Coyote, much like the raven,  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

I often hear the coyotes residing in my urban setting. They sing in chorus with a siren screaming in the distance. And I have upon occasion seen one in my yard, but only a couple times in the 12 years I have been here.
