Soap Stars Celebrating In August

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.

Erika Slezak, remembered for her roles as Viki and Niki on One Life to Live, is celebrating her birthday too. The six-time Daytime Emmy Award winner for Outstanding Lead Actress turns 77 on August 5. The next day, her former OLTL co-star Louise Sorel (ex-Judith Sanders; Vivian Alamain, DAYS) is turning 83.

On August 7, look for Y&R alum Sasha Calle (Lola Rosales) to celebrate. This Supergirl will be turning 28. Two days later, an alum from her sister soap, B&B is marking his special day. Joe LoCicero (ex-Vinny Walker) turns 37.

Beloved daytime vet James Reynolds (Abe Carver, DAYS) will be toasting his special day. The actor turns 77 on August 10.

Kathleen Gati (Liesl Obrecht, GH) gets in on the revelry on August 13. The actress is turning 66. That same day, look for Y&R alum, Tyler Johnson (Theo Vanderway), to mark his big day. He’s turning 37.

Next up on August 14, Jackée Harry (Paulina Price Carver, DAYS) is going the cake and candles route. She’ll be 67.

Next up, Sean Dominic (Nate Hastings, Y&R) commemorates his birthday on August 18. However, the exact year he was born remains a mystery.

Soap Stars: All About Virgos

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. The 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.

It’s celebration time for two daytime leading men on August 25. Christian Le Blanc, who plays Michael Baldwin on Y&R, toasts #65, while Cameron Mathison, who plays Drew Cain on GH, turns 54.

Party streamers will be hung and balloons blown up for Kyle Lowder (Rex Brady, DAYS) on August 27, when he turns 43. It’s the same day that B&B alumna Karla Mosley (ex-Maya Avant) turns 42.

It’s a birthday bash for a trio of soap stars on August 28. Former GH fave, Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt Westbourne) turns 41, Daniel Goddard (ex-Cane Ashby, Y&R) marks 52 trips around the sun, and another Y&R fave, Marla Adams (ex-Dina Mergeron), celebrates milestone #85.

The month wraps up with former GH star Johnny Wactor (Brando Corbin) getting the cake and candle treatment. He’ll be celebrating on August 31, but the year remains mysterious.

August 2023 Overview:

August starts out with a bang as we experience our first full moon of the month on August 1, in the quirky sign of Aquarius, encouraging everyone to embrace your free-thinking side, your own uniqueness, and get rid of things (or people) who no longer serve you. Be brave and jump in!

The following week Venus in Retrograde (July 22 through September 3) squares off with Uranus unexpected changes could rock your world. There will be challenges and plot twists. Stay grounded and don’t be afraid to think out of the box to find answers and resolutions. Take things slow in the face of new relationships at this time.

A new moon in Leo on August 16 teases a dramatic fresh start. If you have conflicting wishes or consistent conflicts and issues, it is time to take the initiative and find a resolution. August 23 is a day to mark on your calendar as we will have five planets in Retrograde, including Mercury, as Virgo season begins. It will be hard to see details with any clarity at this time so have patience. Take a deep breath and just address what is right in front of you.

The month wraps up with passionate Mars entering Libra on August 27, shining a light on relationships and social encounters. The following day, shock artist planet Uranus joins the Retrograde club and forces us to process all the twists and turns our lives have taken over the past few months. Finally, we end the month with a full moon in Pisces and the sun in Virgo, signaling us to stay grounded and practical in the face of our dreams and the churning retrograde. Hang in there and strap your seatbelts on!
