Q What can you tell me about the astrologer Holiday Mathis? I read her column regularly.
-Ann Hubrick, The Villages, Fla.
Mathis, 38, a Florida native, worked as a telemarketer and delivered singing telegrams before becoming known as "the Rock & Roll Astrologer" by predicting favorable CD release dates and fortuitous matchups between singers and producers for some of the biggest artists in the business. Her "Horoscopes by Holiday" column appears in more than 300 newspapers worldwide, and she's just released a new book, Rock Your Stars, an astrological guide to everyday living. She also is a songwriter who's written tunes for the TV shows Desperate Housewives, Hanna Montana and Unfabulous, and she's married to Stuart Mathis, a rock guitarist who's toured with Jewel, The Wallflowers, Five for Fighting and LeAnn Rimes.
