Spider Symbolism & Meaning

spider symbolism & meaning 1200x630

Because you’re here seeking the wisdom of Spider energy, magic, and medicine, it’s a sign your higher self is guiding you toward a deep understanding of your place and purpose in this life.

Spiders are among the most patient and long-suffering of all animal spirit guides. They carefully weave a web then wait for their prey to come to them. Each strand of Spider’s web connects to another, creating a whole, safe space in which you can feed your spirit. Spider knows, however, that anything worth doing is worth doing correctly. You cannot rush enlightenment. Reawakening your soul’s knowledge of the Great Mysteries can truly become a life-time’s pilgrimage.

Spider bears a message about light, darkness and the delicate balance between the two. We as humans sometimes forget there is a special beauty and power to the shadow self. By understanding that side of our being we come to embrace the light all the more fervently.

No one is perfect. Spider lets you examine your imperfections from a different perspective – one focused on creating transformation from within.

Among ancient Egyptians, Spider was sacred to Goddess, Neith – a mother figure. Similarly Native Americans see Spider as a creator and a symbol of the divine Feminine aspect. This creative energy is central to Spider’s lessons.

Planning and taking your time with a heartfelt project is the key to success. Spider says, “Haste makes waste. Go slow and wait for the right time.” As you do, you’ll achieve greater understanding of all your aptitudes and traits and pull them together as a cohesive whole.

Spider as a spiritual guide and mentor encourages you to try looking at a problem from different angles. Follow one strand – where does it take you? Try another – where are you then? Stay flexible and don’t be afraid to test out a new Path. This is particularly true of relationships and other close ties. Where do you want to build your web/network so that it’s strong?

You may also consider the power of the Spider’s web when working with Spider. Spider’s webs are miraculous. They are often thought of as a form of sacred geometry found in nature, created by instinctive architects and engineers, the Spider.

Are you being asked to work to create divine symmetry or give shape to your ideals? How can you draw on your instincts as a creator or inventor in order to perfect your gifts and achieve your goals?

What creative arts are instinctive and second nature to you? Each Spider’s web is unique, how are you being called to reinvent your craft and refine your art?

A Spider’s web reminds us of the interconnection and Divine perfection within the universe. What’s more, Spider meaning reminds us to reflect on how we have the resources to “catch” what we need and attain our dreams.

Often, we humans try to hold on to what we create, but Spider reminds us we can be free to create, destroy and recreate. This reinforces Spider’s meaning in connection to the cycle of birth, death and rebirth.

You may also be reminded by Spider to have faith in your gifts. You may not need to hold on, and holding on may prohibit you from really refining what you create.

Like an artist or writer who needs to revise again and again, perhaps Spider is teaching you not to fall in love with your first painting or first draft. Instead, you may be reminded to continue to build and innovate, creating perfection through the larger process.

Spider Spirit Animal

Spider as a Spirit Animal comes into our lives to kick start our creativity. If you’ve stalled out, now is the time to breathe life into your ideas and dreams! It’s time to begin weaving a strong, well-considered web and overcoming challenges. Spider as a Spirit Animal may also appear as a messenger from the Goddess calling on you to reconnect with sacred feminine energy, not only in the Universe but also within yourself.

Remember, to a Spider, its web is its ‘world’. When Spider appears to you, maybe the time has come for you to see yourself as the center of your own world. Like Spiders, we create our own world. We are the makers of our own destiny. Once we understand ourselves, we can truly begin manifesting our own reality.

Most webs are round-ish spirals which unite at a central point. In this, Spider webs are mandalas that you can use to meditate on the core themes and situations of your life. As the center of your own world, are you focused on what you truly want or are you spending time concentrating on negative energy?

The spiritual meaning of Spiders can vary based on cultural traditions. In West African and later Caribbean lore, Anansi is a well-known figure. This trickster being is a cunning Spider who is said to know all stories and thus is associated with weaving of tales but also with deception and trickery.

