Hormone Horoscope for Tuesday, March 3, 2015
Which week are you on in your monthly cycle? CLICK a week below to read your Hormone Horoscope:
> WEEK ONE: Day 1 (first day of period) to Day 7
Estrogen rises: If you've got long calls to make--say, to an old pal or a family member--the second half of your Week 1 through the end of your Week 2 are the best days to make them. That's because high estrogen is prompting a desire to chat, plus it's making you more eloquent, it's sharpening your memory, it has you thinking faster on your feet and it's bringing out your funny side--all key for entertaining the person on the other side of the call and making them want to hear more.
> WEEK TWO: Day 8 to Day 14 or ovulation (how to tell if you're ovulating)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak: You may be convinced you're totally head-over-heels in love with someone. But, you may just want to hold off a bit before professing your feelings. That's because high estrogen and testosterone could simply be fanning the flames of a temporary crush--and these hormone-fueled affections may wane the moment Week 3 arrives and estrogen and testosterone dip, cooling your passion and possibly making you wonder what you ever saw in that person to begin with.
> WEEK THREE: Begins day after ovulation and lasts 8 days
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again: You'll probably get lost in thought and daydream a bit more frequently today. That's rising progesterone's influence. As the level of this sedating hormone climbs, it slows you down and makes you more introspective, so you're more prone to drifting off and letting your mind wander.
> WEEK FOUR: Final 6 days of your cycle (Day 23 to 28 in a 28-day cycle)
Estrogen and progesterone plunge: You might want to carry a pen and paper or use a note-taking app on your phone today to record ideas you have, items you need to buy or facts you need to remember. A plunge in estrogen can ding your memory and make it easier to get distracted, keeping you from recalling what you need when you need it.
