Bluestar's Prophecy

Like fire, you will blaze through the forest

Prophecy: "Like fire, you will blaze through the forest . . . but beware— even the most powerful of flames can be destroyed by water."[10]
Sign: Burning branch[11]
Interpreter: Goosefeather
Meaning: Bluestar would become leader and bring peace to ThunderClan.[12] Her power is shown greatly, just like fire blazing throughout a forest, like the prophecy foretells it. However, she dies on her last life by drowning in the gorge.[13] It was also a warning that her relationship with Oakheart (beware) would have ruined her chances of becoming leader, and taking Rusty/Firepaw (the most powerful of flames) into ThunderClan, and only avoided this fate by giving up her kits.[blog 1][14]
Reference: Bluestar's Prophecy

A thistle has thorns

Prophecy: "A thistle has thorns as sharp as claws, don't let Whitekit get hurt by them."[15]
Sign: Message from Goosefeather to Bluefur[16]
Interpreters: Goosefeather and Bluefur[16]
Meaning: Bluefur should keep Whitekit away from Thistleclaw, as he is dangerous, and will provide a battle-hungry influence for the little kit. As Bluefur succeeds, Whitestorm becomes a loyal, wise, ThunderClan warrior.[17]
Reference: Bluestar's Prophecy

That kit should have never survived

Prophecy: "I'm sorry, StarClan. That cat should have not survived. This was never meant to happen."[18]
Sign: Message from Goosefeather to StarClan[19]
Interpreters: Goosefeather and Bluefur[19]
Meaning: Tigerkit should have died along with his siblings. He was never meant to survive, as he would do terrible things to the forest later on. This is proved to be true, as Tigerstar brought war to the forest with BloodClan, becoming too ambitious, and almost wiping out the Clans altogether.[18]

Firestar's Quest

Kin of your kin

Prophecy: "There will be three, kin of your kin, who hold the power of the stars in their paws."[20]
Sign: Message from Skywatcher[20]
Interpreter: Firestar[21]
Meaning: This prophecy tells of the arrival of three cats more powerful than any before them, and that they are related to Firestar. They are later revealed to be Jayfeather and Lionblaze, Firestar's grandsons, and Dovewing, Firestar's great-grand-niece.[22] However, this prophecy happens before the birth of the Three, so it takes a while for Firestar to figure out who the Three are.[23]
