Astrology for Revolutionaries is an astro-political education that will transform your relationship to our dire historical moment—and to your unique role in it. Based on five+ years of research and thorough archetypal, mythological and historical analysis, this course offers an integrated take on the astrology of our times that you won't find anywhere else. AFR will help you upgrade your personal astrology practice while also giving you a foundation of knowledge that grounds you in the political.
Original course content:
3 live lectures
2 live Q&As
Opening & closing ceremony materials
go-at-your-own-pace workbook with educational videos
optional group Signal thread for sharing, conversation and co-regulation practice
optional cumulative quiz and "certification"
grandfathered access to this course when I release the recorded version (fall 2024)
AFR is a combination of education, personal work and community conversation that will revolutionize your relationship to astrology, and maybe to the world at large.
It's not Astrology 101, but it's not complex, advanced astrology either. It's about astrology as living, breathing praxis; astrology as truth-telling; astrology as a behind-the-scenes look at the cosmic screenplay in which all humans have roles.
To me, revolutionary thought, action and culture means that which bridges the spiritual and the political. If you're hungry for a new paradigm that acknowledges humanity's power and potential but doesn't gaslight about the horrors in our history, present and likely future... this space is for you.

Who is this program for?
Primarily, AFR is for anyone who wants to deepen their own astrological practice. You don’t have to know much about your own chart or astrology in general to benefit from the course, but you do have to want to learn. AFR is also for folks who understand that no personal growth or evolution can happen without facing the political, cultural and climate crises encircling humanity today, and the history that got us here.
A little more specifically, I feel that folks who guide others through an astrological lens could really be supported by the framework AFR offers. If you’re a newer astrologer, or a coach, healer or other service provider who incorporates astrology, this course will give you a foundation from which to understand both the multi-dimensional natal chart, and the complex archetypal story being told by the outer planets in the sky right now. You’ll come away with new confidence as a reader and new integrity as a guide.
Who is this program not for?
AFR is not for you if you haven’t engaged some level of self-interrogation around race, sex, gender, capitalism, colonialism, and the myth of American/western eternal dominance. It's not for astrology skeptics. It's not for anyone looking for hand-holding in researching their chart (though I can definitely support you in the Q&As and in your private reading). It may also not be for folks who are feeling neurochemically unstable, because while I hold a grounded, trauma-sensitive space, the heaviness of the material is unavoidable, and sometimes overwhelm hits. Trust your heart and gut on whether you need to be concerned about this.
What is the refund policy?
A pro-rated refund will be available after the first and second lectures to anyone for whom AFR turns out not to be a good match. No refunds will be offered after the third lecture.
How long will the content be available after the course?
Each call will be held on Zoom and sent to you as a download link. You will have about three months to download your own copy of each recording.
Is this a safe space for folks with marginalized identities?
As a cis white woman, it might be impossible for me to promise that completely. I am still early in my development as this type of a facilitator and I will make mistakes. You can count on me to be receptive to feedback. You can also count on me to call out any kind of veiled bigotry coming from someone of a dominant identity.
What is a Signal thread?
Signal is a free encrypted messaging app. I'll put together a group chat for anyone who wants to be included.
AFR supported me in such a heavy period of my life, it provided me with a community and framework to tackle the challenges to come and it kept me grounded. It taught me the true importance of embodiment & how to work with the energies around me to improve myself and thereby improve my service to the universe. Hummingbird is so thorough in her research - politically, socially, & astrologically. I left the course feeling more prepared and stronger than ever.
~A. M., class of 2021
AFR was a beautiful experience for me! It gave me so much insight and perspective, both about this time in human history and my own place within it. I enjoyed my classmates immensely, and I can't say enough good things about Hummingbird. She is creative, humanistic and real. She wasn't afraid to be vulnerable along the journey, but her intuition never failed to take us exactly where we needed to go. Hummingbird is a gifted teacher, able to work with students at various levels. I never felt left behind, although some of the work with the charts was over my head. If you feel called to this program, you're in for a wild, wonderful ride!
~C. L., class of 2020
Hummingbird is a very intelligent, compassionate, and skilled astrologer and facilitator. Her insights, guidance, and presence helped me to remain centered and focused while exploring some really intense topics. I was able to remain engaged and not sink into despair or resort to denial. I left this container feeling more aligned with my role in the revolution and clear on my intentions for moving forward. That is exactly what I had hoped for!
~E. V., class of 2021
Wow, this course was loaded with opportunity for introspection and self-discovery!! There were so many informative/fun aspects to the course, and it was so thorough and validating. You can easily feel Hummimgbird’s love and passion as well as her desire to make everyone feel heard and seen. She created a very thoughtful and attentive container. I felt a call to take her course and by doing so, I had big awakenings/shifts, so so glad I stepped outside my comfort zone and took it!
~A. M., class of 2020
AFR supported my expansion of mindfulness. I am mentally stronger, as in more fortified and flexible. More focused. More aware. I told so many people in my life about it! I recommend this course for people seeking to understand and positively work with the upcoming astrological energies within their personal and collective lives.