Some point to the figure of Anansi as the inspiration for The Spider and the Fly, a poem by Mary Howitt.

Spider Totem Animal

People born with a Spider totem have very symmetrical souls. You understand and maintain the delicate balance between the physical realm and spirit, between the old and new, between yin and yang.

Spider people have a keen understanding of the medicine wheel and all its workings. You have a knack for unraveling even the most difficult of patterns and re-working it into something useful and positive.

If you have Spider Totem Animal, you can be inventive, creative, tenacious and have a strong wit. You may know how to influence others and may have a good sense of the larger patterns all around you.

Finally, Spider is a communicator – writers very often have a Spider totem.

Spider Power Animal

Spiders are very delicate creatures. But nature gifted them with incredible powers of agility. When you feel as though you’re walking on a very thin rope which is sure to break, call on Spider as a Power Animal. Its energy and medicine can help you see how to better navigate the frayed threads of life and find your way back to a position of strength.

Invoke Spider as your Power Animal when you want to regain the reigns of control over your fate. Destiny awaits and Spider offers creative solutions for achieving your goals. Weave an energetic web that supports your soul. With Spider at your side you can create your reality and capture the magic of the moment!

Both creative, but also potentially aggressive, Spider reminds us to balance our resourceful, creative and inventive side but also to protect that which we value.

When you are working with the energy of Spider, you may be challenged to be creative and innovative with your strategies. What lengths will you go to in order to obtain what you desire?

Spiders pull out all the stops to thrive. They trap, they lure prey and they know how to entice their prey into their webs. In this way, the spiritual meaning of Spiders can be related to your ability to attract and manifest, using your creative, cunning and inventive side.

Spider Native American Symbolism

Spider appears in a wide variety of Native American stories. Perhaps the most prevalent is Grandmother Spider who spins the web of time and knows all aspects of the future and the past.

In Shamanism the Spider is an inventor. The creature’s 8 legs represent the medicine wheel, and Spider spirit was the sacred keeper of Native American history.

To pre-Columbian people, the Goddess who has been called the Teotihuacan Spider Woman represents a creative Goddess worshipped by early people in what is now Mexico. Spider is associated with illusions.

To some Native people, Spider is said to have taught humans the alphabet, creating letters and words in their web. This is a common thread, no pun intended, in Spider lore around the world. The link between Spider and language is prevalent.

Native cultures often view Spider as a powerful ally reminding us to be careful of what we weave but also that we have the potential to be creative and powerful, regardless of our appearance. Intelligence can lead you to strategize a path to success even when the odds seem against you.

A Cherokee story tells of Spider playing a key role in an origin myth, bringing light to the world and creating life as we know it on Earth. When other animals were unsuccessful, it was Grandmother Spider who was able to make the world habitable.

To the Sioux, Iktome, the Spider Trickster Spirit, is a prominent figure among the Lakota people.

To some Navajo Native Americans, the Spider’s web is reminiscent of the rays of the Sun, therefore reinforcing this connection between Spider and light, life and creativity.

Are you seeing the larger patterns around you? Are you using your creativity and seeing the light?

Spider Christianity Symbolism

What do Spiders symbolize in Christianity?

Just as many people have a complicated relationship with Spider, so is this reflected in the Bible. We admire Spider but also sometimes fear this creature.

Various stories in the Bible give different interpretations to Spider spiritual meaning. Spider’s ability to create and diligently work the hours away corresponds to faithful work.

To some Christians, Spider spiritual meaning conveys the holiness of devoting yourself to work. Faith and toil are linked in this symbolism. Spider spiritual meaning, then, is that when you use your creativity and skills to work toward fulfilling your calling, you are also doing God’s work.

Yet there are other interpretations of Spider’s spiritual meaning in the Bible as well. In Isaiah, for example, the Spider’s web is associated with weakness and illusion. Something frivolous and easily destroyed and therefore associated with evil and temptation to see things not as they are.

