Just like any other creature, the black widow merely wants to live and not be bothered by humans or anything else for that matter. Leave it alone and it will leave you alone. It does not have an intense bloodlust or a desire to go after you and hurt you like you might have been taught by the media. If you are scared of one or get in its way; just try sidestepping it and going around it. This is the best course of action to take when you are bothered by a black widow.
However, if you dream that you are very close to a black widow, because of our cultural associations relating the spider to death, we tend to be afraid that the thing will kill us. Thus, we attribute thoughts of pure death and evil to the hapless spider. If you are too close to one of these creatures in your dreams it means that you are too close to death. Something is going on in your life currently which makes you feel like you are in danger of being hurt. You are participating in a dangerous activity and should cease immediately.
Chances are you know what that activity is. Heck, if it was all about danger, then you probably wouldnвЂ™t be doing it, but you still choose to for some reason so there must be some other benefit to it, such as a rush. For many people the black widow can be a symbol for drugs or for extreme sports or anything else that has the potential to cause dangerous injuries. DonвЂ™t be afraid though. It may be rough to have to stop doing what you love doing, but it is only in service of yourself and you need to realize just how important you are to yourself and to others. Do not take your own life for granted.
To dream that you are a black widow is to think of yourself as dangerous. You are afraid that something you do will result in the death of a loved one. It might not even be someone you love, but just the general public. You feel as if everything you touch automatically falls into danger and you would do anything to be able to cease from feeling this way, but it is not always so simple. You feel this way for a reason, so you must have some past experience with causing pain to others. Try to work through that in therapy or by talking to someone that you really trust. Ultimately the understanding of a friend may be all you really need to succeed. Sometimes all anyone needs is a good friend to talk to in order to help them on their way to self discovery. You are not a monster and you are not a killer. You have the power to change your own mind and thoughts. Use it for your own good.
