Stars in the Stars
Monday – August 20: The Leo Sun in relation to Mars in the partnership sign, Libra it’s a great time to grab a friend or partner to join you on trips, paint a room, or just having some creative fun, it’ll be more fun than going alone.
I’m keeping today’s Stars in the Stars very short – not that there weren’t a lot of famous and/or important people born today, but as I was researching famous and celebrity birthdays I came across a little surprise … some of my very favorite actors from my very favorite shows were born today.
Misha Collins plays “Castiel” on “Supernatural.” (Maybe he’s out celebrating with Jim Beaver who plays “Bobby Singer” on “Supernatural” and who just celebrated a birthday on August 12.)
“Supernatural” is a super great show that I like only second to “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” (I’m a huge Joss Whedon fan!). And speaking of “Buffy” (and Joss) James Marsters played “Spike” in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and its spinoff, “Angel” (third favorite show in my personal lineup), both of which were created by Joss Whedon.
Colin Cunningham is the hot bad-boy, “Pope,” in the hit TV show “Falling Skies” (which was not created by Joss Whedon, but I did say he was hot).
And last, but not least, Ray Wise enjoys a birthday today. Ray played “Howard Lipman” in “Dollhouse” – another great Joss Whedon creation, which unfortunately lasted only one season. The real star of that show was of course Eliza Dushku who played “Faith” the other slayer, first on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and then “Angel.”
Seems the good-guy/bad-buy theme is hot in Leo world this week, at least it is today. As for Joss, he’s a Cancer, like me, born June 23.
