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 goes on, you may want to take a more active role in something you believe in, for instance, signing up as a volunteer for someone’s political campaign, joining a non-profit group or participating in a sit-in. Why? As estrogen rises, it makes you more resolute in your beliefs and inspired to take action regarding them. And these feelings grow stronger through the end of your Week 2 as your estrogen level rises higher and higher!
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: High estrogen and testosterone are boosting your confidence and desire to defy conventions–including the ones you set for yourself–so you’ll enjoy breaking out of your usual style routine and changing things up. So, go ahead and don a new hair accessory, experiment with a new kind of makeup or wear that funky outfit you bought months ago and still haven’t taken out for a spin!
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: Research shows that during your Week 3, you’re preferring the company of folks who are sensitive, considerate, soft-spoken and familiar over those who are brash, bold, loud and unfamiliar. That’s due to rising progesterone. As the level of this hormone climbs, it’s slowing you down and making you more caring, quiet and cautious. As a result, you prefer folks who are apt to match your current mood and who are safe to be around.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may find it difficult to make decisions today, waffling from one choice to the next. The problem is that plunging estrogen is bringing down your confidence, making you a bit worried that you’re not picking the option that will make you happiest.
