Yes, you can believe your horoscope. Read on for true astrology predictions published throughout 2012. Jessica Adams.
What a year. In 2012 America had one of the most chaotic elections on record (the Republicans are still dancing on the Fiscal Cliff with Obama as this is published on 30th December.) There was also a very late royal pregnancy.
So how did astrology see the year just gone?
My astrology predictions appear in three places online. Some are published every week in The Astrologer’s Diary, along with your horoscope. Others appear on Twitter. The third appear at The Astrology Show, right here.
What you are about to read is a selection of predictions, made weeks or months before major news events. And here is an old Astrologer’s Diary post from this website in September 2012, which offers one theory about how astrology might work.
“Astrology works because time is circular not linear. And when calendars and clocks can’t help, astrologers use symbolism and synchronicity to label the moment. This week I am peering at 1930 and 1781 to figure out 2012 for you this week. Between September 17 and 23 a new development in the electric car industry will seriously challenge the future of old, petrol-based transport. The third week of September signals a big leap forward for the trade union movement in the United Kingdom although it won’t feel particularly united. This week is about old-school power versus new freedom. Our time-marker here is Uranus.” August 30, 2012.
The astrology from 1781 ticked over in 2012 and two predictions in that post came true – on 19th and 26th September as a Uranus cycle kicked in.
“The UK needs more ambitious electrical car grant scheme – MPs.” Reuters, September 19th, 2012
“Schools be hit by escalated industrial action by teachers from Wednesday in a row over jobs, pay, pensions and workload amid “deep concerns” among staff over their profession.” The Guardian, 26th September 2012
2012 PREDICTIONS – AUSTRALIA
Way back on 1st January 2012 this year-ahead prediction ran for Libra, which just happens to be the zodiac sign of the Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard.
“WHAT NOT TO DO. Oh heavens. The house, the flat, the family or the flatmate taught you so much about life’s complications last year. Were you power-tripped? Dominated? Or did some issue with the house or flat overwhelm you? Do not let this happen again, as you know better now.”
Some months later a mortgage insurance document, a Melbourne property and an ex-boyfriend would become a serious media problem for the Prime Minister. On the plus side, Libran women (global feminist icons or otherwise) have their biggest and best success cycle in 12 years, starting in August 2013 and extending to the first half of 2014. In their chosen field, or quite another one, women born under Libra could easily achieve something quite remarkable as Jupiter climbs the midheavens of their solar charts.
AMERICA IN 2012 – BARACK OBAMA AND THE ELECTION WITH NO WINNERS
This was the astrology of the US Election, predicted back on 18th September 2012, as seen on this website.
“The results of the American 2012 Election will be disputed. The vote-counting and final declaration will be chaotic. Barack Obama’s horoscope shows patterns which spell one word – surprise. Who will win the 2012 American presidential election? The final verdict will not be final. And Barack Obama’s horoscope shows stress.”
So how did the astrology shape up after it was all over?
“The results of the American 2012 Election will be disputed”
This ran in the LA Times, 5th December 2012 . “You remember Karl Rove: He’s the Republican strategist and Fox News contributor who made television history last month when he refused to accept that President Obama had won the state of Ohio.”
Oh, and Allen West demanded a recount in Florida too…
“The vote-counting will be chaotic”
Even Obama mentioned the long voting lines, in his victory speech. But even more significantly, over 10 million people have now seen this footage of a voting machine on YouTube switching votes.
USA Today reported Florida didn’t finish its vote count until four days after the election.
“The final declaration will be chaotic”
CNN, 20th November 2012 reported ‘WHEN A WIN ISN’T A WIN: House Democratic gains may not equal victory.”
“Barack Obama’s horoscope shows patterns which spell one word – surprise.”
The Discovery Channel reported – “Hurricane Sandy barreled into the East Coast with just a week left before the Presidential election – disrupting campaign plans, national polls, and the media’s intense focus on politics. Because no one can predict exactly when or where hurricanes will strike, Sandy seems like the perfect candidate for this year’s “October Surprise” – the kind of voter-swaying event that often seems to happen right before major elections.”
