Walter Mercado is an icon. For decades, the Puerto Rican astrologer has spiritually guided our community with his daily horoscope rundowns. Today, while less active on our TV screens, he still sends us “mucho, mucho amor” with youthful tips, public addresses to corrupt politicians and his almost-neighborly ethereal advice. His warm approach to astrology, fabulous capes and early representation of gender nonconformity drew Latin American and Latinx viewers in years ago and continue to make him a star for both generations old and new. But despite his global veneration, he’s not the only Latin American astrologer counseling our community.
Across the region, spiritual guides continue to help viewers on their relationships, careers, dreams, health and losses. Some of them are Mercado’s contemporaries and others were inspired by him, but they are all successful and beloved in their own right. Here, some of the most-esteemed Latin American astrologers looking to the stars to find answers that help us all.

The spiritual guide provides daily horoscopes on YouTube, with each video garnering tens of thousands of views. At 70 years old, he has a massive following of people of all ages worldwide who trust and admire him.
