Welcome, and thank you for visiting my Website. My name is Philip Young and I am a professional Spiritual Adviser and Priest of the Order of Melchizedek who uses the gift of guided intuition and tools of astrology and tarot to help people along their life journey. If you have arrived here by recommendation or web search or by meeting me at an event and getting one of my cards, then, hopefully, I can be of service to you in some important and profound way.
Your spirituality matters. In our modern age it is easy to lose connection with this important quality of human existence, that is, until we find ourselves in a spiritual crisis. Of course you do not have to be in crisis to seek out a Spiritual Adviser; and, in fact, it is much better if you can access one regularly as a way to keep centered while moving along through your life development. We can work in direct consultation or use Astrology and Tarot, which are phenomenal tools that can help you wrestle with difficult situations, significant life changes, deeper inner self-knowledge, and your relationships with others and the world around you.
When working with Astrology, I see the birth chart as part of a long soul evolution in continual development. For this reason I often talk about past life development and current life goals. Your existence is part of an ongoing spiritually evolving process. With Tarot I am a narrative guide. The tarot cards, individually and in spreads (of two or more cards), provide a narrative that we hold up to the story of our life. By comparing the two, you can make critical judgments to help you make better, more effective decisions. Both tools are designed to help you make consciously good choices.
Stylistically, I am very direct, but careful of client feelings. I have an Aries Sun and Scorpio Rising, so I tend to dive right in (Aries) and go deep (Scorpio). My Libra Moon provides me with compassionate sensitivity and fairness. So even though I will not mince words, I am kind and thoughtful about the messages I am guided to deliver.
Astrology has many different ways you can get information from your birth. The birth chart is the foundation of all readings, but beyond the birth chart you have progressed charts (soul evolution), transit charts (past, current, and future energy influences), astrocartography charts (location and relocation), synastry charts (relationships), mundane charts (events – wedding date, starting a new business and so on), and horary charts (a question of the moment). Therefore, charts can be cast for specific questions, situations, and relationships. Once we begin our journey together, I will be able to offer you alerts to significant transitions before they begin and tell you how they will apply to the energies of your chart. Since I want to establish an ongoing rapport, much of the maintenance and check up work can be done at a consultation rate (of $30 for every 30 minutes of follow up time). Your spiritual health, like your physical health, benefits from yearly check ups (a birthday chart each year) and awareness of major, cyclical spiritual hurdles ( the progressed Moon phase changes every 2 and 1/2 years, Jupiter returns – every 12 years, Saturn returns – every 29 and 1/2 years, the Pluto and Neptune squares at 36 to 42, the Uranus opposition at 40 to 44, and the Chiron return at 50).
Tarot Readings are very much “in the moment” experiences. If you have questions about the future, Astrology is the better choice since life patterns are cyclical and combinations of energy can be timed. Tarot cards and tarot readings will help you analyze your present situations and think about them in creative and critical ways. Tarot can best answer the following questions about love:
- am I ready for love?
- what kind of relationship is best for me?
- what do I need to know about love?
If you have questions about work, the best tarot questions would be:
- am I doing the right work?
- what work should I be doing?
- how do I feel about my job?

Astrology and Tarot can be used separately or in conjunction to provide you with help. A basic understanding of the function of the two tools can guide you to select the right service for your needs.
