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: If you’ve got closets, storage spaces, purses and other cluttered areas to organize, now would be a good time to do it. Rising estrogen and testosterone are making you less sentimental about your stuff, so it’s easier to pack them up and ship them off to friends, family or non-profit organizations who can use them more than you.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: If you need to come up with a great idea, for instance, a new way to earn income, a creative design for your bedroom or a killer recipe for a cupcake contest, think about it today. High estrogen and testosterone are speeding up your thought processes, sharpening your recall and making you open to new and experimental ideas—all key traits for the best brainstorming session ever!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: You may find yourself ignoring your phone, not responding to text messages right away or hiding when someone knocks at your door. The reason? Rising progesterone is making you a bit quieter and not as interested in what other folks have to say, which is the complete opposite of how chatty and inquisitive you were during the first two weeks of your cycle.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: You may be a stickler for rules and get frustrated when people flout them, for instance, when drivers change lanes without signalling, shoppers with 11 items go through the 10-items-or-less lane or a neighbor grabs two newspapers out of a newspaper box even though she only paid for one. That’s because plunging estrogen is making you view the world with a more critical eye, so infractions—no matter how small—stand out like glaring felones, making you irritated at the injustice.
