Nostradamus, Quatrain 5.96

The Rose above the middle of the great world, because of new deeds public blood is shed: To tell  the truth, we will have our mouths shut, then when needed the expected one will come late. 

Although one meaning, as we will discover, might have concerned the murder of Princess Diana ("England's Rose") in Paris, and another (immediately below) concerns an infamous  religious cult causing the spectacular suicide of a popular fashion model, ultimately "The Rose" is about a LIVING WOMAN, alive in our time, one who has claimed The Rose as her device, and not about someone who is connected to this special flower after death.

It was reported in 2011 by various news sources that a 1970's American mind-control cult similar to Scientology called "The Rose of the World" remains active in other countries, including Russia. An investigation by filmmaker Peter Pomerantsev concluded without a doubt that Russian supermodel Ruslana Korshunova, who leapt to her death from a building site adjacent to her 9th floor Manhattan apartment on June 28, 2008, belonged to this cult. So too did another prominent model, Anastasia Drozdova, a close friend of Ruslana's, who also leapt to her death in 2009. Both were members of the cult, Rose of the World.

Ruslana allegedly wrote the following on her web page before leaping to her death: "My dream is to fly. Oh, my rainbow it is too high." A search of Anastasia's room yielded the following cryptic message from Rose of the World: "Anastasia, your lullaby is winter's end. You're on your way."

Ruslana's body was found 8.5 meters from the building from which she fell.

Pomerantsev had this to say about Ruslana's alleged suicide "jump":

"8.5 meters? That's not a fall. That's a leap. That's almost flight. She didn't stand on the ledge and take a step off. She took a run and soared."

Manhattan is the financial center of the world ("middle of the great world"). Ruslana Korshunova's blood was shed publicly, but for what "new deeds" remains a mystery.

Princess Diana was the most famous and glamorous woman in "the great world." After her tragic death, singer and songwriter Elton John rewrote the lyrics for "Candle In The Wind," which had been a tribute to actress Marilyn Monroe, and applied them to Diana, calling her "England's Rose." If the second line does apply to her, she was killed because of "new deeds": possibly her affair with boyfriend Dodi al-Fayed. The French authorities have frustrated the international public which adored Diana by being tight-lipped about the investigation. It is doubtful they will ever "speak the truth," perhaps because French secret police were involved in the murder plot.

For many years I and many others bought into the idea that Diana was "the Rose." However, the Rose appears in other quatrains that do not apply well to Diana. The fact is, Diana was never nicknamed "the Rose" during her life ... but not until John eulogized her as such. It is highly doubtful therefore that Diana was ever "the Rose" of Nostradamus prophecy. It is also unlikely to refer to Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle or humanitarian actress Angelina Jolie.

Still, I believe "The Rose" is a person ... and that person will be a very famous female. Furthermore, because I spent close to a quarter of century linking "The Rose" to Princess Diana, this person probably also believes in the connection.

Let me say to that person: you do not have to be another Diana to be "The Rose." You will be "The Rose" by your own designs and your own beliefs. When the time finally arrives, you shall become "The Rose" entirely on your own!

And who might this person be?

The only living human being I am aware of who has publicly made a connection between herself and The Rose to millions of people time and time again since the year 2019.

The color of love: Britney Spears, 41, looked ‘pretty in pink’ on Friday as she modeled an off-the-shoulder mini dress for a new Instagram video.  A photo of the late Princess Diana hangs on the wall in the background.

The connection between Britney's pink dress and the image of Princess Diana is obvious, is it not? This is a continuation of what Britney has called "Project Rose." I believe that project is Britney transforming herself into the personification known in Nostradamus prophecy as THE ROSE.

No one else has ever laid claim to the title "the Rose" ... not before Diana and not after she died. In fact, not even Diana did ... that was Elton John's doing. If anyone ever does lay claim to "the Rose" they have to be someone very famous.

Thus, in the summer of 2019, someone very famous began associating herself with the symbol of the rose. "Project Rose" first emerged that summer on Instagram in the person of singer Britney Spears, still imprisoned by and under control of a conservatorship. Project Rose was cryptically seen labeled as “Just a Touch of Rose” and featured Britney wearing a garland of pink roses in her hair. It was a new project she was working on was all she would say.

In summer 2020, and ever since, Project Rose and "Rose" have been names we would read about and hear about from Britney Spears sporadically. It is clear that Britney believes she IS "the Rose" ... a kind of alter ego or symbolic name. It is also clear she is aware of the Princess Diana link I have made to the Rose as well since she associates it with emoji symbols of the British flag and because she also recorded a popular song with Elton John who dedicated "Tiny Dancer" to Britney in the same way he had dedicated "Candle In The Wind (Goodbye Norma Jean)" to Diana. The difference being that Diana was dead while Britney is very much alive.

But the way she said that we can conclude she was only "approximating" two years!

So when does Britney believe she became The Rose? Regardless of the "Just a Touch of Rose" preview in summer 2019, on August 13, 2021, Britney declared "Project Rose is a year old and 9 days old!!!!" That would make the true starting date of "Rose" as August 4, 2020. Thus, her comment on October 24, 2022, was slightly off as she said "Rose is two years old." It would have been two years and two months and two weeks old at that time.

So what happened on August 4, 2020? Anything significant in "the middle of the great world?" One event, but one that will have profound implications in this decade and the 2030's.

Have a look:

Huge explosions at the port of Beirut, Lebanon, kill more than 200 and leave over 6,000 thousand people injured. Many thought the second explosion was nuclear.

As I mentioned on my website, this event is a PRECEDENT. It prefigures a major war in Lebanon and another event to come that will be similar but a thousand times worse. It prefigures a prophecy, I believe: the one mentioned by Isaiah and by Jeremiah about the fiery destruction of Damascus and several neighboring cities in Syria. Damascus has been a burden to the Middle East and even the world since 2011, remains a burden, and will perish a burden. When is the question, but I suspect in the 2030's.