In this regard, Spider may serve as a warning that what you seek as “protection” is actually an illusion. Are you putting too much stock in creating shields and barriers that don’t actually serve their purpose? Are you putting your trust in flimsy structures rather than building a solid foundation?

In other stories, God uses a Spider’s web to create protection, sealing off a cave and protecting his followers, for example. So the larger meaning can be to use discretion when seeking protection. The same structures that seem secure may be flimsy if they aren’t built with faith and God’s influence built in.

Still other references, such as a line from Proverbs, suggest a Spider’s spiritual meaning relates to humble work being more solid than pretensions and wealth. The line “The Spider taketh hold with her hands and is in the King’s palaces…” suggests that Spider spiritual meaning relates to the ability of the humble worker to ascend to true power.

This line also seems to offer some insight into how diligent work can have a greater impact, there is no place the Spider can’t go, even into the great palaces.

Stories tell of a Spider leading Mary and Joseph to safety. In this story, Spider wove a web to disguise and protect them from soldiers as they passed through Egypt. To some, Spider signifies human frailty and temptation by the Devil, specifically because of Spider’s talent for trapping or luring their prey into their web.

Some followers of the Christian religion also follow the more secular interpretation of Spider meaning, associating Spider with venom, danger, and their own fear. Thus, to some, Spider’s potentially destructive attributes gain focus.

In this case, the more negative connotations can align Spider spiritual meaning with the presence of danger, with evil or the Devil. Ultimately, remember that an individual or group’s assigned meaning will depend in part on the personal relationship you feel with an animal.

If you haven’t overcome a fear of spiders, or if you see the venom or bite as being more alarming than all the beneficial things Spider has to teach and offer, you may come to associate Spider symbolism and meaning with something negative, evil or to be vanquished or avoided.

Those who believe St. Patrick expelled snakes from Ireland also believe that Spiders were driven out, as these creatures were associated with witches. This association between Spider and witchcraft was also rampant in the Medieval church in Europe. As such, Spider has come to be associated with evil, deception or being lured into a trap.

Yet Spider may also be asking you to see your own Shadow. How do you need to protect yourself? Are you going too far to set boundaries? Or not far enough?

You may also be called to pay attention to what in your life is “toxic” if you associate Spider with the potential bites and venom. We can also remember that industriousness, hard work and following your calling can bring you closer to God.

The process by which a Spider spins her web, leaving a dragline behind her, is also symbolic of the threads that connect us to God and that we are never disconnected.

Spider Celtic Symbolism

What do Spiders symbolize in Celtic cultures?

In Celtic tradition Spider has strong associations with the Druids. This nature-based religion sees the Spider as having three distinct characteristics – the Bard, the Ovate and the Druid. The bard is the artist and weaver of webs. The Ovate is a seer that provides perspective, and the Druid is the teacher of Spider medicine.
We are told that Spider created the Ogham, an early Irish alphabet that is often seen on sacred stones in Ireland.

It was considered bad luck to kill a small Spider, as they are believed to bring good luck and money.

The lore and magic of Spider is also seen in the tale that Spider will not spin a web on an Irish Oak.

In Scottish lore, a Spider led Robert the Bruce to eventual victory, becoming King of Scotland. This spiritual meaning of Spider suggests that this small creature can have a powerfully large impact on the destinies not only of people but of nations.

Webs are associated with weaving, destiny and the fabric of life. Spider is seen as a sacred weaver, bringing together past, present and future but also weaving the various realms. The dream and physical realm, the spiritual and mundane realm. The here and now as well as the afterlife.

The creative energy and Goddess symbolism associated with Spider may have been influenced by the stories of Ariadne from ancient Greece.

Magic, creation, power and fate are all associated with Spider meaning and symbolism.

Spiders have eight legs and this number is significant not only of the Goddess but also represents infinity, advancement and life being a larger cycle of creation and advancement.

Samhain, the holiday now associated with Halloween, signified the death of the productive, growth season and birth of the dark, cold season of winter. As such, Spiders were associated with this day and are still considered common symbols of Halloween world wide.

