Which week are you on
in your monthy cycle?
Find out what it reveals about
what your day has in store:
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormonescope: You’ll likely get bored by the same-old same-old routine today as rising estrogen makes you prize fun and novelty over the ordinary. So, try mixing things up by going to a silly place for lunch, sneaking in a shopping trip to a unique boutique or doing anything else that breaks up a hum-drum day and brings a smile to your face.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: You may drive around slow-pokes on the road, beat someone to a cab or slide in front of a rambling shopper to get ahead of her in line. Your need for speed and to be first comes from peaking estrogen and testosterone, which amp up how fast you do things and how fast you want other people to do them, too!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Your credit cards get a breather today. As progesterone rises, it makes you more cautious about spending and more concerned about saving. As a result, you may use more coupons, skip unnecessary indulgences and urge your honey to reel in the spending, too. If you do need to purchase an item, say, a space heater or a new computer to replace one that just imploded, try logging on to cheapism.com, which finds the best quality products that cost the least based on professional and user reviews.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: You may feel unappreciated for all that you do for your family, friends, boss or teacher. It’s quite possible that everyone is showing you the same amount of appreciation they did when you were in the first half of your cycle, however, today’s plunging estrogen is making you more apt to see the world with a critical eye and, therefore, more likely to notice when folks don’t say “thank you” or “good job” instead of when they do.
