Check out the overview of each phase below to get a better idea of what you and your friends, colleagues and family members may be better at in certain phases.
For example: If a friend asks for advice in her Luteal Phase, I will tread lightly on criticism as her own inner critic is already cranking and this can be a wonderful time to reassess things but not necessarily understand what the next step is just yet.
