The whole point of any planet going Retrograde is to bring up the issues of its domain, in Venus' case, values, priorities & resources. It brings these issues to the surface, essentially getting your attention in a way that (hopefully) will prompt you to want to explore more deeply (retrograde) before charting the course of future forward movement (direct/out of shadow) when you will have acquired more clarity and sure-footedness.
Transmissions such as these empower you. They empower you because they validate your innate sense of your true nature, and they illuminate pathways of realizing this, noticing this, remembering this, so you might come forth into fullness in this lifetime, as you intended. Aho!
