Try not to overreact if a contract is put on hold or some other financial matter hits a road-block. It may be that there was an error in the paperwork or some other hidden factor would have derailed you had the project gone forward as it stood. And while this may temporarily knock the wind out of your sails, should you receive news of a disappointing nature over the coming weeks, the situation could be reversed. That’s the upside of retrograde Mercury: not everything that happens is set in stone. Plus, you may find that a better offer will arise or a more advantageous outcome will be achieved in the wake of an apparent loss or failure.
