Today’s cards: 8 of Swords (reversed), The Emperor – IV (reversed), & 5 of Pentacles (reversed).

Everyone has been telling you to accept your situation with a quiet and stoic repose because it is useless to do anything else. They have been quick to point out just how much agency you are bereft of and how much you are dependent on other people’s good will. And as far as describing your circumstances, they are correct. However, they are telling you this not for your benefit, but for theirs. Because as long as you make yourself into a perfectly compliant victim, then they are not obligated to do anything about it. However, if you do thrash and scream, if you do attempt to do anything about your circumstances, then you will attract the attention of those who can do something about it, much to the dismay of those who benefit from your silence. Since you are going to be stuck there regardless if you are silent or not, why not then cry havoc and let what comes, come.
