Dream of Spider
In the spider three different symbolic meanings converge, and sometimes overlap: creative capacity (the spider weaving its web), aggressiveness (having a predatory instinct), and the fabric itself (such as a spiral net equipped with a center). That said, dreaming of a spider is interpreted in various ways. In most cases, it is a negative dream because the web it weaves symbolizes the trap in which you are about to fall. It also represents loneliness, isolation, and disputes. On the other hand, if the spider has woven a beautiful fabric that produces admiration, it means that the forces of the universe will act in your favor. It is time to intervene because you are at your full potential. The oneiric spiders can also represent the subject’s fears. Perhaps you feel trapped into a web of deception or agitated emotions. Sigmund Freud believed that spiders were overprotective mothers holding their children (innocent victims) under a sense of possession (web). Arachnophobia is an instinctive effect for humans since ancient times, the time when poisonous spiders were common. Such a dream merely reviews that fear to express that there are things in real life that cause sadness. Other ancient superstitions, however, consider that dreaming of spiders is a positive omen.
