Soap Stars Celebrate In May
If you are a Taurus (April 20 – May 21), here are some of your traits. Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac and an earth sign, ruled by the planet Venus, the planet of love. Of course, this is contradicted by the fact its symbol is a bull. But Taureans are ruled by their desires, love of food, wealth, creature comforts, nature, and sex. Other positive traits include perseverance, resilience, patience, sensuality, and hard-working.
Though they can have a fiery temper when crossed, they are mostly considered chill and laid back. It takes a lot to cross that line, but when you do, watch out! They are known to want the very best but can be a little stingy when spending money on others. They can pinch pennies in creative ways when it comes to increasing their bank accounts. It can be very difficult for people ruled by this sign to make changes. Other negative traits include overindulgence, laziness, jealousy, and stubbornness.
Now let’s dive into another month as another group of daytime stars celebrate birthdays. Which of your favorites were born in May? Soap Hub has compiled a list of all the dates, so you can send your favorite actors and actresses your best wishes via Twitter and Instagram. Or you could go the old-school route and mail them a card.
Days of our Lives alum Farah (Fath) Galfond (ex-Mimi), kicks off the revelry on May 1. She will be turning 39. On May 3, another DAYS birthday will be fetted. That’s the day Remington Hoffman (Li Shin) turns 35.
There’s a trio of birthdays on May 7. Soap star Michael E. Knight (Martin Grey, General Hospital) turns 64; Peter Reckell (Bo Brady, Days of our Lives) turns 68; and Robin Strasser (ex-Dorian Lord, One Life to Live) turns 78.
A trio of daytime leading men are going the cake and candles route on May 8. GH’s Evan Hofer (Dex Heller) turns 26 and Marc Anthony Samuel turns another year older, while Zach Tinker (ex-Sonny Kiriakis, DAYS; ex-Fen Baldwin, The Young and the Restless) turns 29.
Alley Mills, who divided her time between playing Pam Douglas on The Bold and the Beautiful and Heather Webber on GH, celebrates #72 on May 9. Meanwhile, Y&R alumna Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla Winters) turns 64 on May 10. The next day Jonathan Jackson (ex-Lucky, GH) turns 41.
There’s a quadruple celebration on May 12. Soap stars Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Webber, GH) toasts #46, Vanessa Williams (ex-Valerie, DAYS) turns #60, Beth Maitland (Traci Abbott, Y&R) commemorates #65, and Linda Dano (ex-Vivian, DAYS; ex-Felicia, Another World, ex-Rae, GH) marks milestone #80.
On May 14, former Y&R young one, Noah Alexander Gerry (ex-Charlie), will be celebrating another trip around the son. He is turning 26. A few days later, Scott Reeves (ex-Ryan, Y&R; ex-Steven Lars, GH), turns 57 on May 16.
A big GH villain from the past, Coby Ryan McLaughlin (ex-Shiloh), marks his big day on May 17. GH’s premiere villainess, Constance Towers (ex-Helena Cassadine), will be celebrating a milestone birthday. The actress turns 90 on May 20 and that same day, GH co-star Jophielle Love turns 9 years old.
If you are a Gemini (beginning on May 21 – June 21), here are some of your traits. Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac and an air sign, ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication. This explains why many Geminis are writers, actors, and politicians. They are a master of expressing ideas while adding their own witty twist! They are like bees in the idea world flying from subject to subject ingesting what they can before searching for more.
They can be quick-tempered and may consider some arguments flirtation but the anger fades as quickly as it sparks. They are also known to be hot or cold. They grow bored rather quickly. They are always on the lookout for the next best thing. Friends, partners, and co-workers need to keep up with their inquiring minds and know how to keep things fresh so the Gemini doesn’t leave them behind. Life with a Gemini is an adventure as you follow their muse but all is done with a sense of fun.
Next up are a pair of GH soap stars. Kelly Monaco (Sam McCall) turns 47 on May 23. On May 25, Hillary B. Smith (ex-Nora, GH/OLTL; ex-Margo, As the World Turns) celebrates birthday #66, while Genie Francis (Laura Collins) turns 61 on May 26.
It’s balloons and party time for B&B’s Darin Brooks (Wyatt Spencer), too. He turns 39 on May 27. The following day, May 28, DAYS’ Emily O’Brien (Gwen Rizczech) turns 38.
The festivities come to a close on May 29, the natal day for a trio of daytime favorites. Former GH/OLTL sweetie Kristen Alderson celebrates #32, DAYS’ Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera) turns 38, and Y&R’s Tracey Bregman (Lauren Fenmore Baldwin) turns 60.
May 2023 Astrological Overview:
The beginning of May finds the world deep in eclipse energy. A highly transformative time often heralding a shift coming into our lives. The veil between our world and the spirit world is thin and many spirits choose to leave during this time. Mercury and Pluto will be in retrograde for most of the month signifying a time to go within, slow down, process your emotions, finish up projects that have been stagnate, and pay attention to details.
On May 5th, we will experience a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio. Look for intense emotions to crop up, deep thoughts coming from our subconscious, and heightened intuition. Key themes will be clear, release, closure, resolution, and transformation. May 9th brings Sun Conjunct Uranus. You may experience flashes of brilliance, new ideas, or a sudden need for change. And Mercury turns direct on May 14th. Halleluiah!
Jupiter will square Pluto from May 14th – 21st, which will bring tension and a rise to meet challenges. You may feel a sense of powerlessness. A good opportunity to face the challenge and seek inspiration to take back your power and enhance your self-worth.
Jupiter shifts out of Aries and moves into Taurus on May 16, which is more grounded. Look for Taurus-themed lessons such as getting your personal finances in order, a move to stabilize the financial industry and agriculture, your personal self-worth, and taking care of yourself. Since Jupiter is the planet of expansion look for growth in these areas.
A new moon on the 19th will lighten up the heavy eclipse energy. This would be a good time to rest, recharge, set intentions, get organized, and, above all, be grateful. The month of May will be one of the most powerful months of the year, a turning point for many, and a good month to listen to your intuition.
