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: Keep your eyes and ears open for new opportunities: Rising estrogen is making you more interested in investigating the outside world, including listening to the news, reading online posts, surfing the ‘net, networking with colleagues and doing other activities that give you more information. Somewhere in that sea of data may be the lucky break you need to find a better job, get back to school, open your own business or connect with the love of your life!
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: Feelings of all kinds get more intense today as rising estrogen and testosterone ratchet up your emotional thermometer. As a result, you may be tempted to squeal, clap or do a dance of joy when stumbling upon unbelievable sales, fun surprises and good news. Conversely, you may be tempted to scream, curse or wave a fist when irritated by an inconsiderate driver, annoying neighbor or bad news.
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’ll probably find yourself getting lost in daydreams today as rising progesterone slows your thinking and has your brain going on auto-pilot more frequently than in the past two weeks. Luckily, research shows you can still get a lot of work done while daydreaming. That’s because when you let your thoughts wander, your brain connects different ideas together to help you come up with creative solutions to nagging problems.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: As you grapple with plunging estrogen during your premenstrual week, you’re not only craving junk food for your tummy, you’re craving it for your mind, too. As a result, you may read celebrity gossip, watch reality TV shows or engage in other guilty pleasure activities.