Spider Dreams

When Spider comes into your dreams it’s very often acting as a messenger from the Goddess who endeavors to put your life on the right track. Pay attention to your feelings about the Spider, and also see what it is doing in the dream. That will give you greater perspective.

Spider can also come to you in dreams to help connect you with the Divine Feminine. Your ancestral past and power. You may be receiving a symbolic message to broaden your network or proceed on your quest to fulfill some kind of sacred work or mission as well.

Far Eastern Spider Symbolic Meanings

In China, Spider is an auspicious creature. The ideogram for Spider begins with a character that has the same intonation as the word “happy.” The symbol of Spider on jewelry acts as a fertility charm, particularly for a family wanting a son.

In Japan a golden orbed Spider dwells in Joren Falls and acts as a guardian who saves swimmers from drowning.

My love to you as you dance on the gossamer threads of your life!

In Japan, Spiders are both revered for their artistry but also in some stories, feared or reviled as villains not to be trusted. The Earth Spider, which is also a derogatory term for early people who refused to vow allegiance to the Emperor, is also used to describe a mythical beast that had the body of a Tiger but Spider’s legs.

Yet not all portrayals are so dire. Yushkep Kamuy, the Spider Goddess was revered as a nurturing Goddess who assists in childbirth. She was revered by the Ainu, an indigenous culture in Japan.

To some people in India, the Spider is associated with the Goddess, Maya, who weaves illusions and is associated with dreams.

In China, the God Fuxi is considered one of the original and most powerful deities. He created fishing, farming and trapping. It is said that he learned language and writing from watching Spider and studying Spider’s web.

Spider Tattoo Meaning

What do Spiders symbolize as a tattoo?

The meanings and significance of Spider tattoos can vary. Some people are drawn to these incredible creatures because they are both captivating, beautiful, but also edgy.

In this way, Spider can be associated with protection, even if a person doesn’t realize Spider has this spiritual significance. Adorning your body with a Spider can send a signal to others that you don’t fear what the average person fears.

Spider tattoos can signify a realization of your power, and can connect you to your spiritual side. You may be reminded of your power and creativity when you see a Spider tattoo.

Some people may choose a Spider tattoo specifically because of a connection to the Goddess Ariadne, associated with web-weaving and sacred patterns. Others, because they want to convey their love of language, writing, or other crafts or visual arts. Are you being asked to share your vision and create something empowering and impactful?

To some, a Spider tattoo can convey the connection to the Universe and all creation or represent sacred art or sacred geometry. The aspects of Spider spiritual meaning that relate to networking can also be embodied in this tattoo.

A Spider tattoo can also be a symbol of destiny and the Fates. Spider is associated with maternity, feminine power and the power of your words and art. A Spider tattoo can imply that you embody this energy.

Spider Spiritual Meaning

What do Spiders symbolize in a broader sense?

Creating language and innovating, attracting, drawing the attention of others and shaping your own destiny are just a few of the seemingly universal meanings of Spider.

To some, Spider meaning is tied into the empowerment of women or the power and danger of losing your sense of logic when seduced sexually. This symbolism relates to the behavior of some female Spiders who will kill their mates.

In this regard, Spider’s spiritual meaning can be said to be symbolic of using whatever resources are available to you to turn the tables on those in power. This doesn’t need to involve actual violence, but rather is symbolic of using your skills and wit to help claim your power in relationships.

The story of Arachne, who challenged Athena and as a result was turned into a Spider. According to myth, Arachne and Athena were both skilled weavers. Yet Arachne used her skill to create scenes in her weaving that depicted the Gods abusing their power over humanity. As a result, Athena used a potion created by Hecate and turned Arachne into a Spider.

Drawing on this story, Spider spiritual meaning can be connected with those who speak truth to power or use their art to expose abuses of power.

Others interpret this symbolism as a reminder for mortals to “know their place” and not interfere in the affairs of the Gods.

The Greek Fates, who spin the threads of destiny and are therefore associated with weaving, can be associated with Spider as well.