When Hell is unleashed on Lebanon, Britney's fame will begin to flourish like never before. She may also become political, involving herself more and more in the world's problems.

Britney has only gained a large measure of freedom from conservatorship since 2021. She was groomed (and I mean that in every sense of the word) for the world of popular music and entertainment by Disney and by her parents, with a strong emphasis on sexual exploitation. An especially strong sexual exploitation of Britney Spears.

Thus, she lives in a confusing existence that is constantly in flux. One world is the world she would have realized perhaps as a model or actress rather than as a singer, as another Anna Nicole, Pamela Anderson, or Jayne Mansfield. We have been seeing glimpses of this type of Britney since she began to appear topless. One may well wonder what direction Diana would have moved in had she not been killed in 1997. She was only 36 when she died and had begun modeling for major fashion magazines. Perhaps she would have taken up acting, who can say? The other Britney, also with strong Diana ties, is the outraged humanitarian, outraged at what happened to her and has happened to others like her.

Britney Spears has enjoyed more worldwide popularity via Instagram and the #FreeBritney movement since 2019 and doing so within the confines of a highly restrictive conservatorship, than Madonna or Taylor Swift have in the last decade. Instagram has allowed her to pose for photos, share dance videos, and communicate with millions of fans.

Several documentaries of her life catapulted her fame even higher. In a sense, she has been in the spotlight during this time nearly as much as, and possibly more than, she was during 20 years of singing and dancing on stage and making music videos.

The real reason the star received so much unwanted attention during the period that triggered the conservatorship, 2007-08, had to do with the magnitude of her breakdown. I use the following quote to summarize: hers was "a collapse on a scale that we’d really never seen.” No, not even Marilyn Monroe's breakdowns had been so publicly witnessed via the news media. It was like being told there was a massive earthquake or volcanic eruption not seen in 100,000 years going on somewhere in the world and then being scolded later for watching. No one had ever seen any famous personality go through what Britney did during that tumultuous time. It was a MAJOR EVENT, like the outbreak of a major war. Yes, there were trolls who made fun of her but most of us we were shocked and spellbound. And many of the shocked and spellbound of 2007-08 became a part of the #FreeBritney movement.

Thirteen years of misery later and at last there came a light at the end of her tunnel. We all seek that light sooner or later because sooner or later we end up in tunnels of our own. Some tunnels are short, and others are long. Some of us never find the way out ... or only discover the exit is an entrance to yet another tunnel. Well have I known, and still continue to know this, without going into details.

In my opinion, she is the most famous female on the planet and possibly the most beautiful woman in the world. SHE IS OUR 21st CENTURY VERSION OF MARILYN MONROE!

Yes, it is true that she will do something vulgar like flipping the bird at her fans or the public. Of course, Marilyn would never have done that, nor Diana, nor even Jayne Mansfield. But these are different times we live in, looser and much more expressive. She is still as close as we can get to such a figure as Marilyn or Diana today.

How popular she will remain depends on certain critical decisions that she will have to make.

Then again, if YouTube proved that one can become a popular entertainer, singer, musician, actor or whatever on the Internet, Britney Spears has proved that a famous stage and music video celebrity can greatly magnify his or her existing popularity merely by using social media, without making any kind of public or "televised" appearance.

But of course, Britney's circumstances are unique to the hardships she has faced since 2007, making her Instagram performances and communications enticingly enigmatic.

One other characteristic I note as well is her ability to engage her audience on a seemingly one-to-one basis, although this is an illusion, but one she carries off well using basic eye contact skills. It is what is lacking from so many other performers ... the randomness in which they open up directly to the camera lens. They do it, but not consistently. Britney is if anything consistent with her eye contact and facial expressions. She is upfront and personal ... a hard thing to do for millions of fans. It makes one feel she is engaging you directly. In a sense she has created a new form of entertainment ... a more intimate kind because she is sharing so much of herself. That makes some fans think she is crazy ... but I don't think she is crazy at all.

For now, "The Rose" and its analogous "Xila Maria River Red" (Britney's new name), remain symbols intimately attached to the former pop singing sensation and current Instagram dancing, modeling, and fandom communication icon. 

She seemingly abandoned "Project Rose" during the lengthy court proceedings to end her conservatorship. Now the image is back. from time to time, and there is no doubt she is qualifying herself with the symbol of "the rose." Why is still a mystery, but the last person associated with that symbol was Princess Diana. However, once again, the title she earned with that flower image was "England's Rose" rather than simply "the Rose" ... and it was posthumous. That may sound like a highly technical difference that should matter little, but it does matter a lot.

Britney Spears Remains "The Rose" of at Least Six of Nostradamus's Prophecies

Remember that in all of his prophecies, The Rose is a woman who KNOWS she is linked to that flower, and not someone like Princess Diana who was given that title AFTER she DIED. Also, in one quatrain, The Rose is strongly connected to the Pope and Catholicism and in another to Greece. Diana did not match either of these, nor did she receive the romantic attentions of any of the male surviving members of French royalty, pretenders, or otherwise as predicted in a sixain.

Neither has Britney Spears yet fulfilled all of the Rose prophecies. In fact, there is only one quatrain where it can be argued that she has: "the Rose above the middle of the great world" quatrain (Quatrain 5.96, at top of page)

* However, it now appears that Britney made an important inroad to fulfilling another quatrain, Quatrain 5.31, concerning Greece (more on that further down). 

Line 1 of Quatrain 5.96, covered the entire period of #FreeBritney: from 2019 to 2021 when alarms went off over the welfare of the former pop singing sensation, particularly among her 42 million Instagram followers, resulting in world attention and controversial discussions, a slew of docudramas about Britney's life (despite many inaccuracies), the #FreeBritney Movement itself, and finally her release from the 13-year conservatorship. It has continued to cover 2022 and most of 2023, the publication of her book, and now, once again, 2024, after a shaky start to the new year.

