    What Does It Mean When You Dream About Spiders? 

    By on January 23, 2016

    Creepy crawlies can leave your skin tingling after you see them in a dream. Although spiders can be frightening, they are not always a sign of something negative. If you continuously dream about spiders, the followings options are the most common dream interpretations.

    You Feel Trapped

    Spiders are best known for the webs that they weave. When an insect flies through the web, they become trapped and unable to move. Due to this, dreaming about spiders can mean that you feel entrapped by something negative in your life. It can also mean that you are stuck in your relationship or feel like someone is especially clingy in your normal life. On occasion, this can be positively interpreted as feeling enthralled or allured by someone. The presence of a web in the dream makes this dream interpretation even more likely.

    Prepare for Your Future

    Webs are amazing things. Unlike birds’ nests, webs are created entirely from the spider’s own body. They weave a web that provides them with a home and their food. This aspect of web building is a metaphorical representation of the web of life and destiny. In a way, we all play a role in creating our individual futures. Although you cannot control everything that happens to you, you have a strong role in how you react to each event. When you dream about a spider, it can symbolize that you are beginning to pave the way toward your future. It can demonstrate that you are ready to work and be rewarded for your efforts.

    During the dream, pay attention to what happens. If you are watching the spider spin the web, it could be symbolic to time. This dream interpretation is typically a sign that you are waiting for something in your life to happen before you can take action.


    A fear of spiders is one of the most common phobias that people have. There is most likely an evolutionary reason why people learned to fear spiders, since some spiders are poisonous. Due to this phobia, dreaming about spiders can be a terrifying, fearful experience. When this happens in your dream, it can mean that you are worried about how things are going to turn out in your future.

    If you dreamed that you were bitten in the dream, it can indicate that you have some type of spiritual, emotional or mental wound. In your normal life, it is common to be hurt by someone else. Even if you try to get over this pain, the memory of it can remain in your subconscious and cause dreams about it from time to time. Although a spider bite is normally a sign that you have an emotional wound, you may also dream about a spider bite if you were actually bitten by a mosquito while you were sleeping.

    Other Dream Interpretations:

    A Climbing Spider: This is a sign that your desires will come true.
    A Baby Spider: A new relationship is beginning.
    A Spider Falling From the Ceiling: You feel unable to break free of your relationship.
    Eaten by a Spider: You feel like a female influence like a mother is devouring your personality within hers.
    You Eat a Spider: You have regained control over the situation or your relationship.

      I had a dream a about big hairy spider in my brothe’s room.I tried not going near it for about 2 days . Then it reached the bathroom where I was in. But I managed to get out of there . While getting out , on the way to tell my mom about a big hairy spider , we both first saw one in the kitchen where our housemaid was probably cutting vegetables. I probably wanted to tell her to kill one spider just when we saw that female spider, it was bigger and leaner than the hairy one, and it started giving birth to lots of baby spiders. I didn’t like the scene and we went to the living room to see another big spider in the same scene. My mom and I decided to go upstairs to kill that spider but I went past its web too near the spider while my mom was breaking the other parts of the web . The spider came straight and was on my legs , which was very scary. The dream ended here with me and my mom looking at each other . She first looked at spider in shock . I was thinking of using my hands and jerk it off.

      I keep dreaming a spider is crawling on me, if Its not on me it’s trying to get on me. It’s usually a brown recluse.
      The last two times was it was in my hair after I walked in a web and I shook it out and it kept jumping to get back on.
      Last night it was on the back of my neck and my husband got it off.
      Help! I have no feminine energy or mother in my life other than my mother in law and she’s not overbearing. I lost my mother in sept.
