Day 1 (first day of period) to Day 7
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: As another year winds down, you may be thinking of past goals you haven’t yet reached or new goals you want to attain. That’s because rising estrogen boosts motivation, mood and energy, inspiring you to make positive changes.
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: With 2013 quickly coming to a close and high estrogen and testosterone amping up your desire to get a few to-dos to-done, you may finally tackle the projects you meant to fit in during this year (such as organizing your closet or writing a novel)…or at least start them so you can have the satisfaction of knowing you didn’t wait till 2014 to get the ball rolling.
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: With the realization that the end of 2013 is coming soon, you may feel like reading some “2013 in review” articles or thinking back to the events that occurred these past 12 months. The reason for the desire to walk down memory lane is rising progesterone, which makes you a tad reflective and sentimental.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Plunging estrogen is making you more likely to cave in to impulses that make you feel good. As a result, with the end of 2013 looming, you may take this opportunity to eat your way through the junk food aisle, blow a wad of cash and let loose in other ways before you launch plans to diet, save money or rein in yourself in other areas of your life in the new year.
