Let's deepen your connection to cacao and grow your ritual practice.

In our November Ritual Forecast, we've highlighted meaningful astrological dates that help you align with the natural cycles of Earth, significant days to celebrate and reflect with cacao, and notable historical events. This offers you a mix of cosmic and grounded cacao rituals.

In addition, we recommend specific cacaos to support your intentions on these special days. 

Each day is an opportunity to go deeper with your ceremony by dedicating more time, planning a more involved ritual, perhaps increasing your cacao dose, or planning ahead for a (virtual) group ritual with friends, loved ones, and the larger community.

How will you make your rituals authentic to you this month?

Let us know! We look forward to hearing from you.

Cacao Ritual - Inspiration & Suggestions

 

Thursday, November 4th| Super New Moon In Scorpio

Here we are, greeting an eventful month that heralds in much change. Each year, in November, the New Moon in Scorpio calls us to dive a little deeper into our waters than we perhaps have in the past few months. With the moon out of sight yet present in all her energetic might, it’s an opportune time for introspection, purposeful solitude, and reflection. This is our last chance to work on planting seeds and manifestation before the Eclipse season commences. Eclipse season is not a good time for manifestation rituals due to chaotic energy. So take advantage of this special watery lunation by cozying up with a cup of Glowing Guatemala. With the moon opposing Taurus, this is a chance from the cosmos to get clear on what we’re releasing and making way for, especially regarding our passions, focus, and intuition, which will bring us that sense of security we all crave in this human experience. Ask the nurturing energy of cacao to help your emotions flow with ease to give way to clarity. Perhaps, as you prepare your drink, set an intention with each disk so, with each sip, you infuse your spirit and affirm your intentions. 

Friday, November 13th | World Kindness Day 

On this day, let’s rejoice in something that brings humanity together, even in the most unexpected ways - kindness. 

“The purpose of World Kindness Day as outlined by the World Kindness Movement is “to highlight good deeds in the community focusing on the positive power and the common thread of kindness which binds us.” We may take this day as a call to reflect upon how we can take part in one of the most admirable qualities in humankind. What’s present within the other is present within ourselves. A cup of Boundless Belize is a beautiful ally on this day as this cacao’s expansive and creative energy can bring about the inspiration to birth more joy into this world through your actions. Below we’ve outlined some ways in which you may take part in this crucial movement. 

Reflect: 

  • What does kindness look like to you? 
  • Reflect on some times others have offered kindness to you in unexpected ways; how can you give back? 

Act: 

  • After reflecting with your cacao in heart, choose how you wish to impart some kindness today. Some examples are: sending an uplifting message to a friend or loved one, sharing a cup of cacao with someone who may need it, share a compliment , share this movement with your community and see what surfaces!

Friday, November 19th | Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus 

And so it begins, another Eclipse season! As mentioned in the New Moon ritual, eclipse season is not a good time for manifestation rituals, so how we can connect to the vibes that are coming in to guide us over the next two months may be on our minds. 
Eclipses bring about a lot of change, and though sometimes those changes may be hard to accept, they are always in the direction of our highest good. These yearly astrological events also help us focus on our relationships, bringing into awareness what’s working and what’s not working, not only with others but with ourselves and work. Sitting with a cup of Connected Colombia and practicing some grounding can be very powerful on this day. Our Connected Colombia cacao comes from the community of the Arhuacos. They are very much in a harmonious relationship with Mother Earth and the movement of the energies, trusting in every experience that presents itself. By drinking this cacao, infuse yourself with this trust. If possible, go outside and sit directly on the Earth. As you sip on your cacao, envision how the Earth holds you and supports you. Offer her a prayer, gratitude, and ask for what you may need during these transformative days. 

Stay tuned for a unique Lunar Eclipse Ritual later this month!
