The Oracle in my Chest: Fall Out Boy’s Folie a Deux Delay Astrological?

With the news that Fall Out Boy‘s Folie a Deux will be postponed, many people are looking for answers. While the guys explained themselves perfectly in a post on their website, the question is still out there:


Well, the answer to this question, my friends, is in the stars. So sit down and talk to da NewAge Amazon’s Psychic Hotline Blog! Your first call is free, but it’ll be $5 a minute next time!

The answer, my friends, lies in the fact that Mercury went retrograde in Libra on September 24th. What does this mean?

In general, Mercury rules thinking and perception, processing and disseminating information and all means of communication, commerce, education and transportation. By extension, Mercury rules people who work in these areas, especially people who work with their minds or their wits: writers and orators, commentators and critics, gossips and spin doctors, teachers, travellers, tricksters and thieves.Mercury retrograde gives rise to personal misunderstandings; flawed, disrupted, or delayed communications, negotiations and trade; glitches and breakdowns with phones, computers, cars, buses, and trains. And all of these problems usually arise because some crucial piece of information, or component, has gone astray or awry.source

And look at what’s happened since then!

And now Folie a Deux‘s delay.

But don’t worry! According to the charts, everything should resolve itself by October 31st. So this may mean we’ll have a release date for Folie. Or a Simpson-Wentz baby.

Why not both?
