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: As Week 1 goes on, you’ll probably find it easier to shrug off minor irritations, like a nosy coworker, lazy spouse or loud neighbor. Credit for your increased patience goes to rising estrogen, which pumps up your mood more and more as it climbs.
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Here’s the note you need to put up on your bathroom mirror, fridge or anywhere else you’re likely to see it today: “Dear Week 2 Me: Do not make outrageous social plans that fall on my Week 3 or Week 4!” Here’s why: While in Week 2, high estrogen and testosterone are pumping you full of vim and vigor and giving you the deep desire to see every single person you’ve ever known and introduce yourself to new folks with whom you’re sure you could have a major connection. But, in Week 3, lower levels of these hormones combined with sedating progesterone make you lethargic and quiet, so making conversation feels like a chore. And by Week 4, estrogen and testosterone are in full plunge-mode, making you see others’ faults more easily while also conveniently lowering your patience with them.
Day 15 (or the day after ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then rise again
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may get annoyed by overly energetic, easily enthusiastic friends today. While they’re at a 10 on the energy scale, your rising progesterone and lower levels of estrogen and testosterone likely have you hovering around a 5…or lower if you got a lousy night’s sleep and your caffeine infusion hasn’t kicked in yet. Try to have patience with your peppy pals. After all, while in your super-high energy Week 2, you probably annoyed a few Week 3 ladies yourself.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Today can be a harsh day: Estrogen is on the downswing, which can make you more reflective. As a result, you could end up looking back at the week, month, year or phase of your life and think about all the accomplishments you’ve wanted to achieve, but haven’t yet. While it’s easy to get caught up in self-blame and pity, instead try to use Week 4’s tendency to reflect on the past to inspire you to take at least one productive step toward one goal you want to achieve. That way, you’ll avoid negative emotions while moving closer to one of your aims.
