Since 1947, 7-day candles (also known as prayer candles, vigil candles, or saint candles or veladoras in Spanish) have been burned as an offering that continues to be active long after the person lighting it has stepped away to carry on the work of the day. Our Zodiac candles can be used in a variety of ways: boost your own energy by choosing your own Sun Sign, draw a lover closer to you by choosing one of theirs and burning them side-by-side! Send healing or protection to a friend by burning one of theirs. Write your wish on linen paper and place it under the candle, and never leave burning candles unattended. (Linen paper sold on our site separately.) Perfect for birthday gift giving with a personal touch, too!
