Which week are you on in your cycle?
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormonescope: With excitement- and optimism-pumping estrogen and testosterone on the rise, you’ll likely feel that good ideas you come up with today seem even better, and that great ideas you come up with need to be pounced on right away. As a result, you may suddenly find yourself heading off in a totally new direction as you do research, make calls, sign up for classes or take on other steps that turn your great idea into reality.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Careful today! You’re more likely to throw caution to the wind and take more risks with your safety, for instance, by speeding as you drive, running when you should walk or speaking your mind to a professional female boxer. The reason for your derring-do? High testosterone, which amps up your confidence and impulsiveness, and high estrogen, which makes you think everything will turn out alright in the end.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: As rising progesterone brings out your nurturing side, you may be more inclined to donate to your favorite causes, post prayer requests for a friend on your facebook page or do a favor out of the blue for someone who could use a helping hand.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Plunging estrogen puts a damper on your mood, and while that’s not great news, surprising new research shows that negative emotions actually make you better at analzying situations and thinking critically. As a result, you may find it easier to come up with genius solutions to nagging problems, make a compelling argument or see a new side to an issue.
