Malachite is a powerful stone to have as a crystal ally. It is the stone that will support you when you have deep inner work to complete, if you are feeling emotionally overwhelmed and need clarity or if you are needing to feel connected and grounded to the earth. It aligns with Capricorn & Scorpio astrologically which are ruled by Saturn and Mars respectively which do explain much of how this crystal can help and support you.
Let's take a deeper look.
Malachite (Mal-a-kite) is a wonderful crystal ally to have when you are doing the work to deeply connecting with yourself as it draws out deep-seated feelings that we may have trouble accessing on our own. It helps to provide you with context to these feelings helping you to break outgrown thought patterns and ways of being.
During Shadow work we can be shown how we contributed to a situation or where (if we are able to shift our way of thinking or relating to a particular situation) healing can occur. Malachite is helpful in that it can help you to take responsibility for your actions - which then empowers you to make changes in your life. Seeing where you chose act in a certain way gives you the freedom to choose to act differently in future situations.

TOXICITY WARNING: Malachite has high levels of copper which when handled in raw form can be toxic. The copper content can be drawn out in water. If wanting to make a crystal elixir use the indirect method for preparation.
If you find working with Malachite on its own is intense you can pair it with other crystals that have a calming effect such as Rose Quartz or Smoky Quartz. Some may find that when work with Malachite they experience heart palpitations due to its intensity. Remove it immediately if this happens for you and use either Rose or Smokey Quartz, placing it on your chest.
It is important that after each time you work with your Malachite stone you cleanse it. You can do this by placing it on a clear quartz cluster out in the sun. If you do not have a clear quartz cluster just placing it out in the sun with the intent for it to be cleansed will also work, it may just need to be out there a little longer.
Let's have a closer look at the astrological placements.
Scorpio is the fiery part of the water (emotions and feelings) element. It is ruled by Mars which is planet of intensity, passion and drive. This can mean that their emotions and feelings are intense and passionate. They can have great drive to achieve. If you have an astrological chart that is heavy with scorpio placements you may find Malachite a soothing stone. Scorpio natives will feel everything intensely. They have a depth to their emotions that many cannot swim in as it is to deep. As a water sign, those with a lot of scorpio will find that they are naturally empathic, Malachite can act as an emotional detoxifier. It will also help with scorpios to understand their feelings better (not all do easily) and help them along their spiritual path and to reaching the goals they are so passionate about by helping to clear obstacles. Scorpios are naturally spiritually inclined and malachite can help with increasing psychic abilities.
Capricorn is a solid earth sign that will deal with life in a very pragmatic way and can be quiet leaders. They like to feel they are achieving and moving forward either in their business or at work. Making sure there is money for life's necessities can be their love language. Malachite can be used to help those with much capricorn in their astrological chart to connect with and understand their emotions better as being connected to how they feel is not always natural for natives of this sign. Capricorns are ruled by the planet Saturn. Saturn is a rather no nonsense planet and it is the planet of concentration, tangible rewards, tenacity, ambition and productivity. Malachite helps to support the qualities of practicality and responsibility that is very capricorn, within business transactions.
Malachite supports fidelity in love relationships and loyalty in partnerships which are traits that both scorpio and capricorn value and turn in up the world with.
I hope you will find support with having Malachite as your crystal ally.
