Hormone Horoscope for Wednesday, December 17, 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: You could find yourself procrastinating today, for instance, putting off paying your bills, working on an important project or setting up an appointment. The reason? Rising estrogen is making you feel optimistic, which gives you the false sense that you'll eventually get to these important tasks before they're due.
> 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 have an "A-ha!" moment today where you come up with a new invention, genius solution or creative idea. Credit for your brilliance goes to high estrogen and testosterone, which are making your brain skills peak, they have you thinking faster, they're prompting you to consider a lot of ideas and they're encouraging you to think outside the box!
> WEEK THREE: Begins day after ovulation and lasts 8 days
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again: Rising progesterone is putting you in the mood to be comforted: You prefer homey, rich foods to spicy or diet edibles; you'd rather snuggle under a comfy blanket than trek to the gym; you're in the mood to treat yourself to your favorite desserts because you deserve it; and you're happiest hanging with your best buds and avoiding frenemies like the plague.
> WEEK FOUR: Final 6 days of your cycle (Day 23 to 28 in a 28-day cycle)
Estrogen and progesterone plunge: Pick out your most comfortable outfit today—skip the pants that pinch, the shoes that bind and the bra with that annoying underwire that pokes you in the rib. Plunging estrogen is making you more sensitive to physical pain, so those ouch-inducers will be more irritating than during the other weeks in your cycle.