What are you being asked to weave? What threads are you being called to cut?

Because of the association between weaving a web, language and communication, the God Mercury is also associated with Spider. As is the Throat Chakra, the place of communication. It is no surprise that the biggest tool of communication known to humanity is nicknamed the “world wide web.”

This modern stage in the advancement of communication is connected to the spiritual meaning of Spiders as human creativity and innovation has led to the development of new ways to connect. New language, namely computer programming language, is also involved and so we are reminded again of Spider’s influence at play.

Spider can be a symbol of good luck, advancement, innovation, communication, and interconnection. You can both find protection and also face your fears when working with Spider.

    I’ve been thinking alot about how weak my relationships are and how onesided my relationship with my old man is and i cant completely decide if i should give our relationship a rest or stick with it and its put me into a mental rut, but i have not been treated well and I have a super tough time sticking up for myself. My thoughts feel so loud! I then lit up my candles and began to meditate on it. During my meditation I was interrupted by a small black spider directly in front of me almost as if it were mirroring me in my meditation. What do you think this spider was trying to tell me?

    • Jules says:

      Since spiders are a symbol of creation, it would go hand-in-hand with new beginnings. You seem to be aware of the fact that you are not being treated well in your relationship. Use the spider’s creative power to begin a new life where your needs and desires are in the center. Create a relationship that fosters your power instead of draining it.

      • Tricia A Nelson says:

        I just got done meditating and a spider was in my dream. In response to what you wrote I feel like your talking about my life. Thank you. Namaste

    Hello there,

    Me and my husband went on a vacation and left a family member in our home, when we came home there were little patchwork of spider webs in almost every room including under our bed. I can’t remember seeing any spiders. We have lived in this apartment for over 6 years and never experience anything like this.
    It has been boring me ever since, is there any explanation to all this ?

  3. Ida says:

    Large spider moved into my home, lives in my staircase that goes to the basement. I also saw small spiders around house, different kinds from large one. What does this mean.

  4. Ahyadh says:

    I saw a spider in my room, having 4 legs on left and 2 legs on the right, bottom 2 were missing. Can you pls tel me what dose this mean?

  5. Julia says:

    I woke up this morning with bites all over my arm and ankle on my right side. Then, later that morning, as I was sitting at my dining room table, a spider starts crawling towards my hand! I jumped up, my sister ran in with the swatter, but it quickly dissappeared. As if that wasn’t enough, this afternoon I was sitting in my living room eating with my sister when the darn sucker was crawling up my arm! Same spider! I jumped up and again, it disappeared. This time between the counch cushions. The search continues. I am not sure if the bites are connected to this spider, but the other two times, this is crazy. And why only me??? My sister has been here all day with me but hasn’t been attacked by this spider. I am not sure what to make of this. :/

    • Kelly says:

      Might be curious to consider location of bites, as spider accu awareness. Then google TCM, traditional chinese medicine. Compare where you were bitten, to where acupuncture points are. TCM will give you a sense of what organ, organ system, meridian and emotions involved. Any bite, or pain can be viewed in such a manner. Good luck

  6. Cyndi says:

    Spiders have been around me the last couple of weeks….. then I dreamt of one walking away from me on my bed, this dream woke me up, to look for the spider . Everything I have ever read about spiders is positive, but I have always associated them with bringing me the message that someone around me is being less then kind …. beware.
    I have been struggling lately in several aspects of my life….. now I feel that the spider walking away from me in my dream is pointing to my life leaving me???? Any thoughts?

  7. Emm says:

    Great information! Lately there has been a need for resolve of projects needing finality. Main area was landscape and yes finished. Comment that really spoke of its grandeur “It looks like a paradise”. After spending the entire spring and summer with the project many spiders have crossed paths. While starting the inside yard a yellow small spider rested on a shovel that had been used by moi. During cooking a jumper sat on my tee shirt as Je cooked. They have really come out at variable times, what may these encounters mean?

