Which quatrains describe the impact and immediate consequences?
During the bearded star’s appearance,
The three great princes will be made enemies:
Hit from the sky, peace earth trembling,
Pau, Tiber overflowing, serpent on the brink placed.
During the appearance of the bearded star,
the three great princes will be made enemies.
The tremulous peace on earth will be struck from the skies;
the Po, the winding Tiber, a serpent on the shore
Line 1: Comets were called bearded stars.
Line 2: Three great nations – only 3 possible major powers are USA, China and Russia. So they are possible candidates
Line 3: A strike from the sky shatters peace (asteroid in comets tail)
Line 4: Earthquakes in Italy/ France resulting from impact causing flooding.
The arrow from heaven will make it’s journey.
Dead while speaking; a great execution.
The stone in the tree, the pond nation brought down.
The rumour of a human monster, purge and expiation.
Line 1: The asteroid approaches from the heavens like an arrow.
Line 2: The death toll of the impact – people die unexpectedly.
Line 3: stone is the asteroid, pond nation probably England/ Britain (see next quatrain)
Line 4: May possibly refer to the Anti- Christ
Mabus will soon die and there will happen
a dreadful destruction of people and animals.
Suddenly, vengeance will appear, a hundred hands,
thirst and hunger, when the comet passes.
Line 1: The identity of Mabus is still unclear. He is not necessarily the AntiChrist. One strong candidate is Saddam Hussein (invert his first name in a mirror, by which he is universally known).
Line 2: The effects of the impact
Line 3: Note the use of suddenly
Line 4: The comet PASSING is the cause of the turmoil and misery.
The whole of Great Britain, including England,
will be covered by very deep floods.
The new league in Ausonne will declare war so that
they will ally against them.
Line 1 & 2: Continuing the theme, Britain will suffer flooding from the impact.
Line 2 & 4: Italy (Ausonne in south of Italy, stand for whole) involved in war.
