What the stars hold for Cameron and Obama in 2012
Tuesday 03 January 2012
More riots in the summer, Cameron in trouble and Obama re-elected – just three predictions for 2012 from a political astrologer writing for Channel 4 News. Read on for more.
The problem is that the UK is going to hit a crisis point and the first of these will be in the period of 5-8 June until September 2012, as the planets Uranus and Pluto clash with each other and the UK chart faces a critical time in its astrology chart. This is a period of great upheaval in the UK when more riots will occur and education, economics, agriculture and health sectors will be in dire need of new reforms and review.
Perhaps the deputy prime minister didn’t get what he wanted from Father Christmas, or maybe someone else got all the lucky charms in the Christmas pudding.

He warned: “There are no easy years when you are in government, and we have had to show real strength in 2011. The next year will be one that poses many great challenges for everyone in Britain, but I know we must continue to do what’s right for our country.”
He listed some achievements he believed the coalition has made – such as giving a million extra children a “fairer start in life” under the pupil premium funding deal, as well as pushing for the world’s first Green Investment Bank. But Mr Clegg’s overall message was of tough times – and he’s not the only one eyeing 2012 with some concern.
But are they right? Henry Mason, head of research at trends company trendwatching.com, is of the “always look on the bright side” school of thought.
He told Channel 4 News: “While we’re not disputing that stuff is gloomy, the economy is not exactly booming, if you look on a global scale there are hundreds of millions of people if not billions for whom 2012 will be significantly better than 2011 was, and for whom 2011 was better than 2010.
“There are always some people doing well, there are always opportunities, there are always new developments.”

“Big business has not covered itself in glory in the last few years. I think people are slightly fed up with this kind of bland pretence that everything’s perfect,” he said.
And if you are still not convinced, perhaps it’s time to trust in the stars. Unfortunately, political astrologer Demian Allan told Channel 4 News they aren’t looking so cheerful either.
“The UK astrology chart indicates strong marked planetary aspects that suggest that the current recession that we as a country are experiencing will continue into the year 2012 and beyond.
“From an astrological long term view, I can only envisage a recovery of the UK’s financial stability in the year 2015 due to a restructure of ‘new’ industries,” he said.
