    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.

    Fear

    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 dreamt I was sitting on my usual couch space. A big spider ran across the floor. It was brown. I called for my husband. The spider was under the other couch. I was telling my husband not to kill it. He put it in a huge class. The spider used its legs to cling on. My husband put it over the wall. Thanks

      In my dream my husband was openly flirting with a woman in front of me. I threw water at them and then I walked into a different room and saw a spider on the wall. I thought to myself in my dream “well he’s not here to help me I guess I have to take care of it” meaning I need to kill the spider.

        This dream is a reflection of your various influences in your life. Allow the negative aspects of this dream to fade. If your partner is cheating on you, then speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. There is no reason to harm the spider. You only need to learn to overcome your fears. Spend additional time with your partner, as this will strengthen your relationship. Have a great day, Elizabeth!

      Hi, I just woke up from a dream about a small black spider that, in the dream, was me and my boyfriend’s baby. I carried it around in a car seat and was taking care of it and was worried about losing it or anything happening to it. In the beginning of the dream it was an actual baby, but then it became a small black spider. As I was carrying the car seat into a department store with the spider inside, it started to crawl out of the blanket we had for it and then it jumped onto my chest. I immediately freaked out and started frantically brushing at my chest to try to get it off (I’m afraid of spiders in real life) but I couldn’t see it anywhere. Then two men walked into the store and said something to me that I don’t remember and I told them they “should have seen me freaking out just now.” Once they came in, though, I was calm again. Then I woke up. Also, for reference, my boyfriend sent me an Instagram post about spiders which I read last night before I went to sleep. It had a photo of a spider on it which looked much like the one in my dream.
      Are you able to explain this? Thanks.

      I dreamed that I was in my bedroom, glancing at the wall, and I saw a gold-colored spider, small, crawling down the wall. I went into my kitchen to get a cup and a piece of paper to catch the spider without hurting it. I took the cup and paper into the bedroom and managed to get the spider into the cup. But the paper wasn’t big enough to cover the whole top, and the spider was able to bite me on my fingers. But when it was biting me, which was painful, the spider suddenly looked like the Dsney character Jiminy Cricket. That’s all I remember.
      WHAT ON EARTH DOES THAT SIGNIFY?

      Last night i had a dream about 2 Spiders crawling on my left hand. One is bigger than the other. The bigger spider is black and smaller spider is dark brown. The bigger spider is forming a sticky web on my left hand while the smaller spider is just following the bigger spider wherever it goes. Since im worried about too much web on my hand i tried to remove without harming the spiders but I can’t.

      I want to know the meaning of my dream.

      I dreamt of two darker colored spiders and their owners,a mother and a daughter,who I knew disliked me.
      The spiders were terrifying to me and they didn’t keep them caged. I remember they told me that in their area,where I was due to something happening to my home,the spiders were everywhere-and then I began to see more of the.
      But those same two spiders were my main fear and the younger of the two women in my dream knew this and found it funny. She laughed and threatened to put them on me as I begged her not to,moved away,etc.
      The dream ended after I kept seeing the two spiders everywhere,and ones that looked like them-and I ended up in a moving bus-type vehicle,with the two women in a seat near me.
      The younger of the two picked up one of the two spiders and put it near my face. I begged her to stop. She did only to do it again,laughing as I begged her to stop and covered my mouth/face as it came closer.
      The last time she brought it up to my face I woke up(and woke my fiancé up)screaming and covering my face.
      Can you help interpret this? I am so afraid of spiders and this dream got to me.
      I know my description was a little crazy but I did my best-I do remember too being in a bathroom (it may have been my bathroom st home)and killing spiders that looked like the main two in my dream but a little smaller. They were coming from the sink drain.

      In my spider dream there was this beautiful Daddy Long Leg in the palm of my hand, which was feeding off of a honey cone. I was walking down a path, walking slowly as not to disturb the spider while it feasted on the honey. Somewhere on my journey the spider jump off my hand, I felt sad but said to myself that the spider will find it’s way back to me. Sure enough somewhere on my journey the spider found me, jumped back into the palm of my hand, continued to eat…it was like I could feel its smile, it’s happiness and the spider felt my happiness. It was a beautiful peaceful dream.

        Dreams about spiders are reflections of a common fear. You may not be afraid of spiders, as they may be a reflection of something else. Allow the negative aspects of this dream to fade. If you find that you are afraid of something in the future, then allow that fear to influence you in a positive direction. Treat everyone in your life with kindness and compassion. Have a great day, Adele!
