To dream of a coyote represents feelings about a person or situation that you feel is cold-hearted. Someone that you feel is cruel, selfish, uncaring, or heartless. Taking or being mean and then moving on as though it doesn’t matter. Insensitive behavior that doesn’t even care about what it did. Selfish need to take something away without asking. Unwelcome “jerks” that you wish would leave or stop showing up unannounced to embarrass you. Feelings about “scumbags” who will take anything they can get.
Positively, a coyote may reflect emotional protection that doesn’t care about what anyone else thinks of you. A willingness to lower standards to survive at all costs. A willingness to put your own needs first to survive while being aware of how much people don’t like you. Selfishly surviving when nobody cares about you. Not respecting anyone who thinks you don’t deserve to survive.
Negatively, coyotes may reflect an arrogant attempt to get away with dishonest behavior to someone’s face. Lying to someone and then getting angry if they question it.
Example: A woman dreamed of seeing baby coyotes grow into adults. In waking life she overheard a woman saying that wished her boyfriend would dump his kid so she could have him all to herself. The coyote reflected the discussion of selfish abandonment of children that the woman was overhearing.
Example 2: A woman dreamed of staring at a coyote. In waking life she witnessed a vicious argument on the Internet where one person said things that she thought were extremely cruel and ignorant. This person never returned to the message board where the argument took place after making her final comments. The coyote in her dream reflected the casual attitude with which the cruel remarks were made.
Example 3: A woman dreamed of seeing coyotes playfully walking around her. In waking her she suspected that her husband was enjoying cheating on her and feeling good getting away with it.
Example 4: A woman dreamed of seeing coyotes. In waking life she felt that her boss liked to lie to her face and get away with it.
