Some of daytime’s biggest soap stars are celebrating birthdays in July. Soap Hub has compiled all the dates, so you can send the actors and actresses you love your very best wishes via Twitter and Instagram. Or, if you like, you could go the old-fashioned route and mail them an actual card.
Soap Stars Celebrating In July
If you are a Cancer (beginning on June 22 – July 22), here are some of your traits. Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac and a water sign symbolized by the Crab (more on that later), ruled by the Moon, the planet of our deepest feelings and instincts, our spiritual nature, and our subconscious mind. This explains why many Cancers are empaths, intuitive, nurturing, and caregivers.
The sign of Cancer is often associated with Mothers. Whether negatively or positively, this sign has a strong connection to their mother. They can be very self-protective, thus the Crab and its tough shell covering. They can walk into a room and feel what everyone is feeling. This can be toxic and exhausting. They spend a good deal of their life looking for that protective covering. Home is very much a sanctuary from the outside world. Their family is very important.
Cancers are known for being passive-aggressive. This is a sign that would truly benefit from getting constructive with their feelings. Expressing themselves to others and talking it out. Otherwise, they hold it in and it festers. Careers that allow creative expression, working with children, security, and healing work best for Crabs.
Fan-favorite and former Taylor Hayes of The Bold and the Beautiful, Hunter Tylo, starts things off on July 3, when she gets to celebrate a milestone birthday. The stunning star is turning 60 years old.
July 4th isn’t just Independence Day, it’s also General Hospital’s Josh Swickard’s natal day. The Harrison Chase actor turns 30 this year.
A bevy of soap stars will be celebrating birthdays in July including Days of our Lives’ Patsy Pease (ex-Kimberly Brady Donovan), who turns 66. DAYS co-star Suzanne Rogers (Maggie Horton Kiriakis) is next, as she turns 79 on July 9. The next day, July 10, GH’s Haley Pullos (Molly Lansing-Davis) turns 24.
Three more DAYS leading ladies are going the cake and candles route this month, too. Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie Williams) turns 79 on July 11 and Lisa Rinna (ex-Billie Reed) turns 59 that same day, while Judi Evans (Bonnie Lockhart Kiriakis) turns 58 the next day on July 12.
On July 13, beloved GH alum and new mom Hayley Erin will be celebrating her special day. The gorgeous gal turns 28. The next day, on July 14, former GH co-star Drew Cheetwood (Milo Giambetti) is turning 39.
The Young and the Restless newly-minted Daytime Emmy-winning star Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair) joins in on the revelry, too. The lovely actress turns 36 on July 15.
Two days later, GH stunner, Cassandra James (Terry Randolph) gets to blow out the birthday candles on July 17.
On July 21, a pair of daytime alums who played Jordan will be going the cake and candles route. Chrishell Stause (ex-Jordan Ridgeway, DAYS) will be celebrating turning 41 while Vinessa Antoine (ex-Jordan Ashford, GH) turns 39.
Camila Banus (Gabi, DAYS) is toasting another year on planet earth, too. She turns 32 on July 22. The actress is leaving her twenties behind and turning 30.
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.
July 24 is a special day for a pair of DAYS soap stars. Vet John Aniston (Victor Kiriakis) reaches a milestone birthday – his 90th. Meanwhile, former castmate Lucas Adams (Tripp Johnson) turns 29.
Also among the soap stars partying the month, specifically on July 25, will The Bold and the Beautiful beauty Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke Logan Forrester), who’s toasting #61 while co-star Henry Joseph Samiri (Douglas Forrester, B&B), turns 9. DAYS’ Linsey Godfrey (Sarah Horton) celebrates the same day, and she’s turning 34.
There’s a trifecta of soap stars’ birthdays on July 27. DAYS’ Eric Martsolf (Brady Black) turns 51, while onscreen half-sister Martha Madison (Belle Black Brady) turns 45. That same day Y&R alum Alyvia Alyn Lin (ex-Faith Newman) turns 15.
The month wraps up with some multiple celebrations. DAYS’ Bryan Dattilo (Lucas Horton) and Y&R’s Cait Fairbanks (Tessa Porter) will both blow out birthday candles on July 29. Dattilo turns 51, and Fairbanks turns 29. The next day, Y&R alum Richard Burgi (ex-Ashland Locke) turns 64.
Meanwhile, two leading men and one former leading lady will be toasting their special day on July 31. Wally Kurth (Justin, DAYS; Ned, GH) is turning 64, while James Read (Clyde, DAYS) is turning 69. B&B alum Susan Flannery turns 83.
July 2022 Overview:
July is the last month until December when Jupiter, the planet of light, wisdom, healing, and prosperity, is direct in Aries, inspiring bold and heroic moves towards the future. July 5 – 19 finds Mercury and Venus spurring us forward while asking questions like where are we going as a tribe? We will face greed and tackle subjects such as why we are betting on prosperity from dying industries. Chiron in retrograde on the 19th will find everyone tending to their insecurities.
The Sun-Pluto opposition on July 20th shines the light on power, corruption, and capitalism. When Mercury and the Sun enter Leo on July 20 and 22, valor will be rewarded. Pluto completes its decades-long global tour under the dark side of Capricorn while joining Saturn, highlighting upheavals regarding culture and curriculum, and collapsing governments as we know them on July 24 before it enters the rejuvenating turn in Aquarius in 2023. Ceres in Leo that same day spotlights human dignity. Time to face and conquer your shadow side!
The last day of the month finds Mars, the planet of action, sexuality, and war, cozying up to Uranus, the planet of breakthroughs and breakdowns, opening the door of karma. Watch the news for something revolutionary in those areas. This is astrology that hasn’t been seen since the days of Alexander the Great (323 B.C.). Overall, our own intuition, relationships to others and ourselves will be on the front burner. Learn to love your imperfections.
