The Call of the Wild Syndrome



The brain is a computer triggered by many things including seasons. It all goes to one's programming for experience.

Winter can bring on Seasonal Affective Disorder - also known as winter depression, winter blues, summer depression, summer blues, or seasonal depression. It is was considered a mood disorder in which people who have normal mental health throughout most of the year experience depressive symptoms in the winter or summer.

Nature balance brain chemistry.

Along comes the Spring which triggers another set of symptoms in people who suffer from classic depression including insomnia, anxiety, irritability, decreased appetite, weight loss, social withdrawal, and decreased sex drive. I call their behavior The Call of the Wild Syndrome - a need for freedom that affects many people each year generally when the sun enters Taurus.

The Call of the Wild Syndrome manifests in different ways, most of which involve detachment from things that do not work or make the soul feel confined. It is an intense need for freedom, especially after the nesting months of the fall and winter. The soul needs to be outdoors, just as many animals of the wild. It is an impulsive behavior pattern, which seems to impact on the same people year after year as if instinctual.

This syndrome usually involves souls with issues of commitment, moods swings, and other emotional issues such as depression.

Spring, in general, signals to the soul that new adventures and relationship will happen if they make change - out with the old in with the new. Many people leave relationships, families, jobs, responsibilities, needing to be free in the "jungle of life" at least until the next nesting season (autumn) when they will repeat the pattern once again.