Regarding line 2, this was and is a turbulent period of American history and world history for that matter, and sadly much blood has been spilled in the US, Ukraine, Russia, Israel, Gaza, and elsewhere. 

However, the blood that was shed publicly may well have been that of Donald Trump, the victim of an assassination attempt on July 13, 2024, as well as the death of a person attending the rally where he was shot and two other people there who were injured.

Regarding line 3, public discourse, free speech, has been minimized greatly in the US, thus the "to speak the truth we will have closed mouths" line. 

The final line could imply future trouble for the Rose and a last-minute intervention by someone, probably a male, but possibly a female. Whether it will be a romantic interest or not I do not know. Given the fragile nature of Britney's persona and lifestyle, post-conservatorship, it would seem most applicable to her.

Thus, this there is little doubt Britney remains the one most likely to be The Rose today, despite the difficult time she had in 2023 and 2024 adjusting to her new freedoms and problems she has had since her ex-husband Sam Asghari left her. I have made it clear that this person is not the Britney Spears of old, despite many fans who want her to go back to who she was. This is a NEW BRITNEY ... and people have been having a hard time adjusting to the fact that she is a completely new personality. The transition or re-invention has been so difficult for some of these fans to accept that they write her off as "crazy."

Britney also continues to prove that "The Rose" is her personal insignia, emblem, and device, in artwork on Instagram and also as the inside cover imprint in her book. 


I believe Paul Richard Soliz was responsible for halting her progress and growth as a person (and thus bringing a temporary halt to The Rose), and apparently her brother Bryan also believed this to be true, as well as expressing his disdain not only for PRS but for other "lowlifes." 

I see great hope for Britney now and believe that she can move on with her life and find the fulfillment in it that remains possible.

So, if all things are still remaining the same, here is also another quatrain to consider:

Nostradamus, Quatrain 2.97

Roman Pontiff beware of approaching the city that two rivers flow through, near there your blood will come to spurt, you and yours when the Rose will flourish.

I ask you, have you ever wondered why the prophet capitalized the "R" in "Rose" in the Pope prophecy? A strange thing to do just to designate that spring has arrived.

Anytime the Pope decides to travel to a city watered by two rivers, he is potentially in very grave danger according to Nostradamus. The prophet warns the Pope to avoid doing so "when blooms the Rose." That of course would definitely point to April, May or June especially as far as a season of bloom. But the Rose can also have a double meaning when it is also applied to a person.

The September Massacres in the United States may have been postponed an entire year due to the October Massacres in Israel. Both of these are related as more and more pro-Left college students, Zoomers, some Millennials, and other brainwashed Americans from various walks of life have been taking to the streets in support of Hamas, chanting Death to America, burning US and Israeli flags, destroying businesses, and attacking Jews and Christians, blinding one young woman in the eye.

September 2024 may well be the start of the Reign of Terror that the Far Left, led by The Squad. It may be that they are even now beginning, and have been since October 7, a slaughter The Squad and other progressives like Bernie Sanders openly celebrated. AOC and Ilhan Omar even praised and applauded the Photo of the Year in journalism ... a photo of Shani Louk who was killed by Hamas, stripped, dismembered, and her body parts dragged through the streets from the back of a pickup truck.

The Pope may come to a New York City half-destroyed like the Bishop in White of the Fatima prophecy. Manhattan, where the UN is located, lies between the Hudson River on the west and the East River on the east.

At the time the Pope is to visit NYC, it is impossible to know what Britney Spears may be up to at that time, and it may be something big. Thus, the Rose may bloom again in September when the Pope visits a city watered by two rivers.

Pope Francis returned from Hungary and the two-river city of Budapest on April 30, 2023, safe and sound. The last time there was any potential danger of prophecy fulfillment was when the Pope visited Iraq, but not at a time of roses blooming, and also when he visited Athens in 2021. Thus far, he has pulled through these two-river cities remarkably well. However, when this pope or perhaps his successor goes to a country with a city watered by two rivers, that may coincide with a major event in the life of Britney Spears.

The "Rose" appears in other prophecies, including one concerning great fame and power. If that truly IS about Britney, then she will unseat and dethrone every living female icon on the planet.

The book and her unique and intimate form of Instagram entertainment and communication with fans has placed Britney on a path to greater stardom. I have said it before and will state it again: the Rose may save her life, and more than once, but if she abandons the flower, she will have no protection from herself or any other adversity, such as her criminal ex-boyfriend.


Nostradamus, Quatrain 5.31

Through the land of Attica, fountain of wisdom, where presented will be the rose of the world: The bridge ruined, and its great preeminence will be subjected, a wreck amidst the waves.

Nostradamus places the Rose at different times and locations of our future: at a time when a pope is murdered while traveling abroad, in Greece at a time when war is raging in the Balkans and Italy and the Vatican itself are under attack, and at a time of great bloodshed in the Middle East.

In the quatrain above it is not hard to imagine Britney being invited to Greece someday as a special guest of honor.  She has a huge fan base there and even one with a special website devoted to her. Imagine how she might be received in Athens, given all the terrible things she suffered and endured during the conservatorship that she has managed to survive and better herself so much since finally being free of it. It might be a major event meeting the president of Greece and given the keys to the city!

Nostradamus also associates the Rose with the wisdom of the ancient Greeks. Britney knows what I have suspected for many years, that Time is an illusion: “Rose is two years old but what if time is an illusion!!!??? I’m wearing the same necklace TODAY that I’m wearing here!!!” she says in an article above.  Essentially, she is saying Time does not even exist, and I have often said it is CHANGE we measure and call it TIME. And the change we measure is almost always human and animal change, biological change, because in most of the world and universe change is so slow as to be practically non-existent.