“The final verdict will not be final”
“TWO MAJOR POLITICAL PARTIES IN AMERICA FOUGHT TO A STANDSTILL.” The New York Times, on 7th November 2012 reported. “After $6 billion, two dozen presidential primary election days, a pair of national conventions, four general election debates, hundreds of Congressional contests and more television advertisements than anyone would ever want to watch, the two major political parties in America essentially fought to a standstill.”
“Barack Obama’s Horoscope Shows Stress”
Benghazi. Susan Rice. Hillary Clinton. General Petraeus. Now, that’s stress. But wait there’s more – Rice, Clinton and Petraeus are all Scorpio. And Saturn, the planet of deep learning experiences, is now in Scorpio for the first time in 29 years.
Here is another US election prediction from 27th October -
“Expect a state of flux about the outcome, around the world, until at least November 27th and possibly as late as December 15th.”
This news story ran on Bloomberg weeks later. “29th November 2012 – Republican David Rouzer conceded the last undecided U.S. House of Representatives race to Democratic incumbent Mike McIntyre.”
THE SHAREMARKET IN 2012 – THE BIG BACKWARD SACK RACE
This was posted back on 24th September 2012 -
“Sharemarket Prediction 2012 – The Big Backward Sack-Race. Between October 18 and December 10, 2012, sharemarket stability is in question because of the position of Saturn and the North Node in Scorpio, the sign which has always ruled finance and business – and because of Mercury Retrograde, also in Scorpio. Using the lessons of history and astrology it is possible to predict financial chaos in October-December 2012. Why? Because what happened in 1929 is similar to 2012. Of course, we know the world is working its way through a global financial crisis, as I write this in September 2012. You don’t have to be an astrologer to know that the planet is in trouble. But what happens in the final quarter of this year bears a strong resemblance to the Wall Street Crash of 1929.”
CNN reported this headline on November 7th: “Stocks Plunge – Dow’s Worst Day of the Year.”
Finally, The Daily Mail reported the biggest fall in stockmarket history on October 19th: “World stock markets plunged today as Google’s value continued to slide the day after it suffered the biggest fall in stock market history. Google suffered the single largest plunge ever yesterday when $24 billion (£15 billion) was wiped off the company’s value after its results were accidentally released.”
MEDIA AND INTERNET PREDICTIONS FROM 2012
Not surprisingly, the media and the internet were all interested in astrology predictions this year – about the media and the internet!
Here’s one, which was published on 7th May at The Astrology Show.
“There will be a revolution and rebellion involving the internet and media on or close to June 24th.”
This story was published on 24th June – News Corp. Mulls Splitting in Two – The Wall Street Journal
A DATE WITH FATE FOR THE MEDIA AND THE INTERNET ON 12.12.12
“BEFORE you leave the office tonight, back up anything important on a USB stick. That’s the advice of astrologist Jessica Adams, who told news.com.au that tomorrow’s date of 12.12.2012, will spell chaos for the internet and media world. “On 12.12.12 the world is feeling the impact of a stressful pattern between Mercury and Neptune, the planet that rules leaks (like Wikileaks) and also flooded computer networks,” said Adams. Just how this disaster and chaos will play out is anyone’s guess, but Adams said it pays to be prepared. However, the reprieve will be short-lived. Adams said the chaos is predicted to return on 21.12.2012. Yep – that’s the same date the Mayan calendar has predicted the end of the world. On 21.12.12 Jupiter in Gemini (which rules the media) is in a critical pattern. That is also the day Anonymous threaten to attack some internet platforms,” said Adams.”
And the outcome?
On both 12.12.12 and 21.12.12 Wikileaks and Julian Assange had big news for the world.
ABC Radio National’s cult program Late Night Live released a scoop on 12.12.12 alerting the world that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange wanted to form a political party to win a seat in the Australian Senate at the next federal election. Then CNN reported on 21.12.12 – “WikiLeaks is preparing to release more than a million documents next year. Julian Assange did not provide details about their contents but said they “affect every country in the world.”
