Copper metal is often associated with Venus. Malachite, Chrysocolla, and Azurite all share a particularly significant relationship with copper! This mineral can be particularly useful for the Venus-ruled sign of Taurus, who sometimes may over-indulge themselves. Malachite and Azurite are also associated with Jupiter. Because of this dual- association with the traditional benefics (or “good” guys) of astrology, Malachite can be super helpful for attracting wealth and abundance! Because of the Jupiterean influence, this crystal has ties to the adventurous and rather hot-headed sign of Sagittarius who could really benefit from Malachite’s strong, grounded presence every once in a while! The benefits of this stone are many and vary from person to person.
I sense something distinctly Saturnian in this crystal, in the way it represents nature and connects back to the forest, and in the way that this stone showers us with love that is strictly necessary, but can be a little tough to handle sometimes. Saturn is also related with old age, and the fact that the longer azurite stays exposed to air, the more malachite will form is pretty appropriate. The Saturn-ruled sign of Capricorn is already naturally really talented at accumulating material resources; Capricorns can use Malachite to strengthen boundaries and anchor them to their highest selves in times of uncertainty. This also serves as a reminder to Capricorn placements that the inner world is just as important as the outer one and deserves to be resourced as well!
*CAUTION* If Malachite is calling to you, it is imperative that you exercise caution and work only with inert polished stones; Malachite is a copper-metal mineral that is toxic to humans! Breathing in the raw dust from working with this crystal, or even excessive skin contact with raw Malachite can make you really sick. We at Bliss Crystals would not recommend using this crystal as an elixir, ritual bath, or essence. Opt instead for something inert like Rose Quartz, any of the Quartz family, or Obsidian !
