By The Associated Press

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) ' A flamboyant astrologer and psychic formerly known as Walter Mercado has been hospitalized in Puerto Rico for respiratory problems.

Spokeswoman Rosana Roig said that doctors on Wednesday diagnosed him with pneumonia and that he will undergo more medical tests.

She says that the astrologer was supposed to return to his home in Miami this week after visiting family in Puerto Rico.

The astrologer who now uses the name of Shanti Ananda is famous through much of Latin America for decades of television appearances. He said in a Facebook posting that he caught a cold that turned into bronchitis while celebrating the holidays in the island's southern coast.
