When Coyote crosses your path:

  • Ease up. Stop taking things so seriously.
  • Stop complicating things. Don’t try to fight the situation, adapt to it.
  • Don’t berate yourself for mistakes, learn from them. Accept wisdom learned as a gift.

Think about Coyote:
Cleaver and adaptable, the coyote survives. When hunting, they hunt in pairs, using a relay cooperative effort. One chases while one rests. Their family unit is close-knit and many mate for life. They look out for and protect each other, yet they are playful and want to have fun. While looked at as a pest by many, coyotes still have a sociable nature, wit and cleverness.

Call on Coyote energy to:

  • Move beyond embarrassment of foolish acts
  • Become more sociable and accepting of your child within
  • Accept your idiosyncracies with humor, rather than shame
  • Find the wisdom from your mistakes or missteps

Coyote medicine teaches us:

  • To take things less seriously
  • To forgive ourselves for our mistakes
  • To ‘go with the flow’ rather than fight or run from a situation
