Coyote Dream Interpretation and Meaning

Share

The coyote is a complex dream symbol. On one hand, the coyote represents wisdom and being aware of the balance of Nature. It means surviving in all circumstances and maintaining a sense of humor. On the other hand, the coyote is a symbol of weakness, deception, hypocrisy, and meddling in things that aren’t your business.

If your dream includes being attacked by a pack of coyotes, or if several coyotes are threatening you, this is a warning that you need to be very careful and watchful in the near future. If you see a friendly coyote in the dream, it indicates that you are or will be deceived by someone close to you. Alternatively, the friendly coyote suggests that you will be able to get past any troubles that are keeping you from evolving psychologically.

The appearance of a coyote in a dream may symbolize a lack of ambition or a weakness of some kind. It may also  indicate that you are attacking those around you who are weaker and can’t defend themselves as well.

Coyotes represent “tricky” and unexpected elements in life. For Native Americans, the coyote is a creator, teacher, and a keeper of magic. The coyote is the Trickster God who appears as the Creator in many creation myths. The coyote is considered to be a messenger who has the ability to change his appearance. The coyote generally represents a sacred power.

If you see a coyote in your dream, it is a reminder to keep your sense of humor and not become overly serious in life. The coyote suggest that you need to learn how to balance wisdom with folly, as represented in some cultures by the figure of the “wise fool.” Coyotes in nature are very cooperative with one another, so the dream coyote may be telling you to be more cooperative with others and that you can accomplish great things through cooperation.

  • This really helps with understanding more about the coyote. The dream it appeared to me last night was a little confusing and am not sure how to comprehend it fully. I was with a group of people and a coyote came over to us. Everyone was scared and someone said, just don't move, let it sniff around and it'll go. I had my martial arts wooden sword in my hand and was keeping as still as I can. It came over and sniffed around me several times and the sword. I felt fear but at the same time while looking at the coyote's face, I felt it was such a beautiful creature. I knew it had come to me and for me for some reason. All of a sudden it grabbed the sword in its mouth and took it from me. Everyone panicked and stepped in closer together as to say, our group is stronger than you. A part of me did not want to join in the group, but as I did, sadness came over me that I had to face the coyote in such a battling way. It stared at us for a while and then started to leave. All of a sudden the coyote was a boy, a man maybe and I was holding his hand saying, "I love you and I am sorry that this is happening and that you have to go." I wanted him to stay because I felt he needed help, but the group of people were afraid. All I did was say, "I love you" as he let go of my hand and rode off in a sort of carriage led by a pack of coyotes. The group of people couldn't understand why I had done that.
    Later on that day, we were at our house(I guess we all stayed together) and they were all preparing for a battle with the coyoteㄴ. I kept saying, "You see, you should have been nice to it, now it is coming to attack"

  • I rarely dream, so I'm now trying to understand what this dream meant. I was with my daughter and her family and some of the ladies from my church. One of the ladies from the church noticed a coyote trying to sneak up on us. Moving from one side of the street to the next. We called for help and they came. However one man was standing in the field with the coyote digging a trench. We all wanted to let him know that he was trying to sneak upon him. He said to us I know so we asked him to try to scare him away with the shovel. His reply way no because they he will jump up at you. Out comes my son in law beating on the ground with an object and behind him was our family dog who died years ago and a couple of my grandkids. The crowd was screaming at him to stop but he would not. The coyote then with his eyes turning light fire jumped over the man digging the trench. He grabbed the dog at the throat and beheaded him, only his torso was left. After that everyone really disappeared except my family and myself. My daughter and I noticed several more coyotes came out of the woods attempting to surround us. We the went into an area of restrooms tried to call for those who had helped us to return to help us again. While in the restroom area my son in law comes to join us with my grandson to say that there are a pack of coyotes out there now and they are closing in. My reply was for him to take out his cell phone and call someone he knows to come and help us. His reply was he did he had called the ladies from the church and they were on there way. This is where my dream ended. Please help me in understanding exactly what this dream could have possibly meant?

      • I had a dream last night. I was outside at night and a coyote came to me trying to be friendly. While that coyote was being friendly another was sneaking up to attack me. Then both tried to attack me. A neighbor's dog jumped in to scare them off.

  • I'm deeply confused about the dream I had. It took place over I'm guessing several nights, and each night I would come out and feed this strange sickly coyote. On the last night I dreamed, the coyote stood up on 2 and appeared to be a muscular man with a snarling face. After that I was taken and I can't remember the rest. It scared me and I've had a terrible headache since. I'm only 14 so I'm lost.

  • I had a dream I was with this guy I just met.in this dream we were at his apartment. I started puking all over his house and before he went to clean it up he asked if I wanted to see his rabbit. a part of me mostly wanted to say no because I felt sick from puking but I said yes any way. he got the rabbit which was part robot. I said hey this isn't a rabbit as he went around the corner. all of a sudden his apartment dissolved and he wasdown the street and I was still closer to the rabbit. suddenly a raccoon came to chase the rabbit and I'm scared of raccoons so I tried to run to my friend. but then I heard a dog snarl and a coyote came into view as I had started to run, cutting me off. that coyote then begin to approach me.I had a. bucket for puking in in my hand andand threw that at the coyote and it charged me and bit me under my left armpit and held on tight. and in the distance I could see my friend running away

  • This was very enlightening. But I have had recurring coyote attack dreams since I was around 6 years old and I am now 18. I'm not sure what to do about it and they are extremely graphic terrifying nightmares. There are about three different recurring nightmares that I constantly have. Any thoughts? Please email me!

  • What if you are being called Coyote in the dream? I don’t remember much of the dream. I was with a group of people and they kept referring to me as Coyote instead of my usual nickname. It was just unusual.

  • coyote in my dream pees on my land claiming it as hers ; I open the door and yell at her to scare her off . A tomcat is now sitting in the yard purring and rubbing against a small sapling birch tree. I hesitate to call out to him to get him to safety...coyote comes back, they take two steps together and then coyote rips the head off the beautiful tomcat in my yard because I did not call to him to get him into the house for safety. I fell to the ground wailing and beating on mother earth over my perceived folly. There were two "opaque" coyotes watching from a distance to see what was going to happen. A voice stated basically " Those who are stupid must suffer pain"...OMG...what is your interpretation of this? It was a vivid prophetic experience. I get that I should have taken in the cat...but what of the coyote marking her territory in my territory and killing that cat?
    thanks.