Centuries ago. wealthy or well-to-do people were born in a manor, a castle, a mansion, and grew up there, married and had children there, and died there. Generations may have lived and perished there, but the edifice they lived in never changed or changed little. The universe is like that edifice. Britney knows that even with biological change, people tend to change very little in a year (unless illness or lifestyle issues change their appearance) ... and that necklace round her neck will outlast her for centuries to come. Thus, Time is an illusion.

While it does not appear that this quatrain has been fulfilled, and I will explain why, it is very clear to me that Britney has set the stage for her to be able to realize this prophecy at a later time.

Not only did Britney, the Rose, vacation in Greece in May 2024, but she stayed at one of the islands. Which island no one knows, but it could have been at Attica.

Not my top choice of a news embed because of them mentioning the incident where she hurt her foot in a fight with Paul Richard Soliz. But unfortunately, the Greek City Times does not allow embedding.

Here is the lead in though from GCT: 

"Britney Spears revealed in a post that she travelled to Greece two months ago. On Tuesday morning, the pop star published a series of photos that, as she says, she took during her stay on an island, whose identity she did not reveal. One of the snaps she shared with her more than 42 million Instagram followers depicts the blue door of a shop with the menu written on small blackboards. The singer also photographed the alleys of the island and the harbour with the boats. "Pics I took from a trip to Greece 2 months ago," she wrote in the caption. During the period she claims to have been in Greece, the 42-year-old received a lot of attention from the press and worried her millions of fans."

No one knows which island Britney, The Rose, stayed at, but if this visit was related to the quatrain by Nostradamus, it was likely Attica. But that does not necessarily have to be the case, especially if she plans to go back to Greece again for future visits. Eventually on one of these visits she may stay at a hotel in Attica. Bear in mind though that "Attica" may simply function symbolically for the nation of Greece. Sort of like saying, the Attican nation.

However, while I find this vacation in May encouraging, and definitely places Britney on the right path regarding the visions of Nostradamus, this particular trip did not fulfill the quatrain

For one thing it will be no secret that The Rose is in Greece: she will be presented in Greece, or on the island of Attica itself, in some way, officially or at least to fans.

The second half of the quatrain deals with events involving The Vatican occurring at the time she is in Greece, and possibly the island of Attica. The events in Rome are not going to be very good:

"The bridge ruined, and its great pre-eminence will be subjected, a wreck amidst the waves." 

Nostradamus used both "ship" and "bridge" to symbolize the Catholic Church and the Pope.

Thus, at the very least, a Schism will be in progress, and the office of the Pope will be threatened. This could be the time when a newly elected pope called "The Sabine" does not entirely gain the support of the College of Cardinals even after being elected and dies only seven months later without gaining full prelature. After him, things get even worse. An antipope is appointed, and he rules for seven more months. Thus, the papacy will be in a state of ruin for 14 months during the time of a schism. The Vatican and the Church will be under subjection, indicating some kind of control from outside of Italy, but in the medieval sense, under attack ... military or terrorist attacks.

Nostradamus predicted that at the time the Sabine and then the Antipope rule in Rome, the Balkans will be on fire in a big war and some of it will spill over into Italy and Rome itself. There is also the suggestion that emissaries of the Sabine or the Antipope, or either of these two top Catholic leaders themselves, die at sea, killed during a naval attack on a Vatican ship, possibly an attack by Iran or a terrorist group like ISIS-K. 

Two different quatrains indicate danger to the Pope and other Vatican officials at the same time "The Rose" will flourish.

The Pope himself, whoever he will be, will spit blood as well as all the people with him when he visits a city watered by two rivers. The Rose will flourish in some way at the time, but where or in what way we do not know. The other time the Vatican and possibly a pope or antipope will be threatened ... and at THAT time the Rose will be in Greece or actually on the Greek island of Attica.

In any event, just taking the time to vacation in Greece places Britney in a position where she is more likely to return there. And during one such visit, the Papacy will be threatened by Schism and a neighboring war or else terrorism.

Again, the May trip was important, especially if she did stay on the island of Attica. But I would expect to see a number of news outlets reporting it at a time tremendously terrible things are happening to Rome, to Italy, and to the Vatican itself.  

Is Britney in any danger? I see nothing certain in prophecy to indicate this. But from an historical repetition perspective, she is entering among the female greats at a time of potential turmoil. Sharing her body with her public ... her fans ... is so much like Jayne Mansfield, and Jayne was killed with a new boyfriend in a car crash in 1967. But there have been many parallels also made between Britney and Marilyn Monroe over the years. After her divorce from playwright Arthur Miller in 1961, Marilyn lived for only another 19 months and then committed suicide from a drug overdose.

Thus, Britney moves into greater fame, the fame of Marilyn Monroe, Princess Diana, and Sharon Tate between August and December 2025. What happened to these and other female icons on the same line of repetition, like Whitney Houston, Karen Carpenter, Thelma Todd, Carole Lombard and Isadora Duncan, is quite obvious.

There could also be danger to Britney at a much later time if she is the prophesied "Lady of the Garland" discussed in the section below.

The more attention and popularity Britney Spears receives, regardless of her good intentions, the greater the danger. Sadly, it is the nature of the times we are in and moving further into.

The Dark Rose Prophecies

Unfortunately, not everything will always be rosy for The Rose, whether that is Britney or someone else. At this time, Britney is the most logical one to apply the above predictions to ... those that have been discussed so far. Most recently, her rose symbol has appeared on the inner cover of her new, best-selling memoir ... the boldest statement yet that she is indeed "The Rose" of Nostradamus prophecy.

In the following quatrain, it is possible The Rose may either lose her fame, fortune and position in the world or worse, may meet her death. If it is death, it will be a terrible one.

