If you’re doing candle magic and looking to improve energy, spark joy, and initiate quick, positive action, the orange candle is the best candle color for this intention.
They’re best to burn on Sundays or during the holidays of Samhain, Lammas, and Mabon.
Why Should You Burn an Orange Candle?
Orange candles are best for spells or doing manifestation work for:
- Career + networking success
- Mental acuity
- Connecting to the sacral chakra
- Making new friends
- Manifesting positivity
Here are some examples of when you could burn a orange candle:
You’re preparing to talk to your boss about getting a raise and need that extra boost of confidence.
If you’ve been struggling to tap into the creativity, flow, and energy of your sacral chakra.
When you’ve been feeling blue and want to invite more joy and play into your life.
If you’ve just moved somewhere new and you want to make new friends and have more fun in this new chapter.
What Day Should You Burn an Orange Candle?
Orange candles are best to burn on Sundays because they’re associated with the Sun. But, unlike blue or purple candles, there’s no particular god that’s associated with them. Some have associated the color with Demeter or Ceres as she is the goddess of the harvest.
Personally, and this might be just me, orange has the playful confidence, like all of us have when we’re at our best. To that end, there feels like there’s a touch of that Mars energy within this eye-catching hue.
Some think that orange candles are associated with Leo, because Leo is associated with the Sun. But, I think orange has more of that get up and go Sagittarius drive.
Orange Candle Associations:
- Chakra: Sacral
- Astrology: Sagittarius (or Leo)
- God: Ceres (Demeter)

- Day: Sunday
- Element: Fire
- Direction: South
Where Can I Buy Orange Candles?
