Coyote Spirit Animal

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.

    Would anyone like to clear up his you might feel ‘disruptive’ feelings when chosen by the coyote? I feel like I’ve been going insane with random ‘coincidences’ that all trail back to the coyote.

    • Travis

      Perhaps these ‘disruptive’ feelings relate to ones striving towards personal truth.
      Like the Coyote, living without a mask brings the greatest bliss, but it also makes you so vulnerable.

      These ‘disruptive feelings when chosen by the Coyote’, I feel, might mean, as far as my story relates at the moment, just taking off my mask and letting this happen. Which, letting go and becoming more malleable with circumstances and being that Coyote ‘adaptable’ might feel like annihilation because who really feels comfortable letting go of control?

      I surely hope, for you and I, the joke is a really funny one and we can all look back and laugh about how Coyote tricked us into happiness once again.

    A coyote walked infront of my dad and I last night as we were talking. I was in tears, and the coyote looked at me, and then walked off. I stopped crying, laughed a little, and realized that everything was going to be ok. A year ago a coyote ran infront of my car when I was in aspen, co. I do believe it is my spirit animal.

  • Ethel

    I was fishing at about 11:30 pm tonight at a surburban pond and a coyote basically walked right up to me in the shadows, smelling me, before running away, light-footed, and showing itself to me one last time for a split second under a parking lot street light, disappearing entirely by the time I could jog up the hill. Considering what’s going on in my life right now, I think I know exactly what the sighting means.

  • Corina

    As I was driving home tonight I saw what looked like a dog cross the street but in typical fashion I knew something was different about it so I slowed down and looked and it was a full grown coyote standing there on the sidewalk staring back at me. We just looked at each other for abot 20 seconds.  He even looked around, then back at me.  Just as I was getting my phone to take a picture of it some jackass goes racing by me and scares It Off before I could get a picture. I am all about signs I wonder what this one means

  • shitface

    • Sarah

      what me too. Makes no sense

  • Ginger

    I always thought that i had a strong connection with wolves but i also felt that i wasnt really connected to them. Now that i took the quiz and realized that the coyote might be my spirit animal it all makes sense!

    • Katie

      My reasoning is never clear, i am a good leader like a lion, i am adventurous like a wolf, i am clever like an owl, people dont understand my sense of humor,i wont rest until i have sorted out a problem. I get angry within reason that nobody understands, i hurt with words and actions are a last result, i believe very strongly in signs, i believe in angels but not in god, i believe in the old meaning of halloween but the new one i dont, i believe in karma. My name means pure but i am from 7 different places, have so many ilnesses, i believe in so many different religions, i take things so seriously people cant joke with me, i am brave and corageous but scared of the dark. At the end of the day i dont know who i am.
