WHAT IS THE HORMONE HOROSCOPE?
Imagine you could predict virtually every aspect of your day—your mood, energy, love life, spending habits, sleep quality, food cravings, health and more—based solely on which day you’re on in your monthly menstrual cycle.
You can—with the Hormone Horoscope, a first of its kind horoscope that gives you a forecast of your day based solely on your hormones.
Part of the Hormonology suite of tools, the Hormone Horoscope will change the way you plan your day, week and month ahead.
HOW DOES THE HORMONE HOROSCOPE WORK?
Every day of your menstrual cycle, three key hormones—estrogen, testosterone and progesterone—are rising or falling. Thousands of studies show that, based on their ever-changing levels, these hormones have a different affect on your moods, health and behavior every day.
The Hormone Horoscope gathers up the many results of these hormone studies, then delivers them in a daily, easy-to-read summary that gives you a forecast of virtually every aspect of your day—your mood, energy, love life, spending habits, sleep quality, food cravings, health and more.
For example, you’ll know that….
- On Day 8 of your monthly cycle, you’re more upbeat and energetic and sleep more soundly thanks to rising estrogen. However, you’re also more easily stressed due to the same hormone triggering higher arousal in the brain. So, it’s key to have stress-busters (such as calming chamomile tea) ready to use in case tension rises.
- On Day 20 of your monthly cycle, rising progesterone is sapping your energy and revving your appetite. However, this same hormone also prompts up to 30% greater fat-burn during aerobic exercise—which means working out not only counters hormone-related fatigue and revs your pep (by boosting circulation and triggering the release of feel-good endorphins), it also helps you burn off excess calories.
- On Day 25 of your monthly cycle, plunging estrogen can trigger moodiness and worsen sleep. However, this same estrogen drop also makes you faster at spotting potential dangers, such as a car veering into your path, keeping you safer.
MORE THAN JUST A DAILY FORECAST
The Hormone Horoscope is more than just a new way to forecast your day. It also shows you how to get the most from your hormonal effects so you can make every day of your cycle better.
You’ll learn how to capitalize on hormonal benefits. For example, you’ll discover which days of your cycle are best for scheduling job interviews, auditions and first dates because high estrogen will be revving your confidence. And you’ll learn which days of your cycle are perfect for tasks that require lots of mental or physical oomph because hormones will be revving your energy and stamina.
You’ll also be given tips for overcoming hormonal challenges. For example, you’ll find out how to boost energy on cycle days when high progesterone triggers fatigue and dodge irritation on days when plunging estrogen can sap patience.
HOW DO YOU USE THE HORMONE HOROSCOPE?
To use the Hormone Horoscope, simply figure out where you are in your monthly cycle, which is easy: Day 1 starts with the first day of your period and you count from there. (So, if your period began two days ago, it would be Day 2 of your cycle. If your period began three days ago, it would be Day 3 of your cycle. And so on.)
Then, simply read your Hormone Horoscope for the day you’re on in your cycle.
