We chose Coyote to represent The Magician for its playful cleverness and smarts. Celtic tribes believed coyote could travel anywhere including the Otherworld where it accompanied the spirits of the dead. Coyote Magician reminds us we are magical creatures and have everything we need to bring what we want into the world.
Coyote Magician is resourceful. He creates from all four suits. The cup represents Cups, the knife: Swords, the plate: Pentacles and fire for Wands.
The apple symbolizes the type of wisdom Coyote Magician possesses. Being able to travel to different worlds, his all-access pass gives him knowledge of other realms.
The bag of coins for commerce shows the symbol of Mercury, his planet. Mercury is associated with business. Oftentimes, Coyote Magician helps us to start new enterprises and projects connected to money.
Dawn: In Astrology, Mercury belongs to either sect (day or night). Coyote enjoys the time of day where it is both day and night and neither day or night.
Coyote Magician sits in the desert where there is apparently very little to build from. Yet, given his resourcefulness, he manifests an entire world using these elements.
The Magician is ruled by the planet Mercury which governs commerce, business, communication, the dissemination of information and the hermetic arts.
