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 a vacation, party or other activity coming up, use your Week 1 to plan the details. Rising estrogen is bringing out your fun-loving, adventurous side, plus it's boosting your energy, so you'll enjoy doing research, going shopping, making phone calls and doing all the other errands needed to make the activity a memorable success.

> WEEK TWO: Day 8 to Day 14 or ovulation (how to tell if you're ovulating)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak: During this week of your cycle when hormones are high, you tend to be in a mindset where you want to see actions and responses right away. Which means if someone doesn't return your email or text, doesn't reply to your online post or doesn't do something else the second you want her or him to, you could get a tad impatient.

> 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're probably going to be surprised by how many TV commercials feature food, how many different cooking smells you can detect coming from your neighbors' homes and how many restaurants there are in your area that you're just dying to visit now. Your newfound focus on food comes courtesy of rising progesterone, which makes eating seem like the awesomest thing to do ever. That's because this hormone amplifies your appetite and makes you more sensitive to food cues, which researchers believe is progesterone's way of making sure you're eating enough in case you got pregnant during ovulation. If you're watching your health or your waistline, you can avoid excess fat and calories while still indulging by sticking to healthy (or at least healthier) fare and smaller portion sizes.

> WEEK FOUR: Final 6 days of your cycle (Day 23 to 28 in a 28-day cycle)
Estrogen and progesterone plunge: You're apt to be more on the alert for potential hazards today, for instance, you might worry more about a shopping cart rolling into your car, a stranger walking toward you on the sidewalk or traffic coming too close to where you're biking. That's what happens when estrogen descends: It creates a dip in brain chemicals that regulate mood, which can drag down the confidence you have in your safety.
