Concealed from the vulgar and made Manifest only unto the wise in 1665 a Great plague ravished the City of London This catastrophe was followed by a great Fire which burned down much of the city In 1666 two of Lily’s A glyphs published in the 1650s depicted These exact events happening on the 25th Of October 1666 he was summoned before Parliament suspected of having started The Great Fire of London the Parliamentary committee made no secret As to why Lily had been summoned they Were highly concerned by his long since Printed book in which he had hinted at The fire and the sickness one of the Hieroglyphs depicted what appeared to be Many bodies wrapped in burial linens the Other displayed a city on a river in Flames Lily denied any wrongdoing and adamantly Asserted that his hieroglyphs merely Depicted what he had interpreted from His astrological observations speaking Before the assembled parliament he Described how he had framed these two Hieroglyphics after having found that The City of London should be sadly Afflicted with a Great Plague and not Long after with an exorbitant fire now Years later his predictions had been Proved very true as to the cause of the Fire far from being his doing Lily Stated that he had taken much pains

Searching for the cause he concluded he Explained that it had been the finger of God the Great Plague too was regarded as A natural disaster we now know it have Been an instance of bubonic plague which Is estimated to have taken the lives of Over 100,000 people such a high Mortality rate can be said to be Illustrated by Lily’s prediction the Image of which shows workers digging Many graves to keep up with demand Lily defended himself eloquently in Parliament and was acquitted of the Charges despite having denied predicting A date for these catastrophes some Belief that Lily’s prophecies were even More precise than first appears it is Said that within his hieroglyphs he Concealed a date for the events yet To happen particularly it is said that In the illustration of the twins hanging Over the fire There are astrological clues as to the Date of these two events as his Arraignment before Parliament made clear Lily had to tread carefully with his Astrology not everyone appreciated his Art the end times as many would have Seen the pestilence and the subsequent Fire at the time for most were better Off unseen Joan of Ashenden was a 14th Century Oxford scholar and astrologer Fascinated by the study of celestial Objects for the purpose of divination he

Wrote a series of academic tracks on the Subject in the late 13th 30s and early 1340s His predictions were written in a highly Academic fashion and it is clear that They were not meant to attract a popular Audience rather they were written to be Discussed amongst his fellow Practitioners through his studies he Interpreted a conjunction of Saturn Mars And Jupiter with a lunar eclipse in 1345 As a sign of impending catastrophe he Claimed that this year would inaugurate A time of chaos conflict and worryingly Great mortality in 1345 reports of a Terrible highly contagious and often Fatal sickness from around the volga River in russia began to circulate That same year the intensity of the Hundred Years War a series of conflicts Between England and France which started Eight years previous increased with Heavy defeats been inflicted on the French seemingly just as the astrologer Had predicted Europe was entering a Period of conflict chaos and great Mortality it was in 1346 that the now Legendary Battle of Crecy inflicted a Disastrous defeat upon French forces by The end of the year as conflict reigned So did disease the sickness from the East had arrived in Europe it was in 1347 that assured UNS prediction started To have their most awful implications

From 1347 to 1352 banach plague Decimated the populace with up to 60% of Europe’s population being annihilated by The disease by the time it emptor way The first symptoms were flu-like fever Headaches and vomiting before too long Swollen and painful nodes formed on the Skin often death would soon follow Unable to keep up with a mortality rate Mass graves were commonly used a Contemporary Florentine chronicler Described how citizens did little else Except to carry dead bodies to be buried Those who succumbed to the illness were Bundled up quickly and thrown into deep Pits rather disturbingly The chronicler described the process of Layering bodies and earth as being Similar to how one makes lasagna with Layers of pasta and cheese by the time Of its conclusion the great pestilence Was one of the most devastating plagues In human history and would be forever Remembered as the Black Death In the midst of the plague in 1349 Ashenden wrote another tract which Described how the pestilence would soon Start to subside dry celestial forces The astrologer claimed would counter the Cold wet influences of the disease oddly He was proven right with the sickness Beginning to subside in the 1350s Ashenden x’ predictions Although eerie can be ascribed to

Can even be corroborated by the Egyptians themselves the ipuwer papyrus Written sometime in the second Millennium BC speaks of a time of great Chaos in Egypt some scholars identify Certain passages as being very similar To the Bible’s Exodus One such passage in the papyrus stated That the river is blood which is Arguably similar to the Bible’s Description of how all the waters that Were in the river will turn to blood the Ancient source also stated that he who Puts his brother in the ground is Everywhere telling of how many men Succumbed to the Great Plague once again This has been argued to be similar to The biblical pestilence in Exodus it is Said that God commanded that every Firstborn son in Egypt will die Both the papyrus and the Bible described The sickness as swift and deadly just as Moses supposedly foretold due to the Descriptive similarities between the Papyrus and Exodus the debates continues As to whether or not the biblical Plagues were real events documented in Both sources some have identified Differences between the two yet for Every argument there is a counter making This one of the most hotly debated Issues in biblical scholarship whatever The truth may be regarding Exodus According to the papyrus a great

Pestilence did afflict Egypt a Pestilence which may very well have been Foreseen by a real-life Moses figure 19:18 was a harrowing year the Great War Was at an end but for many the suffering Was only just beginning this year a Great sickness would show mankind that Despite its greatest efforts to destroy Itself Nature would always do it better Spanish Influenza swept across the world and Eliminated as many as 100 million people It would take both the global Wars of The 20th century combined to match such A number at the beginning of the century The possibility of such troubles were Far from people’s minds in fact the Great progress of the 19th century Seemed to herald the coming of a golden Age La Figaro a prominent French Newspaper captured the gleeful zeitgeist When it exclaimed in the year 1900 how Fortunate we are to be living on this First day of the 20th century yet in That same year a far less optimistic Soul published a different sort of Outlook a book titled the predicted Plague detailed many aspects of Astrology which forecast doom for the 20th century referencing an Eastern Prophecy the book claimed that early in The 20th century Great Britain and the Chief cities of Europe will be revisited By the Black Death plague whilst the

Exact nature of the disease which Touched the lives of many in the early 20th century was not the same as the Black Death it was a comparable horrific Plague highly infectious the virus Caused flu symptoms including fever Nausea and diarrhea many of the infected Went on to develop severe pneumonia as The end approached they would turn blue Before suffocating as their lungs filled With a frothy bloody substance whilst it May be easy to dismiss a book which References vague Chinese astrologers as Its source it is difficult to entirely Dismissed the predicted plague after all The book is remarkable for having been Published many years before Spanish flu At a time when utopia seemed within Humanity’s grasp and plagues with Distant misfortunes from a bygone era in 2008 an alleged psychic called Sylvia Browne published a book called end of Days in it she predicted that in around 2020 a severe pneumonia like illness Will spread throughout the globe Attacking the lungs and the bronchial Tubes and resisting all known treatments On the 31st of December 2019 a new Strain of a highly infectious virus was Discovered in China in the new year Cases of the sickness were reported Across the world the disease attacks the Respiratory system and currently there Is no known cure for those who knew of
