The coyote totem is strikingly paradoxical and is hard to categorize. It’s a teacher of hidden wisdom with a sense of humor, so the messages of the coyote spirit animal may paradoxically appear in the form of a joke or trickery. Don’t be tricked by the foolish appearances. The spirit of the coyote may remind you to not take things too seriously and bring more balance between wisdom and playfulness.

Coyote Symbolism

The coyote often symbolizes the trickster or joker. However, its symbolism is associated with a deep magic of life and creation. It can be considered as having the following meanings:

  • Jokester
  • Adaptability
  • Reveal the truth behind illusion and chaos
  • Playfulness
  • Paradoxical nature, personality difficult to categorize
  • Beware of the dark side of things and play on your resources

The wisdom delivered by the coyote spirit animal is rarely direct. The way of the coyote is to teach through ways that do not appear straightforward. It may also use subterfuge or trickery to reach its goal or deliver its message.

Don’t be fooled by the coyote’s way: In any circumstances you encounter, no matter how pleasant or clear they appear to be, there’s a hidden wisdom for you to reap. Be aware of the round about ways of the coyote totem and its teachings.

    My father has been on hospice for three months at home. This past Sunday my daughter called me to come outside with her at my father’s home. We went outside and there were 2 beautiful coyotes in the road, we looked at them and they stood and looked at us and then they walked away. I told my daughter that was a sign. 4 hours later my father passed.

    Hi! I saw a coyote at 5:30 this morning walking my dogs. It is dark out and i saw it under the streetlight down the street without knowing what it was. Then it disappeared in the dark was between the street lights and reappeared trotting into the streetlight by my house coming towards me and my dogs. I was close to my house and ran back inside. Is this an omen perhaps? Today my husband and i are signing divorce papers after an unhappy marriage, and he is also moving out. I was scared seeing the coyote at first but now feel lucky to have witnessed it’s beauty.

    I saw a coyote while power walking about 1:00 am, I felt this was strange because I live in Chicago. I’m certain this was the same animal I saw on a different occasion while power walking at the lake front around 5:00 pm. I hear coyotes are tricksters. What does it mean to see a coyote on more than one occasion?
