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

In our monthly 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?

Cacao Ritual - Inspiration & Suggestions

Mon. April 12 | New Moon in Aries

This New Moon connects with significant cosmic energy that is pushing us towards our goals. It's a great time to let go of fears and take action on our desires, as well as to bravely lead ourselves into new beginnings.

Thriving Tanzania can support you as you step forward. It is a great cacao for clarifying, focusing, and taking action, as well as learning and studying, which are imperative to growth. Where may I benefit from more clarity and focus? What actions am I being guided to take this New Moon?

Tues. April 13 | International Plant Appreciation Day

Plants are our friends, a critical exterior organ of humans. One of many examples of our symbiotic relationship is that plants absorb the energy of the sun and allow us to consume it through them, which gifts us with the incredible privilege of continuing to live.

Today is your opportunity to reflect on what you appreciate about the wise cacao plant. We recommend a hot cup of Glowing Guatemala, which is ideal for finding loving insights. What has cacao taught you? How has cacao brought meaning into your life? 

Wed. April 14 | International Moment of Laughter Day 

May this day put a big smile on your face and remind you to laugh in celebration of life. As they say, "laughter is the best medicine", especially when shared with others.

We recommend Oaxacan Spice cacao to bring warm energy into your relationships and community. Like laughter, we often find that Oaxacan Spice elevates us and gets our circulation pulsing again. Will you allow the playful spirit of cacao to humor your life today?

Fri. April 16 | Mushroom Day 

This is a special day to appreciate our incredible fungi friends. More recently in the Western world, mushrooms are being used for healing purposes, in addition to being a culinary delight. 

To activate your optimal health, try celebrating this day with our Medicinal Mushroom Enhanced 100% Cacao with 11 different mushrooms. Let the earthy cacao flavor melt on your tongue as you feel into the calming and nourishing experience. Where in your mental, physical, or emotional body would you like to direct the healing power of this mushroom cacao?

Thurs. April 22 | Earth Day 

National Earth Day educates the public about climate change, air pollution, water pollution, erosion, recycling, composting, renewable fuels and power, carbon footprints, efficient cars, rain forests, ecosystems. A clear takeaway from such awareness is our interconnected nature and our responsibility to care for it.

Sit with Connected Colombia Pure 100% cacao and reflect: How may I become more aware of my interdependence and interconnection? How may I use this new awareness to benefit the planet? As Rogelio Mejía, Governor of the Arhuaco, said, “It’s important that human beings become aware that we are just another element of nature. We are not nature’s masters. Nature is the master of our lives. Therefore we should change our attitudes towards living within nature.”⁠ 

Sun. April 25 | National DNA Day

National DNA Day commemorates the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003 and the discovery of DNA's double helix in 1953. By the latest estimate of the human genome, we are thought to have about 18,000 protein-coding genes. For comparison, sequencing of the cacao genome has identified 28,798 protein-coding genes. The DNA of cacao is extraordinarily complex! 

To call in an elder Earthly intelligence, try preparing a cup of Boundless Belize Pure 100% cacao. Let the wisdom of this magical, expansive, expressive pure 100% cacao guide you forward. What's your biggest question in life right now? Then listen to how this resilient plant spirit responds to your inquiry.

Tues. April 27 | Full Pink Supermoon

In many Native American tribes, April’s Full Moon is associated with the growth of life. Both the Tlingit and Sioux tribes referred to it as the Budding Moon, after the new plants that begin to bud and sprout during spring. Also, supermoons are said to be bigger and brighter than your average full Moon.

The energy of Tantric Rose Blossom aligns strongly with this Full Pink Supermoon. Prepare a hot cup of this heart-opening enhanced cacao with pink Moroccan Rose petals and reflect on the following: How may I support my own growth and blossoming? How may I channel this growth to support the blossoming of others? 

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