Malachite is a gorgeous deep green stone with swirls of light green and white. Malachite is one of the best stones for protection from negative energy. It creates a positive auric field around the wearer, shielding them against any hostile forces. Malachite not only protects against negative energy, it also protects against pollutants in the environment by soaking up radiation and clearing electromagnetic smog.
Physically, Malachite assists in restoring strength and vitality after an illness. It helps repair tissue after surgery. Malachite also alleviates pain associated with inflammation making it an excellent stone for those who have arthritis.
On a metaphysical level, Malachite stimulates the solar-plexus chakra enhancing willpower. The presence of Malachite, whether as jewelry or carried aids in refusing temptations, instilling confidence, and self-responsibility aiding one to recognize and utilize their power to manifest their desires and dreams.
Scorpios tend to be vengeful when their trust is betrayed and commit to getting their revenge even if it takes years. Malachite is very good to wear when Scorpio finds themselves in this situation. Malachite can assist Scorpio with letting go, helping them understand, and releasing any experience that has caused them dis-ease or stress.
Note: Malachite is copper ore, which is toxic to humans if taken in sufficient quantities (i.e., as an elixir). However, wearing a polished stone is perfectly safe.
Beneficial For: Attracting love, dreaming, diseases of the blood, regenerating the body, metabolism, and spinal and cellular disorders.
Garnet is most commonly known in its deep red form but comes in various colors, including orange, yellow, brown, green, and gold. Each hue of garnet has its own individual characteristics, but they all have the same overall base qualities. Red garnet helps with issues of safety, security, and passion. Green Garnet strengthens unconditional love and promotes prosperity. Yellow and gold garnet increase self-esteem. And finally, an orange garnet reinforces your sense of identity within a group.
Overall, garnet is a helpful stone to utilize when faced with situations that seem hopeless. Garnet strengthens your survival instincts and helps instill courage and hope. It also helps to release you from unhealthy thought patterns that you may unconsciously be stuck in. Garnet also helps balance your sex drive. It can heighten tantric sex and assist with attracting a compatible sexual partner.
Scorpios are very sexual beings, whether it be the actual act, enjoying porn, or having a deep interest in the science behind how it works. As I said earlier, garnet is excellent at balancing your sex drive and helping you find a compatible sexual partner. That compatibility is crucial for Scorpio since having a healthy sex life is essential to their wellbeing. Scorpios can also become fixated on a thought, whether it’s good or bad. Once they believe it, it is set in stone. If those beliefs are not beneficial to Scorpio, garnet can help release them from those behavior patterns or outworn ideas that no longer serve them. Garnet allows them to bypass resistance or self-induced unconscious sabotage and move into healthier or more beneficial options.
Beneficial For: Compassion, strength, digestion of anything hard to accept, detoxification, blockages, arthritis, joint pain, hardened arteries, pain, bleeding, and enlarged prostate.
Obsidian is made from volcanic glass and can be smooth or rough with ragged edges. Like Garnet, Obsidian also comes in various colors, but black is the most commonly known color. Obsidian can be found in black with white splotches, green, blue, and even red. Each shade has its specific attributes, but as always, they share a common base.
Rainbow obsidian is one of the gentler obsidian stones. It is good for heartbreak and compassion. It helps you to cut any cords attached to an old love and replenishes the heart’s energy. Green Obsidian is also good for releasing hooks left behind from others and protects from it happening again. Blue-Green Obsidian aids you in speaking your truth and understanding your heart. Blue Obsidian supports communication. Red/Mahogany Obsidian provides strength in times of need. Snowflake obsidian releases emotional blocks. And finally, silver sheen obsidian promotes patience and perseverance.
Overall all forms of Obsidian absorb negative energy, calms grief, and reveals any negative emotions or thought patterns you may hold. Obsidian helps bring mental clarity by clearing confusion or any constricting beliefs you may have. It allows you to recognize the source behind your negative thoughts and aids you in releasing them. Obsidian is also good for breaking negative emotion-based patterns such as self-abuse, eating disorders, and addictions.
You do not want to have a Scorpio as your enemy. Scorpios can be very vengeful when their trust is betrayed, and they will get their revenge, no matter how long it will take. Obsidian is great for Scorpios to have to help them recognize when they’ve fallen into this funk. Holding or mediating with Obsidian absorbs that negative energy and releases those negative thought patterns when they find themselves spiraling in that direction.
Note: Obsidian is also the stone that makes up Apache Tears, another stone that resonates well with Scorpio.
