"The Prophecies of Madame Mary Ordana for the 2010s" purported to be the predictions of a hitherto unknown Caribbean woman for the coming decade. We received these in late 2009 and published them almost immediately
If nothing else, they were beautifully written, and we'd be amused if some of them actually came true.
The shocking thing is - several of these predictions seem to have actually happened!
And the speed at which her predictions are coming true may indicate that more of them will be coming to fruition as the decade ends!
For example, Stanza 36 seems to accurately predict the 2018 trade war between the US and China - nearly eight years before it happened!
"Stocks in this new year take another wild ride,
As China’s eye for investments begin to roam
A trade war is threatened, and stocks again slide
Before negotiations make their mark and calm the waters
Yet damage is done and millions will lose their homes."
And she often speaks of politics. Could she have been predicting a "Blue Wave" in the 2018 elections An election bringing "great change" is mentioned in Stanza 5:
"Elections bring great change
New leader is well-read.
The opposition wins
After old leader was handed his head."
While the election of Trump did bring "great change," (and his "Make America GREAT Again" seems to actually be spelled out in this wording) the fact that the new leader is "well read" would tend to discount Trump, who doesn't pretend to be a great reader.
And yet, the "old leader" (Trump is 72 in 2018) seems to also refer to Trump, and the "opposition" winning though would mean the Democrats, if this refers to the United States. Stay tuned for the November elections!
Some of her predictions have undeniably come true. Take for instance her specific prediction that 2010 would be a "year of earthquakes," the crash of an Asiana Airlines plane in 2013, and then there's this: Her shocking description (in Stanza 8) of the death of two Hollywood actors - presumably Lauren Becall and Robin Williams:
"Two deaths at once, oh how sorrowful.
Old Hollywood cries.
One still dominated the screen
Another, aged, alone she dies."
Note that the eBook was published January 20, 2010, and these deaths occurred in the summer of 2014.
She also handles the tech revolution of the 2010s in some of her predictions.
"The baby laughs, then cries,
The new car, just bought, flies,
A snake seems to dance
And unsuspecting, we see a budding romance,
New songs are sung,
Badly,but with voices far-flung
Across the globe, and they are seen,
Caught on the tiny screen,
Which becomes entertainment for millions."
