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: In Week 4 of your cycle, you may have thought someone or something was totally out of your league due to plunging estrogen and testosterone, which sapped confidence and self-worth. Now that estrogen and testosterone are climbing in your Week 1, they’re raising your confidence and self-worth, making you think that whoever or whatever you want really is within reach!
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Take a moment to enjoy the bliss of Week 2. It only comes around once a month, after all. And it’s the one week of your cycle where you’re the most attractive, in the least amount of pain, the smartest, the most energetic and the most likely to experience random and unexpected bouts of euphoria–and it’s all because of high estrogen and testosterone. As these hormones reach their peaks in Week 2, they do everything they can to your body and brain to get you to attract a mate. That these lovely physical and mental side effects can be used for so much more, such as totally killing it at a presentation, learning to climb circus ropes or launching a business, is a definite plus.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then rise again
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Allot more time to do tasks today. During your Week 2, high estrogen and testosterone had you doing everything faster: typing, walking, talking. Today not so much. These pep-boosting hormones are on the downswing and you’re also now contending with a week full of rising progesterone, a slow-you-down hormone if there ever was one (some research shows it’s as sedating as drugs they give you in the hospital!). Anyway, whether you realize it or not, you’ll be a tad slower today, so it’s easier to fall behind. By allowing more time for each to-do, you’ll stay on track and avoid the stress that inevitably comes from feeling like the day is getting away from you.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may notice you have more creative ideas and come up with more out-of-the-box solutions to problems today. Credit goes indirectly to plunging estrogen, which makes it more difficult to focus. And several new studies show a lack of focus can actually be a good thing since it helps you make connections between unrelated ideas, resulting in sudden flashes of insight, and it prevents you from fixating on just one or two solutions, which motivates you to keep thinking up new ones.
