What does it mean when you dream of a spider in the following scenarios? 🕷️🕸️

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.

Dreaming of a spider implies you have a smothering mother

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.

Having a dream about a spider crawling over you represents serenity

If, during your dream, a spider climbs on you, walks quietly over your hand, climbs up your leg, and you don’t feel afraid, congratulations, because you have gained in serenity. Perhaps previously, an aggressive and possessive environment imposed by your family and close friends was difficult to bear. However, you now know how to deal with this situation and how to stand up for yourself. But, here too, the relationship with motherhood is present. The spider you see can also mean that you are ready to become a mother or that you are living your role as a mother in a more serene way.

Through this dream, you become aware that those around you are trying to slow you down in the realization of your desires and ambitions.

Let's not forget that the spider is also the web it weaves. In some dreams, you may even see just its web. Dreaming of its web also means:

  • If you see a web in your dream, without a spider, it means that you are at ease in your relationships and in communion with those around you. The problem arises if this web is present in your room. In this dream, this web indicates that you are suffering from sexual dissatisfaction.
  • If in your dream you see a spider spinning its web, it means that you will soon be promoted, your hard work will finally be rewarded.
  • If you dream that you are getting rid of a spider's web, it is a sign that trials await you.

What it means if you dream of killing a spider

You succeed in thwarting underground plans that prevented you from achieving what you want. You are progressing in your capacity for independence and autonomy. Likewise, you are on the verge of freeing yourself from certain obstacles. Become aware of your ability to free yourself from certain bonds that are holding you back and preventing you from achieving your full potential. Continue on your path to autonomy and freedom because you are well on your way.

What does it mean to dream about a spider attacking you?

A spider that bites you in your dreams is no harmless feat. It seeks to warn you and to "wake you up". Its bite is like an alarm signal that wants to protect you by asking you to "become aware" of your condition. So the question is simple: are you in denial? What are you hiding from yourself? Are you stuck in a web, your web? It is likely that knots are forming in and around you, and that your mind has chosen not to look at them. And if it's burying its head in the sand, it's doing so to spare you. But the tarantula that stings you, warns you gently and invites you to look frankly at the situation in which you find yourself in order to get out of it as soon as possible.

We all seek to understand our dreams, so, now that you know more about the spiders that can appear in your nights, discover the meaning of an orange cat. Although this may sound frightening, it’s actually a good omen.
