Hormonology uses hundreds of scientific studies to show you how your hormones impact you in virtually every way every day of your monthly cycle. The Hormone Horoscope is a nifty little way of dispensing this information daily. To get started, find the week you’re on in your monthly cycle (you can use this easy guide if you’re not sure), then read your Hormone Horoscope for today!
Which week are you on in your monthly cycle? Find out what it reveals about what your day has in store:
Day 1 (first day of period) to Day 7
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: As your Week 1 and Week 2 go on, you’ll feel more comfortable stepping outside your comfort zone and putting yourself out there–for example, signing up for a singles event or volunteering to lead a big project. Credit goes to rising estrogen, which boosts your confidence, motivation and optimism–a combination that can push you to try something new and make you believe it will end up great, for instance, by padding your pocketbook, leading to a love connection or simply making you happier.
Day 8 to Day 14 or ovulation (here’s how to tell when you’re ovulating)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: If you’ve been meaning to catch up with a friend or family member you haven’t spoken with in awhile, today’s the perfect time to do it. High estrogen in your Week 2 makes you far chattier than any other week of your cycle. Plus, it’s sharpening your wit (making you funnier) and revving your memory (helping you recall great stories and tips to share) so others are happy to hear from you!
Day 15 (or the day after ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may crave solo time today as rising progesterone makes you quieter and less interested in connecting with others than you were in your Week 2. As a result, you may sneak away for a lunch by yourself, go for a leisurely walk alone or enjoy a mellow night at home on your own.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Unlike Week 1 and Week 2 gals, you may find it difficult to step out of your comfort zone today as plunging estrogen makes you more cautious. However, sometimes trying something different even if you don’t feel like it–for example, accepting an invitation to a social event you’d shy away from or volunteering to lead a project in a group you belong to–can result in great opportunities that bring you more wealth, romance or personal happiness.
