Year 2012 Predictions
by Author and Feng Shui Master, Lada Ray
Scroll down to the end for the US Presidential Election prediction
and 10/28 update!
First, a quick announcement: I’ve been planning to write:
BOOK OF PREDICTIONS – AFTER 2012
for some time now, but it’s been on hold due to other priority projects. I hope to write and release it this year, depending on my schedule.
What qualifies me to predict the future? In the past decade, I taught a number of my proprietary Feng Shui courses and did lots of consultations, in addition to writing about Feng Shui and spirituality for various publications around the world. As part of my speaking and writing, I made predictions about certain events in society and our lives, as well as advised clients on various real estate and investment-related matters.
My various predictions usually came true. As a quick example, I sold my own real estate property in 2005 – at the top – and advised my clients to do the same. Those, who followed my advice, cashed in very nicely. To find out more about me, check out my bio.
My predictive methodology is complex and consists of several parts.
- As a former financial consultant with Smith Barney (Citigroup,) I understand the market movements.
- Having lived in various countries, under various social systems, including socialism and capitalism, and having observed and studied the geopolitical mechanisms that led to the collapse of the Soviet Union, as well as those in the US, Europe, Asia and Latin America, I understand the driving forces in the world today.
- I also draw on Western Astrology, which, together with other predictive methods, is a great tool.
- Feng Shui, especially the Theory of Five Elements, along with Chinese Astrology, is also helpful.
- An important element in my predictions is the powerful Oriental System of Long Cycles, very little known, and even less understood today. Feng Shui, in its most profound and true manifestation, shares the same philosophy. I studied this system with revered Hong Kong Masters of Feng Shui. Since space in a blog post is limited, I intend to talk more about it in the upcoming BOOK OF PREDICTIONS.
- Last, but not least: While I do not consider myself psychic, although some may beg to differ, in my predictions, I rely heavily on my intuition, which has never let me down.
Without further ado, let’s get to the core of the issue. The Year 2012 is the Year of the Dragon, according to the Chinese system, and it also has been called the Year of Elections. So, what does this year hold in store for us all?
First, something that has been done to death (no pun intended) in books and film: Should we expect the End of the World on 12/21/12?
The short answer is – ABSOLUTELY NOT! The above date, when Earth forms a direct line with the Galactic Center, will be a non-event and will go absolutely unnoticed by most humans. Some may feel more emotional and high strung, but it could be because these people are feeling the nervousness of others around them. However, the world will keep spinning, and life on Earth will go on.
The long answer is more complex. There are very powerful, LONG TERM changes at work. Those of us who are currently involved with, say, Indie Publishing, or Social Media, and some other areas, are actually at the forefront of these changes.
Suffice it to say that humanity is going through a massive transformation of consciousness, which will last for the foreseeable future, and at times, may be painful and confusing.
But these changes are gradual, although some manifestations are visible in cataclysms and events of today. Examples include: Japanese tsunami and Fukushima disaster, Gulf of Mexico oils spill, the Occupy Movement, Egypt Revolution, US/Europe Economic Problems, The BRICS, Kindle and Indie Publishing Revolution and many others.
Please read more about these events and changes in my upcoming books: THE EARTH SHIFTER (a fantasy/thriller) and BOOK OF PREDICTIONS (non-fiction.)

What to expect in the YEAR OF THE DRAGON? How does it differ from the other years of the Chinese Zodiac?
Year of the Dragon is considered one of the most powerful years for business and innovation. It ushers in more Yang – aggressive, assertive – energy, than almost any other year in the 12-year Chinese Zodiac cycle. Therefore, this year we should expect new developments in various revolutionary and alternative technologies. By the way, fellow Indie authors, this could be the year for you!
In general, starting your business is considered especially auspicious during the Year of the Dragon. This year will also be good for anything alternative.
On the other hand, the Year of the Dragon could signify more turmoil in both social and political spheres, as well as in nature. Sorry to say, natural, as well as man-made disasters won’t subside.
Read more about the powerful Dragon in my tomorrow’s post, right here, on Lada Ray Blog!
2012 is called THE YEAR of ELECTIONS, with something like 40 countries going to the polls to elect new Heads of State. This includes the big three: Russia, USA and France.
My friends will tell you that I could talk for hours about geopolitics, but due to the confines of the blog space, I’ll be brief and discuss the big three. Also, just to mention, I am a ‘political atheist’ and do not participate in any political party. My analysis is based on logic, facts, intuition, Chinese Astrology and Theory of Long Cycles.
I will go with plus 2, minus 1.
RUSSIA, Presidential Elections, March 4, 2012: Vladimir Putin will win easily enough, although, due to the crowded field and according to the Russian electoral rules, he may only get clear majority in the second round. Protests on part of the Communists and assorted opposition will continue, and electoral fraud will be alleged again, whether it took place, or not.
However, between now and March, Putin and the ruling United Russia Party will make all the right moves, and Putin will end up securing anywhere between 55 – 68% of the votes. 55% may be way too low. Low to mid 60s is probably the right percentage.