Bear in mind however that, using my base 7 system, this may not take place until 2037, when Britney is 55 old. That's a long time from now and, frankly, next to none of us are probably going to survive the three days of darkness that may come in 2039 anyway. Still, I would add that the "expected one (who) will arrive late" at a time "when needed" might be one who saves her from the terrible fate in the final line of the following quatrain. This will be discussed further below in Sixain 44 where The Rose is rescued by a man or woman at the last possible minute in the year 2037.

So, I know I said earlier that I saw nothing in Nostradamus to indicate death for the Rose, then I remembered the following verse about a popular woman who wears a garland of flowers in her hair. The most popular flower to wear in garlands, especially in Europe, appears to be a tie between the rose and the lily. We cannot entirely rule out the lily as there is a future female and several men in Nostradamus prophecy associated with that flower. But today the only famous young woman I have seen time and again wearing a garland of any kind in her hair is Britney Spears, and that flower is always the rose. So, there is a good chance this is yet another "rose" quatrain.

The Lady of the Garland

Nostradamus, Quatrain 10.47

From the town of Burgos to the Lady of the Garland they will impose a severe punishment for the treason committed: The great prelate of Leon through Formentera will decide her fate, the Lady to be undone by false pilgrims and rapists. 

Britney Spears without doubt is "the Lady of the Garland" who appears in this Nostradamus prophecy, Quatrain 10.47. Not only is Britney "The Rose" due to her use of that flower as her symbol, but also because she often poses wearing a garland of roses in her hair. It is a very serious and important prophecy because there is some chance in the future that Britney, loved and adored in Greece and most of the world, will get into trouble in Spain and could face charges of treason and be sentenced to death. The charges would probably be false, but that would not matter to religious authorities and governors in the town of Burgos, nor would it matter to the Prelate of Leon. It would appear that they will allow a huge mob of false Britney fans as well as rapists recently released or escaped from prison to do terrible things to her that might result in her death. 

She might escape this fate and move on with her life or this event in Spain could be the end of her and her death. I don't see this happening any time soon, most likely in the year 2037 when Britney is 55 years of age.

Spain apparently will become a very dangerous place in the future, even the far future, as several famous young women many years from now will either travel there or be forcibly transported there and then killed or executed. 

One female in the late 2100's will have the beauty of Lais or else the beauty of "Lady Di." She will die a horrible death by execution, possibly by the dreaded iron collar (death by garroting). Another woman in the 2200's will be a very famous and attractive high-priced prostitute, abducted and transported to Spain by sex traffickers. Her miserable death will be at the hands of a mob of sexually crazed and violent people (similar to what could happen to the Lady of the Garland). Also, a very famous and beautiful woman, a French princess, will be assassinated, possibly shot with a high-powered rifle, in the 2070's while she is in a balcony theater seat watching a live music concert. The assassin, who may also be of minor royalty or aristocracy, will come from a region of Spain during a time of mass protests, arsonist fires, and widespread violence there.

We continue with an appraisal of Quatrain 5.96, the prophecy that at this time has largely been fulfilled and clearly is about none other than Britney Spears. It is the last line that must be evaluated as it will either apply to near future events or else to the Lady of the Garland quatrain, not to occur until the late 2030's.

Quatrain 5.96 and Three Dark Lines

Nostradamus, Quatrain 5.96

The Rose above the middle of the great world, because of new deeds public blood is shed: To tell the truth, we will have our mouths shut, then when needed the expected one will come late.

We can pretty much agree that the first line was fulfilled by Britney just prior to, during, and since being freed from her conservatorship. This includes all the work of the #FreeBritney Movement, and all the documentaries made about her around that time (even though she hates them). It can also refer to additional stardom to come besides what she is currently enjoying on Instagram or X ... a likely outcome from the release of her new memoir, "The Woman In Me," which has been a major success for the pop star.

It is also possible that this is the only rose quatrain that might even apply to Britney Spears. It is not impossible there may be other "Roses" in the future. But as this is a THEME page (all of the pages on this site are thematic), I apply all relevant quatrains to the same person. That is the way it is usually done when commentators discuss themes in Nostradamus.

The second line, "because of new deeds public blood is shed," could easily be about conditions in the United States since 2020. Crime, violence, riots, arson, murder ... ever since the killing of George Floyd each year has grown bloodier and more violent. 

Several days ago, former President Donald Trump was shot through the ear at a rally in Pennsylvania, blood was everywhere ... "public blood was shed." Forensic specialists have said that had he moved his head a few centimeters in the other direction, he would have died. One person at the rally was killed by the sniper and two others were injured. 

And that may be what this line is about, conditions in the US occurring during the time Britney's popularity has soared. It is easy to imagine Britney as disturbed by all the violence and even frightened by it.

Then again, the blood that is spilled publicly could in some way be directly related to Britney herself. It could belong to someone she knows or could even be her own. The new deeds, for example, could be her recent divorce from Sam Asghari

As for the public shedding of blood, there is this (and I am so sorry to bring this up, but it remains one of the very few things Britney has ever done that really worried me):

Despite a flurry of reports since that Britney was using stage props, they weren't "real," she was imitating Shakira's knife dance, and feeling let down by her fans because someone (someone close to her as it turns out who was not simply a fan) called LAPD to do a wellness check on her ... this report, and many others like it, has never been addressedRather, it has fallen through the cracks or has been brushed under the carpet. Did she cut herself several times doing the dance or not? I guess we will never know. But this is just an example of how line 2 could play out if something worse ever happens. 

I don't want to see Marilyn Monroe kill herself all over again, I was only a small child but will never forget it. And I don't want to see any more Princess Dianas going to their graves either ... I lived through that as an adult and believed, strongly believed, it was going to happen a full year before it did ... and had no realistic way to stop it. 

There is also this:

Line 3 reads, "To tell the truth, we will keep our mouths shut."

