Can I have a lens flare follow along a circular path?

Yes you can, in a variety of ways.
One way is to manually keyframe the position of the flare over time. I’ve done this to have a small lens flare follow a highlight glint as a 3D object moves before the camera.
Are you using Knoll Light Factory or something else?

Another way is to add a couple keyframes in the beginning and end of the flare path. Next, double-click the Layer to bring up the Masks, Anchor Point and (little known) Effects path. From here Select the Flare and you’ll see a path bezier. You can now curve the path using the tangents.
Hope this helps,