While Russians could afford to play around with the results of the Duma elections in 2011, they’ll treat Presidential Elections much more seriously. Putin means stability, and everyone will remember that. Russian social, economic, political, financial, police and army reforms will continue in a controlled fashion during Putin’s Presidency. I will try to discuss Russia’s future in detail in my BOOK OF PREDICTIONS.
There is one more, esoteric, reason for Putin’s win: He is a DRAGON, according to his Chinese Zodiac sign. 2012 will be much better for Putin, than 2011, as the power of the Dragon is fully behind him this year! 😉
USA, Presidential Elections, November 6, 2012: Republicans will pick Romney, who is perceived as the man of the middle, and therefore, appears a safe bet. And Romney will NOT beat Obama. Because, as one rapper said, speaking at Occupy Wall Street, “Obama is ten times the campaigner, as he is the President.” The rapper, whose name I won’t mention here, added, “And I mean it as a compliment, Mr. President!”
In short, USA will remain sharply divided along partisan lines. Obama will narrowly win another 4-year term.
Meanwhile, various protests will continue and intensify. Emergence of a third party is very possible, fueled with disillusionment with the establishment and election results.
What happens during Obama’s second term is another story altogether, and I’ll discuss it later in my BOOK OF PREDICTIONS, as well.
Ah, yes, in case anyone’s wondering, Barack Obama’s Chinese Zodiac sign is the OX, considered along with the Dragon, one of the most powerful signs. Obama is in good company here, as the Ox is the sign of a world leader and can also be rather charismatic. He shares it, infamously, with Saddam Hussein. But also, with Margaret Thatcher, Princess Diana and Jane Fonda. 😉
France, Presidential Elections, April 22-May 6, 2012: French President Nicolas Sarkozy, together with Angela Merkel of Germany (whose re-election is not until 2013, and I’ll talk about her chances on another occasion) will do everything in their power to reassure the Europeans and the markets in 2012, and will pull a rabbit out of the hat, if necessary. Watch for various announcements from the Eurozone, directed at flooding the system with cheap money, more bailouts, etc.
However, the Eurozone crisis will deepen, with more countries teetering on the brink of collapse, and French elections will happen at the most inopportune time for Sarkozy. Openly right wing and considered the only neo-con, able to win the election, he’s deeply disliked in his country, and will lose.
Again, in case anyone’s wondering, Sarkozy’s sign is the HORSE. Maybe, that’s why the long face. 😉 Just kidding, all you, fabulous Horses, out there! The Horse is a very cool and fortunate sign!
Wishing you a terrific and auspicious Year of the Dragon! Please like and comment to let me know what you think about my predictions!
P.S. On 1/13/12, only two days after I posted my prediction about Sarkozy losing the French elections, S&P downgraded French debt, stripping it of it’s coveted AAA rating. France was downgraded along with 8 other Eurozone countries. This move, as analysts unanimously agree, spells disaster for Sarkozy in the upcoming elections. And it also signals that the Eurozone problems are bound to intensify this year.
Russia and France voted exactly as I originally predicted on 1/11/12, GOP nominated Romney, and there are clearly 3rd parties emerging in the USA. Two Third Party Presidential debates are being hosted by Larry King and aired by RT America (First debate took place several days ago and is available on Youtube; second – foreign policy – debate will air and be posted on Youtube on 10/30).
Upcoming US Presidential Elections: no change from the original 1/11/12 prediction! Obama wins narrowly, with less than 5%, possibly less than 3% advantage.
It is interesting to note that, while in the USA the vote will be very close, abroad it’s not even a contest. Based on multiple surveys and polls from over 20 countries, Romney gets more support only in Pakistan, which is attributed to the Pakistanis’ irritation with deadly drone strikes, not so much to their preference of a specific candidate. Most countries have Romney in single digits, with Western Europe, especially France, favoring Obama by the widest margin.
My prediction: while Obama is far from ideal, no world leader (except, perhaps Israel’s Netanyahu) wants Romney as US President, in fact he scares everyone with his bellicose posturing. Foreign perception is that his angry rhetoric, lack of reason and restraint would make his presidency into Bush 2.0. By the way, this is also perception of much of the international investment community – and international investment community is seldom wrong.
It is naive to think that American elections happen in a vacuum. In our globalized and interconnected world, it should not be underestimated how much influence other countries and global community hold over any country’s policy and elections. In fact, I noticed that global opinion is the most accurate barometer of presidential election results in any country. For example, the international community at large (excluding USA and UK) wanted Putin to win (of course, there was really no contest anyway). In France, both the country and international perception were against Sarkozy, and sure enough – he lost.

Till next time,
Surprise!! Your fame is spreading far and wide!!
