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

In our August Ritual Forecast Part 2, 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.

Cacao Ritual - Inspiration & Suggestions

Thurs. August 19th | World Humanitarian Day
This day recognizes aid workers who have sacrificed their own lives to help people affected by global crises. In 2021, 235 million people in 36 countries require humanitarian assistance. Many aid workers risk their lives around the world to serve their fellow humans in need.

Today, prepare an invigorating cup of Vibrant Vitality and visualize the people you will come across today. How can you be of service to them in the biggest or smallest of ways? Listen. Observe. Ask. Connect. Service begins directly in your neighborhood, community, or company today. 
 
Sunday, August 22nd | Aquarius Full Moon
This lunation calls in growth and good fortune in the personal, material, and spiritual realms of your life. It is an especially good influence on intimate relationships. Whether you are seeking a partner or deepening your current relationship, use this Full Moon as your opportunity to create new adventure.

Tap into your emotions and intuition, which peak during the Full Moon, and drink Tantric Rose Blossom Enhanced 100% Cacao by yourself or with your partner. Then, connect with the heart-opening combination of damiana, rose petals, and cacao as you reflect on the following: How can I become the partner that I seek in my intimate relationships? Allow your answer to guide you.

Thurs. August 26th | Women's Equality Day

On this day, women in the United States were granted equal right to vote due to the 19th Amendment of the Constitution. This forever impacted both American history and global history. One of the beautiful teachings from working with cacao is the collapse of harmful models of supremacy such as male supremacy, human supremacy, and white supremacy.

To most deeply connect with the feminine spirit of cacao, try Glowing Guatemala Pure 100% Cacao, which carries a mothering, loving, and wise energy. Once you are connected with this powerful matriarchal energy, reflect on where you can honor more feminine energy in your life. More quiet time? Slowing down? Listening and receiving more? Embodying unconditional love in the most challenging moments? Give voice and voting power to your feminine energy and watch your life transform.  

Mon. August 30th | National Beach Day

This day raises our awareness of the beauty of beaches while also inviting us to care for them. When you truly work with cacao, you learn about reciprocity and gratitude.

So, today, prepare a cup of Connected Colombia and head out to your local beach. Relax into the environment and connect your inner being with the outer world. How might I embody reciprocity in this moment? You might feel inspired to offer your gratitude to the beach for all you’ve experienced there. Or perhaps, you make a physical offering or cacao or another offering you may have brought. Or, what you give might actually be the trash you pick up and take with you as you walk the beach. Allow cacao to guide you into your innate reciprocal spirit.