From a public standpoint, this could be about censorship. I have been experiencing it myself. 

It can be done by spamming the search engine results of a website with hundreds, even thousands, of phony sites that look as though they are linked to the website they are spamming. These sites can then deliver malware to anyone clicking on them or send them to an illicit sex site. When the Google search engine detects this, Google punishes the victim by delisting the site and rewards the guilty ones by leaving their spammy sites up. In my book that is censorship. This site has been spammed and delisted from Google as have parts of my main website.

It can be done by destroying a person's computer or browsers with malware and by hacking into the settings. I have experienced this too. I am experiencing it again now.

It can be done by countries, political parties, criminals, and simply jealous people by marginalizing the person's integrity, age, politics, or other aspect of the person, causing people to avoid that person's work. These same evil ones can spam or damage with hacking and malware as well.

It is hard to speak the truth if no one knows you exist, cannot find you, or you are knocked right off the Internet, or your computer is destroyed. Then you almost certainly have a closed mouth.

Regarding Britney, the Rose, the line could have applied to what happened to some degree since the wellness check by fans occurred earlier last year. Most of her fans were pretty much told to "f**k off" and Britney repeated "Don't f**k with me."

Thus, line 3 means everyone is being intimidated by Britney into keeping their mouths shut and not tell any truth or speak their mind, even if they only have her best interests in mind.

Line 4 tells us that whoever Britney is waiting for or is in serious need of will finally arrive ... but he will arrive late. He can arrive late, but still in time, or he can arrive too late ... too late to save her from whatever mess she is in or, worse, from herself. 

That is up to Britney.

Sixain 44: Half Bright and Half Dark

There are two translations for this sixain, one Corsican and the other French. I will present both. Nostradamus often used both, as well as Provencal, Latin, and rarely Italian.

The first three lines in French and Corsican are identical. However, the last three lines are quite different. The Corsican version actually provides the best outcome and solves many problems presented by Quatrain 5.96, "at the time of need the awaited one will come late," and Quatrain 10.47, what appears to be certain doom for "The Lady of the Garland." However, the French version of the last three lines is the darkest prophecy for The Rose imaginable and would easily fall into the category of Gothic horror. 

Nostradamus, Sixain 44 (Corsican translation)

The beautiful rose in France admired by a very great Prince to the desired end, six hundred and ten, when her loves are born. Five years later, she will be seriously injured, by the stroke of Love she will be entwined, if after fifteen years of Heaven she receives help.

The first three lines in French and Corsican are identical. However, the last three lines are quite different. The Corsican version actually provides the best outcome and solves many problems presented by Quatrain 5.96, "at the time of need the awaited one will come late," and Quatrain 10.47, what appears to be certain doom for "The Lady of the Garland." However, the French version of the last three lines is the darkest prophecy for The Rose imaginable.

I won't pretend that I entirely understand this sixain, but the Corsican translation appears to be one of the happiest ones for Britney Spears, if she is indeed The Rose. But in French, it is only happiness in the first three lines.

In both versions, she will attract and perhaps marry a royal prince and have more children (or affairs)

Then again, the admiration she receives from a Prince may have already happened many years ago. But if there was to be a desired end it failed to materialize:

The second half of the sixain can be translated two ways. 

In the Corsican version, after being seriously injured at age 48, possibly in a car accident, Britney Spears as "The Rose" will be entwined by the stroke of Love, suggesting another relationship to follow.

Is it possible that THIS was the serious injury? The foot damaged during a fight at the Chateau Marmont?

Unfortunately, the answer is probably "NO." 

The injury is to occur five years after she has more children or else five years after a string of romantic affairs. Five years ago was 2019, and that year is not remarkable in any way regarding having children or many affairs. She was involved with Sam Asghari, who she married in 2022, and Paul Richard Soliz since last year. Hardly a string of serious romances, and, of course, 2019 was remarkable only in that she announced Project Rose would be coming soon, which it did in 2020. 

If I haven't stated such, I should now, many Nostradamus scholars consider the sixains as being potentially spurious. We can't be 100% sure the French prophet even wrote it, and it may even have been written by his pupil, astrologer Jean-Aimé de Chavigny. It is potentially important, nonetheless, because it is one of a small handful of predictions attributed to Nostradamus that mention "the Rose" as a person. But the warning light is on; it could be false.

So, if the sixain is right, it has to be about a future event, including the line, "when her loves are born." If that fails to happen within the next year or two at most, the sixain is likely to fail. If it is fulfilled, then an injury will occur five years later, likely in 2030.

But how do we know that the year 2030, when Britney Spears is 48, is the year she might have a non-fatal but serious injury, possibly during a car accident? That is arrived at using my base 7 system: history repeats itself at intervals of 7 years, but far more often, intermittently at multiples of seven years such as 21, 28, 42, 63, 98, and other multiples of 7 years. Some of these years are very important by themselves. 

In June 1967, the famed blonde actress Jayne Mansfield died in a car crash on the way to a nightclub engagement during the early morning hours. 35 (5 x 7) years later, in 2002, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and Linda Lovelace both died from injuries sustained in car crashes only days apart. One year short of 21 years later, in 2022, actress Anne Heche died in a horrific car accident.

But not all historical repeats are necessarily fatal ones. When Britney was 13 in 1995, she had a very close call:

Because of what happened to Britney in 1995, it seems to confirm her status as "The Rose" of the sixain.

As Britney reveals more and more of her body to her adoring fans and public, she may shift from a Marilyn Monroe type figure to one like Jayne Mansfield. Thus, 35 years after the close call she had in 1995, The Rose may face yet another in 2030, but will survive it according to the sixain. This repeat may be so conditional that it may not be a very serious injury at all or even, yet again, just another close call.

