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’re likely connecting more with others both verbally and physically. That’s because rising estrogen is making you chatty and willing to strike up a conversation with just about anyone. This hormone also has you closing in on other people’s personal spaces, doling out more arm touches, back pats, hugs and kisses!
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: As estrogen and testosterone climb high today, you’re craving excitement in all aspects of your life, for instance, you may flirt with someone who’s a bit of a wild child, drive faster than usual or opt for seeing an action thriller over a romantic comedy!
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 get a serious case of the blahs today. While you were easily excited due to rising estrogen and testosterone in the first two weeks of your cycle, these hormones are now on the downswing. Plus, rising progesterone, a sedating hormone, makes it difficult to muster much enthusiasm. As a result, you may get bored with tasks or find it hard to get interested in a project or conversation.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Try to keep your eyes peeled for opportunities today. Plunging estrogen gives you the tendency to see the negative side of things and adopt a cynical mindset, which could lead you to turn down the chance to meet someone new or do something different. Thing is, research shows that opening yourself to new experiences is one of the top ways people hear about new jobs and lucky breaks!
