My HormonologyWhich week are you on in your monthly cycle? Find out what it reveals about what your day has in store:

Week 1
Day 1 (first day of period) to Day 7
Estrogen rises

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: It may not happen on Day 1 of your cycle. It may not even happen on Day 2 or Day 3. But, at some point in this first week, rising estrogen is going to make it feel like problems you faced in last couple of weeks are easier to fix. And, good news, this same rising hormone is actually making you more likely to come up with a perfect solution by boosting your mental energy, so you’re brainstorming more ideas and are more willing to try something unconventional if need be.

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You’re likely ready to take action on something today, be it approaching your boss about a new project, making a major life decision or getting back at some jerk who had the misfortune of crossing your path. That’s because you’re fueled by high estrogen and testosterone, hormones that amp up your mental and physical energy, confidence, impulsivity and derring-do–a combination for moving full steam ahead if there ever was one.

Week 3
Day 15 (or the day after ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Intense feelings you had for a person or project during your Week 2 may suddenly fade during your Week 3. Blame goes to rising progesterone coupled with lower levels of estrogen and testosterone–a hormonal combination that puts a damper on passion and excitement.

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: During your premenstrual Week 4, plunging estrogen is making you more prone to dwelling on the negative side of things as it brings down levels of feel-good brain chemicals. But, believe it or not, that’s a good thing! That’s because it forces you to go face to face with a problem you’ve been putting off dealing with–for instance, maybe you’ve been putting off going back to school, switching jobs or evicting a problem roommate. With plunging estrogen ratcheting up your frustration with your procrastinating, it can be the push you need to make the move that, while scary, uncomfortable or difficult, will ultimately make your life a whole lot better.
