On top of providing us with a map through life, Walter Mercado is busy reinventing himself. The 84-year-old spiritual advisor may have gotten his start on Telemundo and radio, but is now a full-fledged Internet star – as evidenced by his latest collaboration.

Mercado was most recently tapped by Milk Studios’ Made Fashion week project for a Fashion Astrology video series, where he looked at what the stars held for several designers showing their collections at Fashion Week. And the best part is that he did them in true Walter fashion – speaking in Spanish as an angelic glow (and other special effects) envelops him.

“A unique, special fashion show begins!” he said in his first video. “It’s Made Fashion Week, no less. I am so honored and proud to be able to present some of my predictions for these very special fashion shows.”
