Which week are you on in your cycle?
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormonescope: Keep your eyes and ears open for new opportunities! Your rising estrogen and testosterone are making you more interested in learning more about 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 13
Today’s hormonescope: There’s a strong chance you’ll meet a new romantic interest today. That’s because cuties are going to naturally want to get close to you thanks to high estrogen, which is making your body pump out lots of come-hither pheromones (scentless attraction chemicals hidden in your sweat). And this high hormone is helping you keep their interest by prompting you to adopt flirtatious behaviors, such as giggling, using higher and lower notes as you speak and wearing more form-fitting clothes that accenutate your curves!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Unlike Week 1 gals, rising progesterone has your thoughts turning inward today. As a result, you may be focusing on how you feel about a certain situation in your life, wondering whether or not you’re taking the right path or if something someone said to you had a hidden meaning.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Just read a Facebook post where my aunt ended up breaking down in tears after watching the Hallmark channel. If you have non-waterproof mascara on today, you may want to skip the Hallmark channel, too, as well as the Lifetime channel, evening news and On-Star commercials (where someone’s life is always saved in a car accident at the last minute by the On-Star staff). Plunging estrogen is making you more prone to crying because it’s bringing down levels of mood-stabilizing serotonin. Now, if you do end up crying, it’s not all bad. Research shows it’s a fast and effective way to release stress and actually improve your mood!
