The Riddle of Quatrain II-41 Solved

Quatrain Century II-41 goes like this:


The great star will burn for seven days,
The cloud will cause two suns to appear:
The big mastiff will howl all night
When the great pontiff will change country.


Our thoughts are that this famous Quatrain of Nostradamus could have been referring to Saturnalia and Saturn and the coming 1,000 years of the Golden Era.

Saturnalia was a seven day festival celebration of Saturn and the 1,000 years of the Golden Era that will reign over the Earth one day.

Saturnalia was celebrated from December 16th – December 23rd and the first line of the quatrain said that the great star will burn for seven days a hint a Saturn which rises in the East December 16th-17th before the Sun.

December 21th Saturn and the Sun conjunct in Capricorn for the first time since 1667 or so and the second line of the quatrain said that the clouds will  cause two suns to appear: Saturn the black Sun and Sol the white Sun.

December 18th the Black Moon/New Moon appeared in the night sky like a big “black” mastiff howling all night. Also, a powerful Super Full Moon appeared December  3rd and dogs were barking as well.

And for the last line in the stanza the great pontiff ( a pagan term from the French that means high priest) will change country or territory, Saturn the King of All The World changed position from Sagittarius to Capricorn December 20th. Saturn was worshiped thousands of years ago by the ancients and high priests. Capricorn is where Saturn is domicile and rules with ultimate power and authority for the next 1,000 years or 2 1/2 years to be exact.
