***Important Note***

This page is in its pilot phase. I haven't promoted it, except briefly to friends before deleting my Facebook account. I'm letting it gather momentum before I put it out to the world.

What that means, is that if you sign up now, you'll get all kinds of special perks that won't be offered to Patrons later on. These include a 30-minute astrology reading; the first ever Hummingbird Collectible; early drafts of the longer articles I'm working on, including one on the Saturn Return of the World Wide Web, and another on Disengaging the Patriarchy; and an invite to pilot versions of my Neurosculpting(TM) courses. Perhaps other treats as well.

Thank you so much for your interest.

Hello, beautiful souls!

My name is Hummingbird Star. I'm an American spiritual activist, dedicated to furthering the causes of Resistance and Revolution through astrology, art, and all kinds of ideas. I use she/her pronouns. This page is where you can access (and contribute to) my developing body of work.

Right now, I'm an astrologer and an art model, but my background is diverse. My training and education includes politics, eastern mind/body practices, the chakra system, neuroscience and tantra, and my offerings integrate all of these influences and more. My community is for anyone yearning to make positive change in themselves and the world.

We live in tragic and beautiful times. Long-suppressed darkness is bubbling to the surface of our society; yet simultaneously we are witnessing incredible courage and unity as the oppressed raise their voices and "call BS" on ALL the powers that be. Astrologically, the US is completing a 248-year Pluto cycle--that basically means we're in a death-and-rebirth phase like nothing this country has known before. As we navigate these wild waters, we need perspectives that help us make sense of the chaos. We also need each other.

I believe it is our responsibility to bring the darkness out into the Light... to let in both the heartbreak and the joy. So that's the foundation of what this Patreon community is about. We're really all figuring it out together.

Jump in at the lowest tier, Hummingbird Hangouts, to be part of the conversation! Upper tiers are avenues for accessing my intentional art, my creative process (ie my life), and my one-on-one work. I hope the images and explorations here feed your soul and give you motivation for your own mission, whatever that may be. 

For more information: 

Tiers
Hummingbird Hangouts
$3 or more per month 9 patrons
  • Every month, you'll be invited to a two-hour, Patron-only video chatroom (audio option will also be available if you're on the go). I'll start each Hangout off with an overview of the month's astrology, how it has manifested politically and culturally, and how it might be showing up on the personal level. Conversation can go from there. 
  • I'll bring my years of experience as a facilitator and my diverse background knowledge to the discussion, but this is really about all of us -- exploring challenging subjects, practicing vulnerability, and learning from each person's lived experience. It will be heart-centered. It will be about rooting into body-wisdom. I hope it will be a space where darkness is honored but not chosen, and where the Light can always be found.
  • Video recordings will be posted here on Patreon after each Hangout!
Hummingbird Expressions
$10 or more per month 3 patrons
  • At this pledge level, you are supporting me in the artwork I am most passionate about, but haven't been able to fully pursue. As a traveling art model, I mainly work with photographers helping them to bring their visions to life -- and while there are plenty of chances for creativity, the projects aren't fully mine. There is a huge potential in modeling for powerful, subversive art, and I see so much unexplored territory. 
  • Hummingbird Expressions is my personal modeling project. Your pledge at this level gives me space to create work that is aligned with my greater mission. You'll get at least one set of badass photos per month, along with an artist's statement. Yes, they'll be uncensored, and there might be some nudes if that fit the imagery I was going for, but these aren't voyeur pics. Some will be light-hearted, some will be humorous, some will be emotional or dark. What they will always be is intentional, and designed to evoke self-awareness. 
  • Sets will be around twenty pics each. I might post one or two on Instagram or on my website, but for the most part, these images will be Patreon exclusives.
  • Includes access to Hummingbird Hangouts!
Hummingbird Secrets
$20 or more per month 1 patron
  • This tier is for me to practice being vulnerable - and for you to get a peek into deeper pieces of my life. You'll get something every week. I might post the earliest version of a song I've started writing, or a sharing about a personal experience, or a video clip of me dancing alone, or a cool self-portrait, or an insight I got after a medicine journey. You'll also get a few extra nudes at this level.
  • The Secrets will be short and sweet, but in time they'll compile into a comprehensive picture of my life not visible in the rest of my online presence. Come get to know me... :)
  • Includes access to Hangouts and Expressions
Hummingbird Collectibles
$30 or more per month 0 patrons
  • Collectibles are mailed out once a month, and they could be anything, but I promise they'll be awesome! Your gratitude gift for signing up at this level will be a signed print of the image above with a personalized note. Other possible items include hand-written poems; Activist Astro or Hummingbird Star stickers, pens, buttons, keychains etc; various personalized prints; and random mini-art projects that are calling to me. I wish I could still make my famous mix CDs, but nobody's got a CD player anymore :(
  • Two other cool things about this level: 
  • At  some point I'll start to record my music, and I'll release recordings and even rough drafts to this tier WAY before they're shared with the public. These won't be mailed, but you'll be able to download them and call them yours. 
  • The Collectible for January 2019 will be a Hummingbird Star 12-month calendar! So stick around for that...
  • Includes access to Hangouts, Expressions, and Secrets
Hummingbird Reflections
$50 or more per month 0 patrons
We live in a world full of distractions that pull our attention away from ourselves. Want to flip your gaze? Hummingbird Reflections are monthly reminders to check in with yourself -- and personalized guidance in the process. Here's how it works:


  • When you sign up, you get a one-time, thirty-minute astrology reading over Skype or phone
  • Every month on the new moon, I'll post a message for this tier's subscribers that describes the current astrology and poses a few personal questions for you to ponder
  • You can email me back whenever you're ready, with your answers and any questions of your own. I'll respond to you personally, basing my reflections on what I see in your birthchart and any other intuitive hits that come through
  • You get unlimited email access--ask me anything, anytime as it comes up for you
  • Over time, we'll start to get to know one another, and my reflections will naturally become deeper and more accurate


You'll notice that by making time for this process, you will start to cultivate a new level of self-awareness that stays with you in your daily life.


  • Includes access to Hangouts, Expressions, Secrets, and Collectibles
Hummingbird Deep Dive
$100 or more per month 0 of 5 patrons
  • The Deep Dive includes all of the other rewards, plus a sixty-minute private session with me once a month. My work combines eastern energy practices, Neurosculpting(™), astrology, and a variety of other modalities I've studied over the years. 
  • This is for you if you're ready to cut right to the core of your own conditioning and and ego-driven patterns. I teach you how to ground deep into your body, feel your emotions fully without getting lost in them, and re-wire unwanted neural pathways. I help you shift your perspective on life by choosing new stories that empower you; and - through energy training and working with the physiology of the brain -  I help you make these stories real on the cellular level, which is when things really start to shift. Sessions can be tailored to a specific issue you'd like to focus on, or intended to cultivate general self-awareness and healing.
  • I typically work in series of ten sessions, but you're welcome to subscribe at this level for a month or two and then drop down. The techniques you'll learn can quickly become self-sustaining, even for beginners to meditation and mind/body practice. Feel free to send a private message for more information.
Goals
$76 of $100 per month
When I get to $100, I'll invest in some audio and video gear to improve the quality of the Hangouts (and the recordings.)
