To say that 2020 was a crummy year would be a vast understatement. A pandemic swept the world, millions of Americans lost their jobs, the economy cratered, drug overdoses skyrocket. Oh, and remember those murder hornets swooping into the U.S. from Asia?

But one mystic says 2021 might not be much better. 

Blind Bulgarian mystic Baba Vanga, a supposed clairvoyant, is predicting that the world will suffer from "a lot of cataclysms and great disasters" in 2021. He also said three "giants" will unite and a "strong dragon" seizes humanity – whatever that means.

"Difficult times will come," the mystic is said to have predicted before her own death in 1996 (you gotta' wonder if she predicted that). She also said that "people will be divided by their faith."

"We are witnessing devastating events that will change the fate and destiny of humanity," she said, according to The Daily Mail.

"Some have interpreted the 'dragon' to be China's increasing dominance in the world," said the Mail, referring to the mystic as the "Nostradamus of the Balkans."

But she did have one really wonderful prediction: A cure for cancer, she said, would be found in 2021. "The day will come when cancer will get tied with iron chains," she said.

Baba Vanga "has become a cult figure among conspiracy theorists after some of her pronouncements proved eerily true," said the Mail. Her supposed predictions run until the year 5079 when she believes the world will come to an end. 

"The mystic has also claimed Donald Trump will suffer deafness and mortal illness in 2021 and Vladimir Putin will have to fend off an assassination attempt next year, while Europe is bracing for a chemical attack from Muslim extremists. However, Trump and Putin can draw reassurance from the fact that the last two years' predictions were extremely similar and no such fate has befallen them, even though the US President did have a brush with Covid-19 this year," the Mail wrote.

But interpreters of her so-called predictions read into her words, just as followers of Nostradamus do. For 2001, she proclaimed: "Horror, horror! The American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds. The wolves will be howling in a bush, and innocent blood will be gushing."

Believers claim that Baba foretold the 9/11 attacks, in which four hijacked planes attacked America.

"The claim is vague enough that any number of disasters could be seen to fulfil the prophecy, but the 'accuracy' of her prediction has helped to give her a cult status," said the Mail.
