Hormone Horoscope for Thursday, May 28, 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: You may try new ways of doing things, say, using a long-ignored feature on your camera when taking photos or adding an ingredient you normally wouldn't to your lemonade. Credit for your willingness to experiment goes to rising estrogen, which pumps up your mood, creativity and optimism, making you curious about how things will turn out if you did them a little differently.
> WEEK TWO: Day 8 to Day 14 or ovulation (how to tell if you're ovulating)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak: Your competitive streak peaks during your Week 2 as high estrogen and testosterone push you to be top dog. This could mean that you pull out all the stops to cream an opponent in a game, you make serious headway on a project that you're hoping will outdo rivals at work or school or you simply refuse to back down in a heated debate.
> WEEK THREE: Begins day after ovulation and lasts 8 days
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again: Your taste in potential romantic partners changes this week. While a confident, cocky cutie caught your eye in your Week 2 when estrogen was peaking, during your Week 3, a lower level of estrogen along with rising progesterone has you drawn to more sensitive, self-effacing sweeties.
> WEEK FOUR: Final 6 days of your cycle (Day 23 to 28 in a 28-day cycle)
Estrogen and progesterone plunge: You may sense a slight lack of self-assurance today as estrogen plunges, taking confidence-lifting brain chemicals with it. As a result, you may find yourself hunching instead of standing up straight, volunteering to answer questions less often or second-guessing things you’ve said or done. Try not to beat yourself up about it. Instead, think back to successes you can be proud of. Research shows that reminding yourself of past achievements helps give flagging self-confidence a boost.
