Hormone Horoscope

Firstly this is NOTHING to do with HOROSCOPES! This is all to do with the biology of being a lady. It will revolutionise your days, weeks and months! Your biology is different every day of your cycle and you can live your life in sync with your body and know what is an optimal task for each day of your cycle!

Part of learning to listen to the subtle world of energy involves learning to listen to all the various influences on your senses. Learning to notice the difference between your intuition and your hormones and emotions is an important lesson.

To give you a quick run down I have taken a snippet from the website:

Week 1 Day 1 (first day of period) to Day 7

Estrogen rises Your Hormone Horoscope: During this week of your cycle, estrogen starts out at rock-bottom and begins a steady climb. Once you get past the achy, fatiguing part of your period, this rise in estrogen will be boosting your energy, mood, optimism and brain skills. It also makes you chattier and pushes you to connect with others both socially and romantically.

Week 2 Day 8 to ovulation (which is Day 14 in a 28-day cycle)

Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak Your Hormone Horoscope: Estrogen continues to rise throughout your Week 2, amping up all the positive effects you experienced during your Week 1. So, you’re likely to be more upbeat, optimistic, chattier and confident, plus have a sharper memory, be thinking faster on your feet and pondering romance far more frequently.

(While there are lots of benefits to enjoy about a high level of estrogen, there is one downside to be aware of: It can amp up anxiety, making you prone to stressing out over issues big and small.)

One other hormone that’s key in your Week 2 is testosterone, which rises during the latter part of this week. And when that happens, it tends to make you more impulsive, daring and competitive. It’s also prompting a sharp spike in your libido and makes your orgasms more intense and easier to achieve.

Week 3 Begins the day after ovulation and lasts 8 days (Day 15 to Day 22 in a 28-day cycle)

Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again

Your Hormone Horoscope: The first half of your Week 3 is what I call your “pre-PMS” phase. The symptoms are like a less intense version of premenstrual syndrome (PMS): They may include irritability, fatigue and a down mood. Like PMS, pre-PMS is also caused by plunging estrogen. (While most women are aware that estrogen plunges once in their cycle–in the days before their period–not many realize there are actually two estrogen dips every cycle. See the graph above.) Luckily, by the second half of your Week 3, estrogen rises again, putting a stop to any annoying pre-PMS symptoms you’ve experienced, which helps level out your mood.

Another important hormone in your Week 3 is progesterone. All throughout this week, progesterone rises, which can make you sleepy, quiet, less interested in socializing and more cautious.

Week 4 Final 6 days of your cycle

Estrogen and progesterone plunge Your Hormone Horoscope: As estrogen plunges during this premenstrual week, it can trigger PMS-related symptoms.

But, it’s not all bad news. In fact, this week your libido returns, though technically that’s not due to hormones. Researchers believe it’s because nerve endings down below get stimulated as your body prepares for menstruation.
