Soap Stars Celebrating In July
If you are a Leo (beginning on July 23 – August 22), here are some of your traits. Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac and is a fire sign symbolized by the Lion. Leos are large and in charge. Loving, creative and theatrical, you will find many performers under the sign of Leo. Ruled by the sun, this sign is lively, fun, generous, and lavish with its affections. Lions are wounded if their generosity or loyalty is not reciprocated.
Leos are natural-born leaders and exude confidence. They despise small-mindedness. Whether it is caring for a magnificent mane or lack thereof, Leos are obsessed with their hair. This sign is well-known for its passionate nature and tenacity in achieving its objectives. Sagittarius, Aries, Aquarius, and Libra are the best matches for this amorous sign.
Negative traits of the Lion are being fixed, rigid, and inflexible at times. They can be vain, haughty, and superficial, often getting caught up in how they are perceived. Lions can be possessive and controlling in love and friendships.
The month kicks off on August 1 with Jennifer Gareis (Donna Logan, The Bold and the Beautiful) toasting her special day. She’s turning 52.
It’s double celebration time over at Days of our Lives soap stars on August 2. Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe Lane) turns 42, while Marci Miller (ex-Abigail Deveraux DiMera) turns 33.
On August 3, look for former General Hospital cutie, Scarlett Fernandez (ex-Charlotte Cassadine) to enter her teen years. The young lady is turning 13 years old.
Soaps newcomer Allison Lanier, who plays Summer Newman Abbott on Young and the Restless, celebrates her natal day on August 4. She will be turning 32 years old. Also celebrating that day is DAYS alum Crystal Chappell (ex-Carly Manning); she turns 57, while another alum from the show, Jen Lilley (ex-Theresa Donovan), turns 38.
Meanwhile, a beloved soap alumna, Erika Slezak (ex-Victoria Lord, One Life to Live), has a birthday, too. She turns 76 on August 5. The next day, beloved soap star Louise Sorel (ex-Vivian Alamain, DAYS) turns 82 on August 6.
On August 7, Y&R alum Sasha Calle (ex-Lola Rosales) celebrates her birthday and turns 27 years old. Two days later, B&B alum Joe LoCicero (ex-Vinnie Walker) turns 36.
Another DAYS star will be blowing out cake candles this month as James Reynolds (Abe Carver) turns 76 on August 10.
GH’s Kathleen Gati (Liesl Obrecht) toasts #65 on August 13. That same day Y&R alum Tyler Johnson (ex-Theo Vanderway) turns 36. The following day, August 14, Jackée Harry (Paulina, DAYS) turns 66.
Over at Y&R, Courtney Hope (Sally Spectra) will be raising a glass of bubbly on August 15. The pretty actress turns 33.
Two daytime actors share August 17 as their natal day. Brock Kelly (Christian “Evan” Maddox, DAYS) turns 37, while Bryton James (Devon Hamilton, Y&R) turns 36.
Y&R’s Sean Dominic (Nate Hastings) will also be partying. His special day is August 18, although the year he was born remains a mystery.
If you are a Virgo (August 22 – September 22), here are some of your traits. Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac and is an earth sign symbolized by the virgin or the maiden of the harvest. As summer turns to fall, we enter the Virgo season. Ruling planet Mercury oversees communication, transportation, curiosity, and research. Virgo is known for their analytical thought, their detail orientated skills, their service to others, and their sensitive heart. A mutable sign, Virgos are flexible and can make adjustments as needed.
A Virgo working on their most positive strengths will be empathic, creative, organized, adaptable, supportive, health-oriented, giving to a fault, great at communication, and a natural lover of language and knowledge. Everyone needs a good Virgo in their corner. In love, Virgos are loyal, devoted, thoughtful, and intuitive. Best matches include a thoughtful Taurus, a sensitive Cancer, a traditional-minded Capricorn, and an evolved Scorpio working on their healer energy.
Negative traits of Virgos are nit-picking, being overly critical of themselves and others, a sharp tongue, overthinking, high anxiety, and over-extending to the point of draining their energy. A negative Virgo could be a negative Nelly, a ball of anxiety, or a nagging shrew. No fun to be around.
The revelry continues on August 25 for two popular leading men. Christian Le Blanc (Michael Baldwin, Y&R) is turning 64, while Cameron Mathison (Drew Cain, GH) turns 53.
It’s cake time for two daytime soap stars on August 27. Kyle Lowder (Rex Brady, DAYS) turns 42, and Karla Mosley (ex-Maya Avant, B&B) turns 41.
Finally, the month comes to an end with a few birthday bashes. First up is Daniel Goddard, remembered as Cane Ashby on Y&R. The actor turns 51 on August 28. That same day, another Y&R alum, Marla Adams (ex-Dina Mergeron), turns 84, while newly-minted Daytime Emmy winner Kelly Thiebaud (Britt Westbourne, GH) celebrates turning 40 years old.
On August 31, Thiebaud’s GH co-star Johnny Wactor (Brando Corbin) blows out the birthday candles as well.
August 2022 Overview:
August is the month where astrology building up since last year comes crashing down or builds to a grand climax. Look for opportunities for transformation or self-realization. Plans coming to fruition or falling apart. It all depends upon where you are on the healing spectrum.
With seven planets in retrograde motion, it may feel like there is something holding us back from being our best selves. Something from our past may rear its ugly head and throw us a curve ball. Stay grounded and pay attention. Work with the energy and see what needs closure.
The full moon on August 11, in Aquarius, shines a light on where we should cut ties. Concentrate on what you want more of and not what you don’t want. Time to be positive!
Another key date will be August 20, when Mars, the planet of action, drive, and ambition, enters Gemini and will resonate through March 2023. Time to see how your words and communication can be a powerful tool both negatively and positively. Choose wisely!
August 22 is when Virgo season begins, and the new moon in Virgo on the 27th signals a perfect time to begin new and healthier routines, create new plans, and create a better work/life balance moving forward. Take care of yourself, so you are energized to help others.