  8. Nina says:

    I woke up this morning to my alarm and had a HUGE spider om the wall right in front of my eyes. I was stunned! I walked closer to it and it looked if though it had 12 legs. It was slowly moving up my wall. I turned around to turn off the alarm and when I looked back toward the spider it disappeared. I looked up and down, on the ceiling, on the floor, but it was gone! I only looked away for a second. I am confused by that and I also feel it was a message. I read what you said about spiders and it totally relates to my situation, but I feel I am missing something. Can you please help me understand it better?

  9. George Maurice Parnell says:

    I love all of this information And thank you

  10. Maggie says:

    This article is helping me understand the happenings of the past couple of days, but I seem to be having problems pinning the exact meaning down. A couple days ago, I had a, not at all scary, but intense dream. There were spiders everywhere, mass amounts of them crawling and building webs. One part of the dream, spiders were coming out of my mouth, but again, not scared at all. And then yesterday, in real life, I hopped into my car, and right there in front of my face was the tiniest spider, building a web from the steering wheel to the visor. During the whole car ride, it kept building its web from the visor to next to me head by the handle. The spider is still in the car. I don’t know what the universe is trying to tell me. Any thoughts?

  11. Will says:

    For the last month I have been constantly finding spiders on my arms and body. Often they are small and stay with me for some time – 15 or 20 minutes. Just yesterday a spider played on my arms for 20 minutes; it would jump from finger to finger and if I put my finger in its path (to keep it from crawling up to my neck) it would crawl into my finger (sometimes jump on!) and start exploring the other hand and arm. Do you think this is significant?

    • K says:

      Exact same thing happened to me today, a small grey spider kept crawling all over my arms and fingers and I kept letting it go but he kept coming back so I took him home and put him in my flower pot.

  12. Kellzmidnight says:

    Thank you so much for this wonderful insight I will have to take some time and deeply think about my dreams and my life situation.

  13. Matthew says:

    I’m starting to believe the spider may be a spirit animal of mine. I’m starting to enter creative pursuits and the idea of spiders and Druidism have been cropping up repeatedly. In addition, the idea of being the centre of your web and waiting for the right time is appealing to me. Plus they’re showing up in my life more and more (due to it being summer). One small problem, though: I have an irrational fear of spiders. Can hardly even look at them. Does this have any significance?

    • Allison LIZOTTE says:

      Me too. I’ve always been terrified of spiders. As I’ve gotten older I’ve calmed down a bit. As in I don’t throw a tantrum whenever I see one. But I would probably have a panic attack if one ever touched me. I really do think the spider is my totem though. Which I find incredibly interesting.

  14. marouane says:

    i was on the roof of the house at 3 am, thinking about the purpose of LIFE and my life, then i sat down crying and looking to the sky breathing the fresh air, i almost lost hope in finding what i want, then a huge spider appears, , so i came here i googled spiders in spirituality, and everything is clear now!

  15. susan says:

    Tarantula is one of my four power animals both on my totem (carved for me by a Mestizo) and in my shamanic journeys. Your interpretations are illuminating.

  16. Jon says:

    I was told by a shaman that Spider had medicine for me and and to seek out the meaning.., very interesting information here. I’m not going to bother looking any further as I can relate to much of what is said here and it gives me plenty to think about.

  17. Mary Ivory says:

    Thank you, Grazie and Cheers,

    I WOKE UP THIS MORNING AND A SPIDER IS CLINGING TO MY WINDOW SCREEN ON THE 8TH FLOOR OF MY APARTMENT BUILDING. SO I PLUGGED SPIRITUAL SIDER INTO GOOGLE AND IT’S SO WONDERFUL TO GLEAN ALL THIS INFORMATION AS I AM STARTING A NEW PROJECT AND THE WORD “HAPPY’ IS WHAT I NEEDED TO HEAR AND BUILD A NEW, SAFE FOUNDATION FOR MYSELF.

