9780060196714: The Secrets Of Nostradamus: A Radical New Interpretation of the Master's Prophecies

Nostradamus is the most renowned clairvoyant in Western History. The prophecies, which he began to publish from 1555 onward, have become justly famous. In spite of this David Ovason argues that Nostradamus wrote his prophecies mainly in medieval French and Latin: however, he also incorporated into his texts a little-known alchemical code known as the Green Language, which few sholars have troubled to learn.

David Ovason has studied this secret location, and the light of his discoveries has analyzed a large number of his Nostradamus prophecies. Ovason shows that Nostradamous, besides writing in the Green language, also made special use of astrological codes. This form of astrology was widespread in the sixteenth century, but is little understood in modern times. To ensure the accuracy of his translations of the prophecies, David Ovason reveals the astrological code used by Nostradamus. As a result of these new and far-reaching discoveries -- in both code of the Green Language and medieval astrology -- the prophecies emerge in a more exciting light than before. Reading Ovason's book, one gets the eerie sensation that Nostradamus must have actually witnessed the events he happened -- a true clairvoyant.

About the Author:

David Ovason has spent more than a decade researching the architecture and zodiacs of Washington, D.C. He teaches astrology and has studied the life and writings of Nostradamus for more than forty years. He is the author of several books, including The Secrets of Nostradamus and Nostradamus: Prophecies for America. Mr. Ovason lives and works in England.

From Publishers Weekly:

Little is known about his life, yet the 16th-century French mystic Michel Nostradamus easily remains the most famous prophet in Western history; his enigmatic prophecies, which baffled and frustrated his contemporary clients, have awed and intrigued generations of followers. But according to Ovason (The Secret Architecture of Our Nation's Capital), who has studied Nostradamus for some 40 years, no one has yet successfully penetrated the secrets contained in the prophecies. Because of Nostradamus's deeply arcane approach (including obscure astrological methods and the use of an esoteric code known as the "Green Language"), Ovason argues, the oracles can be understood only through a laborious decryption process. Ovason's technique largely consists of attempting to crack the code at the syllabic levelAhunting down missing vowels, extra consonants, hidden acronyms; even a comma may have a secret agenda. Under this unbearable linguistic pressure, two lines of prophecy rapidly unfold into 20 pages of exegesis more byzantine and torturedAand even less believableAthan its subject. Painstakingly assembled, Ovason's interpretations can be credited only with being at least as farfetched and imaginative as his predecessors'. Furthermore, readers seeking to know what the Nostradamian future really holds will be disappointed, since Ovason firmly maintains that the prophecies are so deeply coded they can really only be accurately deciphered after they are fulfilled. Still, some readers truly committed to the Nostradamus cult will battle their way through Ovason's labored readings; for the rest, the secrets of the future will have to remain forever shrouded in the seer's memory. 25-city radio campaign.
