Which week are you on in your monthly cycle? Find out what it reveals about what your weekend has in store:

Week 1
Day 1 (first day of period) to Day 7
Estrogen and testosterone rise
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: Chances are, you’re going to be thinking more about romantic relationships today, for instance, the one you’re currently in, the one you’ve been pursuing or the one you wish you could pursue if you weren’t in the one you’re currently in. The reason for your desire for romance is rising estrogen, which pushes you to make a love connection as it climbs, and rising testosterone, which triggers a surge in your libido, urging you to get physical!

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: You’re more likely to enjoy activities that get you outdoors (such as going to an event at a local park), socializing with others (such as attending a holiday party) or push you a little out of your comfort zone (such as signing up for a glass-blowing class). When rising estrogen and testosterone reach the highs they do in Week 2 of your cycle, they boost brain chemicals that make you want to explore, meet new people and try new things!

Week 3
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’re probably going to notice that you’re making a few mistakes while speaking, can’t think of words you want to say and that you blank out on what you were doing every once in a while. The problem? Rising progesterone (which is a hormone that puts a damper on verbal ability and short-term memory) coupled with lower levels of estrogen and testosterone (hormones needed for mental agility). Luckily, the change in brain skills is usually minor…or at least not completely debilitating. And, good news, you can give your brain skills a temporary boost by simply drinking tea or coffee (the caffeine will help counter progesterone’s mind-numbing effects), eating a little dark chocolate (which is rich in natural compounds that send blood surging to the brain, making you more alert) and/or doing moderate to vigorous exercise, such as going for a brisk walk (which also sends blood surging to your brain).

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: Get the ice packs ready: You’re probably going to be banging your hip into doorways, smashing your head into an open cabinet door or stubbing your toe on a table leg. Blame for the clumsiness goes to plunging estrogen, which reduces your coordination and dexterity as it descends.
