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: If it’s the first half of your Week 1, low (though rising) estrogen may having you wanting to stick close to home and spend time with folks you know well. If it’s the second half of your Week 1, estrogen has likely risen to a point where you want to break out of your menstrual hut and paint the town red! (No pun intended.)
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: Louder, faster, harder, spicier, racier. All things you want this weekend as estrogen and testosterone peak, giving you a bigger brain buzz whenever you go over the top!
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: Take time to daydream this weekend. As progesterone rises, it’s putting your brain on automatic pilot more often. By taking advantage of these thought-wandering moments, research shows you could come up with novel solutions to nagging problems or come up with that one “eureka!” idea that could make you a bundle!
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: It may be more difficult to stick to an exercise routine, diet or budget this weekend. The problem is plunging estrogen and testosterone, which reduce your brain’s store of willpower. To boost it back up, try a few brain tricks that have worked on volunteers in recent studies, such as thinking of a pile of money, making a fist or remembering good deeds you’ve done in the past. Strange as it sounds, these all give an instant boost to your willpower, making whatever you want to do easier!
