How can I interpret my dream about a spider?
The spider, which weaves its web to trap its prey represents a person or a situation that ensnares the dreamer. Of course, we think of associating this spider to the smothering, devouring, possessive mother, but it can be any member of the family too.

The spider weaves its web to imprison and trap. In a dream, it represents the fear of not being able to detach ourselves from our moms and live an independent life. If in your dream you see several spiders crawling around, they may represent several members of your family. Either you suffer from their possessiveness, or you find that they do not help you to cut the cord, to live and to blossom alone. In short, you feel imprisoned by your loved ones in real life.
