I hate to put myself out there and say this, but I said the same thing to my sister a month ago. I said "I've always looked for Orion in the night sky. It just seems like it's in a different place. I'm sure it's my imagination."
Just imagine my surprise at seeing this thread and being associated with this dude!
That's all I've got to say about that!

Well elsewhere online, regarding this, someone disproved Orion moved in relation to the surrounding stars but then found that Polaris was out, after very careful calculations that always work precisely up until very recently, that there was 6 arcminutes difference or basically 1/10th of a degree, which would mean everything including Orion would be out. He is going to double check this again.
So the most that could be out is 1/10th of a degree very recently, and that may just be equipment error.
If it was out 1/10th of a degree, wouldn't that be very insignificant unless something is just beginning to change. If its completed its change, that wouldn't do anything. If that is all 2012 is, well????

Lets play a little devils advocate here. Those of you saying not possible are forgetting something very, very critical. We are still monkeys. We don't know everything. For example, a mechanoid race of alien intelligence might be pulling that cluster of stars away for a reason. Neither you or I can prove or disprove what I just said, and that is what makes it naive to boldly state that something like OP is not possible. Improbable based on our current understanding, but our current understanding changes every week, drastically lately.

Maybe his trailer got moved by the wind, he fell over and banged his head and now Orion has moved
