Coyote is known for being wily and sly, but underneath that cunning smile Coyote reminds us first and foremost to be adaptable: do the best with what you have here and now, allow your social structure to grow and change, and be brave in the face of a changing world. Grow with the world, not against it. In Native American lore Coyote is the trickster. Be mindful of offers that come your way. Look for the angle in someones words before blindly trusting that they have your best interest at heart. Conversely, even if they have your best interest at heart they may not know what is really right for you. Only you can know what is truly right for you.
Coyote is brave. Coyote pups grow and mature much faster than wolf pups. If you see a juvenile Coyote it’s a reminder to handle your problems with adult aplomb even if you feel naive or inexperienced. Coyote is more predatory than most dogs and even than wolves. It’s social relationships are less stable. It’s important to own your problems. Don’t take any grief from other people that you don’t need. Be ready to work with what you really have instead of waiting until the situation is perfect. Grow and change as the world grows and changes around you.
