LIBRA: May 7-May 13


Over 100 years ago, the cattle industry pressured the U.S. government to kill wolves in Yellowstone National Park. By 1926, wolves had nearly vanished. In the ensuing decades, elk herds grew unnaturally big, not hunted by their natural predator. The elk decimated Yellowstone's berry bushes, eating the wild fruit with such voracity, grizzly bears and other species went hungry. In 1995, environmentalists and conservationists got clearance to re-introduce wolves to the area. Berry bushes are flourishing again. Grizzlies are thriving, as are other deprived mammals. This tale is an allegory for your life in the months ahead. Time to do the equivalent of replenishing a wolf pack. Correct the imbalance.
