When:Thursday, May 1 2014
7:15 pm - 9:30 pm
Please note that this will be our first event at our new location, the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Raleigh (UUFR) at 3313 Wade Avenue, Raleigh. We will be meeting there for the May and June events.
Join us for a fascinating and informative program with Philip Young, PhD.
Astrology, at its core, is about you as an individual, and not about your place as part of a group or category. Beyond exploring core identity, astrology can offer insight into relationships (romantic, familial, business, and friends), events (starting a business, timing a wedding), and where to live or work (astrocartography).
In his talk, Philip Young will give us a glimpse at the immense power of this craft and show us how we can all learn to use it. Based on his new book, Astrology Unlocked, the presentation will show us how to study our own charts and what it takes to unlock the most important information they contain. He’ll also talk about the many different ways astrology can be used in our lives: life mission, past lives, relationships of all kinds, location and relocation, world events (or “mundane”), in-the-moment questions (or “horary”), and more.
Designed as a workbook and learning tool, Philip’s book goes deeper into the interpretation process than most beginner books, offering a strategy that allows readers to enjoy their first foray into the subject. Using the charts of several audience members, Philip will demonstrate his technique for beginning astrologers. If you would like your chart to be considered, send your details (birth date, time, and location) to him no later than Monday, April 28, using his SFF submission form. You’ll receive a printout of your chart at the event.
Part of Philip’s journey involved an academic career, with Masters and Doctorate degrees in English and teaching at the university and college level. The progression toward his calling as an astrologer and tarot reader was prompted by life lessons that include leaving a solid career with UNC to become a stay-at-home father in 2007 and a spiritual crisis from 2009 to 2012. He bought his first tarot deck in 1989 and started reading professionally in 1992; that same year, he began his study of astrology, and started reading charts professionally in 2007. Last July, he launched Black Unykorn Enterprises, LLC, beginning a full-time astrology and tarot career, and he’s been a regular participant in SFF’s annual Psychic & Healing Fair fund raising events. Last December, Astrology Unlocked, designed to address limitations and shortcomings in other astrology books for beginners, was published by Balboa Press.
Philip is passionate about this career and wants to help others learn more about the crafts of astrology and tarot, whether for their own pursuit or to understand better how a professional can aid them in life’s journeys. Learn more about him and his work at www.BlackUnykorn.com.
