There was a curious story in the news from China about the sun appearing as double. It was a strange optical effect, and the cause was not immediately understood. When I read this story, I thought of a Nostradamus quatrain that included the line “The cloud will cause two suns to appear:”
Century: 2 Quatrain: 41
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.
Nothing else in this quatrain seems relevant today. The quatrain suggests some disaster would cause the Catholic Pope to flee Vatican City. However, we now know a cloud can actually make two suns appear. If this quatrain is not related to current events, we can appreciate such an event is a literal possibility in the future.
Nostradamus was big on omens in the sky as signposts preceding great events. A great star burning for seven days could be a comet or a star going supernova. The big mastiff howling sounds like events in the sky would cause dogs to bark, but it could be symbolic for something else.