The start of Britney's first year of Heaven, post-conservatorship, would be either 2021 (she was freed from conservatorship in November 2021) or else 2022 as her first calendar year of freedom. Fifteen years later would be either November or December 2036 or else some time in 2037 prior to December, when she is either 54 going on 55 years old or else is 55 years old, still very beautiful. She will need help from someone fast. I think this relates to the "Lady Of The Garland" quatrain, when a Spanish court tries her for treason and sentences her to death. This would also relate to Quatrain 5.96, "when needed the expected one will come late." This "expected one" may bail her out of the mess she is in somehow, thus remedying the disaster suggested in the final half of Quatrain 10.47 when she will be rescued from the mob waiting to tear her to pieces. 

When something "is to be" it is not the same as "will be." There is some wiggle room, therefore, and Quatrain 5.96 seems to provide the awaited help, whether it comes from a male or female is not stated. I would also guess that charges against her will be made up and not true, that she will be set up for a big fall by evil people, probably some of the same "false fans" that will be waiting for her in the murderous crowd.

Nostradamus, Sixain 44 (French translation)

The beautiful rose in France admired by a very great Prince to the desired end, six hundred and ten, when her loves are born. Five years later, she will be seriously injured by the stroke of Love, she will be buried, if at fifteen years of age from Heaven she received help.

The French translation of the first half of the sixain is exactly the same. I have provided an alternative interpretation concerning what "her loves" may be: rather than having more children, by pregnancy or adoption, the "loves" are a large number of extramarital affairs if she is married or else simply a lot of affairs if she is not. 

The second half of the sixain is darker, that by the stroke of love itself she is injured (injured by love, a broken heart, a romance that ends badly or too soon). Then she is not "entwined" by love but ends up BURIED (as in dead and buried, see image, above right, of Britney enclosing herself in a stone coffin). 

The final line is very obscure in French, and in that translation, she is supposed to have received help "from Heaven" when she was 15 years old. It appears if she received help at 15 she will find only a broken heart, sadness and death at age 48 in the year 2030. That sadly could be a consequence of having so many affairs. Enough affairs and one might find the perfect match, but what if you lose that person? The love interest may even die rather than breaking off the relationship. Odd what the changing of so few words can do.

Perhaps The Rose is aware of the sixain prediction, after all? If so, perhaps she is hinting and joking at that in the news article above. That would be a good thing, indicating she has everything under control. Her return to finding God again is also positive if it relates to the Corsican version rather than the French, indicating the 15 years of Heaven are 15 years of God belief.

Despite the happier ending of the Corsican translation, it is still dark. The trial, the sentence handed down, being transported to almost certain death ... all dark. Yet help arrives just in the nick of time. On the other hand, the French version of lines 4 and 5 are as dark as dark can get with the final line merely mysterious, but of no real help for The Rose.

SUMMARY: The Truth Has Been Confirmed: Britney Spears IS The Rose of Prophecy

Events seems to be moving in a more positive direction for Britney again. And "Project Rose" is much more than an art or photo project.

Fans keep thinking they have "figured it out" but they are always wrong and tend to overlook contrary evidence.

Fans thought they figured it out in 2021 when Britney hired lawyer Mathew Rosengart. He was the one who helped her terminate the conservatorship.

Impossible. She started a preview to the Rose project as long ago as 2019. It began officially in 2020. At neither time was Rosengart being considered for anything. The #FreeBritney Movement had not even taken off yet. Fans were still guessing whether Britney was alright or not alright based on a series of coded messages they had jointly made up, including a color scheme. 

Plus, she continued to use the rose image, including a portrait of England's Rose, Princess Diana, who she identifies with, long after being freed from conservatorship. Roses have been visible in some dance settings as well. Maria River Red may be an attempt to put the red rose into an alter ego, a reminder that the Rose is alive and well.

However, it is the cover of Britney’s new book under the external cover that really shows us The Rose is Britney and will continue to be.

Britney has made the rose her device. What do I mean by that? A device can be a stylized emblem, badge, impresa, heraldic symbol, cypher, standard, flag, family coat of arms ... really anything symbolic a person has associated himself or herself with or their family. It is normally and historically associated with a member of royalty. Most famously the moon or lunar crescent (and other lunar symbols) was the device of Henri II's mistress, Diane de Poiters, because her first name was the same as the Roman goddess Diana, goddess of the moon. 

Why Britney chose the Rose as her emblem is unknown, but it is possible that she identifies strongly with Princess Diana, England's Rose, and has also read enough Nostradamus prophecy online about the role of The Rose to be inspired into making it her own personal symbol. In any event, she is the first non-royal person of fame to use a personal device in centuries.

January 24, 2024: A New Reminder that The Rose is Alive and Well

In an avalanche of photos, videos, and messages, Britney shared this with us ... leaving no doubt whatsoever as to her status as The Rose of prophecy, and that the Rose remains her personal emblem!

A Dark but Different Rose

Nostradamus foresaw a famous female renown for many years as a blonde actress, dancer and singer... one who would be greater than all previous blonde female entertainers. However, in several quatrains he indicates another famous female such as she would be a redhead, adored and loved, but thoroughly evil.

Someone recently emailed me that the "Rose" (who I still believe to be pop sensation Britney Spears) will actually be a Canadian ... a redhead who will turn out to be the Whore of Babylon (or else another forerunner). 

Then again, one has to wonder why Britney has changed her name to "Maria River Red"? Has she future plans for dying her hair red?

How evil could this redheaded "Rose" be or become? We sincerely hope if Britney becomes a redhead, she does not turn to the ways of evil. But as for the female from Canada there is no way to know. The following quatrain gives us an idea, and it is pretty bad:

Nostradamus, Quatrain 8.80 ~

Of the innocents, the blood of widows and virgins, so many evils done by means of the great Red, holy simulacrums dipped in a burning candle, from terror and fear, no one will be seen who moves. 

