Soap Stars Celebrating In February
If you are an Aquarius (January 20 – February 18), here are a few of your traits. Aquarius is the 11th sign in the zodiac and the last of the air signs. The fact that it is symbolized by The Water Bearer often confuses people, but it is most definitely an air sign through and through. Of all the signs, Aquarians are the most innovative, progressive, rebellious, and humanitarian. They are healers of the mind, body, and spirit.
Aquarians are naturally curious. This fosters a deep inner need to find solutions and answer unanswered questions. They have a need to figure things out. They are natural-born psychotherapists. While water signs ride the wave of their emotions, Aquarians remained detached, which gives them a unique perspective to offer their insight. Social by nature, Aquarians make great friends, collaborators, and team members. They are also confident enough to flaunt their quirky, eccentric, and funky side.
Aquarians will always remember their first love. For better or worse, their first love leaves a mark they never quite forget. Friendship is so important to this sign, so anyone they fall in love with will be a friend first and foremost. On the negative side, Aquarians can come across as cold, detached, and aloof. They do not like authority figures and rebel against the norm. They like to shock people. Aquarius is a fixed sign which makes them very stubborn and set in their ways. To maintain their interest, a partner must let them be their quirky self and don’t try to reign them in.
The revelry begins on February 1 as General Hospital alum, Sydney Mikayla (ex-Trina) turns 20 years old. The next day, on February 2, legendary soap star Kim Zimmer (ex-Reva, Guiding Light; ex-Echo, One Life to Live) celebrates her big day. She turns 68.
On February 3, Mark Grossman (Adam Newman, The Young and the Restless) will be blowing out some cake candles. He turns 36.
On February 5, GH’s Risa Dorken (Amy) is celebrating her special day. She’ll be turning 33
A pair of Y&R co-stars will be celebrating next. Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman) turns 49 on February 8, while Sharon Case (Sharon Rosales) turns 52 on February 9. That same day, GH star Tajh Bellow (TJ Ashford) will celebrate as he turns 28.
Next up, it’s party time for two Days of our Lives soap stars. Carson Boatman (Johnny DiMera) toasts #29 on February 10, and Galen Gering, who plays his favorite stepdad, Rafe Hernandez, turns 52 on February 13.
GH’s Michael Easton (Dr. Hamilton Finn) gets into celebration mode on February 15. He’s turning 56.
Next up is a beloved actress as Jess Walton (Jill Abbott, Y&R) toasts her 74th birthday on February 18.
If you are a Pisces (February 19 – March 20), here are a few of your traits. Pisces is the 12th sign, the last on the zodiac, and the last of the water signs. The symbol for the constellation is two fish swimming in opposite directions, representing the constant division between fantasy and reality. As the final sign in the zodiac, Pisces has absorbed all the lessons and emotions of all the signs making it the most empathetic, compassionate, and psychic sign on the astrological wheel. Due to their extreme sensitivity, Pisces can be overwhelmed and paralyzed by their feelings.
Ruled by Neptune, the planet that governs dreams and creativity, Pisces loves to dwell in its boundless imagination. The positive side of this energy creates clairvoyance, great artists, musicians, and creative types. Kind and gentle-natured romantics and caregivers, mystical Pisceans offer deep and spiritual companionship.
On the negative side, delusion and illusion reign supreme. A conflicted Piscean drowning in an ocean of murky emotions can escape into the numbing qualities of addiction, daydreaming, running away from their problems or commitment, willful ignorance, looking at life through rose-colored glasses, and having the reputation of being flaky or shady. Facing their scary emotions or swimming through the waves will help them master the best version of themselves.
On February 19, DAYS’ Stephen Nichols (Steve Johnson), turns 72. Speaking of Nichols, his TV son, Tanner Stine (Joey Johnson), will be partying, too. He turns 28 on February 21.
There are a pair of reasons to celebrate on February 22. GH’s Leslie Charleson (Monica Quartermaine) is turning 78, while The Bold and the Beautiful’s Thorsten Kaye (Ridge Forrester) is turning 57.
Jay Kenneth Johnson (Philip, DAYS) is celebrating on February 24. He turns 46. The next day, his ever-lovely DAYS co-star Leann Hunley (Anna DiMera) has a birthday, too. The actress turns 68 on February 25.
Greg Rikaart, who does double duty as Kevin Fisher on Y&R and Leo Stark on DAYS, has reason to pop the champagne cork, too. He turns 46 on February 26. One day later, DAYS co-star Brandon Beemer (Shawn) turns 43 on February 27.
Finally, the celebrations come to a close on February 29. That’s the day Y&R’s Michael Mealor (Kyle Abbott) turns 31.
