In 2019 this Venus gate is especially important for anyone turning a multiple of 8 (16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 72, 80 and 88 between November 1, 2018 and June 8, 2020) because you are in an eight year Venus Return Initiation cycle for the entire 19 month cycle.

The Heart Chakra is linked with the emotional realms including love, kindness, generosity, compassion, and the shadowed aspects of lust, fraud, indecision, anxiety, longing, impartiality, arrogance, incompetence, discrimination and defiance.
