The word "Bouche" (pronounced like
"Boosh") means "mouth" but it also sounds like the name of Bush.
The last line seems to indicate that Nostradamus is speaking about the the
fate of a particular individual - a person whose face has been anointed with
milk and honey - typically indicating a man who is a king or highly placed
official, who is lying dead or injured on the ground.
means waterspout, which is a tornado on a water. It is possible that this
quatrain is describing two notable events - the occurrence of a huge and
destructive tornado and the assassination or attempted assassination of a leader taking place in close
proximity of time. If not taken literally, the first two lines might
indicate something like an explosion of a
bomb where the smoke spreads like a waterspout. The word "grand
discord" meaning great sound, fits well in both contexts. An explosion
or a tornado, it would obviously tremble
and its consequence would disturb harmony in the world, as the second line
seems to suggest. "Lifting its head to
sky" goes with the "waterspout" and could indicate the rising smoke and fireball
of an explosion or the tornado.
What is almost certain is that Nostradamus
speaks of a highly placed person lying dead or injured on the ground in a pool of
blood. The hint is that he is dead, may be from a bomb explosion. But could the
word "Bouche" actually mean a similar sounding name "Bush" instead of its
actual meaning? The line can be interpreted as "Mouth blood-covered will
float in the blood" or "Bush blood-covered will float in the blood". Does
this quatrain describe a general event or an event with a specific name? Is
Nostradamus using a dual-meaning word to describe the specific name as well
as the event?
Its not unusual for
Nostradamus to use double-meaning words so that the quatrain becomes hard to
interpret until the event happens and actual names are hidden in the guise
of similar sounding words. For example everyone interpreted "Boristhenes
premier" in III.95 as the river Dnieper until Boris Yeltsin became the
President of Russia. The deft use of the words might have indicated the
person and the place at the same stroke. The rest of that quatrain seemed to indicate
the fall of communism and rise of capitalism in Russia quite clearly.
Similarly, in this case too we cannot discount the possibility that Nostradamus actually hints at
a destructive tornado and to the assassination or attempted assassination of President Bush and this
quatrain might indicate a great
danger to the life of the President in the near future.
