Not To Push Or To Push Differently: Mars Retrograde In Scorpio

"mars in scorpio" I was just chatting with a friend, a beautiful poet woman and we were talking a little about the Mars retrograde of 2016 and all her immense writing plans and feeling some relief about this transit as a way to ahhhhhh not to push SO DAMN HARD ALL THE TIME. Give herself a break and I thought to myself:  not to push? Or to push differently?

Are you looking forward to this transit? Have you explored this in your own chart yet? Thoughts?
