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
Estrogen and testosterone rise
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: If it’s the first half of your Week 1, use your energy wisely: You may start out feeling as though you have momentum that will carry you through the whole day and into the evening. But, more likely than not, the loss of energizing iron from menstruation coupled with low (though climbing) estrogen and testosterone are going to give you a limited store of pep that peters out by mid to late afternoon. If it’s the second half of your Week 1, you’ll feel a surge of energy that’s longer-lasting. It may even be a little too much, triggering a racing heart or the jitters till your body gets used to the extra oomph.
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Expect over-the-top emotions today. High estrogen is making you get more easily carried away, resulting in you squealing in delight when you spot a new cupcake shop, laughing so loudly at a joke that the neighbors come running or telling someone “I love you!” when it’s really just a case of like.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then rise again
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Week 3 can be a pretty tricky week mood-wise: If it’s the first half of your Week 3, you may feel cranky and blue due to what I call “pre-PMS”, a phase where estrogen and testosterone dip for the first of two times in your monthly cycle, triggering symptoms similar to regular PMS, only shorter and less intense. (By Week 4, estrogen and testosterone dip for the second time in your cycle, triggering true PMS.) If it’s the second half of your Week 3, estrogen and testosterone rise along with progesterone, making you feel mellow and calm. Unless you’re sensitive to progesterone, in which case you may feel a bit weepy. But, the irritation should be gone, so that’s something to enjoy.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may end up kicking yourself for not thinking up a great comeback fast enough to someone who ticked you off. But, who can blame you? As estrogen plunges, it fogs up your thinking and dampens your memory, which makes it harder to come up with witty retorts.
