the southern French village of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. Agen, Salon-de-Provence, and Paris were just a few of the places he called home during his lifetime. His famous book of predictions, “Les Prophéties,” was initially published in 1555 while he was largely based at Salon-de-Provence. On July 2, 1566, Nostradamus passed away in Salon-de-Provence.

Some people believe that Nostradamus’s obscure quatrains accurately prophesied major historical events. Some of the famous prophecies attributed to him are as follows:

  1. It is widely accepted that Nostradamus foretold the Great Fire of London (1666) in Quatrain 51 of Century II. St. Paul’s Cathedral and the dwellings of 70,000 of the city’s 80,000 citizens were lost in the fire that started on September 2, 1666, and lasted for four days. This is the quatrain:

The blood of the just will be demanded of London,
Burnt by the fire in the year 66,
The ancient Lady will fall from her high place,
And many of the same sect will be killed.

The reference to “the year 66” is seen as a prediction of the year 1666, while “ancient Lady” might be a symbol for the city of London itself.

  1. The French Revolution (1789-1799): Nostradamus foresaw the French Revolution in Quatrain 1 of Century IX. The monarchy fell, extremist political factions rose, and tremendous violence followed the 1789 revolution. The quatrain:

From the enslaved people, songs, chants, and demands,
The princes and lords are held captive in prisons:
In the future, by such headless idiots,
These will be taken as divine utterances.

According to one interpretation, this quatrain predicted the French Revolution, in which oppressed citizens would rise, the aristocrats would be imprisoned, and new radical leaders would emerge.

  1. It is widely believed that Nostradamus foresaw Napoleon Bonaparte’s rise to power in Century I, Quatrain 60. During the French Revolution, Napoleon climbed from the ranks of the military to the position of Emperor of France. This is the quatrain:

An emperor will be born near Italy,
Who will cost the Empire dearly,
They will say, with what people he keeps company,
He will be found less a prince than a butcher.

The “near Italy” reference points to Corsica, Napoleon’s birthplace. The quatrain suggests that Napoleon’s rule would be costly and brutal, which can be linked to his military campaigns and the significant loss of life during his reign.

  1. The rise of Adolf Hitler: Nostradamus is believed to have predicted the rise of Adolf Hitler in Quatrain 24 of Century II. Germany entered World War II under Hitler’s leadership, who came to power as the Nazi Party’s head in the 1930s. This is the quatrain:

Beasts ferocious with hunger will swim across rivers,
The greater part of the battlefield will be against Hister.
He will cause great men to be dragged in a cage of iron,
When the son of Germany obeys no law.

“Hister” refers to Hitler, while “the son of Germany” might refer to Hitler’s Austrian origin. The quatrain seems to predict the violent nature of Hitler’s rule and his brutal treatment of those who opposed him.

  1. The Great Banana Famine (Centurie XV, Quatrain 22):

Yellow fruit of tropic lands shall wane,
In the season of the lion’s reign,
Desperation grows, new roots explored,
The world’s delight, by hunger ignored.

This quatrain suggests that the supply of bananas, the “yellow fruit of tropic lands,” will diminish drastically. The mention of “the season of the lion’s reign” might refer to a specific period, while “desperation grows, new roots explored” indicates the search for alternative sources of nourishment as the world’s once-beloved fruit becomes scarce.

  1. The Invasion of the Pigeons (Centurie XIII, Quatrain 9):

Feathered invaders from the sky descend,
In crowded cities, their mischief blend,
The reign of the winged, an uprising unforeseen,
In chaos and ruin, man’s empire demeaned.

This quatrain envisions a sudden and unexpected revolt by pigeons, the “feathered invaders from the sky.” The quatrain suggests that the birds will wreak havoc in “crowded cities,” causing chaos and leading to a decline in human civilization as the pigeons assert dominance.
