Theresa Caputo (June 10, 1967)
This is the story of a girl from Hicksville who makes good in the reality TV world of American mediums. Like Dolly Parton, Theresa Caputo is no dumb blonde. It’s an instantly recognizable look.
Although very popular on her TLC TV program, Caputo has her (unfair) share of critics:
A newspaper review of Caputo’s performances at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury in late 2017 concluded, “For me, this unbelievable experience was simply that: not to be believed. In my humble opinion, Caputo is a damn good performer, and she’s got undeniably likable sass and charisma. I just don’t think she speaks with the dead. Or she didn’t the night that I saw her. But my father probably could have told you that.”Wikipedia
Could it be true that she’s just a good performer?
Before you decide, consider her birth chart…
One of the symbols for an actor or actress is the Neptune/Ascendant conjunction. Here it is in Scorpio. That combination muddies the water as far as I am concerned. It could be the sign of a true medium.
Her Part of Fortune is @ 19° Sagittarius 41′, almost perfectly opposed to her Sun @ 19° Gemini 19′. Hmm.
There is one double inconjunct involving the Sun and the Neptune/Ascendant conjunction.
Sun Inconjunct Neptune
You are very sensitive to your environment and to the people around you. On one level of your being, you feel what is going on very acutely. Unfortunately your understanding often comes in terms that are very difficult to communicate to others, because their meaning is not clear in your own mind. Your greatest danger is in being exposed to negative people who are full of anger or depression or who act very harshly toward you and undermine your self-confidence. Your self-confidence has to be boosted at every conceivable opportunity, and it would be very destructive for you to be criticized sharply, unless the person has made it very clear that he or she loves you.
On the other hand, you can develop into a compassionate and understanding person who instinctively knows what others need and how to serve them. True selfless service to others, giving of yourself voluntarily rather than because you feel there is no choice, will make you feel good, just as the negative behavior described above will make you and everyone else feel bad.
Sun Inconjunct Ascendant
Your relationships with other people can be very intense. While you are young, they may be quite difficult, because you feel that others will accept you only if you deny yourself in some way. Or you may constantly feel you should put off doing what you want in order to do what you have to do. Usually your ideas about what you have to do come from the people around you. Also, contacts with other people will frequently force you to make serious, major psychological changes. Difficulties in your relationships with friends and family are signs of profound internal changes.
You may find that no matter how hard you try to show others who you really are, they misunderstand you somehow. This is because the angular relationship between your rising sign and Sun sign indicates that your internal energies are quite different from the energies that you show to the world, You are not intentionally dishonest with the world, you simply present a confusing complex of energies. As you get older, you will learn more about your effect on people, which will enable you to put the two sides of your personality together so that they work smoothly. Be patient and do not hurry. Look at each relationship as an opportunity to learn more about yourself through your effects upon others. You will know you have learned this when you no longer attract people who are psychologically difficult to deal with.
Now do you think she’s a fraud? I don’t.
