Your trusting, adventuresome spirit is definitely being met with more distrust than usual. Others are not open to faith right now, and may seem more concerned with self-interest, rather than caring about you. Even your desire to cheer others up may be meeting with misunderstanding on their parts.
Therefore, during the Mercury retrograde cycles of 2014, your best bet is to plan spending more time than usual in activities by yourself. Write in your journal, and see if there’s a way to bring more inspiration and enthusiasm into your life. Reflect upon the needs and motivations of others to see if there is a way to give them what they need and still have the feeling of freedom that is so important to you.