Look what I found at The Washington Post:
*********wrote blogger Lada Rey, in all-caps********
A comprehensive guide to the web’s many MH17 conspiracy theories
4. Ukraine shot the plane down to kill Vladimir Putin.
This rumor actually originated with Russia’s state-run Interfax news agency before seeping into the U.S. Per Interfax, Putin’s presidential jet flew the same route as MH17 at almost the same time, and his aircraft was the same size and coloring as the downed plane — leading some to speculate that the crash was an assassination attempt gone very wrong. (“This was a deliberate attempt to shoot down the Russian presidential plane carrying Vladimir Putin one his way from the Latin American visit,” wrote blogger Lada Rey, in all-caps.) But as Russia’s RT, another state-run news outlet, debunked shortly thereafter, Putin’s plane has not flown over Ukraine since the start of conflict there, and he certainly wasn’t flying that flight path Thursday. At the time, Putin was returning to Moscow from Brazil.
THANKS FOR ALL YOUR WORK!! I truly value each of your articles.
Enjoy the Fame!!
She later added this:
“Lada….I just viewed it as simply throwing disinformation to discredit a **genuine Journalist**, one of the few we still have!!!
Just think Lada, you are now in the Mainstream Media.
Take Good Care, Hugs!!”
I want to thank this reader one more time for a nice mention and for thinking of me so highly! It means a lot. I am not using her name in this post as I am not sure whether she would like that.
Many of you may know how I feel about the American MSM. Certainly, I wouldn’t say ‘no’ should someone in the mainstream press or TV ask me to genuinely, truly speak my mind, and not in the derogatory way as is portrayed in this ‘MSM article.’ The more people hear my true message, the better! Of course, they would also have to spell my name correctly, for start. But I think at least one of these would be a real miracle to hope for.
Many of you also know that my opinion and prediction is that the global alternative and citizen media is what really counts today, and will count even more tomorrow. Consider this: to get my name mentioned in that Washington Post piece, someone had to do a google search, where I must have come on top.
To illustrate this, I want to give you a bit of statistics from the FuturisTrendcast blog.
On July 18, after I published my article: Blatant #FalseFlag: #Ukraine Missile Targeted #Putin’s Plane – Hit Malaysia #MH17 Instead!, and when the Washington Post piece came out, I had the following stats:
Total visitors: 5,889
search engines: 1,810
‘What is the real truth’ blog: 413
A bunch of other smaller ones, and near the bottom…
The following day, after I published Post Scriptum: Strange Coincidences? Moscow Metro Tragedy and Malaysian Airliner MH17 Downing, visits and search engine stats are similar, but some top referrers stats go somewhat down, while clicks from washingtonpost.com jump to 163 (delayed reaction, I guess).
Top viewership countries for 7/18: USA (by far), Australia, UK, Netherlands, Malaysia, Canada, Germany, and many more.
Today’s morning top viewership so far: USA, Australia, Canada, Slovakia, UK, Netherlands, Malaysia, Russia, Germany, Japan, S. Africa, France, Romania, Singapore, Poland, etc.
I think this illustrates very well the power of alternative and citizen media in the dissemination of the information.
In conclusion, some important announcements!
1. My interview with The Plane Truth show, which delves into various hidden aspects and powers of the world, will come out in a day or so. Links and video will be posted here, as well as in Interviews. Also check Time Monk Radio YT channel and Lada Ray YouTube channel for more. This interview touches upon my global predictions, and my books, especially THE EARTH SHIFTER, and GOLD TRAIN. We talk about what is the true Feng Shui; the shamanic power animal and soul retrieval practices; Siberian shaman Tengis as the most formidable and fascinating character of The Earth Shifter. We talk about the real Earth Keepers and ETs, as well as what is demons, and other hidden energies. We touch upon the Ray System of Long Cycles, and my predictions based on this system. Don’t miss this fascinating interview!

2. I have received several new awesome reviews for several of my books, including The Earth Shifter,Gold Train and Catharsis (Legend of the Lemurians). Thank you, dear readers! I really appreciate it.
Those interested in understanding my message deeper, as well as enjoying a great read, can purchase my books at Amazon and BN worldwide as very affordable ebooks, and paperbacks. Click on book images on the side bar, or go to Books.
3. Dear readers, the article I promised you all: Is Putin a Part of NWO? will be posted a few days later! In the article I will also talk about what is behind the recent scandal of the Belgian US treasury purchase.
4. A very Special announcement!
I am planning a Special Report that will go much deeper into the phenomenon wrapped in an enigmathat we know as “Vladimir Putin.”
I know there is tremendous interest in solving the Putin riddle worldwide, and believe me – it’s for a very good reason. Let’s just say, I solved this riddle. I will talk about it first in the upcoming article: “Is Putin a Part of NWO?”
However, my Special Report will go substantially deeper and will uncover mysteries of completely different nature.
I will go into history and language mysteries; into striking and profound geopolitical parallels and coincidences; the karmic and mystical depths that few will ever see, or consider. The report will also touch upon prophecies, the issue of the planetary energy, and the destiny and global role of Russia.
This report will be available in three weeks or so, via my new website only. Since I spend a lot of my time and energy (literally and figuratively speaking) sharing my knowledge and information with all for free, this can be your opportunity to contribute and support my work. Therefore, I decided to make this Special Report donation-based.
We are working to make it available for purchase/donation worldwide. In my upcoming interview with The Plane Truth, I give a teaser and a sneak peek into the report that is quite fascinating in itself. As mentioned above, the interview will be available in a day or so.
