Dream about a spider

The spider can often appear in our lives as a symbol or spirit animal to help us better understand and survive difficult situations.

What does it mean to dream about spiders?

Many people are afraid of spiders. Spiders are on the list of what people are most afraid of. Fortunately, when you learn to understand the spider as a symbol and learn about its positive qualities, you can even love spiders!

The spider and our shadows

We often perceive the spider as something bad and negative, when in fact it is not. In nature, spiders play an important role in a balanced ecosystem. We can learn a lot from the spiders in our dreams. Each of us has negative qualities. We all have fears and anxieties and are capable of experiencing negative emotions – such as hatred, loathing, greed, jealousy, revenge, and sadness. A healthy person must learn to balance these feelings.

It is not natural to simply reject negative emotions – we can’t just remove the bad parts of ourselves. Dreams that involve things we fear remind us that the real solution is to learn to heal these negative feelings and transform them into positive qualities and strengths. Only when we can balance our dark and light sides can we have peace in our hearts and thoughts.

We often associate spiders with darkness and the unknown – seeing a spider in a dream is often a sign that there are hidden aspects to our emotions or situations in our lives. Most of us feel fear of the unknown.


Dreams about spiders and their meaning
