Over the years, the TV specials went away and eventually manifested itself into a magazine. Every year, it was an adventure to get a copy because they would only sell it in densely populated Latino areas. As soon as I would buy it, I would flip to the Gemini pages and imagine all the prosperity, good health and fortune the following year would bring me. Yet, it’s 2013 so even Walter has to change with the times.

Now, his magazine is available for download on his website. And I, with other Latinos, still buy it. Whether his predictions ever come true, I’m not exactly sure. What I do know is his predictions are usually optimistic and uplifting and we could all use positivity in our lives. So you can you have your Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and your Frosty the Snowman, I’ll stick with Walter the Positive Psychic. Plus, I know he always offers mucho, pero, mucho amorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Happy Holidays!