  18. Stephanie says:

    Good evening, I’m seeing a lot of spiders these past weeks, one just drowned in my bath, I tried to save her but couldn’t make it in time. What is the meaning of this? I’m a bit confused. Many thx

  19. Yahya says:

    There is something going on last year that makes me always remember the incident. I was having a rough time for a moment at that time but something out of reality suddenly happened. In the amid of my rough time i was strongly shaken to my core but there is few days that i kept seeing spiders, a lot of spider crawling on my ceiling every time i wake up from bed in morning. I have no idea what it is but only believe that i have visual delusion(since i started reducing my sleeping hour to a time it brings harm to me, so i only think i’m just hallucinating). It looks really real, but I don’t think there is actual spiders there. In fact how come there is a lot of spider on there, it’s uncountable. I close my eyes for a while and looked up again and the spiders are gone. (so i convinced my self its only hallucination because i’m tired and doesn’t have a good quality of sleep.). I continued my day and ignore the insignificant event happened that morning. But i still remember it. It makes me wonder, why I’m seeing only spiders but not something else as my hallucination. If i can remember correctly i experience this hallucination only 3 times only, and all of them happened in the morning after i wake up. So after a year i found a book about psychic children written by Sylvia Browne and Lindsay Harrison. The book mention about spirit guide, so I was wondering if the spider is my spirit guide. Then i looked on the internet and found this.

  20. Shayne says:

    Spiders keep appearing in my dreams/nightmares. It always ends the same, the spiders are running at me and I am filled with absolute terror and Then wake up screaming.
    Is the spider my totem animal? If so, then why am I so afraid of it?

  21. Joe says:

    There is a quality or qualities that you need to learn from the spiders, which is also probably why you’re here.

  22. Ashley Nelson says:

    I’m afraid of spiders… N yet they are always in my life around particular parts of my life. Why am I so frightened by them if they are my spirit animal?

  23. Ole Tersløse Jensen says:

    Hi Shayne
    I don’t think the spider is your totem animal, because you seem afraid of them in your dreams.

    Many people are scared of spiders, and I think you’ll benifit from thinking of the spider as a psychological element. Try to find out why you are afraid of them, what happens in your life, when you dream of them etc.

    When you meet a kind of spiritual advice you’ll often get af feeling that you are on the right track. Fear will not be the major response/feeling.

    If the spiders don’t help you, they aren’t spiritual guides for you, I think. And you shouldn’t give them a role in your life that they don’t deserve

  24. Jasmin Blackwell-Griffin says:

    I believe as nothing is truly good or bad, only our perception tells us so, Spider is simply a guide, like all things. In that case of meeting with fear through spiders guidance, she is introducing you to your shadow self. These subconscious limitations, vibrations etc can serve to hold back our full authentic expression. How does your fear limit your personal power in life ? Are you at the driving wheel of your life ? Where do you give your power away out of fear ? What past fears no longer serve your current situation ? The fear you feel originates in the subconscious and or inheritance. We can be raised to fear spiders. Was someone around you as a child afraid of them ? Or indeed is the fear something deeper ? Either way fear can be an inherent part of who we are, a survival response. It is up to us to expand our conscious awareness of our self beyond the fear or bring understanding to what the fear means and represents to us individually.

  25. Emily says:

    I had a very vivid dream as a kid, probably 3-4 years old, that billions of spiders were all over my room and crawling up my bed. I shared a room with my sister so I ran to my parents room, at some point woke up, and then screamed at my parents that there were spiders everywhere. They went to the room and I was astonished to realize they were gone.

    Since then, I’ve always known if I am dreaming, and can sometimes control the dream. I think I have only been scared in a dream one other time in my life and I am 27. I uncovered repressed memories last year that I had gone through some abuse/trauma about the same time I had this dream.

    Also, I’ve always loved spiders since then as well. They fascinate me. There were always daddy long legs in my house growing up and I loved them.

    Recently I’ve been seeing a lot of synchronicities of webs and of symmetry in my life. Curious if anyone on here has any thoughts.
