Which week are you on
in your monthly cycle?
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: As estrogen and testosterone rise this weekend, you’ll probably feel like you are so over last week’s low-hormone slow-down and just want to jump head-first into projects and take on all the to-dos you set aside. Just be careful of overloading your plate too fast and taking on too many tasks at once. There’s a chance that if you get overwhelmed by starting too many projects, you could lose your steam and find yourself back at square one with nothing accomplished.
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: Give yourself a reminder to talk more slowly around the men-folk this weekend. High estrogen and testosterone are making you speak faster than during any other week in your cycle. While other women won’t have a problem with your quick pace, most men—who have fewer language processing centers in their brain—will be left in the dust.
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: Doughnuts, cookies, chocolate, oh my! Is there no diet resolution rising progesterone won’t try to make you break this weekend? Not unless you resolved to up your annual Thin Mint consumption, there isn’t.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: It may be difficult to make a new start this weekend—such as launching a new project, attending a new class or heading to a party where you meet new people—as estrogen and testosterone plunge, bringing down brain chemicals that energize and motivate you. But, making a new start isn’t impossible. Just know that you’ll have less natural oomph, so you’ll have to push yourself to move forward just a bit more than in other weeks of your cycle. However, once you see the results of your efforts—making progress in your task, learning something new or meeting someone interesting—you’ll experience a natural rise in feel-good brain chemicals that make taking the next steps a whole lot easier.
