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)
  • Planet: Sun
  • Day: Sunday
  • Element: Fire
  • Direction: South

I prefer to purchase candles locally, but if you don’t have a shop near you to support, here are some orange candles available on Etsy.

The Pagan Grimoire
  1. Dear friends ,
    Is it positive to burn an orange candle on a Friday mid morning when the sun is shining bright and clear , if someone can help me I appreciate immensely

  2. Yes you can move it, and just a quick reminder of your spell will work or you can definitely do it again as many times as you want.

  3. I lit an orange candle tonight in a particular spot, where after thinking more about it, I should have placed elsewhere. I distinguished it before I went to bed. Can I move it to my fireplace tomorrow and do I redo my ritual each time I light it? I want to do it for the same intention. Thank you in advance.
