Find out what it reveals about
what your weekend has in store:
Day 1 (first day of period) to Day 7
Estrogen and testosterone rise
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: You may surprise yourself this weekend by signing up for a class that teaches cake decorating, yoga, floral arranging or another skill you don’t yet have. Why? Rising estrogen and testosterone are making you more impulsive and outgoing while also making learning something new sound like a lot of fun!
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: Your challenge this weekend is to slow down and enjoy all the things you’re doing, such as eating new foods, going on a rollercoaster or kissing someone. With estrogen and testosterone so high, you’re more likely to do fun, exciting activities. But, this hormonal duo is also making you prone to getting so revved up that you skate right through the experience. By trying to be in the moment during your fun, you’ll enjoy it even more!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then rise again
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: You may find it difficult to stick to resolutions to eat healthier, exercise or do other good-for-you habits this weekend. The problem is rising progesterone, which saps your energy, bringing your willpower down with it.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: You may have a shorter fuse this weekend as estrogen plunges, making you more likely to get frustrated at people, your job, cars, even vacuum cleaners. However, how frequently you get irritated and the degree of your irritation is dependent upon several other factors, such as your sensitivity to this hormonal dip, stress, if you exercise or meditate regularly, how healthy your diet is, if you’re getting all your vitamins and minerals and how much caffeine you drink. And these factors can change from month to month, making the emotions in your premenstrual week often seem like a moving target.
