Even though there are a variety of Tarot Decks with their variations of Wands, Pentacles, Swords and Cups, the meanings for the cards and their designated Minor Arcana's remains the same. The V of Presents, known as the 5 of Pentacles (Earth) represents adversity and being in a potentially impoverish, or difficult, point in your life. In Tarot, the Five of Pentacles focuses on feelings and beliefs of being out in the cold and struggling with the hard times that lay before you. Yet, it is also a representation of lacking to see what is before you that could also assist you in this time of hardships and worry.
On December 21, 2021, the V of Presents in the upright position advises for you to realize the opportunities that are within your reach as you trudge through your hardships. As you're trudging through, you also need to be aware that you are actually stopping yourself from achieving more than what you are capable of, or believe to be deserving of, since there is a feeling of desperation and only choosing to focus on only the worries that lay before you on your path rather than the opportunities and assistance that lays before you. There is also a feeling of uncertainty and belief that there is no end in sight for those worries but this why you're also advised to dip your feet into the beliefs of optimism. Remember, what you put out into the universe comes back, that is why it is important to be optimistic even during this rough time.
