Animal Spirits: The Coyote

coyote_snowWhere I now live, there are coyotes all around. I’ve encountered a young, curious one in a park while walking my Alaskan Malamutes. I can often hear them singing to each other during the night, and occasionally I will see one on the road nearby that separates the residential area and the farmlands that lead up to the mountains. I feel connected to them when I see or hear them, as if they are guiding and affirming the changes and transformations in my own life.

Coyotes are a skillful, intelligent, and resourceful canine (Canis latrans), and with their playful and seemingly fearless behaviors they symbolize youth and trickster energy.

In Native American cultures, the coyote is seen as a shapeshifter, reminding us to be adaptable to change and that by removing our masks/personas we find our True Self. They are also seen as a transformer, bringing both endings and new life, including singing humans into being. Listen to coyote:

The Coyote Symbolizes:

  • Transformation, Change, Death & Rebirth
  • Shapeshifting
  • Playfulness, Stealth, & Trickster Energy
  • Intelligence & Resourcefulness
