Which 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 and testosterone rise

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: During the first half of this week when rising estrogen is still pretty low, you may feel like staying close to home, sticking to favorite foods, TV shows and friends and not experimenting with anything new. However, if this is the second half of your Week 1 (which would be four, five, six or seven days after the start of your period), you’ll notice a definite change of heart as higher levels of estrogen and testosterone make you more social, daring and interested in new experiences.

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You’ll probably be sharing your opinions with others today and even persuading others to adopt your point of view. That’s because high estrogen and testosterone are making your confidence in your beliefs soar. In addition, these hormones are making you chattier and more outgoing, so you’re more comfortable bringing up touchy or controversial subjects with others that you might avoid during other weeks of your cycle.

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then rise again

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You’re the opposite of Week 2 gals. You have little interest in debating hot topics or spending precious energy trying to convince others to adopt your point of view. In fact, I feel a little sorry for you if you come face-to-face with a Week 2 gal (especially one who’s been super-fueled by caffeine) who corners you into a debate. You’ll most likely want to find a gracious exit fast. You can try using a technique one of my neighbors uses on me quite frequently: When she’s done talking about the stuff she wants to talk about and I start to bring up topics I’d like to discuss, all of a sudden she remembers that she left something cooking on the stove and makes a mad dash back into her house. She’s either the world’s most forgetful cook or she has an exit strategy you simply can’t argue with!

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

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may find the passionate fire for a project you were thrilled about a couple of weeks ago has died down as plunging estrogen and testosterone bring down excitement levels. Luckily, there are easy, proven ways to get that passion back and become reinvigorated about your project: think back to what got you started on it in the first place, consider all the ways your project helps you or others, or read articles, watch movies or speak to folks who are already doing what you want to do. Any of these strategies will make your motivation soar!