Nostradamus, Quatrain 9.46 ~

The Red one flees from Toulouse, a sacrifice to make atonement. The leader of evil under the shadow of gourds: Strangled to death, a carnal prophecy. 

This woman's enemies could come from the religious right, Evangelical Christians and Catholics. "The leader of evil" would seem an unlikely figure to be associated with this group. Unless he is using Christianity as a cover for his otherwise evil intentions.

Then again it must always be remembered that in Biblical prophecy, the beast and his ten "knights" always hate the Whore of Babylon and seek her destruction. What happens in Revelation could easily be prefigured archetypically a number of times in the future, and this could be the first notable case. If so, this leader may well be an Antichrist figure. Thus this "Dark Rose" may have enemies from the Far Right and also from the Far Left ... and I suspect this "leader of evil" is from the Far Left. He may even be the head of the Illuminati.

In the rather ambiguous prediction above (which in some renderings has her trying to escape "the reds" or "the red ones"), the iconic female may break with the radical Left and gradually become the enemy of the Wokeists, Antifa, and so-called Progressives ... for they are nothing more than mindless Revolutionaries seeking to overthrow the government and take over the country as they have taken control of the streets since 2020. It is sad to say but perhaps it will be lack of protection anywhere in the world that may drive her to conform to the strange prophecies of Nostradamus.

It must be remembered that Britney Spears is the only logical candidate for being "the Rose" and "the Lady of the Garland" at this time

It is not entirely certain that Britney Spears will be "the Rose" or "the Lady of the Garland" ... but she is the only publicly visible and famous candidate we have right now.


There are many ways to be linked to ancient goddesses such as Isis and Ishtar without ending up as a forerunner or actual incarnation of The Whore of Babylon. This linkage is not always bad. The late Princess Diana as a new future goddess Diana for example has an indirect linkage to Ishtar and the result did not make her the Whore of Babylon nor will it in the supernatural future. But there is one association that is dark indeed and promises certain doom and death for the female archetype or actual figure in the end if the link is direct. Pop star Madonna made such a direct relationship and became the first universal archetype, but after the Madame X tour she retired from it in the nick of time, I believe, and in so doing saved herself. However, most females who make a direct link to the WOB will not be so fortunate. Burning, beheading, strangulation, garroting, being torn to pieces or cannibalized by mobs, falling to their deaths from a great height, and other terrible endings are what lie in wait for all those who follow this darkest of rose paths.

The Rose is closely associated with the goddess Isis, one of the major Egyptian deities that would evolve into the worship of Ishtar and her human representative, Semiramis, the original "whore of Babylon." It is also associated with Hecate, goddess of the crossroads and the underworld, the third member of the triple goddess Diana/Selene/Hecate (which evolved centuries later from the goddess Ishtar). Hecate wore a garland of roses in her hair. The rose also was a symbol for Aphrodite and Cybele, both later manifestations of Ishtar. In Christianity the rose becomes the Rosa Mystica and is associated with the Virgin Mary.

So, it would certainly appear that Britney Spears was attempting to escape the underworld (her conservatorship) as Hecate, even wearing a garland of roses in her hair for this purpose, and sharing her body with her fans and followers on Instagram as the sacred prostitute goddess Ishtar. She has done this in hopes of rising "above the middle of the great world" as Semiramis, the human goddess form of Ishtar.

Thus, she may become the most serious successor to Madonna in the role of "Whore of Babylon." Others like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift (as popular as she is), Beyonce, and others have all fallen by the roadside. In the space of three years she eclipsed almost everything Madonna ever achieved. In the next three years, Britney Spears could actually become what Madonna aspired to be for nearly 40 years.

In my opinion she was making all the right moves, even down to that garland of Hecate (have no doubts that she may well be "the Lady of Garland"). She even latched on to a man, Sam Asghari, who could have been transformed into the sacrificial god, the Sumerian Tammuz. His Egyptian counterpart was Osiris. One more reason she may have worn the garland of Hecate, so that she could symbolically descend into Hades to attain even greater power.

The goddess Ishtar allowed her consort to be killed as a sacrifice to take her place in the underworld. In one tale, out of remorse following a period of great mourning, she has the sister of Tammuz spend six months of each year in Hades, allowing Tammuz to return to life and reign with her the other six months. Thus, if only for six months a year, Tammuz has been resurrected.

Ishtar was moody, changing rapidly from love to enmity. She protected her favorites, but brought doom upon those who dishonored her, sometimes with terrible consequences for whole nations. 

Note how Britney has been rewarding and heaping thanks on those who have supported her during the 13 years of conservatorship and helping her seek freedom, and yet is periodically set to wreak a terrible revenge against members of her family who she blames for those lost years, especially father Jamie, but  also all those she feels have not supported her (even in some cases people who HAVE supported her). This moodiness that Britney exhibits, time again, is likely manic-depression. Her highs are giddy and fantastic, her lows at worst are destructive and self-destructive ... it is her fits of depression that got her into trouble and conservatorship to begin with.

The mortal Ishtar, Semiramis, was married to the Babylonian king, Nimrod. She had an adulterous affair while married to Nimrod and during that time Nimrod died violently. Afterwards she gave birth to a son, Tammuz. To avoid being discovered as an adulteress, she made the claim that Nimrod had become the sun god after his death and had miraculously impregnated her with the sun's rays. She then declared that Tammuz was Nimrod reincarnated. 

Gratefully, we can see no connection between Britney and Semiramis on that count at least.

This is the OCCULT version of the Ishtar/Tammuz myth, one which has been radically altered. The occult version was created so as to conform with the prophecies of the Whore of Babylon and the beast, both found together in the Book of Revelation. The plan is to fulfill an alternative version of the prophecy where the whore is exalted but later killed by the beast who reigns for a thousand years. It is Man's attempt to subvert prophecy so as to achieve his own ends, but they will fail and God's word will be fulfilled as promised.
