Let's deepen your connection to cacao and grow your ritual practice.
In our September 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 ritual.
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.
*P.S. - Stay tuned for your Ritual Report Part 2 in the middle of the month!

Cacao Ritual - Inspiration & Suggestions
Saturday, September 4th | National Wildlife Day
This National Day focuses on endangered species, preservation, and conservation efforts around the world.
To feel more connected to the species around you, start by preparing a cup of Vibrant Vitality Enhanced 100% Cacao. Then, get silent and identify an area of your life where you need help. Next, bring to mind a “power” animal that embodies the energy you need in your life right now. For example, a tiger for resilience, an eagle for vision, or a honey bee for joy. With each sip, feel the energy of cacao and your power animal flowing into your body. What is the quality of that energy? How can you carry that energy and express it throughout your day? This is a simple powerful exercise you can do anytime you need to shift into a greater, more dynamic state of embodiment.
Monday, September 6th | Virgo New Moon
As the lunar energy draws inward, take this time to reflect on what you wish to draw into your life. This Virgo energy reminds us of our oneness with the universe and that separation only exists in our minds.
Make a silky cup of Connected Colombia Pure 100% Cacao and open your journal. As you sip your cacao, identify three areas where you’ve felt separation and lack over the last lunar cycle. Now, as you draw in more cacao and lunar energy with each sip, meditate on how you can think, feel, and act from a place of connection this month.
Wednesday, September 8th | International Literacy Day
Since 1967, this day has reminded the public of the importance of literacy as a matter of dignity and human rights. However, despite progress being made, at least 773 million young people and adults lacking basic literacy skills today.
Today, engage in a cacao+gratitude practice with Glowing Guatemala. Be relaxed and reflect on the infinite opportunities, blessings, and joys that your literacy has granted you. And may you use your literacy to empower yourself and others.
Monday, September 13th | National Kids Take Over The Kitchen Day
The mission of the Young Chefs Academy (YCA) is to empower kids and teens to become more actively involved in the kitchen, foster family bonds, and create healthier eating habits in our youth.
Today, invite someone you care about to join you in the kitchen as you prepare a cup of Tantric Rose Blossom. Teach them about the heart-opening ingredients in this Enhanced 100% Cacao—damiana, licorice root, rose petals, orange peel, and cacao. Show them how ceremonial cacao is prepared and let them experience the joy of frothing their first cacao. Share the stories of the farmers and how Firefly cacao is grown. And teach them the importance of healthy rituals that help them create a meaningful life for themselves and others.

We hope this cacao ritual forecast sparks inspiration, deeper self-knowledge, generosity, and understanding.
