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?

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

Cacao Ritual - Inspiration & Suggestions

Sun. May 9th | Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is a time-honored tradition of recognizing the human beings who have raised us and/or cared for us. This meaning of this day can even extend beyond direct family, such as to friends, and even beyond humanity, such as to Mother Earth herself.

An important part of this day is reflecting on our gratitude for how we’ve been cared for, so that we can express it into the world. Consider creating a cacao ritual with Glowing Guatemala, a cacao that is ideal for personal insight with its loving motherly energy. Who or what has played the role of Mother for you? How can you express your gratitude for all that you’ve received?

Tues. May 11th | New Moon in Taurus

The New Moon in the Earth sign of Taurus invites us to connect with nature and our bodies. Taurus energy is a potent time to feel yourself as an integral part of humanity, as well as the planet.

For creating these feelings, we call on Connected Colombia Pure 100% cacao, which is grown by the Arhuaco tribe high up in the Sierra Nevada mountains of Colombia. The Arhuaco view themselves as inseparable from nature. How would life be different if you truly felt yourself as part of nature, rather than a master or victim of it? In what ways are you being invited to appreciate the interconnectedness of everything?

Fri. May 16th | Love a Tree Day

Today is an extra special day to love the cacao tree, which is part of the Theobroma genus, one of 22 species of small understory trees native to the Amazon tropical rainforest. 

Make a hot cup of Oaxacan Spice and connect with a celebratory attitude to this incredible plant spirit that has been around since before the Andes mountains rose up on the South American continent. Reflect on the following: What do I truly love about cacao? How may I receive and express my love for cacao today? 

Sat. May 22 | International Day for Biological Diversity

This day seeks to increase awareness and understanding of biodiversity, which is critical to a vibrant planet for all.

It’s a great opportunity to connect with a cup of Vibrant Vitality, an Enhanced 100% cacao with a diverse combination of life-supporting ingredients—Colombian Cacao Beans, Maca, Ashwagandha, Turmeric, Black Pepper, and Cacao Butter. With each sip, this biodiverse cacao can empower us to live more fully. What is coming to life within you? How might you weave that into the tapestry of life around you?

Wed. May 26th | Full Moon in Sagittarius - Total Lunar Eclipse

The Moon and Sun combine to form a full moon total lunar eclipse in Sagittarius, creating a spectacle for many onlookers worldwide. This Full Moon, also known as the Flower Moon by certain Native American tribes, also brings optimism toward our drive to find a deeper meaning in life.

What sense of purpose, belonging, and service exist in your heart? Try preparing a cup of high-frequency Tantric Rose Blossom to reflect on this question and discover what wants to flower from within your heart.

Sun. May 30th | National Creativity Day

Cacao often brings forth our expressive nature. What projects are you working on, for which you might need cacao’s support? In what ways can you reconnect with your innate creativity?

Known for its magical, expressive, and expansive feelings, Boundless Belize is a great cacao for connecting with your creativity. Feel it supporting and guiding you with each sip. 

Mon. May 31 | Memorial Day

Each year in the United States, this day honors and remembers all people who have sacrificed their lives while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Memorial Day is also a day to remember all loved ones who have passed away.

On this tender day, Medicinal Mushrooms Enhanced 100% Cacao can provide you with soothing energy. In nature, the 11+ mushrooms in this cacao act as recycling agents that convert the energy of the bygone into the energy of the new. Who would you like to honor today? How might you carry their spirit with you as you create your new future?

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