Things are not as they seem. Something that seems bad may in fact be good and vice versa. Don’t take everything at face value. Look beneath the surface. This card encourages you to try to find humor or gentle amusement in seemingly difficult situations. It also encourages you to have irrepressible fun. Step out of the mold.
Your Native Spirit Wants You to Know: In indigenous traditions, there is the concept of the tricksters. In Native American traditions, the trickster is often depicted as a wily coyote, but sometimes the trickster is a human, called “Heyoka.” There is a lighthearted, fun aspect of the trickster, but there’s also the caution to tread carefully because things are not always as they seem. Be discerning. What appears to be a good opportunity may, in fact, not be. The wonderful aspect of this card choosing you is that it offers the opportunity to step out of old, outmoded ways of perceiving yourself. The Trickster allows you to see yourself in an entirely new way and asks you to step out of old routines and habits that might be keeping you stagnant.
The Journey: It might sound very strange, but the easiest way to activate the energy of this card is to howl like a coyote. If you can, it’s even better to do it during the light of the full moon. This breaks up stagnant energies and brings in fresh vitality.
