Hormone Horoscope for Friday, December 19, 2014
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: As your Week 1 goes on, you become more likely to go with the flow and accept unexpected changes, such as bad weather impeding your commute or a surprise visitor showing up. Credit goes to rising estrogen, which improves your mood, making you more flexible.
> 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 find people, events and activities more fun, charming or interesting than usual today thanks to high estrogen, which amps up feel-good chemicals in your brain. As a result, you're more likely to dive head-first into an experience, for instance, you may put your hand up at a comedy show when the comedian asks for a volunteer from the audience to come up to the stage, book an exotic vacation after browsing a travel website or say "yes" to going on a date with someone who's usually not your type.
> 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 likely take more time to make decisions than you did during Week 2 of your cycle, for instance, you may weigh the pros and cons of buying a new couch or ponder if it's better to have chicken or fish for dinner. That's because research shows lower levels of estrogen and testosterone combined with rising progesterone makes you less impulsive and more deliberate.
> WEEK FOUR: Final 6 days of your cycle (Day 23 to 28 in a 28-day cycle)
Estrogen and progesterone plunge: You may take extra steps to save money, for instance, by searching for coupons or traveling to a store with cheaper prices. Why? As estrogen plunges in this premenstrual week, you become a bit less secure about your finances, which motivates you to keep more cash in your wallet.
