    Would spider be an artist?

    • Hi, Rocky!

      Oh my gosh, yes! Spiders are the ULTIMATE creative artists! In Native American legend, it was the Spider who taught the grandmothers how to weave. In many “Shamanic” cultures, Spiders teach us to weave our dreams into reality. And, what is an artist’s creation? It’s a sculpture, painting, song, dance, etc. that he/she dreamed into reality.

      One of my favorite tarot/oracle cards is from Colette Baron-Reid’s Wisdom of Avalon deck. Keeping in alignment with so many cultural depictions of Spiders, the card represents creative persons and/or times when creativity is needed.

      Hope that helps!

      Stay wild,