Returning to that news.com.au interview again, there was even more internet chaos than expected on 12.12.12:
Apple Macintosh users experienced malware for the first time in history on 12.12.12 as Digital Trends reported, “If you thought owning a Mac would make you impervious to malware, think again. A Russian security firm is reporting the first threat of this kind to appear on an Apple machine.”
Then, one day after 12.12.12. McAfee warned of massive bank cyberattack threats.
CNN reported, “Security firm McAfee on Thursday released a report warning that a massive cyberattack on 30 U.S. banks has been planned, with the goal of stealing millions of dollars from consumers’ bank accounts.”
THE MAYAN CALENDAR TURNOVER
The Mayan Calendar turned over (ended, ahead of a fresh cycle) on 21.12.12. On the same day, various heavenly bodies formed some highly unusual patterns in the world’s horoscope. This is how the day looked on this website, using astrology.
“Astrologers associate Pluto’s long cycle in Capricorn with the ending/beginning of a new kind of corporate and political world.”
And the outcome? As noted above, 21.12.12 was the day new political party Wikileaks threatened to release over 1 million leaks, affecting every country of the world.
In the astrology forecast about the Mayan Calendar turnover, written on 3rd December, with Jupiter in Gemini, the sign ruling media and the internet, it was worth speculating about the outcome for the BBC in Britain, the Leveson Enquiry, Fox News and Anonymous – and also the proposed United Nations control of the internet.
And would 21.12.12 bring change for mobile phone and ISP companies and the mega-brands Facebook, Apple, Google, Vodafone and in the media, organisations like News International?
Here’s what happened.
On 21st December 2012 as the Mayan calendar ticked over and Jupiter in Gemini timed big media endings and beginnings, the BBC announced the News Corporation break-up had become official, separating newspapers from film and TV.
Then on the same day, ABC News reported that Facebook was pioneering one-dollar charges on its website. World media, and the internet, will not be the same in 2013.
THE ROYAL FAMILY AND THE NOVEMBER ECLIPSE
This post was filed to The Astrology Show back on November 12, 2012
“The Sun is the historic symbol for royalty. In countries without a royal family, like America, it rules the President and his family. At 21 Scorpio 56 the Scorpio eclipse will exactly aspect the horoscopes of the following members of the British royal family including the late Princess Diana. HM The Queen – Ascendant 21 Capricorn 22 Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall – Asteroid Diana 21 Cancer 57 Kate, Duchess of Cambridge – Saturn 21 Libra 49 Prince Harry – Moon 21 Taurus 20 Princess Diana – Asteroid Psyche 21 Cancer 52 (Exactly conjunct Camilla’s Diana position).”
“Eclipses have always been prominent in the lives of the Royal Family. Princess Diana died on one. Prince Charles married both his wives on one. Prince William was born on one. The Moon is a symbol for motherhood in astrology. The Sun is a symbol for fatherhood, and also for royalty. Perhaps it’s not surprising…”
“Eclipses happen all the time. But the November eclipse is a powerful change of direction for the House of Windsor. Scorpio is about births, deaths and marriages. That’s what I believe is in store for the Royal Family in November 2012- February 2013 following the eclipse – unless it unlocks something deeper and darker in royal history.”
The Scorpio eclipse then proceeded to live up to its astrological reputation.
On 3rd December 2012 Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, officially announced her pregnancy.
Tragically, on 7th December, this headline appeared in The Guardian Duchess of Cambridge hoax call nurse found dead.
Then, on 23rd December, The Daily Telegraph reported – “Prince Harry is thought to have killed his first Taliban fighters, as he flew to the rescue of a patrol that had come under attack.”
ASTROLOGICAL PREDICTIONS FOR 2013
In the second part of this special feature on The Astrology Show, on 1st January 2013, I will look at the impact of Neptune and Chiron cycles in Pisces next year, as well as the continuing Pluto in Capricorn transit. Then there is Uranus in Aries, and the arrival of Jupiter in Cancer. 2012 was a dramatic year. So what does astrology’s unique, alternative time pattern reveal about 2013?
