Is Miracle Gro all-purpose fertilizer acceptable for use on cactus and other succulents?

Actually cacti & succulents don't need as strong a concentration as Miracle-Gro, nor do they need much nitrogen. I'd suggest finding a fertilizer formulated specifically for cacti, or using a product with a low nitrogen number, such as 1-7-6. (Nitrogen is always the first number.)
